About Val Staniforth

Howard & Val came to Spain in 2002 after running a couple of businesses in the UK. They chose Roses as it is very near the French border, giving access to the restaurants and shops across the border as well as the wonderful facilities offered by Roses itself, Figueres, Girona, Barcelona and Cadaques. It is an ideal location. They spend their summers, during the time their house is let, travelling with their caravan and visiting new places either in the UK and France or in other parts of the Continent. They are very happy that holidaymakers are able to enjoy their comfortable, well-equipped house in the summer and are interested to receive feedback on their experiences .

Val Staniforth purchased this house in 2000

Great holiday for 3 generations

  • 5 of 5

We had a super holiday. The grandparents spent most days sitting on the patio or the balcony enjoying the view and the sunshine and reading some of the many books.

The teenagers enjoyed the freedom of walking down to the beach or to the shops in Roses. And the 50 year olds enjoyed the house, the beaches, the shops and restaturants .

Roses is a great place and the house in a super location (apart from the hill on the way home!) for all ages.

  • 5 of 5

As between our two families we have four lively boys ranging from 9 to 17, we needed a villa with plenty of space, a good sized pool, plenty of outdoor space and a TV with football! This villa was perfect for us and provided everything we needed. The villa was beautifully equipped with a wealth of excellent books as well as travel guides and local information. The views were stunning and we spent many happy hours, lingering over meals on the terrace, glass of wine in hand, enjoying the views!

The weather was perfect and the villa so comfortable that we were quite happy to spend our time there rather than venturing out!

When we did go out, the local beaches in Roses were quite crowded and we prefered to go to Empuriabrava beaches which had great expanses of sand and were never too crowded.

Roses itself was beautiful with an excellent choice of restaurants which we enjoyed on several occasions. Supermarkets were plentiful with a wide range of local and english goods.

Many thanks to Valerie and Howard for the excellent booking arrangements which were clear and straightforward with plenty of helpful information and to Kerry the housekeeper who explained everything we needed to know.

We would definitely recommend this villa to friends and would love to return at some time in the future.

A lovely house in the resort of Roses

  • 5 of 5

The house was conveniently situated 15 minutes walk from the resort of Roses where there were shops and many bars and restaurants, although to walk back up to the house from the town involved a very steep hill. Also there were steps inside the house and in the garden so it would not be suitable for anyone disa.bled or infirm. A car is useful for shopping and sightseeing. The house was clean, very well equipped and well maintained, and had stunning views of the Bay of Roses from the windows and balconies. It is a lovely house and I would recommend it for anyone requiring a large property with swimming pool for their holiday. The one thing some members of my party found offputting was the 3 pages of rules which included how much things would cost to repair if they were broken or damaged, but as it was the owners' home perhaps this is understandable. The description of the property was accurate - everything was as described.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for submitting a review so promptly. We are very pleased that you enjoyed staying at Can Chichi. As you rightly say, it is our home and I'm afraid we do need to have certain rules - we have experienced considerable damage in the past and it is very frustrating to have to keep repairing and replacing items, sometimes at considerable cost! Kind regards, Valerie

Excellent villa for two families

  • 5 of 5

We stayed two families with 4 adults and 5 kids. The villa felt spacious.

It was great having dinnerson the balcony with excellent view over the Roses Bay.

The kids spent a lot of time at the pool. The grown ups enjoyed morning walks in the National Park. The kids can recommend the Aqua-park.

It was just 15 minutes walk down to the beach and restaurants, but a 30 minute uphill walk back :)

We took the car to buy groceries at Carrefour express, where we found everything we needed including excellent fish.

Roses is ideally situated on the NE coast of Spain, only 50 minutes from the French border. It is approximately 1 hour by car from the old walled town of Girona with its excellent shopping and convenient airport and Barcelona is now only 53 minutes away from Figueres by the new high speed train. Figueres is less than half an hour away by car and is the nearest market town containing an excellent pedestrianised shopping area. It is, of course, home to the very famous Dalí Museum, which is definitely worth a visit.

Other places of interest along the beautiful coast are Cadaquès, the artists’ colony, Port Lligat, where Dali had his quirky house and, further south, the Roman ruins of Empurias.

Can Chichi is within 10 minutes walk of the new Marina, the Port, several beaches and Roses town centre, where there are many restaurants and bars to choose from, catering for all different tastes and price levels. In the vicinity there are also several other safe Blue Flag beaches and pretty bays.

Other Activities: Parachuting, including the brand new Wind Tunnel, which is fascinating to watch or to use, Kite surfing, Electric bike hire, Golf, all Water sports, yacht rental, scooter and car rental, power boat rental, kite surfing.

Roses has a Tourist Train which offers three different routes around the National Park surrounding the town, from where it is possible to see Dolmens (ancient burial chambers) as well as spectacular views
