Guestbook comments from the owner

We spent a great week staying at this beautiful villa. From the moment we arrived and walked on to the livingroom to take in the fantastic view, we fell in love with this charming villa. The villa is so well appointed and comfortable and one really has the sense of being a guest in someone's well cared for home, rather than a tourist renting accommodation. The ambience of this area, that seemed to be away from all touristic crowds, set the scene for a week of delights. Late afternoon swims in the beaches within the natural park, which was reached within a 10 minute walk the closest one.

An afternoon trip to enjoy the views from the spectacular monastery of Sant Pere de Rodes, on the top of the natural park.

El Port de la Selva is also impressive, a typical mediterranean fisherman´s town. Very charming, with long and narrow streets with white houses and with a very nice boardwalk next to the marina.



So much to do but such a pleasure to just be quiet with a book and a glass of wine, on the terrace. The difficult decisions of each day!

The owner, was just so lovely and helpful with local information and suggestions for trips and restaurants. Nothing was too much trouble for him. A truly idyllic holiday, that we will never forget.

vacanza meravigliosa

  • 5 of 5

la casa è meravigliosa, spazi ampi, armoniosi e molto accoglienti, la ricerca dei particolari è curata nei minimi dettagli, la vista da qualsivoglia punto della villa è spettacolare dove poter godere albe e tramonti da sogno. la villa è ubicata a picco sul mare non distante dal paesino nel quale è possibile trovare ogni genere di necessità. Noi abbiamo soggiornato una settimana a gennaio e fortunatamente abbiamo respirato una quieta impareggiabile che ricercavamo dopo un anno di lavoro, gli abitanti di el port de la selva ci hanno informato che da maggio a settembre vi è molto turismo come comprensibilmente vi è in ogni località balneare. Ci ritorneremo sicuramente perchè abbiamo dei ricordi superbi grazie non di meno ai proprietari di casa che sono persone deliziose, discrete e super disponibili!

Great villa. Unforgettable views!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this property in November 2011. At first, looking at the advert we thought that the place was going to be nice, but once we got there we found out that the villa was better even that what we expected. The villa is located in a very impressive spot of la Costa Brava. From the livingroom (there are 2 of them) there are unobstructed views of both the natural park and the pirinees mountains (and obviouslly the sea). A couple of times we got up early on the morning to see the sunrise which was spectacular. Besides its location, the villa was in great shape, had plenty of kitchen utensils, iron, ironing board, blowdryers, towels so you could feel like home in this aspect. We couldn't use the swimigpool for obvious reasons (it was not so cold but too cold as to swim) but it looked nice and was very clean. We took many day trips around the area and went to nice restaurants so in summary we loved the place and we are looking forward to come back next summer!

semplicemente stupenda

  • 5 of 5

una casa bellissima e molto ben curata nei dettagli, abbiamo avuto qualche giorno ventoso ma la posizione e la vista che si gode ci hanno fatto comunque fare una vacanza veramente riposante, la consiglio a tutti gli amanti del mare e della vita tranquilla.

fuori del paese ma raggiungibile in pochi minuti anche a piedi, tra le altre cose un paesino molto accogliente e non troverete turismo di massa, spero che El port de la Selva si conservi intatta come l'ho trovata.

Inoltre i padroni di casa sono delle persone veramente gentili e precise e vorrei ringraziarli ancora per tutto.

Extraordinary Vacation Home in Wonderful Village

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of extended family from California (7 adults + 2 children ranging from ages 5 - 75) and this villa was perfect for all of us. Large enough that there was always a place for some quiet time, and also room for all of us to eat together (large tables inside and outside) and hang out together.

We could walk to the lovely isolated beach cove (and bring home wild rosemary to use for dinner), or take the short drive to the public beach with playground. The villa is also a perfect starting point for day trips to Cadaques, France, Roses, etc - though we also enjoyed just spending days lounging around "our" villa. Truly stunning views from every window.

The gorgeous furnishings & linens are appropriate for a fine home - not like some of the drab furniture we've found at other rentals. We did have one small problem with needing a repair and it was handled by the charming owner immediately. I really can't say enough about this wonderful place, and we look forward to spending many more family vacations here as my children grow up.

Feel close to paradise

  • 5 of 5

Excellent villa. Very large (we were 8 and we still had plenty of room) luxurious and recently built. We enjoyed the nice swimingpool, the solarium, and the great views of the ocean and the natural park. Beaches are nice and very close (a few minutes walk). The villa begins where the natural park ends. It can´t get better than this. Will repeat for sure.

More than perfect

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks of our summer vacation in this villa (family of 6) and we can definitely recommend it.

The view from all of the rooms is simply stunning. We couldn’t get enough of it!

The house itself is fully equipped with everything you might need (feels like a 5 star hotel): nice linens, towels, soap and more.. And for relaxing days: books, games, maps and information about the area and plenty of beach stuff. There is also everything in the kitchen that you might need.

The house as well as the garden, which offers even more places to sit outside, are in a very good shape and are tastefully designed and equipped.

El Port de la Selva offers you enough little stores for groceries and also a few nice boutiques. The various beaches are easy to reach – just be prepared to walk uphill afterwards, that is a nice exercise.

We felt very much at home and honestly could have stayed forever!
