Fanstastic Modern Villa, 3 bedrooms, private pool and magnificent views

Overview

Property

Updated: 25-Oct-2016
3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, 6 People

Villa 104 is situated on a quiet estate on the edge of the Gauarres Mountains, above the small town of Santa Cristina d'Aro. It enjoys a spectacular southerly view across a wide valley to the L'Ardenya Mountains and the Mediterranean Sea. At night the lights of Sant Feliu de Guixols and S'Agaro shimmer on the horizon. The villa was built in 2003. Upstairs are two double bedrooms and one twin bedroom, two of which have balconies with beautiful views. The main bedroom has an en suite bathroom. The other two bedrooms share an adjacent bathroom. Downstairs is a large kitchen, dining area and toilet. The living room opens out onto a covered terrace, again enjoying wonderful views. There are steps down to an 8 x 4 metre secluded pool that is ideal for private sun bathing and simply relaxing. The back garden and pool are totally private. The nearest restaurants, shops and beautiful beaches are a short drive from the villa therefore a car is essential.

Golf details: Catalonia is one of the best possible destinations for golf enthusiasts offering 36 courses in perfect conditions on which to play all year round. Two of these fabulous courses are within 10 minutes drive of the villa. The Club de Golf Costa Brava is immersed in the landscape of the Emporda and can be seen from the Villa. The Club de Golf d'Aro (Mas Nou) winds its way through pine and cork forests with amazing inland as well as coastal views.( We have played this one! Every hole is interesting. Stunning views. A good course but not a challenge length wise). Don't forget that the P.G.A. Golf de Catalunya (20 minutes) is one of the ten best courses in Europe and Emporda Golf (40 minutes) boasts 27 of the best golf holes in Spain.

Sea Activities and Skiing: The diversity of coastline enables all water sport activities - visitors may wish to try swimming, sailing, water skiing, windsurfing, kayaking and snorkelling. The ruggedness of the Costa Brava continues under the sea to provide some of the best diving in Spain. In some spots remarkable crimson coral still thrives. Approved tourist diving centres with certified instructors operate at a dozen or more places.

Five resorts, four for alpine and one (Guils de Cerdanya) for cross-country skiing make up the range of winter sport options in the Pirineu de Girona. La Molina, Masella, Vall de Núria (2 hours) and Vallter 2000 (1 hour 45 minutes) have now become skiing classics in Catalonia, at a time of a real leap forward due to improved services and facilities, & areas like Alp 2500 which, thanks to the connection between La Molina and Masella, can offer the largest skiable area in the Pyrenees, with a surface area of 100 kilometres.

Natural Areas and Culture: In the Girona province, the natural parks of the Garrotxa Volcanic Area, Cadi-Moixeró, Cap de Creus, Montseny and the Medes Islands are spectacular areas of unique natural beauty. Nowhere as here has the power of nature shown itself so varied and full of subtlety. Protected natural areas account for 30% of the surface area.

Archaeology: The megalithic monuments of the Albera mountain range, the Serinyà Historic Caves Park, the Cova d'en Daina dolmen in Romanyà de la Selva, the Iberian settlement at Ullastret and the Greco-Roman city of Empúries are millenary testimony that has still the power to surprise and move visitors.

Museums: The art and universal spirit of Salvador Dali head up a list of offerings that must inevitably include the Dali Triangle (the Dali Theatre-Museum in Figueres, the Portlligat Museum-House in Cadaqués and the Gala Dali Castle in Púbol); Girona's Archaeology, Art, History, Cathedral and Cinema Museums; the Toy Museum of Catalonia, also in Figueres.

Tremendous View

  • 5 of 5

We needed a break and just wanted to get away from it all. This place was the ideal location for this. The house is beautiful, clean, comfortable and the kids loved it. The location and the views are amazing with loads of fresh and clean air and the neighbourhood was very quiet, which is what we wanted. The weather was great for the time of year ( it was sunny everyday of our one week stay), but not warm enough for us to use the pool. Instead we went out and about to make the most of the beautiful views. Our favourite places include the walk from San Pol beach at S'agaro, Girona and Barcelona (especially Camp Nou and Sagrada Familia). Driving through the Pyrenees on the way here was also an amazing experience.

We have fallen in love with Catalunya and there is so much more to see and do! we are already talking about our next visit to this region and hopefully the villa.

Lovely villa overlooking valley

  • 5 of 5

Bon dia!

With several sets of friends, I spent four weeks in this well-maintained and furnished villa that was even more inviting than the accurate listing suggests. Although a car is rather necessary, many of us managed the climb to the top of the urbanization (2+ km, 10% average, last km 15%, a few bits of 20+%) by bicycle, but we had to work! The payoff is the delightful view over the valley below, some mornings with a river of fog!

With an excellent grocery store in Santa Cristina d'Aro below (along with other wonderful shops and restaurants), the sights and sounds and smells and tastes of the coastal towns and interesting inland locations are all relatively close. From Villa 104, we explored by car, bike, and, of course, by foot the many wonders of Costa Brava and Catalunya, as kindly outlined by Emma, the easy-to-work-with owner. (Natasha and Herman provide another appreciated service on-site, all contributing to my memorable experience.) We were always happy to return from our days to this modern, well-equipped and terraced property proudly . . . or just spend the entire day there relaxing! It's all good!

Your stay in this part of Catalunya will be memorable for my reasons (food, wine, cycling, vistas, markets, shops, meeting people, etc.), but one reason is your choice of villa rentals. I am confident that I chose well; I hope to do so again soon!

Amazing Views

  • 5 of 5

The Villa 104 is really in an excellent condition and just as described on the website. The property is very clean and well-maintained. Once a week there is a pool service and housekeeping service with change of linen and towels. We had a good welcome in the afternoon by Natasha. In before she gave me telephone assistance to find the Villa on the top of the urbanization. It is located on the peak of St. Christina and gives you fantastic views to the countryside and a part of the seaside. We enjoyed the views and the silence of this house. Since it was very hot these two weeks we were happy with our private pool which had a convenient temperature of around 26°. In the evening when the temperature is more convenient we recommend to have a short visit in Palamos or Tossa de Mar.

Fantastic Views

  • 5 of 5

The villa was exactly as we imagined from the pictures and description and has amazing views. We were met on arrival by Herman who was most helpful and showed us all around the villa, which was immaculately clean & very well maintained. We stayed two weeks and both weeks the pool man attanded to the pool and the gardners came to 'neaten' the gardens. We were supplied with excellent directions by Emma and had no trouble in finding the villa (which must be said is at the top of a very, very steep winding road, not to be tackled on foot ). Santa Cristina has an excellent supermarket providing everything you may need. Our favourite place was San Feliu de Guixols which is a lively small village with a nice beach.

As the weather was extremely hot during our stay we were thankful for the beautiful pool to cool off in.

The villa is excellently situated for visiting the larger towns of Barcelona and Girona.

We would definitely recommend Villa 104 to anyone wishing to visit this beautiful part of Spain.

Love this villa!

  • 5 of 5

To be honest, I didn't know what to expect. This was my first foray into the world of private villa lettings and I was a bit nervous. Especially considering I was doing this with my 8 year old and 2 year old sons, it pretty much had to be perfect - and I wasn't let down.

The villa is in a *beautiful* location. It took us a mere 25 minutes to drive there from Girona airport. Emma, the owner, provided us with an incredibly helpful manual and very clear, concise directions prior to our departure. She was also very happy to answer any queries that we had too. Once there, the view across the valley is breathtaking and unobstructed. Utterly peaceful and lovely.

The villa itself is fantastic. Very well kitted out for every possibility, comfy, warm, cosy and also a great space for entertaining! The pool is lovely (though a bit chilly in early April!). There is a poolside bar-b-q, a poolside shower, lovely landscaped gardens with well-stocked, colourful flower beds. Fantastic! It was very clean and we felt very much 'at home' as soon as we arrived and were greeted by the lovely Natasha.

Due to the fantastic positioning of this villa, we managed to see a huge amount of the Catalonian countryside, beaches and towns. In Emma's manual there was a lot of information about the markets and beaches and places/things to see and do. We were not disappointed! We wanted to stay a lot longer. We absolutely fell in love with the area.

Will we go back? Without question! Will we go back to Villa 104?! Definitely! It's a wonderful base, a home-from-home and a great place to relax and unwind. Luckily you have the option to be an adventurer or take time to chill out. Either will make you incredibly happy.

Since we've been back home, my 2 year old son keeps asking when we can go back to 'his villa'. That, for me, is a striking endorsement! :)

We'll be back

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the villa three times and we will definitely return again. The modern property is beautiful, clean and well appointed – everything you need for a comfortable and enjoyable holiday. Set high on a hillside it has spectacular southerly views across the d’Aro valley to the L’Ardenya Mountains and the coast.

The garden is terraced and well maintained with a patio, pool and bbq. It is a wonderful place to relax or take a refreshing swim.

The nearby village of Santa Cristina d’Aro has all the shops you need including a large supermarket.

There are lots of places to visit all within easy reach. For beautiful beaches it is worth visiting S’Agaro, Sa Conca, Sa Riera, Calella, Llafranc, Tamariu and many more. For interesting and busy resort towns visit Platja d’Aro and Palamos. For sites of historic interest visit Pals, Ullastret, Empuries and of course old Girona. There is a fascinating and well-signed Botanical Gardens at Cap Roig, perched on a headland with spectacular views along the coast.

It is also well worthwhile making a short break visit to Barcelona.

The information supplied by Emma was comprehensive and accurate. We received a warm welcome from Oscar who offered us every assistance to make our stay enjoyable.

All our holidays at the villa have been great and we definitely plan to return again. We have no hesitation in recommending this holiday villa to others.

The villa sits at the top of 'Les Teules' which is a quiet development of individual properties following a steep, winding road. At the bottom of the hillside is Santa Cristina d'Aro which provides the nearest shopping facilities. Within a 10 minute drive you can explore Sant Feliu de Guixols which is a typical fishing town set in a beautiful bay. The nearby beach of S'Agaro is full of charm and boasts some of the most exclusive properties in Spain. Slightly further north, Platja d'Aro offers a livelier atmosphere and a vast array of restaurants. The villa allows an easy drive to explore much of the beautifully rugged coastline and hidden coves...Calella de Palafrugell , Aiguablava and Tamariu are just a few of the spots not to be missed. The local area offers much more than just an amazing coastline. Barcelona and Girona are within an easy drive and the surrounding mountains supply endless walks. The tourist office provides excellent information on a multitude of other activities.

Other Activities: quad biking, go karting, water park, adventure park, football pitch
