About Montserrat Franch

Im a natural of Girona, living currently in Germany. We love our house but we don't have he time to come over as often as we would like, that is why we rent it. We love to rent the house, it's always a nice experience. Allthough we are not always there, we do have very dedicate property managers who take very good care of our guests.

Montserrat Franch purchased this villa in 2000

Why Montserrat Franch chose Castell-Platja d'Aro

As we were looking for a property to buy, we falled in love with the location, with the beautiful view to the sea, and the quietness of the area, but still near the beach and the town. We bought the land and built the villa. We decorated it ourselves. Whenever we come over on holiday we always enjoy it very much.

Guestbook comments from the owner

hr Ferienhaus ist ein wahrer Traum. Wir haben uns alle dort sehr wohl gefühlt.

Im Haus ist alles was man braucht, sogar einen zweiten Kühlschrank am Pool.

Die Aussicht ist einzigartig, die haben wir beim Frühstück jeden Morgen neu genossen.

In der Umgebung kann man toll spazieren gehen, toller Pinienwald am Ende der Sackgasse.

Die Verwalterin Ingrid war immer sehr nett, zuvorkommend und sehr engagiert.

Das Haus liegt sehr schön zentral und doch sehr ruhig etwas abseits.

Die Städte Playa D´Aro und Sant Antoni de Calonge sind in 10 min erreichbar und dort haben wir alles gefunden was wir brauchten.

Für uns war es ein sehr, sehr, sehr gelungener Urlaub.

Wir können uns sogar vorstellen in nochmal wieder zu kommen.

Vielen Dank für die schöne Zeit.

Entièrement satisfaits de notre séjour dans cette villa. Celle-ci est conforme à la description faite sur le site. Nous étions 2 familles (4 adultes et 5 enfants âgés de 10 à 17 ans). La maison est spacieuse, bien agencée et propre. La vue de la terrasse est magnifique, le jardin et la piscine sont impeccables grace à un entretien régulier.

Fantastic Villa

  • 4 of 5

The villa was everything we had been promised. Amazing views towards Palamos, a beautiful crystal clear pool, table tennis to keep the older kids amused and a truly comfortable feel to the property that really made it feel like home.

Had a wonderful week.. The villa is beautiful and is exactly how it was explained in the description. Excellent facilities.

Great communication between both quality estates and the owner. This property was ideal for my family as my mums mobility isn't what it use to be so having the main living area all on one level was perfect. Really can't say anything bad. Highly recommend. Would certainly come back to this villa.

Impossible for Wheelchairs

  • 2 of 5

I rented the house because the description stated that it was wheelchair accessible and suitable for a large family.

On arrival we found that it was not possible to enter the path to the house with a wheelchair, the gulley in the road prevented such access. After much effort we managed to get the chair onto the path only to find that there was a deep thresh wood to the front door that made access difficult. On entering, the house was clean spacious and reasonably well appointed although we found that we could not open some of the windows and shutters. Furthermore, some curtains were torn and the leather suite engrained with dirt. (The agent said that we should just wiggle the locks until they worked but failed to send anyone to fix them!!).

The views were magnificent but I had difficulty in accessing the balcony because of the raised tracks to the sliding doors, etc., Once outside I could only forlornly watch my family in the swimming pool because the only access meant exiting onto the road, an extremely difficult operation in a wheelchair as I have described, and travelling down a ramped drive that was far too steep for wheelchairs.

I should comment that the agent showed little concern for the access difficulties or the fact that they insisted in changing the timing and arrangements for leaving the property. The young lady's stance was that they had not been informed of the contract details between the owner and renter and that any problem was ours!

I should advise that I was aware that I would be restricted to the ground floor and pool area. The latter was spacious and had plenty of space for my chair to manoeuvre.

The access problem resulted in the holiday being a disaster and I intend to take the matter further.

However, The house would be ideal for a large family if the shutters and windows were better maintained.

Magnifique villa au calme

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé 2 très belles semaines avec nos amis dans cette très agréable maison, située sur les hauteurs de Playa de Aro, dans un lotissement très calme.

Il y avait tout le confort nécessaire dans cette charmante maison pour se reposer, se détendre au bord de la piscine ou déjeuner sur la belle terrasse avec vue sur la mer. Nous espérons y retourner un jour et la recommandons vivement !
