Apartment of 80 m² + balconies. Large living room of garden + pool.
On the eighth floor of a beachfront building, crossing East / West, it can live quietly: You only hear the sound of waves and seagulls around, while enjoying the beautiful sunshine with a light refreshing breeze midsummer.
Bordered on each side with large balconies (pool side terrace), it allows a sea view / walk waterfront / city Blanès East side at sunrise (with the famous "Sa Palomera" and castle view) and sea / beach / garden + West side pool. The apartment is very bright and all day.
Inside, it consists of:
- From a large entrance,
- On the left, a fully equipped kitchen large enough to eat,
- On the right, a large living room with a sofa 3 seats "electric relax" and a two-seater sofa both white leather, a large flat screen TV (107 cm, satellite connection) Sony and a dining area. The living room and the "parents" room open onto a terrace where you can eat while watching the sea, the pool and the garden.
- In front, a corridor serves the night part.
This part is composed of two rooms:
- The children's room on the left (East) with pull-out beds for two people, a desk and a wardrobe,
- The room "parents" on the right (West) with two beds "hyper comfort" electric (relax set foam polyurethane 2x80x200cm), a dressing room, two bedside tables and a flat screen TV, all overlooking the terrace with bath of Sun.
The two chambers are separated by two bathrooms equipped for the first of a shower, sink and toilet and the second a large walk in shower with spa, a washbasin, bidet and WC.
Renovated with taste, it will allow you to enjoy quality services: Air conditioning, shower-whirlpool, Astra satellite television, Bosch appliances, swimming pool, garage ...
The residence is located against the beach (a little busy street to cross).
The apartment has a garage under the building closed by an electric gate.
This garage has a sealed bar in the ground where it is possible to attach bikes (can also access the cellar). Since the release of the building, 10 meters is the large sandy beach. The large private enclosed garden (condominium), lawn and flowers, has large pine trees to have shade, a large swimming pool (25 m pool for laps), a paddling pool for children and shower in private. A breakthrough hedge of a door gives direct access to the beach (ideal to shower back from the beach before entering the apartment).
TWO IMPORTANT POINTS TO NOTE:
1> The internet access is done by a public WiFi of very good quality (flow of the order of 3 Mbps, with a powerful signal). I refund the subscription on the rental period on request on the basis of one ticket per stay. Only one device can be connected at a time with the ticket.
2> The cleaning must be paid directly to the cleaning lady (55 Eur). This cost is not included in the details of the fees because I do not make any margin on this post and this saves you expenses related to the booking site.
During the sunny days typical of the Costa Brava, you can stroll through the market of fruits and vegetables (all season morning) and buy the tastiest products, recently picked by the farmers of the city.
After, you can take a dip in one of the beaches or coves of Blanes, where you can also participate in activities at the seaside proposed by the Kids Club. After a good morning at the beach with family, you can take a break to taste the typical dishes of traditional cuisine from the wide range of cuisine available in the village.
After lunch you can take a cruise or take a journey aboard the train along the beach. From here you can admire the scenery of Blanes, such as the Castle or the rock of Sa Palomera, which marks the beginning of the Costa Brava. You can also stroll through one of the best botanical gardens in the Mediterranean: the Marimurtra or Pinya de Rosa. Both have a wonderful offer of flowers, with plants worldwide and exceptional views;
To end the evening in style, you can stroll to the harbor, where you will see the activity of the hall of fishermen, one of the few halls that are always active on the Costa Brava. And to finish the day, an ice downtown. However, if you still have energy, you can go bowling, where there are also a number of activities for kids, have fun at the Mini Park Garbí, with mini golf and many activities for the whole family if you love popcorn, you can go to eat while watching a 3D movie at the cinema Lauren. You can also go Karting Blanes to live the emotion of a circuit.
Sport lovers will also find family endless possibilities, like, a bike ride through the delta of the Tordera, or part or paddle tennis.
A few kilometers away, the village of Lloret de Mar offers a variety of activities to the end of the night.

Why Jean-Dominique Delyon chose Blanes
We have bought this apartment during summer 2014 as a second home, and we decided to propose it to others.
What makes this Apartment unique
This apartment is located a little away from the city center (1-2 km) in the area of Los Pinos. This area offers many activities (clubs in the evening, various shops ...). The apartment has just been renovated and is very nice: Because it is located on the eighth floor, you can enjoy the wind and feel good even in summer.
Pool / Spa
Sports & Adventure Activities
Lovely appartement very close to the beach
We spent 10 nights in this nice appartement with our two kids. The appartement is very well equiped with two balconies, 3 tv's, 2 bathrooms, 2 sofas, a kitchen with a dishwasher and a washing/dryer combination. Everything looked well maintained. From your windows you have a nice view over Blanes, the beach and the see.
We were there in April/May and unfortunatelly a lot of shops and restaurants wee still closed. But there are some convenience stores nearby. And we also found a nice
bakery in the city.
The railway station has a large free parking. From there you can take the train which brings you to the heart of Barcelona.
We appreciated the communcation with the owner and the host on site very much.
Lovely Apartment, Quiet Holiday
Stayed here for 10 nights. Booking process easy & the owner was lovely (contact via emails) & always responded the same day and very helpful.
Once we had the keys & figured out which door it was to enter we found our way to the 8th floor apartment. First impressions were wow, this is great! It was clean, spacious and airy.
The kitchen had everything you need and more - except couldn't find a kettle, but I think there was a coffee filter pot. My husband is now complaining because I want a new 'bosch' kitchen!! :) We did use the kitchen for some evening meals, the oven, hob, fridge etc were spot on & there was more than enough plates & utensils.
The Lounge was comfortable & tv had many channels although English was limited. We were able to find a few channels other than news which made a change. Spacious dining area as well as kitchen.
The bedrooms were both adequate & the beds were very very nice, no complaints there. Plenty of cupboard/drawer space. My 21 yr old stayed in the 2nd bedroom and said his bed was so comfy too.
Bathrooms small but vanity units were nice & having 2 bathrooms made it a pleasure not having to queue for a shower! Only downfall here is there isn't a bath, not that it affected us but families with small children may prefer a bath for them.
Hallway spacious & light, big useful mirror.
Loved balconies on both sides and be nice to sit outside. The views from both sides of the apartment are wonderful. On a good day from the kitchen side you can see the mountains behind as well as the town and beach.
Loved that there was a garage because even though parking was free on the roads (for the time of year) we felt the hire car safer in the garage had damage problems in the past and having responsibility of a hire car makes me nervous.
Unfortunately the week we were in Blanes the weather wasn't too good & as the season hadn't started many places were still closed. We wandered into town every day, takes about 20/30 minutes to walk up to the rock at a steady pace. Blanes is a lovely town to walk round. We took a bus into Lloret de Mar one afternoon and a train to Barcelona another, and spent the weekend at the Grand Prix. Got on the beach for a few hours too that was nice as very few people were on it.
All in all it was a relaxing holiday. Would I recommend this apartment? YES, Will we go back? If we are ever staying in the area DEFINATELY!
Thank you very much for your kind message.
We try to do our best to ensure you enjoy your stay in Blanes, and in our flat.
Very sorry for the weather… this is one thing on which I cannot do anything :-).
It is true that, in May, some shops are not still opened. But you already have the market every morning in the town, and you can visit various places in the area. For instance, you can visit the Costa Brava, and the various villages / small towns: each has its own "colour". Lloret for the fest, until San Feliu which is more old and interesting.
But you had spent your time with some various activities. As we can understand in your message: Spain has a lot to offer, and it worth visiting again.
When you come back, I shall try to switch on the sun for you :-).
Had a nice vacation! Very comfortable appartement, well equipped! Beds are as good as at home :) The place is very good and just few steps from the sea. Blanes is a nice town, not so many turists and turist traps. Thank you for a nice week!
Thanks a lot for your compliment.
Happy to see that you had a good holiday in Blanes… and happy to have contributed :-).
A bright and airy apartment with glorious views!
We are widely travelled, and have stayed in many apartments, villas and houses over the years. I have to say that this beautiful apartment ranks as probably the best we have experienced! It is a spacious, airy apartment with commanding views on two aspects...the photos don't really do it justice. The spec is first class, and is extremely well equipped. The beds are extremely comfortable (rise & recline), and the sofas in the lounge are equally so. A well equipped kitchen with dish washer, washing machine, top quality oven, hob & fridge freezer are complimented by a vast array of all that is necessary for a hassle free holiday.
The apartment is located just a short (10 minute walk) from Blanes old town with it's many eateries and shops. However, the immediate area has plenty of restaurants, bars & shops to keep you entertained. Indeed, just by the entrance are a couple of really nice bar/cafés.
On arrival, the apartment was spotlessly clean and in top order, The booking experience was excellent with great communication from the owner Jean-Dominique who was pleased to answer any questions. Another big plus is the fact that the apartment has an allocated underground parking place-during summer months all street parking is paid (not a problem for us, as parking fees were suspended as we were late holiday makers!). There are plenty of places to explore around Blanes, and this part of Spain is very green and lush.
So, in closing, would I recommend this property.......in a word...yes! It is excellent in every way. Thank you Jean-Dominique In allowing us to share your lovely apartment.
I am very pleased for you to confirm you had a great holiday in Blanes, and that our apartment really suited your wishes.
I would receive you again with pleasure.
Lovely Modern Apartment with Great Sea Views
We stayed in this apartment at Easter. The apartment was easy to find and the images on the website do not do it justice. It was spotlessly clean and was just like home from home, the beds the softest I have ever known - couldn't have been more perfect, everything we needed was there. The weather was good and we were able to sit out on the balcony to have lunch overlooking the sea.
Blanes is a lovely town, felt safe and was very clean with a lovely beach. We walked up to the botanical gardens one day which was well worth the walk and also took the train into Barcelona. Overall a great time and hopefully we will return again sometime soon. Thanks again for sharing your home with us
Thanks for your message.
We are happy to see you confirming your previous emails, which were explaining you had a good holiday.
Hallo Herr Delyon.
Sehr Schöne Ferienwohnung,mit sonnigen Balkon direkt an der Strandpromenade und tollen Ausblick.
Blanes, being the first town on the Costa Brava, is often referred to as the gateway to the Costa. The nearest airports are Gerona 30 kilometers and 80 kilometers from Barcelona.
North (to France) stretches the Costa Brava and its coves. In the South, it is possible to reach Barcelona by direct train (1h20 along the coast), by bus (1h40) or car (70 km, 1h)
The city enjoys a typical Mediterranean climate with average summer temperatures frequently above 30º C.
The main beach of the city (S'Abanell) extends over 625 meters of fine golden sand and is one of the most popular in the region.
The main seafront promenade is located in the heart of the city and offers a wide variety of attractions for the whole family, including a bike path.
At the end of the promenade is one of the largest ports in the Costa Brava. It has berths for fishing boats and leisure and is undoubtedly a reference to the city.
It is also possible to spend a day boat with local fishermen ... or simply to buy fresh fish in fish of the city.
End of July, an international competition of fireworks is organized every year. Pulled from the beach, they are visible from the apartment.
