About the property

Modern spacious 4-bedroom/2-bathroom villa with tropical garden, swimming pool.

Located precisely on the border of the 'Parque Nacional el Montnegre y el Corredor', overlooking the valley of 'Sant Cebrià de Vallalta' and the beach town of 'Sant Pol de Mar' along the Costa Maresme of Catalunya/Barcelona and proudly owned by citizens of Aruba, the Villa CatalAruba is - surely so - uniquely defined as 'A touch of the Caribbean paradise island Aruba in the midst of Catalonia, district of Barcelona, Spain!'

Accessed via a 2 km swirling but picturesque road through the lush woods just outside the town center of Sant Cebrià de Vallalta, you will arrive as if approaching an oasis, suddenly at the entrance of the Can Palau private subdivision; an area in the mountains with relatively all new private villas and homes. At the top area of this subdivision, you will find your private oasis of Villa CatalAruba, a modern and very spacious 4-bedroom/2-bathroom villa with a large tropical garden, free-style swimming pool, BBQ facility and exceptional panoramic mountain and ocean views!

This villa has a totally new and modernly decorated living room area featuring an all-white durable faux leather sofa with electronically reclining relax chair at left end and a chaise lounge right end, supplemented with a matching leather lounge chair and a 50' HD Smart TV, Satellite TV connection and BlueRay DVD Home Theater set. There is an amazing ocean and pool view from your living room, which latter flows gracefully into the dining area with custom designed cutlery cabinet and an 8-seat extendable glass dining table.

Adjacent to the dining area is the fully equipped modern kitchen, including built-in white goods such as a cabinet-look dishwasher, stainless steel microwave/convection oven, stainless steel conventional oven and stainless steel full-size refrigerator. All the utensils and appliances that you would generally need to prepare your exquisite holiday meals are available in this kitchen and, most importantly, lots of extra storage space!

Off the rear of the kitchen there is the main entry hall which lends access to the hall towards the bedroom wing of the villa with all four bedrooms on the right side, facing the ocean. First in the bedroom hall on your right you will find the fourth bedroom/office with a modern Murphy bunk-bed, built-in modern closets, office desk, access to terrace and ocean view. Next is the third bedroom with two attachable twin beds (thus can also be used as a queen-size bed), built-in modern closets, access to terrace and ocean view. Continuing through the hall is the second bedroom with a queen-size bed, built-in modern closets, access to terrace and ocean view. The second bathroom is on the left side of the hall, with a contemporary vanity, modern toilet and bidet, shower and whirlpool tub for every guest's ultimate relaxation. At the end of the hall you will find your master bedroom with a high-end dual viscosity mattress (soft and firm, so choose your side!) king-size bed, walk-in closet area, and of course also access to terrace and ocean view! The private master bathroom similarly has a contemporary vanity, modern toilet and bidet, shower and larger whirlpool tub.

From the main entry hall you also have access to the laundry room with washer, dryer, iron and iron board; the rear court yard and the two-car garage with remote controlled panel-fold door.

The most exciting spaces of the premises are the outdoor entertainment areas! There is a covered area with natural stone backdrop, having a comfortable terrace sofa set and an outdoor dining set, right next to the built-in full-size charcoal BBQ grill, all overlooking the fairly sized kidney-shaped swimming pool and the the ocean....!

The final complementing feature of Villa CatalAruba is the 3-level 1,000 square meter large tropical garden, with at the top level a small cacti-inspired garden; at main level many palms, flower trees, herbal trees and olive tree, whereas all grounds are covered with grass lawn, natural stone (pool terrace) and white gravel. The sub (front) level of this large garden will entice you with more herbal, fruit and flower trees as well as a fish pond above which there is a convenient wooden pedestrian bridge for your leisurely walk through the garden.

Begin your vacation planning with the right choice; include Villa CatalAruba in your luxury vacation lifestyle and let it become your most unforgettable comfort, relaxation and beach vacation experience ever!

Why Rachel Riley-Noordermeer chose Sant Cebrià de Vallalta

Our beautiful home is our second residence. We chose this house because of the tranquillity and breath-taking surroundings (Montenegre National park), stunning views at the mountains and the Mediterranean Sea, and the relatively close proximity to our favourite Spanish city, Barcelona. After a day in the hustle and bustle of this fantastic city it is great to come home to the sound of whistling birds only and spacious environment of a national park, which you will not find in any metropolitan city!

What makes this house unique

Totally reformed and refurnished luxury free standing Villa in a tranquil setting on the edge of the Montenegre Parc with stunning mountain and Ocean Views. Very close to the Costa Brava and Barcelona!

The village of Sant Cebria is about a 3 KM drive and the pitoresque beach town of Sant Pol de Mar is reached within 10 minutes.

A fantastic stay - een fantastisch verlof

  • 5 of 5

Met onze familie van 4 personen hadden we een fantastisch verblijf van 1 weekje in deze villa in Sant Cebria de Vallalta.

Omdat we de reis van België tot Spanje voornamelijk 's nachts deden, arriveerden we al rond 10.30h aan de woning. Geen probleem echter, want de verantwoordelijke ter plaatse - en hierbij dus een hele dikke pluim aan Marcello - deed er alles aan om ons onmiddellijk in de woning te laten, daar waar dit in feite eerst rond 16.00h zou zijn. De ontvangst maar ook de verdere begeleiding door Marcello was omzeggens perfect - en dat is een hele geruststelling mocht er toch ergens iets fout lopen of een defect optreden.

De woning is perfect voor groepen tot 6 a 8 personen met zijn 4 separate slaapkamers. We hebben al heel wat huizen gezien - maar van deze villa waren we onder de indruk. Misschien niet zozeer het formaat, maar vooral de netheid en het feit dat zowat alles voorhanden is. Niet te vergeten de garage om 1 wagen veilig en buiten de zon te kunnen parkeren - ook dat is een enorme troef vonden we.

Het uitzicht dat deze woning te bieden heeft is adembenemend mooi - zicht over de bergen tot op zee. De bereikbaarheid van de woning is erg goed, de minder goede Spaanse binnenwegjes moet je erbij nemen. Alles wat je verder nodig hebt aan voorzieningen (supermakt / bakker / slager) is te vinden binnen handbereik - namelijk in het dorpje van Sant Cebria. Een wagen is daarbij natuurlijk wel een absolute must.

Wij deden enkele bezoeken aan Barcelona per auto - en ook dat is perfect meegevallen. Je doet de afstand van de woning tot centrum Barcelona in iets minder dan een uurtje - de oprit van de snelweg ligt op ca. 7 km. Als uitvalsbasis is deze woning daarvoor dus perfect gelegen. Barcelona is zeer toegankelijk met de wagen - amper files en voldoende parkings te vinden ook.

Anderzijds zit je vlakbij Calella, Blanes, Lloret De Mar en zelfs Tossa De Mar. Overdag heb je de rust van de bergen - 's avonds kan je perfect de drukte van het strand en de dijk opzoeken. Wij vonden Blanes heel leuk en heel levendig.

Voor al degenen die naar deze regio willen reizen, en eventueel Barcelona willen bezoeken zou ik zeggen - niet twijfelen!

Vandaar dan ook onze beoordeling met 5 sterren, in dit geval dubbel en dik verdiend!

Owner's Response: Beste Erik, Hartelijk dank voor de uitgebreide review. Wij zijn erg blij te horen dat het jullie zo goed bevallen is in ons huis! We doen ons uiterste best om alles tot in de puntjes te verzorgen en een goede service te verlenen aan elk van onze gasten. Evenals jullie genieten wij, na een dag of avond in een drukke stad, enorm van de rust bij thuiskomst. Nogmaals dank om ons huis te kiezen voor jullie vakantie en hopelijk zien we jullie nog eens terug, Met Vriendelijke Groet, Alan & Rachel Riley

Lovely villa, secluded location

  • 5 of 5

Seven of us spent a great week at Villa Catalruba. Perched on a mountainside with fantastic views of the valley and sea below, a car is an absolute must. No facilities within walking distance. But plenty of well-stocked supermarkets in the village of Santa Cebria (10 min drive) and the seaside town of Sant Pol de Mar (15 min drive). We got the train to Barcelona several times (parked in Sant Pol and took about an hour) and visited another town a little further up the coast. The villa itself is beautiful - spacious and luxurious with air-con (useful at night). Pool area was the most used - shaded seated area for relaxing and eating with a large barbecue. We ate outside every night. Good kitchen facilities with loads of utensils, pots, pans etc. Can thoroughly recommend it for a very relaxing break.

Owner's Response: What a wonderful review! thank you! We are glad you enjoyed our home and loved it as much as we do. We tried to equip it in such way that there is not much left to need. Since the villa is a bit remote from the village you get to enjoy the peace of the national park and the beautiful views! we hope to welcome you back when your travels bring you back to the province of Barcelona.

A great property with a great view

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly as advertised in the listing. I have no complaints about the property at all. It was very clean and well maintained throughout. The pool and seating / BBQ area was excellent as were the views from the property. From a customer service perspective contact with the owners rep was good from start to finish and on arrival the local rep was there to meet us and talked us through the property and the locality. A car is highly recommended for this property as the villa is remotely located up a steep hill so you will need it to get around. However, the nearest village ( Sant Cebria de Vallalta) has a nice supermarket and some restaurants and is only a short drive away ( approx 5 -10 mins). There is also an 18 Hole Pitch and Putt in Sant Cebria where you can also hire some clubs if required. At the end of your game there is a nice little bar / restaurant to relax in.

St Pol du Mar is a small town approx 10 -15 mins drive away which has a train station that has a regular service into Barcelona. Journey time is approx 50 mins. St Pol du Mar has a bigger selection of shops and restaurants and has a nice bit of beach that is easily accessible.

All in all we had a great week staying at Villa CatalAruba and would highly recommend it.

Owner's Response: Dear Chris & Family, thank you for the lovely review! We are happy to learn that you enjoyed our house and its environment. You indeed need to have a car when staying there. I hope that besides St. Cebria & St. Pol you were able to visit the coastal villages & beaches of Canet de Mar and Arenys de Mar. It was a pleasure having you stay in our house and we hope to welcome you back in the future! Rachel & Alan Riley
