good memories / mooie herinneringen

  • 4 of 5

Now it's getting colder in Holland we think back of our lovely sunny stay in "les Roques". The house and the garden were beautifull and we had a very warm welcome by Jane and Linda, who suprised us by cool drinks in the fridge after a long day of traveling from Holland to Spain. Our sons (16 and 18) specially loved to chill in the dip pool, wich was bigger than we imagined from the pictures. The house is well located to visit the ancient towns, the musea the countyside and even the sea side (although it was almost impossible to find a qiuet shore in high season, but that's what you can expect in Spain). The surroudings turned out te be excellent for cycling, which my husband loved to do specially with Richard.

The only points of improvement could be aircoditioning in the house when the summers in Spain will stay this warm as last year and some kind of invention to keep the musquito's out of the garden. (But I'm afraid that doesn't excist:)

Jane, Richard and Linda we thank you again for 2 lovely weeks.

Fantastic apartment in lovely area

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is fantastic, it is really well equipped (from the kitchen to kid's toys) with everything you'd need for a week or more stay. It is in a quiet & peaceful location with a lovely garden area to sit out in & a brilliant little pool to cool off in. It is a short drive to many attractions & amenities including beaches & Girona but there is a bar/restaurant just a couple of minutes walk away if you don't want to venture too far. The owners were wonderful, very helpful & a pleasure to meet. I can't recommend this place highly enough & am sure we will be staying here again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for great review Mike, We always try and make your holidays here in Les Roques, the best!!!!! Especially for you because it was the first abroad holiday for your baby boy, who seemed to enjoy all the attention, with his happy beautiful smiley face. We here in Les Roques think that getting the things right for children ( how ever old they are) means happy kids and more important happy, relaxed parents. Your holiday was also special as you attended your friends grand wedding, which sounded wonderful. We look forward to seeing you again here in sunny Les Roques, Catalunya. Jane, Richard & Linda

agréable séjour chez Jane, Linda et Richard

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons découvert la région de Gérone grâce à la bonne situation géographique de l'appartement.Nous avons pu découvrir la région volcanique et profiter des plages. La location est très agréable et dispose de tout ce qu'il faut.Les propriétaires sont de très bons hôtes et nous avons été accueillis merveilleusement. La petite "glacière" est suffisante pour les enfants surtout après avoir marché toute la journée.

Un grand merci aux propriétaires qui nous ont ouvert la porte de leur maison pour nos vacances.

Wonderful stay ,wonderful house ,wonderful people!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic place to stay!The apartment was perfect for the four of us- a family of 4 with two teenage daughters. We loved the garden, which was beautiful and so much nicer than in the photo, the dip pool, the peace and quiet. Jane, Richard and Linda were very welcoming and always ready to help. Their dog Barney is so cute! Property very clean , well maintained and very well equipped. The house is very well situated to visit the coast, the mountains, Girona and Dali museum. The Hotel Les Roques with its free use of swimming pool and it's excellent value meals was a great bonus. Some good local walks and running routes from the house. Would thoroughly recommend it. Thank you Jane, Richard and Linda.

Affordable, well equipt conveniently situated apt

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very clean and well equipt , with everything you could need for a holiday plus more, including a dip pool and a lovely garden. It was also very conveniently situated for visiting for the many things we wanted to do and places we wanted to visit. We visited places of local interst including Figueres and Cadaques and further afield places such as St. Andre, Colliure and Aregeles in France, and Portaventura which was about a 2 hour 20 minute drive on the motorway. There was plenty of information on local places to visit in the property as well as local and national maps, and suggestions for day trips to local medieval towns and markets, most of which we did and wouldn't have known about otherwise.

The owners provided a good customer service and were there when we needed them. For example a key broke in the lock during my visit and they were able to provide me with another one immediately.

I would fully recommend this property as a convenient and affordable place to stay near many of northern Spain's major attractions and I hope to return again at some point in the future.
