About the property

Villa in Platja d'Aro, Costa Brava, Spain - Fabulous Boutique Style Accommodation, Beaches And Shops Minutes Away

Agua de Sal has been owned by the same family since it was built and as a result has a special charm and character of its own. Being one of the first villas built in the village it has a unique and advantageous position being just minutes walk from the beach and shops but far enough away not to be bothered by noise or traffic. Once you arrive hear you will rarely need to use your car. Bikes are supplied by the owners. Key features of the property include a completely private garden with terraces and sitting areas. The large main lounge dining room open out onto a large outside sitting/dining area and garden. The kitchen has been completely refurbished this year and boasts all modern conveniences. Also on the ground floor is a study/library with wifi and the spacious entrance hall. The first floor boasts five double bedrooms one with children’s bunks and two luxury bathrooms. every room has a large outside balcony/terrace area. The top floor has a penthouse suite with huge terrace.

About Eva ferran-heuschkel

My name is Eva. I am an interior designer, world traveller and mother of two beautiful daughters. I love to cook, entertain and dance.

Villa Agua de Sal is my home, my business and my creation.

Eva ferran-heuschkel purchased this villa in 1949

Why Eva ferran-heuschkel chose Playa de Aro

This beautiful house was built by my grandfather. In the early years it was a small hotel run by my grandparents called the Hotel Cactus. Around five years ago after many years of neglect I decided to refurbish the house and bring it back to life.

Villa Agua de Sal was born.

Come and see for yourself why so many people love this property.

This house is everything you could possibly wish for. Close to the beach but with a superb garden which you probably wont want to leave. The house itself is superbly appointed with all modern facilities and masses of room . The owners really have thought of everything to make your stay first class, even bikes to get around and wi fi should you feel the need to get in touch with the outside world! Everything was catered to make our stay so relaxing, in a fantastic setting. We will definitely re-book

What an amazing place to stay. This stunning villa really was a fabulous place to spend a week. Spacious, airy and beautifully decorated . Everything about it was first class. The villa situated in a lovely chilled setting was a great place for us to unwind. The beach is very close to the villa and local amenities with lovely bars and restaurants close by. Friendly people , I will definitely return to what can only be described as a beautiful villa in a beautifully relaxed part of the world .
