About Philip and Joanne Ghinn

We moved to Spain to enjoy a 'better life'. We spent several months deciding where to settle and decided this area was the best place due to the unspoilt beauty of the area. We enjoy living in our villa in the Winter and move out in the Summer.

Philip and Joanne Ghinn purchased this villa in 2005

Why Philip and Joanne Ghinn chose Roses

We wanted to find a unique property. For us the location is the most important thing. We wanted to find the perfect combination of beautiful views and total privacy. It took us several months of searching, but eventually we found it! We renovated the property throughout. We never tire of the views and when we move back after the Summer we appreciate the beauty all over again! To see the Mediterranean in front and the sun set behind the Pyrenees to the side with nothing to obscure the view is amazing.

What makes this villa unique

Total privacy, fantastic views and peace and quiet. It is very unusual to find a villa where it is not overlooked by any other houses with such amazing views. The villa is directly located next to the countryside.

Lovely home with beautiful views.

  • 5 of 5

The view of the sunset over the infinity pool is quite amazing, we can't get enough of it. We took more than 100 photos of just the sunset alone! :) Views of the mountains and the Mediterranean are beautiful as well. The location is perfect, very private and peaceful and close to many medieval towns which are one of the coolest places to visit. Thank you Phillip and Joanne for sharing your lovely home with us!!! :)

Wunderschönes Haus

  • 5 of 5

Ich kann dieses Haus sehr empfehlen . Wir sind jetzt das 3. Mal hier und fühlen uns sehr wohl . Es ist alles ausreichend vorhanden und es fehlt wirklich an nichts . Hervorheben muss man auch das die Location bestens für uns als Hundehalter geeignet ist . Man ist sofort im Park Natural wo die Hunde genügend Auslauf haben und das ohne Leine . Joanne und Philip sind überaus nett und immer Hilfsbereit . Deshalb haben wir auch schon wieder für das nächste Jahr gebucht .

Toller Urlaub, Villa amazing

  • 5 of 5

Hallo Philip und Joanne,

zuerst einmal vielen herzlichen Dank für das Überlassen eurer wunderschönen Villa und den netten Empfang nach einer fast 12-stündigen Autofahrt.

Es war alles wie beschrieben und auf den Fotos abgebildet..... einfach perfekt.

Völlig angenehm überrascht waren wir auch über die luxuriöse Küchenausstattung, sogar 2 Kühlschränke, ein Gefrierschrank und sämtliche Gewürze gehörten zur Grundausstattung.

Darüber hinaus verfügte jedes der 4 Schlafzimmer über ein eigenes Bad.

Erwähnenswert ist auch, daß der Pool regelmäßig gesäubert wurde.

Der wundervolle Blick auf die Bucht von Roses ist nicht mehr zu toppen und

in den Abendstunden beim Grillen auf der Terrasse einfach traumhaft.

Definitiv muß man mit dem Auto anreisen, da die Villa in einer Wohngegend ziemlich oberhalb des Berges der Siedlung Mas Fumats liegt.

Ein nahegelegenes Grillrestaurant: Balkan-Grill ist übrigens zu empfehlen.....Roses ist nicht weit, aber zu fuß schlecht zu erreichen....es gibt keine Bürgersteige auf reichlich befahrenen Hauptverkehrsstraßen....

Ein Muß ist das nahegelegene Fischerörtchen Cadaqués!!!....

Ich kann die Villa jederzeit und guten Gewissens weiterempfehlen!!!

Wir kommen bestimmt wieder!!!!

Alles Liebe und viele Grüße aus dem Saarland

Amazing family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the stay as did our teenage kids (17 and 21). There is a special Mediterranean holiday atmosphere in this villa. The location is indeed spectacular and views from pool and terrace continued to amaze us. Would recommend anyone to rent this villa 1 or 2 families.

Fantastic Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Mirador for a week in early April. For us, the location was perfect. Amazing views, private and quiet.

Literally right beside Cap de Creus park, it was ideal for us walking our dogs.

The house itself is very comfortable and decorated stylishly with plenty of space and all amenities you'd need. The pool area is great with good furniture and a big BBQ to use as you like.

The house is in Mas Fumats, a very small urbanisation 5 mins from Roses with a great little restaurant (Paskos). Lots to do and see in the area.

Can highly recommend. So much so, we're going back in a few months time.

Located in an elevated position in Mas Fumats, standing on a 2000 square metre plot which forms part of an old olive grove, the villa and pool are in a totally peaceful and private location, overlooking the Bay of Roses. Mas Fumats is located on a sunny South-facing hillside in the foothills of the Pyrenees, amongst olive groves with National Park all around. It is an ideal location to escape the crowds, but to be only 5 minutes drive to the fishing port of Roses and the nearest beaches, restaurants and supermarkets.

Roses town has all the facilities you would expect of a modern resort with plenty of bars, restaurants and nightclubs. The vibe is very family-oriented and friendly. The beach is sandy and safe for children, and at one end of the town is the busy fishing port where you can buy fish and seafood just off the boats.

The Bay of Roses is a beautiful bay of sandy beaches stretching from L'Escala to Roses. The beaches vary from sheltered family stretches, with lifeguards, sunbeds and all facilities, to wild natural areas where the windsurfers and kite-surfers come to play.

The Cap De Creus with its stunning rocky coves and sandy beaches is approximately 15 minutes drive through breathtaking scenery. Take a drive to the lighthouse at the most Easterly point in Spain where it really does feel like “the end of the world”.

You can visit the popular seaside town of Cadaques, where you can see the former home of Salvador Dali which is now a museum. Cadaques features on thousands of Costa Brava postcards and the town is full of artist's shops and good restaurants.

To the North of Roses you will find an unspoilt headland with spectacular scenery and small coves, including Cala Montjoi where you will see El Bulli, the world famous restaurant.

There is a very large protected area of natural wetlands within a few minute's drive. The 'Aiguamolls de l'Alt Emporda' are an important habitat for many species of birds and very popular with birdwatchers.

Figueres, about 20 minutes by car, is a traditional town where you will find the main Salvador Dali museum. Other historic towns and villages are all around. The small city of Girona is about 40 minutes by car.

Aqua Brava water park is about 5 minutes drive and is great fun for all the family.

Empuriabrava is approximately 15 minutes away. Here you can hire a boat to explore the canals, or try sky diving either from a plane or in the new vertical indoor wind tunnel.

If you are looking for restaurants you are spoiled for choice in this area. The world number 1, El Celler de Can Roca, is in Girona but you need to book early! Closer to Roses there are any number of traditional restaurants in the local villages or along the sea front serving fish caught that morning and fresh local ingredients. In the villa you will find our recommendations for the best restaurants to suit all budgets.

Golf: The nearest course is at Perelada (18 holes, par 71, 5990m) which is 10 miles or 20 mins drive. Other major courses include: Torremirona, 20 miles or 40 mins. Playa de Pals, PGA Golf de Catalunya, Emporda, all within 1 hour approx.

Ski: Usually possible from December to March. Several resorts to choose from in Spain or France within about 2 hours drive, making it a reasonable day trip. Spain: La Molina, Masella, Nuria, Vallter 2000. France: Font Romeu, Pyrenees 2000, Les Angles. Andorra is about 4 hours drive

Other Activities: Sky diving, Aqua Brava water park, go-karts, horseriding, all water sports, cycling, tennis etc.

Getting there: Girona Airport (Ryanair) 45mins. Perpignan Airport - France (Ryanair) 1 hour. Barcelona (All major airlines) 2 hours.

TGV: the fast train is now direct from Paris to Figueres station.

Roses is just 30 minutes' drive from the French border. Driving from Calais for example takes about 12 hours (750 miles).
