Very impressed with this beautifully situated, light and airy villa. I was met on arrival by a lady who looks after the villa and she was most helpful in explaining how appliances worked etc, very friendly too. The villa itself is set on the side of a hill, within the Gavarres and the views from the lounge and bedrooms are amazing. The pictures do not do the villa justice. There are so many terraces and in fact, each bedroom has its own. The lounge terrace was my favourite, offering great views over the trees and beyond, and was a wonderfully tranquil place to sit of an evening.
As the advert suggests, the bedrooms are indeed positioned enough away from each other to offer privacy. Each has its own en suite bathroom too. The lounge is large and equipped with comfortable seating . The kitchen is well equipped with all you could need too. There is an abundance of outdoor seating, cushions and parasols. On arrival, I found the villa was spotlessly clean too.
The villa is situated only a couple of miles from Calonge and a few miles from the beaches of Sant Antoni. Further along both ways are an abundance of delightful coves and coastal walks, perfect for walking. In fact as an enthusiastic hiker, I have to say this area is fantastic, a real network of trails offering mountain, coastal, woodland and river walks. My favourite beach is Castell, just after Palamos. Beautifully wild with coastal paths heading in both directions.
A nearby restaurant that I would recommend is Rio d'Oro, with beautiful gardens and an unsually designed interior. Sant Joan cafe in Palamos on the sea front makes the best hot chocolate. Oh, and there is a wonderful deli on the Palamos road heading towards Palafrugel. The market in Calonge on Thursday has superb fruit, veg and deli, which is considerably cheaper than the supermarket.
The owner provides excellent customer service and ensured I had Internet working given that I was working whilst on hoilday.
Having stayed in Calonge one a few occasions at various different villas, this one is definitely my favourite and I shall most certainly be returning.

Owner's Response: I feel this client has captured the essence of the place which is why we built the house in this area. She has already booked another stay and enquired for future out of season stays which we hopefully will be able to accommodate.
