|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
This stunning luxury villa sits in its own multi-levels gardens in the prestigious Urbanisation of Les Teules, a short distance from the famous beaches of the Costa Brava. It is finished to a very high standard and comprehensively equipped with all modern conveniences. While the exterior of the property benefits from sunny as well as shady areas, the interior of the house has been tastefully decorated and feels like a 'home from home'. The pool is suitable for young children and can be seen from the terraces adjacent to the sitting and dining rooms. The property has central heating and air-conditioning throughout and is situated close to some excellent golf courses.
The villa is conveniently situated for daily excursions to Gerona, Barcelona and the South of France and also numerous renowned golf clubs, including the famous 18 hole at Mas Nou and the Girona PGA twin courses - recently the host of the Spanish Open.
Local culture: There is a fish museum in Palamos and it is next to the fish market. You can witness fishing boats returning from their catch at around 4pm and unloading their ware onto the quay side. You also have a chance to buy their fresh fish at the local fish market. It really makes a great BBQ! The property is within walking distance of several well marked long and short distance footpaths through wooded hills and along the coast. Local vineyards on some of these footpaths offer wine tasting and purchasing from their cellars.
Out & About: The villa is situated in the hills of the Gavarres and overlooking a wooded green belt valley with its own swimming pool. The nearest beach is in Platja d'Aro. It is just 5 minutes drive away from the house. There are many water-sports on offer. Many nice restaurants, bars and cafes for you to enjoy during your holiday. Tennis courts, a fantastic water (Aqua)Park, together with Go carts, and Quad Biking just 2 minutes drive from the house. Outside dining area and a fantastic swimming pool for summer use, make for a perfectly relaxing holiday. Les Teules is close to good road and rail links to Barcelona (1¼ hours), Girona (25 min) and Perpignan (1¼ hours) or just 5 minutes from excellent beaches and coves at St Antoni de Calonge, Palamos, and Platja d’Aro. Daily markets are held in local towns and there are excellent shops and year round restaurants in Platja d’Aro and Palamos. The pool and gardens are very private with panoramic views across the green valleys.
A lovely house perched high with spectacular views of the hills and town of Santa Christina D'Aro.Good sized pool with a large terrace and more beautiful views.Because of its position on the mountain side , there are a lot of steps so it is not really suitable for the elderly or the very young.
Note that the air conditioning is confined to the master bedroom which is a pity as the house was very warm while we were there in early July.Overall though we really enjoyed Helen and Johanns lovely home.It is a good base for touring.We took a trip to Barcelona and also to Figueres and Cadaques where Salvador Dali had lived.
We've had the most relaxing and comfortable holiday in villa Someren and agree with all the points mentioned by other visitors: everything we needed was available for our use and the pool made all the difference to the children. There are so many restrictions when using public/hotel pools in Spain that it often spoils their fun, so private pool was almost a liberating experience. There were also games, books and Sky TV to keep us all entertained in the evenings.
Helen, the owner, was very helpful in answering all the questions we had before out trip, meeting us on arrival in Cristina d'Aro and being contactable during our stay. There were no ‘hidden extras’ like with some of the other villas whose owners like to add extra charges for final cleaning, internet, air con use etc. Nor did we have a long list of DOs and DON’Ts - we felt completely at ease and could relax and unwind in a tranquil and beautiful setting of the villa.
A car is essential to enjoy the area and we would particularly recommend a couple of restaurants in Romanya de la Selva (Can Roquet and El Refugi) if looking for something special and different, although nearby seaside towns also offer plenty of choice to eat out.
The villa provides privacy and tranquillity with an easy access (by car) to a wide choice of beaches, restaurants, shopping, entertainment and cultural and historical heritage of Costa Brava. Although Gerona is the nearest airport, we flew with BA to Barcelona and found the road to Cristina d'Aro fast and straight forward.
I would not recommend this villa to families with very young children unless parents are prepared to provide constant supervision, but 8+ would be fine. Also probably not suitable for elderly or anybody who has difficulty with stairs as noted in the discription.
Amazing villa with fantasic views and set at the end of a quiet cul de sac. The property was immaculately clean and tidy and obviously well maintained and cared for by the owners. Our four children aged between 8-19 years had loads of fun in the pool especailly the novelty of swimming at night with the pool lights on. The accommodation had everything you could wish for including an american fridge with water and ice dispenser, an essential on hot days! The children also loved the ensuite bathroom with the built in radio! The outside areas were great too, there were spacious areas to eat as well as a comfortable sofa and chairs to relax on. A substantially built BBQ was ideal on evenings when you wanted to eat in with a glass of wine and watch another beautiful sunset. the villa is in a perfect location to relax and get away from it all. The town of Platja D'Aro is only a 10 minute drive away and offers beautiful sandy beaches, shopping and good restaurants. You really couldn't ask for more. the owners were attentive and helpful and couldn't have made our holiday more special. It is tyto be highly recommended and we would definately love to return . You won't be dissappointed.
Gedurende de maand augustus (2010) hebben we in deze fantastische villa van een heerlijke vakantie genoten. Het huis is voorzien van alle gemakken en het zwembad is uitstekend geschikt om heerlijk te relaxen. Gelegen in een rustige buurt bovenop een berg met een fantastisch uitzicht.
Regelmatig zijn we naar het strand geweest. Onze voorkeur ging uit naar Sant Antoni de Calonge, wat iets rustiger is als Palamos. Langs de promenade veel strandtentjes waar je wat kan eten en drinken.
Ook zijn we naar Girona, Lloret de Mar, Blanes en andere plaatsen geweest. Vanuit Blanes is het makkelijk om met de trein naar Barcelona te gaan,heerlijk koel in de trein en je komt midden in Barcelona uit !!
De woning is een ECHTE aanrader !!
Really enjoyed our time here - plenty of room for us and the kids, large patio, and great pool. Very close to the sea, with views of the mountains as a backdrop. As the villa is in a cul-de-sac, there is no passing traffic - very quiet, bliss! Only to be recommended very highly!
The villa is located on a hillside with beautiful views across the valley of Santa Cristina dÁro, with only a 10 min drive to the stunning beaches of the Costa Brava. A spacious and modern property finished to high standards and equipped with modern conveniences. There are 3 double bedrooms, 2 bathroom, a fully fitted kitchen and central heating throughout the property. The lounge has comfortable seating for 6 people, British & Dutch satellite TV, DVD, LCD TV and WiFi connection. Patio doors lead to the large terrace with tables and chairs for 10 people and an undercover lounge area with comfortable sofas. BBQ area with additional seating. Stairs lead down to the private pool area where there are additional chairs and sun loungers. There is plenty of off street parking. Excellent golf courses and beaches are within a 10 minute drive.
Other Activities: Quad biking and Paint Ball
Golf: There are 8 excellent championship courses and 2 par 3 courses within 40 min. drive of the property.The famous Mas Nou Golf Course ,with its incredible views, lies at the top of the mountain directly opposite the villa. Don't assume that a low handicap ensures you wont loose a few balls!!! For the less adventurous there are 7 other golf courses at normal altitude! A visit to the ever improving and expanding Empordar Golf Courses is essential.
