About Ann Highgate
From the point of contact to the guests return after their holiday we offer assistance and information to make the whole process as smooth as possible. This has shown itself to be true with many of our guests returning time after time.
Ann Highgate purchased this Bungalow in 2006
Why Ann Highgate chose Les Planes del Rei
The reason for buying in this area because we wanted somewhere we could drive to and not to rely on flying all the time. By car, it takes approximately 6 hours to Santander to get the ferry to Portsmouth or approximately 13 hours to the Channel Tunnel. The scenery both ways is stunning. With the mountains changing on a daily basis the views are amazing but with the nearest beach only a 7 minute drive we have the best of both worlds. There is so much going on with all the festivals during the year and Port Aventura is a great place to visit all year and especially at Christmas. Barcelona airport is an easy drive just over an hour away and is serviced by most major airlines.

Excellent house, well finished & very clean
Lovely property in a quite neighbourhood, ten minutes' drive to excellent beaches.We thoroughly enjoyed the pool and eating outside. This place definitely ticks all the boxes :-)
Thank you for your lovely review and we are delighted to hear that our villa ticks all the boxes. We look forward to accommodating you in the future, best wishes.
We spent 9 nights in this lovely villa during August. The villa has everything that you need for a fantastic holiday and is very well equipped. We did some sight seeing of the surrounding area and it is stunning! There are mountains and great beaches. My son in law actually hired a bike for 3 days which was delivered to the villa. He had some wonderful photos from his travels into the mountains. The well maintained pool and jacuzzi were used frequently by everyone! We enjoyed a visit to the beach late afternoon where the grandchildren enjoyed playing in the sand while we had a drink at the beach bar. We didn't eat out as we preferred to BBQ so I can't comment on the local restaurants. All in all we had a fantastic holiday and the whole family were unanimous in saying that we would like to return.
Thank you so much for your review, we are delighted to hear you thoroughly enjoyed our villa and the surrounding area and had such an amazing holiday. We look forward to accommodating you in the future. Best wishes.
This was our first holiday abroad in 11yrs and were looking for something that would please me and my wife, our 17yr old daughter and 12yr old son. What was important was we got to relax, this we managed quite easily as we found it very peaceful and I think this was mainly because of the time of year and not many villa's around us being inhabited. The villa itself was large, clean and very well equipped the pool was a decent size and the jacuzzi was a bonus. A car is essential for shops and getting around, with a local Lidl not far and as a base for visiting other areas it's ideal. Mike and Val were on hand if we had any problems and Mike popped by to ensure the pool was clean every day. We loved our time here and if I had anything negative to say it would only be about a lot of things being closed for the season including the only bar/restaurant within walking distance. The time we were there it only opened on a Friday night for drinks and Saturday night was the only time it served meals. We did however find some lovely restaurants down by the marina which were open plus a large market on the Sunday. A big plus too was the ease and stress free correspondence with Ann especially if like us it's the first time you've hired a villa but she was friendly and helpful and helped make our stay a wonderful one. All said and done if you asked me would I stop there again the answer would be yes in heartbeat!!!
Having chosen our villa for your first holiday in 11 years it was wonderful to learn that you all had such an enjoyable time. We would be delighted to accommodate you in the very near future.
A Fab Villa
We have returned from a fantastic week in this superb villa. It is equipped and furnished to a high standard, with everything you need for a break. The owners and caretakers are great, nothing is too much trouble. The four bedrooms are double rooms, two bathrooms, very comfortable lounge/dining area, leading to a fabulous full length terrace. The pool and hot tub are a good size (although water quite cold at this time of year - we still managed to go in most days). The location of the villa is great for a quiet break, just out of town heading towards hills. Take the train to Barcelona for a day out it's well worth it. Our overall opinion of the villa is excellent and we would love to go again. Thanks for having us.
We are thrilled you had such a fantastic week and thank you for your lovely review.

Fantastic relaxing week
We were a group of 5 adults and stayed for a few days in this very well presented villa in such a beautiful setting amongst the mountains. we mainly enjoyed spending our days around the pool and the evenings sat on the veranda drinking great and extremely well priced wine from the local Bodega as well as fantastic fresh food from the local markets on the weekend.We also visited Tarragona which was well worth the visit. All in all it was a very relaxing trip start to finish made all the more great by the easy booking process at such short notice. Thanks
Thank you for your review and we are delighted to hear that you all had such a wonderful time in the villa and Costa Dorada area. We very much look forward to accommodating you in the future.
