Superb Villa... Superb Holiday.....

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this villa for a week as a family group of 6 adults and 2 children (age 4 &6yrs) in July. We were met with a very warm welcome from Colin and Mandy, and there were even a couple of cold beers in the fridge for us when we arrived. The house, gardens, and pool area are all fantastic, and I would have no hesitation in whole heartedly recommending this villa. The photos and descriptions in the advert make the place look amazing, but I would say it actually surpassed our expectations.

The house itself was beautiful, equipped with everything we needed, spotlessly clean and decorated to a good standard. There are 3 double/twin bedrooms in the main house and another double/twin in the the little annex which has it's own entrance and bathroom. There is no air conditioning, but the design of the house along with the ceiling fans were more than adequate for keeping the rooms comfortable. We didn't really use the lounge and dining room as we were there in the summer and the property has such fantastic outside space that we weren't inside very much. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed and had the added bonus of a water dispenser & ice machine in the fridge. The downstairs toilet/bathroom was very handy for coming in and out of the pool area.

The real bonus of this property is the wonderful garden & pool area. The pool has steps going down into it, and was a good size and temperature. There is a little pool house with sink, BBQ, dining table, seating area & wifi, and we pretty much lived out there during the day. A wee fridge out there for cold drinks would have been an welcome addition. There is loads of outside space and the garden is just beautiful with plenty of seating and sun loungers. The little games area is equipped with a ping pong table, darts, table football, weights machine, and a tree swing. there is also a lovely seating area and big dining table just outside the main house.

The property is in a rural location in the middle of corn fields, so it is lovely and peaceful and quiet. We did get a few insect bites out by the pool area (you are surrounded by fields to be fair), so taking a good insect repellent would be a good idea (mosquitos plug ins are supplied in all the bedrooms) . A car is essential, but the town on La'Bisbal is very close by, with good supermarkets, restaurants etc. The coast is also only a short drive away and there is lots to do & see in the area.

Overall, a stunning property.

A bit of paradise in the spanish countryside

  • 5 of 5

We came here the second year this summer and it feels like coming back to paradise. The house and garden are really just so incredibly beautiful as you can see in the pictures. The house is located on the country and it is quiet and peaceful, yet close to the city Emporda de Bisbal. A plus is the proximity to great restaurants.

The owners are so nice and helpful and keeps the house very clean and tidy.

We will definitely return here and recommend it to others.

Un sublime séjour

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un séjour merveilleux de 2 semaines avec nos amis : nous avons été 4 adultes et 4 enfants (de 4 ans à 10 ans) à profiter de ce lieu et de l'hospitalité de Mandy et Collin. Le Mas Ferran est vraiment idéal pour un séjour tout en relaxation et détente. La ferme extraordinairement réhabilité par nos hôtes offre un cadre au confort complet, décoré avec un goût parfait pour se sentir à l'aise et complètement dépaysé.

Le site est isolé mais les sites touristiques restent très accessibles puisque nous avons pu régulièrement profiter de la plage de l'Estartit (20 km environ), et avons fait quelques visites (Barcelone à 1H30 en voiture ou 1H00 en train, Gérone, Figeres, Cadaques, Paratadella).

Nos hotes ont su se montrer à la fois discret mais nous ont également apporté leurs conseils pour profiter au mieux de notre séjour.

Au risque de saturer les réservations et ne plus pouvoir trouver un créneau disponible pour nous, nous vous confirmons la qualité exceptionnelle de ce site et de l'accueil de Mandy et Collin.

A Relaxing Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in Spain at midnight ,and followed the meticulous description provided by the owners on how to locate Mas Ferran without difficulty. Despite the late hour, Colin was there to greet us, and the floodlit garden and pool provided a magical welcome and a fantastic start to a wonderful holiday. The house thoroughly lived up to our requirements concerning ample space for my husband and myself and our 2 children and their young families,( 6 adults and 4 children under the age of 4).The house is beautifully furnished and well-equipped inside and out, with books and games and wi-fi access. It is also very child friendly and has a lovely atmosphere.

We spent most of our time lazing around the pool, playing table tennis,and racquet tennis and studying the lizards. Definitely something for everyone!. We also made several trips to the nearby Costa Brava (25 mins. drive),exploring the beaches and visiting Bégur with its ancient castle, tapas and festive street dances, Girona is also definitely worth a visit, with its cathedral, and tiny cobbled streets and city wall. In the evenings we relaxed in the magnificent garden,barbecueing around the pool, star gazing and listening to the silence of the surrounding farmland. There are several restaurants close by if you don't feel like cooking, though the kitchen is fully equipped and very cosy. We chose Mas Pastor in Corca one evening and fetched paella and local specialities , preferring to eat at home on the vine- decked terrace.

I would thoroughly recommend Colin and Mandy's beautiful home to anyone seeking a relaxing experience with plenty of space for family or friends.

A great family retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at Mas Ferran two weeks ago and had a wonderful time. The home is located in such a peaceful surrounding and the sunsets are amazing. We spent the days by the pool (or at the beach) and the afternoons/evenings exploring the local towns, restaurants and shops. We loved Girona, only 20 minutes away. One day we drove to Ceret, France, which is a quaint French village about 1 hour's drive from the house. If you are looking for a relaxing retreat that is close to so many Costa Brava sites, then consider Mas Ferran.

Our stay in August

  • 5 of 5

My family and two other families, relatives and friends stayed at Mas Ferran. The property is even better than the photographs on the site. It is really spacious, which made the stay enjoyable for everyone. The owners are very friendly and helpful. We liked visiting the surrounding villages and discovering the life of Salavador and Gala Dali. Some nice beaches are only 20 minutes drive, but mosy days we enjoyed the peaceful time at the villa and the swimming pool. I would recommend it to anyone.
