About the property

Surrounded by 20.000m2 private garden and forest, close to everything + beaches

Your holiday will be a new experience. A source for inspiration. Ideal for musicians, painters & writers or simply decompress. I've had family all summer around with 15 people plus dogs and cats. All possible. Surrounded by all kinds of activities, sports, biking, horse riding, tennis, golf, quads, scuba diving, waterjets, sailing and parties, all close. Located in the heart of the most beautiful coast on earth. And I must say I’ve seen some places. Costa Brava means ‘wild coast’. And it sure is wild here. Very green landscape, very blue skies, crystal clear water, idyllic white beaches, salmon rocks and beautiful little villages at sea. There are many little beaches, you can choose a different one everyday. Llafranch is one of the most picturesque villages of the Costa Brava. Together with Callela and Tamariu it forms the heart of the Golden Triangle. The absolute favourite for Barcelona natives. With only 2 hotels and no mass tourism it is the home of high class connoisseurs. Enjoy!

The village and around....: The village is in an area of exceptional beauty with forest, mountains, historic villages and an unspoilt coastline. This area has escaped the high rise developments of southern Spain. Well-maintained coastal paths link the local small sheltered beaches and bays providing some stunning sea views. the summerwinds offers excellent windsurfing. Nearby towns such as Tamariu, Calella, Pals, Begur, Palafrugell, and La Bisbal are thriving places, many foodmarkets, crafts and pottery. You can take a boat to the protected Iles Medes Reservate - a protected sea environment for unique species of fish and bird life. Gerona has a wonderful Roman & Medieval town centre - a photographer's delight. It's stylish, yet still provides excellent value in the restaurants and shops.

More about the region...: The area of Baix Emporda: Baix Emporda, the area around Palafrugell, Calella, Llafranc andPals, is a region of great environmental interest with national parkland immediately to the west (Gavarres Massif) and to the north towards the coastal town of L'Escala. The Greec/Roman archaeological site at Empuries is a national treasure. It's really worth resisting the beaches on a couple of days of your holiday to explore the surrounding places of interest. For gardeners, a must is the Cap Roig Botanical gardens where you'll see the most important flora of the Mediterranean. In July and August Calella has a jazz festival in a superb outdoor setting overlooking the sea. Pals and Peratallada are well known for its Medieval construction, restaurants and an easy walk to enjoy local specialities and leisurely outdoor eating.

Swimming/diving/sailing/walking...: You'll find an excellent selection of beaches all along the coast right down to Palamos. Our nearest small beaches and pretty bays are: Llafranch, Calella, Sa Riera, Sa Tuna, Aguablava, Fornells, Tamariu and Aigua-Xelida. Our nearest large beach is llafranch which is one of the most beautiful bays. There are 3 diving schools and boat rentals in Llafranch. Good snorkelling is found all along this stretch of coast as the water is cristal clear and the sea life thrives. There are many additional sports/leisure activities available in the area, and very good trecking/walking with well signed paths. Sailing, motor boats, jets, bikes, etc. can be hired from several boatyards. Our house has a list of phone numbers and will make a booking for you if you ask.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We are delighted with our stay in this beautiful villa. It was exactly as the images suggested (you can't say that of spme of the houses we rented before). Indeed, the villa, village and beaches are the best we have seen sofar. The house is very comfortable, clean and complete, and the sense of peace in the middle of beautiful nature was fantastic. The owner took great care of our family and left us the feeling of a complete holiday. Although the house in not directly located at the sea, the 800m walk was no problem at all, and the fact of not being in the centre was an advantage to us. A great place to be. Recommended!

Un vrai coin de Paradis

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé un séjour très agréable. La villa est très confortable, très propre et très spacieuse. C'est vraiment un coin de Paradis au milieux de la nature. La propriétaire est à l'écoute du moindre problème. Quand nous sommes arrivés tout était prévu: la corbeille de fruit, le vin, l'eau, du savon vaisselle des produits ménagés, bref tout pour reporter ses achats. Je loue chaque année une villa mais c'est de loin celle qui corresond bien au descriptif. Je vous recommande donc ce coin de Paradis.

What a great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a location to celebrate my husband’s 60th birthday, and we found it. It is an incredible place. When we first entered the house we immediately experienced the warm and cozy atmosphere. The house is wonderful, and equipped with everything you need. There are several seating areas, a beautiful barbeque area, a nice pool and extraordinary views. We had a great time, it truly was a privilege to stay there. I can recommend this house to everyone.

On behalf of the Dragt family,

Wow, what an amazing place. We stayed at the villa last year in June with our teenage daughter and our friends. We had a great time. This place is like heaven on earth. It's close to everything but in the same time secluded. No neighbors around, surrounded by beautiful nature. We were walking to the beach just 15 min. The garden was so well maintained with flowers, bushes and olive trees. We had plenty of lounge chairs, hammock and a nice in-ground pool. The house was very clean and very convenient for 2 families. A beautiful kitchen fully equipped made us feel like home. A nice grill outside were we cooked fresh fish from the market and enjoyed a nice glass of wine on the terrace overlooking the beautiful garden. The owner greeted us with a bottle of wine, fruits and a lot of useful info about the place and the city. Thank you Sjoerd for everything we had an amazing time.

We rented your magnificent villa as our first time experience to book a villa via internet. So we were a little worried if everything worked out. We must say on behalf of all our famliy (7) that we regret nothing. We had a fantastic time and we will come back for sure next year. The house is supercozy and has everything, really like having your own house. And the gardner comes every 2 days to take care of the pool and garden. The region is really superb, all green, many little bays and beaches and superclean water. One of the best, if not the best, coastlines of europe. We love this paradise. Thank you for taking care of us! fam. steffen. Bremen. august 2010.

In reality the house looks better then the pictures, which you can't say from many houses. It really is a paradise here, a miracle that this still exists nowadays. A lot of privacy and great views. Highly recommended

Golf: The area is excellent for golf, with several courses within 10-20 minutes. Emporda, with 27 holes and a swimming pool for non-golfers, and Pals are nearby and very good. Serres de Pals is rather new and not yet mature. Golf Costa Brava at Santa Christina D'Aro has dramatic views and is testing in golf and physical terms with many climbs and descents. The best course, though a little further afield, is the PGA Golf Club de Catalunya, a championship course but worth the trip. Located on the N11 between Girona and Barcelona at Caldes de Malavella (30 mins).
