Guestbook comments from the owner

The villa was lovely, the best maintained villa we have ever had and we have been using villas now for several years. We felt well looked after, the man who did the pool was fastidious in his care. Helen

Everything was excellent and we really enjoyed our stay and had a great time. The Villa itself was perfect and had everything we needed. Sandra and Ken were most helpful and friendly. So we had a great time. The only problem was it went too quickly !!Hopefully we make it back again sometime.

We have been trying to sort out holidays dates for next year. We would like to revisit the Castle in 2012 we all really like it there. Blossom (2011)

A lovely holiday in L'Escala seems like a lifetime ago! We had a fab time in the villa, and loved the resort. You were both really helpful and it was a nice feeling knowing there was someone on hand if help was needed.The house was great. Heath family (2011)

Lovely clean and spacious house in great location

  • 5 of 5

Arrived a little later than expected due to traffic but this was not a problem for Ken and Sandra who met us at the house and showed us around. They gave us a quick resume of the area and left us with maps and brochures and an idea of where to go and what to do. The house and pool were well maintained, Ken came out every few days (early, we rarely saw him) to maintain the pool, and nothing was too much trouble when required.

The house is in a quiet location, it is only a 10 minute walk down to the front, slightly longer coming back as it is a steady incline, but should not pose a problem for the less mobile.

The property has the benefit of a very large outdoor space, with mixed sunshine and shady areas over two levels, with the pool seeing the sun for the majority of the day.

I would definitely recommend this property, we stayed as a family with 3 children ranging from 7 to 21 years old, the area offers something for everyone.

I would stay here again if we revisit this area of Spain.

Just whats required!

  • 5 of 5

2nd stay following last years great stay. Ken and Sandra couldn't be more helpful with the villa being spotless. Just like being home from home! Only 15/20 minutes walk straight down the road to the beach and all the bars and restaurants.There are some great local restaurants serving great food at great prices. The villa is more than big enough with a lovely swimming pool. Its also very quite at night which makes for a late start the next morning. Very highly recomended

Just a great holiday!

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed many times in the area and this is great villa for a relaxing family holiday. Sandra and Ken couldn't be more helpful. Upon arrival we met at a convenient location and Sandra and Ken showed us to the villa. Cleanliness was fantastic and everything you require was there. The villa is not on a main road side its quite at night but near enough to walk to the beach. The pool was lovely and everything you could ask for. A great place to explore from including spending a couple of days in Port Aventura for the thrill seekers.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Girona at 50 Kilometres Nearest Train : Flaca at 25 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : AP7 at 20 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Riells at 800 Metres


Approximately 10/15 minutes walk to Riells beach with its bars, shops and restaurants. A car is recommended if you wish to explore the other beaches in the area. A very pleasant, but longer walk into the old centre of L'Escala with its two smaller beaches. All the beaches in L'Escala are child friendly and have been awarded EU Blue Flags for a number of years. Lots of entertainment for children at the beaches and water sports available locally.


Closest Airport is Girona which is approximately a 40 minute drive and served by many of the budget airlines. Perpignon airport is approx 1 hour by car and Barcelona is approx 2 hours away. We do offer reasonably priced airport transfers to our clients please enquire when booking. Car hire is not essential but recommended if you wish to explore the area. We recommend you check online for special rates during the period of your stay.


Apart from the local attractions of L'Escala, including it's many festivals and the Roman ruins in Empuries, it is a great place to explore the Costa Brava. The City of Figueres famous for the Dali Museum is approx 25 minutes drive away. Girona city centre is 45 minutes away by car and Barcelona is 1.5 hours away and a wonderful city to spend time exploring. Being so close to the Pyrenees there are towns suchas Olot and Banyoles in the foothills that are interesting to visit.

Further Details:

Water sports are very important in L'Escala and are easily accessible. A wide variety of cuisine and shops are found in the locality. The closest water park is in Roses and is very popular.
