Relaxing Family Get together
Perfect house for extended families. Plenty of space, large well stocked kitchen. Teenagers liked the table tennis. Wonderful beach and Restaurant Rosamar has a great terrace with lovely food
Good for extended families!
We had a fantastic extended family holiday recently. The house was spacious and well stocked with necessary equipment. Sadly the house was not quite as the pictures showed with peeling paint and generally in need of a bit of modernising. Without air conditioning it was quite hot, but the roof fans did make it a bit more tolerable. The surrounding area is beautiful and very peaceful with gorgeous beaches.
Thanks for your review. We maintain and upgrage the property each year. I can only think that the humidity in the Spring may have lifted some paint. I am glad you and your extended family enjoyed your holiday
Spacious and comfortable house in a beautiful setting
We stayed in Villa Rosamar in August 2018 and loved every minute of it. The house was really nicely appointed and extremely spacious and easily swallowed up our two families with still room to spare.
Lots of lovely balconies off the living space and bedrooms and a fabulous pool in the garden - bigger than most pools in villas. The table tennis was extremely popular with the children too.
From a practical perspective, the kitchen was extremely spacious and had all that we needed to feed 11. the washing machine was easy to use, plenty of airers to dry washed clothes and there were plenty of toilets and bathrooms for all.
As there was no air conditioning (would be a good addition for the bedrooms) we were quite reliant on the fans. There were not enough working fans when we arrived but when asked we were provided with extra brand new fans immediately which was extremely impressive and gratefully received.
There were a few lights without working lightbulbs so perhaps a little more checks needed on handover but otherwise it was really a wonderful house for a family holiday.
Rosamar itself is a wonderful oasis and would suit couples and families - more agile elderly. Car essential to get provisions and visit the local area although there is a little shop for necessaries, a lovely restaurant and beach bar all near the beach...the fabulous beach!
Highly recommend - we want to come back! :)
Thank you for your review. We are really pleased the villa worked for you and your family and that you had a great holiday. We are planning on putting a portable air-conditoner on the bedroom floor for next season and take your point about light bulbs.
Once again thanks for such a positive review.
misleading and disappointing
The property is tired and need of some TLC. In the garden was a broken fridge and table umbrella. The bedrooms were not set out as advertised. I broached this with Home and Away and the owner but did not even get the courtesy of a reply. The photos do not show that it is in a built up area of a large number of villas
We had an amazing time at Villa Rosamar!
The villa was a wonderful place to stay after three busy weeks touring other areas in Europe. We loved that the beach was an easy walk down the hill, and that the beach bar served everything from sandwiches to pizza to ice cream. There were days that we didn't even get in the car or leave. Day trips to Barcelona and Girona were well worth it, but we were happy to get back to our quiet cove in Rosamar. Speaking of the cove, I was in awe of the pathway out into the sea- the one I've seen pictures of on Pinterest. It was more beautiful than I imagined.
The only issue we had was the heat, that we couldn't control. It was quite warm when we were there. And even with the fans and instructions from the manager in how to best close up/cool off the house, it could get a bit uncomfortable. That's when the pool came in handy.
Above all it was an amazing place and we hope to return one day.
Mary, We think it is special too. Glad you had everything you needed for a relaxing holiday. We hope to see you again soon. Catriona
Great stay in Rosamar
We were a group of 4 couples with 5 children, who had a lovely one-week stay in Villa Rosamar in June 2016. We found the location to be quite appealing, with its beautiful hillside view and 10-15 minute walk from the beach, as well as good hiking and interesting medieval villages in the area. Rosamar itself is a quiet, very tiny town with a small store, a restaurant, and a beach bar, and we arrived on a Sunday evening with no groceries, so we really appreciated the food items that were provided with the house (bread, pasta, wine, etc.). In general the house was well-equipped with everything we needed, although there were some issues with internet, as the only internet available in the area runs through a sim card. The property manager came to help us sort out the internet, but we ended up having to make a trip to the provider to get it working, and we would have appreciated if the manager had handled this for us.
The house is spacious, sleeps up to 12 in beds and has additional baby cots. Four of the bedrooms are close together on the middle floor, sharing one bathroom, with one substantially larger on the bottom floor with another bathroom and separate sitting room. The pool was clean and nice, though fairly cool in late June -- that didn't stop the kids from spending plenty of time in it. We especially enjoyed the barbecue area and ample seating next to the pool. We'd definitely visit again!
Thanks very much for your kind words. Unfortunately because the area is hilly the internet reception is not the same as we are used to in cities. We are glad you enjoyed your holiday
Sant Feliu was one of the most important trading ports for corks for the wine industry in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and this is evidenced today in the many fine historic buildings. In the 1930's the area became fashionable as a holiday destination and Gaudi designed one of the fabulous art-deco villas that line the promenade at the nearby Sant Pol beach. There are numerous excellent restaurants and bars serving fresh fish and tapas. Only one hour north of Barcelona, Sant Feliu is the perfect base to explore the Costa Brava.
