Guestbook comments from the owner

Elisa wrote: We got the contact details off friends who stayed there last summer.

We wanted to spend a nice quiet, sunny Easter holiday this year (2012) with 8 friends and were advised that this could be a great option!

Eventhough the weather wasn't as good as we hoped, we had a lovely stay. It felt like a bit of the drive to get to the house but once we got there the spot was amazing with fantastic views! Peaceful and relaxing... exactly what we were after.



The house was very clean and cosy. The owners did a great job in making us feel at home and explaining what could be done in the area.



We managed a trip down by train to Barcelona and Girona, which was great fun. The beaches are quite a short drive from the house but we would have to come back in the summer to really enjoy them!



Thanks again so much for this lovely holiday and letting us stay in your lovely villa.

We hope to be back as soon as we can to recharge our batteries!

A fantastic house for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful house. Big enough for 2 families of 8. Well equipped for our needs. A great peaceful location with views over the mountains yet only a short drive to many nearby villages and beaches. The house was so nice we didn't want to leave. Thanks for a great holiday

Lovely Villa, Stunning Views, Great for Large Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week at the end of July (5 adults & 3 children under 6 years old).

Our first impressions of the villa was that it was much bigger than we had expected. Very comfortable and well equipped. The layout of the main area is superb. A kitchen / dining area with sliding doors to a large sun lounge which leads out to a patio and BBQ area with stunning views in all directions.

The bedrooms are all spacious with comfortable beds, wardrobes, draws, occasional seating and fans. Each has its own graceful homely style and decoration.

The gardens are lovely with numerous seating / sun lounging areas, a trampoline, double child's swing and of course a good size swimming pool. Our children aged between 2 & 6 all had a fantastic time. The villa and gardens are so nice that it really isn't necessary to go out that much other than to pick up supplies.

Nearby are numerous busy resorts and beaches with the usual array of restaurants, shops and nightly festivals. If our children had been a little older we probably would have spent more time at the beaches, but you know what its like with hot beaches and infants!

The villa was therefore perfect for us in every respect.

A big thank you to the owner for such a lovely holiday.

Owner's Response: Hello Andrew, from the first enquiry on, the contact was very friendly and cheerfully. You and your family are great! You left the house very very clean - and thank you for the ice-cream! I hope from my heart that it will not take other 20 years to welcoming you here on nice Costa Brava. I am assuming we will meet again...

Amazing, most relaxing spot for a real holiday

  • 5 of 5

Amazing holiday with our 4 children. Very private garden with the most stunning views away from the seasonal madness! but just a 10 min drive to the beach. The house was so peaceful that we spent most of our time there, since there is everything you need for a perfect holiday! Thanks for letting us use your house.
