4 Bedroom Detached Villa With Private Pool And Panoramic Views



Updated: 11-Nov-2016
Villa with private pool, panoramic mountain and sea views. Pals, Costa Brava, Spain

This turretted villa, built by a French artist in 1995, is set on a hillside with panoramic views overlooking the plains of Empordà, the Mediterranean sea to the east, the local Mont Gri hill to the north and the Pyrenees to the west. The house is conveniently situated for a choice of good, sandy beaches (nearest 3km) and for a wide range of activities and excursions. The house is equally suited to golfers requiring a choice of excellent courses all within a very short distance, families with children or small parties looking for a base for activity holidays. There is easy access to the main roads and to a good range of shops and restaurants. There is a very good supermarket and bakery at the end of the road, within walking distance. Car essential. The house is owned and used as a family home. Improvements are made to the property regularly, most recently the installation of wi-fi and full air-conditioning. The two shower rooms were completely rebuilt and refurbished in 2013.

From the Owner

We knew parts of the south of Spain fairly well, but work committments drew us to Barcelona and the coastal area immediately to the north. The family's collective 'shopping list' for a house included proximity to Barcelona, skiing, beaches, golf and good tennis facilities. We also wanted what we called a 'holiday view', a view that was far removed from our daily lives near London.

From the Owner

We make very good use of the golf facilities in the area and enjoy skiing, playing tennis, swimming and cycling. We also enjoy all the local festivals and wandering round the medieval villages. We appreciate the excellent shops and bakery just at the bottom of the road. Perhaps most of all we enjoy just lazing round the pool and enjoying evening barbeques on the upper terrace, watching amazing sunsets over the rice plains, mountains and the sea.
