Situated at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, the beautiful villa La Gallega enjoys an elevated position on the wooded slopes of Cabaynes. The garden is peaceful, private and a lovely area in which to unwind by the pool. The private heated, pool (9m by 4m) is surrounded by extensive terracing and sun loungers are provided. For convenience there is an outside WC and hot/cold shower. For summer dining there is a purpose built barbecue area. There is also a convenient and comfortable outside dining area adjoining the villa, near to the kitchen and living areas. The villa has 4 bedrooms, 2 with ensuite facilities and sleeps a maximum of 8 people. La Gallega is a 3 minute drive from the small, medieval town of Calonge, where restaurants and shops can be found. The villa is also close to the fishing town of Palamos and St. Antoni de Calonge which both offer a wide range of amenities and attractions. The villa offers a peaceful retreat with access to a range of activities to suit all holidaymakers. From summer 2013 internet access is available.
I am married and have three adult children. Before my children left home, I worked as a secondary school teacher. Now I accompany my husband, Martyn, who works for BP overseas. When we are at home we live in Winchester where many of our extended family also live.
Mrs Jane Smith purchased this villa in 2005
Having just returned from a stay at La Gallega this Easter I would heartily recommend this villa. The villa was spotlessly clean and well equipped. All admin was dealt with quickly and efficiently. We went as a group of 5 adults and the space in the villa was perfect for us although the kitchen was a little crampt for more than one chef at a time. The log fire was a boon at Easter in the evenings and so was the barbeque area. The pool was lovely although temperatures at Easter were a little low to use it frequently. Views are excellent set in a modern well maintained housing area but not onorously overlooked at all. We have already recommended the villa to a friend.
Four of us have just spent a most enjoyable Autumn holiday in La Gallega. although we took this holiday in late October, the weather was exceptionally good with warm and sunny days.
The villa has a heated pool which even at this time of year allowed us to swim on most days and enjoy a barbecue at lunchtime.
This was not our first holiday here because La Gallega offers very comfortable accommodation in a lovely location. We all enjoy walking and its a perfect base from which to go on some spectacular hikes.
Whilst here we also managed some retail therapy in nearby Plaja D'Aro which has good clothes shops and tempting places to dine at.
We said goodbye to La Gallega with some sadness and returned to the cold UK, but we are all looking forward to returning in 2017
La Gallega is situated in the beautiful countryside near Calonge, and it is only 10 minutes from a supermarket or a beach. The villa is always welcoming providing spacious and comfortable accommodation. It is surrounded by a lovely garden in which there is a heated pool and a dedicated barbecue area.
Although on this last holiday we were just two couples. On previous holidays here we have had children and our dog with us and all enjoyed themselves immensely - whether in the pool, on the beach or just walking in the countryside.
We always enjoy shopping in the market at Palamos, where the abundance of fresh fish and local produce is a delight. However we usually spend an evening in Plaja D'Aro checking out the boutiques and clothes shops there, followed by a glass of wine in one of the many pavement cafes. Eating out is easy and inexpensive with plenty of bars and cafes in nearby Calonge St Antoni, or maybe further afield in Llfranc, which is a sophisticated little harbour.
We are well travelled having had many holidays in many places in the world - Japan - West Indies - America - Egypt.........as well as most countries in Europe. But the holiday we have just spent in Calonge has to be one of the most enjoyable holidays we have ever had. We would like to thank the owners of La Gallega for making their villa so hospitable and providing us with a wonderful holiday location!
With a stunning view across Calonge valley to the sea at Sant Antoni, La Gallega villa offers first class accommodation with that certain 'Je ne sais quoi', that you hope for in a holiday retreat, yet rarely find. The area reminds us of the best of southern France thirty years ago, but without the quaint living conditions. The villa is equipped to the highest standards and you can choose from a relaxing poolside day,or exploring the best of Spanish Cost Brava. There are hidden bays, like Llafranc and Calella with local restaurants overlooking perfect sandy beaches. These contrast with the bustle of Palamos a local fishing port and the medieval experience of fortified towns like Pals near Cap de Begur. Calonge for us is the best of Spain and the Villa La Gallega a most wonderful place to stay. We certainly hope to come back soon.
We Have just returned from yet another wonderful holiday in Calonge where we stayed once again in villa La Gallega. The villa is beautifully situated against the hills with the sea just 10 minutes away. A lovely garden surrounds the villa, in which there is a large pool and barbeque.
The villa itself is well equiped and comfortable with plenty of space. Our party of seven ranged from an 82 year old to a two year old, and at no time did the villa feel cramped or overcrowded.
The local markets provide excellent fruit and vegetables and of course beautiful fish. There are also numerous restaurants where one can eat delicious food at reasonable prices.
There are delightful coastal walks nearby, safe beaches to bathe from and the little town at Pals is good for tourist shopping.
We would recommend La Gallega to return to year after year - as indeed we have been doing ourselves.
Just returned from a lovely week in this property. The villa has everything you could need and more, it was well maintained and well equipped. There were 5 adults and 2 children in our party and there was ample space. The layout works very well. The pool was a big hit with everyone. The family who joined us for a few days were very impressed and will be booking for next year I think!
We had very good communication from the owners from start to finish, everything went very smoothly.
Would definately recommend.
The nearest village to la Gallega is Calonge, about 3 km away. The medieval village offers shops, restaurants, bars and weekly market. The nearest beaches are at the family friendly resort of Sant Antoni de Calonge which has beautiful beaches and a long promenade with fish restaurants and bars. The lively fishing port of Palamos adjoins Sant Antoni to the north. If more private and rugged beaches are your style there are many secluded beaches along the coastline north of Palamos. For example the beaches around Pallafrugell, 20 minutes drive away. Heading inland from the villa is the beautiful nature reserve of Les Gavarres, suitable for walking or mountain biking. There are local walking trails which can be started from the villa itself. The medieval mountain top village of Romanya de la Selva is a short drive up into the hills and offers exquisite dining with stunning views over the surrounding countryside. Cosmopolitan Barcelona is an hour away, offering culture, shopping, dining.
