great time in port de la selva!
Excellent villa! Nice hosts. Great for families. Near to beach - property includes beach gear (chairs, umbrellas, etc.). Amazing views! Highly recommended.
Very very nice property with amazing views
la casa è meravigliosa, spazi ampi, armoniosi e molto accoglienti, la ricerca dei particolari è curata nei minimi dettagli, la vista da qualsivoglia punto della villa è spettacolare dove poter godere albe e tramonti da sogno. la villa è ubicata a picco sul mare non distante dal paesino nel quale è possibile trovare ogni genere di necessità. Noi abbiamo soggiornato una settimana a gennaio e fortunatamente abbiamo respirato una quieta impareggiabile che ricercavamo dopo un anno di lavoro, gli abitanti di el port de la selva ci hanno informato che da maggio a settembre vi è molto turismo come comprensibilmente vi è in ogni località balneare. Ci ritorneremo sicuramente perchè abbiamo dei ricordi superbi grazie non di meno ai proprietari di casa che sono persone deliziose, discrete e super disponibili!
Great villa. Unforgettable views!
My wife and I stayed in this property in November 2011. At first, looking at the advert we thought that the place was going to be nice, but once we got there we found out that the villa was better even that what we expected. The villa is located in a very impressive spot of la Costa Brava. From the livingroom (there are 2 of them) there are unobstructed views of both the natural park and the pirinees mountains (and obviouslly the sea). A couple of times we got up early on the morning to see the sunrise which was spectacular. Besides its location, the villa was in great shape, had plenty of kitchen utensils, iron, ironing board, blowdryers, towels so you could feel like home in this aspect. We couldn't use the swimigpool for obvious reasons (it was not so cold but too cold as to swim) but it looked nice and was very clean. We took many day trips around the area and went to nice restaurants so in summary we loved the place and we are looking forward to come back next summer!
una casa bellissima e molto ben curata nei dettagli, abbiamo avuto qualche giorno ventoso ma la posizione e la vista che si gode ci hanno fatto comunque fare una vacanza veramente riposante, la consiglio a tutti gli amanti del mare e della vita tranquilla.
fuori del paese ma raggiungibile in pochi minuti anche a piedi, tra le altre cose un paesino molto accogliente e non troverete turismo di massa, spero che El port de la Selva si conservi intatta come l'ho trovata.
Inoltre i padroni di casa sono delle persone veramente gentili e precise e vorrei ringraziarli ancora per tutto.

Extraordinary Vacation Home in Wonderful Village
We were a group of extended family from California (7 adults + 2 children ranging from ages 5 - 75) and this villa was perfect for all of us. Large enough that there was always a place for some quiet time, and also room for all of us to eat together (large tables inside and outside) and hang out together.
We could walk to the lovely isolated beach cove (and bring home wild rosemary to use for dinner), or take the short drive to the public beach with playground. The villa is also a perfect starting point for day trips to Cadaques, France, Roses, etc - though we also enjoyed just spending days lounging around "our" villa. Truly stunning views from every window.
The gorgeous furnishings & linens are appropriate for a fine home - not like some of the drab furniture we've found at other rentals. We did have one small problem with needing a repair and it was handled by the charming owner immediately. I really can't say enough about this wonderful place, and we look forward to spending many more family vacations here as my children grow up.
El Port de la Selva is one of the best kept secrets of Catalunya. Located in northern Costa Brava,it is surrounded by the beatiful Natural Park of El cap de Creus. From the villa itself there are many nice paths to walk through the Natural Park, leading to unspoiled beaches, wildlife and typical Mediterranean small coves.
