About the property

Well-equpped villa with 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, private pool with games area

La Pineda is a 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom link-detached villa in a quiet residential area only 900m from the crescent-shaped beach of Tamariu. We aim to provide a perfect holiday home for families/groups of 4 - 6 people. Discounted rates for smaller groups.

This villa offers: private pool (with partial heating), built-in barbecue, choice of dining terraces, table tennis, free Wi-Fi and more...

A holiday in La Pineda gives you several options: relax and enjoy the amenities of the villa, stroll down the hill to the centre of Tamariu with its stunning setting and sea-front restaurants or explore the the wider area with numerous activities within a 20 minute drive. What a choice!

Facilities - Indoors

Inside the villa, there is a light, bright open-plan living/dining area with an archway to the kitchen. Both the living area and the kitchen have direct access to the outside dining terraces and barbecue - making 'eating in', easy and relaxed.

The living area is equipped with the latest technology: internet access and Wi-Fi and a 40 inch television with access to the main UK channels. In addition, the amenities include a DVD hard disc recorder, an ipod dock/CD player, together with a selection of dvds, children's board games and books.

The living room also has a wood-burning stove - useful for cosy evenings in the spring/autumn.

The kitchen is fully equipped with dishwasher, oven, hob, microwave oven and fridge-freezer. A washing machine is housed in an enclosure adjacent to the kitchen.

The bedrooms are divided between 2 floors: the first floor has a double bedroom and a single bedroom, both with access to a large sun terrace, and a full bathroom.

To provide more flexibility for our clients, the single room can be converted to a compact, twin or double room, if required.The ground floor has a double bedroom, single bedroom and a shower room.

All bedrooms have ceiling fans. The separation of bedrooms/bathrooms ensures additional privacy for extended families or groups.


At the rear of the property, there are attractive south-facing gardens and clients can enjoy the private pool (7m x 4m). For the benefit of our clients, we aim to provide pool heating during April, May, June, September and October.

There are two dining terraces, one of which has a built-in and covered barbecue. The generous proportions of the gardens allow plenty of space for sun loungers and an area for table tennis and other games. The gardens are fully enclosed and gated and have the advantage of being largely on one level - useful for children.

As is typical of properties in this area, there are steps up to the villa from road level. From its elevated position, there are views of the pine-wooded hillside from the front terrace and gardens - more space to enjoy with some welcome shade under the pine trees - hence 'La Pineda'.

Parking available along the quiet road.


Included in rental price: Wi-Fi, all bedlinen and towels (fresh linen supplied for holidays of more than 1 week), also pool towels, tea towels and bath mats, cleaning before and after occupancy, a welcome pack for your arrival and the services of a local (English -speaking) agent to meet/greet you on arrival and attend to any issues during your stay. Beach towels, cots and high chairs can be hired for a small charge.

About Anne Phillips

I live in Berkshire, an semi-retired and previously, worked as a teacher specialising in helping children with specific learning difficulties.

Anne Phillips purchased this villa in 2011

Why Anne Phillips chose Palafrugell

I first visited Tamariu, nearly 20 years aqo. Like many others, I fell in love with the village and surrounding area. Only a few months later, we bought an apartment and in 2011, bought this villa - La Pineda. It met our needs perfectly...

What makes this villa unique

It is a true 'second home' with all of the comfort and amenities we enjoy in the UK - with added sunshine!

I take great pride in dealing personally with clients and am delighted to have many clients who return regularly to our lovely villa. We continually maintain and improve this property and by staying often ourselves, we check everything is perfect for our guests!

We believe a holiday in La Pineda would appeal to a wide variety of people. We cater for families or couples who just want to relax in the is in a quiet area, but within easy reach of the village bars/restaurants. If you want activities - there are plenty! Mostly, if you want to enjoy the Catalan cuisine in a beatiful setting,come to Tamariu! Although we recommend hiring a car to explore the local area, my agent will collect clients from the airports (Girona or Barcelona).

Great holiday, amazing location, lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a great week at La Pineda with my wife and two teenage daughters, combining 3 nights in Barcelona with a relaxing stay in Tamariu.

The villa was perfect for us. Well equipped, very comfortable, nice size pool for cooling off, well kept grounds, all very clean and in good condition. Lovely welcome from Jane and her daughter and the provisions in the fridge when we arrived were a very nice touch. Location is 800m walk from the centre of Tamariu. Uphill on the way back in the heat is a test, but its really fine. We left our car at the bottom of the hill when we were feeling lazy.

Tamariu and the area is very pretty with lots of small beaches, coves and nice towns. We visited Begur, LlaFranc, Calleja and Girona and would recommend all of them.

Restaurant recommendations made by the owner and Jane were all great.

Overall, we had a fantastic time and would definitely recommend La Pineda if you are looking for a base from which to relax and explore this part of the Costa Brava.

Thank you Jane for looking after us. And thank you Anne for having us!

Great holiday - in a great family villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time and really enjoyed the villa it is so comfortable, spotlessly clean, a real home from home. The villa is so well equipped with comfy beds, a kitchen with everything we could ever need and more seating / sunbed options than you could wish for. Our boys really enjoyed all the pool toys, table tennis and tennis. It made our time around the pool very relaxing.

We have stayed in this area before and were looking forward to revisiting our favourite places - Begur, Sa Tuna, Cap Sal, Agua Freida and Pertallada. Pertallada is a real must to visit as it is a stunning medieval village with many good restaurants and bars. We also visited Salvador Dali Castle in Pubol , the medieval town of Pals and the gardens at Cap Roig. The later is where they hold summer concerts – well worth checking who is playing whilst you are on your holidays.

We ate in Tamarui a few times as it was good to be abe to walk home after having a few glasses of wine. All the restauants were good although we did feel that the standard and value improved if you travel inland a bit. The following are really very special and our favourites; the Aiguaclara and Pizzeta in Begur; Sa Racassa in Aiguafreda and Galena Mas Comangau (on the road out of Begur). We also stumbled upon a stunning square in the village of St. Feliu De Boada on one of our trips out, we ate in Can Dolc which was one of our best meals and very reasonable.

We had a fantastic holiday and enjoyed having such a great base at Villa Pineda. Thank you Anne for being such a generous host this is the most welcome we have ever felt at a holiday villa. We can’t wait to come back

Owner's Response: Thank you for this comprehensive review! I'm so glad the villa worked well for you to relax by the pool and as a base for exploring this lovely area. One of the advantages of taking a holiday during 'peak' season is the opportunity to enjoy the warm evenings and outdoor events (like Cap Roig concerts) and other local festivals. I look forward to arranging another holiday for your family in the future. Thanks again.

Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at La Pineda with high expectations and we were not disappointed! The Villa is beautiful with everything you could possibly need! We were welcomed by the local representative who was lovely and helpful and showed us around the villa( she even printed our Ryanair boarding passes for us)! The grounds are large and spacious and the swimming pool a welcome addition. The BBQ area was our favourite place to sit out and eat most nights. We were expecting to eat out more but did not need to as the Villa felt like our home. The ping pong table was great fun and we played for many hours. The resort of Tamariu is about a 10 minute walk downhill ( coming back the hill is challenging) but we had a car so it was no problem. 2 Spars in the village which are well stocked and a large Eclat supermarket a short drive also 2 other large supermarkets nearby. Anne was excellent at communicating with us and sent out a very detailed pack before our departure with lots of useful info and spot on directions to the Villa. We would not hesitate to return to this Villa and hope to do so next year! All in all a fabulous Villa in a beautiful small resort! We all loved it!

Fantastic family home

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at La Pineda. It is fully equipped with everything you might need for a great family holiday… Plenty of towels, plenty of beds, a well stocked kitchen (both ingredients and utensils/equipment), beach toys & umbrellas, table tennis bats...the lot!

I can imagine that a holiday here would be good any time of the year - Tamariu and the surrounding area is heavenly

Picture this: pink-tinged rocks, small bays and beaches with pine trees as a backdrop. Tamariu, originally a fishing village has retained its Catalan identity and charm. There are no high rise hotels/apartments, just authentic family-owned bars and restaurants on the waterfront. Tamariu cove is ideal for swimming and snorkelling - the beach shelves at a fairly gentle ange and is safe for children. It is popoular for walkers with a coastal path linking nearby villages.

Just a 20 minute drive away, there is a water park. There are several, preserved medieval villages just a short drive away and the beatiful Cap Roig botanical gardens in Calella de Palafrugell.

Palafrugell, just a few kilometres away, is a proper, market town with a large traditional market and the market square has a range of open-air cafes to rest and soak up the atmosphere after shopping. Begur, also nearby, is a hilltop town with an ancient castle. There is plenty to do and see in this beautiful part of the Costa Brava.
