About the Owner
Our family come from the North of England in Cumbria. We first enjoyed holidays in Catalonia over 50 years ago as children and we can honestly say that it still holds the same attraction to return every year as it is a very unspoilt part of the Costa Brava coast.Today, we always enjoy returning to beautiful Calella with our children and grandchildren. It is a perfect family holiday destination, with short flight times to Girona or Barcelona. Road links are now excellent. The apartment offers a cosy and quiet retreat with lovely pool and patio to relax and recharge. You immediately slip into holiday mode on arrival.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Just a quick e-mail to say that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your apartment in Calella de Palafrugell. The aparment was perfect for our needs and it was great to have such a large outdoor area. The complex is beautiful and so well looked after. My son & husband enjoyed quite a few games of tennis and we all had fun in the pool. The location of the apartment was great for exploring Calella and its coastal walks. Thank you again for all your help and advice, it has been an absolute pleasure booking with you.

A very memorable holiday!’ - Walters
From the Owner
“This property was purchased by our Parents after they had enjoyed many years holidaying in the area. It is ideally placed close to all the amenities of Calella and just a few minutes walk to the beaches. We have loved bringing our children on holiday as they have grown up and now our three grandsons look forward to going to Calella for their holidays. They love the pool. tennis court, meals on the patio and going down for the morning croissants. We have always felt the apartment is safe and secure. We have particularly enjoyed the availability of the ground floor patio garden for sunbathing, meals and somewhere for children to play. Although very close to the front of Calella there is resident parking beside the apartment which is very convenient in the busier summer months.”

From the Owner
“the apartment is set in well cared for mature gardens with a larger than average pool and sun terrace which never gets overcrowded and entertains our children for endless fun hours, allowing us some well earned relaxation! The pools and tennis courts are just a few yards from the front door. Over the years Calella has been sensitively improved without losing it's historic charm. There are some interesting boutique style shops and a choice of excellent restaurants and bars to suit all budgets and tastes. The apartment is under two miles from the famous Cap Roig Botanical Gardens which hosts an International Arts and music festival in July and August with world class performers. There are some fantastic walks with spectacular views over the coastline. Palafrugell is an interesting market town with daily fish and produce markets.”
