About Rosa Regàs

I usually live in this house, as I am a writter I have plenty of time.

Rosa Regàs purchased this villa in 1975

Why Rosa Regàs chose Palafrugell

I bougt this house in 1975. It was only a very tiny farm, very ancient and very nice but not big enough for my family. So, little by little I enlarged it with rooms, cinema, swiming pool, etc., and filled up the land with trees and plants. My friends who came to see us or to spend a few days with us at the house, used to bring young plants instead of presents. It has given me a great satisfaction to see every one of them growing. Now, thirty-eight years later, the house is, big and confortable and situated in the middle of a lush park.

What makes this villa unique

From the first day I saw it I loved the Mediterranean view of the valley, the combination of its peaceful surroundings and its situation very near to the sea and villages.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Bonjour Rosa, Je prends (enfin) un peu de temps pour vous écrire et vous remercier encore de votre accueil et des magnifiques vacances que nous avons passé chez vous fin août !!! . Je vous remet notre review ici:

Nous sommes deux couples d amis avec des enfants de 7 et 5 ans, nous avons eu l'occasion de passer 15 jours dans les lieux durant le mois d août 2013.

La maison est très grande et très bien équipée, que ce soit au niveau du mobilier, de la cuisine, de la vaisselle,etc. La décoration est personnelle, soignée et permet à ceux qui prennent le temps de la regarder de découvrir des trésors.

La literie est très confortable, les salles de bain sont fonctionnelles.

Plusieurs terrasses agrémentent la maison, permettant de profiter du soleil et du jardin tout en restant à l'ombre des pergollas.

Le jardin est très grand pour le plaisir des enfants et des adultes, il est entièrement cloturé et comprend un terrain de football (des ballons sont mis à disposition).

La piscine est grande et dispose de plusieurs transats ainsi que d un coin ombragé.

Les enfants seront heureux chaque matin d aller donner à manger aux ânes de la maison (la prairie se trouve au fond du terrain), ainsi qu'aux nombreuses poules (qui disposent d un petit bois entièrement clos).

La maison est une oasis de verdure, un petit coin de paradis où il fait bon vivre et ce qui ne gache rien, la propriétaire est charmante"


We are two couples of friends with children aged 7 and 5 years, we have had the opportunity to spend 15 days in the premises during the month of August 2013.

The house is very large and well equipped, both at the furniture, the kitchen, dishes, etc.. The decor is personal, neat and allows those who take the time to look to discover treasures.The bedding is very comfortable, the bathrooms are functional.

Several terraces decorate the house to enjoy the sun and the garden while staying in the shade of pergollas.The garden is great for the enjoyment of children and adults, it is fully fenced and includes a football field (balls are available). The pool is large and has several sunbeds as well as a shady corner. Children will be happy to go every morning to feed the donkeys of the house (the meadow lies at the bottom of the field) as well as many hens (which feature a wood fenced).

The house is an oasis of greenery, a small corner of paradise where life is good, and what makes it even better, the owner is charming "

We embrace you!

L'endroit idéal.

  • 5 of 5

2ème année de location chez Rosa et séjour toujours aussi parfait. La maison est magnifique avec énormément de charme. La propriété est très grande avec un vaste jardin, la piscine, le terrain de foot et les ânes à proximité pour le bonheur des enfants. Nous étions 5 couples avec de nombreux enfants et tout le monde en a bien profité. Merci encore à Rosa, Roger, Mohamed pour l'entretien journalier (pain, légumes, piscine, fût de bières...) et à Mercedes que je recommande vivement pour goûter la cuisine locale et profiter pleinement des vacances.

Super sejour!

  • 5 of 5

Super sejour au Mas Gavatx!

La maison a du caractère et est pleine d'histoire. Elle est très pratique (grande cuisine, multiples terrasses et salon, tres grand jardin, piscine, wifi, potager, etc.) et adaptée aux grands groupes, notamment aux enfants.

Rosa et Roger sont très acceuillants et n'hésitent pas à vous raconter l'histoire des murs. Ils sont egalement à disposition tres rapidement en cas de problème.

Enfin, Mohamed (toujours disponible et qui apporte notamment chaque jour des legumes du jardin) et Mercedes la cuisinière (en option) permetrent de passer un super séjour. Seule remarque, les grands devront se baisser souvent, certaines portes etant basses.

En conclusion, c'est la meilleure location que nous ayons faite!

Magic stay in a real "family house"

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic stay in Mas Gavatx, beautiful old family house nested in a non less beautiful and peaceful garden!

Rosa (the owner) entirely opened her house, and with it, all her univers, history and family souvenirs through the so numerous photograpies, painting, books, drawings that cover the walls everywhere, or the nice times we had the chance to spend with her... Magical!

We were all charmed by the place, and all the more when we met Rosa. More than just a holiday, it was a real encounter.

The house is really big, and so well organised and distributed, that we never had the feeling we were so many people inside. There are a lot of varied resting areas (with big confortable sofas in each), independant terrases, different dining areas adapted according to the time of the day or the weather.

The garden is beautiful, huge, really relaxing, and perfectly maintained by Mohamed (who also took so good care of us, and was so kind with all the children!). Nice swimming pool where the children spent good part of their days, large football field, donkeys, and fantastic kitchen garden providing delicious vegetables daily (in addition to the eggs from the hen house)...

Moreover, we had the chance to enjoy the excellent services of the cook of the house, Mercedes, whom we had hired for the week. She is fantastic!

Was the listing description accurate? YES! (reality is even better!)

Was the property clean and well maintained? YES

Did the owner provide good customer service? YES

Would we recommend? YES (but not too loudly, because we want to be sure to have a place next year:)

Activities/attraction enjoyed? All the beautiful villages and beaches of the area are really nearby.

Thanx a lot Rosa, Mohamed, Merce and her husband, Roger!

We have spent one of our best holidays in this fantastic house, excellent located and with everything to do not only for adults also for children.

I would love to come back again to enjoy the gardens, the animals and the huge amount of culture that you can find in the bibliotheca of the house.

We have also had the opportunity to have an appetitive with the owner of the house and it was a trip to the history of Mas Gavatx.

I really recommend staying in Mas Gavatx where you can enjoy every moment of your holidays.

It’s a place to go with friends, with families, with every person that you want to spend a wonderful and unforgettable vacation.

A beautiful, characterful home.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very lovely relaxed week in the peace and quiet (apart from the donkey!). The kids loved the round pool, trampoline and football pitch, especially the family footie competition. Very friendly and helpful owner and family and the gardener/handyman was always on hand to sort out any problems and to provide fresh vegetables from the garden. Location was great - close to towns and beaches. A really lovely home.

Un petit paradis sur terre, entre mer et montagne

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé deux semaines de pur bonheur au Mas Gavatx.

Nous étions venus en famille (4 générations étaient présentes).

Tous, petits et grands, ont apprécié cette grande maison de famille, pleine de caractère et de témoignages de la vie de Rosa (la propriétaire) et de sa famille, ainsi que des espaces extérieurs propices aux jeux ou au repos. Tous ont également apprécié la piscine de forme circulaire et la compagnie des animaux (la chienne Aramis et 5 ânes).

Rosa et Roger nous ont accueilli ensemble le premier jour et nous ont présenté la propriété et les points d'intérêt autour de la propriété.

Tout au long de notre séjour, Rosa, qui habitait une petite maison proche de la maison principale, a fait preuve d'une grande disponibilité pour répondre à nos diverses sollications

et pour échanger avec nous tous, petits et grands, sur différents sujets, des plus futiles aux plus philosophiques !!!

Nous ne tenons pas rigueur à Rosa d'avoir été la complice de notre famille pour garder au secret l'anniversaire surprise organisé dans notre dos pour fêter nos 30 ans de mariage !!!

Petits plus à noter:

- la machine à laver la vaisselle dont le cycle dure 1mn30;

- la tireuse à bière dont le fût de 30l a permis de régulièrement rafraîchir le gosier des plus grands.

Toute la famille a quitté le Mas Gavatx avec un petit pincement au coeur.
