Why Silver House chose Baix Emporda

A HOUSE FOR FOUR SEASONS

SPRING: By the middle of April the sea brings daily delights. One can watch migrating birds and whales from the terrace. The microclimate of this stretch of the Costa Brava means there is sun and good weather for long periods of the year. The solitary beaches provide wonderful walks and opportunities to contemplate nature. The house’s gardens are full of flowers. Roses and all manner of plants and herbs. You can relax on the many terraces and in the swimming pool. Splendidly pure air. Restaurants, sport, visits to local fishing ports. Trips to medieval villages and towns that abound. Festivals and fiestas.

SUMMER: Swim in the sea night and day. Empty coves. Beach restaurants. Hire a boat. Visit the most important beaches on the Costa Brava. Chill out by the house pool. Lunch and dine on the rock patio. Music under the stars. Courses in underwater diving. Fiestas in nearby towns. Fine wine and food.

AUTUMN: A pleasant, almost spring-like temperature continues throughout the three months of autumn. In September and October sailing and swimming in the sea remain enjoyable options. It is extremely quiet and ideal for those who like solitary walks or prefer golf. Fascinating routes for driving through Low and High Ampurdan: local fresh fish, regional cuisine and renowned habanera festivals. The house becomes an idea space to relax and read, for artistic creation and conversation. Occasional Mediterranean storms provide a truly dramatic spectacle from the house’s various vantage points.

WINTER: The house is equipped to ensure a comfortable winter. You feel as if you are aboard a luxury liner. Splendid sea views. Fires in the hearth. Drinks in Llafranc. Visits to medieval towns and villages scattered fifteen kilometres from the house: potters, antiquarians, fresh fish markets. Ideal as a working space for professionals. Near the Dalí museum in Figueres and the Jewish quarter in Girona.

Stunning property, lacked some important attention to detail

  • 4 of 5

First, the good news:

1. Silver House is beautiful! The views from virtually every room are breath-taking! It was a highlight of our trip to sit outside at different points of the day and see the sunrise or set, and even one night watch a storm making its way over the sea. The house was also very dramatically decorated in silver (of course!) and white which added to its 'luxury vacation' feeling.

2. Alejandro, who managed the property while we were there, was very responsive. There were a few issues that came up and he was helpful in resolving them.

The not-so-good-news:

1. The house is pretty dangerous for children. There are sheer drops of the cliffs and seating areas outside. Everything is white and glass, and there are lots of sharp edges and hard stairs. We didn't pick up on this enough from the photos I guess. When we arrived with two 7 year old children, we realized we would be nervous all week that they didn't break something or hurt themselves.

2. There wasn't any sort of welcome book with notes about the house or town. We felt a little bit dropped in the middle of nowhere without a guide. I would have expected instructions on how to use appliances, where to find certain items, how to get to local beaches, recommended restaurants, etc. One night the power went off and we searched for 30 minutes for the fuse box before calling Alejandro to come over. Also there is a complicated shade system (so many windows!) with a few remote controls in each room that were not labeled or explained.

3.There was hardly a garbage bag or roll of toilet paper in the house and not enough linens for every guest. So, immediately upon getting there we had to head out. It would have been nice to have a few basics provided so that we could have settled in a little before going out.

So, overall it is a great house in a fantastic location and we enjoyed our stay. However, it is not inexpensive and we were expecting a little bit more from the rental than we received.

Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

When we saw the house online we immediately wanted to book it. The house was impeccable when we arrived. We felt very spoiled by the breathtaking views, every hour, every day, from everywhere. It felt like living in a boat. It has all the facilities one can expect from a luxury villa - all furniture and finishings of outstanding quality. Owners sent us a list of places restaurants which we loved and also gave us contacts for boat renting. Totally recommend it.

Très belle maison dans un cadre splendide

  • 4 of 5

Très belle maison à la décoration magnifique. Très belle piscine avec vue imprenable sur la mer.

Maison idéale pour des couples ou familles avec enfants adolescents ou adultes.

Vue exceptionnelle sur la baie ; le village de Tamariu est tout à fait typique et authentique. Belles balades à faire à pied dans les environs.

A notre point de vue, il manquait un barbecue électrique qui nous semble être indispensable en vacances, surtout à cet endroit où le temps au mois d'août est très beau. Car c'est aussi tout à fait dommage de devoir cuisiner à l'intérieur.

Dommage aussi que sur 8 poêles une seule soit en bon état.

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place! It is an elegant and comfortable home. We could spend a few quiet days with the family. It has everything you can expect.

Furthermore, it is next to a lovely village where you can do everything: relax, go boating, delicious restaurants... We really enjoyed. Thank You!
