About Nigel Banks

Torre Cal Sada was originally planned and built by our father in the 1970's however, my brother and I have owned and managed the property for the last 15 years during which time it has served as a wonderful holiday home for us, our 6 children (now aged between 10 and 21!) other family, friends and of course clients.

We are very proud of the fact that many clients choose to return to Torre Cal Sada each season, once visited it is never forgotten!

Why Nigel Banks chose Baix Emporda

Our parents built this lovely villa in the 70's and we were lucky enough to be able to buy it from them in the 1990's

My brother and I have improved it, let it for holidays and enjoyed every year in Palamos for all of our adult lives.

We continue to renovate original features to keep the house asnew can whilst making some major improvements such as central heating!

We love other people enjoying our villa alongside the wonderful family holidays we continue to enjoy.

It is a very special place!

What makes this villa unique

Tranquility, fun, wonderful views, space and privacy.

Beautiful property great location

  • 5 of 5

We booked this beautiful villa for a girls getaway, 11 ladies from the UK and France. We were looking for something special and we certainly found it! The villa itself is beautiful and well equipped, with amazing views and the local beach castell is all you could ask for. With Barcelona and Girona close enough for a day trip we all had a fantastic time and would love to visit again.

Perfect homebase for Girona Oxfam Trailwalker

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I participated in the Oxfam Trailwalker in Girona at the beginning of April 2017. We rented the villa as our homebase. It was perfect and very comfortable and we really enjoyed our stay.

The perfect holiday villa

  • 5 of 5

To say that we enjoyed ourselves would be the biggest understatement of all time! We rested, tanned, ate delicious food and drank incredibly cheap but tasty Riocha. Even the five 16 year olds in our party behaved like adults (lounging about by the pool, and some even read books - not me!!). The comprehensive instructions were invaluable in guiding us to beautiful beaches (Castells) and restaurants.

The weather behaved - warm sunshine with a breeze, which meant we not besieged by mosi's!

I even found Solmar, the car hire place at Girona airport!

So, once again, a huge thank you, and we very much look forward to visiting Catalonia again!

Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at Torre cal Sada pretty exhausted, and in need of a good break. We came with some friends, and immediately felt at home. The kids had endless fun in the lovely pool, and we all felt refreshed by the fantastic view down to the sea: a real sense of space which helped smooth away any remaining stress.

There's lots to do in the area - we'd particularly recommend Castell beach, and dinner in Calella and Tamariu.

The villa itself is really spacious and well looked after.

Highly recommended.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week with our four children at the end of July.

I really can't think of a better way to sum the property up then that it is fabulous.

The house is huge so lot of places to hide for a quiet glass of vino/cup of coffee. It is well stocked and the rooms are breezy and (except one) have huge doors opening out onto the balcony so gorgeous at night when you are lying with the breeze coming in.

The pool is absolutely beautiful and extremely well cared for and we also had a few fun nights in the ping pong room.

The location is perfect. You are raised up so have a wonderful aspect down to the sea and over the forests around you. You are next door to a beautiful vineyard - with drinkable wine. You are a hop and a skip from beautiful beaches and Palermos - a fishing town with integrity and a fab food market is 15 minutes away.

All in all a perfect, dramatic, beautiful place....very good value. And yes, we will be booking again next year.
