About Sue Wallis

We are a family of four who love visiting our holiday home and also letting it to families. We bought the house at Viscondado de Cabanyes five years ago and have refurbished the property adding a new bathroom, kitchen and pool! Last year we added a new kingsize bed, Wii U and Ikea kitchen equipment. I love letting our property and telling holidaymakers about the great region, restaurants and variety of beaches in the area, jst a few miles away to the north and South of Calonge. Our local knowledge ensures you have a fantastic holiday.

Sue Wallis purchased this villa in 2010

Why Sue Wallis chose Baix Emporda

Cabanyes has eveything! The beautiful beaches are easily reached, only a ten minute drive away, while the views of the Gavarres and peaceful outlook with the glorious garden and pool is so relaxing to return to after a days sightseeing. The villa is on a flat large garden enjoying sun all day, with shade provided with sunshades and roll down blinds on the patio. Everyone who visits agrees that it is a special villa in Cabanyes.

What makes this villa unique

Our garden is beautiful with views of the Gavarres hills from the terrace and patio. It enjoys sun from morning to sunset, and is an ideal relaxing spot after a busy day on the beach. We have furnished the house with everything you need for your holiday and our reviews reflect this. Every year we add something new for the house, new heating, new bathroom, kitchen, washing machine, beds so it is all up to date for our guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for a very nice week in your beautiful villa, the weather was splendid, we spent some days at the pool, went to the beach, to Figueras and Barcelona.

All of us really enjoyed our stay here, we really felt at home!

Beautiful location, spacious accommodation

  • 5 of 5

An amazing property, very well maintained and extremely clean with beautiful views of trees all around. So peaceful, with the wonderful sound of bird song and frogs for company. The accommodation is spacious with everything on hand to make our stay comfortable. A very short drive to the beach and to local medieval town with a superb local restaurant offering delicious traditional food.

Lovely Home From Home, With A Fabulous Pool & Beautiful Views!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in October 2016 Half Term. The Villa was an easy 40 minute drive from Girona Airport. We didn't land until 8.30pm, a quick phone call & we were met by the agent, who showed us around the villa.

The Villa is located at the end of a very quiet cul-de-sac, with beautiful views over the mountains. It's very well equipped with everything you could possibly need for your stay, especially with young children.

There is a huge amount of information available, in the villa, about the surrounding area & we enjoyed exploring the local beaches, our favourites were Llafranc & Calella in Palafrugell.

The weather was still warm enough to sunbath, enjoy the swimming pool and even swim in the Sea!

Sue & the Agents reply to messages really quickly, which is reassuring too.

4 ladies escaping the housework, husbands and kids for 3 nights! We were in heaven! Did a shop in the near by Aldi on route to the villa from airport - stocked up for the weekend and needn't have left the property. Was so gorgeous, I really want to go, maybe with the kids and hubby! ;o) the pool is devine, the property is perfect (maybe a waiter to top up our drinks while laying round the pool would have been nice!), and the views are stunning. loved every part our stay, Sue is wonderful and Ron was lovely - he and his wife live opposite and met us on our arrival, gave us a quick tour and popped by to check all was okay over the weekend. We went to Palamos and Platja d'aro - both lovely though the later my favourite. Thank you SO much Sue, I really would love to come back again. 10 out of 10, 5 stars! xxx

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a lovely review! We are so glad that it was all perfect and you enjoyed a girly getaway in the house for a weekend. May have to take up the waiter idea for poolside relaxation! Lidl is easy isn't it and Ron and Dor are such stars - they are there if needed which is so important. I like Platja D'Aro too, great shops and boutiques, restaurants and just the right amount of nightlife, laid back but with something going on for everyone. You are very welcome to return to soak up the pool and views again!!

delightfully refreshing stay in catalonia

  • 4 of 5

Well what can I say? Superb villa, relaxing views, cool pool, sun all day long, dinner on the terrace, drinks on the balcony and much more. Not only does this villa have everything you could need and want but it is located right near to palamos which is one of the coolest and friendliest seaside towns I have been to. You do need a car...believe me I attempted to run up the hill, well lets just say I walked in the end. The rooms are spacious and although this is a big villa the two of us didnt feel like we were rattling around in it. You will need your own towels, only if you're a bit like me and you like big ones. But luckily we bought our own. Ron and Doreen were always on hand to help but gave us our privacy and weren't at all nosy. The villa isn't overlooked but I did worry a tad about being noisy for the neighbours. Overall I couldn't fault our stay. Never been to Catalonia but I absolutely would go back. Highly recommend tapas in the square in palamos. Experience of a lifetime Ron will tell you about it and the best supermarket is undoubtedly suma in calogne, the rotisserie next to it is incredible. Make sure you visit palafrugall as its so beautiful. Enjoy!

Owner's Response: Thank you for a lovely review, we love the views, pool, and different area to chill too in the garden and house. Catalonia does have everything and I'm pleased that you loved Palamos!! There are plenty of big towels in the laundry! Just ask Doreen - Ron and Doreen are so friendly and helpful!! They can usually sort something out! We would welcome you to stay again anytime - thanks again.

Nice house, beautiful area and amazing pool

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay! The house is very nice and ideal for families (we were 5 adults and 1 child) The area is beautiful; close to the beach and the Dalí museum (everybody interrested in history and art should go there!) Sue has been so helpful and kind. If you are planing a holiday in Spain - this is the place!

wir hatten einen sehr schönen urlaub in diesem sehr schönen haus mit einem tollen garten. der neugebaute pool ist fantastisch, die ausstattung des anwesens sehr komplett. wir haben tolle ausflüge in der umgebung gemacht, die küste erkundet und sehr die naheliegenden strände genossen.

öfters waren wir abends in schönen bars und tollen restaurants in der umgebung unterwegs. besonders gut gefallen dabei hat uns das städtchen palamos mit seinen shopping und ausgehmöglichkeiten.

in verbindung mit diesem schönen haus ist die gegend um st. antoni auf jeden fall einen toller urlaubs-tipp

Our beautiful villa, set in a third of an acre garden, with breathtaking views is ideally situated for your holiday in a quiet, secluded spot in the exclusive environs of Viscondado de Cabanyes.

Villa Florencia provides a peaceful retreat but is five minutes away from the beaches and towns of the Costa Brava, situated on a flat plot but with stunning panoramic views, we are sheltered from the wind with fabulous all day sun.

We update the villa every year so you have new pans, new SMEG fridge, new induction oven, new crockery, Smart TV, fast broadband for 6 guests and new comfortable beds. The house, pool and garden is maintained to a high standard.

A five minute drive to the gently shelving white sandy beaches on the bay of Palamos, which has great restaurants and tapas bars in the old part of town as well as lovely shops, this part of the Costa Brava is famous for its wonderful food, golf courses, fantastic restaurants and local walks on the coastal paths from Playa D'aro to Palamos where you can watch the local fisherman daily auction.

You can mountain bike in the hills, visit Barcelona - an hour and a half away, the Dali museum in Figueras and historic Girona.

A ten minute drive to the beautiful sandy bay at S'Agaro, the harbour at St Feliu or up the coast to Llafranc & Calella for an evening stroll around the harbour in the evenings.

There are cool, trendy beach bars with lounge areas overlooking the blue Mediterranean sea at Platja D'Aro - with its boulevard of boutiques. Our villa is ideally suited centrally to visit all these local towns and beaches.

Closer to home, the cobbled streets of medieval Calonge has an authentic historic Catalan quality but there are also good amenities nearer the villa - plenty of supermarkets, bakers & butchers in Saint Antoni de Calonge.

Golf: There are 8 excellent courses nearby and a 2 par within a 40 minute drive of the villa. PGA de Catalynya, Mas Nou which hosted the Spanish Open in 2009. See house file for further details on contact numbers for all local golf courses and other activities.
