A serene stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week at The Colonial. The place has a delightful ambience and we really did feel lucky that we were staying somewhere so special. The African decorative theme is charming and the sea view with breakfast on the terrace was lovely. We enjoyed the local area with its restaurants, bars and beaches and hope to be back. Gary, the host, made us very welcome.

Perfect Escape - Great Place to Unwind

  • 5 of 5

We've just had the most wonderful getaway @The Colonial nr l'amettla de mar.

A perfect place to totally get away from it all (but still be able to get on the Internet!)

Halfway up a hillside, surrounded by olive groves it's a real country escape.

A wonderful pool, totally private, flanked on one side by a wall of bougainvillea and on the other with views down to l'amettla and the sea. There are also several bays/coves a short drive away perfect for swimming. We used the (fantastic) train service for a day out in Barcelona to break up the week but were mostly happy to do a little shopping in the village each day, then lounge by the pool or on one of several terraces. There are many great traditional spanish restaurants in the village (great paella!) but you can also get a pizza too. We made good use of the well equipped kitchen and the whole property is thoughtfully furnished & decorated, comfortable & clean. Everything you can think of seemed to be provided. The owner Gary, is a very pleasant guy and couldn't have been more helpful. Definitely recommended!

Could have been amazing!!

  • 3 of 5

We organised a big family holiday with three generations getting together to celebrate a big 70th birthday, with people travelling from Ireland, the UK, America and France to join in this family occasion. We were really impressed with how the viila was presented on this site and others and had great expectations. The villa was beautiful but was let down on a few issues which would have been easily resolved with little effort or cost. There were a few wayward nails in the yurts and loose planks which were quite hazardous with five young children in our group. The mosquito net/door was not properly attached in one or more rooms...in fact one room had no net and this room was located next to an outdoor water feature surrounded by hundreds of mosquitos/wasps! On our day of arrival early in the afternoon after a long, hot day of travelling we were told that pool could not be used as it was being cleaned...this lead to some very disappointed children and alot of very hot and agitated adults. On at least another two days during our stay we were asked not to use the pool as again it needed to be cleaned...the temperatures in Aug were 35 degrees plus so no pool was a big issue in a house on a hill with no air condition and few working fans!! There were a few cats that came with the property that clients are expected to feed...not a major issue were it not for the fact that we had young crawling children. All this being said i would have to say Gary did all he could to help us and came to our aid whenever needed. We arrived to a lovely and unexpected welcome package (food/wine) Having organised other group holidays and knowing the stresses of extended families with children of varying ages getting together i feel that alot of hassle and unnecessary agro was caused during our family holiday due to this property not being mainatained to the expected level. I hope the review is taken in the spirit it is meant....we had a fabulous holiday and have memories for life but some small, unnecessary issues have left a bitter taste in my mouth as the chief organiser. A unique property in an idyllic location with massive potential!

Fab Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Gary for making us so welcome to the Colonial.

We have just returned from a weeks holiday with three generations of family. The Colonial Villa is very spacious, comfortable and homely. On arrival Gary greeted us with a well stocked fridge, some home made soup, pizzas, wine and beer which was wonderful after a long tiring day travelling with the kids and grandparents from London. The house was spotless, really well equipped and the yurts are amazing.

We hope to return for another fabulous week.
