I would highly recommend Gustavo's farmhouse for a relaxing holiday in the Costa Brava.
Gustavo was a great host who communicated really well before our stay, he picked us up from the nearby petrol station to take us to the farmhouse.
He also recommended some great place to eat and visit close by.
The farmhouse is absolutely wonderful.
It was super clean and beautifully renovated, and tastefully and comfortably furnished. We loved the attention to detail throughout the house, the beautiful doors, stone floors etc.
The bedrooms were kept cool during the night, by rotary fans, and the beds were really comfortable.
The kitchen was really well equipped and functional, and even had a range gas cooker, which we were really happy about.
The covered outside eating area was perfect for al fresco eating, which we did every night when we stayed at home to cook.
The pool area is lovely and the pool is kept clean, the covered dining area and lounge area near the pool are also lovely spaces to relax and enjoy a few drinks.
Cologne is a great base to explore the area from, there are lots of supermarkets close by, and a Municipal market in Palamos, where we bought fresh seafood.
There are some beautiful little coves (cala) close by, ( 5 minutes drive) I would highly recommend Cala Cap Roig, there's a lovely beach bar, which served the best Sangrias ever, and it's perfect for snorkelling. Cala Del Paller is also very lovely. Girona is definitely worth a visit, its about half hours drive inland.
We would definitely love to return to Gustavo's farmhouse for another holiday.
Beautiful property, fantastic location ....
Two families with range of children from 4-16 stayed at Gustavo's farmhouse and had a truly fantastic and memorable holiday. The house is beautiful, the grounds amazing, the pool lovely, the area has so many beaches/coves/towns/landmarks - a really brilliant place to holiday and will definitely come back here. The waterpark is only 10 mins away also and is one of the best that we have ever been to ... overall 6 out of 5!!!!
A wonderful, shabby chic farmhouse. Loads of space, well equipped and very comfortable.
Our two families had a great stay in the farmhouse. The weather was extremely hot whilst we were there and air conditioning would have been the icing on the cake. The road is close but we weren't bothered by the noise-think we made more!!
Gustavo was very friendly and helpful. Thank you x
Great location and amazing property!
This location was ideal and centrally located to everything we needed and wanted to visit - France, beaches, medieval towns, grocery stores and restaurants. The host was superb in providing recommendations, and very accommodating. The house was very clean. The property itself was beautiful and exactly what we were looking for in a villa in the countryside!
Thank’s so much for your comments, I am very happy that you liked the villa that much. You were also great, was very nice meeting you and your family. You will be always welcome.
We loved our stay at the farm house! The house itself was fantastic! Plenty of space, beautiful rooms with so much charm. The garden was large, with a fantastic pool and plenty of areas outside to eat and relax. The area was itself was great too. So many charming villages near by and the beach with plenty restaurants and shops. The owner was so nice and even left us a box of fresh vegetables from his garden. We would highly recommend a vacation here.
It was very nice meeting you and your family. Thank you for being so easy going and taking so good care of the house. A pleasure. You will be always welcome when I will go to Massachusets I will contact you for your fine cottages in Rockport.
Thank's again !!
Old farmhouse near historic Calonge
We had a great time in this old farmhouse with a fantastic pool. There was plenty of room for the four adults and four children. As the children are young we moved mattresses upstairs rather than using the downstairs bedroom.
It is a short walk into nearby Calonge for restaurants, bars and shops and a short drive to San Antoni de Calonge for the beach although the super pretty coves are a little further away. There is some noise from the neighbouring motorway but the surrounding farms make you feel like you're in the middle of nowhere.
We'd recommend installing a fan in each bedroom as it can get very warm in the evening and night.
Gustavo was very helpful. The pool was cleaned and the villa cleaned during the stay.
Thank' s for your stay, feedback and comments.
I am glad that you enjoyed your stay and the house, sorry about the fans issue, now new fans are allready installed on all the rooms.
Thank's again, I will be happy to welcome you again.
The farmhouse is located in a rural parage, surrounded by fields, pine and oak.
A five minute walk from town and 5 minutes drive from the beach of Torre Valentina.
The fishing town of Palamos is a 7 minute drive.
When you get home, if you wish, I can tell them all kinds of places, restaurants, shops and activities.
