The villa is as discribed but the views have to be seen to be believed.

Great villa, location and surroundings

  • 5 of 5

The house was immaculate, clean and bright. I love to cook and I enjoyed the BBQ, and all the seasonal food and fishes we found at the market. The view is spectacular, this was the perfect rest after our busy time in Barcelona!

I can honestly say the villa was exactly as described, and perfect for us. The views of the mountain are lovely, the villa is very well equipped. Thoughtful touches such as games, books, dvds were much appreciated on the few nights we spent in. The beaches are only a 5-10 minutes drive away and the town of Santa Cristina (2 minutes drive) is well equipped with a large modern supermarket for all your self-catering needs. We enjoyed swimming and water-aerobics in the pool, and loved the barbecue.

The owners provided excellent customer service and responded immediately to my initial enquiry.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this villa to friends and family.

Love it!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed 3 times at this villa over the last 2 years, once in May, twice in July and I really want to say how much I love this place.

Their listing is accurate and in fact the reality is even better in our experience. On arrival every time it only takes us very little time to feel on vacation and at home.

We would definitely recommend this villa to you. The descriptions are honest and it really is a great place to stay if you want a relaxing holiday in northern Spain.

The views from the villa are breath-taking. Sitting out on the terrace each morning with our coffees was a perfect way to start each day.

Some days, to be honest, we just lazed around the pool but generally we drove down to the beautiful beach of Platja d'Aro and planned our days whilst having a snack in one of the beach front cafes.

There's so much to see within a short drive and you absolutely must visit Barcelona, which is very close. Even if you're not interested in architecture or history, you should see the fantastic Gaudi buildings and the Parc Guell. In any event it's a buzzing city and well worth the short drive there. There are so many other great places less than an hour or two's drive and you can even hop over the border into France!

Apart from the history and culture, we also love the sea and the villa has been perfect for us. You'll never be short of great beaches and coves along the Mediterranean coast there.

Now, if you decide to book it, please don't take the dates we want, as we'll be going there again next summer!!

Super vacances

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passe de superbes vacances dans cette villa. La vue est exceptionnelle, et l'ensemble de la propriete est tres agreable.

Il y avait tout ce dont nous avions besoin, et les lits etaient tres bons.

Il y a beaucoup de plages et des villages a explorer, et beaucoup de petits commerces sympa dans les environs, par contre une voiture est indispensable.

Lovely place for family holidays

  • 5 of 5

We (2 families - 4 adults +2 children 6 and 8 years old) spent 2 weeks in this Villa in Juny 2011. The house is very nice and clean. It's placed high enough on the hill, so you get a wonderful view, but have to hire a car to go there (about 5 min to drive from the nearest town with the supermarket).

Nearby (10-20 min to drive) there are some interesting, beautiful villages and beaches, and it's not too long to get to the beautiful city of Girona.

The house: everything is very clean and beautifull. You find maps and tourist info about the enviroment, even several cookbooks. It was very nice and we tried some recipes on outside barbecue. There are toys for the children, ping-pong table. Not very large, but nice pool was great fun for the everyone.

The outside area is very comfortable and full of flowers and from the pool area you have a really wonderful view.

Paul who manages the Villa was very helpfull and kind.

We had only one problem by staying at the Villa - no internet access, but, of course it isn't a main thing on holiday :))

To sum up, I would recommend this lovely villa to everyone.

Thanks for great family holidays!

The villa lies just above the old part of Santa Cristina down in the valley. In just ten minutes you'll reach the Mediterranean sea with beaches and secluded bays with crystal clear water. There is a nice trail all along the coast to enjoy the best of the Costa Brava. From Palamos, the port with fishing activity, you'll pass Calonge and Playa d'Aro, holiday villages with a lot of activities,restaurants and bars and a good night life. Heading further south there's S'Agaro, a residential area for the rich and famous, with the beaches of Sa Conca and Sant Pol very suitable for families with small children. Sant Feliu de Guixols is an authentic Spanish village with a fishing harbour and a large beach. From here you can follow the spectacular coastal drive towards Tossa de Mar, to visit the medieval part. The cities of Girona and Barcelona are perfect for a day visit. For trekking or skiing you'll find the Pyrenees mountains at less than 2 hours
