We had a wonderful stay in Calella at the end of August. The apartment was spacious with two balaconies and the views were amazing. The kitchen and utility room was well equipped and well laid out. We found the apartment clean, modern and comfortable. The pool area, little play area and tennis courts as well as the grounds were well maintained and the other residents and guests were friendly. The walk in to town of an evening was lovely with plenty of restaurants, bars, cafes and shops. Calella itself is very charming and we also walked to Llfranc and El Golfet. I highly recommend visiting Girona (this was my husband’s favourite part of the holiday). What a beautiful city! The old part of the town was just stunning. We also drove to Figueres to see the Dalí Theatre Museum which was very impressive. Overall a fantastic holiday enjoyed by all.
The main difference with this apartment and some others we have stayed in is that this very much feels like someone's second home rather than just a holiday let. A lot of love has clearly gone into the renovation and it is a comfortable, relaxing and very well presented place to stay.
Jean-Cristophe has probably been the most communicative and responsive host we've ever had and although only becoming a host recently has tried to think of everything - his instruction/info book is most comprehensive I have ever seen! Special mention also to Lex, a local property manager who helped us with check in/check out and provided us with loads of useful info about the area. You get the impression that between Jean-Cristophe and Lex no request would be ruled out and they will go the extra mile to try and accommodate which makes a huge difference especially when travelling with young children as we were.
The apartment is only a 2 minute stroll to the village centre and beach. Tamariu is one of the most beautiful places we have stayed although it was quite busy even towards the end of the season. When we found the beach too crowded we drove a short distance to Cala de Castell which is well worth a visit.
As with any apartment in a block, we had a bit of noise from other residents but nothing excessive and as advertised, the very solid doors do provide excellent sound insulation from the road outside. We didn't find the road especially noisy and enjoyed sitting on the balcony which is not overlooked by anyone and gazing out at the trees.
If you are looking for an apartment with character and charm in a wonderful location and with hosts that care about your wellbeing, this place is hard to beat.
