Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Calonge - Casa Canyella

Luxury family villa: Private Pool, gardens, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps six.

Casa Canyella is a pretty Spanish villa with elevated views across the valley to the ancient sea port of Palamos, and the Mediterranean beyond.

Casa Canyella has private gardens with brick built BBQ, as well as stone and tiled terraces around the property.

Fast (40 Megabits per second) WiFi is provided free for our guests

You can swim in the pool and gaze down upon Calonge Castle in the valley below!

The accommodation is all on one level, with French doors that lead straight onto the patio area by the pool. The 9 metre by 5 metre pool has Roman steps at the shallow end, and a pool ladder at the deep end.

The villa has off-road parking for two cars, and has Mediterranean-style gardens.

To see Casa Canyella prices , select 'Prices' at the top of this page, then:

Select 'View all prices' (under Prices & Availability'.

Casa Canyella has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, an American-style fully-fitted kitchen with large fridge and freezer, ceramic hob, fan oven and dishwasher.

It also has a spacious lounge with air-conditioning for summer, and a wood-burning stove (brilliant at Christmas).

The gardens are very secluded and occupy about a quarter of an acre for privacy and perfect relaxation.

First discovered by the Greeks and Romans, the beach alongside the bay of Roses at L'Escala houses the museum of Roman & Greek ruins. This museum has to be visited along with the excellent restaurants at St Marti (a brilliant day out).

Figueres is the birthplace of Salvador Dali. Born in 1904, he must surely be the most memorable member of the art world ever!

The Dali Museum at Figueres is mind-blowing!

Casa Canyella is a place where you have fabulous sea views, your own pool, and yet you are only 5 minutes from white sandy beaches. Soak up the sun in the garden or stay cool indoors with the air-conditioned lounge - Your choice!

About Ian & Carol Weston

We've owned Casa Canyella since 2003, and have always enjoyed holidaying in Spain.

We first visited this area some 30 years ago and were impressed by it's delightful coves and beaches. It has never been over-developed.

When you've spent all year working on television programmes and films it's an ideal getaway - a place to come and unwind.

Ian & Carol Weston purchased this villa in 2003

Why Ian & Carol Weston chose Baix Emporda

Traditional quaint Spanish villa, loads of outside space combined with spectacular views, fabulous pool, and only 5 minutes by car from the beach...

What makes this villa unique

Casa Canyella has fabulous views of the Mediterranean and onwards to Palamos as well as overlooking Calonge and the neighbouring valley.

Geckos an be seen basking on the terrace under the mid-day sun (although they're very nervous and soon disappear when people are around).

The front balcony completes the 360 degree vista and is great for the setting sun at the end of the day.

Casa Canyella provides an excellent standard of accommodation together with air-conditioning, satellite and internet UK TV and a local representative for the benefit of our guests.

We have many guests return year after year - Casa Canyella has everything you need for a chilled out relaxing holiday.

40 Megabits per second WiFi is provided in the villa. Free public WiFi is available along the beach-front at Sant Antoni, as well as the main square in Calonge (Placa de la Concordia).

WiFi is also provided free throughout Platja d'Aro and in most restaurants and bars.

Website: The property has it's own website, with more pictures and information at: costa-brava-villa.co.uk.

A beautiful family home

  • 5 of 5

As soon as you walk into Casa Canyella you realise this is no ordinary holiday let, but a cosy family home. Immaculately clean, comfy beds and soft fluffy towels. Everything you need in the kitchen to cook and plenty of space indoors and outdoors to sit for a relaxing meal. Amazing views surrounding the villa and a lovely big pool. Communication with Ian, the owner, couldn't have been better. He was very quick to answer any questions and was a great help to us. It was a wonderful place to stay in and we were sad to leave it. We hope to visit it

Situated in the backyard of Platje d' Aro.

  • 5 of 5

The villa is fully equipped and is beautifully located near all the must sees in the area. The swimming pool and BBQ makes it complete.

The road leading up towards the villa needs a renovation but thats obvious nothing the owner can do anything about.

Overal a perfect vacation home and highly recommended.

Great Costa Brava Villa

  • 5 of 5

Colonge is well situated close to coastal villages but away from the crowds. The villa was ideal for our party of 3 couples with 3 full bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, large living/dining room and fully equipped kitchen. Well decorated. Outside seating on 3 sides to follow (or avoid) the sun. Doors on two sides to allow cross ventilation. Great view of the Mediterranean. Pool freshly renovated and maintained by next door neighbour (but too cool in June for swimming). Lots of helpful information available. Local agents (Jan and Peter) always available and another great source of local information. Booking was easy and Ian responded quickly to all emails plus their website was very helpful.

Excellent Villa

  • 5 of 5

Very nice attractive villa with great views. Well-maintained and clean throughout with a good sized pool. Lots of attractive beaches and towns within short driving distance. Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a comfortable well equiped villa in a quiet setting. Car hire essential due to location.

Perfect place to enjoy life and summer!

  • 5 of 5

If you want to stay in a place where you can really relax and feel like you are a part of spanish people- you should travel to Casa Canyella. The surrounding is peaceful and local, the view to the bay is just something I could look at all day and especially at night. People are nice and helpful at Calonge, it's a small village but absolutely a place worth seeing.

Casa Canyella is a lovely villa and the owners have made a lot of work so that we visitors can just enjoy our stay! The Villa is big enough for six persons to feel like everyone has their own space. There is everything you need on a holiday- you can barbeque or make food indoors, if it's raining (it does that sometimes also in summer) you can listen to the music or just look at the seaside and the wonderful sunsets!

We did enjoy our stay at Casa Canyella, we hope you do that too !!!

Car: recommended

Situated at the head of a quiet cul-de-sac on a small urbanisation at the very heart of the Costa Brava, the villa is a 5 min drive from our local blue-flag beach at St. Antoni, and two minutes from the medieval village of Calonge. Calonge is well known for it's Castle, weekly market (Thursday) and classical musical festivals throughout the summer. It also has a permanent exhibition of paintings and handicrafts. There is a well-stocked supermarket within walking distance.

Sant. Antoni de Calonge, with it's long white sandy beach, has many good restaurants & shops. There are several excellent restaurants within walking distance of the Villa.

The seaside towns of Platja d'Aro and San Feliu de Guixols have a lively night-life. You can even hire a segway to ride along Platja d'Aro seafront.

The drive to Tossa del Mar is simply stunning and the Salvador Dali museum at Figueres has to be seen at least once.

The villa is well served by Girona Airport (30 min), Barcelona Airport (60 min) and Reus Airport. Ryanair, Jet 2 and Easy-Jet all have year-round regular flights.

Other Activities: There are many local festivals including many international Jazz festivals, Seafood - 'Gamba de Palamos' and Sant Feliu de Guixol's 'Blue-Fish' festival etc.

Casa Canyella is a brilliant villa with hilltop location, superb views,close to the sea, shops and night-life and yet you can swim in your own pool and be be totally private, chilled out and away from it all.
