5 bedrooms, 4 twins +1 bunk bed. Sleeps 10. South facing pool, stunning views.

Ideal for family or golf group (8 golf courses within 40 min drive).

Situated in the foothills of the Gavarres, with tranquil views overlooking wooded, green belt valley and famous Mas Nou golf course beyond. Views of Palamos Bay from 1st floor balcony, ideal for sun-bathing whilst keeping discreet watch on kids in pool! Outside dining area with BBQ. Large pool with two terraces, large garden, completely fenced, part wild, small lawn, ideal for toddlers/pets. Further shaded terrace below pool. The pool benefits from sun all day in summer and is not overlooked. Almost all windows have external shutters to keep house cool, and there is ceiling fan in living room.

Daily markets at local towns and excellent shops and restaurants.

For the Golfers: There are 8 excellent championship courses and two par3 courses within 40 mins drive of the property.The famous Mas Nou golf course ,with its incredible views, lies at the top of the mountain directly opposite the villa. Don't assume that a low handicap ensures you wont loose a few balls!!! For the less adventurous there are 7 other golf courses at normal altitude! A visit to the ever improving and expanding Empordar golf complex is essential.

Sea food and walking and Wine Tasting: There is a fish museum in Palamos and it is next to the fish market. You can witness the fishing boats returning from the sea around 4pm. and you can buy their fresh fish at the fish market. It really makes a great BBQ!

The property is within walking distance of several well marked long and short distance footpaths through wooded hills and along the coast. Local vineyards on some of these footpaths offer wine tasting and purchasing from their cellars.

General information: The villa, with its own swimming pool, is situated in the hills of The Gavarres and overlooks a wooded green belt valley .

The nearest beach is at St Antoni, just 10 minutes drive away from the house. There are many water sports, games to offer and many nice restaurants, bars and cafes for you to enjoy during your holiday.

Tennis courts, a fantastic Water (Aqua) Park, together with Go carts, and Quad biking just 5 minutes drive from the house.

Outside dining area and a fantastic swimming pool for summer use, make for a perfect relaxing holiday. Vizcondado de Cabanyes is close to good road and rail links to Barcelona (1¼ hours), Girona (35 min) and Perpignan (1¼ hours) or just 10 minutes from excellent beaches and coves at St Antoni de Calonge, Palamos, and Playa d’Aro.

About Terry Osborne

Semi-retired Chartered Surveyor, living in Surrey but commuting to London once per week to help run the family business.

Terry Osborne purchased this villa in 2000

Why Terry Osborne chose Calonge

When i went to the Vizcondado development in 1999 i was fortunate to have a large choice of plots,built houses or houses under construction.

I choose this plot as i was able to slightly amend the design. I re-orientated the master bedroom, so that on opening the shutter doors to the terrace it is possible to watch the sun rise over the bay of Palamos whilst sitting in bed; i also provided en-suite bathroom(s) and an additional shower room so that every bedroom has a bathroom immediately adjacent.

There is a very large pool which has sun all day, but very private. There are stunning views across the mountains to Mas Nou.

What makes this villa unique

Great south facing location, largely uninterrupted views across the valley to mountains, very private, views of Palamos Bay, 5 mins to beach at St.Antoni, easy access to supermarkets and excellent street market at Calonge, off street parking,etc

Lovely traditional villa with stunning views

  • 5 of 5
We found this villa to be perfect for our needs. The photos provide a true likeness and the owner's description was spot on. It has a lovely comfortable feel about it. We particularly liked the open plan arrangement for the living area and the covered terrace for al-fresco dining. For a group with two families it would work particularly well with bedrooms and bathrooms on both levels.

The pool is not heated, but by September was beautifully warm, and the large terrace provided sun all day, with stunning views across the mountains. There were plenty of sunbeds and there is shade if you need it.

The location is great and only a short drive to Palamos for bars and restaurants and there are good supermarkets and local shops within a couple of minutes, in Calonge. For golfers, there are some challenging courses in the area, and this provides a great base from which to play them.

Maison mal entretenue et pas pour 10 personnes

  • 2 of 5
Il n'y a que 4 vraies chambres, la 5ème étant un cagibi avec lit superposé et porte fenêtre (odeur de moisi et saleté).
Cette maison n'est pas faite pour 10 personnes tant pour le couchage que pour les repas (vaisselle insuffisante et terrasse trop juste).
Contrairement aux mentions de l'annonce personne ne parle français, ni les propriétaires ni les agents sur place.
Il n'y a pas de garage ni de sèche linge ni de véranda. Le "nouveau jardin ombragé au-dessous de la piscine" n'est qu'une étroite bande de cailloux ressemblant à un terrain de pétanque.
La plage n'est pas à 2 Km mais à plus de 5, la route étant très escarpée pour accéder à la maison les sorties à pied sont délicates avec les enfants .
Les canapés sont hors d'âge et d'une propreté douteuse, les matelas des lits très inconfortables.
L'annonce stipule "La piscine et les jardins sont très privés" mais
la personne chargée de l'entretien de la piscine débarque sur la terrasse sans sonner et ce 2 fois / semaine.
Le terrain est très étagé il y a donc beaucoup de surface "perdue" car inaccessible ou trop pentue, la maison est entouré d'un muret très bas et d'un portillon ne fermant pas à clé.

Cette maison est mal entretenue, le ménage est plus qu'approximatif et les prestations ne sont pas à la hauteur du prix demandé.
Seule la piscine tient ses promesses ainsi que l'environnement immédiat très boisé et montagneux.

Owner's Response: This guest was described by our agents as the worst they had ever encountered. She complained endlessly from the moment of arrival and brought 2 dogs with her, which had never been mentioned or agreed.

On the web-site, it is clearly stated that the 5th bedroom has a bunk bed and is best suited for 2 children. This room has a fully glazed door leading to the small garden area on the west side of the house, with a security, wood door on the outside of it, which provides darkness at night if required. There is also a small window for ventilation, ( photo available on request).

There are 5 bedrooms providing 10 beds. The master bedroom has plenty of room for another bed/cot as do bedrooms 3 and 4. There is cutlery for 12 persons.

The site does not say that French is spoken, nor does it say there is a garage; there is a parking bay for 2 cars; there are no parking restrictions in the street.

The terraced area below the pool is nearly always in shade, and we agree that it would be good for petong!!

The web-site states the nearest beach is about 5km away and also states that a car is essential. It is clear from the description and photos that this is a mountain development. Therefore, whilst it is a pleasant walk down it can be a tiring walk back up!!
The outdoor furniture is similar to what most of the houses on the mountain provide.

The pool man always announces his presence if the guests are at home. If necessary he will offer to call back at another time , but it is usual for the pool to be cleaned/treated a couple of times per week in the peak season.

Fantastic for a family group with its own large pool, but only 5km from the sea at St Antoni with lovely sandy beaches and safe swimming. Numerous activities all within easy driving distance, including tennis courts, football pitches, fantastic Aqua Park (7km), together with Go Karts (10km) and numerous crazy golf courses, plus all sea/beach related sports. Quad bikes just 2 minutes drive from the house. There is excellent traditional Spanish restaurant/bar within a few minutes drive Or for a golfing group – the property looks directly across to the Mas Nou golf course, and a further 7 excellent courses are within easy driving distance. We can provide a list of the courses and help arrange reservations and recommendations. Very large Norwegian style, wood burning fire, with radiating heat, plus central heating throughout (not in peak season!) Outside dining area, BBQ area and fantastic swimming pool for summer use, make for a perfect relaxing holiday
