We were treated always with such kindness –starting with encouragements to ask for any assistance regarding activities and information about the area before our stay, to a personal send-off by brother and sister owners at our departure. An example: Maria investigated and provided information on a personal wish to play tennis on a clay court –in advance she made reservations for us and provided directions once we arrived for our stay. We were also greeted with a basket assortment of fine wine, cheeses, meat and fresh vegetables from the nearby farm –and a personal tour of the large family owned villa that included a how-to to enjoy the wonderful outdoor pool, washer/dryer, outside lighting system, and how to lock the very old and very large front door and gate to the property (both unusual and fabulous). The home is on a large estate, completely private and enclosed by 8 foot+ stone fence and iron front gate, nicely landscaped with private pool. The interior of several levels was elegantly appointed with antique furnishings from the family estate, but also updated in bathrooms and kitchen to include everything modern that would be desired. We highly recommend this for families or group gatherings –our group consisted of four families, comfortably under one roof. If ever our travels are to Barcelona or nearby, we will be sure to stay here again (we liked the approximate 45 minute access to Barcelona, 45 minutes to nearby Costa Brava beaches and 1 ½ hour driving distance to France).
