Overview

About the property

Spacious villa with 4 bedrooms, private pool, stunning panoramic views and WiFi

Situated on a hillside between the Catalan medieval town of Pals and the beach, our villa has been a popular rental property with very happy clients leaving great feedback. It has four terraces from where you can enjoy the breathtaking panoramic views from sunrise to sunset. There is a large open-plan living-dining area with modern kitchen, dining for 8, free WiFi and a 50 inch TV with Netflix. There are 4 bedrooms, two with direct access to the pool terrace and two modern bathrooms.

The villa is a short drive (5 mins each way) to Pals village and the beautiful Pals beach. The nearest supermarket is a 2 minute drive and is open 7 days a week. There are 3 big golf courses and a fantastic pitch n putt all within 10 mins drive. There are plenty of local bars and restaurants serving fresh seafood and Catalan cuisine. The up-market beach resorts of Lla Franc and Calella with their beautiful sheltered coves and whitewashed houses are a short drive away. You can enjoy the many walking trails at the back of the villa which lead you to Pals, Begur, Palafrugell and beyond.

About Eugenia Badrena

I was born in Barcelona and have many happy childhood memories of holidays here in the Costa Brava. I moved to Scotland in 2001 where I now live with my husband and two children, but we always came back to this stretch of coastline to enjoy the beautiful beaches, unspoilt medieval towns and wonderful natural surroundings.

This year we bought the villa, after falling in love with the location and beautiful views. We aim to create a relaxing and peaceful holiday home for all our guests as well as being a place where we can come to relax with family and friends!

Eugenia Badrena purchased this villa in 2016

Why Eugenia Badrena chose Baix Emporda

The villa is in a lovely location on the edge of the beautiful forests of Begur and there are uninterrupted views over the hills. You can relax here straight away and in the evenings enjoy the sun set over a glass of wine by the pool.

What makes this villa unique

The villa is very spacious and is perfect for two families. There are four terraces, so it is easy to find a quiet moment, but the living-dining area is large enough for everyone to enjoy time together. The outdoor areas are gently lit in the evening, creating a nice atmosphere.

This year we introduced a Netflix subscription, so you can watch unlimited movies - great to keep the kids entertained while you prepare the barbecue or enjoy a chilled glass of Cava!

Great views of the hills and lovely outside areas

  • 4 of 5

A great villa for a family holiday. Lots of space, in easy reach of lots of beaches, close to medieval towns that are full of character and with good restaurants. The pool area gets the sun all day if you don't want to venture out.

Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! This property is fantastic. Beautifully presented and maintained to an exceptional standard. The views around the property are breathtaking, adding to its charm and tranquility, and Pals is fantastic.

The owners of the property were also fantastic and ensured our holiday was amazing from start to finish by providing detailed information of the local area and things to do during our stay.

The villa was well-equipped and thewwelcome package was very much appreciated.

The pool is amazing, great size and the pool area is really well-presented, with fantastic access from both downstairs bedrooms and externally.

It was truly brilliant and we can't wait to go back! Thank you so much for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful home.

Good pals visited a lovely villa at Pals

  • 5 of 5

Six of us had a great stay at the villa. It was well appointed with all the kit that we needed. The view over the hill and woods and far far away was great. The pool at the end of March was swimmable temperature wise;it was fine once you had got in. The surrounding area is beautiful. Pals itself is a little gem and an hours drive north will take you to Dali's house and the beautiful coastline around Cadaques. All together a lovely week

Lovely spacious villa with a great pool area

  • 5 of 5

We had a great holiday staying here, lovely villa which was well equipped & great pool. The views are beautiful from the villa and it is a very peaceful area. Everything seem to be provided that was needed even down to beach towels and a full netflix package which was great for the children. The property was very clean on arrival with a welcome pack. It is a modern spacious villa and we were all very happy staying here. Liz who was the contact if any problems was very helpful, we had a problem with one of the showers but it was rectified very quickly. Eugenia who took over the villa after we had made our booking was always very helpful and responded to any emails, enquiries etc very quickly and i know from Eugenia that the access to the pool through one of the bedrooms is to be changed in the future which will be much better. However this did not really take away from the fact that we had a fabulous holiday, the area is beautiful with fantastic beaches and lots of beautiful towns all very close to the villa. We would not hesitate in recommending this villa and would definitely stay again ourselves. This was our 3rd time to this are in Spain and the best villa we have stayed in so far.

Beautiful villa in a lovely place

  • 5 of 5

The villa is well-equipped, comfortable and in a great location. The top terrace is covered so you can be outside in any weather, and the view is beautiful. Despite being in a big urbanisation, it is remarkably private, overlooking countryside. At the time of our visit, access to the pool was through the lower bedrooms, which could be inconvenient, but this will be rectified when the outside access is restored.

The property was clean and the bathrooms are modern.The barbecue was great, and it was really good to have beach towels provided. We found the kitchen well-equipped, with plenty of everything for 6.

Liz was really helpful and efficient and it was reassuring to know that she was around if we had any problems.We had a power cut on the morning we were leaving and she was really quick to respond. Eugenia took over the villa after we made the booking and she has been really helpful and responsive to any queries.

We had some lovely trips out - walking to the beach (half hour through the forest) and to Pals town (about the same distance, again mainly through the trees), and driving further down the coast to Begur and Palafrugell. Parking can be tricky in August though. Tossa de Mar is lovely for a daytrip.It isn't the best area for vegetarians, but we did find some options in most restaurants.

We had a lovely holiday and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property.

Fantastic villa in an idillyic place

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful, modern property with its beautiful décor and ample sized swimming pool for 3 exuberant children! We were well looked after during the week and nothing was a problem for Liz who was responsible for clients and their comfort. Minor issues were dealt with quickly and effectively. We would love to come back to this beautiful villa - we're talking about next year already!
