Wonderful

5 of 5
Had a wonderful week.. The villa is beautiful and is exactly how it was explained in the description. Excellent facilities. Great communication between both quality estates and the owner. This property was ideal for my family as my mums mobility isn't what it use to be so having the main living area all on one level was perfect. Really can't say anything bad. Highly recommend. Would certainly come back to this villa.

Relaxing week in Costa Brava

5 of 5
We were looking for a quiet place in beautiful settings, with private pool and guaranteed sunshine. And this is exactly what we got. The house is located in a private housing area on a sunny hillside ( evening sun until 19.30) with a stunning view, roughly 10min drive from Platja D'Aro (with well equipped Carrefour supermarket). Area is planned carefully so that the houses are not facing each other, creating almost ideal feeling of solitude and privacy. There is fair amount of forested areas around, one night we were surprised with a strange sound from the backyard - went checking and there was a whole family of wild boars with puppies... our kids were totally exalted and wanted to set up a nightwatch the following nights in order to see them again :-) The house itself has 3 bedrooms. Is tastefully decorated - classic style, not fancy but comfortable and convenient. Terrace is right next to pool - this is where we spent most of our time anyway. The temperature around avg 27deg was just perfect as the hillside location kept away the excess heat You would experience in the cities. Small downside is the absence of AC - in the bedrooms it was too warm (at least for us from nordic country). There was one fan which though slightly helped. The beds are OK, though a little stiff for our preference. The area itself has enough to do for a week - aquapark for kids, good food and nice traditional restaurants ( we preferred the villages of Llafranc and Tamariu in 20min drive), charming medieval towns (Rupit, Pals), Barcelona with it's famous Camp Nou, Gaudi creations etc. Regarding the price level, Costa Brava felt a bit on a higher side. We have been used to rent a villa in Portugal and with comparable quality level the prices for house rent and food were more expensive. Overall, me and my family had a wonderful week and we hope to be back again !
