Where and what?:

To try and capture the feel of Villa Tranquila and put it into words is difficult but understated luxury and home from home do seem to cover it. The name is a bit of a give-away - the English equivalent is ‘tranquil house’ and really that says it all! However the secret to choosing this particular villa for your holiday, and this beautiful area, is that with the magnificent Costa Brava on your doorstep and all that it offers, combined with Villa Tranquila means that you have the magical mix of basking in sumptuous comfort and then choosing to be as laid back or as active as you wish. The mountains or the beach? an afternoon exploring the old town of Girona or perhaps some serious shopping in Palamos or Platja d'Aro? A jazz evening or a barbecue under the stars? What about a day trip to Barcelona? The choice goes on and on.

Villa Tranquila - the exterior:

The Villa is individually designed in a Modern Farmhouse Luxury Style with the aim to satisfy all tastes and needs, taking into account all age groups and their individual desires thereby creating the perfect holiday retreat. The Villa is approached by a long wide paved drive with a secure locking gate giving ample parking with extra for a car/boat/caravan at the side. A path winds its way past a large Weeping Willow tree and a mature flowering rockery towards the private barbecue and a relaxing area of a swing seat and sun chairs. There is access to the kitchen, lounge and Sundowner room or following the path further through the garden you reach a dining area for meals al fresco and the 8 METRE salt/chlorine mix swimming pool. Further on there are cushioned sun loungers, a large shaded terrace area, an outdoor pool shower and another dining area with umbrella placed in the shade of a pine tree. Lawns are laid to the side with plenty of further sun loungers, a fixed 3 metre umbrella and full size ping pong table.

Villa Tranquila - the interior:

The design of this Villa is unique in the fact that the spacious layout gives privacy for all the occupants. From the main entrance there is access to Bedroom 3 on the ground level with its own private bathroom and access through double doors to the garden and stunning mountain views. Also from here is a beautiful tower holding a sweeping tiled stairway with a few easy steps up giving access to Bedroom 1 and 2 and also Bathroom 1 on the first floor. Louvre doors give privacy to the occupants here and also security if there are young children in the party. Each bedroom has its own private terrace with Bedroom 1 (Master Bedroom) having double doors to a covered terrace of two chairs and breathtaking views and Bedroom 2 having a wrought iron table/chairs and a sun blind and the same fantastic vista! From the main entrance, and a few steps downwards you reach the dining kitchen, the lounge (40 inch HDTV), Hi Fi (iPod/MP3 cable for Hi Fi supplied) and dining area and also the Sundowner room with a PC station and computer desk (free WiFi) and printer. All have double doors to the pool/garden. (40MB Wifi and UK / European TV)

Judy Anderson purchased this villa in 2005

Why Judy Anderson chose Baix Emporda

We purchased this property after spending many happy holidays in Calonge and had it built and designed to our own specification. The Baix Emporda region is simply stunning, the people, the things to do just make it the perfect place to spend time whether it is to spend time on the beautiful beaches, be active exploring the nearby mountains or just to chill out in this beautiful Villa drinking the wine from the local vineyards and enjoying a barbeque - it is just perfect !

What makes this villa unique

The individual design of the layout of the Villa is ideal for families, romantic breaks for just two people and also for all ages. Villa Tranquila has fantastic views being set on a mountain hillside, but has the added advantage of being suitable for everyone as it has very few steps both inside and outside. Access to the garden and swimming pool is very easy and there is a terrace which can be locked to be able to keep young children safe. The property is private with many areas to sit peacefully with lawned gardens and a fully established garden.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Judy,

Many thanks for all of your assistance and that of Samantha who made us all feel really welcome.

A fantastic, well kept villa with a super friendly agent who gave us loads of valuable tips about the area as she lives there. We had a fabulous stay and really enjoyed the facilities the villa offered, especially the lovely pool. We hope to visit again.

Lovely and relaxing ...........

  • 4 of 5

Seven of us stayed at Villa Tranquila in June, 2016 and thoroughly enjoyed it. The three bedrooms are of good size and all contain a private, outdoor setting. The living/dining room area worked well for our group and although the kitchen was a tad small we managed just fine. Our favorite setting was the pool area. The views from there were beautiful and the water very refreshing. It was an awesome place to relax after an excursion.

Samantha, the manager of Villa Tranquila was excellent! She was very helpful with directions and suggestion for places to eat and see. Our favorite outing was to Castell d'Emporda near La Bisbal - a must see! The views and restaurant food were fabulous!

My only negative is that there is very little in the way of restaurants/pubs in walking distance of the house. It would be difficult to get around without a car. Overall, I highly recommend staying here.

This property over-delivers in every way.

  • 5 of 5

This is quite simply one of the nicest VRBO or AirBNB experiences I've had to-date. Coming from a long drive from Paris via San Sebastian, Alquisar, and Barcelona, we finally arrived at this villa for 4 days of complete relaxation before returning to Paris.

This property delivered in so many ways... perfect location, utterly peaceful, full of small, thoughtful comforts (plenty of books, cookware, pool toys, and useful things that would have been a pain to buy), and with plenty of room for at least 6 if not 8 people (we were only 4). The highlights are an absolutely marvelous pool, which was crystal clear on our arrival, and is meticulously maintained (the pool man checked in during our stay); the view, which was breathtaking to the Med; and the 7 minutes by car to the beach; extremely high quality internet - quite surprised, and I was able to actually work most days in the evening without a hitch.

We also discovered some excellent gems by actually reading Judy's "What to do" and "How things work" binders provided. The fish market which opens at 5pm is absolutely not to be missed and would have never occurred to us otherwise. The produce there is second to none if you like seafood. Cooking it is beyond simple as its quality is such that nothing but olive oil and salt is required for most items. We made it to Girona in under 40 minutes, fascinating town with a deep history, and otherwise the house was so comfortable that it sapped our motivation to wonder very far from the pool :)

Would definitely stay here again, and highly recommend it to others.

Stunning views in peaceful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

The Villa is absolutely beautiful, very spacious and fully equipped with everything needed for a family getaway, furnished to a very comfortable standard. Breathtaking views from the bedroom windows and terraces as well as the pool area and well kept gardens. The area is very peaceful and the villa is not overlooked at all though the neighbors are close enough that you feel secure. The agent is very helpful and gave us great advise on beaches to visit and local transport. Plenty of bars, restaurants and grocery stores in easy reach and the nearest beach, about a 5 min drive, is lovely with crystal blue sea. There are a couple of restaurants and a shop within reasonable walking distance, though many more accessible easily and quickly by car.

Excellent

  • 4 of 5

The villa was lovely. It was very clean and had all the facilities we wanted plus more. For example we were given a welcome pack of wine and beer and had use of a washing machine and hairdryers which was very useful. The latest cation of the villa was great and the outside area including pool and table tennis table were brilliant. We would recommend a holiday here to everyone.

All that was promised

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect from the first contact with Judy to meeting Samantha the managing agent to staying at Villa Tranquila. A home from home with everything you need and more for a perfect holiday. Villa Tranquila is spacious, clean, has quality furnishings, is private, quiet with beautiful gardens and a pool that you will never want to get out of. Close to the village, places of interest, mountains and the beach but far enough away from the madding crown.

Thank you Judy
