Perfectly Peaceful in Every Way!
We were a group of 7 Adults (and 1 child) staying at this property.
The villa was spotless on arrival and there was the added bonus of a water dispenser.
The pool area was great and the upper terrace which we used most nights for a bbq gave outstanding views across Calonge and beyond.
The local village was approx a mile away and very local in dialect which we loved. It was also all very very clean and quiet.
A local bakers under the castle and coffee shop in the village (Girbal) we’re firm favourites which we visited most mornings.
The Spar Supermarket just down the road (less than a mile) was visited daily and had everything we needed (including fresh meat from the butchery that we had on the bbq, red wine at €1.50 per litre and beer at 0.40 per can - what more can you want!?)
We couldn’t fault anything about the town and the villa and we hope to visit again in the future.
A big thank you to Joan and Trevor
excellent villa stay
This was an excellent place to stay as six adults. Clean, spacious, very well-equipped, and the bicycles were particularly welcome. Joan met us and was available and helpful. The pool was spotless, big enough to both swim and play in, and beautifully lit at night.
The position was remarkable: a level cycle/drive from the village or the sea, and then a short steepish slope up to the villa, which gave a fine view.of both the nearby wooded hills, and the coast further away. Very easy to get to the beach to swim, fine supermarkets and so on.
The bikes enabled us to explore the routes in the plain, and the “green-way” was beautiful, as was the route around the Castell and La Fosca beaches.
My only small negative comment relates to the architect: other reviewers have pointed out that there should be a door between the kitchen and the outside eating area. But this was not a great hindrance, and the outside table and barbecue were just perfect, as they were not overlooked and bordered on undeveloped land, all with a wonderful view both of the hills and the coast. There was a good choice for sitting outside: by the pool, on the balcony, or in the barbecue area.
Peaceful lovely villa in a great location
Stayed for a week in casa ben ross was very clean with beautiful pool. Great location and roads great for cycling
Lovely villa in a beautiful part of spain
Booking process was easy and Joan was at the villa to welcome us on arrival and on departure.
The villa is in a very nice, quiet residential area, it is spacious and was perfect for the six of us but could accommodate more easily.
The villa is great but if I were being critical I would recommend some lighting on the steps to the outdoor kitchen/dining area, even better would be to replace the window in the dining room.with a door as there is a reasonably flat path to the outdoor dining area.
The pool and pool area is kept very clean and is a good size with ample sun beds.
Perfectly positioned to explore Catalonia, a good 1.5 hour drive takes you to some beautiful towns in the foothills of the Pyrenees whilst Girona and many beaches and coves are within minutes driving distance. My favourites were Rupit (1.5hr) and Peratallada (30 mins). Tamariu, Aquiblava (very busy but lovely) and San Pol, a long stretch of clean beach with water sports and a good selection of restaurants.
Supermarket choice is good with an Pizjoan, Eurostar, Aldi and Mercadona within 5-10 min drive.
There are a few local restaurants but not practical to walk as too dark, Rio D’orb was nice. We ate in Palomas Port area a few times which has a good selection of restaurants on the front and tapas bars on the back streets.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this well appointed villa. Pool provided hours of fun for children and adults! Very clean with washing machine and tumble dryer added bonus. Good location as near many beaches and supermarkets. Do go to Palamos in the evening as have craft markets as well as boutique shops. Restaurants plentiful here. Castell beach lovely. Only downside to villa is amount of stairs. However we all had a wonderful holiday- children did not want to leave!
Thank you for taking the time to write a review and recommendations for future clients. Hope to see you again in the future.
The best holiday rental we have ever used
Our trip to Spain did not bode well when our flight from Bournemouth to Girona Barcelona was delayed by almost 6 hours - not much fun with a toddler and a five month old baby! On top of that the delayed flight meant our car rental company had closed well before our flight arrived so we had to get a Taxi to our destination which cost us 90 euro. Not a good start you might think but when you wake up the following morning and look out of the bedroom window of this beautiful Villa, all of the previous days troubles fade into the background. This place is a stunner and as a family we cannot say enough about it. Joan and Trevor were brilliant, they organised travel cots, obtained food for our arrival and even drove us back to the airport the following day to pick up our rental cars. So, if you want to stay in a beautiful place with all the mod cons and with stunning views this is the place for you!
Casa Benross is individually designed and has many unique features . The swimming pool is totally private and not overlooked.
A car is recommended to take advantage of the local golf courses, water sports, gastronomy and numerous White flag beaches.
Other Activities: The Villa has 4 mountain bikes for residents use and for the energetic there's the 'Aqua Diver ' water park 5 minutes away.
