    Just a quick e-mail to say that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your apartment in Calella de Palafrugell. The aparment was perfect for our needs and it was great to have such a large outdoor area. The complex is beautiful and so well looked after. My son & husband enjoyed quite a few games of tennis and we all had fun in the pool. The location of the apartment was great for exploring Calella and its coastal walks. Thank you again for all your help and advice, it has been an absolute pleasure booking with you. Hetherington Fam Edinburgh.19th July 2011.
