About Angela Fisher
The Villa was purchased in May 2012, since then the property has undergone many improvements and changes making it a truly lovely holiday home.
I stay in an apartment underneath the villa with its own entrance and exit. I manage the house, garden, pool and rentals. The Villa, pool and garden are for the exclusive use of the guests renting.
I will be here to meet you on your arrival and to ensure your stay is as enjoyable, relaxing and comfortable as possible and that you have everything you need.
Additional services include babysitting, dog sitting/walking, shopping service, laundry & additional cleaning and English classes (TEFL qualified 2005).
Head of Security: Valentino and his assistant Storm, two friendly cats.

Why Angela Fisher chose Baix Emporda
It's a peaceful location with everything close by including the sea and its beautiful beaches, nature and walks just a few paces away from the house. The house itself has views from every window that make you smile. The 8 tall palm trees play their music in the breezes and tramontana winds. A wonderful space and in minutes by car, you can be in Platja D'Aro - a busy town which offers a host of restaurants, bars, shopping and nightlife. The coastline has an array of beautiful towns, villages and beaches to explore. The Villa itself provides peace and tranquility in amongst wonderful views of the sea and rolling hills.
The property itself is 180msq on a plot size of 850msq.

Finally a self catering property that actually lives up to its pictures and description. A lovely booking process with Angela and clear concise instructions on how to locate the villa. The property was beautifully decorated, lovely bed linen, extremely comfortable mattresses ( a rare find in a rental)! Everything we could wish for was provided. Angela would occasionally be seen pottering around the property, you only knew because pool towels would be laid out or different pool toys would be put out for the two girls (9 and 12). The girls absolutely loved the pool area, they couldn't quite believe they had such a fabulous space all to themselves, neither could we! Angela is full of local information so use her knowledge to your advantage. If you prefer a quieter more Spanish evening head away from the main resort of Platja D'Aro, we loved Palafrugell where we found the most amazing tapas bar by the church. Would we recommend? Absolutely, would we return? Definitely. Thank you Angela for everything. Chris, Angela, Katie and Ella
Beautiful property, well maintained and welcoming
My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon a couple of months ago and absolutely loved it!
Firstly the owner Angela, a fabulous host who made us feel incredibly welcome, looked after but never intruded upon.
Nothing was too much trouble and virtually everything you could need on holiday was provided, even down to inflatables for the pool, a basket of clean towels and too many other things to list.
The listing was accurate, if anything the property is better even than described from the well equipped kitchen to the modern clean bathrooms and three good sized well furnished bedrooms. It will definitely accommodate 6 comfortably.(The WiFi Internet is fast with a strong signal too!) the only note of caution would be that there is a decent set of stairs to get down to the villa from the road, it's no problem under normal circumstances but definitely not suitable for anyone who struggles with stairs or has mobility issues.
The pool is great, big enough to swim in properly and there's a fabulous terrace too with great views down to the sea. Most evenings we were happy to simply sit out with a chilled bottle or two of the local cava (beautiful taste and so cheap!). and admire the view (if you do like to sit out, make sure you get good mozzie repellent and apply it well as there are a few knocking around at dusk.)
If you enjoy a walk it's a comfortable twenty minute walk downhill to the resort of Platja D'aro which has a lovely spacious and un-crowded beach with numerous nice bars and restaurants (particularly 'Friends' restaurant recommended by Angela). The walk back is uphill and to be fair it's quite a challenge especially if it's hot, but taxis are plentiful and it doesn't cost much to get back to the villa.
Another highlight was a visit to Girona about 45 minutes away in our hire car, it's a lovely town with quite a lot of historic buildings to see and some nice places to eat around the main square, well worth the visit.
Overall we greatly enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a nice relaxing holiday in a beautiful villa with fabulous views .
A magical week
From the moment we arrived we felt so relaxed, it was the first family holiday we had had for many years so our expectations were high. Angela and her beautiful home excelled all of our expectations! The villa was spotlessly clean, it was equipped with everything you might need, even down to plasters (our 8 year old grazed her knee). The view from the terrace is priceless. The villa sits on the edge of a pine forest and it is so peaceful. Watching the sun rise over the sea is something not to be missed either. Being so close to shops, restaurants and cafes was great, and our teenagers loved it, but not being in all the thick of it was what made it perfect for us. Angela knew so much about the area and was able to point us in the right direction. She was generous with her time and attention, she is right there if you need anything, but you don't have the feeling that she is even there. I would certainly recommend this villa and we will certainly be back. Thank you Angela for a beautiful week and all the care and attention you gave to us. With love from us all- and a special kiss from Lydie.
Beautiful villa, the nicest host & stunning views!
This is a 5 star review! At least! A truly wonderful villa with plenty of space and grounds. The garden is absolutely beautiful with charming details. The pool is clean and fresh and has a perfect size. Plenty of pool toys for playful children and grown ups! The house is very clean and tidy and has everything you can possibly need. The 3 bedrooms are tastefully decorated and very light and spacious. One of them has a stunning seaview, and you can see the breathtaking sunrise from the bed! We were warmly welcomed by the owner Angela, who showed us around the house and treated us with some very special cupcakes with our names on them together with fresh beverages in the refrigerator. She is SO nice and attentive and always available if needed. It’s a great plus to the stay that she is around! One night, all electricity went out and she came by to make sure that we were safe and okay! We had a lovely and very relaxing time, which was spent by the pool or the sea, in Platjo D’Aro or the villages nearby with plenty of bars and restaurants. We will definitely come back and highly recommend Angela’s beautiful villa! With all our hearts: Thank you!
