There are shady areas under the trees in which to eat or simply relax. Especially suited for families with younger children the garden is enclosed and the private pool, which is visible both from the terraces outside and the living room within, has a separate children's paddling pool end. The house is great for families - the pool is in the sun from early morning to late evening - meaning it is one of the warmest pools we have ever come across. With the added benefit of a paddling pool end and roman steps into the the main pool.Suitable for golfers with excellent golf courses a short drive away.

Why Vicky Grandfield chose Baix Emporda

We booked a holiday ourselves in Casa Sant Roc on the recommendation of friends who had stayed at the villa themsevles. As luck would have it, the owners had put the property on sale that week. As the saying goes 'we loved it so much we bought it' as our family holiday home. We had fallen in love with Catalonia on a previous holiday and even today find new and charming places to visit, with every activity we can think of within reach.

We found Casa Sant Roc was ideally located to easily get around and enjoy the diversity that Catalonia has to offer - the mountains, beautiful countryside, the sea, quiet coves/fishing ports (Palamos), busy holiday centres - with shopping, activities, waterparks etc (Playa D’Aro), cultural trials (Dali and Medieval legacies), and splendid cities (Barcelona and Girona), whilst the house itself is in a peaceful location near the traditional Catalan town of Calonge nestling under the Gavarres hills.

What makes this villa unique

We fell in love with Casa Sant Roc as the house has a large, level,south facing garden (quite unusual in this part of the world). The house is great for families - pool in the sun from early morning to late evening - meaning it is one of the warmest pools we have ever come across. With the added benefit of a paddling pool end and roman steps into the the main pool. A lawn for kicking a ball about on or playing badminton. Shaded areas to sit and several outside eating areas. The house has a terrace for sitting on, built in BBQ and outside sink together with outside dining room.

Guestbook comments from the owner

'we had a great time there and were really impressed with the villa, I would definitely recommend it to friends and family.' Mr B, April 2008

The Villa was absolutely delightful, with a wonderful swimming pool and garden which were perfect for our two young children. The property was very well equipped with lots of nice personal touches which made it feel like our home for the fortnight. I would highly recommend this villa to other families especially those with young children' Mrs B, August 2008. The Villa is a wonderful place to have a holiday, it is very pretty and is well furnished,

The garden is very large and private , we very much enjoyed the pool and Bar-B-Q area. The surrounding area has many things to offer beautiful unspoilt beaches , very good shops and many places of interest all within a short distance. Mrs S, Sept 2008

Beautiful villa - great garden and location

  • 5 of 5

This property is in a peaceful location surrounded by the Gavarre hills. The house is well equipped including a table tennis table and swimming pool toys for children. The gardens are beautiful with a variety of seating in the sun and shaded areas. There are a variety of beaches (driving distance) and towns to visit and Barcelona is a day trip away. I would highly recommend this villa.

The villa is beautiful and perfect for family stays. I loved it so much, very peaceful, very private (how I like it) and I would highly recommend to everyone. The owner, was extremely helpful, polite and prompt with replies. So thank you for everything and would definitely return.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week. The house inside is basic, but clean. And there osno need to go inside because the garden, bbq and pool are great. If complete silence is what you're looking for, this is not the place. You can hear the neighbours from both sides. For us no problem.

The big trees on the foto are gone, to sit in the shadow you have to search a little but the garden is so big that there is allways a shady spot!

Location great, beaches and nice villages at short distance.

5 stars!

Owner's Response: So pleased another family have had a fantastic holiday in our villa - enjoying the comfort of a well equipped/clean home and fabulous garden, pool and great location for beaches, medieval villages and shopping/restaurants in nearby towns and I look forward to welcoming you back in the future. The trees had to be removed as the roots were interferring with the pool so we have put new trees in further away from the pool and installed a pergola for extra shade.

Lovely villa with fantastic garden

  • 4 of 5

We have had a lovely week in this villa and particularly liked the outside space (to be honest we were barely in the house). The pool is lovely and there is plenty of loungers and seating areas including a dining table which seats 8.

The villa has absolutely everything which you would require - the kitchen is quite small but very well equipped and there is a barbecue outside too. No air conditioning but there are fans in all the bedrooms.

The areas itself is great. The village is well worth a visit with a lovely old square, church and castle. It also has a few small shops and a great small supermarket. There lots of bigger supermarkets about too.

A short drive takes you to the beach at St Antoni and further afield the beaches at LLafranc and La Fosca are good. I love Tamariu too with it's restaurants right on the beach. Begur in the evening is just lovely with music in the main square and a lovely family atmosphere.

Overall I would thoroughly recommend this villa for a relaxing family holiday.

Had a really good holiday enjoying the beautiful garden and great pool in peaceful surroundings. The

villa very clean and had everything - home from home and the bedrooms are a good size. Had lovely days out in local

area - beaches, coves and wooded walks. Loved the local waterpark too!

Lovely villa in fabulous garden with great pool

  • 4 of 5

We have just returned, having had a lovely stay at the villa - it was compact with everything we needed. The garden and the pool are beautiful. There was also the added benefit of table tennis - great for keeping the kids happy.

The villa is located in a quiet urbanisation but is yet within very easy reach of beaches, supermarkets, shops etc. The surrounding area is well worth visiting - small medieval villages, fishing ports, etc Palamos, Pals, Begur, Callela de Pallafrugell, Pubol are a few we would recommend visiting). The villa is not far from a wide range of activities - scuba-diving, sailing, horse-riding etc. There is also a good range of restaurants in Calonge/St Antoni di Calonge and the neighbouring towns/villages. The villa is not too far from Girona or Barcelona, which are also worth visiting. The only downside is that there were only a few (news) channels on the TV. It would have been nice to occasionally to relax and watch TV in the evening. Otherwise, I would recommend the villa - we had a really lovely time. Thank you Vicky (owner) and Karen (manager).

Owner's Response: I am pleased to hear you all had a lovely holiday and enjoyed the villa and garden and the variety of local attractions on the doorstep. We have been looking at ways around this issue of TV channels where the BBC have blocked transmitting to Spain, (involves logging on to an IP address in the uk and streaming which is a bit too complicated - for me anyway!) and will hopefully have a workable solution before next season. There is internet where programmes can be streamed and plenty of DVDs.
