About Joan & Andy Ball
We are a retired English Couple and we built this house in 2007 on land adjacent to our house where we have lived full time for 13 years when we are not travelling the world. We have one daughter at University in England although she did go to school in the area. We speak Spanish and Catalan.
Joan & Andy Ball purchased this Villa in 2007
Why Joan & Andy Ball chose Calonge
We love the location thats why we live here. The beautiful mountain views and the proximity to the beach. Also there is so much to visit in the immediate area. Lots of biking and walking trails. Lots of culture and the restaurants are wonderful.
What makes this Villa unique
The mixture of sea and mountains is a wonderful benefit. A relaxing way of life and not loud, drunken people. Its very family orientated and is mainly Catalan and Spanish which we love. There are so many things to do in the area. We love our little part of Catalonia.

Great family holiday villa
House is as described, well equipped with lovely pool and views. Very relaxing. The owners and Carla couldn't be more helpful.
Large comfortable Villa in a quiet location
Spent a relaxing long stay holiday in Calonge in this spacious well equipped villa. Weather was excellent and the salt water pool was much kinder to your skin and swimwear! The owners are very friendly and helpful and we would recommend this villa to large family groups.The local week long festival in nearby Palamos in mid June had many interesting events including a non stop fair and the parade of the Giants of Palamos
Fantastic holiday, superb villa
The villa is situated in a beautiful peaceful location in the maintains with superb views across the hills out to sea. The villa is extremely spacious, really well equipped, well furnished and the pool area is great with the sun on it all day! We had an amazing holiday which was made even better by the accommodation. Its only 10 mins drive to either Palamos or Platja with lots of restaurants and bars to chose from, and there are also several supermarkets only 5-10 minutes away. The owners were extremely helpful before and during our stay and the property was very clean and tidy when we arrived. We would certainly recommend this villa to stay and will return again. A restaurant that are definitely worth a visit is Restaurant Don Quijote in Platja, its amazing, unfortunately we found this gem on our last night! its a real authentic Spanish restaurant which doesn't look anything special from the front but opens up when inside to a large open court yard with a open grill so you can see you food being cooked, the food was superb, you have to try the pinchos!!
IDEAL FAMILY VILLA WITH PANORAMIC VIEWS
Just spent an enjoyable week in Calonge.The villa is very spacious and comfortable with plenty of room for a large family group. It is well furnished and equipped. It has large bedrooms with comfy beds and four fully tiled large ensuites with walk in showers. A big plus is the recently installed high speed internet connection which is ideal for receiving IPTV.
The owners Joan and Andy were very friendly and helpful and live nearby. We have just booked a long stay family holiday for next year.
Good location - selective description
Good location but the property is tired and furnishings well used. The decking is need of maintenance and poolside furniture is unusable due to age. Change of sheets and towels never occurred and the wifi was never up for more than 10 mins. The area is lovely and the view great but be prepared to be disappointed as the description is selective at best. Also the deposit is not automatically refunded you have to remember to chase, and chase and well a month after returning I've still not received it!
We always welcome and encourage constructive truthful feedback from our clients and pride ourselves on keeping our property well maintained and the furnishing up to date and in good working order.
We have received twenty 5 star reviews and one 4 star review over the past seven years and we are aghast at these negative comments. The latest 5 star review was only 2 weeks before this clients arrival.
We believe that this review was in retaliation to our contacting the clients regarding the terrible/disgusting state in which they left our villa and the damage caused. One bathroom had vomit all over the walls and floor, rubbish and food was left everywhere which caused insect infection, furniture had been mistreated and some linen had to be discarded as it was so dirty. The villa had to be deep cleaned at an extra cost to ourselves.
We ask all our guests to the contract us if there are any issues so we can resolve them or replace or repair items immediately. No contact was made by these clients, including no comments about the internet.
As clearly outlined in our contract clean linen is available if requested, which it was not. The outside wood furniture was purchased in 2013/2014.
We are saddened by this untruthful review and ask future clients to consider all the other fantastic reviews we have received for our villa and also to note that we already have 2 repeat renters for next year.
Wir haben zwei wirklich fantastische Ferienwochen in einem wunderschönen Haus erlebt, die Beschreibung traf voll und ganz zu, die Kinder hatten mit dem Pool und dem sehr angenehmen, nicht gechlorten Wasser, viel Spaß.
Die Umgebung, der super einsame Strand und nicht zuletzt traumhaft schönes Sonnenwetter rundeten den Urlaub perfekt ab.
Wir hatten absolut keine Probleme mit einem sehr freundlichen Vermieter!
Ja, dieses Haus können wir nur empfehlen!
