The villa is great, but certain areas are very tired and need attention. First impression on arrival, paint peeling from outer walls and patches of plaster missing.The downstairs double bedroom is just that, no room for anything else except the bed. Villa is on a VERY steep hill, not a problem if you are fit and enjoy the challenge but you have to negotiate this to get to the supermarkets about 800m away. We did not rent cars as taxis are good and cheap. Station is a reasonable walk away to take you up and down the coast and to Barcelona. The pool was fantastic and loved by everyone and the villa itself was more than adequate for needs, with super views in a quiet location. It is not a beach location, about 1200m to the nearest beach.
Problems we had, both showers were blocked, we had to clean them out. TV is not cable or satellite, only Spanish freeview. Bathrooms are only showers, no baths. Apart from 3 poolside chairs the rest were ripped and torn and needed throwing. In the poolside washroom sink was blocked and strange things came out of the tap, and the shower was unusable, tiles missing. Shower outside by the pool worked. Linens/towels are NOT provided, if you want them Barcelona Vacances charge €15 person when you arrive. The final cleaning charge of €150 is non negotiable, OK, but then to be told that when you leave you have to take all your rubbish, in our case 4 sacks, to the local bins, again approx 800 metres away, or a cost will be deducted from deposit is a bit much.!!! Despite these aggravations we did enjoy ourselves, when you look at the basics it is a fine villa, it just needs work doing to bring it up to expectations for the money paid.
We stayed in the villa in May 2018. Josep was really helpful in organising our stay. Great communication and even bought some essentials like milk eggs and bread before our arrival!
The villa is exactly like the photos. It has everything you need. The pool is perfect for a family. We had 2 young children. The outdoor space is really good. Such a cool villa.
Canet de Mar centre and the beach is a 10 minute walk downhill there and uphill on the way back. The train station is right by the beach and only 10 mins to Callella.
There’s a great beach bar/restaurant at Canet called Kai Beach. We also found nice pizza takeaway called Torre Rossa near villa.
We really enjoyed our stay!
Thank you Josep.
