We have mainly good things to say about the property, but we also have a few disappointments we should mention.
Firstly the location is excellent. It was a short walk (about 15 minutes) into l'Escala where the sea-fronted old town is full of interesting shops, tapas bars and restaurants. From the villa it is also easy to walk along a delightful coastal path, past the Greek and Roman ruins of Empuries, and in 25 minutes arrive at St Marti d'Empuries (good restaurants). There are many sandy beaches and coves along the way, with a few beach cafes as well. The first beach you pass on this path, also seemed to be dog friendly.
The villa itself was clean and well prepared for our visit. The little garden and patio were excellent for sitting and eating outside, with a retractable canopy that could be used to shield the outside table and chairs form the sun.The large clean garage easily held two cars.
There were six adults in our party and I would have thought that would be the sensible maximum number the villa would take with comfort. It is advertised to hold up to 8 or 10 people, and it does have beds for this, but the small kitchen, and lounge area will mean the place would feel very crowded. There were, for example only 4 interior dining chairs and TV seating for 4 people. The absence of an electric kettle made heating water on the cooker a slow process. The dedicated shower room is very small, although the larger upstairs bathroom also has a shower over the bath.
Overall we had a very good short holiday and enjoyed our stay at the villa, but had there been 10 of us, things would have beenfar less pleasing.
