About the Owner
Guestbook comments from the owner
This villa is really convenient for staying of famillies with small children. We were happy to swim in pool with warm water. Even for our children water in the pol was not too cold in this early spring, when nights are still really cold. We have all necessary equipment for preparation food at home and it was easy to prepare dinner with using barbeque. The villa is surrounded by the nice villas with good neighbourhood.

very well appointed villa in quiet location
Lovely property, stayed with 2 younger kids who had a great time in the pool and using UK Satellite TV when relaxing. Villa manager was easy to get hold of when needed and resolved any issues straight away.
VERY NICE AND PLEASANT HOUSE - TO BE RECOMMENDED
We really enjoyed staying in this nice and pleasant house where we had very appreciated holiday. All facilities available EXCEPT one, really embarassing for some of us,... it was impossible to connect to WIFI...
Small points to highlight: one spanish TV channel is missing, the fridge freezed too much.... no so important but may be you could just improve for the future...
For the rest: PERFECT, SUPER.
Places visited/to go: Playa de Palamos, Barcelona, Medieval city of Pals, Figueres (Dali), etc.... FABULOUS HOLIDAY. THANKS.
Lovely villa in quiet area
Villa was very well presented and equipped. The new managing agent was on hand to show us round on arrival and turned up in person to resolve the minor issues we had during our stay. Pool heating was very welcome this early in the season and certainly made the difference for a wussy adult being able to join the kids in the water. The local resort hadn't really opened up for the season but found lots of eating options 5km down the road in Platja D'aro. Barcelona is only an hours drive on the toll road.
Wonderful holiday in a fabulous villa
We had a lovely family holiday at La Pineda. The villa is modern, spacious, clean and had everything we needed to make our stay easy and enjoyable. A car is a necessity but beaches, restaurants and shops are all within a five minute drive. The development is quiet and peaceful but as there are 12 villas it also feels safe and secure. Roy and Frances made s feel very welcome. We would definitely recommend this villa and hope to return in the future.
Best equipped rented villa we've ever stayed in
Lovely spacious, well equipped villa. Tasteful, modern decor. Very clean. Great pool and we spent some lovely evenings on the balcony. Good location. Easy drive to lots of different beaches and some fantastic restaurants. The owners were vey helpful and communicative before our stay and Roy and Frances were a great help while we were there. Would definitely recommend La Pineda and we all hope to go back.
Villa parfaite pour le séjour de 6 adultes
L'environnement est calme. Toutes les pièces ont un bon volume.
Les équipements sont de qualité
Bon chauffage même pour la piscine à cette saison .
Je n'hésiterai pas à recommander cette location.
Cependant je crois qu'il serait préférable qu'une des chambres
ait 2 lits simples au lieu d'un lit double
