Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Baix Emporda - Casa Sant Roc

4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 8 + cot, pool can be heated, SPECIAL OFFER

Our holiday home sits in a 1000m2 level plot at the foot of the Gavarres hills. Comfortably furnished throughout and well equipped for self-catering, both in the kitchen and garden, where there is a broad covered terrace alongside the large in-built barbecue. There are shady areas under the trees in which to eat or simply relax. Especially suited for families with younger children the garden is enclosed and the private pool, which is visible both from the terraces outside and the living room within, has a separate children's paddling pool end. The house is great for families - the pool is in the sun from early morning to late evening - meaning it is one of the warmest pools we have ever come across. With the added benefit of a paddling pool end and roman steps into the the main pool.Suitable for golfers with excellent golf courses a short drive away. The property has electric radiators which makes it suitable for early or late bookings. The perfect retreat if you have had enough of the beautiful beaches, countryside and medieval towns. The villa is equipped with fans in the 4 bedrooms and mosquitto nets on bedroom windows. Table tennis, basket ball outside, MP3/ipod dock speaker, stereo system, satillite TV, DVD, WiFi.

Why Vicky Grandfield chose Baix Emporda

We booked a holiday ourselves in Casa Sant Roc on the recommendation of friends who had stayed at the villa themsevles. As luck would have it, the owners had put the property on sale that week. As the saying goes 'we loved it so much we bought it' as our family holiday home. We had fallen in love with Catalonia on a previous holiday and even today find new and charming places to visit, with every activity we can think of within reach.

We found Casa Sant Roc was ideally located to easily get around and enjoy the diversity that Catalonia has to offer - the mountains, beautiful countryside, the sea, quiet coves/fishing ports (Palamos), busy holiday centres - with shopping, activities, waterparks etc (Playa D’Aro), cultural trials (Dali and Medieval legacies), and splendid cities (Barcelona and Girona), whilst the house itself is in a peaceful location near the traditional Catalan town of Calonge nestling under the Gavarres hills.

What makes this villa unique

We fell in love with Casa Sant Roc as the house has a large, level,south facing garden (quite unusual in this part of the world). The house is great for families - pool in the sun from early morning to late evening - meaning it is one of the warmest pools we have ever come across. With the added benefit of a paddling pool end and roman steps into the the main pool. A lawn for kicking a ball about on or playing badminton. Shaded areas to sit and several outside eating areas. The house has a terrace for sitting on, built in BBQ and outside sink together with outside dining room.

Guestbook comments from the owner

'we had a great time there and were really impressed with the villa, I would definitely recommend it to friends and family.' Mr B, April 2008

The Villa was absolutely delightful, with a wonderful swimming pool and garden which were perfect for our two young children. The property was very well equipped with lots of nice personal touches which made it feel like our home for the fortnight. I would highly recommend this villa to other families especially those with young children' Mrs B, August 2008. The Villa is a wonderful place to have a holiday, it is very pretty and is well furnished,

The garden is very large and private , we very much enjoyed the pool and Bar-B-Q area. The surrounding area has many things to offer beautiful unspoilt beaches , very good shops and many places of interest all within a short distance. Mrs S, Sept 2008

Lovely villa for a peaceful family holiday

  • 5 of 5

The villa is well equipped with everything one could need for a family holiday. We had 5 adults and my 2 young grandchildren in our party and there was plenty of space for everyone. The pool, gardens and outside dining area were particularly appreciated, though the little ones also enjoyed having UK TV channels so that they could go inside in the midday heat. The villa is extremely convenient for getting around and there is a good supermarket just down the road with an excellent fresh fish counter for those who want to self cater, though there are several excellent resturants in the area - El Refugi in Romanya just 10 minutes drive along a country road is particularly recommended. I would recommend the villa to anyone who wants a relaxing stay in a lovely part of Spain.

Family friendly stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay at Casa Sant Roc with our young family (4 children ages 7 and under). Swimming pool really safe and lots of room in the garden for the boys to play football. Lots of outside eating at different tables depending on where the sun is.

Lots of beaches within 30 mins drive to explore that are also family friendly.

Villa comfortable and clean and room for everyone.

We had a great holiday!

A lovely village.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over the easter holidays 2016. The villa and grounds are lovely and well maintained. It was plenty big enough for 7 of us (mum, dad and 5 children). It's a nice peaceful neighbourhood (rarely heard the neighbours). We are currently having huge renovations to our house at home and was so grateful to be left in peace and quiet to get some much needed relaxation time (although owner was at hand for any concerns). We really enjoyed our time here and would definitely recommend 😊 Many thanks for having us.

Lovely family holiday villa

  • 4 of 5

Lovely gardens and large sunlight pool to relax beside. The villa was well equipped, comfortable and spotlessly clean. Lovely area to explore by car with a whole range of beaches very close by.

Everything went perfectly in the organisation with Vicky. Our contact point in Spain (Karen) was also very helpful in answering our questions. We liked our stay very much and we can only warmly recommend this location.

The medieval village of Calonge, 2km away, has all the amenities eg restaurants, weekly market. A restaurant in walking distance. Nearest beach is 5 minute drive away, which stretches from the fishing port of Palamos (where there are plenty of good fish restaurants) to the quiet family resort of Sant Antoni. Our personal favourite beach is La Fosca (a 10 minute drive) which is a small, natural bay with the added advantage of a gentle sloping beach into the sea and the beautiful natural cove of Castell with plenty of stunning costal walks. The pretty coves of Llafranc and Begur are a 20 minute drive away. Heading south you have a Water park at Platja d'Aro, a 15 minute drive away with slides and flumes. A bit further south is the Victorian town of Sant Feliu de Guixois which has a marina and family beach. Head inland and there are plenty of walks in the beautiful Gavarres National reserve. The hill-top hamlet of Romanya (just a few km away) has two restaurants with stunning views.

Other Activities: waterpark 10 minutes drive away, bowling

Golf: Within an hour drive from the Villa there are at least 9 courses. Club de Golf d'Aro at Platja d'Aro - 15 mins, Club de Golf Costa Brava at Sant Cristina - 20 mins, Golf de Pals - 20 mins, Golf Serres de Plas - 25 Mins, 36 holes at Emporda Golf Club - 30 mins, World class PGA Catalunya - 45 minutes, Golf Girona - 60 minutes, Torremirona & Peralada both 60 minutes.
