San Feliu de Guixols Villa Rental Photos and Description
3/4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, AC, Wifi, and easy access to enormous communal pool
At Maremar we have the best of all worlds - luxury, space, modernity, comfort, relative peace, enormous pool but with easy access to the shops, the beach and the rest of the Costa Brava, including the three major Salvador Dali buildings - his house, Gala's 'castle' and the Dali Museum itself.
Our beautiful, very spacious, house is set in a discreet development next to beautiful pine woods and directly overlooks the sea.
It is one of the largest houses in the development, with living accommodation arranged over three storeys and is of a high quality specification and design. It accommodates up to six people very comfortably indeed. We limit occupancy to six deliberately as we want to keep Maremar beautiful for guests.
You will also be thirty seconds from the enormous shared swimming pool, set in landscaped gardens, with all its delights.
The house boasts a very spacious living room with two three-seater sofas, dining area and full width glass doors leading out onto the large terrace and private gardens with their fabulous views along the coast of the Mediterranean and out to sea.
There are dining tables accommodating six people comfortably both inside and out, although you will doubtless want to spend most of your time outside.
The American kitchen is modern and well equipped. It is especially good for convivial gatherings as the cook is not excluded from what is going on in the living room and beyond. We love to cook and have equipped the kitchen accordingly.
We have three double bedrooms...
The master bedroom is very large (the full width of the front of the house), with balconies overlooking the sea, the front gardens and the pine woods, and a luxurious en suite bathroom in travertine and marble.
The second, to the rear of the house, overlooks the landscaped gardens and the woods.
The optional 'rooftop penthouse' double bedroom up on the second floor is virtually as spacious as the master bedroom and has direct access to the rooftop solarium, also looking out to sea. You can choose whether to use this as a bedroom, as another sitting room or, heaven forbid, an office!
Finally, we have a twin bedroom, overlooking the gardens with two single beds.
This means that the accommodation can be configured to the needs of any six people. So as to maintain the quality of this property, occupancy is strictly limited to six people.
All bedrooms have luxury mattresses, duvets and linens that we like to use ourselves.
The family bathroom has a bath and shower and there is also a separate downstairs shower room. We believe in 'fluffly' towels and have kitted out the bathrooms accordingly (but please do not use them on the beach!)
As mentioned earlier, on the second floor, there is a private solarium where you can sunbathe in seclusion, looking out to sea from time to time and saying hello to the seagulls as they go by. The solarium is off a large space which can either be configured as the 'penthouse' bedroom or as a large chill out area.
We have equipped the house for our own use. This means that we use high quality fixtures and fittings such as Bosch, Miele, Hansgrohe, Phillipe Starck etc. All rooms have been individually styled with solid oak flooring and high spec tiling etc.
We have two lawned areas, one directly off the terrace and another down some steps, past the ancient olive tree at ground level. So you are spoilt for choice of aspect when it comes to sea and coastal views. At the rear there is a wide gated drive which will take two cars easily. It is flanked by borders containing native flowers, bushes and small trees such as an almond, a fig and a tall cypress (the Catalan symbol of welcome).
The communal pool is about 50 metres from the house and is about 20m long and six to eight metres wide (it is an unusual shape!). It is in lovely landscaped gardens with lawns (for sun bathing after a dip) and conifers.
We have a 'pool box' which contains beach towels and various pool toys/games which you are welcome to use. If you like to SWIM rather than just splash about in a tiny pool, then this is the place for you! There is also a paddling area to one side of it for tiny tots.
Sant Feliu de Guixols is a mere 5 minute drive away or 15 minute stroll through the woods or along the coast road. In the summer months there is also a tourist 'train' which travels along the coast and up to the house, so you can easily get a lift down to the beach or the shops!
We have had guests who have decided to base themselves completely at the house, sun bathing, swimming and taking the occasional stroll into town, with the most exciting thing they have done being the walk down some pretty precarious steps to the bottom of the cliff and the beautiful cove below.
But if you are more adventurous there are many more things to do and see than you can cram into two or three weeks. You never have to stop!
We are resisting cluttering up the living area with TV etc. But our high speed Wifi access means you can stream whatever entertainment you wish to your own devices. And the Bose stereo system plus books and games available have been all that we have needed for a real chill out.
The place is beautiful off season too, bringing other charms to bear such as the wild sea, the complete peace and the chance to use the fireplace in the living room. Sant Feliu's strapline is 'open all year round' and this is absolutely true with, for example, Carnival taking place in February.
In April you can hunt wild asparagus in the woods and late summer is the time for a wild variety of mushrooms.
We love coming to Maremar ourselves. There is really not much more we can say! So if you want a luxury holiday rental in the Costa Brava, look at Maremar!

Lucy Noble purchased this villa in 2003
Why Lucy Noble chose San Feliu de Guixols
This luxury vacation rental on the Costa Brava, provides a luxurious, comfortable experience rather than a cramped one, giving you the very best of both worlds for a beach holiday. Sant Feliu, the town, the life and the beach are a very short distance away. But our house is in an oasis of relative calm and tranquility.
Our guests say that what they love about Maremar are the details - comfortable mattresses with luxury mattress covers, real pillows and not just one each, basic foodstuffs already there so you don't have to go out and buy loo rolls, tea and coffee as soon as you arrive! We have modern, high spec appliances, coffee maker etc so that you can equally stay at home in the evening or go out into town.
We stay here ourselves with friends so you won't be presented with just six of everything by way of cutlery, virtually no kitchen implements and the odd beer glass. Spoil yourselves a little!
You have clean sands, rocks with crystal clear waters, cork woods, pine woods, wild asparagus, posh shops all in one small area.
You can stay put or wander around seeking Art, history, architecture, nightlife, cuisine or whatever takes your fancy.
We come here for our holidays and want to share the experience with like minded people who want a little more luxury from a seaside rental.
What makes this villa unique
Much more space, comfort and facilities than most other similar properties - or at least that is what our guests have been saying!
Access to the guest only areas of our website which tell you what's on and where and also gives you lots of tips and ideas for things to experience, see, try and taste.
Being self employed, we always used to work from here. So the Wifi is reliable and the top floor can be used as the most charming, out of the way, office if you have to work! But it's also great for meditation, yoga, or just chilling out.
High specification decor and facilities.
Unparalleled, uninterrupted views of the sea and the length of the coast.
Very large pool - excellent for people who want exercise and space rather than a place to splash about in.
All the benefits of a beach holiday without many of the drawbacks, noise, cramped surroundings, discomfort!
With Sant Feliu de Guixols you have a real, authentic Catalan town and we can help you make the most of it. This is not a 'holiday resort' with all the attendant noise, bad behaviour and tourist traps. Many guests comment on how great it is to have a real Catalan experience but in a place where foreign guests are understood and welcomed.
