About the property

Refurbished villa located within a gated community with "private" cove

Well presented 4 bedroom (8 person) villa 300 metres from the sea with beautiful sea views, with refurbished (modern) bathrooms and kitchen.

The two double bedrooms have stunning sea views. The main bedroom has a king size bed, en-suite bathroom and balcony with view to the sea. The second double bedroom has a queen size bed.

The other two bedrooms (a twin bed and a bunk bed respectively) have views to the back of the house over pine forest.

The villa is set in a "country club" style community (Cala Nostra) which is built in the hills surrounding Aigua Xelida cove. It is a short 300 metre stroll to the cove through the community (no public roads) via a footpath and stairs through a pine forest.

There are spectacular cliff walks that lead from the community in both directions. The community is very well maintained and includes 3 tennis courts and 3 communal pools, one Olympic sized pool, one family pool and one wading pool for toddlers. There is also a well-stocked local community shop that is open during the high season.

The house is spacious (150 sq metres of indoor space), has ceiling fans in all bedrooms and two refurbished bathrooms upstairs (one family bathroom and one en-suite bathroom) and a toilet downstairs. and also has a patio to the front (with outside dining set), a large sun terrace to the front and a patio behind the house.

The house has lovely shade in summer due to two large pine trees

Other features include: a double garage, Weber gas BBQ, Dishwasher, Washing machine, dryer, refrigerator, freezer, Coffee machine etc. All beds and mattresses were new as of Dec 14.

A car is recommended to do large grocery shops and to explore the local region - this part of the Costa Brava boasts much natural beauty (the beach of Aigua Blava, for example, is a ten minute drive).

Tamariu beach (a blue flag beach) and town centre can be reached in 20 minutes by foot or 5 mins by car (it is 2 km by road).

The nearest large town is Palafrugell which is 6km away and Begur is also very close by.

About The Owner

My wife and I discovered Tamariu "by accident" when we were camper-vanning through Spain in our twenties. We returned many years later with our three kids in tow and found it was still the perfect holiday destination. We live in London but spend as much time in Tamariu as we can!

The Owner purchased this villa in 2014

Why The Owner chose Palafrugell

We spent a number of years holidaying in the area before deciding to buy this property which we felt was the perfect combination of being within walking distance of Tamariu with it's fantastic selection of restaurants etc. and stunning beach but being situated in the more rural/natural beauty of the Cala Nostra development, with stunning views of the sea and local cove (and cliff walks) but also all the benefits of the wonderfully maintained amenities including 3 pools and 3 tennis of course the villa itself is both beautiful and fully modernised.

A little slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

I am almost reluctant to post a review incase it becomes too popular but the truth is the pics do not do justice to this idyllic setting or the villa. It was absolutely beautiful. We arrived at Gavin’s Villa with our three grown up children who absolutely loved the place and the setting. While we could have explored all the surrounding areas like Begur, we rarely left the villa as everything was on hand. Also we only had a week - not long enough!! The tennis courts, swimming pools, table tennis etc were all there and my particular favourite was the most magical cove just behind the tennis courts where I did most of my swimming and sunbathing while the guys played tennis etc. It really was idyllic and apart from the odd meal out in Tamariu which was stunning (all the restaurants are right on the seafront), we spent most evenings eating on the veranda overlooking the sea. The villa was equipped with everything you could ask for, and we were even greeted with a welcome pack. I especially found it useful to have a washing machine with a dryer which means when we return to this villa, we definitely won’t need to pack as many clothes! This is a place that all ages can enjoy and for completely different reasons - whether to actively enjoy the pristine sport facilities or just relax with a good book - it is quite simply a little slice of heaven, and we can’t wait to return.

Great Holiday Destination

  • 5 of 5

We've just enjoyed a lovely holiday staying in this property. We came as a family including our 2 young grandchildren. We all enjoyed the swimming pools, we were very impressed with the size of the largest. The grandchildren had great fun in the smaller pools. The property is on a quiet complex, with no through traffic. Lovely views from the property, overlooking the sea. The kitchen was well stocked with equipment, crockery etc and also we enjoyed using the good gas barbecue. We went to several local beaches only minutes away by car, our favourite was Aiguablava, lovely sandy beach and clear water - you do need to get there early as the car park fills up quickly in the peak holiday season. We found Gavin to be very helpful and quickly responded to any queries we had.

A great villa with an amazing sea view

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent a super 2 weeks at this property. It was lovely and spacious and had all that was needed. All our meals were eaten on the terrace enjoying the amazing sea view- so relaxing! The villa is in a great location being walking distance to a pebble beach or a short drive to a sandy one. My children loved the pool area and small playground which never seemed to have more than a couple of other families using the toddler and family pools at a time so it was perfect. The owner was also very helpful providing information prior to our stay.

All in all we all had a fantastic holiday!
