Calonge Villa Rental Photos and Description
3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms (2 en-suite), sleeps 6 people
The villa is on a hillside facing south with lovely views over the surrounding country side. It is situated on the Viscondado de Cabanyes urbanization, a development of secluded detached villas outside the medieval village of Calonge. The villa accommodates 6 adults and is perfect for a relaxing holiday, however there is easy access to many sporting activities and nightlife for the more energetic. Satellite TV, DVD and CD/Radio stereo system are available in the large lounge/dining room. Wi-Fi available on request.
The separate kitchen is well equipped and has a dishwasher. Immediately outside is a covered patio with table and chairs for outside dining and down a couple of steps is the private and secluded swimming pool. In the separate garden area behind the house there is a boule (petanque) court, and seating area. Upstairs two of the twin bedded rooms are en-suite and have balconies and the third has easy access to the shower room. Beach and pool equipment is provided including towels and seating.
Local area: The villa is set in woodland as part of an urbanization. There are views of the coast on a clear day (3 miles away) and lovely views over the surrounding forests.
There is much to do and see. Exploring by car or on foot is rewarding.
The local towns are all full of character and interest. Nearby Calonge, Palamos and Platja D’Aro are well worth a walk. The harbour in Palamos is where the trawlers deliver their goods. Slightly further a field are towns such as Parafugell, Begur, Pals, La Bisbal and St Feliu.
There are many coves and bays that can be reached by car, but in some cases on foot that offer spectacular views. For a day out Figures (home of Salvador Dali) and Vic are worth visiting, not to mention Girona itself and of course Barcelona. Remember to allow time for visiting before everything closes for lunch/siesta at 1pm. (Normally re-opens at 4pm but can vary). The local town of Palamos is where you can get buses to many of these places if you don't want to drive.
Golf: There are many splendid and reasonably priced golf clubs in the area.
Activities: There are water parks for the younger folks and a variety of water sports and boat trips are available.
There are various tennis centres locally.
There are many walks to suit all levels of fitness, details of some can be found in the Villa folder. The coastal walks can be challenging but very rewarding, and it is unusual to go very far without the possibility of refreshment. There are also many cycle paths on and off road, by riverside or across country.
