About Nigel

Hola !

Welcome to Casa Cal Domino. I retired to the Costa Brava in Catalonia in 2004 to take advantage of the excellent weather and quiet outdoor lifestyle that we are fortunate to have here and this lifestyle is very much reflected in the style, peace and tranquility of the Villa. I personally look after my clients and I am on always contactable should you need any advice or help with the language. When you arrive, I will be at the Villa to welcome you and I personally ensure that the Villa is prepared to our high standards.

Nigel purchased this villa in 2004

Why Nigel chose Baix Emporda

Casa Cal Domino is perfectly situated just 3km to the fantastic beaches that make the Costa Brava such a popular holiday destination and also nestled in the foothills of the Gavarres natural park, a protected 28,000 Ha forest giving instant access for the hundreds of kms of hiking and biking trails. We are just 90 kms from the bright lights of Barcelona, accessible by high speed AVE in just 38 minutes. The nearest airport is on the outskirts of Girona, a charming medieval city that would be a holiday destination in its own right if it weren't for its more famous neighbour, Barcelona.

The Villa is modern, airy and well designed to take advantage of the sun from first thing in the morning to early evening allowing the Villa to cool naturally before night time. The views over Calonge and the Mediterranean Sea are outstanding and the Villa's terraces have been designed to allow you to soak up the atmosphere with full sun, or shade as you wish. We have a 4x8 heated infinity pool and tropical hardwood pool deck leading to a wooden shingle covered pergola and sofa area, hammock and exterior heated hot tub.

The Villa has 45Mbps superfast WIFI broadband internet which also gives you free access to the hundreds of WIFI hotspots throughout the Calonge valley and along the coastline from St Feliu to Palamós. We have a modern large flatscreen LCD TV with gaming connections, HD DVD player, iPod dock and CD radio.

All the rooms have comfortable beds and appropriate duvets for the time of year and the Villa is fully double glazed, centrally heated with an additional log burner for the winter months. For the hikers and bikers, there is a separate secure roadside area for storage, cleaning and maintenance of bikes and golfing equipment etc and large Sauna to help to ease tired muscles when you come back to the Villa after a days activities.

What makes this villa unique

We are environmentally friendly ! We provide separate areas for recycling and the pool filtration system if fully powered by solar PV cells. The domestic hot water is provided by two large solar water heaters and automatically topped up by the electric grid should you need it ensuring that there is always hot water. The pool heating system is by a low energy consuming heat pump which maintains the pool temperature at a minimum of 26ºC from April to October.

On arrival I will personally show you around the Villa explaining how everything works and take as much time as you require to be comfortable in your home away from home. You will find an extensive welcome pack waiting for you, a large fruit basket, beers, wines and Cava, pate's, hams, cheeses, milk, eggs and bread along with soft drinks for the children, a few local delicacies depending what is in season at the time and some croissants, pastries and fresh oranges for breakfast the next day. This compliments our larder stocked with everyday kitchen items so that your first trip to the supermarket will be only for things that you want and not things that you need.

I am on call via mobile and email during working hours should you need any advice regarding the Villa or just would like to know which restaurant we recommend. I am also on call 24/7 for any emergencies that you may have either at the Villa or whilst away sightseeing.

At prior notice, I am available to show you the tapas bars of Palamós, escort you around the greenway cycle routes of Catalunya or for the more adventurous I can show you the coastal walks or the high Pyrenees for a days hiking or skiing. For local activities, there is no charge for our time, for trips to the Pyrenees and further afield, there will be an extra charge to cover fuel etc.

Our goal is to make sure that you have a great holiday. Ask us for our website and see what our previous guests say about us.

St Antoni de Calonge
Car: recommended

Casa Cal Domino is just 3 km from the nearest beach at Sant Antoni de Calonge which is awarded a Blue Flag for cleanliness and water clarity. We are located on a small hill on the doorstep of the Gavarres Natural Park, a 28,000 Ha protected forest stretching from Calonge to Girona. To the south east, we have views over the medieval village of Calonge and its Castle and outstanding views of the Mediterranean Coastline. Calonge is a small village that has supermarkets, bars and shops and a weekly street market. To the south, the larger town of Platja d'Aro is 7 km away with long sandy beach and bars, night clubs and major shops. To the north, also 7 km away, you'll find the fishing port of Palamos which has its old center filled with authentic tapas bars and the fish market. There are fantastic walking and biking trails directly from the front door or dozens of Blue Flag beaches to choose from close to the Villa. Skiing in the Pyrenees is only 2 hours away by car, and many activities close by such as the aqua park, sailing, horse riding, cycling, museums in Figueres and Girona and some of the best International standard golf courses in Europe.

The Costa Brava has an iconic coastline famous for its beautiful sandy beaches and small bays. Near to the Villa you can rent Kayacks and snorkel the pristine coastline and protected marine parks at Cap de Creus and Illes de Medas or rent a boat for the day and picnic in an isolated bay.

Catalunya though has so much more to offer than the beaches. We have Castell Sant Ferran near Figueres, the best preserved Napoleonic fortress in Europe and the Greek and Roman ruins at Empuries plus many perfectly preserved medieval villages (Peratallada, Monells, Madremanya, Palau Sator, Pals) on our doorstep. Throughout Catalunya, there are hundreds of Neolithic and Iberian ruins plus breathtaking views from thousands of kms of well maintained hiking trails in the Low Pyrenees and national parks at Monserrat, Garroxta Volcanic National Park, Cap de Creus and Montseny. One of the most famous walks here is the Cami de Ronda, the coastal path that stretches from Blanes in the South all the way to the French Border. The best stretches of this old smugglers path are found right on our doorstep from Platja d'Aro to Platja de Pals.
