Space 1,937 sq. ft.
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

Self catering rental 4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, sleeps 8, near beach

We fell in love with this location, on a quiet hillside with extensive wooded views and the sea in the distance. Bell Lloc, situated midway between the hamlet of Romanyà and the village of Santa Cristina d'Aro, the proximity to a good choice of restaurants and several 18 hole golf courses, the beach at S'Agaró being only 10 mins away. Girona Airport is 20 mins drive and Barcelona is reached in just over an hour's drive.

We had the house built to our design, with a feeling of light and space exuding from the airy living room and well fitted kitchen at one end, whilst the large windows open onto a wrap around terrace overlooking the large swimming pool and ample garden beyond. The furnishings have been carefully chosen to be comfortable but yet practical for family use, and with 2 bedrooms and a bathroom at each side of the house, sharing families or groups of friends will retain their privacy.

Ideal for summer holiday rental and also for touring Barcelona, Girona and Costa Brava

Guest Comments: James,

I would like to thank you for giving me, my family and friends the best holiday. Your villa was fantastic and really made our holiday special. The accommodation was perfect, it was truly a home from home, the furnishings and fittings were first class and there was more than enough crockery for the 8 of us. The pool also was large enough for all of us and our inflatables! Another great asset is that it was perfect for 2 separate families as it gave each of us privacy and space. It was these wee touches that has made you villa different from any other.

I would be interested to know if you have any other villas elsewhere and i will certainly recommend this villa to me friends and work colleagues. I hopefully will also be fortunate enough to visit this one again.

Thanks once again.


Guest Comments: James,

Sorry I haven't replied earlier, had a fantastic holiday in a fantastic villa, and I've recommended it to friends and family.



Hi James.

The weather was fantastic and it was a little surreal watching the news reports about the floods and rain back here in the UK. It kind of made us enjoy the holiday that much more.

We had a wonderful time at your villa. I will also be recommending your villa to my friends & colleagues etc.

Anyway, thanks for everything and all the best.

Dear James,

we have just got back having had a wonderful time at your villa in Spain.

The Villa was spotless on arrival and the food pack was welcome as we arrived to late to get to the shops.

Thank you

David Shotton


Just to thank you for a great villa. We have a fantastic time and would definitely consider it for another holiday. Everything was fine and we didn't break anything.



Guest Comments: Hi James

Your villa was a dream, for the 1st time ever we did not want to return home after a holiday, the only downside of our stay was having to close the gate for the gate for the last time.

It is a really homely villa, we felt we could relax and still respect your property without worrying, it was clean, spacious and well fitted - what am I talking about that's nothing like home!!

we did venture to the top of the hill and had tapas in the closer of the 2 restaurants, new waiter and very friendly with an excellent command of English (and about 3 other languages as well- put us to shame).

we went to Barcelona 1 day, parked the car at the station and caught the train in, only about 20 euros each and free parking for the day, and we got off right in the centre of the city- very good as parking was about 15 euros for the day, even if we had a mind to travel the minefield of the roads and find a space, so that was a great tip that you passed on.

Why James or Philippa chose Baix Emporda

We were visiting the area and fell in love with the Costa Brava, in particular the area between Girona and the Coast. We have enjoyed 14 years of holidays as our boys have grown up holidaying in Spain.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a lovely time and apart from Friday (which was overcast) the weather was amazing. We thought the Villa was beautiful, garden ideal and the location perfect’ - Jenny Hamilton

‘We enjoyed our stay at your peaceful villa. We did the short coastal walk that you suggested which was excellent. There are other good coastal walks too. The trip to Girona was excellent as well’ - Colin Cawley

we had a fantastic holiday thank you. Your house is truly lovely and we had a great time. The only comment I would make is that your description on the Owners Direct website does not do the property justice as we all commented on how it was much better than what we were expecting.

Jackie was very nice and helpful too.

I'm sure I will be in contact with you again early next year and I would not hesitate to recommend you to friends and family.

Had a lovely stay, nice and quiet.

Great villa with plenty of space.

Good location, car needed though.

Had lots of fun in the heated pool so we could maximise our time in the pool.

Thank you.

Excellent, neat tidy, spacious with a great pool

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful large villa with excellent large gardens and a large clean pool.

Accomodation was superb, very clean and the service from local rep - Zac was excellent.

hte 4 bedrooms were well proportioned and the living / dining area was so big.

omnly pronlem was trying to fit the tables together so all 8 of us could eat on the verandah

Although inland and a car is required, it is very well situated for so many of the wonderful beaches in the area.

Certainly recommend this property and will probably use it again in the future.

Spanish Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The villa exceeded all expectations. It is light, spacious, spotlessly clean and equipped with everything we needed; perfect for a shared family holiday. The pool and garden, in a beautiful setting, were the focus of our activities and with two lively football-mad boys, ticked all the boxes. It was difficult to drag ourselves away but a visit to Barcelona by train from the local station, was one of the many highlights of this wonderful holiday. The local supermarket was clean and well stocked, providing super ingredients for the barbecue. There is a good range of restaurants in S. Cristina and the surrounding area. The nearby beaches are superb. Many thanks to James for all his help in preparing our visit and to Zac for his while we were there.An outstandingly great time was had by all and we, the Jarrett Family, will return.

Ace Villa

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic villa. Pool and garden superb. Area quiet and not overlooked at all. Definitely recommend this villa we were a party of 7 adults and one baby and had plenty of space. Our son made good use of the TV, DVD etc as he burns in the sun which was good and gave options to escape the heat. Plenty to do and see in area and owner always helpful.

It was great to come back to this lovely villa after holidaying there, virtually every year when the children were little. The villa is just as perfect as when we first visited. The addition of free wifi was a bonus as was the shelter constructed at the end of the pool.

We will be back again. Thank you for sharing your home with us.
