Charming, comfortable house in prime location
This is the most charming house, in a lovely, central location in the old town but removed from the hubbub of the Passeo. We arrived on a Saturday, found an on-street place to park our car, and hardly got back into it again for a week, because there are so many things to do within walking distance, including the Dali house in Portlligat and wonderful walks (which the tourist office provides a great map of) both along the coast and up into the hills. The top bedroom, opening onto the terrace, is particularly splendid, but all of the bedrooms are comfortable and the facilities are grand. The property is managed professionally and helpfully. May was a perfect time to visit.
The description is exactly as you'll find the house. Beautiful house which has recently been renovated, close to everything in a quiet street. Highly recommended.
Propriétaire sympas, belle maison idéalement placée !
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans cette propriété décorée avec goût et située au cœur de Cadaques. Nous avons une vue magnifique de la terrasse située tout en haut ! Seul problème, c'est la chaleur et les escaliers sont nombreux (4 étages ou 5).
Jolie maison dans le coeur du village
la maison est magnifique mais il faut monter 5 volées d'escalier pour atteindre la terrasse . la vue sur la terrasse est extraordinaire.
la chaleur dans les chambres est terrible
Il n'est pas normal de conserver la caution pendant 3 semaines, pour un séjour de 3 nuits !
4 jours à Cadaqués
belle maison de pécheur décorée avec gout et charme
déployée sur cinq niveaux et terrasse avec très belle vue
quelques points à améliorer : certains matériels sont très usagés, par exemple les chaises longues de la terrasse
des problèmes d'écoulement des salles de bains et douches apparaissent
bien en demi saison, déconseillé aux familles avec jeunes enfants
bref un bel endroit bien situé dans le vieux village
Cadaques est un bel endroit vivant et agréable
