We cannot emphasise how beautiful and exclusive the town of Calella de Palafrugell really is which makes it an ideal location for family holidays. The town has great walks along the promenades passing old colonial style houses and excellent views of the sea. There is no shortage of good quality restaurants and wine bars in the town most within a few hundred metres. The shops are also within a few hundred metres to purchase food and wines as required. The larger rear balcony of the apartment provides a great location to dine al fresco and to sun bathe.It is south facing and gets direct sunlight for a good part of the day.Access to the apartment is gained via a short normal straight stairway from street level with a hand rail.This is fine for the elderly but the more infirm mray struggle to climb the stairs. The kitchen is modern and has a dishwasher and washing machine. The spacious lounge/dining area provides ample space for everyone to eat or relax.

Beautiful spacious apartment on a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful and spacious apartment, bright and clean and the location is excellent. Gorgeous rooms, comfy beds with 3 different balconys so you could always find a bit of shade. We visited beaches up and down the costa brava and despite it being the busiest time of the year, found the local beach to be our favourite. Wonderful restaurants and friendly people, we fell in love with this part of Spain. We are a family of 5 and we loved the ease of beach access combined with being. On a quiet street. The church bells are loud, you do get used to them though and parking was predictably terrible for peak season. Neither of these things would stop us coming back though!

A well situated and comfortable apartment.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is extremely well situated, nicely decorated and spacious. The rooms are comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped. We enjoyed sitting on the terrace for meals; it easily accommodated the whole party of seven adults. The area is beautiful with good walks, restaurants, sights etc. Plenty to do for a week's stay. Parking was much easier than anticipated.

One or two of us were somewhat affected by the bells, but this was not a great problem at all and very easily fixed by earplugs.

A couple of minor thoughts: the Wi-fi could be a little unpredictable and it would have been nice to have a few more basics such as a few bin liners and some washing up liquid, for example, which would have negated the need to buy these items.

Nevertheless, a successful stay. Thank you.

Spacious, central and well appointed apartment on the beautiful Costa Brava coast

  • 5 of 5

This large apartment in the picturesque coastal town of Calella de Palafrugell provided the perfect introduction to our first visit to the Costa Brava: super-convenient; clean and comfortable; and spacious and stylish. The owner, Glenys, is friendly, helpful and always on hand if needed. We can't wait to return! Highly recommended!

Lovely apartment and beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned home after a week's stay. The apartment is lovely, light and spacious. We had 7 adults in our group and we all had a lovely room and plenty of space.

Great location, just a stones throw from the beach. Fantastic cliff walks, and lovely bars and restaurants.

Glenys couldn't have been more helpful, meeting us on our first day and giving us lots of information on what was going on in the local area during our stay.

Very close to the local church and the bells. Glenys does supply earplugs though!! It hasn't put us off as we would love to return if we get the chance!
