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 chose this plot as i was able to slightly amend the design. I reorienated the master bedroom, so that having opened the shutter doors to the terrace it is possible to sit in bed and see the sun rise over the bay of Palamos; i also provided ensuite 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.
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
