About the property

Beach apartment Costa Brava

Two separate luxury 3 bedroom front line apartments on a beach hidden in a small cove in between Playa de Aro (Platja D'aro) and San Antoni de Calonge on the Costa Brava near Girona. They can be rented separately or together to accommodate either 6 or 12 people. Completely renovated with modern, high quality furnishings. Sleeps 6 or 12 when renting both apartments together.

Free WiFi

The property has free parking for one car per apartment

The property has a large lounge/dinning area with a dazzling view of the Mediterranean. 1 double, 1 twin and 1 single/twin, comfortably sleeps 6 people. 1 bathroom with luxury shower, 1 toilet room. Outside there is a terrace with a table and chairs for al fresco dinning whilst gazing at the extensive views of the warm turquoise sea and the sandy cove.

The beach is accessed by walking downstairs, out of the gate and directly onto the beach. For self catering it includes an oven, dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, microwave plus it has a TV and Nespresso coffee machine.

Playa De Aro, with its multitude of shops, restaurants and bars is a 10min walk. From April to Sept there is a quiet beach restaurant/bar with great seafood and tapas steps away along the sandy beach.

As you head north along the Costa Brava coast leaving the large 2km beach of Playa De Aro (Platja D'aro) behind you, you pass five coves on your right. They are hidden from view, but if you walked along the coast path (cami de ronda) you would see the breath taking view and crystal clear Mediterranean sea lapping these quiet coves. The fifth cove along is Cala Cap Roig and the apartment is situated directly on the beach, hidden from view from the road. It is accessed from its own parking space down a flight of stairs.

The front line apartment is one of 9 and it is situated on the ground floor of a 3 floor building. The cami de ronda (coastal path) is both to the left and right of the property along the beach. Nearest airports are Girona (37mins), Barcelona (90mins), Reus (140mins) Perpignan (100mins). All of these airports are served by Low Cost airlines and have major hire car companies at the airport terminal.

It is between the Hotel Silken San Jorge (san jordi) and Hotel Cap Roig. The Hotel Spa Cala del Pi is close to the Hotel Silken San Jorge. Cala Bella dona (bella dona cove) is 100m to the right. El Celler de Can Roca (currently voted number No.1 best restaurant in the world) is 40mins away in Girona. Figueres with the Salvador Dali musuem is 50mins away.

Playa de Aro is very close and has a long beautiful beach with diving platforms and water rides in the Summer.

There are many other lovely beaches up and down the coast and make for great exploring. Many sports activities are available locally from scuba diving to water skiing to golf at Club Gold D'aro Masnou.

There is a cycle path that is 36km long that links Playa de Aro with Girona.

There is a waterpark, tennis club, and Pitch and Putt course all close by.

Or you could simply spend your holiday relaxing on the terrace of our apartment watching the sea and the warm waves lapping at the shore on the sandy beach.

Why Stephen chose Calonge

The view from the balcony and the direct access to the beach from the apartment. Very picturesque and great location. We spent 3 years looking for an apartment that was front line to the beach with no road or buildings in front of the apartment. You simply walk down the steps from the apartment onto the beach.

What makes this apartment unique

It is right on the beach in a small cosy cove. Yet it is only a 15min walk to Platja d`aro with all of its shops, bars and restaurants.

Great apartment with a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed as a family of 5 (2 couples and a single) in the lower apartment. We were a bit unsure about the space inside when booking but we needn't have worried. It was actually larger than we thought from looking at the pictures, although we tended to spent most of our time at the apartment on the balcony eating, drinking and looking out to sea. Everything is modern and convenient. Big fridge, nice outdoor table and chairs plenty of storage in the bedrooms. Both the bathroom and additional toilet have mirrors with lights and plug sockets for drying hair etc. The location is amazing. The bay is beautiful and far enough away from the built up centre but close enough to walk when needed for restaurants etc. I would recommend this apartment for any beach lovers. Swimming in the sea and snorkelling here was great. Convenient showers below the apartment to clean off before going back to the apartment for drinks, lunch etc. We would definitely love to return here one day.

Fantastic sea views...ultra modern and spotless!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed 1 week late July. On arrival first thing noted it was cleaned to a very high standard. Kids were happy with Nintendo Wii, DVDs... 3 bedrooms meant kids shared and luggage stored in spare made lots of space. Superb kitchen with marble work surfaces, new units and Nespresso machine., Bosch washing machine... Balcony made al-fresco dining perfect. Short walk downstairs the onto the beach - cannot ask for more! Parking space and private secluded gardens meant it felt very private.

Fully recommend this to anyone wanting to be close to the beach for the kids! (especially quick breaks upstairs to wash off the sand! and grab a Vodka &Tonic!)

My family (with 2 kids under 6) and I stayed at this apartment in August 2015. We stayed in the lower apartment for a week and had a fantastic time. The apartment is really well done up, with 3 bedrooms, a lovely bathroom, great kitchen, lounge and lovely balcony. The view you see from the photos is what you get, and in a way doesn't quite do it justice. The sea is literally a stone's throw away from the balcony and if you like the sound of the waves gently sending you off to sleep then this place is for you!

The beach in front is just perfect, with lovely snorkelling, warm(ish) water and wall to wall sunshine. There's actually 2 bays, with the one in front of the apartment having bigger waves and then there's a small bay to the left which has no waves (and is perfect for toddlers who aren't so keen on the sea.) To top it all off there's a beach restaurant on this beach (the only beach restaurant we could find on any beach nearby) which serves lovely Spanish cuisine from lunch until early evening.

There's even a few nice hotels nearby so when the kids tired of the sea we could take them up for a swim in their pool (and they didn't seem to mind).

The owners are both lovely and very accommodating, and both clearly very passionate about the area. I had a little issue with the shutter (caused by my own stupidity I might add) and they were very helpful in getting it resolved.

We normally holiday on the South of France but after spending a week at Platja d'Aro we've seen the light! The beaches are 10 X better, the weather is just as good and it's much better value for money.

So we'll be back! And I'd certainly recommend this apartment to anyone looking for an amazing sea/ beach/ sun break.

Best Vacation EVER!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, my daughters (16 & 14) and I stayed in the lower apartment (Blue kitchen) for a week and had the best vacation we have ever had. The apartment is very nice, very clean, modern and well-equipped. The view from the balcony and master bedroom is stunning. The beach is fabulous - secluded & beautiful. You can rent lounge chairs and umbrellas or just lay in the sand. The snorkeling is amazing with a rocky cove where there are numerous marine life peacefully living 10 feet into the water. There is a fun restaurant with good food and drink right on the beach. A short drive North or South and you come to small towns loaded with shopping and great places to eat especially seafood and tapas! You can also hike on a seaside trail North or South and explore rocky outcrops, more beautiful beaches and stunning views. The owners (Gemma and Steve) are very helpful. They gave us great directions and provided us with lots of useful information about the apartment and surrounding area. We even met our neighbors and have made life-long friends. I cannot recommend this property enough!

prachtige locatie

  • 5 of 5

Bij aankomst mochten we direct onze auto parkeren op het terrein terwijl het appartement schoongemaakt werd, zodat we al lekker konden genieten op het mooie strand direct voor het appartement. Het appartement is super schoon en van alle gemakken voorzien. Airco, wasmachine, droger, vaatwasser, ruime koel/vrieskast, nespresso etc. Heerlijke ruime keuken en genoeg kastruimte op de kamers. Het ziet er erg modern uit van binnen wat je misschien van buiten niet verwacht. Je loopt de deur uit en bent via het trapje meteen op het strand. In omgeving veel mooie baaitjes die je ook kan bereiken via een aangelegd pad langs de kust. Op het strand is ook een leuk standtentje waar je kan lunchen en op donderdag vrijdag en zaterdag ook in de avond kan eten. De tuin is prachtig aangelegd, alleen de trappen waren een uitdaging met als onze loodzware koffers voor 6 personen. Al met al een lokatie waar we graag terug zouden keren!
