About kwhitehead

After many years of dreaming about it, we finally, designed, and built our holiday home. A lot of thought and care has gone into every detail. We wanted a home that would be a real home from home, and not a typical place to put your head. We have achieved exactly what we wanted, and now share our dream holiday setting with many guests every year. Awaking to the sound of birds singing, lounging around the pool with the family during the day. The garden and pool has that special magic, that lights up in the evenings to that perfect setting, that you don't want to leave, not even to go shopping.

kwhitehead purchased this villa in 1997

Why kwhitehead chose Calonge

We choose this area, because we have spent many family holidays in various locations, and Calonge was the place that impressed us most, and after coming back again, and again, we decide it's the place for us.

What makes this villa unique

It's the perfect place, easy distance from Barcelona, and Girona airport. You are in a quiet location, but have everything within easy distance, from the designer shops in Platja d'aro, to the the fishing port of Palamos, where you can buy fresh fish every day. The Costa Brava for us, is the prettiest coast we have ever seen. We have no regrets, and staying at our Villa, neither will you.

Truly much more the we expected. 10/10

  • 5 of 5

Arriving at this villa left us with our mouths wide open, we really could believe it! What a find, so peaceful, & in August! We have visited this area for the last 9 years & finally found a villa that is to our standards, very comfortable beds, spacious bedrooms, all en suite, it was so nice for us all to have our own bathrooms!! Very well equipped kitchen, large living room, and the outside has plenty of shade , immaculate garden, which all lights up in the evening to create a real film star feeling. We had amazing weather, hot, just like we wanted, a big swimming pool, which was great for all the family, large shallow play area for ball games. We visited the nearby village of Calonge, loved the medieval castle, and also tried lots of the local restaurants. The nearby beaches were great, the coves between Calonge and Platja d'aro were our favourite for snorkelling. There's a great information book at the villa, that was extremely useful, and made things so much easier for us. Now that we've found the perfect villa, we will be back!

Fantastic property and a great stay - just needs some air-con!

  • 4 of 5

The property in Calonge was terrific - clean, well-equipped and in a good (and scenic) location. The pool is a slightly strange shape but large enough for a big group. Calonge itself is a sleepy town but there are a small number of decent shops, supermarkets and bars. It's also well placed for some lovely beaches - mostly busy but some quiet ones south of L'Estartit. Girona is definitely worth a visit as are the Greek / Roman remains at Ampurias.

The only downside of the property is that it could do with some air conditioning. Night-time temperatures in August are just too high to be handled by the fans provided.

Nevertheless, a really nice property which is well maintained and managed.

A lovely family house

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much and the kids loved the pool. The kitchen was so well equipped and the villa was spotless on our arrival. There were so much to see and do in the area too. We had a couple of niggles though - why not some re-cycling bins or even one bin with a lid? Guess it must be Homeaway policy, but really one dishwasher tablet and binbag! No toilet rolls? We bought all the aforementioned and because we were driving were able to take all that remained back with us. I am sure those who are flying must leave their excess - so what happens to it? It was a bit tricky too with 3 sets of adults - one of the twin rooms had pretty rickety beds. Karen sorted out the oven but then, through no fault of hers, the pool lights went out of sync and we had a couple of days with cold water only in the downstair bathrooms.

She is a real treasure. Approachable and really kind, especially about ensuring the baby had a good cot. But it would be helpful to have some basic instructions about the house on paper, including the wifi code, in case she is not available. We stress that these niggles failed to spoil a lovely holiday but they could be so easily remedied for the future.

Owner's Response: Dear Mary Anne, Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review with such lovely comments. My aim is for clients to be happy on holiday and that they enjoy this wonderful corner of the world. The niggles have been sorted, and recycling bins are now at the villa, the toilet paper issue has now been solved for all future guest. Clients normally do leave things at the villa, but if they are travelling by car they do tend to take everything with them, which is perfectly normal. To solve this there will be supplies left in the linen cupboard for the cleaner to use on changeover. The oven is brand new, and still under guarantee, and seems to be working fine now. I received the information about the hot water in your departure email, thank you for that, this was just a fuse and was fixed immediately. I will check the single beds with the clients that are there now, and these too can be replaced if needed. Thank you again, & I look forward to having you back in the future. Kind Regards Karen

We had a good time and we enjoyed the stunning nature.

The house is near the beach and various attractions.

Sant Antonio de Calonge
Car: recommended

Calonge-Sant Antoni is located in the heart of the Costa Brava. Calonge is situated inland ( 2.5 km from the coast) and is the cultural and historical centre of the town, a special note should be made of the medieval castle (12th-13th century), the church of Sant Marti and the curious Carrer del Calcul ( Calcul street). Here one can explore the interesting network of streets and alleys which form the town centre.

Sant Antoni has an extensive programme of sports and pleasure activities to be found on the beaches in the summer months.

Other Activities: Kayak
