Beautiful house in a lovely setting
The house is beautiful, in a very preserved setting on the border of the natural park. It’s quiet and peaceful with beautiful views to the sea. There’s all the appliances one might need and even more, the interiors have been tastefully decorated with beautiful fabrics.
There’s plenty of space, two huge dining tables (one indoor and one outdoor). And watching the sunrise and the last lights of the day from the terrace was truly magical. There’s a nearby beach 5 minutes by foot. And the center of cadaques is a 15 minutes walk away (the 5 last minutes to the house are quite physical on a rocky slope, you should be aware of that if you don’t have a car because nor the taxis or the ecocar around cadaques would take us right to the front of the house.)
The communication with the owner Sofie was excellent, she was reactive to the messages and gave us lots of tips regarding Cadaqués and the surroundings.
It was our first holiday in Cadaques and we loved the laid out vibe of the place. We were 8 adult friends and all in one had a very pleasant stay if it weren’t for two things
- The lack of AC or ventilation solution. We came in July and it was very hot outside. There are white non covering curtains on the windows and the house faces the east. This means that we were awaken first by the sun light starting 6 in the morning but more importantly by the heat. It was like being in a sauna and the nights were very very difficult. We pointed it to Sofie but unfortunately she has been unable to come out with a short term solution. I regret to say that this spoiled a part of our stay.
- The caretaker Sonia was an awfully rude lady. From the beginning communication with her has been difficult. But on the last day, we tried to negotiate to leave our luggages in the hallway for two extra hours, she said no. The check out was at 11am and she arrived 10 minutes early and began shouting at us because we weren’t ready. We left three garbage bags behind us because we didn’t have a car, were overloaded with our luggages and she insulted us, telling us that we were poorly educated and ultimately threatened to call the police. We felt like she surely wouldn’t have done the same with a group of older people but since we were 8 girls in our twenties she went beyond the limits and it’s a shame. And also unfair because we left the house in an impeccable condition.
