Just fantastic

  • 5 of 5

The house was everything we hoped for. Beautiful location in the hills with a great view. We loved everything about it and loved it so much that we will return next year. We enjoyed the swimming pool and the garden area with nice places to sit and relax. The house had more then enough room for all of us (5 person household). The beach and supermarket were a ten minute drive without traffic jams. Nothing more to tell, just great!

Absolutely perfect.

  • 5 of 5

We think the fact that our family have stayed at this property for three years in a row (and hope to come back again in 2014) speaks volumes. Apart from the fact that Calonge, and Catalunya in general, offer a lot for a family holiday, the Dave and Linda's villa is absolutely perfect. It is undoubtedly the best equipped and maintained property we have ever rented. There are local agents who are accessible, helpful and friendly. The pool and the garden are regularly and immaculately maintained. The villa itself is spacious, and although there are other villas around it, it still feels quite private, and has lovely views over the Gavares hills. Dave and Linda have always been fair and reasonable in their interactions with us and a high level of trust has been built up over the years - all they ask is that you respect their property and replace and breakages etc. The only hesitation I have in recommending this villa, is that it may make it difficult for us to get a booking from now on!

Owner's Response: This review is what we aspire to when letting our villa. It is after all our second home and not just another holiday rental. It's a great compliment when we receive repeat bookings for the following summer and confirms they have enjoyed their holiday. With this family in particular it feels like we are letting our villa to friends knowing they will treat it with the respect it deserves.
