Sant Feliu de Guíxols Villa Rental Photos and Description

three bedroom three bathroom great garden fast wifi in the perfect position

This super villa has lovely sea views, walking distance of the beach and large salt water heated pool .

Well-being perfectly describes the romantic ambiance of this Villa with its quiet south facing, spectacular location overlooking the bay of S’Agaro with views up the coast to Palamos and down to Sant Feliu. Unlike many other villas L'Esplai is not in an urbanisation, and is truly its own space. A beautiful private garden with a large heated salt water swimming pool with diving board, a large round oak table in the garden is perfect for outside entertaining and barbecues. This area is flood lit up at night. The property offers 3 bedrooms (two en-suite and a twin/double with a separate bath/shower room ). The kitchen is fully equipped and is perfect for self-catering. There is a covered verandah for dining. The living area is tastefully furnished and decorated and provides satellite TV. There is a private sun deck upstairs on the roof that cannot be overlooked. Both the beautiful town of Sant Feliu and its beach and amenities are within walking distance.

Calm tranquility, within walking distance of the beach, pool and roof terrace for la fresco dining. Now with brand new salt water heated swimming pool. The ultimate swimming experience, crystal clear water with no synthetic chemicals, leaves you feeling refreshed and healthy

It is possible to reach Barcelona in an hour and absorb the cosmopolitan clique of one of Europe’s most fashionable cities- shop to drop alongside some of Europe’s most fashionable people - where the influence of Gaudi seems to pervade on every corner. Salvador Dali was also from this area and his museum is a short drive to Figueres, or visit pretty Cadaques where he spent most of his creative years. Even the contrast in language and culture can be sampled by driving over the French border which is a little more than fifty miles north of this special location.

Some of the best sailing in Europe is off the Costa Brava, and the Medes Islands is a marine national park providing great scuba diving. There is no shortage of activity for all the family with the Costa Brava’s famous beaches and coves, a water-park, several carting tracks, cycle routes, mountain walks, butterfly park and much much more.

Golf: The Costa Brava boasts 9 excellent golf courses with some of the best in Europe. You can play from March to November. All are within 1 hour's drive. 1. Peralada - Open course on flattish terrain. Design is resort-style and small olive trees line most of the fairways. 2. Torremirona - In beautiful rolling countryside with panoramic views overlooking the Pyrenees, constructed as an “American resort style course” with big greens. 3. Girona - Sweeping valleys of forest pines and umbrella trees, with mostly elevated tee positions. 4. PGA Golf De Catalunya - A Championship layout 5. Emporda - Among Europe’s top 50 courses. American style with 3 contrasting loops of nine holes start with an outstanding links, followed by two superb forest courses. 6. Serres de Pals - Quite different from most of the others. It lies on the typical flattish rolling farmland countryside of the Baix Emporda, with few trees and strategic doglegs. 7. Pals - One of Spain’s finest courses.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Oliver's house was one of the best experiences one could have. It is in a quiet location within walking of town. Our group of 3 couples each had a great bedroom. It was cool and quiet and we loved every minute. Oliver was a great host and took care of everything efficiently and well. One of the best ever.

Great Location, beautiful views

My family and i stayed several nights at this property and enjoyed every moment. The pool was wonderful and access to the beach was just a short walk. The house was beautiful and very clean, with comfortable beds. I would recomend this property to anyone.

A marvellous garden and pool to spend your holida

  • 4 of 5

We came from the wintry Alps of Bavaria (Germany) to Sant Feliu and were three weeks in April in the villa l `Esplai and have spent there marvellous early summer days. The house lies in a quiet area on a fantastic place. We stayed nearly every day in the nice garden by the big pool. The water was even warm enough (for me - 20°C without heating) to swim in and that in April. For someone who wants to live outside in the nature it is a wounderful house. The terrace on the roof offers spectacular views. Oliver is a nice guy who is interested in the wellbeing of his guests.

I think we will come back although the house itself needs a renovation.

Lovely villa with really special gardens and pool

  • 5 of 5

We had a really great holiday in this lovely house at the height of the heatwave in July. The accommodation was perfect for 3 couples (ourselves, 2 grown children and their partners) and we really appreciated the spaciousness of the villa inside and out. The garden and pool area are really lovely and there are several terraces and patios around the house where one could find shade or sun at any time of day. The piece-de-resistance has to be the roof terrace with its fantastic sea views, perfect for early evening drinks! Given the heat it was great to be able to open everything up and get a breeze through the house (not possible in all properties!). The kitchen has everything keen cooks could want and so we enjoyed cooking the local produce very much. We did eat out a lot too, and the owners, Oliver and Janice, who are very friendly and approachable and helpful gave us some very good advice on where to eat locally. Indeed they are impressively knowledgeable on the area and we had some excellent days out following their suggestions. There is good walking and cycling locally which we intended to do but such was the heat that we mostly swam in the pool and sea and lazed. There's always another year! We enjoyed finding our 'inner children' on the 'bouncy castle' type apparatus in the sea at S'Agaro and more grown up visits to Barcelona, the ruins at Empuries, plus various Dali museums and sites. This holiday was just what we all needed to recharge and this villa was the perfect setting.

Beautiful villa and garden

  • 4 of 5

We had one of our best holidays here, the garden, pool and views from the balcony and the house itself are wonderful and it is such a great spot at the top of the hill overlooking the bay of S'Agaro and Sant Feliu.

All of the bedrooms were really comfortable, the kitchen was small but had all the essentials and the bathrooms all were fine, it felt very large. Wifi was v helpful as well as the fans at night.

Oliver and Janice were very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. We would definitely stay here again, I loved the aspect in the garden, morning to evening sun added to the charm of the villa itself plus the roof terrace with the views of the twinkly lights of Sant Feliu at night were unforgettable,

The town itself is easily reached though we did take the car most of the time! It was August! The beach at Sant Pol at the bottom of the hill was our favourite and the restaurants there, Barbieri - we ate there 3 x I think. Altogether a great base for relaxing.

Owner's Response: Wow - thank you for such a smashing review! I am delighted that you enjoyed your holiday in Sant Feliu (SÁgaro) so much and have taken the time to tell us, that is refreshing in this day and age and it is so appreciated. This is such a nice spot on the Costa Brava and we love it dearly, this is the sort of response that makes me glad and proud that we can share it with people. I truly believe that we have some of the best beaches, views, activity centers, culture, restaurants and best of all climate anywhere in Spain, and this sort of review reinforces this belief. Thanks again.
