Situated on a hillside between the Catalan medieval town of Pals and the beach, our villa has been a popular rental property with very happy clients leaving great feedback.

About Eugenia Badrena

I was born in Barcelona and have many happy childhood memories of holidays here in the Costa Brava. I moved to Scotland in 2001 where I now live with my husband and two children, but we always came back to this stretch of coastline to enjoy the beautiful beaches, unspoilt medieval towns and wonderful natural surroundings.

This year we bought the villa, after falling in love with the location and beautiful views. We aim to create a relaxing and peaceful holiday home for all our guests as well as being a place where we can come to relax with family and friends!

Eugenia Badrena purchased this villa in 2016

Why Eugenia Badrena chose Baix Emporda

The villa is in a lovely location on the edge of the beautiful forests of Begur and there are uninterrupted views over the hills. You can relax here straight away and in the evenings enjoy the sun set over a glass of wine by the pool.

What makes this villa unique

The villa is very spacious and is perfect for two families. There are four terraces, so it is easy to find a quiet moment, but the living-dining area is large enough for everyone to enjoy time together. The outdoor areas are gently lit in the evening, creating a nice atmosphere.

This year we introduced a Netflix subscription, so you can watch unlimited movies - great to keep the kids entertained while you prepare the barbecue or enjoy a chilled glass of Cava!

Beautiful View

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice holiday in this villa which was situated in a very quiet area in Pals but only a few minutes to a really good supermarket at the bottom of the hill. It was also well situated to visit some beautiful beaches at La Fosca, Tameriu and Lafranc. This is a very spacious villa with a lovely big bathroom at ground floor level and a splendid pool leading off two of the four bedrooms also at ground floor level. Also on this level there is a washing machine and tumble dryer which proved very useful. On the first floor level there is a very spacious lounge with a large tv with netflix which was very nice to have on the two rainy days out of our three week holiday. The other two bedrooms are at this level. There is a large balcony running the width of the property which overlooks large tree laden hills - a truly splendid view. The only thing that we could criticize was that the road just outside has a few holes and small lumps on it but this is scheduled to be rectified shortly. So, in summary, we had a lovely holiday in a very nice villa indeed for a very reasonable price too in comparison to other properties in the same area. We recommend this villa. Please note that the weather from 8th September to the 30th September is just right i.e. beautifully warm without being scorching hot so that we were able to explore the area comfortably. Not enough people think of going away during this period so we heartily recommend it. When booking Eugenia answered very promptly and was very attentive to any questions we put to her so that was very pleasing.

Highly recommended lovely villa overlooking hills and woodland with a south facing pool

  • 5 of 5

Lovely villa set in a unique spot south facing so the garden and the pool have the sun from first thing in the morning until it sets in the evening. Well equipped kitchen with large fridge freezer and all open plan living area that is great for family and friends to socialise whilst cooking. There is also a great

BBQ on an outside covered terrace with tables to dine at we use this a lot and eat outside every evening it overlooks the pool and the hills the views are great. We have stayed at this property two years running now the location is fantastic very close to beach great restaurants from fine dinning to pizzerias. The area the villa is set in is very quiet even in high season then only the odd car drives up and down the road and most of time you will be lucky to see anyone else. The villa has various different seating areas and spaces to realax which is great when you have a large family as everyone can go and find there own little bit of space. The pool area is truly amazing you can relax in peace and tranquility the pool is very modern and has an extremely efficient pump cleaning system so it's really clean and well kept.

The house has all modcons large smart TV with Netflix account available to use also the internet is very good and we have never had any problems at all. We have an 18 month year old traveling with us and the property is very safe and child friendly there is a baby gate on the stairs and the swimming pool area can be completely closed off from little ones. The property is very secure and all windows and doors lock well. There is lots and lots to do in the area I would go for a run down to pals beach and back you have to go along the main road to get there but it's very safe and lots of other pedestrians and bikes. The area also has some of the best scuba diving in Europe and best beaches so it really does have it all. There are loads of other activities from walking to horse riding and go karts and pretty much any water sport you can do my sister learnt how to free dive here.

The management company you takecare of you wile at the villa are very efficient they provide anything you need for us it was a high chair and cot but and problems that arrose during our stay very quickly delt with or repaired like when the light bulb went it the bathroom.

All in all it's a lovely clean quiet place to stay and you won't be disappointed.

Lovely villa

  • 4 of 5

Lovely villa, very well situated for visits to local beaches, Girona, Barcelona etc. The villa was very comfortable and the pool was a particular favourite with the children (the reclining sofas came a very close second). The service from the Liz was excellent - the umbrellas both broke due to high winds one day and they were replaced next morning.

Thanks again Eugenia.

Great views of the hills and lovely outside areas

  • 4 of 5

A great villa for a family holiday. Lots of space, in easy reach of lots of beaches, close to medieval towns that are full of character and with good restaurants. The pool area gets the sun all day if you don't want to venture out.

Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! This property is fantastic. Beautifully presented and maintained to an exceptional standard. The views around the property are breathtaking, adding to its charm and tranquility, and Pals is fantastic.

The owners of the property were also fantastic and ensured our holiday was amazing from start to finish by providing detailed information of the local area and things to do during our stay.

The villa was well-equipped and thewwelcome package was very much appreciated.

The pool is amazing, great size and the pool area is really well-presented, with fantastic access from both downstairs bedrooms and externally.

It was truly brilliant and we can't wait to go back! Thank you so much for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful home.
