About Jackie Jenkins

We are retired headteachers who first visited Tamariu 15 years ago. We returned the following year and bought a small apartment overlooking the sea. 4 years later we sold it and bought Villa Nesprera. It was rather neglected so we refurbished, added central heating and a large sun terrace. We visit Tamariu ourselves in May, June and September, but summer letting pays for the upkeep of the property.

Jackie Jenkins purchased this villa in 2007

My perfect home from home

  • 5 of 5

My best, most relaxing time for years. The villa is a home from home. The sort of place that makes you want to relax and kick back. I've been all over the world but never Spain. The first thing I wanted to do when I arrived was to soak up and enjoy that beautiful house....correction home. I loved the relaxed local life and the surrounding towns are fantastic. Even found an aldi store! A short trip to Barcelona and fantastic scenery all around.

The oddest thing is, all i wanted to do was enjoy the beautiful "non tourist" place that it is. My next visit will be to take my grown up children and grandson with us to enjoy the place again. Can't understand why I didn't do this holiday a long time ago. Enjoy.

This villa is a complete gem of a find! We spent a week here with family with ages ranging from 16 months through to 58, and everyone was completely happy from minute1! The villa is so well equipped, catering for every need- and brilliantly well stocked for toddlers! It is clean and really well maintained, and its position in a quiet close a short

walk to 2 beautiful beaches and the town of Tamariu, makes for a perfect holiday. The surrounding area is totally beautiful, with lots of lovely little towns/villages and amazing beaches within a short distance. Jackie, the owner, could not have been more helpful, providing us with all relevant information and advice before we went, which was invaluable.

In short, we would highly recommend this villa for a really relaxing holiday! The only downside? Having to leave it!

Thank you Jackie!

Lovely stay at Villa Nesprera in Tamariu

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay in Villa Nesprera and it was as good as ever. The villa is spacious, clean, comfortable and very well equipped and perfectly situated for walking down to the beach or an easy drive to nearby towns. It was an easy drive too from Girona airport. The children enjoyed the pool and table tennis at the villa and we all enjoyed relaxing on the terrace.

The beach and surroundings are beautiful - with lovely walks for the more energetic or relaxing beach bars for others. The children particularly love the diving board in the bay and snorkelling around the rocks. They also had a go at scuba diving which they absolutely loved.

We would highly recommend the villa and the area - gorgeous!

Great for a family group

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here in July and had a great time We were a party of 4 adults and 6 kids under the age of 10 and the house was perfect for us. Great outdoor space and the ping pong table and swimming pool got lots of use. A selection of toys were provided - even snorkels which got lots of use.

Tamariu is a lovely place and there was lots of information providde in the house about the area. We loved the village and beach - it is hilly so the small kids sometimes needed a lift up from the beach!

We would love to go back !

Irish-French new year party at "la Nesprera"

  • 5 of 5

We knew Costa Brava before, but not really this part of it . Tamariu in winter is a lovely place very quiet and perfect to walk around specially with such a good weather we had.

The house is great and we felt home as soon as the very first day... Good bedding, very

well equiped kitchen and a cosy sitting room with a very good fire place to chat around,

the week was too short . Lots of nice places very close , shopping easy in Palafrugell,

for all of us ( four couples between late fifties and early sixties) it was all we needed to

take a break...The only regret , it was too early in the year for using the pool ( so we

got to comme back in summer)

The Dubliners and the Toulousains

Tamariu, once a fishing village, is situated in a picturesque bay on one of the most beautiful stretches of the Costa Brava. Its beach has some of the cleanest waters on Spain's Mediterranean coast. A selection of restaurants, bars, small hotels and a diving centre line the waterfront. There are lovely walks along the coast, particularly south towards the neighbouring resorts of Llafranc and Calella. The local medieval villages of Pals and Begur are worth a visit especially on market day. For art lovers, Tamariu is close to the 'Dali Triangle' comprising Casa Museu Dali in Port Ligat, Teatre Museu Dali in Figueres and Castell de Pubol, near La Bisbal. There are numerous championship golf courses within 30 minutes drive. Girona is about three quarters of an hour's drive and Barcelona can be reached in less than two hours.
