About the Owner

We are a couple in our late fifties, have been married for 35 years, (where did it go!), with two sons who have now left home, and we think ourselves very lucky indeed to own such a beautiful villa in such a beautiful part of the world.

Before building our villa in Calonge six years ago, we knew that we wanted our villa to be in a location:- where we could walk into the local village - which was not overlooked - was on a large, flat plot - was south-facing - and which had lovely uninterrupted views!

It was a very tall order and we had to spend many years waiting for exactly the right location to become available but, in the end, the exclusive development of 'Puig Rosell', became available and we were lucky enough to be on spot to snap up exactly the location we had always dreamed.

A Beautiful Family Villa with Amazing Pool

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 nights in Barcelona ahead of driving down to this wonderful villa. It was peaceful and private, and the children adored the pool. It was difficult to get them away from it! We were well looked after by the the owner before we went to the villa. Great email communication meant peace of mind! Also, Sam was great while we stayed at the villa. The pool was the highlight of our holiday. The house was comfortable and the facilities were spot on. A home from home. We could walk to local restaurants, and the small town, but some of the walk was on the road so you have to be careful, particularly if coming home in the dark! I warmly recommend this villa to anyone, and I would definitely go back there!

Fantastic Holiday at Casa Oriol !!

  • 5 of 5

All our family have had a really fantastic 2 weeks at Casa Oriol.

The villa is clean, airy and fresh - and had absolutely everything we needed during our holiday.

The pool is great, with plenty of space for lounging, and it's very sunny all day.

The garden is large with lots of mature trees and shrubs, which means that there's always plenty of space for everyone to spread out into - and the pergola & hammock were especially popular !! - and we played lots of games on the boules area.

The area itself has lots of lovely beaches within short driving distance, and there are plenty of great local restaurants to choose from.

Douglas (the owner) made the booking process easy and clear, and provided us with all the info we needed before we left. Samantha (the local agent who lives nearby) was very helpful and friendly, and nothing was too much trouble.

So all in all, we had a really special holiday - everything was perfect - what more can we say, except that we will definitely be going back, and we would highly recommend Casa Oriol.

From the Owner

For us, the villa and it's location was perfect in every way - and after many years of research, it was exactly what we knew we had always wanted, and had been waiting literally 10 years to find! We, (and, thankfully, all our guests over the last 5 years), believe that our villa has the unique qualities and attributes which makes it stand out from all the excellent villas you have to choose from and, having had many years of family villa holidays ourselves, we are really happy to be able to offer our villa, and our help and advice, to all prospective guests - in the belief that everyone who has their holidays at Casa Oriol will have a really wonderful and memorable holiday - just as we have done. We are sure you will. Thanks for considering us. Doug and Barbara

Nearest Airport : Girona airport - 45 minutes drive at 45 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Calonge Village at 1 Kilometres Nearest Ferry : Barcelona at 110 Kilometres Nearest Golf : Club Golf D'Aro - 18 hole Championship Course at 10 Kilometres Nearest Train : Caldes De Malavella for Barcelona Express at 25 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : Jct 10 of the AP7 - we provide clear directions.. at 25 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Restaurants 'Can Tia' and 'La Jovita' 5 mins walk at 0.4 Kilometres Nearest Ski : Valter 2000 at 160 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Magnificent beaches nearby - 10 minutes drive at 2 Kilometres Car: recommended


The area is renowned for its long golden beaches, most of which have 'Blue Flag' status, and there are also many beautiful small sandy bays - all within close driving distance. The bustling fishing port, marina, and long tree-lined promenade, at Palamós is less than 10 mins drive to the north (fresh fish on sale here daily). The more cosmopolitan resort of Platja D'Aro is the same distance to the south. Or if you prefer smaller coves, there are plenty, try Calella, Llafranc, Sa Tuna and Tamariu.


Getting to the villa is very easy indeed - with superb road and rail links, and a good choice of airports. Many airlines fly into 'Girona' which is only 40 minutes drive to the villa, and 'Barcelona' and 'Perpignan' airports are only about 90 minutes drive. Although a car is not essential, we suggest that you will get the very best out of your holiday if you have one, and hiring a car is easy. Wherever you are coming from, we will provide you with all advice, and clear directions to the villa.


There are a great number, and a wide variety, of wonderful places to visit, all within short driving distances of the villa. Here are just a few suggestions: Figueres 70km, Girona 40km, La Bisbal 25km, Banyoles 10km, Pals 10km, St Feliu de Guixols 10km, Platja D'Aro 8km, Palamós 5km. You can drive to the Railway Station at 'Caldes de Malavella' only 30km, leave your car free of charge, and catch a train into, and back from, the centre of Barcelona. We'll be happy to help you with full advice.

Special interest holidays:

Many guests staying at the villa have mentioned the very wide variety of bird life on show around the villa and the area.

These have included:- Bee-Eaters - Red-rumped Swallows - Pallid Swifts - Ortolan Buntings - Blue Rock Thrushes and, of course, the beautiful Golden Oriole (Oriolus oriolus) after which the villa is named, because a pair were nesting on the villa plot when we first visited the site.

Also, look out for the Copt Owls who regularly use the top of the poolside shower at night as a lookout post when hunting - we often enjoy watching them when we are sitting out at night on the poolside terrace above the pool.

Further Details:

There are two very good restaurants 'La Jovita' and 'Can Tia', literally 5 mins flat walk from the villa. It's great not having to take the car, but please note that a short stretch of the road has no footpath and very great care must be taken on this stretch. We provide torches for walking down, and back to, the village and the local restaurants at night.

The four-star 'masia' restaurant 'La Figuera' is situated on the hill just behind the villa and is just a few minutes away by car. This restaurant and another villa are to the rear of our villa, but they don't affect our privacy. There are, of course, many other excellent restaurants within close driving distance.

There are two excellent, large supermarkets in the village, 'Valvi', and 'Suma' both within 5 mins drive and, if you don't fancy cooking one night, Suma also has an excellent take-away Rotisseria.

The village also has all the normal butcher and baker shops, banks, pharmacy, medical centre, internet cafe and a very good weekly street market on Thursdays.

If you wish, we will arrange to have our agents, Jim and Sam, meet you when you arrive, to show you around the villa, and also demonstrate how everything works. They live close by and will also be happy to help you out with any problems, questions, or queries, you might have during your stay. They will, of course, also respect your privacy during your stay.

We have been on villa holidays ourselves for many years, and we know how important it is to get your choice right. So, if you would like any further information, we will be very happy to help - maybe with more info about the villa itself? Or, perhaps, email you some more photos so that you can get a really clear picture? Or perhaps provide info about flights, airports, hire cars etc.

Anyway, if you think we can help you with anything at all, please don't hesitate to contact us - we'll be delighted to help in whatever way we can, without any obligation at all on your part.

Doug and Barbara.
