Amazing home from home (but warmer and with a lovely pool!)
The house was lovely. No complaints at all. We all had a great time. Thanks Jane.
I'm so glad that you enjoyed your stay at La Gallega and thank you for taking the time to send a review.
Perfect for a family
Fantastic property, great location, and the pool is lovely (heating is an absolute boon for out of season!). There's lots of options if you have kids, with two double rooms, a twin room and a bunk room. The house is clean and really well appointed, and a great base for exploring the area. We spent a fantastic week there in May, and have already re-booked for October.
Yet another memorable holiday
Four of us have just spent a most enjoyable Autumn holiday in La Gallega. although we took this holiday in late October, the weather was exceptionally good with warm and sunny days.
The villa has a heated pool which even at this time of year allowed us to swim on most days and enjoy a barbecue at lunchtime.
This was not our first holiday here because La Gallega offers very comfortable accommodation in a lovely location. We all enjoy walking and its a perfect base from which to go on some spectacular hikes.
Whilst here we also managed some retail therapy in nearby Plaja D'Aro which has good clothes shops and tempting places to dine at.
We said goodbye to La Gallega with some sadness and returned to the cold UK, but we are all looking forward to returning in 2017
Thank you for your kind review.
La Gallega villa -- a perfect holiday retreat
La Gallega is situated in the beautiful countryside near Calonge, and it is only 10 minutes from a supermarket or a beach. The villa is always welcoming providing spacious and comfortable accommodation. It is surrounded by a lovely garden in which there is a heated pool and a dedicated barbecue area.
Although on this last holiday we were just two couples. On previous holidays here we have had children and our dog with us and all enjoyed themselves immensely - whether in the pool, on the beach or just walking in the countryside.
We always enjoy shopping in the market at Palamos, where the abundance of fresh fish and local produce is a delight. However we usually spend an evening in Plaja D'Aro checking out the boutiques and clothes shops there, followed by a glass of wine in one of the many pavement cafes. Eating out is easy and inexpensive with plenty of bars and cafes in nearby Calonge St Antoni, or maybe further afield in Llfranc, which is a sophisticated little harbour.
We are well travelled having had many holidays in many places in the world - Japan - West Indies - America - Egypt.........as well as most countries in Europe. But the holiday we have just spent in Calonge has to be one of the most enjoyable holidays we have ever had. We would like to thank the owners of La Gallega for making their villa so hospitable and providing us with a wonderful holiday location!
A wonderful holiday experience
With a stunning view across Calonge valley to the sea at Sant Antoni, La Gallega villa offers first class accommodation with that certain 'Je ne sais quoi', that you hope for in a holiday retreat, yet rarely find. The area reminds us of the best of southern France thirty years ago, but without the quaint living conditions. The villa is equipped to the highest standards and you can choose from a relaxing poolside day,or exploring the best of Spanish Cost Brava. There are hidden bays, like Llafranc and Calella with local restaurants overlooking perfect sandy beaches. These contrast with the bustle of Palamos a local fishing port and the medieval experience of fortified towns like Pals near Cap de Begur. Calonge for us is the best of Spain and the Villa La Gallega a most wonderful place to stay. We certainly hope to come back soon.
A Most Desirable Holiday Villa
We Have just returned from yet another wonderful holiday in Calonge where we stayed once again in villa La Gallega. The villa is beautifully situated against the hills with the sea just 10 minutes away. A lovely garden surrounds the villa, in which there is a large pool and barbeque.
The villa itself is well equiped and comfortable with plenty of space. Our party of seven ranged from an 82 year old to a two year old, and at no time did the villa feel cramped or overcrowded.
The local markets provide excellent fruit and vegetables and of course beautiful fish. There are also numerous restaurants where one can eat delicious food at reasonable prices.
There are delightful coastal walks nearby, safe beaches to bathe from and the little town at Pals is good for tourist shopping.
We would recommend La Gallega to return to year after year - as indeed we have been doing ourselves.
Thank you so much for your positive comments. I'm so glad that you enjoyed your holiday at La Gallega. From next year the villa will have internet and we are hoping to improve our pool facilities.
The nearest village to la Gallega is Calonge, about 3 km away. The medieval village offers shops, restaurants, bars and weekly market. The nearest beaches are at the family friendly resort of Sant Antoni de Calonge which has beautiful beaches and a long promenade with fish restaurants and bars. The lively fishing port of Palamos adjoins Sant Antoni to the north. If more private and rugged beaches are your style there are many secluded beaches along the coastline north of Palamos. For example the beaches around Pallafrugell, 20 minutes drive away. Heading inland from the villa is the beautiful nature reserve of Les Gavarres, suitable for walking or mountain biking. There are local walking trails which can be started from the villa itself. The medieval mountain top village of Romanya de la Selva is a short drive up into the hills and offers exquisite dining with stunning views over the surrounding countryside. Cosmopolitan Barcelona is an hour away, offering culture, shopping, dining.
