About Maria Yadegar
We live in Hampshire, UK with our three daughters. Mark runs his own business and I am a mural artist. We have enjoyed holidaying in Spain on several occasion, but fell in love with the Costa Brava on our first visit and knew we wanted to return. Our girls have almost grown up in Spain and support Barcelona football and love Messi and Xavi who is local to this area.
Maria Yadegar purchased this villa in 2001
Why Maria Yadegar chose Calonge
We found our villa on our second visit to the Costa Brava and knew we had to pull out all the stops to buy it. We spent the first 10 months completely renovating it and putting in a swimming pool and garden which we designed and planted ourselves. We love the location which is very quiet and peaceful, but you only have a quick car ride to reach some lively resorts. It really is a home from home for us and we can't imagine not having our own little part of the Costa Brava.
What makes this villa unique
This property stood out for us as it is in an ideal location on a lovely private urbanisation when all you can hear late at night are the crickets. The view across the valley from our upper terrace is beautiful and we are surrounded by the glorious Gavarres mountains. We have a growing family of now 3 teenage daughters and we enjoy having the space in Villa Maria to cater for their friends to visit and we have also enjoyed holidays here with Grandparents and other friends of ours with their children. There really is something for everyone here and guests often return the following year.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We have had a pleasant stay in your home with fantastic weather every day.
Plaja d'Aro is a very lively town (restaurants, boutiques, shops) and unlike calonge san antoni de calonge.
The outside is very pleasant (pool, terrace and garden). All the interior furniture is functional and had everything we needed. Too bad that the garage is not available to tenants (for parking motorcycles).
Sam is very friendly.
Hoping that this information will be helpful.
