Overview

About the property

3 luxury bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sea and mountain views, comfortably sleeps 6

Enjoying an elevated south-facing position, Villa Las Mimosas a spacious and beautifully appointed property boasting exceedingly impressive views across the wooded hillsides to the sea at Palamós Bay, which is just a short drive away, and conveniently is situated a short stroll from the medieval village of Calonge and its supermarkets, shops and restaurants. Recently built to very high standards with free WiFi and satellite television, this very comfortable home has been decorated and furnished with pride and excellent taste by caring owners. The Villa enjoys full air conditioning throughout. The interior is bright and airy with quality, modern fitments and a most welcoming colour scheme of russet and gold. Spectacular views can be enjoyed from the terraces and most rooms, in particular from the dining room where panoramic windows showcase the vista to notable effect. Outside, terraced gardens spread over several levels linked by steps and pathways meandering between the colourful shrubbery down to the private 10m x 5m heated salt water HEATED swimming pool on the lower level.

Villa Las Mimosas is set in its own private gardens of approximately 1/2 acre at the top of a prestigious development of individually designed detached villas. It is located 10 minutes walking distance from the historical village of Calonge with its weekly market, restaurants and bars, small supermarkets and shops. Villa Las Mimosas is equipped to the highest standards and is furnished in a luxurious and modern style with open plan living areas, two spacious bathrooms, three luxurious bedrooms and cool terracotta tile floors throughout. It has full central heating and double glazing and fans in every room and so is suitable for all year round occupancy in comfort. The main rooms open on to terraces that overlook the pool, the gardens and the stunning vista of the sea and mountains. Villa Las Mimosas provides the perfect setting for a relaxing and enjoyable stay.

The area provides a wealth of things to see and do; both by car, public transport and on foot. Local towns and villages are all full of character and interest. Nearby Calonge, Palamos and Platja D’Aro are well worth a walk. The fishing town of Palamos is where many local fishermen deliver their catch. It provides an array of stunning restaurants that serve mouthwatering fresh sea food as their speciality. Slightly further a field are towns such as Palafrugell, Begur, Pals, La Bisbal and St Feliu. There are many coves and bays that can be reached on foot and in some cases by car that offer spectacular views and scenery. For a day out Figueres (home of Salvador Dali) and Vic are worth visiting, not to mention Girona itself and of course Barcelona. Remember to allow time for visiting before everything closes for lunch/siesta at 1pm. (Normally re-opens at 4pm but can vary). The local town of Palamos is where you can get buses to many of these places if you don't want to drive.

If you are looking for a high quality villa, this is the place to stay... "

Amazing location and views

  • 5 of 5

We have recently stayed at Villa Los Mimosa in Calonge. The area is quiet and safe. The neighbours are very friendly and gave us some great tips for Spain in general. The booking process was very easy and Mark was quick to respond to any queries. We met with Joan on arrival and were shown the villa and were impressed with the layout, bedrooms upstairs living and dining downstairs. Like all the reviews the pictures don't do justice to the property or the views all the way to St. Antoni beach. The local restaurant La Jovita is a short stroll down the hill. St Antoni beach is approximately 4kms away with ample parking close to the beach. We would definetly love to come back to this villa and region as it different to other areas of the Costa Brava not as built up or over run by tourists. Access from Barcelona is easy 1&1/2 hrs by car.

The villa was lovely and had everything we needed to enjoy a relaxing holiday. Lovely en-suite bathrooms in both master bedrooms. The garden and pool area were fantastic and well maintained. We had a wonderful time and highly recommend the villa.

Wonderful villa in a lovely area

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic villa. Equipped with everything we could possibly need, and beautifully maintained, we had a great holiday. The grounds are lovely, as are the views. There was plenty of space around the pool to relax and the surrounding towns are worth visiting.

Mark and his wife were very friendly and helpful prior to our visit. We have stayed in several villas and would rank this as the best! Thank you.

Very well presented villa

  • 5 of 5

We recently had an extremely relaxing stay at Villa Las Mimosas.

On arrival the villa had been meticulously prepared. Spotlessly clean and very well appointed. The grounds are very well maintained and being on a hill there are super views overt he surrounding area. Calonge is quiet, but well positioned to explore the authentic villages of this part of Spain.

The villa lacks nothing for a great family holiday. Highly recommended.

Villa Las Mimosas is an exclusive, newly built, Catalan style villa with private swimming pool. It is situated on an elevated site with uninterrupted and panoramic views of the sea and the Bay of Palamos and is 10 minutes walk from the medieval village of Calonge with its monastery, castle and markets and the surrounding tree covered hills of the Gavarres National Park. The area offers a diverse range of easily accessible attractions and activities. From tranquil mountain walks and farmhouse restaurants amidst breathtaking scenery, the varied aspects associated with Catalonia including Dali, Gaudi, the museums and galleries at Barcelona and Girona, numerous ancient villages, castles and the Roman and Greek ruins at Empuries to an array of wonderful beaches, water sports, shopping and nightlife along the Costa. Walkers and mountain bikers will delight in the many and varied opportunities to explore and golfers will find a variety of excellent golf courses (7 within 45 minutes drive).

Other Activities: bird watching

Golf: There are a variety of excellent courses nearby. Within 45 minutes drive of the Villa there are seven 18 hole courses. Two of these (Pals and Emporda) hosted the 2003 European qualifying school and last year an LPGA event. They vary from links to woodland and are all reasonably priced and in excellent condition. The nearest (Mas Nou) has excellent practise facilities. The mild weather makes year round golf a pleasure. Handicap certificates are generally required. For more details and booking information, ask for website address.
