LUXURY VILLA WITH LARGE POOL AND GARDENS AND GREAT VIEWS NEAR GIRONA, BARCELONA

Santa Cristina de Aro Villa Rental Photos and Description

Self catering rental 4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, sleeps 8, near beach

We fell in love with this location, on a quiet hillside with extensive wooded views and the sea in the distance. Bell Lloc, situated midway between the hamlet of Romanyà and the village of Santa Cristina d'Aro, the proximity to a good choice of restaurants and several 18 hole golf courses, the beach at S'Agaró being only 10 mins away. Girona Airport is 20 mins drive and Barcelona is reached in just over an hour's drive.

We had the house built to our design, with a feeling of light and space exuding from the airy living room and well fitted kitchen at one end, whilst the large windows open onto a wrap around terrace overlooking the large swimming pool and ample garden beyond. The furnishings have been carefully chosen to be comfortable but yet practical for family use, and with 2 bedrooms and a bathroom at each side of the house, sharing families or groups of friends will retain their privacy.

Ideal for summer holiday rental and also for touring Barcelona, Girona and Costa Brava

Guest Comments: James,

I would like to thank you for giving me, my family and friends the best holiday. Your villa was fantastic and really made our holiday special. The accommodation was perfect, it was truly a home from home, the furnishings and fittings were first class and there was more than enough crockery for the 8 of us. The pool also was large enough for all of us and our inflatables! Another great asset is that it was perfect for 2 separate families as it gave each of us privacy and space. It was these wee touches that has made you villa different from any other.

I would be interested to know if you have any other villas elsewhere and i will certainly recommend this villa to me friends and work colleagues. I hopefully will also be fortunate enough to visit this one again.

Thanks once again.

Gaynor

Guest Comments: James,

Sorry I haven't replied earlier, had a fantastic holiday in a fantastic villa, and I've recommended it to friends and family.

Hi James.

The weather was fantastic and it was a little surreal watching the news reports about the floods and rain back here in the UK. It kind of made us enjoy the holiday that much more.

We had a wonderful time at your villa. I will also be recommending your villa to my friends & colleagues etc.

Anyway, thanks for everything and all the best.

Adios!

Nic (June 2007)

Dear James,

we have just got back having had a wonderful time at your villa in Spain.

The Villa was spotless on arrival and the food pack was welcome as we arrived to late to get to the shops.

Thank you

David Shotton

James

Just to thank you for a great villa. We have a fantastic time and would definitely consider it for another holiday. Everything was fine and we didn't break anything.

Regards

John

Guest Comments: Hi James

Your villa was a dream, for the 1st time ever we did not want to return home after a holiday, the only downside of our stay was having to close the gate for the gate for the last time.

It is a really homely villa, we felt we could relax and still respect your property without worrying, it was clean, spacious and well fitted - what am I talking about that's nothing like home!!

we did venture to the top of the hill and had tapas in the closer of the 2 restaurants, new waiter and very friendly with an excellent command of English (and about 3 other languages as well- put us to shame).

we went to Barcelona 1 day, parked the car at the station and caught the train in, only about 20 euros each and free parking for the day, and we got off right in the centre of the city- very good as parking was about 15 euros for the day, even if we had a mind to travel the minefield of the roads and find a space, so that was a great tip that you passed on.

Chris & Sue

COMMENTS FROM OWNER GUESTBOOK

We had a lovely time and apart from Friday (which was overcast) the weather was amazing. We thought the Villa was beautiful, garden ideal and the location perfect’ - Jenny Hamilton

‘We enjoyed our stay at your peaceful villa. We did the short coastal walk that you suggested which was excellent. There are other good coastal walks too. The trip to Girona was excellent as well’ - Colin Cawley

we had a fantastic holiday thank you. Your house is truly lovely and we had a great time. The only comment I would make is that your description on the Owners Direct website does not do the property justice as we all commented on how it was much better than what we were expecting.

Jackie was very nice and helpful too.

I'm sure I will be in contact with you again early next year and I would not hesitate to recommend you to friends and family.

Thanks

David

FANTASTIC HOLIDAY!

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic holiday - the house was lovely, the garden amazing, and the pool perfect. Our kids (ages 4 and 7) loved the pool and the slide and we lived in the garden and on the terraces all week. We dragged ourselves away on 2 occasions to visit La Fosca and Plaja d'Aro beaches which were both lovely, but all the kids wanted to do was get back to the pool and garden! The house, pool and garden were immaculately clean and well kept, the house had all the amenities you could wish for, there were some outdoor games and sports equipment, and some pool toys. The local markets and supermarket provided everything we needed, and the supermarket also has a camping/beach/pool section upstairs now which was very good for cheap beach and pool equipment. A car is essential as there is very little within walking distance in terms of shops or transport or amenities (the communal pool and tennis courts are now closed I think). All in all a great holiday was had by all, and we will definitely try to return to this lovely house! Thanks very much.

SUPER VILLA, FANTASTIC POOL, GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
This is a superb villa in a lovely quiet residential area just 5 mins from Santa Christina and a 25 minute drive from Girona airport. It's just a couple minutes from the dual carriageway so you have great access to beaches, coves and resorts in this lovely part of the Costa Brava. Like other reviews, we agree the photos do not do the property justice. Bedrooms are all spacious and nicely furnished and the kitchen is well equipped with everything you’d need. But the jewel of this villa is the great pool and garden. You are not overlooked and the gardens and terrace wrap around the villa so there is always sun or shade depending on what you want. The pool wouldn’t be out of place in a small hotel, the slide is great fun and plenty of sunbeds and parasols. We visited at the end of June and didn’t need the pool heated as it is in full sun and the water felt very pleasant. The main balcony overlooking the pool has a great bbq which we used pretty much every night.
Good communicatios with owner via emails and phone, responded to questions and gave useful advice and suggestions. Emailed a few days before we left just confirming everything was ready for us - a nice touch. Would definitely recomend the villa to friends and family.

WONDERFUL VILLA I'M SURE WE'LL BE BACK!!!!

Wonderful Villa I'm sure we'll be back!!!!
  • 5 of 5
I’m not sure where to start - the villa was absolutely wonderful (or perfect) take your pick. I would just echo one of the other reviews by saying the pictures don’t do it justice.

We arrived late in the evening having being delayed at the airport and the arrangement for the keys (they were available from a secure location) made this much less stressful than worrying about someone having to wait around for us. Davina who takes care of the villa (and she obviously does this so well) came to check that we’d settled in and that everything was OK the next day and this was also a nice touch.

My nephews went into the villa first and their comments sum up the holiday/villa “It’s like somewhere you’d live if you were famous” and that was before they found the nearby tennis courts which they could use.

The villa itself was absolutely immaculate, spotlessly clean, well decorated and obviously well cared for. It was also extremely well equipped and we had everything we needed.

The balcony in the picture was perfectly placed for keeping an eye on the kids whilst they were in the pool - which was almost every morning. But probably best of all (for me at least) was that it was perfectly positioned for capturing the early morning sun – an ideal place for me to enjoy a nice quiet breakfast/coffee.

The pool itself was one of the best maintained/cleanest we’ve ever come across and was checked and cleaned regularly in the 10 days we were there. The gardens were also well kept and big and flat enough for the kids to be able to play ball games.

The weather on the first day was torrential thunderstorms (it was luckily glorious the rest of the time) so I can also say that the centrally heating was powerful enough to keep the villa really cosy. The heating is unlike most villas in the area “proper” radiators like home and it was easy to adjust so would be well suited to a “winter” holiday.

The location of the villa was ideal – secluded but close enough to beaches/resorts so that we could spend the morning in the pool and then explore in the afternoon/evenings. The supermarkets were also close enough and convenient so getting to them wasn’t a major job (handy when the ice cream ran out!!).

Would I recommend the villa – absolutely and without hesitation – I just hope that when we next want to book it someone else hasn’t read the review and got there before us. Because finding somewhere else that lives up to this villa will be no easy task!!!
