Villa Florisa - Awesome
Villa Florisa is such a stunning property with excellent views of the Mediterranean from the amazing balcony, that also overlooks the pool. It is modern and stylish and had lots of space and enough bedrooms and bathrooms for the eight of us. The kitchen was modern and great for cooking meals. The owner was extremely easy to deal with, and gave us lots of information and was in regular contact. The property manager, Sam was full of good information, tips and tricks for things to see and do on the Costa Brava. It was a 10 minute walk to the beach with a couple of supermarkets close by and some great bars and restaurants along the beachfront. A fantastic experience and highly recommended.
What can I say, the photos do not do this property justice. It is an incredible villa with outstanding customer service from the owner and everyone that works for him.
The villa is situated up a very steep hill just a 10 minute walk from Sant Antoni beach and 5 minute walk to the local Carrefour which is really convenient. If you are able bodied the hill is a good piece of holiday exercise but if not, the local taxi’s are situated in a taxi rank in Sant Antoni and Carrefour call them for you if you need one from there.
As a group we had none flyers so took the train from Paris to Girona and then the bus to Saint Antoni. The owner provided all the information for us to get there which was invaluable.
It is without a doubt that we definitely go back.

Fantastic views and lovely villa
The villa is conveniently located about 10 minutes walk to the beach and supermarkets and has some absolutely beautiful views across to Palamos harbour. The villa is well equipped and has ample bedrooms to easily sleep 10. The 3 bedrooms in the tower are the most spacious with good views. There is a downstairs storage area with bedroom and bathroom but its not yet habitable, but good to use via the garage when by the pool, to avoid the steps. The villa has air conditioning should you require it and the cost is deducted from the damage deposit, but is quite reasonable. The pool was great, large and heated so always a good temperature. It is quite deep with a ladder entry so better for those who are able to swim. It is at the front of the property, but raised up so you are not overlooked.
There isn't any real garden for playing games in, but there are numerous seating areas so you can enjoy the view. There are plenty of loungers but no other chairs around the pool should you not want to lie down. The outside furniture was functional but could be improved to bring it up to the standard of the rest of the villa.
The front portico offers fabulous views over to Palamos harbour and we enjoyed watching the cruise ships coming in and out. It gets the sun early in the day and then offers some much needed shade as the day goes on. There is also a seating area at the rear, covered by the sail, which is another pleasant spot. There is a good quality BBQ and ample gas. We stayed for 2 weeks and there was a change of towels and linen after a week, but no cleaning of the villa during that time.
Once you have worked out the shortest route to the beach, crossing the main road, then it is about 10 minutes walk to San Valentino. Downhill to the beach but steep uphill on the return. There is a nice flat 45 minute walk along the beach promenade to Palamos or a cliff walk the other way. The promenade has numerous restaurants and bars and the beach is sandy and clean with showers along the route. There is also a site which offers assistance for disabled visitors. You can hire boats, windsurfs etc... there is plenty to do.
The fish market at Palamos is well worth a visit, it opens usually about 5pm each day with fresh fish caught that day. The water park is 10 minutes down the road and whilst a bit pricey, it was not particularly crowded and very clean and you can take your own picnic.
Overall a nice villa, fantastic views and good location.
Beautiful Villa, ideal for large groups
We went to the Villa for a family holiday, so we had age ranges of young kids, 20s, 40s, 50s and 70s and we all agreed, that the Villa was superb. Magnificent views, lovely pool (which we all enjoyed, especially the younger ones) and ample room for all of us. The local supermarket was a 10 minute work away, as was the beach (once you find the shortcut). Overall, pretty faultless really.
Amazing villa, highly recommended!
Villa Florisa is truly an amazing villa with a lot of space and spectacular views. The description and pictures of the villa are very accurate. We spent a week at the villa, but could have easily stayed much longer. We all loved it. Everything we needed was provided and the grocery stores are close by (walking distance). There are also several nice restaurants down by the beach. The owner was extremely helpful with everything and replied to all our questions very promptly. We can't wait to go back and can highly recommend it for everyone!
Perfect holiday villa
My husband, myself and a group of friends went down to Spain on motorbikes and stayed at villa florisa for a week at the end of August, we were delighted with the villa, it was spacious, well kept and everything the holiday details said to would be and more. Our group comprised of 4 couples and 1 single person, the villa gave us plenty of space for 9 people and the ability for us all to have a separate bathroom. The views over Palamos were stunning and the outside area in the front of the villa made an excellent evening sitting area. We would not hesitate to recommend this villa, we had a great holiday.
The area is serviced by several airports (Girona airport 35km; Barcelona airport 110km; Perpignan airport 110km); there are numerous car rental companies at these airports. Airlines include the budget carriers Ryanair and Easyjet. There are good rail links (Girona station 30km) and road links (A7 E15 Barcelona-Girona motorway 35km).
Villa Florisa is located between the coast towns of Palamos and Playa d’Aro. It is well situated for exploring the surrounding cities, towns and Costa Brava countryside. Playa d’Aro with its numerous restaurants is 5km to the south, and the pretty towns of Palafrugell, Begur and Pals are 10-15km to the north; a little further is the ceramics/pottery center of La Bisbal.
Barcelona with its Gaudi architecture, and Dali’s Figueres, are within easy reach, and the French border is just 90km away by motorway, with access to the Languedoc-Roussillon wine region. Or take the scenic coast route via Portbou, with stunning views down to the Mediterranean.
