Why Glenys Lewis chose Baix Emporda

Close to beach, shops and restaurants. Very practical, light and easy too look after.

Spacious, central and well appointed apartment on the beautiful Costa Brava coast

  • 5 of 5

This large apartment in the picturesque coastal town of Calella de Palafrugell provided the perfect introduction to our first visit to the Costa Brava: super-convenient; clean and comfortable; and spacious and stylish. The owner, Glenys, is friendly, helpful and always on hand if needed. We can't wait to return! Highly recommended!

Lovely apartment and beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned home after a week's stay. The apartment is lovely, light and spacious. We had 7 adults in our group and we all had a lovely room and plenty of space.

Great location, just a stones throw from the beach. Fantastic cliff walks, and lovely bars and restaurants.

Glenys couldn't have been more helpful, meeting us on our first day and giving us lots of information on what was going on in the local area during our stay.

Very close to the local church and the bells. Glenys does supply earplugs though!! It hasn't put us off as we would love to return if we get the chance!

Superb Apartment & Location

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from this beautiful apartment, it is so well equipped, spacious and comfortable. I felt at home straight away, which normally takes me days to settle in. It got a lovely Spanish feel and is really well located, in a peaceful street just a hop skip and jump to the lovely beach & village Calella De Parafugel of which have a great choice of restaurants. It was great to be able to use beach chairs and umbrellas for the beach. The balcony was so peaceful and to return after a day and just relax with the end of day sun still lovely and warm. The surrounding areas have wonderful beaches, and the old town Parafugel is a lovely town to take a stroll excellent morning market, good selection of shops and great square to enjoy a coffee. Glenys was very helpful, we encountered a problem with car hire at airport on arrival and came to the rescue to take us back the following day. I would definitely recommend this apartment, and we would love to be able to return.

A wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5

I have recently spent a wonderfully relaxing holiday in this apartment with three other friends. Not only was it central, it was well equipped, clean, fresh with plenty of room and space to relax.

The owner couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming and I can't recommend it highly enough.

Perfect for relaxing with no car needed

  • 5 of 5

We were 4 women holidaying together and in need of a relaxing place to chill out - This apartment and the area of Calella certainly ticked all the boxes for us. The apartment was clean and well furnished and decorated - the kitchen was very well kitted out - the bathrooms were good and the showers were extremely good with good pressure and lovely hot water at all times, despite 4 of us showering frequently. We walked along the coast path to the lovely gardens of Cap Roig and in the other direction to the bay at Llafranc and we also took the local bus into Girona to see the flower festival (which was recommended to us by the owner) and was definitely worth the trip. We thought about hiring a car but in the end decided against it and found that we managed very well without it, despite the bus service not being fully operational until June. The Owner - Glenys - was very helpful and provided very good customer service both before the holiday and during it. The weather was wonderful and the location and accommodation all provided the chill out holiday that was just a dream when we booked it in the cold days of January. I would just add one thing - Calella does have a rather enthusiastic town clock - which you do actually get used to - and which I think would be heard wherever you were located in Calella. However I for one would definitely return to Calella and to this apartment again.

Apartment in Calella

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in Calella for a week in June with my two children. I loved the apartment, it was spacious, comfortable and clean. Best of all was the location, right in the village. It was lovely to be able to walk within 2 minutes to beaches, restaurants and shops. It has a large balcony off the kitchen where we ate every day, and plenty of room to relax inside. Calella de Palafrugell itself is very pretty and safe, with pleasant walks along the coastal path to nearby Llfranc. The owner, Glenys, was extremely helpful, and went out of her way to help me with a small problem I had with my rental car. She was absolutely lovely and couldn't do enough to accommodate us. I would highly recommend this apartment in a great spot on the Costa Brava.

  • We cannot emphasise how beautiful and exclusive the town of Calella de Palafrugell really is which makes it an ideal location for family holidays. The town has great walks along the promenades passing old colonial style houses and excellent views of the sea. There is no shortage of good quality restaurants and wine bars in the town most within a few hundred metres. The shops are also within a few hundred metres to purchase food and wines as required. The larger rear balcony of the apartment provides a great location to dine al fresco and to sun bathe.It is south facing and gets direct sunlight for a good part of the day.Access to the apartment is gained via a short normal straight stairway from street level with a hand rail.This is fine for the elderly but the more infirm mray struggle to climb the stairs. The kitchen is modern and has a dishwasher and washing machine. The spacious lounge/dining area provides ample space for everyone to eat or relax.
