About the property

3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, parking and terrace

This charming fisherman's cottage is located on the canals in the picturesque town of Santa Margarita, Roses. The mooring for a ten metre boat is located at the end of the terrace. 3 Good sized bedrooms with beds for eight people. One bedroom has en suite and there is an additional bathroom with toilet and shower. The well appointed kitchen has all of the modern amenities including washing machine and microwave. The bright and airy lounge opens through to the terrace with awning and barbecue. IPTV is also provided.

There is so much to do in this region and with the sea and mountains so close the options for activities are almost endless. If it's just a relaxing holiday you are looking for then while away the evening hours with a cocktail on the terrace beside the waters edge.

For those of you interested in Scuba the property is actually run by a scuba holiday company offering complete holiday packages for experienced scuba divers. The area has much to offer with 67 high quality dive sites within 40 minutes of the house using Fleet Dive's 7.5m Valiant RIB.

For the keen Golfer the courses at Peralada and the PGA course in Girona are hard to beat.

If you are keen on jumping from aeroplanes then the skydiving centre at Empuriabrava is only 5 minutes away by car!

We have a seven seat Dodge Grand Caravan with air conditioning which is available at extra cost.

Waterside Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six (including 3 teenagers and a 4 year old), spent a very enjoyable week here in Santa Margarida.

Our host greeted us with a warm and thoughtful welcome and the property was clean, practical, safe, and comfortable. It was equipped with all we needed, including a BBQ and DVD. The living areas are spacious and the bedrooms and bathrooms were big enough for us. It was quiet at night and during the day and the view across the canal was lovely.

We arrived in the middle of a heatwave, so in spite of a fan in each bedroom, most of our family found the nights very hot while the temperature soared, but ok when they returned to normal for the time of year.

The location was excellent for visiting the waterfront and for exploring towns and coast further away. We would like to recommend our helpful host and this cottage to others.

Perfect family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We are regular customers at this property and this alone should speak volumes! It's clean, comfortable and setup for family fun, with a bit of diving thrown in. The hosts can't be more helpful! The house is close to shops and restaurants and Roses is only 10 minutes away. If you fancy skydiving, Empuriobrava is your ultimate destination!

The Calas are beautiful if you want a bit more secluded place, but the main beach at Santa Margarida is a good place with small kids.

We will continue to come back in all seasons as the area is beautiful in spring summer and autumn!

Brilliant house, brilliant host!

  • 5 of 5

Me, the wife and kids had a fantastic stay at the house in Spain. Beautiful location, beautiful weather and Ian was a fantastic host. If we had any questions or needed help he was super friendly, and the Costa Brava is a wicked place for a quick get away (even some beers in the fridge when we arrived!). Went over with the intention of scuba diving and wasn't disappointed! Really handy being able to just load the kit on to the boat at the house and de-kit with a few beers on the terrace instead of loading and unloading into cars and dragging it around! Local restaurants and shops are really reasonable, kids loved the beaches and the place is really tourist friendly. Planning to go back later on this year, and would definitely recommend this place!

Everything ok

  • 4 of 5

Yes Ian, we made our way back and hope everything was in place after our departure. We enjoyed the stay and maybe will come back, but with less draft then. The Comfortina was set on its keel every night, very calming. So this was a good opportunity to teach the crew tidal navigation by centimeters in the Mediterranean. Thanks a lot and sea you.

Santa Margarita
Car: not necessary

Placed directly between Empuriabrava and Roses Santa Margarita has much to offer the traveller. Based on a series of canals which join with the beautiful Mediterranean coastline this town is quite unique and offers beautiful views wherever you are. We have many first class restaurants, some with their own swimming pools and the golden sandy beaches stretch for literally miles along the coast! We are able to offer our mooring located at the end of the terrace if you should wish to bring your boat. Such is the beauty of this offering of a fine fisherman's cottage on the canals! The skydiving centre at Empuriabrava is 5 minutes drive away as is the Aquabrava water park. Roses has much to offer too with some spectacular bays (Cala's) which are perfect locations for a peaceful swim in the clear blue waters of the Med.
