Lovely Apartment in a Tranquil Setting

  • 5 of 5

We're a family of 2 adults and 3 kids (under 12) and had a really enjoyable stay at this apartment in Aug 2014.

The apartment has three decent sized bedrooms, a newly fitted kitchen and a good sized living area opening onto a really generous balcony with views stretching out towards the nearby seaside towns of San Antoni and Palamos and the adjoining village of Calonge.

The apartment is one of only 3 in its building and is set in a very tranquil (and pretty up-market) residential neighbourhood.

It has its own mini swimming pool which is great for cooling off after a day at the beach. It also has a purpose built barbecue area which we used a lot for char-grilling the local seafood produce available at the nearby Suma supermarket.

We parked our rental car out on the road and had no concerns about security etc.

Our experience warrants a five star rating. Don't expect "bling" but expect reasonable space, comfort, tranquility and convenience to a host of local amenities including some magnificent beaches!
