The spacious villa (400 sq m) sleeps 8 comfortably; it has four large airy bedrooms, each with its own private balcony, two single beds, built-in wardrobes, dressing table and en-suite bathroom. The bathrooms are all well equipped with a bath, shower, toilet, basin and bidet. There is also a guest bathroom with a shower on the ground floor.

The large lounge is traditionally furnished and has a large open fireplace. Glass doors open directly on to an open terrace with table and chairs, overlooking the garden, perfect for evening drinks.

Two steps lead up to the open-plan dining room. The verandah outside the dining room is covered and has a large circular table and chairs, ideally suited for eating out during the summer months.

The fully fitted kitchen is well equipped and outside there is a large charcoal BBQ. The washing machine is in the basement, together with a second fridge/freezer.

Sports Facilities: *Golf. Excellent facilities are all around. Details in the golf section.

* Tennis. There are 4 hard courts less than 100 yards from the villa, and another 3 beautifully maintained clay courts, 1 hard court and 1 'paddle' court down at the clubhouse at the entrance to the golf estate. You may play on these by booking and paying by the hour or you can buy a 1 or 2 week 'abono' which gives you unlimited use of the courts during that time.

* Water sports. San Pol, the beautiful sandy beach at S'Agaro, half way between Sant Feliu and Platja d'Aro, is the place for water sports. From the beach you can water-ski, windsurf, sail or pedalling. You can also windsurf, sail or pedalling from Platja d'Aro or Sant Feliu. Also at Platja d'Aro is the popular Aquadiver water amusement park

* Horse riding is in Santa Cristina

*Walking and cycling. This area is perfect for walking and cycling, both on and off road, and there are many routes for walkers and cyclists in the hills.

Around and about: The villa is ideally placed for exploring the Costa Brava - you can go in all directions and find plenty of interest, both scenically and culturally. Apart from the beautiful coastline, Barcelona and Girona, there are many other attractions like the Dali museums, Roman ruins etc. There are two towns on the coast very close by and any number of others easily accessible, all quite different in character.

Platja d'Aro is a large bustling tourist resort with all the restaurants, night life, designer boutiques etc. that you would expect. There are also beaches, an aqua sports centre and sailing.

Sant Feliu, about 3 km away, is an old harbour town with a local population. This is definitely the 'locals' town'. There is a daily market in the main square specialising in fruit, vegetables and fish, which is run by the locals for the locals. On Sunday, it becomes a large, colourful, bustling market selling everything from clothes, shoes, linens to toys, CDs and fake football shirts

Car: recommended

Santa Cristina d'Aro is close to the spectacular Costa Brava coastline, 4-5 km from the towns of Sant Feliu de Guixols and Platja d'Aro, 25 km from Girona and 100 km from Barcelona.

It is a little village with a pretty square; it has an excellent supermarket, local shops and bars and a few local restaurants.

It is an excellent area for golf - The villa overlooks one of the fairways on the Golf Costa Brava and there are many other excellent courses within a 30 to 45 minutes drive.

The pine covered hills around Santa Cristina, offering spectacular views from the summits, are excellent for walking and mountain biking, and start 400m from the villa. Road cyclists will find lots of routes around the neighbouring towns and countryside, and there are plenty of dedicated cycle tracks, many of which are ideal for family outings.

It is also ideally placed for exploring the Costa Brava - you can go  in all directions and find plenty of interest, both scenically and culturally.

Golf: The Costa Brava is an excellent area for golf, and Santa Cristina is an excellent base to explore its courses.

The villa is situated overlooking the 4th fairway of the Club de Golf Costa Brava, a beautiful 18 hole golf course surrounded by pines and cork oaks. The first tee is five minutes' walk away.

All the following 18 hole courses are within an hour's drive of Santa Cristina, and most within half-an-hour.

Club Golf D'Aro Mas-Nou

PGA Catalunya

Golf Girona

Club Golf de Pals

Emporda Golf Club

Peralada Golf


Serres de Pals

L'Angel de Lloret

In addition to the full length golf courses in the area there are very fine 9 and 18-hole pitch and putt par 3 courses, many of which are really proper golf courses in miniature. They are ideal for beginners and also for the more experienced golfer who can enjoy playing the beautiful holes and practising the short game. In the immediate vicinity there is a good 9-hole par-3 course at Mas Nou, on top of the hills outside Platja d'Aro, and a more conventional pitch and putt course in the town. Other par-3 courses in the area are Franciac Golf (Caldes de Malavella), Fornells, Viladrau, Peralada and Gualta.
