About alan and keely
We are Alan and Keely Carter - we currently live in the South West of England and have owned the Villa for the past 12 years. Because we are a family with 2 children we understand how important it is for the property to be child friendly. We have enjoyed our family holidays here since our children were small and although our son is 19 years old, and daughter 21 years, we are so pleased that they still love to come here to enjoy family time with us each year. We are always happy to answer any questions that you may have about the villa and we pride ourselves on our personal touch. Alan has had many telephone conversations with our holiday families that regularly rent and those who are new. We currently live in Devon, the South West of England and we are both self employed in the tourist industry and with that knowledge know how important it is for our renters to be happy.
alan and keely purchased this Villa in 2005
Why alan and keely chose Province of Girona
My husband Alan and myself, Keely have enjoyed our holidays immensely here over the years - since first setting eyes on the villa and surrounding area we have never tired of the wildlife, peace and tranquility (all we can hear outside are the birds singing) and the good distance to the beaches in the area. We often take taxi rides to the main resort of Platja D'Aro (about 10 mins drive) with it's long sandy beach, bars restaurants, fantastic nightlife, bowling, aqua parc and much more. La Fosca Beach (about 7 minutes drive). The nearest supermarkets are 5 minutes drive and the nearest village of Calonge a few minutes. There are so many places to explore and visit and the Restaurants in Palamos, Platja D'aro are very good. Our friendly Meet & Greet team, Herman & Natasha are on hand to welcome you to our property and our fluent in French, German, Spanish, English, Dutch. If you have any problems you can be assured that they are available to contact throughout your stay.
What makes this Villa unique
The unique features that made us fall in love with our property are the wonderful pool which is ideal for children having steps going down into the shallow end, also the amazing outdoor dining and relaxing area, having the outdoor kitchen is very convenient for BBQ alfresco eating and are close enough to the pool to take a dip when you need to cool off. The separate bedrooms in different areas of the house make it ideal to suit everyone. The upstairs bedroom with its outdoor balcony overlooking the pool, the downstairs bedroom with bathroom opposite (suitable for disabled or elderly as they do not have to negotiate stairs) and the 3rd bedroom on the upper level on the other side of the house with en suite bathroom suitable for all members of the family. We think you will find that, being on flat ground, the villa is very easy for elderly or small children to walk and play and very disabled friendly. There are different areas in the house to relax in and is very cool in the summertime with fans being available in all rooms. There is a main lounge area with tv and book case and then a follow on smaller lounge area (ideal for some quiet time to read a book or relax. The main kitchen is also off the lounge area and is fully equipped. There is a dishwasher in the kitchen and a washing machine tucked away in the garage area so as not to disturb the peace and quiet.

Great holiday, the house was perfect.
Definitely coming back!
Thanks so much we would love to have you back That means this year we’ve had complete five-star reviews from everybody that means her efforts have been paid back thanks very much
We loved it here. The villa was very spacious and had everything we needed. The pool was fantastic and on the days we wanted to chill, it was so peaceful and relaxing.
The local areas Palamós and Platja d’aro were our favourites for restaurants/bars and all the beaches we visited were stunning. We also squeezed in a day trip to to Barcelona!
We hired a car (would recommend) as we have kids and like to explore. If you prefer not to drive, there’s a local taxi driver who Alan kindly recommended, who’s lovely and friendly.
Alan also answered all our questions and provided us with some great advice for our visit! Herman who manages the villa was great. We had some car issues and he went over and above to help us! Would definitely recommend.
Thank you so much for that fantastic review Herman told me you were lovely family and it was a pleasure to have you in my villa we would love to have you back again kind regards and and Keely
What a fantastic break
We didn’t expect the weather but it was amazing 25° every day had a very lazy holiday just relax by the pool Fantastic
Thank you so much for your five star review we really pleased You liked it We are going now Friday and we are going to laze By the pool as well
Spacious villa with great pool & ideal location
This turned out to be an ideal "base camp" from which to explore the
Costa Brava. With its spacious rooms and very creative and functional
outside spaces, it was the perfect place just to relax while plotting
the rest of the day. The oversized pool was an ideal place to spend
the time when the temperatures started to soar. We were less than 15
minutes from Palamos and Platja d'Aro -- great places to have dinner
or a drink. Would highly recommend spending some time at the
underdeveloped Platja del Castell where you can rent kayaks for a
great trip along the coast. We flew into Girona and spent most of our
last full day there. It is a great city. If you find yourself there,
go to the Museum of Cinema. All in all, a great vacation at a great
Thanks so much for a perfect review It’s also nice to hear about the surrounding area and what people did not just talk about the house it really warms us to hear that people had such a great time and that’s what holidays are all about Very kind regards Alan and Keely
Good villa needs updating
Had a good time but Villa is a bit tired cooker and BBQ need updating downstairs toilet not fixed to floor so moves when sat on, next to no water pressure in the villa.
Thank you for your comments, it is always good to get feedback from our renters so that we can act on any problems that may arise in our villa. In response to your review we reply as follows:
The problem with the toilet has now been fixed. The villa is maintained at a high level throughout the season by our Team in Spain, details of which can be accessed at the villa so that any maintenance problems are acted upon at the time, unfortunately, this was only noticed by ourselves at the end of the season and then action was taken which is why we encourage the renters to relay any problems before the end of their stay.
At the beginning of each rental season we always ensure that the BBQ is in good working condition, which was the case, but during the season had been misused but we would like to assure our renters that a brand new WEBER BBQ has now been installed ready for 2018 renters.
The water pressure is not normally a problem at the villa, it is a private urbanisation but we have since found out that there was a problem outside the villa grounds and the water company have since fixed this.
ALSO NEW FOR 2018 RENTERS !!!
A brand new Dishwasher and a brand new cooker hob all installed and in working order.
We hope this helps and apologies for the problems that you experienced.

The Villa is set in a very quiet area at the foothills of the Gavarres, at Vizcondado de Cabanyes. Close to the medieval town of Calonge and within easy reach of Sant Antoni, Palamos and Playa D' Aro. The Villa's location offers the contrast of a complete away from it all relaxing by the pool style holiday, alternatively a few minutes drive to the many varied and beautiful beaches, or travelling further afield to enjoy the wonderful countryside. Just 35 minutes from Girona and 90 minutes from Barcelona, with many other historical and cultural towns all within a 1 hour drive.
Within easy reach there are many good shops, restaurants and daily markets to enjoy.
