Very impressed with this beautifully situated, light and airy villa. I was met on arrival by a lady who looks after the villa and she was most helpful in explaining how appliances worked etc, very friendly too. The villa itself is set on the side of a hill, within the Gavarres and the views from the lounge and bedrooms are amazing. The pictures do not do the villa justice. There are so many terraces and in fact, each bedroom has its own. The lounge terrace was my favourite, offering great views over the trees and beyond, and was a wonderfully tranquil place to sit of an evening.
As the advert suggests, the bedrooms are indeed positioned enough away from each other to offer privacy. Each has its own en suite bathroom too. The lounge is large and equipped with comfortable seating . The kitchen is well equipped with all you could need too. There is an abundance of outdoor seating, cushions and parasols. On arrival, I found the villa was spotlessly clean too.
The villa is situated only a couple of miles from Calonge and a few miles from the beaches of Sant Antoni. Further along both ways are an abundance of delightful coves and coastal walks, perfect for walking. In fact as an enthusiastic hiker, I have to say this area is fantastic, a real network of trails offering mountain, coastal, woodland and river walks. My favourite beach is Castell, just after Palamos. Beautifully wild with coastal paths heading in both directions.
A nearby restaurant that I would recommend is Rio d'Oro, with beautiful gardens and an unsually designed interior. Sant Joan cafe in Palamos on the sea front makes the best hot chocolate. Oh, and there is a wonderful deli on the Palamos road heading towards Palafrugel. The market in Calonge on Thursday has superb fruit, veg and deli, which is considerably cheaper than the supermarket.
The owner provides excellent customer service and ensured I had Internet working given that I was working whilst on hoilday.
Having stayed in Calonge one a few occasions at various different villas, this one is definitely my favourite and I shall most certainly be returning.
A lovely light, airy, spacious and clean villa with peaceful outlook over the valley of trees. Both agent and owner were very helpful and obliging and the information pack in the house is well maintained with up to date leaflets. Visiting Barcelona from here is simple with a direct bus from St Antoni de calogne. Wonderful sun terraces and barbeque area under the trees which sadly had been damaged in recent snow falls this winter but were recovering well. all in all a villa to return to.
nous avons passé 15 jours excellent dans cette villa. elle et tres pratique et confortable, claire, lumineuse et bien equipée. Les espaces snt bien organisés (exerieur et interieur) et la région est magnifique bien entendu.
La propriètaire est tres agréable et charmante et de bon conseil.
Nous recommandons cette location à tous ceux qui aiment le calme, la mer (à 10 mn de voiture), les visites, et le farniente (3 terrasses pour se détendre)
We enjoyed the stay in this hous very much. It's situated on a very lovely hillside with a beautyfull outlook. It was a pleasure to sit on different terrasses. The house was very clean and it looks really like the pictures at internet. Our son was very happy to have an own room with an own shower and toilette. It was also very comfortable to have internet (and no problems with it). We liket to sit in the garden with all those beautifull flowers and plants. We have known this region before, but this villa is our favourite.
The first impression gives us Nieves. She explained everything in the house and she was very friendly and helpful. We hope to come back one day.
The villa is situated on a hillside, with lovely views. It was very spacious, with each room having its own terrace or patio. It is about 5 minutes drive from the beach, and not possible to get there without a car. It is a pity that there are not more restaurants within walking distance. In the hot weather, it would have been nice to have a pool - we had to watch next door cooling off!
The ants and lizards were a problem and a little more advice on how to keep them out on arrival would have been appreciated.
Thank you for renting us your villa, we found your agent and yourself very friendly and did enjoy our stay.

We would agree with the previous reviews. It is a lovely villa in delightful surroundings and all as described. Indeed, the books were a welcome extra and were well used and appreciated as the weather was cool and wet some days as it can be in Northern Spain in April. Unfortunately it was difficult to keep warm indoors as the central heating had been disconnected. A notice on the thermostat informed us 'disconnected, awaiting radiators'. The agent supplied extra bedding, portable heaters and contacted the owner for further guidance. The owner explained that it could take two days to heat up (underfloor heating). In fact it never did.
This was disappointing. It was our fourth visit to Cabanyes in April and we always look for a villa with central heating knowing that it could be needed at this time of the year.
We enjoyed the Medieval festivities in Calonge during Easter weekend and driving to the Medieval villages in the surrounding countryside. We found driving in this area very manageable and pleasant. There is also a good choice of walks from coastal paths to long distance hill walks.
The immediate area offers a good choice of supermarkets and outdoor markets.
Calonge, a medieval village about 2 km from the sea between Palamos and St Feliu de Guixols, in the north east area of Spain, has wonderful beaches, picturesque wooded rocky coves and snow covered Pyrenees within easy reach. Palamos a local administrative centre with a medieval centre and a working harbour about 5 miles from Calonge.
Vizcondado de Cabanyes, a private urbanisation outside Calonge, just over an hour from Barcelona and 30 km from Girona on excellent roads linking with the A7 Motorway north to France. The station at Caldes de Malavella, some 20km distant, provides a fast train service to Barcelona city and airport or north to Perpignan.
Set amongst cork oaks and established houses in the Gavarres foothills, the house is only 5 minutes from sandy beaches and rocky coves of St Antoni de Calonge. There is a Bar Restaurant in Cabanyes about 15 minutes walk down from the house. Daily markets are held at all local towns with excellent shops in Playa d’Aro and Palamos.
