Please note: this villa has been totally renovated.
Set in a breathtaking unique location, standing alone among olive groves in the foothills of the Pyrenees above the town of Roses and within easy driving distance of Cadaqués. The traditional stone built house has been renovated to a very high standard with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms making it ideal for 1 or 2 families sharing. Bedrooms 1, 2 and 3 are located upstairs and bedroom 4, with private bathroom, is downstairs with a 'summer kitchen' (equipped to complement outside barbecuing), with direct access to the pool and gardens making it ideal for parents with babies. Baby equipment can be provided on request. The main kitchen is fully equipped and is located upstairs next to the dining room and spacious lounge which opens onto a beautiful terrace with large exterior dining table and chairs. The villa enjoys spectacular views of the pool and gardens, the surrounding National Park of 'Cap de Creus' nature reserve, and the Bay of Roses. The location is so beautiful that it is difficult to leave the villa and pool to enjoy what the local area has to offer!
Roses, a beautiful seaside town with sandy beaches and numerous bars and restaurants, is about 5 minutes drive away, as are the nearest supermarkets. The adjacent countryside of the Cap de Creus National Park allows you to step over the garden wall and walk for miles along quiet trails, passing through olive groves and vineyards and with fabulous views all the way. A short drive takes you to the spectacular scenery to the north of the Bay of Roses, where wooded cliff walks lead to isolated coves (including the one where the world famous El Bulli restaurant is situated), or to any part of the long sandy beach which curves around the bay from Roses to l'Escala. Historical towns and villages like Cadaqués and Figueres, both linked with artist Salvador Dalí, are scattered around. Also nearby are the protected nature reserves of the Aiguamolls wetlands and the Medes islands. It is a great place for walking, cycling, birdwatching and horse riding. Water sports include kite surfing and scuba diving, and you can rent boats and jet skis with or without a licence. Just 5 to 10 minutes from the villa you will find Aqua Brava water park, a go-kart track and the Empuriabrava sky diving centre with its new vertical wind tunnel where you can watch the experts practising at close range or you can have a go yourself!. Perelada golf course is about 20 minutes by car; several others, including PGA Catalunya, within 1 hour. In winter it is possible to ski within 2 hours driving. The villa is located about 30 minutes from the French border.
