About Mary or Gary Taylor

Seventeen years ago we came to live in the Costa Brava with our 3 children. Nine years ago we bought "Chickadee" our second villa, and have enjoyed having visitors come to what we consider to be a small piece of paradise. As we also live nearby, our local knowledge regarding restaurants, beaches, golf courses, etc, etc, has been extremely helpful to all our guests, and we hope many more.

Mary or Gary Taylor purchased this villa in 2008

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dave: We had a fantastic time in the area and loved it and were very happy with the villa which suited us perfectly. We would highly recommend it and if we are planning to take a trip to Spain around the same time next year would definitely return. The space, location and independence of the villa was great.

Lisa: The villa is situated in a superb location with woodland surrounding and the nearest neighbour just in view through the trees. The garden is beautiful and really large with lots to explore. The villa itself is immaculately clean and really well equipped. It has been very tastefully and comfortably refurbished. A car is a necessity as the villa is situated at least 5km from the nearest beach/shop. The location is brilliant only 25 mins from the airport, and only 5 to 10 mins away from lots of different beaches and towns. The owners of the villa are on hand and close by and really helpful.

Clockworkcrewe: Thanks for making our last minute holiday so enjoyable!

Wonderful family holiday

  • 5 of 5

What a super holiday we had indeed. It is a very child friendly house with a lage pool.Perfect for kids of all ages. Ours (9,5+3) loved it and we could hardly get them out of the water.The friendly owner came every day to check the pool and to water the plants, plus he was a great guide to show us the best tapas bars etc. He could have not been more helpful.Only 10 mins from the beach and shops as well. Can recommend it to every one. It is worth the extra money as you have your private villa plus pool which is so relaxing. Priceless!
