Why Robert Evans chose Baix Emporda

My wife and I fell in love with the location, bought the plot of land and had Villa Vera built to our specifications. Taking into account that we have two children and liked to holiday with other family members and friends.

We want to have holidays in the sun in a private location, with our own private pool. Enjoying a quite location in natural surroundings, but being near to everything you need to enjoy a family holiday; beaches, restaurants, water parks, mountain biking, kids play areas etc.

What makes this villa unique

Private quite location in natural surroundings, with private pool. But being near to everything you need to enjoy a family holiday; beaches, restaurants, water parks, mountain biking, kids play areas etc.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Julie Bray

As Villa Vera’s first guests, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your beautiful villa.

It was light and spacious, the location was quiet and private (but the villa was very secure).

We would definitely recommend it to our friends and relations and we were sorry we could not stay longer. I’m sure we will be back Many thanks! Julie

You usually expect photos to give an exaggerated view of things. In this case the reality was even better than the photos.

Is there anything you think is missing or would make your stay better at the villa?

No. you’ve really thought of everything. Even toys/videos for the kids, local maps etc. very impressed.You should buy up a few villas around there and go into business renting them out !!

Cathy Wright Northampton The villa was everything that you described. If anything, it was better. Fully equipped beyond our expectations and we found the toys, videos, childrens books, crayons etc, a godsend.

Perfect....once again

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in 2007 and came back again in 2009 because, quite frankly, it's the best villa and location we have found for a family with children. The pool and garden area are first class and you are only minutes from the beach by car.

The accommodation is superbly clean and first rate.

Overall a wondeful holiday (the fantastic weather in June also helped).

Many thanks.

Five Star Stay

  • 5 of 5

The booking process was easy and the information pack forwarded before our arrival gave good clear directions to the property along with general information for the villa, local facilities and places to visit. The property was as described being well equipped and maintained. Spectacular views from the lounge, patio and pool. Good location for visiting towns and within easy reach of the sea. Because of the option to use the pedestrian access from the road this made it suitable for people with restricted mobility to access the villa. We have stayed at this property twice now and have booked to return later in the year.

Modern house and a wonderful garden

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect location for 1-2 families with children. The garden is wonderful - big, green with some trees (shadow on hot days). There are barely any neighbours, so they can be as noisy as the parents can stand.

It takes only 10-15 minutes to go to the seaside (car is essential) but if you prefer you can spend the whole day at the pool.

There is also plenty of sightseeng within 1 hour driving.

We had a very good time there!

family holiday at villa vera

  • 4 of 5

Spacious clean accommodation. Everything you could wish for and more provided. Quiet area but local town, shops, eateries and beach easily accessible by car. Wished we'd had pool heating in Aug & flies a problem by the poolside as well as steep incline which one less able guest found difficulty with. Overall a good holiday retreat for families,couples or groups.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Villa exceeded expectations and was very comfortable. We made great use of the pool and having it heated made it most enjoyable. The location was ideal, very private without being isolated and very convenient for the town. We had several long and lazy lunches on the verandah which were most enjoyable. Would have no hesitation in recommending Villa Vera and have already done so since our return.

Regards

Catherine
