Absolutely wonderful on every way

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed a wonderful two week stay at Mertilo. We spent a lot of time either on the deck or in the pool just soaking up the amazing view, and yes it is as spectacular as the pictures suggest. During our stay we visited Barcelona, Girona, Figueras, to see the Salvador Dali museum, and Montserrat, as wellas the many lovely local beaches and coves.

The villa is clean, modern and very well equipped. The property manager was very helpful and quick to respond if we needed anything

Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed at this beautiful villa and yet again we had a fantastic holiday. The villa is modern and contemporary and very well equipped with everything you will need. The outside area is very spacious with a lovely infinity pool.

As it is in a hilltop location the views are stunning, overlooking Aiguablava Bay and the sea beyond. We spent many a night soaking up the view with a glass of bubbly. Overall an exceptional villa.

Simply stunning!

  • 5 of 5

We were staying in Aiguablava for our son's wedding and decided to extend our holiday by renting a villa, as we hadn't visited this part of Spain previously.

Villa Mirtilo seemed to fit the brief, being perfect in size for our needs, beautifully furnished and equipped and having the most sensational of views. We weren't disappointed when we arrived, after an interesting climb up the hillside. The attention to detail was immediately obvious and the villa was impeccably maintained. We have rented villas of a high standard all around the world for many years and can honestly say that this property ranks amongst the highest.

The view over Aiguablava is breathtaking, the infinity salt water pool perfect and the terrace furniture comfortable and relaxing. We shall return!

Stunning views of Aguiablava

  • 5 of 5

We, 4 adults, stayed in Mirtilo for a week in mid June with perfect weather. Once you have negotiated the steep road to the villa, the position is idyllic with spectacular views of the cove of Aguiablave below. The villa was immaculately clean, very well equipped and had a very comprehensive guide to local amenities and activities. The infinity pool was stunning and very well used by us during the week. The outside areas are spacious with comfortable seating of various different types and we found ourselves drawn back every afternoon to enjoy the ambiance.The supermarket at the top of the hill on the Begur road provides everything and even had English papers and fresh croissants if required. The property agent who met us on arrival was charming and helpful.

The Costa Brava is a wonderful holiday destination with plenty to do for all ages. I thoroughly recommend this villa.

Great house / great view / great location

  • 5 of 5

The villa is situated at the top of the hill over Aiguablava creek and offers incredible view over the sea from the infinity pool and from every room.

The house has been renovated with top quality materials and is very well taken care of.

The equipement is high level and you'll find in the house EVERYTHING you need for a perfect vacation (appart from a bluetooth adaptater for the home cinema system)

As some guests allready mentionned, it was a pleasure to deal with the owners.

There are many places to go in the surrounding (Pals, Begur, Tamariu beach or Callela de Palafrugell) where you'll have great time and good meals.

Highly recommended!!!

Stunning in everything!

  • 5 of 5

This house is a perfect choice to have an extaordinary vacation. This property is spotless clean and well kept. The stunning view is everywhere we look! The pool is a dream, and the setout of the terrace kept us outside even with a rainy day. Just go and experience by yourself. There is a lot of nice and interesting villages to discover all around, Begur, Medieval Girona and Besalu, We booked a holyday to enjoy and rest, but there is a lot more to do around if you want to.

Five stars for sure just waiting to go back!

We were looking for a holiday home near Barcelona, and this location is second to none.

Activity and Interests


You will be spoilt for choice surrounded by beautiful beaches and fishing villages along the coast with excellent services, with good restaurants and shops. The nearest beach is Aiguablava. The local beaches of Pals, Aiguafreda, Sa Tuna, Sa Riera, Platja Fonda, Tamariu, Llafranc, Calella de Palafrugell, to name a few, are just minutes away. There are some scenic coastal walks from beach to beach along the coast line "camins de ronda":


Use of car is essential to your stay. Nearest airport is Girona Airport: 50 min. Barcelona airport 1.5 hours, Perpignan airport 1 hour and 40 mins. If you are driving from Calais it will take you 11 hours.


Begur is the nearest village, 3.5 km.

Palafrugell (daily and weekly outdoor markets), 7 km.

La Bisbal (ceramics) 20 km.

Girona (beautiful provincial capital) 35 km.

Figueres (Dali Museum) 50 km.

Further Details:

Babysitting service can be provided. In both Begur and Palafrugell, there are banks, chemists & supermarkets. Begur is a delightful historic village with stylish shops and great restaurants. There are several diving centres & boat rentals in nearby beaches. There are public tennis courts in Begur and the hotel Aiguablava (just below the villa) allows non residents to use their court (11 euros for one hour) There is a riding school (Hipica Begur) in the forest just before you enter Begur where they organise excursions. The Dali Museum in Figueras, the Chateau where he lived with Gala in Pubol, and his house in Port Lligat at Cadaques are all well worth visiting. Inland you can visit La Bisbal where they make ceramics and pottery, and which has street markets. Beautiful villages like Peratallada with historic centres, like Pals village which also has ceramics and art galleries.
