About the Owner

We are Jan and Mihaela and live and work in Antwerp in Belgium. After spending a good time together, we got married in 2011. Our daily lives are busy, we both have demanding jobs. Our second home in the Costa Brava is just perfect to relax and to recharge.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have spent a long weekend in Vila Almendra in Costa Brava and we absolutely loved it - we would have stayed longer if only that would be possible.



The house itself is very modern, recently renovated, very spacious and bright with all modern facilities, fully equipped kitchen and is very tastefully furnished and decorated.



The best part is the porch where we have enjoyed our breakfasts and dinners overlooking the big garden with the private swimming pool – beautiful, peaceful and serene place.



To the closest (very nice) beach it is only 5 minutes driving, but number of other secluded beaches and coves can be found within 30 minutes driving, as well as many restaurants and cafes.



Summarising: highly recommended!

FANTASTIC VILLA

  • 5 of 5

Suffice to say, the very first thing we are thinking about on our return is looking at dates to re book for next year! For a last week of the holidays trip, my father, daughter and I (with a 3 day visit from my mother too) rented this wonderful villa at the foot hills of Vizcondado De Cabaynes - an urbanization of locals and foreigners just above the pretty village of Calonge and a 25 minutes drive from the perfectly located airport of Girona.

There is always that underlying dread that you have picked a nightmare rental that looks great in the photos but the reality is an ITV "holiday nightmare" (I am reminded of truely horrible childhood rentals in pouring rain Northern France - mice included) - however we arrived to be greated by the wonderful Gina who takes care of the villa for the owners and was hugely helpful and very welcoming. The villa was everything and more that we could have wished for - clean, comfortable, perfectly located, every necessity taken care of and even a number of inflatable pool friends to keep my extemely excited 6 year old very very happy,and hang on, I forgot to mention the welcome bottle of cava, ground coffee and water!

The villa itself in on a suprisingly large plot - so plenty of room for a very well sized pool and lots of garden (which is certainly not standard as far as villas in Spain go). The best bit is the separate "casita" - so the main house consists of 2 double bedrooms and an extremely nice bathroom (bath included!!!) but attached the side of the house - so out of the kitchen door and its own private entrance, is the casita which houses a further 2 double bedrooms and a fantastic shower room - this not only satisfies a family overflow, a sharing of family holiday but in our case and VERY welcome escape for my fathers snoring - tenfold worse than normal with the addition of the well priced Spanish vino!

For me - this is a review based on years of experience - I not only lived and worked 5 minutes down the road from the villa for 10 years but whilst I spent most of time selling / building and buying properties, I spent holiday seasons renting out and managing properties purchased for my clients (including my own) so I like to think I know what is expected and what should be provided - I can tell you quite honestly that this particular villa ticks all the boxes and so much more. The owners have renovated the property with a luxury rental client in mind there really is nothing lacking - FULL STOP!

Fantastic Villa near the Costa Brava Coast

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent 2 fantastic weeks at Villa Almendra and have really enjoyed our stay. The villa is beautiful, very modern and finished to a very high standard. It is well equipped with everything you need and was very clean and well kept. The pictures do not do the villa justice and it is much bigger than we expected. We were a party of 2 families with 4 adults and 4 children and there was plenty of room. The kids loved the pool and playing in the garden. The village of Calonge is very pretty with a lovely square and a few nice restaurants with live music in the square on the nights we ate there. There are some beautiful little coves to explore within a 30 min drive and Girona and Barcelona are also near to visit for the day. Jan was very helpful with tips on where to visit and responded very promptly to our queries. Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable. We would definitely return! Sarah, Nicci and families.

De superbes vacances dans la villa Almendra !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé 2 excellentes semaines sur la Costa Brava dans la villa Almendra !

La villa a un emplacement idéal pour profiter de la méditerranée ou se balader dans les villages de l'arrière pays. Barcelone est également très accessible.

Jan, le propriétaire, met tout en oeuvre pour que vous puissiez passer de très bonnes vacances dans sa villa. Il prend de vos nouvelles et répond à vos demandes.

La villa est très bien équipée et nous avons bien profité de l'intérieur qui est très moderne, du jardin, de la terrasse ombragée et de la belle piscine !

Nous garderons un super souvenir de nos vacances grâce à la villa Almendra !

Amazing, stay at Villa Almendra, it is all here!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stay at Villa Almendra was perfect! The villa is spacious, tastefully decorated and modern. It's pool, garden and surroundings are tranquil and comfortable. Pool is very clean and beautiful! The covered outside area by the pool provides a perfect dining area for those who love eating outside, we did not have one meal inside as it was perfect! The 4 bedrooms inside are very clean and beds comfortable, with two bedrooms located in the main part of the house and two bedrooms with a separate bathroom in a remote side of the house connected through the kitchen. This allows for some privacy if multiple families are vacationing together. Kitchen is modern and equipped with everything you need if you desire to cook and more. Living room comfortable with the overall geometry of the house lines peaceful and relaxing. There is a little nook attached to the living room with a small tourist/traveler library, the owners tock it with plenty of interesting information about the local area and guides in many languages that help you plan your days. We used the maps and brochures extensively and followed the recommended routes and enjoyed our trips to interesting surrounding towns and beaches very much. The villa itself is located in a quiet and very safe side of town however it is very strategically located with easy access to the highway and multiple places of interest. Towns of Girona, Besalu, Palafrugell , Pals, beaches of L’Escala and Begur as well as outstanding shopping of La Rocca village outlets were some of our favorites. We loved our vacation at Villa Almendra and Costa Brava and hope to return as many times as possible. The hosts Mihaela and Jan were very accommodating and provided us with plenty of information about the house and the area. The local support staff, for the house and the pool was also very friendly and helpful.

This villa experience leaves nothing else to be desired - look no further as this is perfect for a vacation for one large family or two families vacationing together! Exceptional place!

Une maison de rêve dans un coin de paradis

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine fabuleuse dans cette villa grandiose, à proximité des plages et des criques toutes plus belles les unes que les autres.

La maison est équipée et meublée avec beaucoup de style. Le propriétaire est serviable et toujours disponible. Je recommande vivement cette location où il y fait très bon vivre. On a même du mal à la quitter!!

Hasta pronto!

Location

From the Owner

We decided to buy the villa in 2013 to enjoy high quality time in a suvch a diverse part of Europe. We have sea, mountains, and culture, and last but not least excellent restaurants so nearby that we never have a problem to explore something new. We spent a great part of 2013 and 2014 to renovate building and garden, which allowed us to add our personal details. We are very pleased with the process and result, not in the last part to allow us to meet wonderful people. We decided to rent out the villa mainly in the high season. Our first year 2014 experience was just great, we built some wonderful contacts with some of our 'customers'. We could not have imagined how much fun it is to share our experiences and house with families who are looking to just relax their well deserved holidays in an area that we truly love!
