My family enjoying the summing pool, which is great. I prefer the beach and the sea as it is just in front of the apartment.
Lovely apartment in a perfect location. It was small but there were 5 of us so it did feel a little cramped at times and there is only one bathroom. The shower head was not fixed on the wall when we arrived so we taped it up to use. There is a seperate WC though.
The apartment was very clean - we would recommend you take your own towels though as the ones provided were tatty (as another person already stated in their review). Also the bed linen was tired.
Other than that we had a great holiday - the owners are a pleasure to deal with and very helpful.
The restaurants, shops and bars are all within walking distance. The pool area and gardens are immaculate but did get very busy (high season). The pool attendant was extremely strict (no ball games, inflatables etc).
All in all a lovely relaxing two week holiday in a perfect location!
First things first, the house is clean and well equipped, its close to the beach and close to a good store for daily purchases of bread, milk, bear and so on.
In terms of what could have been better? We would have appreciated not having to bring our own sheets - apparently they can be rented from the owner though, so do ask. Wifi would have been nice, and some English speaking channels on the satellite for the odd rainy day.
Stayed in Blanes for 14 days in June 2010 - Listening to the waves 24/7 and waking up to the beautiful view from the MBR (and the LVR) is what this property is all about! Great wrap-around porch with a table+4 chairs and 1 sunlounger (none of it was white plastic). Very nice pool for children and adults alike.
Loved the fact that we didn't need a car for anything. Pre-booked airport pick-up through www.suntransfers.com and it worked perfectly.
Walked to town daily which my children (aged 10+) didn't mind at all, especially since the weather in June is not that hot and at night there are street sellers along the way (jewellery, hair braiding, knick-knacks). The shuttle boat stops 100 m from the property so you can take a day trip to other small towns and beaches.
Some broken dishes in the kitchen but I bought new ones after contacting the owner and she refunded me the money at departure.
I would have liked to have some nice big, bath towels. Now all towels seemed to be beach/pool towels and quite worn out. TV is very small and old style. The two other BR are small with single beds only.
The apartment is starting to show some wear and tear (paint on the walls, sofa, lamp shade, sheets, towels) but I am sure the owners will keep everything updated to be able to classify the property as luxurious!
The view and the pool couldn't be better! We would go back.
The Village of Blanes is one of the oldest and more typical ones of Costa Brava. Originally a fishermen Village it has the main fishing harbour of Costa Brava. Many shops, great restaurants, amazing colourful food market (mainly fish, fruit and vegetables) every day.
It has also a very long white sandy beach and many small romantic beaches reachable by TAXI BOAT (between 10 and 20 minutes). Water quality is consistently rated TOP by the European Environmental Comission.
