The property is on two levels, bedroom one is on the ground floor, whilst bedroom two and three are located in two separate towers, with separate staircases on each end of the villa. The villa sits on a large flat plot with no steps or slopes to negotiate. Our agents are English, live locally and can offer suggestions on places of interest.

About alan and keely

We are Alan and Keely Carter - we currently live in the South West of England and have owned the Villa for the past 12 years. Because we are a family with 2 children we understand how important it is for the property to be child friendly. We have enjoyed our family holidays here since our children were small and although our son is 19 years old, and daughter 21 years, we are so pleased that they still love to come here to enjoy family time with us each year.

We are always happy to answer any questions that you may have about the villa and we pride ourselves on our personal touch. Alan has had many telephone conversations with our holiday families that regularly rent and those who are new.

We currently live in Devon, the South West of England and we are both self employed in the tourist industry and with that knowledge know how important it is for our renters to be happy.

alan and keely purchased this villa in 2005

Why alan and keely chose Baix Emporda

My husband Alan and myself, Keely have enjoyed our holidays immensely here over the years - since first setting eyes on the villa and surrounding area we have never tired of the wildlife, peace and tranquility (all we can hear outside are the birds singing) and the good distance to the beaches in the area.

We often take taxi rides to the main resort of Platja D'Aro (about 10 mins drive) with it's long sandy beach, bars restaurants, fantastic nightlife, bowling, aqua parc and much more. La Fosca Beach (about 7 minutes drive).

The nearest supermarkets are 5 minutes drive and the nearest village of Calonge a few minutes. There are so many places to explore and visit and the Restaurants in Palamos, Platja D'aro are very good.

Our friendly Meet & Greet team, Herman & Natasha are on hand to welcome you to our property and our fluent in French, German, Spanish, English, Dutch. If you have any problems you can be assured that they are available to contact throughout your stay.

What makes this villa unique

The unique features that made us fall in love with our property are the wonderful pool which is ideal for children having steps going down into the shallow end, also the amazing outdoor dining and relaxing area, having the outdoor kitchen is very convenient for BBQ alfresco eating and are close enough to the pool to take a dip when you need to cool off.

The separate bedrooms in different areas of the house make it ideal to suit everyone. The upstairs bedroom with its outdoor balcony overlooking the pool, the downstairs bedroom with bathroom opposite (suitable for disabled or elderly as they do not have to negotiate stairs) and the 3rd bedroom on the upper level on the other side of the house with en suite bathroom suitable for all members of the family.

We think you will find that, being on flat ground, the villa is very easy for elderly or small children to walk and play and very disabled friendly.

There are different areas in the house to relax in and is very cool in the summertime with fans being available in all rooms. There is a main lounge area with tv and book case and then a follow on smaller lounge area (ideal for some quiet time to read a book or relax. The main kitchen is also off the lounge area and is fully equipped.

There is a dishwasher in the kitchen and a washing machine tucked away in the garage area so as not to disturb the peace and quiet.

The perfect villa for a lovely family holiday

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place. Very well equipped and maintained with a fabulous pool and garden. There are so many lovely spots in this villa to just sit down, relax and soak up the ambience of the lovely surroundings. The owners have gone to great lengths to ensure all your needs are catered for and have very thoughtfully left games, books, music and advice on a array of delicious restaurants and beautiful places to visit. We felt completely at home here and I would highly recommend.

een hele fijne , rustige villa

  • 5 of 5

Mooie villa voor een heerlijke vakantie !!! Het huis is zeer rustig gelegen en goed onderhouden. Heeft geen airco , maar met de houten klapramen blijft het huis vrij koel.Koelkast, wasmachine en afwasmachine werkte prima en zeer voldoende wasdraad met wasspelden. Voldoende badhanddoeken en keukenhanddoeken. Voor het boeken was er wel een klein probleem bij HomeAway , maar na een hele vriendelijke , bezorgde telefoon van Allan( de eigenaar) kwam dit snel in orde. Het is echt een eigenaar die zijn huurders een zo goed mogelijke vakantie wil geven. Het mooie zwembad is heel proper doordat het 2x per week onderhouden wordt. Geen inkijk in de tuin en is goed met groen omheind voor onze hond. Top was ook dat Herman( de toezichter) bij aankomst ons begeleidde naar het huisje en in het Nederlands de uitleg gaf. Op 10min ben je in Playa d'Aro ( winkelstad) en Palamos ( vissershaven met tal van goedkopere restaurants). In Sant Antoni de Callonge is het vrij rustig om te vertoeven. Restaurant Nautilus is daar een echte aanrader. Wij zijn daar ook steeds ons brood en boodschappen gaan halen. Kortom een echte aanrader dit verblijf. En als je vragen hebt, aarzel niet te bellen naar Allan (in het Engels wel).

Thanks Allan for our beautiful vacation!!!

Frank, Ann ,Vincent, Frederik.

Back again!

  • 5 of 5

Sorry for late review! Thanks for reminder. So this was our second year visiting this gorgeous part of the world, once again we went as a group of non driving tourists, which in most circumstances would be a huge set back. But here with the help of Herm, it wasn't. He showed us a small shop in town where we rented five bikes for the two weeks at a very reasonable price. From that point on it was just spectacular, we discover a huge amount of new beaches, with crystal clear water and practically empty. We went for a day trip down to La Fosca, which if you get the chance i would definitely recommend, stunning views and more clear blue seas, perfect for a good snorkel! Eating out wise we found two excellent new restaurants in palamos, one was in a hostel, I don't recollect the name. The other was just down the road called La Salsa, both excellent food and very well priced. The villa it's self is perfect, everything you could need and more, pool is kept to perfection, bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. And when you are standing by the outside BBQ sipping on some local wine you are truly in paradise. Could recommend more!!!

Owner's Response: Hi Rowan Thank you for your fantastic review of the villa and local information. It's really good to hear of the bike rental (not something we thought about) but may well give it a try. Thank you for the recommendation of restaurants, Palamos has some great places to eat. I think the one you mean is Restaurant Hostal Vostra Llar, one we have visited and very good. Many thanks! ALAN AND KEELY

Yet another great holiday in this villa.

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd year coming here. We can't say enough about Alan and how helpful he was,making sure all was ok for you for when you got there and telling us about places to go and restaurants to eat in(try La salsa in Palamos). When we get to the villa we feel very much at home here and settle in very easily every time. We take our dog and she loves it as well(my parents came this year and now understand why we return). All the rooms are a good sizes, but we spend most of our time outside until late. Fantastic covered area for breakfast, lunch and of course the BBQ. The villa is in a very peaceful area and the only noise is from us having fun in the pool. You do need a car, but you can get a taxi easy enough, just ask Hermann for the number(Daniel is his name and speaks very good english). As for Hermann & Natasha they meet you when you get there and what very helpful people they are. Good place to shop is Plata d'Aro just 10 mins away, good restaurants and designer shops as well. Palamos a nice old town, good restaurants and you might see a cruise ship docked(as we did). Barcelona is about an hour away, you can catch a train from Girona. We would highly recommend this villa to our family, friends and to any person who wishes to book & of course we will be back next year, we can't thank you enough Alan & Keely for all you help and the uses of your villa AGAIN. Talk soon. Barry, Catherine & Mia.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Barry for your kind words, this is what it is all about. when we put the effort into making our Spanish Home enjoyable for our guests, it is not just about renting the villa, taking the money, it's about regular guests and how much they enjoy themselves that makes it all worthwhile to us. It was all a pleasure to us, knowing that you were returning and it lets us know we are doing the right thing, but will still carry on trying to improve the comfort and luxuries of the villa each year.

Perfect Get Away

  • 5 of 5

This villa is simply perfect! With everything we could have asked for and more. we literaly lived like millionaires for the two weeks. Barbecues in the outside kitchen, cocktails round the pool (and on my rubber ring in the pool) and or course staying up till the early hours playing card and listening to the rather "interesting" CD collection provided. which we in fact added to, so if you see a James Brown CD then you'll know where that came from! The owners couldn't have been more helpful and when we told them we weren't taking a car they even looked into the highering of push bikes. When we got there the place was spotless and our breath was truly taken away. The pictures just do not capture the beauty.

Really i would recommend this to all.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for this beautiful review - its nice to hear from a group that enjoyed the villa so much without a car and explored the area on a bike. Hearing that you lived like kings makes us very happy because thats how we feel when we are there. Thanks again Alan and Keely

The Villa is set in a very quiet area at the foothills of the Gavarres, at Vizcondado de Cabanyes. Close to the medieval town of Calonge and within easy reach of Sant Antoni, Palamos and Playa D' Aro. 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, or travelling further afield to enjoy the wonderful countryside. Just 35 minutes from Girona and 90 minutes from Barcelona, with many other historical and cultural towns all within a 1 hour drive.

Within easy reach there are many good shops, restaurants and daily markets to enjoy.
