Santa Cristina de Aro Villa Rental Photos and Description
3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, 6 People
Villa 104 is situated on a quiet estate on the edge of the Gauarres Mountains, above the small town of Santa Cristina d'Aro. It enjoys a spectacular southerly view across a wide valley to the L'Ardenya Mountains and the Mediterranean Sea. At night the lights of Sant Feliu de Guixols and S'Agaro shimmer on the horizon. The villa was built in 2003. Upstairs are two double bedrooms and one twin bedroom, two of which have balconies with beautiful views. The main bedroom has an en suite bathroom. The other two bedrooms share an adjacent bathroom. Downstairs is a large kitchen, dining area and toilet. The living room opens out onto a covered terrace, again enjoying wonderful views. There are steps down to an 8 x 4 metre secluded pool that is ideal for private sun bathing and simply relaxing. The back garden and pool are totally private. The nearest restaurants, shops and beautiful beaches are a short drive from the villa therefore a car is essential.
Golf details: Catalonia is one of the best possible destinations for golf enthusiasts offering 36 courses in perfect conditions on which to play all year round. Two of these fabulous courses are within 10 minutes drive of the villa. The Club de Golf Costa Brava is immersed in the landscape of the Emporda and can be seen from the Villa. The Club de Golf d'Aro (Mas Nou) winds its way through pine and cork forests with amazing inland as well as coastal views.( We have played this one! Every hole is interesting. Stunning views. A good course but not a challenge length wise). Don't forget that the P.G.A. Golf de Catalunya (20 minutes) is one of the ten best courses in Europe and Emporda Golf (40 minutes) boasts 27 of the best golf holes in Spain.
Sea Activities and Skiing: The diversity of coastline enables all water sport activities - visitors may wish to try swimming, sailing, water skiing, windsurfing, kayaking and snorkelling. The ruggedness of the Costa Brava continues under the sea to provide some of the best diving in Spain. In some spots remarkable crimson coral still thrives. Approved tourist diving centres with certified instructors operate at a dozen or more places.
Five resorts, four for alpine and one (Guils de Cerdanya) for cross-country skiing make up the range of winter sport options in the Pirineu de Girona. La Molina, Masella, Vall de Núria (2 hours) and Vallter 2000 (1 hour 45 minutes) have now become skiing classics in Catalonia, at a time of a real leap forward due to improved services and facilities, & areas like Alp 2500 which, thanks to the connection between La Molina and Masella, can offer the largest skiable area in the Pyrenees, with a surface area of 100 kilometres.
Natural Areas and Culture: In the Girona province, the natural parks of the Garrotxa Volcanic Area, Cadi-Moixeró, Cap de Creus, Montseny and the Medes Islands are spectacular areas of unique natural beauty. Nowhere as here has the power of nature shown itself so varied and full of subtlety. Protected natural areas account for 30% of the surface area.
Archaeology: The megalithic monuments of the Albera mountain range, the Serinyà Historic Caves Park, the Cova d'en Daina dolmen in Romanyà de la Selva, the Iberian settlement at Ullastret and the Greco-Roman city of Empúries are millenary testimony that has still the power to surprise and move visitors.
Museums: The art and universal spirit of Salvador Dali head up a list of offerings that must inevitably include the Dali Triangle (the Dali Theatre-Museum in Figueres, the Portlligat Museum-House in Cadaqués and the Gala Dali Castle in Púbol); Girona's Archaeology, Art, History, Cathedral and Cinema Museums; the Toy Museum of Catalonia, also in Figueres.
