The house has great views and is perfect for a family.

  • 4 of 5

We have just got back from and have to say that the house has fantastic views, our 3 boys loved the pool, and we really liked the area. Lots of activities available for the kids and close to the beach.

The house inside is fine, the only thing we would have liked was a sofa in the lounge rather than lots of individual chairs......

Thanks for allowing us to stay in your house and we would definatly consider coming back next year!

Relaxing week in Costa Brava

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a quiet place in beautiful settings, with private pool and guaranteed sunshine. And this is exactly what we got.

The house is located in a private housing area on a sunny hillside ( evening sun until 19.30) with a stunning view, roughly 10min drive from Platja D'Aro (with well equipped Carrefour supermarket). Area is planned carefully so that the houses are not facing each other, creating almost ideal feeling of solitude and privacy. There is fair amount of forested areas around, one night we were surprised with a strange sound from the backyard - went checking and there was a whole family of wild boars with puppies... our kids were totally exalted and wanted to set up a nightwatch the following nights in order to see them again :-)

The house itself has 3 bedrooms. Is tastefully decorated - classic style, not fancy but comfortable and convenient. Terrace is right next to pool - this is where we spent most of our time anyway. The temperature around avg 27deg was just perfect as the hillside location kept away the excess heat You would experience in the cities. Small downside is the absence of AC - in the bedrooms it was too warm (at least for us from nordic country). There was one fan which though slightly helped. The beds are OK, though a little stiff for our preference.

The area itself has enough to do for a week - aquapark for kids, good food and nice traditional restaurants ( we preferred the villages of Llafranc and Tamariu in 20min drive), charming medieval towns (Rupit, Pals), Barcelona with it's famous Camp Nou, Gaudi creations etc.

Regarding the price level, Costa Brava felt a bit on a higher side. We have been used to rent a villa in Portugal and with comparable quality level the prices for house rent and food were more expensive.

Overall, me and my family had a wonderful week and we hope to be back again !

Magnifique !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un séjour merveilleux dans cette belle maison.

Elle est confortable, bien équipée. La vue sur la mer et les montagnes est extrêmement apaisante.

Les moustiquaires dans toutes les pieces sont d'une très grande utilité.

Les alentours de la maison sont assez calmes. La localisation permet de se rendre facilement à divers lieux de visite ou plages.

Les personnes qui s'occupent de la maison sont charmantes et très réactives en cas de questionnement.

Il s'agit d'une location que je conseille volontiers.

Heerlijk genoten met de kinderen

  • 4 of 5

We hebben met onze kinderen een geweldige tijd gehad in dit gezellige huis met een prachtig uitzicht over zee vanaf het zonneterras met zwembad. De kinderen hebben zich prima vermaakt in het zwembad en in de tuin (verstoppertje spelen). Huis, tuin en zwembad werden keurig verzorgd tijdens ons verblijf door de vriendelijke familie Tops.

Door de beschutting van de bomen was de temperatuur in het huis en slaapkamers nog prima te doen. Kortom, we hebben heerlijk genoten.

Owner's Response: Madame, Merci pour vos remarques. Le matelas était en commande et malheureusement n'a pas pu être livré à temps. Revenez un jour pour l'essayer! Nous espérons que votre dos n'a pas trop souffert. Hilde ne m'a pas signalé votre problème sinon on aurait pu trouver une solution La description sur le webb indique l'absence d'un sèche cheveux, micro-ondes et essuie-mains. Ce dernier peut étonné mais par le passé les locataires venaient souvent en voitures et amenaient le nécessaire. Mais je crois que nous devons prendre vos remarques en compte. Tout en vous remerçiant, Guy Noppen
