Dali-Figueres: Salvador Dali, the great master of surrealism holds a great appeal for visitors to the Catalonia Pyrenees & Costa Brava. Figueres, Portlligat-Cadaques and Pubol (in l'Emporda Catalan region) form the three corners of Salvador Dali's Triangle.

Born in Figueres on May 11, 1904, Salvador Dali became one of the greatest geniuses of the surrealism and one of the most important artists of the 20th century. Its biography and its work extends on the major part of the century and suppose an attractive trip through the ideas, the culture and the art of the Western world.

Salvador Dali's loved the Emporda cuisine. Dali talks about cooking in his book 'The Secret Life' and even dedicated a cookery book to Gala 'Les diners de Gala' (Labor 1974), for which he painted 12 illustrations. The fact that Salvador Dali grew up amidst a family from l'Emporda partly explains his weakness for gastronomic delights and his insistence, from the age of six, to become a cook.

Calonge and it's surroundings: Calonge is within easy reach of Barcelona and Perpignan (France), half an hour from the beautiful city of Gerona. An excellent starting point for visiting all the cultural and natural sites of Catalonia.

Along the coast, between Platja d´Aro and Sant Antoni de Calonge and Palamos, two tourist resorts which share the bay as well as their tourist character with the one mentioned first, there are Sa Cova, N´Artigues, El Comtat de Sant Jordi, Roque Planes, Torre Valentina and Treaumal, attractive places, all of which lie 1km from Calonge inland, a lovely village with a medieval layout crowding around the castle of the Dukes of Sessa, which was built in the XII Century.

Calonge has medieval old centre with narrow streets. It has many remarkable old buildings.

The old maritime part, Sant Antoni de Calonge, has developed considerably through tourism along the beach which continues as far as Palamos. There are plenty of restaurants and bars.

Great house, great beach, great pool!

  • 5 of 5

We returned to the villa for the fifth time this summer and yet again, had a brlliant time. The house is really cool in the scorching Spanish sun, the pool and sn lounging area is perfect for relaxing, and the beach (10 mins walk) is absolutely fantastic - golden sand, with plenty of bars / restaurants close to hand. The kids love the massive expanse of sand and the shallow shore which is great for paddling.

For a more adult focussed night out, you can take a short taxi ride into Playa D'aro, which has lots of bars and restaurants and a very busy, but sophisticated, main strip. Recommend the Cactus Bar!

We also took a walk from the villa to Palamos - again lots to do there and a good way to stretch the legs.

The villa is the perfect base for a great holiday - highly recomended. There is a TV etc inside, but to be honest, we spent the whole time relaxing or exploring.

Had a very good time...

  • 5 of 5

We spent at villa two weeks in this September (2009). It was my family (with two small children) and two of my friends. I have to say that it was the greatest holiday I had during last few years. Villa is equipped with everything one may need. It is only 5-10 minutes walking time to the (great) beach. Supermarket is on the way, so we were shopping on the way back from the sea to the villa.

Weather was great - there was only one rainy day. Water was hot enough both in the sea and the pool.

We barbequed almost every day. Food is good in Spain. One thing to know about shops is that lunch break is from 13:00 to 16:30! The good is that almost all shops are open in the evening.

Please note that villa is on the hill and one part of the road (about 50-70 meters) is going up quite heavy. If you are an old man walking this part of the road may not be very easy.

Funny thing is that taxi driver was not able to find the street even by using his advanced GPS. What was even funnier that people leaving on the neighbouring streets were not aware about name of the villa's street. Hopefully villa owner provided good driving directions so there was no problem. I suggest you print the map of Mas Vila (e.g. google maps) with the street/villa marked on it and have it with you.

We had one equipment accident at villa and I have to tell that owner reacted really promptly and his people fixed the problem quickly. By the way all these people were very nice.

I definitely recommend this villa to everyone. If we visit this area again in the future we are going to rent this villa again for sure. Enjoy!

P.S. Oh, yes... there is no Internet at villa. You'll need to use Internet cafés - I found three of them in some 10-minutes walking distance.

We had a fantastic holiday . Good location, well equiped .

The village is quiet , not much to do in the evening , but for that you can go to Playa d 'Aro ( 2,5 km ) or Palamos.

We can recommend the house to everyone , it's great !!

Nice family house

  • 4 of 5

Our family (six adults and 5 children) had a wonderful time in this villa. It was big enough for all of use and had enough badrooms. The kitchen was well equiped en we enjoyed sitting outside on the terrace. We could even catch the evening sun on the second terrace. The environment has a great variety for everybody. Medieval town villages, shopping boulevards in Platja d'aro, lingering paths along the coast, plenty of restaurants, very good mountain bike tracks, the sea and the relaxed spanish people. A superb holiday location.
