Overview

About the property

700 m from beach, garden terrace, pool, 3 bedrooms, quite residential area

The apartment is located in a quiet residential area, in the heart of Tossa de Mar historic town centre. Only three minutes’ walk from the supermarket and ten minutes’ walk from the beach.

It’s a new 90m2 building, which will make your staying completely satisfactory, not to mention the 40m2 garden terrace in which you can enjoy and relax… with direct access to the living room and kitchen. All the rooms face this beautiful and sunny terrace. The guest will experiment a unique sensation inside each one of the rooms, due to the good taste and dedication they’ve been decorated with. Its facilities include parking place and swimming-pool as well.

Tossa de Mar: Tossa de Mar is a beautiful town with cobbled streets, a magnificent ancient castle and a beautiful mountainous hinterland with lush green valleys, gorges and natural springs, and not to forget its maritime cuisine.

Medieval Tossa dates back to the year 966 and in 1187 the castle was built on the headland to defend the town against sea borne invaders. In 1931, the Vila Vella of Tossa was declared a National Historical-Artistic Monument. The city walls in the Cape of Tossa are currently the only example of a fortified mediaeval town that still remains on the Catalan coast. The most interesting building within the walled enclosure is the Municipal Museum, with many important works of modern art, e.g., Marc Chagall, George Kars, André Masson and Oscar Zügel, and archaeological finds.

The natural beauty of this area has attracted many leading artists to Tossa which explains why the town became home Spain's first Museum of Modern Art in 1935.

Barcelona: The fascinating city of Barcelona, 90 kilometres south, an unforgettable city of art, culture and beauty.

Gaudi’s works, Las Ramblas (walk along the Ramblas to enjoy street musicians and living statues), museums, concerts, the fine Catalan cuisine (Barcelona, with its nine Michelin stars and prestigious Gourmande award, is undoubtedly the Mediterranean’s culinary capital) and FC Barcelona’s football team homeland are well worth a vist.

second time around

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd time at this property. The apartment was just as fab as before. Absolutely everything you need is there including lovely toiletries. There were 6 of us including 2 children. They were very well catered for. A lovely bedroom with a nightlight. Lots of toys & games. The apartment is very spacious & has good air conditioning.Lots of lovely towels & spare sheets etc. The swimming pool was a big hit & although shared more often than not you had it to yourselves. The owners Ana & Mark answered all my questions & were so lovely & friendly. We would highly recommend this property. You feel at home as soon as you enter. Just a 10 minute walk into town & the beach & 5 minutes to the Supermarket. When booking a family holiday in Tossa, we would always book this property.

Great family apartment for exploring all that Tossa de Mar has to offer

  • 5 of 5

The apartment had everything we needed for our family holiday. We spent 5 nights at the apartment with our 1 and 2 year old daughters. They loved the toys, playing outside on the private patio and their rooms. We could walk to the beach, many restaurants and markets all within 15 minutes. We left our car in the garage the whole time. Hosts made check in and check out easy.

Wonderful, spacious apartment with gorgeous pool in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Tossa De Mar is a beautiful town and this is the perfect apartment to enjoy it from. We arrived by coach and it was a 5 minute walk from the coach station, in a great location just back from the centre of the town and beach front. The block is relatively newly built and part of a group of similar blocks all with pools. The apartment was large and simply decorated with everything you could need, and spotlessly clean throughout. There is a large living/dining area with couch and large table and chairs with sliding doors to the wonderful terrace. The kitchen is long and bright with a small breakfast table at the end with doors out to the terrace also. The terrace is a gem - it has a large table and chairs and two sunbeds and large umbrella, from there there is also a lockable door to the garden and communal pool - a wonderful, bright oval of blue surrounded by grass - clean and perfectly tended - and during our stay there were only a handful of Spanish residents/holiday makers who used it. Everyone was very respectful and courteous, and both our children had the pool to themselves for vast parts of the day. The sun is on the pool/garden from early morning until around 4.30/5pm each day so plenty of time to get a tan! The two smaller bedrooms were bright and simply furnished with windows out to the terrace, perfect for our two. They shared the bathroom opposite. The master bedroom is large and bright, with a very generous en-suite and wardrobes in all bedrooms. Both bathrooms had their own hairdryer, very handy as it saves you having to bring your own. The apartment has absolutely everything you could want - with the addition of a few extra items in a lockable cupboard on the terrace, umbrella for the beach, broom, sewing kit, medical box etc. Marc the owner was lovely and very amenable to our changes in arrival time - and allowed us a late check out as no one else was coming in that day. Tossa is a beautiful town, but it is rare to find such a large, clean and nicely furnished 3-bed with such a gorgeous pool area, so close to the main town. There are restaurants, supermarkets, cafe's and shops all within 3/5mins walk. And the Old Town is maybe 10 minute leisurely stroll. Close enough to walk to but not so close you get the noise and disturbance. The area is quite and residential. We will absolutely be booking to stay again, Marc and Ana have a thoroughly lovely apartment in the perfect location, with a gorgeous pool - what more could you want!

An apartment with everything we needed, And everything we wanted from a holiday...

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment, in an Ideal location! (2 mins walk from a supermarket, 15 mins from walk restaurants/beach/town) communication with owners were brilliant, and answered every question and query with speed.

The apartment is full of bits and bobs to aid your stay, the photos don't do it justice.

The pool is larger than the photo suggests, and normally quiet, and easily accessible and viewable from the rear of the apartment.

If you have kids they'll love the toys, buckets and spades available, my two daughters (4 & 8) had plenty of fun!

Tossa de mar has the character of an old medieval town, but some modern touches to make it fun for the family. Would highly recommend this apartment to anyone.

Excellent, modern well equipped apartment with lovely shared pool and short walk to Tossa beaches

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Marc's apartment! We were welcomed with a beautiful fruit basket and given tips on the local supermarket & best route to the beach. We were also able to drop our bags at the flat early which was greatly appreciated. The apartment is modern and tastefully furnished and immaculately clean - even nicer than the photographs suggest! Ample towels and toiletries had been thoughtfully provided and there is a range of toys for younger children. Our own kids loved the access to the pool which was just metres away and which a lot of the time we had to ourselves. Also useful for very small children as it is separated from the apartment by a lockable door so very secure. The air conditioning was also great in every room for which we were very grateful on some of the hotter days! The wifi also worked really well. The apartment has its own underground car park space which is very useful in Tossa as free spaces are hard to come by.The location was great: it is based in a calm and quiet area of the town and the local Dia supermarket is just 2 minutes walk away and the beach and beautiful old town of Tossa are both about a 10 minute walk. Useful not to have to drive to the beach as beachside parking is limited and expensive! The seafront of Tossa is really charming with a wide range of restaurants and the views from the hilltop in the Vila Vella, particularly at night, are spectacular. We also enjoyed wandering through the streets of the old town which is very picturesque with lots of character. The beaches were great, if slightly stony, and rock shoes are a worthwhile purchase. We also found it great for snorkelling. Tossa is a great base to explore other towns and resorts in the region. Marc was a really delightful host and very helpful and responsive. We would warmly recommend both Tossa and the apartment!

Great apartment with communal pool, lovely terrace, 10 mins walk from town and the beach

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week here with our 5yr old daughter and my 75yr old mum. Modern, very clean, secure ground floor apartment so no stairs to deal with. Lovely terrace with big dining table and sun loungers which opens out onto the well maintained pool area. All mod cons, Wifi/DW/WM/TV/DVD/Ironing board with AC in lounge and fans in rooms as well as some books and kids toys. Plenty of kitchen equipment for self catering inc a coffee machine. Loads of storage space, comfy beds, lots of bedding, both house and beach towels provided along with shampoo and shower gel and a nice touch of a welcome pack of food as our flight got in late. Ana and her brother Marc couldn't be more welcoming and helpful. Very highly recommended.
