a wonderful retreat

  • 5 of 5

Cadaques is a beautiful little spot with its lovely coves and boat harbors. We never tire of exploring it yet always look forward to coming home

to Skyemar to sit and relax on the terrace and just gape at the magnificent views.

Thank you Scott and family for sharing your wonderful aerie. We will return.

Totally unique and very special

  • 5 of 5

The photos, as beautiful as they are, can not begin to capture the extraordinary views and special character of this house. We spent hours sitting on the terrace overlooking the infinity pool taking in the panorama of the scene before us - back to the town of Cadaques or out beyond the mouth of Cadaques bay to the open sea. Monitoring the comings and goings of the boat traffic in and out of the bay - not to mention the wind surfs racing across the mouth of the bay whenever the tramuntana wind picked up - was totally mesmerizing. Immediately below the house - cut out of the side of a cliff - are the transparent waters of the Mediterranean, where you can swim and snorkel. For a change of scene and and a moment of privacy, there are tables and chairs tucked away in different corners of the beautiful gardens.

It is difficult to leave the comfort and beauty of the house, Skyemar, but when we did, there were many choices. Top of the list was a regular walk along cliff's edge of a couple of miles to the Cala Nans lighthouse. It was also just a 5 minute walk down the hill to the local beach , where we swam every morning. We regularly made the comfortable 20 minutes walk to the center of town to eat in one of the scores of delicious restaurants, have a coffee or beer in a cafe by the water or do a little shopping in the old town. Across the bay on the horizon we could see the Cap de Creus lighthouse, whose beam streamed into the house at night - it marks the eastern most point of Spain, is located on a desolate but beautiful lunar landscape and is definitely worth a visit.

In sum, a real treat we didn't want to end. We could not recommend it more highly.

Spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

This property is truly a dream come true. The view of Cadaques is absolutely unmatched. The property is nestled into the cliffs overlooking town and is remarkable.

The home is in amazing condition, with plenty of amenities all fully functional. Perhaps what I miss most was my morning routine of plunging in the pool every morning to wake up. The perfect remedy for jet lag and arguably the best perch in the world. I cannot imagine a better vacation.

The property is filled with hidden gems - secret gardens, lounge decks, hammocks, you name it all tucked away on different cliffside levels. While the house is immaculate on the inside, you will probably find yourself spending every moment, meal, coffee and drink outside on the terrace. A mesmerizing and magical location that is truly otherworldly.

Overall words cannot properly define what an amazing stay we had. The home is simply breathtaking. Don't take my word for it, please visit Casa Skyemar for yourself.

Beautiful home with fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

We chose Skymar for the location and the views which were wonderful at all times of day. You can see the sunrise over the sea and one night we were lucky to see the full moon rising . The house is impressive in its design and comfortable with huge windows which give a wonderful feeling of space and light.The kitchen is a good size and well equipped and there is a long dining table.

The dramatic location means that the drive up to the car park is steep and there are a good few steps up to the front door.

There are lovely wild walks on the hills behind the house and we enjoyed swimming on the beach nearby.The pool is great for a dip on hot days.We had good recommendations from the owner about restaurants and also recommend a visit to Dali's studio at Port Legat and a walk on Cap de Creus.

It was a fantastic and unforgettable holiday home.
