From our GUEST BOOK : Good morning Mr. Harrison,I wanted to drop you a quick note to say that we enjoyed our visit to Spain and your home was lovely! Also, the ladies at the rental office were very nice and helpful. Thanks again, Pam Lake.

Jonathan. Just a quick note to let you know we have just returned from Spain and have had a excellent time. Although the weather hasn't been great the villa was a real home from home, in a fantastic location and with all the amenities we needed. The children made full use of the pool and the fact that it was indoors meant we were all able to use it even when it wasn't sunny. Best wishes Craig.

Hello Brett, Thank you for all the directions - they were spot on. We had a very enjoyable time in Catalunya. The villa was just what we wanted. Oh for a palm tree and such solitude and views. We thought the pool was excellent with the overhead balcony. I found a very compulsive read in your extensive library & We found Al Vent very helpful. Sue and Keith

Eating : There are plenty of excellent opportunities for wining and dining. From Monday to Friday it is possible to have a good midday meal for 9 to 15 Euros, this is generally a three course meal ( often 3 different choices for each course ) and sometimes includes not only bread, but water,wine and coffee too. Midday meals are from 13.00 h. untill 15.30 h. and evening dining begins at 20.00 h. Many restaurants are non-smoking, but one has to check at the door. Palamos has a variety of very good restaurants,bars and tapas bars (Moni 's tapas-bar!! )

Also along the sea front at Sant Antonio there is a good selection of restaurants where one can sit outside; even an Irish pub for those who miss their Guinness. Playa d'Aro also has some good restaurants, as well as the usual fast food: pizza and burgers etc.

Shopping - eating at home:- there is a good super market in Calonge and others are 1 to 2 kms further down the road; there are also daily markets, which rotate from town to town.

Places of interest: The charming picturesque fishing villages of LLAFRANC, CALELLA,TAMARIU are lovely and also enjoy a variety of excellent restaurants: the fantastic views from the lighthouse above Llafranc at Cap de Sant Sebastian,where one can dine at the El Far Hotel high above the sea: are all not to be missed. PALS is a superbly preserved and reconstructed medieval village, very pretty, and best visited early in the morning before everyone else arrives. LA BISBAL - best known for its Catalan ceramics industry (there are dozens of shops), PALAFRUGEL, BEGUR, SANT FELIU are all worth a visit. Further afield, the Dali museum at FIGUERES, the Dali house at Port Lligat near CADAQUES ( one has to book a time ,Tel.972 25 83 15) and the small castle where Dali's wife Gala lived at PUBOL on the way to Girona, are all very interesting. Girona itself also has alot to offer, with many different shops, a cathedral and an interesting old town. In the summer there are music festivals at PERELADA and at Cap Roig.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Sehr geehrter Herr Harrison,

 

es war sehr schön in Ihrem Haus! Der Familie hat alles sehr, sehr gut gefallen! Wir haben so viel mit dem tollen Ausblick und dem schönen Pool zu tun gehabt, dass wir viele andere Sachen kaum nutzen konnten. Tischtennis war gar nicht, auch wegen des Windes. Die Wii hab nur ich einmal zum Golfen ausprobiert, die Batterien in den Controlern sind alle und man muss die Batterien aus der Fernbedienung etwa des Fernsehers einsetzen! Alles schön und für uns eine ganz tolle Erfahrung. Nochmals Danke!

 

Wir überlegen gerade, ob wir in den Herbstferien die Sache nochmal wiederholen sollen. Wir würden aber fliegen wollen. Wenn das alles zu machen ist, melde ich mich wieder bei Ihnen!

 

Bis dann und herzliche Grüße aus Berlin,

M.M.

Beautiful villa with stunning views

  • 5 of 5
We love this villa and have stayed there several times. It is a real 'home from home', comfortable, clean, spacious and well equipped. The larger than average indoor pool is perfect for families, providing sun protection throughout the day. The garden is pretty and well maintained with interesting flowers at different times of the year. Three generations of our family, including a toddler, enjoyed this year's holiday; there is enough space and privacy for everyone. Nearby Calonge is a delightful Mediaeval village and Sant Antoni on the coast is a great family resort, friendly and not too crowded.

Have just returned from a wonderful week in Casa Candia. The description given was both detailed and accurate. The owner was very helpful and efficient throughout the whole process of enquiry to returning the bond after the holiday.
The instructions from Barcelona airport to the agents office were extremely clean. The agents were really friendly and helpful, and drove us to the villa from their office.
The property was very spacious and clean. It was extremely well maintained. There were lots of home essentials and comforts which made a difference to the stay. We absolutely loved the fact that the pool was indoors as it meant we didn't have to fish out any bugs! Apart from swimming in the pool and soaking up the sunshine in the beautiful garden, there was plenty to do inside such as the Wii and British TV! Would definitely recommend this property.
There are plenty of supermarkets around and we managed to get almost everything we needed (was difficult for the vegetarians in our party!).
We loved Sant Antoni, the beach, restaurants and shops were great. We also loved the beach at Tossa De Mar. We went to Girona which has a beautiful Cathederal and lots of shops. We loved the little town of Peratallada with its little winding streets and shops. There was much more to do and see but we couldn't do it all in a week! Fantastic holiday, highly recommended.

Einfach nur toll: Urlaubsfeeling von Anfang an

Wir verbrachten mit 5 Personen ( 3 Erwachsene / 2 Kinder ) 2 wunderschöne Wochen in Casa Candia über Ostern 2012. Die Anmietung über den Vermieter war reibungslos. Auf Anfrage erteilte er sogar noch nützliche Tipps für Unternehmungen in die Umgebung. Auch die Schlüsselübergabe vor Ort war kein Problem
Die Lage des Hauses zeichnet sich aus durch einen tollen Blick über Calonge und Palamos bis hin zum Meer. Die Auffahrt zum Haus ist etwas steil, lässt sich jedoch auch mit größeren PKW ´s gut bewerkstelligen. Trotz Hanglage gibt es auf dem Grundstück sehr viel Platz: zum Relaxen, Tischtennis spielen und Sonnenbaden.
Das Haus ist auch innen sehr geräumig, sauber und gepflegt sowie gut ausgestattet. Jedes Schlafzimmer hat einen eigenen Balkon mit herrlichem Ausblick. Das Elternschlafzimmer verfügt über ein Bad en suite und eine riesige Terrasse auf dem Poolhaus: eine Einladung zum morgendlichen Kaffee bei Sonnenaufgang, wenn der Rest der „Bande“ noch schläft.
Der beheizte und sehr gepflegte Pool ist ein Highlight und hat den Vorteil, dass er auch bei Regen oder kühleren Tagen zu jeder Tages- und Nachtzeit uneingeschränkt benutzt werden kann.
Insgesamt ein toller Aufenthalt mit hohem Erholungseffekt sowohl bei den Kindern als auch den Erwachsenen.

Nice "Home away from Home", perfect for families !

Nice "Home away from Home", perfect for families !
  • 4 of 5
We had a wonderful, very quit time at this house, which we called "home" for a week at end of June 2012.
Everything we used and saw was like on the pictures shown at HomeAway.co.uk.
The Internet (wifi) was fast enough, the TV had many programmes in many languages, the kitchen had everything you need and the garden was a dream in our eyes. Not too stylish, kind of wild and old, nevertheless well kept and trimmed, what we personally liked a lot.
The best part was the view direction Palamos, Calonge and the MedSea. Fantastic being nearly on top of the mountain.....!!!
Many deckchairs and a big dining table outside, near the pool, which was too cold for us, because nearly no sun came into the covered poolroom (no matter if doors closed or open), but that was secondary.
What we also liked was the tabletennis table in the garage. We had a lot of fun, even there was no chance to play outside, it was simply too windy.
As we needed our rest a lot, we cannot tell future guests about restaurants or activities in Sant Antoni de Calonge, Palamos or Calonge. We had light lunch at "home", in the evening we drove to Platja d'Aro, because we liked it a lot and knew some restaurants from former visits.
For tennis lovers: the is a little club on the main street direction Sant Antoni, good conditions, good prices, a lot of fun.
Shopping (food) is easy to find, ALDI, LIDL+++++, fresh and tasty....
We would like to mention that it was really easy to handle everything with the owner, he answered every question and as well AlVent (where you get directions and keys) worked out well, very nice people, very easy everything.
We would definitely recommend this house ! Thanks a lot :)

Wundervolle Ferienwoche

  • 5 of 5
Wir haben eine wundervolle Woche im Ferienhaus Casa Candia verbracht.

Das Haus ist wirklich super, hat einen sehr schönen Ausblick und das Schwimmbad ist hervorragend.
Es war sicher die schönste Ferien-Villa, die wir jemals gemietet haben.

Leider war die Woche schnell vorbei, aber vielleicht können wir irgendwann wieder nach Calonge fahren.

WHAT MORE COULD YOU WANT?

  • 5 of 5
Jonathan Brett Harrison's house was a perfect getaway for our week minding Ann's grandson and step-granddaughter during the first ever Catalonia school half-term. We took videos galore for the youngster and the Wifi was invaluable for the homework research - and the heated indoor pool a tremendous asset for the whole family. A tremendously warm and practical house and very friendly agents (Al Vent) to show you around on arrival. There is also a very large library for those who just want to hang out and not do much. February and early March during the week rather restricts the choices of restaurants but there is a great Wok place in Sant Antoni opposite the Al Vent office which is incredible value and a big choice of foods to suit all tastes.
It's within easy reach of Girona airport (about 40 minutes away) and there are many interesting historical sites including some dolmen in Sant Antoni itself. Roman ruins on the coast are about an hour away and the Dali Museum in Figueres just over an hour. However, the Dali house on the coast is probably a more satisfactory day's excursion.
All in all highly recommended.

Vizcondado de Cabanyes is a private urbanisation set in the beautiful evergreen Gavarres hills, which lie between the old fishing town of Palamos and the seaside resort Playa d'Aro. Cabanyes is about 4 kms inland from Sant Antonio, near the medieval village of Calonge.The nearest shops are in Calonge 2kms. Nearest beach is at Sant Antonio. The nearest airports are Girona / Ryanair,Barcelona / Easyjet, & Perpignan. The coastline varies from picturesque secluded coves to long stretches of clean sandy beach.There are many good restaurants, and there are plenty of things to do, all kinds of sporting activities, and many interesting towns and villages to visit. In the summer there are various music festivals, and Barcelona is also only a one and half hour's drive. There is a very good tourist office in Sant Antonio on the main road opposite our agent.

Otherwise just relax at home, in front of the pool or on the terrace, enjoy a glass of Cava (Spanish Champagne ) and admire the view.

Other Activities: motorboat, go-carting, mini-golf, crazy-golf, jetskiing, waterpark with waterslides, snorkling.
