First of all Maggie (owner) was extremely helpful and quick with communication. She made me feel like it was important to her to make sure we had an enjoyable stay. She was very informative and even gave great directions from the airport! Her tips for restaurants were spot on (Chez Thomas - my husband and I had an incredible meal).
The villa was clean, well maintained and extremely welcoming. Beds were comfortable. There was a new kitchen which had all the supplies that we needed to make some family dinners. Large sitting area that was comfortable for eight of us and a large dining table so we could have our family gatherings.
The patio was lovely with flowers, plenty of seating, great looking onto the pool and tennis courts. The amenities could not have been better for the kids with the large pool, tennis, basketball and table tennis. There were even tennis racquets and table tennis bats in the villa.
The location was great being only a five minute walk to the beach, shops and restaurants...nice to park the car and walk to everything so we could enjoy some drinks!
Caesar the property manager was very helpful and quick to respond. The DVD player was broken and he brought a replacement the same day, with a smile and "yes" , he represents Maggie well. He also provided me with a map and highlighted some restaurants and places to go. He speaks pretty good English so it's easy to communicate.
Tips: take to snorkeling tour with Triton Diving up the coast and over to the islands. Mark the captain was full of local knowledge it was only €20 each.
Far Hotel next to the lighthouse has amazing views and good food.
Besalu was a magical medieval town.
The markets in Palalfrugell are on Sunday, Palamos on Tuesday.
This villa was worth the visit, we loved our relaxing vacation and were there two weeks.
