About Suzette Jennings

We have lived and worked overseas for twenty years plus. We were married in 2002 in La Bisbal, Gerona, Spain and moved into our brand new villa in October 2003. Our twin boys were born at the hospital in Gerona in 2006 and we have loved living in our beautiful home. Our boys have started at an International School near Alicante where we now live, until the summer school holidays when we return to the wonderful area of Gerona, and our other property in L'Estartit.

Our families, friends and children have been safe, comfortable and have experienced some wonderful times in our villa. It was our first real 'home' and we planted and created our garden areas, and developed and improved the whole pool area with extensive decking, huge conifer trees and a pergola, complete with sofa. Please enjoy.

Suzette Jennings purchased this villa in 2003

Why Suzette Jennings chose Baix Emporda

We got it right when we viewed and subsequently bought our new build villa in L'Estartit. We could have lived anywhere but chose this resort and villa.

The villa is on the perimeter of a residential 'estate' and behind us is a protected wood

Estartit has an attractive marina and port area with great restaurants. The beach is so deep, long and flat which is uncommon on the Costa Brava, with a long promenade.

Keen scuba divers (before the little ones came along) we have almost doorstep access to the Medas Illes. We also have numerous golf courses close by. We love the mountains and have both worked in France, and the villa is only a 90 minute drive to the ski resorts and an hour to the French boarder! We have the choice of shopping in and flying out of Barcelona, Gerona or Perp

What makes this villa unique

The villa is safe! We are so pleased with how the villa and its gardens and pool area are totally enclosed and screened from the street. We love our big, green metal gate that is the entrance into the 'grounds' of the villa. It slides open to reveal a lush garden with jasmine, bourgenvilla, palm trees and a blaze of colour in the summer months. The driveway and car port allows off street parking for 3 cars, great for loading and unloading children (and luggage).

The pool area is gorgeous, screened entirely by 6ft+ conifer tree and faces South! The pergola offers some shade from the intense summer sun plus comfort in the outdoor sofa set we provide.

The villa has 4 bedrooms and really works well for 2 families holidaying together wanting equal space and luxury. The 3 bathrooms provide privacy & convenience.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Fantastic, fantastic, fantastic - 5 out of 5 !!"

"What more can I add - the villa was beautiful, in excellent condition

and with all the conveniences you need for a perfect holiday. This holiday was to celebrate my 60th birthday and we did it in style. The area was lovely and local restaurants were excellent. When things went wrong (the curtain fell down) it was dealt with very quickly and without any fuss. The pool was delightful and the boys (aged 6 and 4) absolutely loved it. The fact that there was a very secure gate to the property meant that we were able to let the boys play without worrying about them. You do need a car for this property."

"Heaven"

"We stayed at the villa in May and from arriving to leaving (which we didn't want to do) we had a wonderful time. It was clean with lovely furniture. Very well kept and spacious. Well equipped with everything you could need. The pool area was fantastic so relaxing and on a night time really romantic. We would recommend this vi

Special interest holidays:

An excellent location for cycling and running, scuba diving and snorkeling. Great for ramblers, windsurfers, kite surfers, and kayaking. Please see 'Golf' above, as this is an ideal base for keen golfers.

There is an extensive cycle network throughout the area, plus we have a protected forest area behind the villa with popular mountain bike routes.

Coast/Beach:

The L´Estartit Beach is one of the the best in the area. A 6km long, sandy beach that gently shelves into the Mediterranean sea. Alternatively, we are located on the Costa Brava, the 'Wild Coast'. It is a ragged coastline with many coves and small beaches providing a fabulous environment to relax and sunbathe or go 'crabbing' and rock pool fishing.

Easy Jet, as well as many other scheduled airlines, fly into Barcelona airport which is a 1 hour 40 mins drive or by train. Perpignan airport is 1 hour 20 mins drive and Ryan Air are there. Please contact owner for website address should you require further details. We would recommend that you hire a car.

Distances:

Fantastic Places of interest all close at hand from your L´Estartit base. Calella de Palafrugell & Llafranc 25 mins drive.

Figueres and the Dali museum 40 minute drive. Gerona 40 minute drive. Local market in L´Estartit every Thursday morning and every Monday morning, 5 minutes away in Torroella de Montgri. First class golf course of Emporda only a 10 minute drive. Cobblestoned and rustic villages of Peratallada a short drive from the villa. Sample the prawns of Palamos & the views from Begur
