About the property

Luxury family villa: Private Pool, gardens, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6

Casa Canyella is a pretty Spanish villa with elevated views across the valley to the ancient sea port of Palamos, and the Mediterranean beyond.

Casa Canyella has private gardens all around, with brick built BBQ, as well as stone and tiled terraces around the property.

Fast WiFi (30Mbps) is provided free for our guests

You can swim in the pool and gaze down upon Calonge Castle in the valley below!

The accommodation is all on one level, with French doors that lead straight onto the patio area by the pool. The 9 metre by 5 metre pool has Roman steps at the shallow end, and a pool ladder at the deep end.

The villa has off-road parking for two cars, and has Mediterranean-style gardens.

To see Casa Canyella prices , select 'Prices' at the top of this page, then:

Select 'View all prices' (under Prices & Availability'.

Casa Canyella has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, an American-style fully-fitted kitchen with large fridge and freezer, ceramic hob, fan oven and dishwasher.

It also has a spacious lounge with air-conditioning for summer, and a wood-burning stove (brilliant at Christmas).

The gardens are very secluded and occupy about a quarter of an acre for privacy and perfect relaxation.

First discovered by the Greeks and Romans, the beach alongside the bay of Roses at L'Escala houses the museum of Roman & Greek ruins. This museum has to be visited along with the excellent restaurants at St Marti (a brilliant day out).

Figueres is the birthplace of Salvador Dali. Born in 1904, he must surely be the most memorable member of the art world ever!

The Dali Museum at Figueres is mind-blowing!

Casa Canyella is a place where you have fabulous sea views, your own pool, and yet you are only 5 minutes from white sandy beaches. Soak up the sun in the garden or stay cool indoors with the air-conditioned lounge - Your choice!

About Ian Weston

We've owned Casa Canyella since 2003, and have always enjoyed holidaying in Spain.

We first visited this area many years ago and were impressed by it's delightful coves and beaches. It has never been over-developed.

When you've spent all year working in television and films it's an ideal getaway - a great place to come and unwind.

Ian Weston purchased this villa in 2003

Why Ian Weston chose Calonge

Traditional quaint Spanish villa, loads of outside space combined with spectacular views, fabulous pool, and only 5 minutes by car from the beach...

What makes this villa unique

Casa Canyella has fabulous views of the Mediterranean and onwards to Palamos as well as overlooking Calonge and the neighbouring valley.

Geckos an be seen basking on the terrace under the mid-day sun (although they're very nervous and soon disappear when people are around).

The front balcony completes the 360 degree vista and is great for the setting sun at the end of the day.

Casa Canyella provides an excellent standard of accommodation together with air-conditioning, satellite and internet UK TV and a local representative for the benefit of our guests.

We have many guests return year after year - Casa Canyella has everything you need for a chilled out relaxing holiday.

40 Megabits per second WiFi is provided in the villa. Free public WiFi is available along the beach-front at Sant Antoni, as well as the main square in Calonge (Placa de la Concordia).

WiFi is also provided free throughout Platja d'Aro and in most restaurants and bars.

A wonderful week in a lovely villa - Home from Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in Casa Canyella. Communications with the owner Ian were very good and we did have need to speak to him during our stay (nothing major), and he helped us with the issue straight away which is reassuring. The villa is spacious, the pool fabulous, clean and immaculate. The house really did have everything we needed. Items in the kitchen, around the lounge, the furnishings were good quality, clean and had a nice feel about it. We were four adults and one small baby - so the lovely cot was welcome. Fans in all the bedrooms (air con would be perfect), but air con in the lounge kept the downstairs nice and cool. The views are wonderful so I cannot recommend the Villa enough.

Great villa in a great location to access the coast and inland attractions of the Costa Brava.

  • 4 of 5

The villa is located up the hill above Calonge, a lovely peaceful village only a few km from the coast. The well-maintained and clean pool is a real asset to the villa, especially on hot summer days. Being at height is an asset too on hot days and evenings when the villa is served with a cooling breeze. Beautiful views of distant sea and nearby hills. Choice of lovely veranda and dining table or table and chairs beside pool for outside dining. Very good barbecue provided near pool. The villa overall is well equipped with everything you might need. Rooms are a good size and beds comfortable.

Calonge is well served with nearby supermarkets. Fantastic daily fish market at nearby Palamos, don't miss it !!

A beautiful family home

  • 5 of 5

As soon as you walk into Casa Canyella you realise this is no ordinary holiday let, but a cosy family home. Immaculately clean, comfy beds and soft fluffy towels. Everything you need in the kitchen to cook and plenty of space indoors and outdoors to sit for a relaxing meal. Amazing views surrounding the villa and a lovely big pool. Communication with Ian, the owner, couldn't have been better. He was very quick to answer any questions and was a great help to us. It was a wonderful place to stay in and we were sad to leave it. We hope to visit it

Situated in the backyard of Platje d' Aro.

  • 5 of 5

The villa is fully equipped and is beautifully located near all the must sees in the area. The swimming pool and BBQ makes it complete.

The road leading up towards the villa needs a renovation but thats obvious nothing the owner can do anything about.

Overal a perfect vacation home and highly recommended.

Situated at the head of a quiet cul-de-sac on a small urbanisation at the very heart of the Costa Brava, the villa is a 5 min drive from our local blue-flag beach at St. Antoni, and two minutes from the medieval village of Calonge. Calonge is well known for it's Castle, weekly market (Thursday) and classical musical festivals throughout the summer. It also has a permanent exhibition of paintings and handicrafts. There is a well-stocked supermarket within walking distance.

Sant. Antoni de Calonge, with it's long white sandy beach, has many good restaurants & shops. There are several excellent restaurants within walking distance of the Villa.

The seaside towns of Platja d'Aro and San Feliu de Guixols have a lively night-life. You can even hire a segway to ride along Platja d'Aro seafront.

The drive to Tossa del Mar is simply stunning and the Salvador Dali museum at Figueres has to be seen at least once.

The villa is well served by Girona Airport (30 min), Barcelona Airport (60 min) and Reus Airport. Ryanair, Jet 2 and Easy-Jet all have year-round regular flights.

Other Activities: There are many local festivals including many international Jazz festivals, Seafood - 'Gamba de Palamos' and Sant Feliu de Guixol's 'Blue-Fish' festival etc.

Casa Canyella is a brilliant villa with hilltop location, superb views,close to the sea, shops and night-life and yet you can swim in your own pool and be be totally private, chilled out and away from it all.
