About Kathryn

We first visited Empuriabrava in 2005 and immediately fell in love with the town and Costa Brava. It is a lovely family resort with long sandy beach. We bought our first property that same year, and the year after bought Villa Freser. Having spent many self catering holidays in accommodation that had insufficient amenities in the house we decided that we wanted to make all of our villas 'home from home' and equipped them with plenty of crockery, kitchen utensils, TV's wifi etc.. to ensure our guests had the best holiday experience we could possibly provide. We have since bought 4 more villas in the same resort and offer superb accommodation and personal service.

Kathryn purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Kathryn chose Empuriabrava

The apartment is in the best location in the entire resort - overlooking the sea front in the centre, just a few minutes walk to everything. Although it is close to all of the amenities the house is set back from the road down a long driveway and is in a little oasis that is peaceful and spacious.

What makes this apartment unique

No car necessary, lots of space for sunbathing, private pool that can be heated from Easter to the end of October for an additional charge. Please enquire for more information.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Accommodation was top notch and in a great location.

Couldn't believe how spacious the terraces were and super pool, it was lovely to have enough crockery especially plastic glasses etc for the pool area. BBQ out of this world - I want one at home.

Ideally located Villa with excellent facilities in Empuriabrava

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week break in Empuriabrava staying in Casa Playa 1 which was ideally located within a few yards of a fantastic beach, excellent restaurants and many other attractions.

It was good to see that money was being invested in the local area with the beach area and parking facilities having been upgraded recently.

We made full use of the villa's swimming pool which was suitably refreshing particular after our long drive down to the Costa Brava and the girls mastered cooking burgers on the barbecue.

Having off-road parking was particularly handy.

The property was clean and well maintained. We had a few problems connecting to the Wifi but this was resolved quickly with an e-mail exchange with the owner.

It was really good to meet John who was our local contact should there be any problems with the villa. He was very friendly and gave us some really good advice on where to eat and places to visit.

Creme De La Creme !!!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Bahia Apartment is ABSOLUTELY PERFECT for that family holiday, or a cosy getaway... the beach is just a few steps away, bars, restaurants the same... NO CAR NEEDED.. the owners agent is great, fantastic, and can help with anything. The villa is totally equipped, and the wifi fab! Great TV system, BBQ, outdoor lighting, Great pool and outdoor area.. loads of space... Tranquil, peaceful, and private... even though it has property around it... private driveway that will easily take 3 cars.. GREAT SHOWER... no trickle and LOADS OF HOT WATER :-)... fully stacked supermarket end of the road... I could go on forever, but, if you have questions... ask... TRUE TO THE ADVERTISING... Great Holiday.. A+

The highlight of the villa is undoubtedly its location. In under a minute you can have the kids playing on the beach so its possible to pop back whenever you feel.

A number of bars/restauraunts are also a stonesthrow away (but not close enough to disturb you). Try Phillipes which is the closest and does fantastic drinks and snack offers, really reasonable.

Monserat Supermarket is also just a 200m away for your shopping, as is the main strip of bars/restaurants.

Pool is heated and huge, theres also a lower paved area for kids to run around.

The villa is basic internally but immaculately kept.

As we went out of season the conservatory was great to relax in as it cooled on an evening.

Highly recomended, we will return!

Owner's Response: We renovated the villa in the winter of 2013/2014 and are looking forward to Stu's return and comments. With the new look I am sure Stu and his family will be even more delighted with the accommodation.

The perfect holiday spot

  • 5 of 5

This was our fifth year in Empuriabrava and our fifth year in one of Kathryn's villas.Previously we never went to the same holiday spot more than once but having found this resort ( so near the french border and the cities of Girona and Barcelona ) and having found Kathryn's villas we have fallen in love with the place.

It truly is the perfect holiday spot. The resort is very European with a wealth of bars and restaurants. Many are the sort of places that remember you from year to year with friendly staff , good prices and hearty meals ! ( the Lemon Chilli for drinks - really great staff .The beach front Blue Sky restaurant , really good food , El Dorado for great steak )

This villa is perfect for us as one of our party has some mobility problems. It is a very short stroll to Empuriabrava's spectacular beach and to all the restaurants , shops and facilities.So a car is not necessary.

The villa is spotless, comfortable and very well equipped with the great bonus of air conditioned bedrooms .The pool is very well kept and there are plenty of sun loungers and outside eating space. Kathryns rep in Empuriabrava ( John ) is on hand to provide advice and a very reliable taxi service !

We have travelled down by train from Paris to Figueras the last two years - a very comfortable journey.

We will be back again next year
