Overview

Baix Emporda Villa Rental Photos and Description

Air conditioned, 4 bedroom-Sleeps 6, private pool/parking, flat plot

This air conditioned villa with private pool and off road secure parking is set in a quiet cul-de-sac close to the historic town of Calonge. The villa is located on a flat plot on the hillside urbanisation of Vizcandado de Cabanyes. Although peaceful and secluded the villa is close to the towns of San Antoni, Palamos and Platja D’aro and is convenient for local shops, restaurants, supermarkets and beaches. The villa is equipped to a very high standard and includes air conditioning. A modern separate kitchen leads into the open plan dining and living room. Through the double doors off the dining room you will find our sun room. The garden is completely enclosed. The pool is kidney shaped 8.5 x 4 and is surrounded by a terrace which has the added advantage of a stone built barbeque, a dining and sunbathing area. More table and chairs can be found on the slightly raised terrace which makes for a lovely breakfast or evening drinks spot. Thought and care has gone into every detail.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • wheelchair inaccessible

We would thoroughly recommend Villa Mariposa

  • 5 of 5

Hi Karl

We had a really good time at Villa Mariposa. When you book a holiday villa on line it's with trepidation when you arrive to see if it's met expectations. In this case I can safely say it exceeded expectations - no carefully posed photos or use of wide-angled lens to distort the truth. The house is a good size for the 5 of us, pool fantastic, ideal bbq and air con in the bedrooms very well used. The kitchen was particularly well stocked, the patio lovely for sitting out and having breakfast, lunch and dinner and a good sized lounge for when it got too hot outside.

The location was great, a nice local town with all the supermarkets needed. A short drive to the beach for evening recreation and Barcelona just 1.5 hrs drive away. We went into Barcelona twice, one full day to visit the city which was great and an evening to see Barcelona Vs AC Milan - quite a treat! We would thoroughly recommend it.

Regards

Ian, Fiona and family

Our best family holiday ever

  • 5 of 5

Hi Pam and Karl, we don't normally give feedback, we have a tendency just to come home and reflect together on our trip. But this time, and our first time ever, we felt obliged to drop you a quick note to say that we had the best family holiday ever. Considering we have been lucky enough to have holidays for several years now, never have we enjoyed it so much. Besides the place being amazing and a prefect home from home, it was the little things that made it special. The initial conversations with you guys, made us extremely welcome, the support of the agent for the meet and greet, the beautiful surroundings and even the toys for the kids to entertain themselves, on behalf of Sylvia, the kids and myself, a big thanks for helping us have our best holiday ever!

Amazing Stay

  • 5 of 5

Hi Karl/Pam, just wanted to say a big thank you, we had an absolutely amazing stay. The whole process was easy and simple right from the get-go! So a big thank you for all your help and guidance. On arrival we were greeted by the extremely helpful agent, they gave us an update on the day to day workings of the villa as well as the surrounding area. The villa really is a home from home, it is extremely well laid out with nothing required, the use of beach towels really was an nice additional touch! The kids loved the nice flat plot that allowed them to play freely, the use of some kids toys proved a winner and life saver for us, kept them amused while we relaxed next to the pool/BBQ area. Thanks again for a wonderful holiday, Katharine

Brilliant Villa & Location

  • 5 of 5

The villa was wonderful and we were even lucky with the weather, it got hotter and sunnier the longer we stayed.

The villa had almost everything you could possibly need for a very relaxing and comfortable stay - the pool and children's toys we're definitely a massive bonus and something that families with younger children will really appreciate.

Very easy to find and to use as a base to get around the local area and also to Barcelona and the Pyrenees are within reach.

The tv was also great to have for some evenings, especially if you decide to stop in or the weather is not so great. Plenty of room to spread out and relax, bbq and pool allow easy watching of younger children whilst outside.

Agent provided useful information and friendly service.

If you want a holiday relaxing and unwinding then this place is perfect.

Very highly recommended.

Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

Just arrived back from a short break at this lovely villa in Calonge. The booking process was a pleasure with the owner Karl supplying all the help, reassurance and advice needed well in advance.

Access from Girona is a piece of cake, the villa being only a few minutes from the main autoroute and not more than 40 minutes drive from the airport.

On arrival we met with great hospitality from Karl's agent there, Sam, who remained available in case of any arising need - but there was none!

The villa is well equipped, very comfortable and in a quiet residential area. The pool was of course lovely to cool off in though the lovely beaches around this part of the Costa Brava coast are a great attraction. if "shop till you drop" is what you like then Plajta d'Aro is a short drive away with plenty going on there throughout the day and well into the night!

As with all other reviewers here, if you're looking for comfort, convenience and hospitality in a good holiday location, then I would highly recommend this house.

A fabulous holiday, a week was not long enough.

  • 4 of 5

Excellent location,a warm welcome from Sam the agent. The villa was homely and relaxing to stay in and the wine and nibbles a nice touch. This was the fourth year we have stayed in this area and this was the best holiday we have had yet.

The medieval village of Calonge is about half way between the French border and Barcelona and within 60 minutes drive of the historic city of Girona. The villa is located on the hillside urbanisation of Vizcondado de Cabanyes. The plot is mainly flat with an extensive area of rock garden to the sides and rear which is home to Peach, Nectarine and Palm trees which attracts wonderful butterflies and birds. The Villa's location offers the contrast of a complete away from it all relaxing by the pool style holiday, alternatively a few minutes drive to the many varied and beautiful beaches and towns, or you can travel further afield to enjoy the wonderful countryside, big cities and animal parks.

Other Activities: Quad Biking
