Everything you would want from a villa

  • 5 of 5

This is now the third time we have stayed at Villa Ginesta, and as with the previous two times we were not disappointed.

It has everything a large group would need. Proper beds, as apposed to camp beds or sofa beds and enough showers and toilets to cope with the evening rush.

The description with the villa is accurate. It is only 10 minutes walk from the Riells beach, restaurants and shops, with a bakers/coffee/bar 2 minutes round the corner for the morning breakfast run.

I would definitely recommend this villa and would like to thank Steve from Enterprise Properties for making it a great stay.

Absolutely Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

This villa accommodated myself, my husband, both our sons, their partners and their children.

The description on this site was 99% accurate. To our sons' delight the villa now has wifi and internet tv which meant our granddaughters could relax indoors out of the heat during an afternoon.

The villa was very well maintained and like a tardis inside. The downstairs accommodation double bedroom with ensuite, plus large room with 3 single beds, plus family bathroom with washing machine, plus additional playroom and tv room. Motion activated lighting in the downstairs hall was invaluable for children when they had to access the bathroom during the night.

Plenty of high quality bath sheets, hand towels and beach towels were provided.

Lots of pool toys and beach accessories stored underneath the side of the house.

The fig tree gave shade throughout the day and we were fortunate enough to be there when the fruit was ripening so ate fresh figs daily.

The house and garden are extremely well maintained. The pool man came 3 times per week to look after both the pool and the garden.

The villa was about a 10 minute walk to Riells beach where there was plenty of entertainment for all the family. Safe bathing, gently sloping and great sand for sand castles. Peddalos etc available for hire.

Plenty of good restaurants the length of Riells beach as well as the road behind, most offering set price menus including wine or water.

There is a funfair at night on the beach front as well as a nightly market.

Local shops for bread/fruit etc reasonable but 5 minutes drive and you have a choice of Aldi, Carrefour. Lidl and Mercadona supermarkets.

A land train runs frequently from Cala Montgo to the Empurada beaches costing 2 euros a trip. A good way to see what is available along the coast and what beaches are available.

The old town of L'Escala is well worth exploring and you will find lots of little bars, cafes and restaurants. We frequented El Petite Cafe several times, just down from the church. Fabulous meal and staff very attentive and enthusiastic.

There is a Sunday market which runs all along the prom, excellent value.

Would definitely recommend this property to family, friends and anyone else that will listen.

The property managers and their staff were friendly and full of information.

Villa Ginesta

  • 5 of 5

The Villa Ginesta was extremely comfortable with everything you could think of needing, being provided for, a real home from home. The added bonus of central heating made the villa very warm and cosy, making it ideal for an out of season holiday. The little bakery just down the road had great bread for a breakfast treat too, and very friendly staff. It was a good quiet location for exploring the L'Escala area. The Villa was well maintained, and very clean.

Steve, who was looking after the property, was very friendly and helpful, and all the information regarding restaurants etc. which was sent to us before our arrival was really very useful.

I would not hesitate in recommending staying in this villa.
