About the property

Villa in Tamariu, Costa Brava, Spain - Dead End Street At 140 Meters Altitude

Comfortable and bright semi-detached villa in an enchanting setting. Nice south/south-east terrace. Four house levels, pool(8 x 3.5m), barbecue, WI-FI internet access, TV and DVD player. Tamariu is a charming small fishing port without high rise apartments nor complexes with a small sandy "croisant" bay and promenade containing excellent Spanish bars and restaurants. Palafrugell with its daily market and supermarkets is a 6 km from the villa. Gerona (and its airport) lies at 1 hour drive (Barcelona - French border autopista), Barcelona at 125 km. The region offers a large range of activities all year round: sports, culture, history, gastronomy, shopping and relaxation. The climate is very nice all year round. The excellent tennis club with 19 courts is at 3 km. There are 3-4 golf courses within a 30 mins drive, and 7-8 golf courses all together within one hour drive.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is our 3rd visit to this area over the past 3 years and we love it! Your villa is in a delightful location, quiet, lovely pool and a spectacular view. Unfortunately we have had a few cloudy days so were relieved to have WI-FI, DVD player, private pool, very functional kitchen and a comfy lounge to sit in. We have had a wonderful holiday and your villa has suited us (2 adults and 3 children)beautifully.

We have had some lovely meals out in the evenings at Tamariu, Llafranc, Begur (old town) and Calella. Regarding beaches other than Tamariu, Llafranc and Aiguablava, our children loved the space and waves at La fosca and Pals.

A very enjoyable 2 weeks

Thank you

Best regards

Kate, Bill, Tom, Sam and Ella.


We really enjoyed our stay here. It is truly a beautiful place. We enjoyed the beach at Llafranc + we took the snorkelling trip with Triton Diving which was expensive but worth it (70€ for 2 adults + 2 children). We enjoyed the boat trip + it was about 1.5 hrs in duration.

Thank you so much for a wonderful stay.

Notes on accommodation: There are lots of stairs in and outside the house, so it depends on children's abilities and their curiosity whether it is safe for them. The pool is not surrounded by fences, but there are iron gates preventing small children's access to the pool area. For people with difficulties in walking up and down stairs, the villa is not ideal. Outside: In the entrance there is a gracious old olive tree. Stairs go down from the street to the main entrance and terrace with dining-table and chairs. Stunning views to the sea. Barbecue.

Light cleaning at the villa on Saturdays (as the final thorough cleaning, too). Extra change of linen and cleaning at extra cost. Changeover day is Saturday.

Fantastic location and views

  • 5 of 5

Loved the location a mile from Tamariu up a steep hill. All as per description and photos. Views from all 3 levels are stunning. Villa is clean and well equipped, including beach towels and chairs/parasol and plenty of kitchen utensils. Gardens immaculate and pool clean and heated. Great beaches at Tamariu and Aguia Blava

Only one issue is that downstairs bathrooms have signs of damp and shower curtains are mouldy and in need of replacement (with a screen).

Enjoyed our stay and would definitely come back

Beautiful clean practical

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful place in the hills overlooking the ocean. Walk possible to tamarriu about 1km but steep so better car.

The house is full of light the swimming pool really great.

Lacking only a table or two on the terraces, and it would be ideal if the old way direct from the garden down to the coast would be cleaned and possible .

We certainly recommend this house

Buen fin de semana

  • 4 of 5

La verdad es que me ha parecido muy bien la casa y hemos estado muy a gusto el fin de semana. Muy buen servicio y muy buen equipada, además de buena ubicación. De hecho nos ha gustado hasta el punto de querer repetir en un futuro.

Como punto quizá más flojo he encontrado la limpieza, que creemos que deberia ser más a fondo, sobretodo algunos aspectos de mantenimiento general como ventanas, armarios o jardín, y cocina. Pero en general hemos quedado muy contentos.

Nosotros hemos ido con perros y lo que sí quería que tuvieseis presente de cara a otros inquilinos con perros es que la casa se comunica con la de al lado por varios sitios y los perros pueden pasar con facilidad de un lado a otro si no es arreglado o como mínimo avisado.

Great Location

Great villa, well equipped with everything needed. Best thing is definitely the view! You can hear the sea when there are any waves. Surrounded by trees it is a fantastic spot.
