About Sarah Stalker

We were a family of 5 and we relocated to Spain 5 years ago to experience something different.

The children have attend a local school in Palamos and have become fluent in both Catalan and Spanish.

We love the area and all it has to offer and for 9 months of the year this is our home so we hope you enjoy your stay in our villa and feel that you are part of our family.

Sarah Stalker purchased this villa in 2006

Why Sarah Stalker chose Calonge

The villa was originally built as our holiday home. We fell in love with the views, beaches, mountains and cities all within easy access of Calonge.

As we bought the property off plan we had an opportunity to design the villa to our liking and we opted for an open plan kitchen/dining room/lounge with easy access through patio doors to outside.

We have one bedroom with en-suite located on the ground floor with 3 bedrooms upstairs & 2 bathrooms upstairs.

What makes this villa unique

The villa's unique benefits include the swimming pool which is located on the same level as the kitchen/dining room and lounge so you can see young children playing at all times. The layout of the villa, garden & pool area was specifically designed for families with young children in mind. We feel this is a really important and from our experience we know that there are very few villas in this area that are in an elevated position that have this aspect in mind.

The garden is flat, with a grassed lawn so provides an idea play area for the children and sun bathing area for the adults.

The under cover al-fresco area next to the kitchen houses an large BBQ which is perfect for entertaining.

Great villa, very clean and in good location

  • 4 of 5

Worked well for a family of 5 with three children 7 to 11 years. A good base from which to explore the Costa Brava coast, with good transport links.

Happiness, Relaxation with a twist of home

  • 5 of 5

I was initially impressed by Sarah, to whom was friendly, informative and happy to help in any way she could: Her advice in and around car-hire, local restaurants and places of interest were invaluable. Upon reaching the villa, we realised almost immediately, that we had made the right decision: It was beautifully decorated, wonderfully arranged, providing a great vantage to have a few drinks, relax and appreciate the wonderful climate. The facilities were great, including pool, spa and barbecue. The whole experience was a painless, unadulterated joy.

Luxury living

  • 5 of 5

We hired a car from Girona airport (essential) and had a a nice hour and a half drive to Calonge and Villa Zara. When we arrived we were so happy as Villa Zara was absolutely beautiful. Large airy rooms fitted to a very high standard, an amazing huge kitchen inside and a fabulous summer kitchen outside,the very large pool set in a pretty garden offered gorgeous and changing views through out the day depending on the position of the sun, which is in the garden all day! When the sun goes down into the jacuzzi for more bubbles (if you know what I mean) Villa Zara has all the mod cons you would expect and more. The surrounding areas are really pretty and you can find some great value restaurants close by. Playa de Aro was my favourite with a good choice of everything. I have recommended this area and Villa Zara to friends since my return as its perfect for a relaxing family holiday. Thank you to Mrs Stalker for making our stay perfect.
