Make a Holiday Rental Villa in Platja D’aro, Spain Your Home Away From Home

Nestled snugly on the coastline of the Spanish Costa Brava region of Spain is the former fishing village of Platja D’aro. A Platja D’aro holiday is suitable for all types of travellers as it is now a popular resort both with the Spanish locals themselves and the international visitor.

ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS

5 of 5
Finally a self catering property that actually lives up to its pictures and description. A lovely booking process with Angela and clear concise instructions on how to locate the villa. The property was beautifully decorated, lovely bed linen, extremely comfortable mattresses ( a rare find in a rental)! Everything we could wish for was provided. Angela would occasionally be seen pottering around the property, you only knew because pool towels would be laid out or different pool toys would be put out for the two girls (9 and 12). The girls absolutely loved the pool area, they couldn't quite believe they had such a fabulous space all to themselves, neither could we! Angela is full of local information so use her knowledge to your advantage. If you prefer a quieter more Spanish evening head away from the main resort of Platja D'Aro, we loved Palafrugell where we found the most amazing tapas bar by the church. Would we recommend? Absolutely, would we return? Definitely. Thank you Angela for everything. Chris, Angela, Katie and Ella

Nine and a half out of ten

This is a very pleasant apartment. It is comfortably-furnished, generally fully-equipped and clean. The kitchen area is perfectly functional and the balcony, especially, is a positive feature. It receives both sun and shade for most of the day and has an elevated and open aspect over a wide area of park and gardens. There are a few negative points to mention: 1. There is no CD/DVD player and the tv receives only Spanish stations. 2. There is NO communal swimming pool; instead, visitors have complimentary access to the pool at a local restaurant. However, this arrangement is rather inconvenient, you still have to pay for use of the plastic sun-beds, and the general atmosphere (created by the staff and other users) is not at all congenial. 3.The 15-20 minute walk down to the beach and the town-centre from the apartment is of course an easy one, but it's quite a slog coming back up a fairly steep hill! These are relatively minor criticisms, however, and overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The owners are very easy to deal with and the apartment is an extremely recommendable option.
