Xavier the owner met us with a warm welcome and showed us everything we needed to know about the villa, how to work the satellite TV, wifi code etc.The property is very well equipped with plenty of crockery, cutlery, kitchen equipment, two fridge freezers etc. Outside we made good use of the pool, barbecue, trampoline, badminton net, log burner. We normally go out every day but the property was so good we had a couple of chill days just hanging out at the villa. We visited four beaches along the coast, each about an hour's drive from the villa (Cala Truemal and Platja de Castell were our favourites) and drove into Barcelona for a day. We used an app called Parclick which got us a whole day secure parking at the Avinguda de Rius i Taulet right next to the Magic Fountain for ten euros. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a quiet and spacious retreat or anyone looking for a great base if you don't mind driving an hour or so to get to the great beaches. The driving was easy with the aid of my trusty satnav. I set it to avoid tolls to use the scenic routes and this probably only added ten minutes to an hour's journey. If you have a rainy day and like a bit of retail therapy, the Gran Jonquera shopping outlet is only approx. 40 minutes north as well. It is one of the few shopping centres open on Sundays and includes a supermarket. The villa ticked all the boxes for us, with a bedroom each for our three teenagers to have some space of their own. The bedroom layout would also suit two couples with a swarm of younger kids - you just would not get such spacious and peaceful accommodation like this on the coast for this price.
Location excellent for exploring Girona and Girona excellent for exploring the area. The apartment was small but good use of space and perfect for the 4 of us. A/C was very welcome and ceiling fans for the bedrooms. The only issue was the parking. Free our even cheap spaces are at a premium and the underground car park nearby was very expensive. This only caused us problems on 1 of our 7 days. I would still go back in a flash.
