About Stuart & Cam Balfour
We are a family who live in Brighton, the bustling city by the sea on the south coast of England. We have been coming to the Costa Brava for many years and like to make as many trips as possible to our very special 'home from home'. Quite simply we love the unique air, light and atmosphere that this part of the Costa Brava has to offer.
Why Stuart & Cam Balfour chose Santa Cristina d'Aro
We came to the area several times to view property with a view to purchase. We could never quite settle on a house which offered accommodation, position & views in equal measure - until we found this house. Here we have the most outstanding views out to the Med, access to some of the most beautiful beaches and bays you will find anywhere in the world and all within a short hop from the UK by plane, or an easy drive through France.
What makes this House unique
Position........... With outstanding countryside & sea views you have the opportunity to enjoy Catalonia, the countryside, it's cities and it's coastline from a base right in the heart of this very special part of the world.

Fabulous Villa – Everything you could want!
My family and I have recently spent a wonderful week at this villa. It is a very spacious and extremely comfortable villa with amazing views over the Costa Brava coastline and hills. There was plenty of space, inside and out for our family to relax. The property is equipped with everything we needed and the owners have thought of many things that you would not expect such as CDs, Books and DVDs. The pool and barbeque area is great and we needed to make a concerted effort to go out for the day. However, when you want to go out, the choice of places to visit is extensive. We liked the vibrant town of Playa d’Aro for its restaurants and shops. We also enjoyed Sant Pol and Lafranc for the beaches.
We took a trip to Girona old town which is well worth the visit and only 30 minutes by car from the villa. Next time we will visit Barcelona which is only an hour away.
We recommend this property for a great holiday and we will be back as soon as we get a chance.

A great Bolthole !
A lovely villa in a beautiful area, and a great base for us.
We stayed here for my 50th birthday with my wife and kids aged 20 and 23, and we all had a lovely relaxed holiday.
We had pre-conceived ideas of the Costa Brava as maybe not our cup of tea, but this is an ideal base for exploring the Costa Brava proper.
There are some quite beautiful beaches in the area that are frankly some of the best we have been on. With nice walks and clear blue sea it was very chilled. S'Agaro and Sa'Conca were our favourites.
We went to other towns and villages that were well worth the visit, and you need a car to get the most out of the trip.
Platja D'aro is 5-10 mins in the car & has a large beach, plus lots of shops, bars & restaurants. Classy town that we used mainly for shopping and going out to eat. Nothing rowdy or tacky in sight !
We also went to Barca just over an hour by train & Girona half an hour by car - both obviously wonderful places of interest.
The villa itself has all the amenities that anyone could need, inc nice pool, and when we stayed in, we would have a bbq on the terrace overlooking the hills and sea beyond. Then chill out and watch a bit of telly !
All in all we crammed quite a lot into our trip, but this is a great base to do it from, so that you also feel that you have had a relaxing time.
Fully recommend for all the reasons above - enjoy !

We visited in September 09, and would certainly take advantage of this marvellous property again. The facilities at the villa are top class, and our children enjoyed the pool immensely!
This property is near to a fantastic stretch of coastline, with great beaches and coves, all of which are safe and clean. Fabulous restaurants closeby too, when you've had enough of cooking.
Do get out and about and explore this area - you won't be disappointed.
Not to be missed!
We had a great time here. Luxury accommodation, fantastic views and the barbeque/pool area was terrific. Highly recommended by all our family. Brighton UK.
