About Peter Matthews

Casa Tramontana was designed and built by our family in 1982 following a long association with the area, having spent many happy holidays locally since 1967! It has been used primarily as a family home and is well equipped because we know the challenges of arriving to find limited resources to cook a meal for 8 people!

We and our adult children continue to enjoy happy holidays at Casa Tramontana, never tiring of the tranquility and views from the villa and the lovely Costa Brava with its friendly community and hope our visitors will have the same great experiences.

Peter Matthews purchased this villa in 1982

Why Peter Matthews chose Calonge

Looking at land back in 1982 when we decided to build a home we were immediately struck by this beautiful hillside location, as it has such wonderful views and was suitable to build a split level house on, ensuring that the pool area and terraces are all 'on the flat', which we needed having young children at that time - it also allowed us to fully fence the property for optimum privacy and to keep those same children safe and secure within the area so we always knew where they were - and of course the proximity of fabulous golf courses was/is very appealing for some family members!

What makes this villa unique

The house benefits from secure off road parking (locked metal gates), with a beautifully shaded car port - a joy on hot summer days! All main windows and external doors are equipped with mosquito netting to allow you to keep them open for air flow on hot days and nights, the bedroom windows all have metal grilles so are quite secure when the windows are open. We love the very private location and that regardless of age people find plenty to do when they visit us - both in the area generally or at the villa, whether that be swingball, table tennis, darts, shooting the hoop or just chilling by the heated pool! We have developed a handbook of information for visitors about the area and activities to help your holiday get started. Additionally we provide a wide range of Books, DVDs and CDs for you to use during your stay - as well as free wi-fi and multi-language TV.

We aim that above all else that you find Casa Tramontana a tranquil 'home from home'.

A perfect villa for many people

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time spent in Casa Tramontana. The first time was a week 2016 and we were so fond of the house that we returned 2 weeks this year.

This year we were there with children and grandchildren totaling 8 people. The house fits us with a garden that is completely closed, which feels safe when the grandchildren came along.

Everything is very well organized and we spent most of the days at the house. Some swim in the hot pool others play darts or table tennis. There was always something to do for everyone.

We will definitely come back.

Owner's Response: It is always lovely to welcome returning guests. It is also particularly gratifying to see that the way we have equipped the house is appreciated by our visitors in so many different ways. The security of the property, surrounded by hedges or walls has been appreciated by this guest and additionally all visitors are given keys to enable them to lock the gates if they wish. The outside areas are not overlooked and many holiday makers choose to stay at the house for a major part of their stay.

This is a fantastic house for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of five and had a wonderful time. The highligts were the heated pool, the care package upon arrival and well stocked library of books and DVD. The agency staff were extremely professional and helpful. We would highly recommend this property and hope to be back for another visit.

Absolutely beautiful. Faultless

  • 5 of 5

I would like to thank both Peter and Denise for making our holiday such a joy. Your property is gorgeous and very homely. We have stayed in a few villas over the years and we have never not wanted to leave so much. The location is perfect to get away after a busy day out. The heated pool was awesome and a major selling point for us. We would highly recommend the villa and the owners as genuine. Thank you again from all the jones family.

A Beautiful Property!

  • 5 of 5

Posssibly my favourite thing to do was sit on the balcony with breakfast and read while the house was still quiet! There are numerous areas in the villa to sit, either in sun or shade, as required. The description and photos whilst accurate don't portray how beautiful the property is when seen in its entirety.

The owners are very helpful and willing to answer any queries. A very useful folder of information about the villa and surrounding area is available in the property. Anything you might find in your own home is provided here, the owners have supplied everything, even a second fridge downstairs!

Although you could quite enjoyably spend your entire holiday without leaving the villa, I would recommend a car to see the surrounding region. There are many medieval towns, the cities of Girona and Barcelona, numerous stunning coves for snorkelling and the livelier resort of Platja d'Aro for shopping or nightlife is only 10 minutes away.

Having only returned, I would have no hesitation recommending the villa for a holiday. There is ample room for two families and plenty to keep youngsters, from tots to teens, entertained.

It is a credit to the owners maintaining such a beautiful property. Enjoy!

Half Term Break

  • 5 of 5

Hello Peter and Karen,

Just to let you know we arrived safely home this afternoon and back to a drizzly UK!!

On behalf of both families, we just wanted to thank you both for a fantastic trip...in so many ways.

Both families have two special boys with extra needs, Oliver with ADHA and Harry with Cerebral Palsy(with limited mobility)

A challenge for any family with 'normal' children going on holiday but with these two chaps always a different challenge....

However your Villa Peter, was beautiful with every need for a home from home experience.

Karen- your team were excellent, with a lovely clean villa, fab bag of goodies on arrival and even down to taxi drivers and Rob the gardener!

Thank you for a fantastic week....will tell all our friends and will be back!!!

Casa Tramontana is located on a rural urbanisation; Mas Pere located in the mediaeval village of Calonge, between the coastal towns of Palamos and Playa d’Aro. The beach resort of San Antonio de Calonge is a 15 minute drive away with the larger resorts of Palamos and Playa de Aro also very accessible within 20 minutes. There are good air links (Girona airport 35km; Barcelona airport 125km; Perpignan airport 125km), road (A7 E15 motorway 35km). Airlines serving the airports include the budget carriers Ryanair and EasyJet.There are several excellent golf courses within short drive of the villa.

Catalunya has much to offer: Dali's museum and homes, historic Girona (a largely undiscovered gem of a city), cosmopolitan Barcelona, beautiful coastal or mountain walks, archaeological sites, numerous medieval villages, vineyards and so much more. The area also has many superb restaurants and whilst you may not manage a booking at 'El Bulli' the tasting menu at the elegant 'La Malcontenta' is something very special!

Other Activities: Quad Biking, Go Karting

Golf: There are 8 excellent championship courses and 2 par 3 courses all within 5 - 40 minutes drive of from our family friendly property.

Five of which were voted among the top 50 golf courses in Europe by Golf World.

Costa Brava voted one of Continental Europe’s top three Best Value Golf Travel Destinations

The famous Mas Nou Golf Course, with its incredible views, lies at the top of the mountain directly opposite. Don’t assume that a low handicap ensures you won’t loose a few balls!!! For the less adventurous there are 7 other golf courses at normal altitude! The Club de Golf in Sant Cristina d´Aro, The Serres de Pals Golf Course & The Playa de Pals Golf Course in Pals.

The Challenging PGA Golf de Catalunya Golf Course only 20 mins away, has recently been voted the 3rd best Golf course in Europe 2012


A visit to the ever improving and expanding Emporda Golf Courses is essential.

The Pitch & Putt par 3 golf courses are great quality golf courses, for the more inexperienced, or casual golfers, wishing to enjoy an afternoon of fresh air, and natural settings while chatting and entertaining with friends.

The Pyrenees are an incredible mountain range, and should you find yourself deciding to take a drive to the ski Resorts, there are many places you can stop on the way back to enjoy a warm tasty meal.
