We have returned from an absolutely amazing holiday here. The house is well prepared for guests, aircon through living quarters and bedrooms. Plenty of room, 4 bedrooms, 2 reception rooms, a garage full of toys, football table, pool table and gym equipment. A trampoline, hammock, bbq area and badminton court all available for use and a LOVELY swimming pool.
We read all of the reviews before booking and have to be honest we were worried about the road noise. However there was no problem at all with road noise. During the day we didn't notice it (we had 2 small children in our party of 6) and at night I can honestly say we didn't notice any road noise.
Dolors (the owner) was so helpful and kind. It was a dia de fiesta (festival day) when we arrived so the shops were closed and Dolors contacted us to ask what we would like from the shops in advance so that we didn't go hungry. I cannot express how lovely Dolors was, she made us feel very welcome.
We travelled to visit family in the surrounding villages and visited many beaches. All within a 20-30 minute drive from the house. The airport is a maximum of 15 minutes away.
We had some family who live locally visit us and spent time at the pool and had a bbq, there is so much room and so much for the kids to do, everyone loved the place.
There are plenty of restaurants near the house. Our favourite was Can Mascort, delicious meat cooked on the grill and home made delicious catalan cooking.
There are 2 supermarkets in Quart and a bread shop (forn de pa) delicious bread! There is also a good butcher.
This was, without doubt, one of the best holidays we have had in the North of Spain.
Queria dicir algo en español también. La casa es increible, tiene de todo, aire acondicionado, la casa es muy amplia, tiene un garaje abajo con futbolin, billards, jugetes etc. Hay una area de barbecoa, una hamaca, una buena piscina y un campo con un red de badminton. Los niños y los adultos lo pasaron de bomba.
La dueña Dolors es un encanto. Era muy sympatica y estaba dispuesta de ayudarnos con cualquier cosa.
La casa esta muy bien situada solo 15 minutes del aeropuerto, 10 minutes de Girona y unos 20—30 minutos de las playas. Hay dos supermercados en Quart y una panederia (el forn de pa) el pan es buenisimo. Hay una carniceria también que esta muy bien.
Hay mucha seleccion de restaurantes cerca de la casa. Unos de nuestro favoritos fue Can Mascort, carne a la brasa y comida casera.
Good convenient accommodation..... shame about the road!
The house is adequate for all the needs of a group or large family. Dolors the host is very keen to make your stay as comfortable as possible and address any issues you may have immediately. When we booked the description said 4 bathrooms when in fact there were 2 and a toilet in the basement. We were offered a full refund but it was too late to change accommodation and the details have now been updated and the information is accurate. The interior furnishings are a bit outdated but it is well maintained and clean and absolutely fine for a holiday let. The kitchen is well equipped with a large table we enjoyed dining at. The sun lounger covers were all ripped and worn but I am sure will be replaced very quickly as Dolors seems keen to make everything as perfect as she can for your stay. Unfortunately for us the road noise was too much for a relaxing stay and put me off wanting to return to the house. It lessened at the weekend but we couldn’t sit out at the terrace overlooking the road or relax in peace by the pool.... and a couple of nights it did keep me awake.... fortunately the beds were very comfortable! Unfortunately the situation of the house can’t be changed with regards to the busy road but for a big family there is lots of space and games and equipment and you possibly wouldn’t worry about the road noise! We were out cycling all day anyway for which the area is superb with a variety of wonderful rides and beautiful scenery whether it be coast or country or vineyards cycling through some beautiful villages and and will return to the province in the future.
Perfect for a cycling holiday
For a group of 7 cyclists this villa is excellent. Large kitchen/diner plus 2 other communal rooms. The website says 4 bathrooms, but there are in fact 3? 2 in the accommodation and 1 in the garage area below. Not really a problem for us but the website needs reviewing. Great for us was the large, secure, garage area beneath the accommodation which was ideal for the assembly and storage of bikes and all associated equipment. It's located close to many of Girona's classic climbs and cycling roads so we rarely had to ride through Girona city. Shopping is adequate just 2 kilometres south into Quart.
Some reviews have mentioned the road noise. Yes, it is close to a busy main road but the house is equipped with good double glazing and roller shutters on the windows so for us it was not a problem. Balance that with it's proximity to beautiful open countryside and empty roads.
Our host was always available on WhatsApp and swiftly attended to a couple of minor problems we had.
All in all a good holiday and the villa is recommended.
A perfect house for families.
We stayed here for a week - we were two families with three children between us. The place is absolutely ideal for children, there is so much for them to do - swimming pool, trampoline, swings, football goals, volleyball net, basketball hoop, a huge garden (more like a field!) for them to run around in. The garage, which is the entire ground floor of the house, is enormous, and is a paradise for children! There's table tennis, table football, pool, ride-on toys and so much more. There's even a sauna, though with the heat of the summer this wasn't something we used! The owners really have thought of everything a family might need. The house itself is really well equipped, at no point was there anything we needed that the house didn't have! It feels like a home rather than a holiday house, which was exactly what we wanted. The temperature of the house is excellent. There is air conditioning throughout, and it was a particularly hot week when we were there, but we were always totally comfortable in the house. The location is great, as there is easy access to so many beautiful places in Catalonia. We visited Figueres, Banyoles, Cadaqués, Palafrugell, all of which are an easy distance away. It's true that the house is situated close to a main road, but the property and grounds are well sheltered by tall trees and it is totally enclosed with a strong, sturdy gate at the entrance to the property. Inside the house, there is no noise from the road. All in all we had a great holiday here and would gladly return another year. We were all disappointed to come home and get back to reality!
We are very thankful about your review. Every year we try to improve our house and make it more confortable for our costumers. When we succeed we feel specially happy and proud. We know how importants are the summer holidays and we always work hard to accomplish our costumer's expectations. We wish you a good going back to the rutines and we wish to see you by our home again.
Great holiday destination
We were looking for a sunny holiday in the winter time and Girona proved to be a great destination. The villa was clean and well equipped as a family of 8 this was an ideal place for our needs. This villa is well situated for all your day trips, just outside the town so you are in the countryside yet closer enough to visit Girona's old town.
The helpful owner explained everything we needed to know and helped out in every way. The villa is very spacious and very clean and it was everything we wanted and more. The garden and grounds are very private and well looked after.
Would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to visit the Costa Brava. We will stay here again with no hesitation
This house is on a very busy main road with constant traffic, and in accordance with the contract which states that you must speak within 48 hours of any problems, we told the owner that we felt that the description on the website, did not make it clear how noisy this property was and renegotiated the price within half an hour of arriving as we knew that we were unhappy with its position. However, when we came to leave, the owner refused to return our deposit and did not even look around the property which we had left immaculate with nothing damaged - in fact, cleaner and more welcoming to the incoming guests than had been the case for our arrival. In Girona, nothing is open on a Sunday and arriving late on a Saturday, it might have been nice to have at least left a pint of milk. We left some fruit, veg, drink, milk and provisions for the family who followed us. The house itself is OK. It's tired and the crockery is mostly chipped and nothing matches. TH BBQ was good once it had been cleaned by us. The pool was nice but right by the road so impossible to listen to music or chat quietly to your family. There is a nice upstairs terrace but we never sat there as you overlook the road which is NEVER quiet. You cannot sleep with the windows open! The beds do not have top sheets but empty duvet covers. The air conditioning is good if you turn it down to cool but the wifi is not great and you can't stream anything. All in all, you feel they are in it for the money and take no care to make it nice for the families who go there. We took the keys in protest when they did not return our deposit, more out of frustration than anything else, not that it gave us our money back....... It was such a shame as the area (if not the village itself!) is beautiful with lovely mountain walks and coastal villages.
In all 10 years that we've been offering our house, we've never challenged a review because we feel that guests should have the right to give their honest opinion as it's always a gain that helps us improve. Criticism is one thing, but manipulating the facts is a different story.
Whenever we answer a request we ALWAYS provide the exact google coordinates and encourage people to check the area on street view. We ALWAYS tell the truth as it would make no sense to say that there is 1 car every 30 minutes and then have people come over and be disappointed. Moreover, there are many reviews about the house, which also are a good indicator of how the property is. Besides, the house has insulated windows, it´s surrounded by bushes and trees, and the BBQ and pool areas are behind the house, on the opposite side of the street.
On the other side, the family arrived at the house before 6:45pm. The grocery store in Quart (1 km away from the house) is open until 8:30pm and the grocery stores in Girona (5km away from the house) are open until 9:30pm. So they had plenty of time to go shopping. Claiming that we knew about their late arrival and that we did not have the decency to buy any food for them, is not true. Whenever guests are scheduled to arrive at night, we are happy to do the shopping for them as we've done many times in the past.
As for the complaint about the blankets, with temperatures over 30 C, it makes no sense to put blankets on the beds. However, they are in the wardrobes at our guests' disposal.
Regarding the crockery, we only have 2 options: either we charge guests every time they break something or we kindly ask them to replace it. Most customers prefer to buy a replacement. Nevertheless, every once in a while we do a major overhaul and replace everything with new crockery in order to have matching glasses and dishes again.
Another important fact is that we offered them the possibility to stay in our house until they would find another place and just pay for the days they would stay without incurring any penalties. Although there were many similar properties available in the area, they decided to stay for two weeks but wanted another major discount (they already got one upon arrival) and threatened us with a bad review.
Last but not least, they refused to return the keys to us when we did not accept their conditions, which is why we had no choice but to keep the diposit and use it to pay the change of all the locks in the property.
From Girona Airport: take N-II North direction France. Take 2nd indicator for Quart (with gas station sign). Pass the entire village. Find villa (salmon colored) on the right side.
