About Richard Perry

We are a married couple who reside in the south west of England with grown up children. Enjoy golf,travel, fine cuisine and culture.We regularly host our children and grandchildren at the villa and have many extended family happy memorable vacations there.

We love this area!

Richard Perry purchased this villa in 2006

Why Richard Perry chose Baix Emporda

My wifes sister moved to this area of Spain 40 years ago, married a Catalan and lived in the area ever since.We have always been interested in travel both in the UK and Europe during our vacation period from work.We found our passion continued to draw us back to Italy and Spain but eventually this area of Catalunya.It is rich in natural beauty,culture and cuisine both inland and on the coast.We enjoy both the snorkelling and beach life on offer and the exceptional countryside walks,drives and cycle tracks. The whole area is about the great outdoors and memorable family holidays in quality surroundings..

What makes this villa unique

When we decided to purchase a property in the area we realised the importance of location with views. So many properties were sunk on hillsides or with gardens so steep that it would be dangerous for our children. When we saw Villa Suro it was an obvious choice. Situated on a level elevated position with fantastic views to the sea and wooded hills. A good sized level garden providing an safe environment for all in a beautiful semi rural location which is both peaceful and relaxing. The jewel in the crown was the good sized roof tower/ terrace which affords fantastic uninterrupted views of the vine yards,countryside and sea! The villa itself has been subject of a complete refurbishment since our purchase with fully upgraded kitchen,bathrooms,double glazing,air conditioning to the living areas and swimming pool patios and garden areas. In the kitchen we have a large Bosch fridge/freezer,dishwasher and all facilities to ensure ease whilst dining 'at home'. The garden also has a good sized BBQ area.A Wifi internet connection is maintained year round which completes the picture on making our holiday home a comfortable place to stay.

Lovely Villa

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a fabulous week in this lovely villa. Very well equipped and clean. Safe gated pool area - we had 4 adults, 1 teenager and 4 children ranging in age from 16 months to 6 years - all of whom enjoyed the pool. The view at breakfast from the roof top patio was particularly pleasant.

There was lots to do in the area and exploring was helped by the very useful guide provided by the owners - thanks Richard and Mary.

Amazing villa

  • 5 of 5

What a villa, what a location. Faultless in every way. The villa has EVERYTHING you need for a home away from home. We were 4 adults and 4 children, everyone was fully entertained and catered for. The villa is spotlessly clean, light and airy. We were there is late July/early August but the heat was not a problem. The swimming pool was just fantastic, a real selling point. The quietness of the location was also excellent.

Location wise couldn't have been better for day trips and local amenities were also second to none.

This was our first villa holiday and we spent a lot of time researching places. On choosing Villa Suro, Richard was such a great source of info and always answered queries promptly. We would highly recommend everything about Villa Suro and would definitely return if going back to the area.

Super Vila

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Vila Suro for 2 weeks in June 2011. We were 4 persons - two of them teenagers. The description of the Villa and all details got by the owner were a 100% correct and very detailled. Let's say - perfect. The pool is great and has a nice view to the ocean, even when it's night. Supermarkets are nearby. I can recommend this property for families and also for parents who are on vacation with teenagers. Barcelona is a one day trip away. No problem to go there by car, but be careful with your wallets. It was a perfect stay at an excellent house with nice pool area.

Owner's Response: Thankyou for your kind review Markus. We try our best to ensure our holiday home offers good value to families and holiday makers and it is very much appreciated by us to know our efforts have been noticed by you and your family. We very much appreciate the house,location and area and are very pleased that clearly you experienced the same. Just to clarify one point Barcelona is between 1.5 to 2 hours drive away or the train can be caught from Caldes de Malavella and yes Las Ramblas area is notorious for pickpockets. Glad you all enjoyed your vacation and maybe we may see you again!. Kind Regards, Richard and Mary

A Simply Charming Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a simply charming place to stay! We rented the villa for a week in April 2011, and invited our daughter and family, (husband plus two girls, 7 and 9), and my wife’s brother and girlfriend to stay with us. We had an amazing barbecue when our other daughter and family, (husband plus three boys, 2, 4, and 6) and my brother and wife all joined us for the day. Villa Suro is a great place for a family gathering. The children enjoyed collecting leaves from the pool, (why do it yourself when you have got willing helpers?!!), swimming, and playing quietly together.

The location is ideal for families, but a car was very useful. In the mornings I sometimes walked down to the local supermarket for fresh bread, and back, up the quite steep track, but it kept me fit! (About twenty minutes return walk). Larger supermarkets are only five minutes drive away. We visited Palamos, about ten to fifteen minutes drive, and did two well worthwhile cultural visits, one to Figueres to see the Salvador Dali museum, which was fascinating, and the other to Barcelona, where the highlight was a visit to the Sagrada Familia cathedral. I am not a culture vulture, but I would thoroughly recommend this latter. Amazing, spectacular, doesn’t even begin to describe it.

We found it interesting that we were in the heart of Catalunya, where the first language is Catalan. However they do usually understand Spanish.

Eating out is definitely worth doing, although we did enjoy having barbecues at the villa. I think our favourite restaurant was the Can Tia. This does also have the advantage of being within walking distance from the villa, although the walk back, up Carrer del Moli de Vent (Windmill Street), sorts the men from the boys!

We liked the hassle-free stay very much. Richard and Mary emailed us instructions on how to get there, and how to get into the villa. It was all easy to follow, and from the moment we arrived it was like being at home. No visits from anyone to check that we were doing the right thing, and we were being treated responsibly to use the villa as though it was ours. (I wish!!!).

Many thanks for everything.

John

This villa sits on a slightly elevated level plot which affords outstanding views of the sea, olive groves and forested hills. The villa has a WOW factor in the form of an unusual roof tower which gives access to a large roof terrace where a 360 degree view can be enjoyed of the local area. The immediate area around the villa has a quiet rustic feel and is a 10 minute short walk from the medieval village of Calonge.

Situated in a quiet semi rural location on the edge of a small urbanization which is in an area of outstanding cultural and natural beauty with a mix between the Catalan countryside and natural coves and beaches. A large selection of beaches can be reached between 10 and 20 minutes drive.

The nearest beach is Sant Antoni which is 4kms or 10 minutes drive. The beach is wide and sandy and there is a level beach front promenade to walk around the bay to Palamos. There are beach front restaurants here and beach activities and a few chiringuitos (bars) to take refreshment.

There are also unspoilt medieval villages of Pals, Pertallada and Monells close by. A huge range of restaurants, a few in walking distance but most a short drive away to experience the Catalan gastronomic delights and freshly caught fish from Palamos (10 mins by car).

Palamos is excellent for good quality seafood restaurants and is always a great choice for an evening walk around the old town touring the various tapas bars on offer. The beaches around Palamos bay are large and sandy and offer safe bathing particularly for children.

There is a vast network of 370kms country and coastal paths for the walkers and cyclists in the area interspersed with exceptional views and villages along each route. The Dali Triangle sits close by.

Barcelona and all it has to offer in the form of Gaudi, The Ramblas and the Port, is just over an hours drive away at 110kms.

Other local activities include paint-balling and water park which are within 10 minutes drive.

There are numerous golf courses in the area including the excellent PGA Catalunya Resort, Golf Platja de Pals and Emporda Golf, all within 30 minutes drive. The local golf club at Mas Nou D,Aro golf is 15 minutes drive.

Winter activities: The rugged Pyrenees mountains are 1 and 1/2 hours drive and is attracting more skiers each year, during the winter months. Baqueira-Beret in the Val d,Aran is one of Spains best ski resorts. Other popular activities around the Pyrenees include mountain climbing ,white water rafting and trekking.

The cost implications for ski passes are significantly cheaper than the Alps and other mountain ski slopes situated in the near continent of Europe.

The principality of Andorra which sits between Catalonia and France is one and a half hours drive away and offers further skiing opportunities and breathtaking scenery. Here you can also experience a dip in the mineral waters at the Caldea Spa complex or a drive across the spectacular Port d, Envalira pass,which is the highest in the Pyrenees.

There is also good boar hunting and fishing that takes place throughout the rural areas.
