About the property

Casa Bonita , 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms. Sleeps 6 persons

Casa Bonita is located in the area of Riells in the beautiful Costa Brava village of L'Escala. The property is in a small community of 11 private villas with their own pools, which is ideal for groups or families holidaying together who want their own space. Villas are set over two floors with the main living area on the ground floor with kitchen and dining area. A bedroom with twin beds is located on this floor as is the shower room and w/c, utility at rear. The upper floor has two bedrooms, one with twin single beds and the other room a king size bed with veranda overlooking the pool. There is also a bathroom upstairs. It has ashower and WC. There is Air-Con in the Lounge and Master Bedroom.

Outside a private pool is located in a private garden with terraces and a shaded area at the rear & BBQ.

The beach of Riells is located at about 15 min. Opposite to the beach are numerous bars and restaurants.

About L'Escala : In summer the town becomes bustling but not at all rowdy. The absence of any high-rise buildings gives it a bright and friendly atmosphere. Its geographical position makes it an ideal base for travelling further a field. Swimming pool and spa opening soon!! Nearby Figures was home to the famous artist Salvador Dali. Then there are the 'Villages Typiques' just north of the border near Perpignan. To the south there is the provincial capital of Gerona and the capital of Catalonia - Barcelona. To the west is the lake at Banyoles, Ripoll, duty free Andorra and the snow-capped Pyrenees with skiing for many months of the year. 2km north lays the walled medieval village of St. Marti with its pleasant Plaza Major, many bistros and pretty church and museum. There are several top Golf Clubs within 30 min. drive, a lover 1hr30 Min drive brings you to a popular but not crowded ski resort and for the less adventurous of us tobogganing you are also able to snow board here and have lessons.

For your convenience: Taxis to and from Airports or stations can be arranged. Car hire can also be arranged.

Cleaning before arrival is included in the price.

High chair and cot can be provided

One set of bed linen, beach, bath and hand towels are provided as standard

Love the property and location have stayed before and will again

  • 5 of 5

Having been going to L'Escala for 40+ years and staying in many different villas this is one of my favourite, the villa itself is very comfortable and well looked after. The location is perfect for us with only a 10-15 min walk to shops, beach and restaurants, loved our stay there and look forward to going back next year.

Casa Bonita II - an excellent choice!

  • 5 of 5

We keep returning here (4th visit this year) mainly because we know that Casa Bonita properties have everything we want from a holiday. It is almost a home from home. The houses are very clean and well-equipped, with a plentiful supply of freshly laundered towels and linen. The pool and surrounding area is very clean and well maintained. Steve is always charming and friendly and we would highly recommend Casa Bonita II to anyone visiting the area.

L'Escala is lovely, with clean beaches and some nice restaurants. I would suggest taking care with the 'cocktail bars' - the mojitos are of variable quality!

For a special occasion meal we recommend trying one of the lovely fish restaurants near the marina. It is more expensive here but the quality of the food is very good and the service is excellent.

A great house, very complete!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Casa Bonita! The thing we loved most I guess is that when you book for 6 persons in Spain, they actually fit in! It is spacy, has 2 good bathrooms, more than enough closets!!! and a lovely pool. The only shame was that they could have done more with the garden. Some grass would have been nice. And maybe an extra table at the back of the house, because in the sun is too hot to have dinner (with young children we Dutch people eat early when the sun is still hot!).

What a lovely surprise it was to find out that there is a great forrest just 3 streets away. I had the best walks early morning with the dog.

All in all, a great location, nice village, beautiful nice house, and they really do make you feel very welcome! Thanks!
