We know you have lots of villas to choose from, so our first five bullet points describe what makes our villa different - hopefully you'll like them, and read on....
---FIRSTLY, none of the terraces, gardens, barbeque, swimming pool, or poolside areas, are overlooked, nor do they overlook any other properties.
---SECONDLY, there are no other properties in front of the villa, nor to the right, nor to the left, of the villa. There are two properties to the rear, but they don't affect our privacy at all.
---THIRDLY, there is a short, flat walk into the village (please note that a short section of the road has no footpath).
---FOURTHLY, the garden is flat, extensive and very accessible.
---And FINALLY, there are uninterrupted views of an unblemished wooded hillside across the valley opposite the villa.
Do have a quick look through the 43 wonderful reviews provided by our previous guests, at the bottom of this page. We are very proud to have received so many positive recommendations from so many people - and we hope you will find their views and comments helpful and reassuring.
CASA ORIOL is an individually designed luxury villa, carefully furnished, and fully equipped, to ensure that it will provide all our guests, across all age groups, with a wonderful and memorable holiday. It is situated within a small and exclusive residential area, within walking distance of the medieval village of Calonge, with its restaurants, cafes, bakers, and supermarket - all set within the beautiful ‘Les Gavarres’ mountains, with the Mediterranean sea and many magnificent sandy beaches within 10 minutes easy drive. The villa is gated and secure, with ample parking space for two large cars.
THE GARDENS are extensive, mature and flat, fully landscaped with pathways and low level stone walling throughout, and planted with trees, palms, shrubs, herbs and bushes – including 80m² of grassy lawn, as well as a large hard surface area for boules, badminton and other games. There is also a spacious shady pergola with a hammock, and its own coffee table & chairs, providing yet more alternative ‘al fresco’ relaxation space. Another feature of the garden is the large wooden summerhouse, used mainly for storage, and here you will find the two bicycles, pool toys and inflatables, the boules, games, beach equipment, and extra chairs etc.,
THE OUTDOOR DINING TERRACE, with its own large dining table and chairs for six people, overlooks the swimming pool, has uninterrupted views to the wooded hillside across the valley, and is only a few steps away from the stone barbeque. Two sets of double patio doors open directly out onto the external terraces, gardens, and pool area - and, when left open, merge the interior of the villa with the exterior, to create one overall living space.
ALL THREE BEDROOMS have excellent remote-control ceiling fans to keep you cool at bedtime, and each bedroom window is fitted with retractable insect blinds so that the windows can be left open for extra cooling, if required. There are also two large portable upright fans to provide a cooling breeze through the rest of the villa, if the going gets a bit hot.
The SWIMMING POOL is south facing and gets the sun all day. The pool is 8 metres by 4 metres, is 2 metres deep at the deep end, and 1 metre deep at the shallow end, with roman steps down into the pool at one side of the shallow end. It is surrounded by extensive poolside space for six cushioned sun loungers, two high-back chairs, side tables, and two large sun umbrellas, together with large beach towels for your extra comfort. There is also a hot/cold poolside shower, and the pool will be checked, cleaned, and maintained for you, at least twice a week.
