fabulous place to stay near Palamos

  • 5 of 5
We had an October half term break in this house. The weather was still warm enough for swimming-the beaches nearby are great- and perfect for hiking in the nearby Parc Natural Zona Volcànica de la Garrotxaas. The beaches around Palamos promenade have great play areas -with nice restaurants by the beach- so you can enjoy a a glass while the kids play.
The kitchen/ dining /living area of the house have a great open plan layout -so cooking is fun! and the views are great over the village to the sea. When you open up all the glass doors the pool and terraces are a very natural extension to the house, so eating and drinking outside is very convenient. The house and pool were in immaculate order when we arrived and we found both the owner and the caretaker very direct and helpful.

Fabulous winter break

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful January break at this spectacular house near Calonge. If anything, the house is even more stylish and attractive than it's description. Although the design is contemporary, clean and sleek it is also a very comfortable house. You can truly relax and feel at home with big comfy settees and solid wooden furniture. And it certainly lives up to it's Grand Designs' credentials.

The house was perfect for our winter break with plenty of space for six. The master bedroom is particularly attractive with fantastic views over to the Bay of Palamos. The same views can be enjoyed from the kitchen, living and dining area and, of course, when lounging by the pool.

It's just a short walk to the traditional village of Calonge, and very close to the chic resort of Palamos, yet the neighbourhood is quiet and peaceful. We were also lucky with amazingly mild weather and lots of sunshine all week long. We will certainly be back and would recommend this property for an unforgetable break at any time of year.

The house made our holiday, an absolute delight

  • 5 of 5
My family spent 10 days at Tierra de la Selva in July 2012, we had extended family with us and all six of us had a ball. We had plenty of space and were never "on top of each other". The children hardly left the pool but we loved the beach in Sant Antoni de Calonge, great fun and a really traditional Spanish family resort. The area is terrific and we spent a few days exploring Pals, St Marti, la Bisbal etc.

The house though, made our holiday, it was an absolute delight. We loved the contemporary design and the folding windows opening out onto the deck made it for us, we immediately felt completely at home and we didn't want to leave the house at the end of the holiday ! And of course the house was immaculately clean, very well equipped and the facilities perfect, we loved the integral Siemens coffee maker !

It was a treat and a special occasion, but we'd love to have the opportunity to return. Thank you for thinking of absolutely everything!

A fabulous week in the sunshine

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week at Tierra de la Selva in May 2012 and had the most fabulous time. The house was clean, very well equipped and the facilities perfect. We had some wonderful candlelit evening meals on the terrace and the views are spectacular, we had some great sunsets.

The nearby restaurants and bars were very handy and of good quality, on one evening we used a local taxi service which was surprisingly cheap and meant we could all enjoy the local wine

A day at the beach was great fun and we particularly enjoyed the stroll along the promenade at Palamos, a very Spanish resort which seemed to come alive on the evenings. However, we were very glad to retreat back to our wonderful house and enjoy more wine on the decking, we cannot wait to come back this year

SUPERBE VILLA !

  • 5 of 5
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour à la villa Tierra de la Selva à Calonge. Le quartier est calme et résidentiel. Le propriétaire est très gentil. Il vous répond par e-mail rapidement et est soucieux de votre bien être dans la villa. Imma est une personne charmante. Elle vous accueille avec le sourire et vous explique tout le fonctionnement de la villa. Dès votre arrivée, les lits sont faits et deux serviettes de bain sont prévues pour chaque occupant.
La villa est tout à fait conforme à la description avec en plus une cafetière à café intégrée Siemens remplie, à votre arrivée, de café, un séchoir électrique ainsi que 2 fours. Elle est moderne et très lumineuse avec sa terrasse plein Sud et sa piscine à débordement dont la vue donne sur la mer au loin. La terrasse est bien équipée avec table et chaises de jardin, 6 transats, des sièges permanents garnis de coussins (c’est assez récent ne sont donc pas sur les photos,) 2 fauteuils supplémentaires et un barbecue. Les grandes baies vitrées de la cuisine et du séjour s’ouvrent totalement. Vous avez alors les pièces de vie complètement ouvertes sur la terrasse et la piscine (tout simplement géniale !).
La voiture ne reste pas sur la route, vous savez facilement garer 2 à 3 voitures dans l’allée de la maison.
Les plages de Sant Antoni de Calonge sont à +/-4-5km de la villa, celles de Palamos à +/- 7km et celles de Platja d’Aro à +/- 7-8km.
Vous pouvez aussi allez voir les plages de Palafrugell avec ses petites ruelles et ses restaurants (superbe !)
Nous avons découvert un super restaurant loin de l’agitation, dans un endroit typique et rustique avec une cuisine actuelle, savoureuse, aux influences françaises, le restaurant Can Roquet à Romanyà de la Selva (repris au Guide Michelin) à +/-10km de la villa. Allez-y ! Vous ne serez pas déçu !
Pour les repas plus simples et à emporter, vous pouvez aller à la rôtisserie au rond-point en face du Lidl à Sant Antoni de Calonge. Poulet rôti et paella excellents ! (paella sur commande).
Nous avons vraiment passé un super séjour dans cette belle villa et c’est avec plaisir que ne reviendrons.

Erholsame Ruhe in modernem Ambiente

  • 5 of 5
Wir haben hier 2 wunderschöne erholsame Wochen verbracht. Das Haus ist modern und lichtdurchflutet. Ansprechend wirkt der offene Wohnbereich mit einer schönen Küche, ausgestattet mit Waschmiaschine, Trockner, Spülmaschine, Ceranfeld, Backofen und Mikrowelle, sowie eingebautem Kaffeevollautomaten. Durch die großen komplett zu öffnenden Glastüren kommt man direkt zum Pool oder aber auf die Terrasse, die genügend Sitzgelegenheiten, auch für 6 Personen bietet. Das Schlafzimmer im oberen Stockwerk ist ausreichend groß mit einem Bad en Suite.Man hat sowohl vom Balkon als auch von der großen Terrasse und vom Pool aus einen fantastischen Ausblick auf die Bucht von Palamos und die angrenzende Umgebung.
Von Imma und ihrem Mann Frank, die beide gut deutsch sprechen wurden wir gut eingewiesen und betreut.
Gerne verbringen wir einen weiteren Urlaub hier.
