Property type apartment

About the property

2 Double bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4 + baby

The apartment, with its own sunny terrace, garden and parking area, is located in a quiet residential area a short walk from the rural village (and restaurants) of Vall-Llobrega. Guests have exclusive use of the superb salt-water overflow swimming pool, with its terrace for sunbathing and admiring sweeping views of the countryside to the sea. If it's peace and quiet you're after, you can simply stay at home lazing by the pool, or drive 5 minutes to superb blue-flag bathing beaches. Or perhaps you'd prefer golf, walking, or exploring the wonderful architectural and historic sites of Catalonia. There are many excellent bars and restaurants in the area and, if you like the night-life, then look no further than cosmopolitan Platja d’Aro, with its great shopping and people-watching opportunities, or trawl the tapas bars in the more traditional fishing port of Palamos.

Coast, beach and tourist attractions: The Costa Brava (wild coast) is one of the most attractive parts of the Spanish coastline, with rocky coves alternating with long, sandy beaches. There are many four- and five-star blue flag bathing beaches in the area, some of which are little bays in picturesque seaside towns like Tamariu or Callella de Palafrugell, or reached by coastal paths, whilst sweeping sandy beaches can be found in the larger seaside resorts. The kids will adore the acres of golden sand at nearby Palamos or Sant Antoni de Calonge (all with lifeguards on hand), or the huge water park in nearby Platja d’Aro. The council organises free activities for the kids in summer, and there are fiestas and cultural events on offer. For those with an architectural or historical bent, visit some of the many interesting sites in the area, including medieval villages, Romanesque churches, the Dali museum at Figueras and the Greek and Roman ruins at Empuriabrava. And of course you shouldn’t miss a trip to Barcelona.

Golf, walking and cycling: There are excellent championship golf courses within 30 minutes drive, ranging from par three courses to championship courses. There's also a Pitch'n'Putt 10 minutes away. Walkers can stroll out from the apartment into the surrounding hills and countryside, or enjoy the views as you meander along the Catalan coastal paths. When the weather is not too hot, more seasoned walkers can explore the way-marked routes through the nearby Gavarres hills, or venture further afield to the Pyrenees. There's lots of great biking on road and off road, with no need to take the car.

Shops and restaurants: If you don't fancy driving, you can walk into the village of Vall-Llobrega and eat at one of the restaurants or bar, or shop for essentials at the little bakery cum village store. Or drive into nearby Palamos, a charming Catalan port, with traditional restaurants, cafés, tapas bars and shops. Modern and cosmopolitan Platja d'Aro has it all - fashionable stores, lots of tourist shops, cafés and restaurants, plus a lively nightlife. There's plenty of al fresco eating in any of the lovely seaside towns and villages in the area and you can shop in bustling local markets, well-stocked supermarkets or speciality stores.

Girls Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We landed at Gerona airport, hired a car and had the most fantastic week.

The villa was immaculate, the welcome from Micheline was perfect and we spent the week relaxing by the gorgeous pool.

The villa is 5mins away from the village with restaurants and a bar, although you will need a car as the villa is situated high up the side of a hill.

We went into Palamos one night for a meal and even got a lift in from the caretaker (Micheline).

I can thoroughly recommend this villa and would happily return next year.

Perfect family/couple hideout with exclusive pool

  • 5 of 5

Villa apartement with the most beautiful exclusive pool,

very well maintained with everything kitchen or bathroom wise you could possibly need. The hostess is very

friendly, caretaking and she has saved all the items from

previously tennants so you are welcome to use a lot of

pool and beach toys, perfect if you have children.

There is a lovely view from the patio and the little garden is

well maintained with a beutiful scent of different herbs.

The property require that you have a car, it is located up in the hills and to get to all the lovely beaches it is the perfect

way to rent at the airport. Palamos is the nearest town/city

were you find everything you need and a very nice shopping area. My family, me my husband and our children 3 and 8 loved this holiday and we highly recommend it to families or couples with a car and a wish

to plan your own holiday.

Un petit paradis !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé des vacances formidables dans ce coin de paradis. La location est très bien située pour visiter la Costa Brava. Elle est conforme à la description : très bien équipée et très propre. (A noter que la chambre des enfants est indépendante et donne uniquement sur la terrasse). La piscine est un véritable délice. Enfin, nous remercions notre hôte qui a grandement contribué à la réussite de ce séjour grâce à tous ses bons conseils et ses petites attentions !!

Vall-Llobrega is close to the lively port of Palamos, where you can watch the fishermen bring in their catch at the end of the afternoon. It’s 40 kilometres to historic Girona, with its very own Rambla and labyrinthine old town crammed with interesting shops and bars. Barcelona is a 120-kilometre drive away, or take the train to central Barcelona (just one hour from Caldes de Malavella mainline station), or one of the frequent local buses. There are picturesque coastal villages and medieval towns to explore within a short drive of the apartment (Palamos, Calonge, Llafranc, Calella de Palafrugell, Tamariu, Sa Tuna, Begur, Pals, Peretallada, Sant Feliu de Guixols, and many more). The southern French border is just an hour's drive away and you can be in the Pyrenees in two hours. Excellent championship golf courses. Good walking country. Plenty for the kids to do.

Other Activities: snorkelling
