About the property

Quiet location within easy reach of the village and the beaches

Located in the charming fishing village of El Port de la Selva, in the Costa Brava, “Giraluna” is a beautiful villa in the rustic style with lots of character, set among pine trees at the top of the hillside and offering spectacular views over the bay and the mountains. The town is only 5 minutes away by foot via a tranquil set of stairs. The entrance to the protected reserve of “Parc Natural de Cap de Creus” is only 30 meters away, making it a very quiet location.

The house sleeps 7 between 3 double bedrooms. Most of the rooms have panoramic views. There is a well appointed kitchen, a spacious and light living room with a raised dining room, which faces a lovely interior patio 'andaluz'. There are several terraces, including a roof terrace with 360 degrees views over the main bay, the Nature Reserve, the unspoilt Tamariua beach and the open sea, from which to enjoy sunset drinks or star gazing at night.

There is a garage for one car and extra off-street parking

In addition, the property contains two independent flats which can be rented as well through separate negotiation. They are located at the lower level of the house and they are accessed from a different independent entrance from a lower street level. One is a small one bedroom studio flat with a little kitchen and dining/sitting area, ideal for a couple. The larger flat has one bedroom, an open plan kitchen and a separate spacious living room with space for extra beds. In total it can accommodate a total of 4 people. They both have their own terraces and enjoy similar amazing views as the main house.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Inolvidable vacacion en la Villa "Giraluna" donde tuvimos la oportunidad de hacer caminatas al pintoresco pueblo de pescadores Port de la Selva y sus playas,

al parque natural Cap de Creus y a otros sitios interesantes de los alrededores.

La casa nos resulto perfecta para recibir amigos copa en mano frente al Mediterraneo saboreando tapas locales, y en el barbecue de la cocina preparamos simpaticas comidas servidas cara al mar.

Su cercania a los sitios que no pueden faltar en los planes, como la casa de Dali y Cadaques, fue una inesperada sorpresa.

Nos encantaria regresar a la Costa Brava para ver y conocer mas, teniendo de cuartel general la hermosa Giraluna.

Arrived at villa 5th September 2015 for 10 nights and we all were blown away with the views and the fantastic location of Giraluna, the Villa was perfect and all rooms were very large and our party of 7 found it very spacious , the decor was top class everything you could wish for your stay.

Anyone going for a holiday to Giraluna Villa will be very pleased they did.

Fabulous, Simply Fabulous.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I along with another couple enjoyed six wonderful days in "Giraluna"

We found this beautiful home exactly as described as to location, layout and facilities. It was clean, well maintained and the views... fantastic. We especially enjoyed evening visits to watch the fishing fleet unload the day's catch and the follow-on auction. Dining opportunities abound but whatever you do, do not miss Monterrey!

We enjoyed a fantastic week!

  • 5 of 5

It has been a great experience. The property is fantasic, with breath-taking views and in a calm and peaceful location, though near the village.

In fact, Port de la Selva is a great location, very near from many sites that must be visited.

Mercedes and Marta made our staying easy and comfortable, like if we were in our own house. The property is basically full-equiped and in perfect conditions, so having a fantastic holidays is just up to you!!!

Lovely stay in Giraluna

  • 5 of 5

Giraluna is a lovely villa overlooking the beautiful bay of El Port de la Selva on one side, and the National Park of Cap de Creus on the other. Giraluna is generously spaced, elegantly furnished and fully equipped. We loved evening meals on the terrace overlooking the sea at sunset. We received full information from the owner when we paid our deposit, and were welcomed very nicely to the villa upon arrival. Highly recommended.

Holiday to enjoy

  • 5 of 5

We spent two wonderful weeks in the house Giraluna.The house itself is beautifully constructed and has a very tasteful garden withsome places to recover. The best is of course the unique location with stunning views of the sea and the countryside. We have enjoyed this every day and especially every evening when teh sun went down. The house was very clean and well equipped. On hot days and nights we were very happy about the air conditioning. The village is not far away. You can go there on foot. There are all necessary shops and good restaurants. Also the beaches are not far away. You can choose between a sandy beach in the village and a stone beach in a small bay. All in all we had a wonderful 2 weeks in "Giraluna". We would come back any time.

Wir waren nur zu Zweit in dem großen Haus und haben die Weitläufigkeit genossen. Besonderen Gefallen fanden wir an dem Schlafzimmer mit Panoramafenster, dem großen Wohnraum mit Kamin und der perfekt eingerichteten Küche. Von überall hat man einen herrlichen Blick auf die Bucht. Mehrere zum Teil windgeschützte Terrassen können auch noch im Herbst genutzt werden. Wir hatten einen Kälteeinbruch und waren erfreut, dass es eine leistungsstarke Heizung gab. Einziger Nachteil: der Zugang zum Haus führt durch die Garage und das Schwingtor ist für ältere Leute doch etwas schwer zu handhaben.

Das Haus liegt direkt am Eingang zum Naturpark von Cap de Creus. Man ist sofort schönen Wanderwegen durch eine unberührte Landschaft. In El Port gibt es gute Geschäfte zum Einkaufen und vor allem fangfrischen Fisch. Wir haben fest vor wieder zu kommen.
