We spent 2 weeks at Villa Teka in September and had an amazing, relaxing holiday. Just what we wanted. The villa is in an urbanisation a short drive from the coast so is in a very quiet location but there are lovely sea views. The villa itself is lovely, very traditional and very comfortable. It was like home from home. It is very well equipped and the outside area is amazing with lots of room for everyone to relax and a lovely pool big enough and deep enough for a proper swim. It is very secure with electric gates and ample parking space. We had good service from the agency that manages the property as we did have a couple of minor issues that needed attention. One disappointment was that the bed linen and towels were not changed during the two weeks rental and we have never experienced this before. When I raised this with the agency they said we could have a change but would have to pay extra!! There was only one set of towels per guest so I did wash the towels myself (there is a laundry room with washer and tumble dryer) but pulled up short of washing the bed linen (I don't go on holiday to strip beds!!). There is also an additional charge of €150 for 'end of rental cleaning' which we have never come across before, these charges are usually included in the total rental charge and considering the cost of this villa we were not happy at having to pay this additional charge. There is a €250 refundable deposit to pay as well with lots of 'threats' that if you do this, that and the other a deduction could be taken off the deposit. We did get our deposit back 2 weeks after returning home.
A car is essential. There are some beautiful beaches within a half hour's drive and Tossa de Mar is worth a visit. Girona is about 45 minutes and Barcelona perhaps 1 hour. There is an Aldi supermarket at the bottom of the hill within a couple of minute's drive and several other supermarkets in the area around Calonge town. There are no bars and restaurants in the immediate vicinity - again, a car ride away. This is a beautiful area with lots to see and do.
All in all, we had an amazing holiday at Villa Teka and would love to visit again in the future.
