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 Baix Emporda

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'.

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!!!

Fantastic stay on Costa Brava

  • 5 of 5

The pool and outdoor areas are fabulous, even better than the pictures! There are multiple areas to sit, which allows you to choose sun or shade. We enjoyed sitting on the upper deck at 8 or 9 pm and eating a late meal in the warm sun. There were plenty of activities to keep our kids busy. The property is in a picturesque setting and very private and quiet. The house was a great base to explore the beautiful beaches, mountains and historical towns of the Costa Brava. We had a great stay and were sad to leave. I would not hesitate to stay there again.

A fantastic holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week. Everything was very orderly, nothing was missing. We felt so welcome with beer and juice in the fridge, and coffee and tea for breakfast.

We hope we can come back next year again.

belle propriété bien équipée

  • 4 of 5

Très bien dommage que nous n'avons pas pu profiter de la piscine chauffée directement mais problème vite réglé.

Autre dérangement important de nombreuses guêpes autour de la piscine (elles avaient fait leur nid dans les transats!!)...

Owner's Response: Ce fut la première semaine louée pour la saison et, malheureusement, malgré mes instructions, le chauffage de la piscine n'a pas été activée avant cette arrivée des invités. L'invité m'a contacté le lendemain (dimanche) et je me suis immédiatement contacté notre entreprise d'entretien de piscine en Espagne pour allumer le chauffage. Cela a été fait le lundi et le client a confirmé qu'il était une bonne température d'ici mardi. Ceci est la première fois il ya eu un problème de ce genre. L'invité aussi m'a envoyé aujourd'hui, une semaine après le départ, et a écrit "Votre villa vaut vraiment le prix même au-delà". Peter Matthews

Très agréable maison avec tout le confort

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé de très bonnes vacances dans cette maison familiale. Tout est conforme aux photos. Idéal pour deux familles. Plein de petites attentions pour se sentir comme à la maison. Au calme. Voiture nécessaire mais les accès aux plages et aux criques sont très faciles et rapides. La région est magnifique.

Owner's Response: Nous sommes très heureux que vous avez apprécié votre séjour et vous remercions pour écrire cette critique. We are so pleased you enjoyed your holiday and thank you for writing this review. We make our villa a comfortable 'home from home' well suited to 2 families and are particularly pleased when our finishing touches are appreciated as you and your party clearly did. Sometimes it is not easy to accurately photograph a property to it's best advantage and I am pleased that you thought the photographs were a realistic representation. We love the region, not only for it's nearby safe sandy beaches but also for the beautiful scenery, rugged coastline and many historic places to visit. Peter and Denise
