Calonge Villa Rental Photos and Description
...and please also see the descriptions provided by our guests in their reviews.
We know you have lots of excellent villas to choose from, so this initial paragraph describes only the particular features which we believe are unique to our villa. Hopefully, if these features are important to you, then our villa may be worthy of your further consideration.
Naturally, the villa has all the usual luxury and excellent features and facilities you have the right to expect, but what makes our villa different is:
---FIRSTLY, that none of the terrace, BBQ, or pool areas, are overlooked, nor do they overlook any other properties.
---SECONDLY, there are no other properties in front of the villa, nor immediately to the right, or the left, of the villa. There's a good restaurant, and a villa to the rear, but they don't affect our privacy.
---THIRDLY, there is a short, flat walk into the village (please note that a short part of the road has no footpath).
---And FINALLY, there are uninterrupted views of an unblemished wooded hillside across the valley opposite the villa.
Do have a quick look through the reviews provided by our previous guests - we are very proud to have received so many positive recommendations from so many people - and we hope you will find their views and comments helpful and reassuring.
HELP and ADVICE 'before' your holiday....
We have been on villa holidays ourselves for many years, and we know how important it is to make sure that you select the right villa, and the right area, for your holiday. So, we provide an extra service, whereby we undertake to provide as much extra information as our guests request.
So, if you would like any further information at all, we will be very happy to help - maybe with more information about the villa itself, if that would be helpful?
Or, perhaps, email you some more photos so that you can get a really clear picture of the villa and gardens?
Or perhaps provide information about flights, airports, hire cars, place to visit, relevant websites, etc.,
Anyway, if you think we can help with anything at all, please don't hesitate to contact us - without, of course, any obligation at all on your part:
HELP and ADVICE 'during' your holiday....
We will of course, provide you with clear directions to the villa from whatever airport you choose and, if you wish, we will arrange to have our excellent and friendly agents, Jim & Samantha, meet you when you arrive, show you around the villa, and also demonstrate how everything works. They live closeby and will also be very happy to help you out with any problems, questions, or queries, you might have during your stay. They will, of course, also respect your privacy during your stay. There is no charge for this service.
We hope that providing this kind of help, advice and support, before and during your holiday, will provide you with the peace of mind required to ensure that you have a very enjoyable and memorable holiday.
*Restaurants: - Two very good restaurants 'La Jovita' and 'Can Tia' are literally five minutes flat walk from the villa (but please note that a short part of the road has no footpath and great care need to be taken - it would not be suitable for taking young children or pushchairs.). The four-star restaurant 'La Figuera', is situated on the hill just behind the villa, a few minutes away by car. There are, of course, many other excellent restaurants within close driving distance
*Supermarkets:- There are two excellent, large supermarkets in the village 'Spar', and 'Suma' both within 5 minutes drive
*Golf: - There are 8 excellent golf courses within easy reach of the villa. If golf is something you're particularly interested in, we can provide you with all the comprehensive course websites.
*Other Facilities: - The village also has all the normal butcher and baker shops, banks, a rotisserie, pharmacy, medical centre, internet cafe, and a very good weekly street market. The nearby active local fishing port of Palamos sells fresh fish.
Thanks for considering us and, whether you decide to choose our villa or not, we hope you have a really great holiday in this lovely part of the world.

About Doug and Barbara
We are a couple in our late fifties, have been married for 35 years, (where did it go!), with two sons who have now left home, and we think ourselves very lucky indeed to own such a beautiful villa in such a beautiful part of the world.
Before building our villa in Calonge six years ago, we knew that we wanted our villa to be in a location:- where we could walk into the local village - which was not overlooked - was on a large, flat plot - was south-facing - and which had lovely uninterrupted views!
It was a very tall order and we had to spend many years waiting for exactly the right location to become available but, in the end, the exclusive development of 'Puig Rosell', became available, and we were lucky enough to be on the spot to snap up exactly the location we had always dreamed of.
We have only ever advertised our villa on the trusted 'Homeaway' and 'Owners Direct' websites, and their European arms so, to guarantee that you will be dealing directly and securely with us, please only use the links directly from these websites.
And we strongly recommend that you give us a telephone call early in your enquiry, as this will provide us all with the confidence and assurance that we need when making financial and other arrangements together.
So please don't hesitate to contact us on 0034 690 377 281 - (and we will call you straight back if you would prefer).
Doug and Barbara purchased this villa in 2007
Why Doug and Barbara chose Calonge
For us, the villa and it's location was perfect in every way - and after many years of research, it was exactly what we knew we had always wanted, and had been waiting literally 10 years to find!
We, (and, thankfully, all our guests over the last 6 years), believe that our villa has the unique qualities and attributes which makes it stand out from all the excellent villas you have to choose from...
...and, having had many years of family villa holidays ourselves, we are really happy to be able to offer our villa, and our help and advice, to all prospective guests - in the belief that everyone who has their holidays at Casa Oriol will have a really wonderful and memorable holiday - just as we have always done..

Guestbook comments from the owner
Casa Oriol is an oasis of calm and tranquility. The photos only allow a glimpse of what the villa really has to offer - we are delighted to have had the opportunity to stay.
The villa is a credit to Doug & Barbara - right from the moment we arrived, we knew we had made the right choice for our holiday on the Costa Brava. Immaculate, well equipped, clean, and with extras we have never had at villas we have stayed at before.
The pool and gardens were outstanding and were a particilar favourite of our 3 year old, who spent so much time wandering around the many hidden paths and exploring the areas, finding snails, stick insects, lizards, and much more !
The weather was spectacular except for two dull days, and the children visited the very handy park area next door.
We walked into Calonge, visited Sant Antoni beach, Platja D'Aro, Palafrugell, LLafranc and Begur, all equally good.
We can't speak highly enough of Doug & Barbara, and Casa Oriol.
