It was lovely -- very relaxing, we had everything we needed. The property is beautiful. A great vacation spot with family and friends!
Walking through the national park, winery next door, great kitchen, comfortable sitting areas, pool was lovely, ponds and fountains. It was an easy place for a large gathering, as people could mingle or sit quietly by themselves and read, as they wished. The staff were tremendously helpful.
It was terrific. Would have been nice to be able to go into the garden ourselves to pick vegetables, but that is such a minor point-- it was really fabulous.
Going on long walks, the winery next door, strolling around Sitjes, their restaurant, easy train ride to Barcelona.
Nearby Events or Locales:
St. Pere de Ribas or Sitjes, neither were within walking distance. You had to drive everywhere.
Tips or Restaurants:
Be sure to visit the winery next door for a tasting!
Some GPS worked but others couldn't locate the property. Directions were pretty good, but still easy to get lost. Some taxis got lost, others had no problem.
Check In Out:
They accommodated those of us arriving early by letting us hang out at the restaurant until the villa was ready--this made meeting up with everyone much easier, as flights arrived at different times.
