We are in a quiet location but near all amenities and only 6 minutes walk to the beach.

About Malcolm and Linda Cork

We are a retired couple and spend as much time as possible in our lovely Villa which means you may find it 'home from home' with all the essentials you would find in your own home. Though we are very happy of course, to rent out to families and friends during the lovely summer weather in this wonderful region of Spain.

The villa is near all the amenities essential for a carefree holiday - good shops, local towns with excellent markets, bars and restaurants and of course, the huge beach within walking distance.

The area also boasts unusual regions - rice growing in the valley and views on a good day, of the Pyrennees mountains in the north.

Malcolm and Linda Cork purchased this villa in 2002

Why Malcolm and Linda Cork chose Baix Emporda

The fascinating features near to us in this part of the Costa Brava (means Wild Coast) eg rice fields in the Ter Valley for the wonderful paella dishes, beautiful orchards, cork forests, medieval history of the Moors, sparkling coastal waters. We have a special love of out of season trips, though even in high season, you will not find Kiss-me-quick hats, English pubs, and fish and chips. Just real Catalan local stuff. Or take a trip north to Andorra for a day's skiing and enjoy fabulous scenery en-route. You are an hour or two's driving distance to explore Girona to the west, Perpignan to the north and Barcelona to the south.

What makes this villa unique

At the villa, you will find every convenience, as this is our home as well as a holiday let. There is central heating for early or late bookings when we accept mid-week bookings to take advantage of cheap flights. So contact us for special discounts for out of season last minute bookings. Excellent local supermarkets open all year round. We only have one holiday home and this is it!

A delightful villa

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely villa. It is ideal for a group of 4/5, or a small family. It is very clean and has all the facilities you might need. The garden is a delight - well planned, with a secluded feel to it. Pool is small but good for cooling off. Malcolm was very helpful and accommodating at every stage of the process. Added to all of this, the Pals area itself is wonderful part of the world (we've been returning now for almost 20 years). Not much more to say!

A very good choice of villa July 2016

  • 5 of 5

This villa has everything just as the description said, with nothing

left to chance, you can tell the owners love this villa to, it is very clean and well maintained

We were only there for one week, but wished we could stay for longer, the area is generally very busy with lots of camping holiday makers, the shops restaurants all very local within walking distance, lots of places to go if you have the time or as we did just chill out in the lovely garden, the pool although small is quite adequate and very clean, or visit the very near sandy beach.

This villa is strongly recommended

Wonderful villa. Would thoroughly recommend.

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful find. An extremely clean and lovely villa with all the essentials needed to chill out by the pool or cook at the villa. We would thoroughly recommend this property. Some really nice local restaurants and the beach is close. Malcolm & Linda were very helpful with any questions we had regarding our stay. Nice and quiet area with access to local shops. All in all, we had a perfect holiday here. We will be back next year!

Lovely area, lovely house.

  • 5 of 5

I can highly recommend this lovely home. It is a great base to explore the fabulous beaches and coves in the area. The good size pool meant we didn't always have to venture out and having a BBQ in the garden, a great supermarket (Jodofi) nearby and a dishwasher was very handy. All rooms including the bathroom and kitchen were spotless and there was plenty of hot water for a family of 4. The road is quiet, and there are a few shops and bars nearby. Communication from the owners was prompt and courteous, they also gave some good ideas of where to go. Overall, a fabulous place for a family holiday.

Great little villa

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here in August and found the villa great, the villa suited our purposes perfectly , that is just to chill out around the pool and do nothing.the villa is on the small side but it did not get hot inside the villa as we kept the windows open all the time. The villa is close to restaurants and shops and of course the beach which was very handy. The only problem , if you can call it that , was there was a few mozzies around at night but after some spray they didn't come around much. The check in staff were great and very friendly and Malcolm always answered my emails if I wanted to know anything. All in all a great villa, highly recommend it and thanks Malcolm, our only real problem is that we had to leave, another week would have been great . Cheers Mike
