About Jane Alison Smith

I am married and have three adult children. Before my children left home, I worked as a secondary school teacher. Now I accompany my husband, Martyn, who works for BP overseas. Currently we live in Baku, Azerbaijan. When we are at home we live in Winchester where many of our extended family also live.

Jane Alison Smith purchased this villa in 2005

Why Jane Alison Smith chose Baix Emporda

The villa is ideal for family holidays, especially two-family holidays. The garden is a beautiful place to be, fully enclosed and private and beniffiting from all day sunshine. The private pool, which can also be heated, makes the outdoor experience even more luxurious.

What makes this villa unique

Both my husband and myself love this part of Spain. It is culturally rich but also a wonderful place to relax and enjoy outdoor life.

Excellent villa most enjoyable stay

  • 4 of 5

Only criticism would be lack of shade in the heat of the day - an extra parasol would have been very welcome !

Beautiful villa in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

We all had a wonderful stay at La Gallega. Beautiful well equipped villa in a fantastic location close to so many places to visit. This is such a lovely part of Spain. The children didn't ever want to leave the villa and were more than happy to spend every day in the heated pool. Thoroughly recommended.

A Perfect Holiday

  • 5 of 5

The most memorable weeks of 2013 were those we spent in Calonge. We have been returning to Villa La Gallega for a number of years now and are always struck by the peaceful, welcoming atmosphere of this beautiful villa- even our dog is excited when we reach La Gallega.

On our arrival this time we were eager to test the pool which is now heated. Extensive renovation has provided a stunning swimming pool and patio area, surrounded by a lovely garden.Although our holiday was in late September into early October we were able to swim every day; in fact it was difficult to persuade anybody to get out of the pool!

We would like to thank the owners for enabling us to have such an enjoyable holiday. If you are looking for a perfect holiday we heartily recommend La Gallega. Just don't book the weeks we want to go!

Yve & John

Gute Zeiten - schlechte Zeiten

  • 4 of 5

Auf den ersten Blick ist alles perfekt. Der Garten und Pool sind gepflegt und schön angelegt. Das Haus ist sauber und zweckmäßig eingerichtet. Einige Dinge, wie zum Beispiel die Sitzgruppe auf der Terasse müsste erneuert werden, da diese doch schon sehr verwohnt ist. Einige Liegen am Pool sind schon arg durchgelegen. Die Zimmer im Haus sind sehr unterschiedlich. Im oberen Geschoss ist das Zimmer sehr schön eingerichtet und es gibt ein separates Bad. Im unteren Schlafzimmer ist das Bad und WC direkt im Zimmer, was nicht wirklich immer angenehm ist. En Suite heisst für uns neben und nicht direkt im Schlafzimmer. Die zwei anderen Zimmer von denen es keine Bilder gibt, sind ein bisschen lieblos eingerichtet. Bett, Schrank, keinen Nachttisch, keine Lampe. In der Küche ist alles vorhanden bis auf ein Backblech im Ofen. An der Grillecke fehlt definitiv ein Sonnenschirm, da Grillen in der Sonne nicht wirklich Spaß macht und somit die Sitzecke im Hochsommer nicht wirklich nutzbar ist. Des Weiteren gibt es auch am Pool nur einen Sonnenschirm.

Alles im allen, ist das Haus und Garten aber okay und es sind Kleinigkeiten, die verbesserungswürdig sind, um einen schönen Urlaub zu verbringen.......doch leider wurde bei uns am dritten Tag eingebrochen.

Achtung !!!

Nicht alle Fenster im Haus haben Gitter und es gibt auch keinen Safe, somit mussten wir mit einigen Verlusten klarkommen. Die Urlaubsstimmung war dahin und die Kinder hatten permanent Angst. Der Verwalter war sofort zur Stelle und hat Kontakt mit der Polizei aufgenommen und die Tür repariert. Er war sehr hilfsbereit und kann perfekt englisch, was man von der Polizei nicht behaupten kann. Von unserer Vermieterin haben wir bis heute nichts mehr gehört. Schade.......eine kurze Nachfrage, wie es uns geht wäre nett gewesen.

The nearest village to La Gallega is Calonge, about 3 km away. The medieval village offers shops, restaurants, bars and a weekly market. The nearest beaches are at the family friendly resort of Sant Antoni de Calonge which has beautiful beaches and a long promenade with fish restaurants and bars. The lively fishing port of Palamos adjoins Sant Antoni to the north. If more private and rugged beaches are your style, there are many secluded beaches along the coastline north of Palamos. For example, the beaches around Pallafrugell, 20 minutes drive away. Heading inland from the villa is the beautiful nature reserve of Les Gavarres, suitable for walking or mountain biking. There are local walking trails which can be started from the villa itself. The medieval mountain-top village of Romanya de la Selva is a short drive up into the hills and offers exquisite dining with stunning views over the surrounding countryside. Cosmopolitan Barcelona is an hour away, offering culture, shopping, dining.
