5* Family Apartment
We had a wonderful stay myself, daughter and grand daughter and my son from Australia and his girl friend we found the size of the apartment for all us just perfect. Three modern bedrooms with ample storage, 2 modern bathrooms one with a bath as well as a shower which were perfect for our family dynamics. The beds were so comfortable and plenty of pillows and lovely bedding. Lovely and very comfortable seating in the lounge area, ample size kitchen with everything a family would need for their stay we only ever had breakfast and snack at lunchtime In the apartment we ate out in the evenings. The Washing machine was very useful to refresh our beach towels during our stay as well as a good sized fridge freezer. The large balcony with table and chairs over looking the pool was a fabulous size and perfect to sit on especially late afternoon and evening relaxing and chilling. The two beaches we used were both in Calella in different coves no sun loungers but there were plenty of rocks as well as sand to sit on. Eating out and drinking we alternated between Calella and Llfranc where we enjoyed some fabulous food we found the prices rather expensive and not a lot of plain foods for some members of our family but we managed to find something to suit us all. We spent many hours in the pool which was a must for our holiday, it never got over crowded even when families came at the weekend the grass around the pool was lushest and perfect for sunbathing with towels. The beaches are all with a five minute walk down a hill/slope even on very hot days we found the walk back up to the main road not to bad at all. We found the information folder very useful with some good food recommendations, places to visit and the local bus timetable which was so handy with stops directly outside. My only small negative was no air conditioning especially when it reached 36 however there were three fans we were made good use of perhaps another one would of been beneficial so one for each bedroom and one in the lounge .
I would recommend this apartment if you were staying in this area of Costa Brava as it is situated perfectly for both Calella and Llfranc which are stunning and picturesque but we found them to be very quiet and very expensive, most places were restaurants, there was only one bar which played music where you could just sit and enjoy a drink that didn't open until gone 8 o'clock .
A car is needed as taxis are very expensive.
A cool box would of been useful
Well equiped property in a quiet complex with a fantastic location
Lovely top floor apartment with great views over the large communal pool. Well equipped with everything you could wish for including beach toys, umbrellas, tennis equipment, table tennis equipment and some basic English TV channels.
Location was great, just a five minute walk down to the town and the first of many lovely beaches and coves.
The information pack in the apartment was really good, covered all bases such as how to use items in the apartment itself, how to use the complex facilities, recommendations of where to eat and even maps of several walks to go on which was extremely useful, thank you.
Overall a great apartment, well located in a lovely town with thoughtful owners, brilliant.
Thanks for taking the time to write a review and for your positive comments. This really helps us in renting the apartment.
After the "nightmare" start ( all my fault as usual ! ) We are so pleased that you had a nice time.

Perfect place for a family vacation!
The apartment is in a terrific location and was just right for our inter-generational family of five, including two young children. We enjoyed the pool, nearby beaches, coastal paths, medieval villages, and the gorgeous beach towns in the Costa Brava. The apartment was exactly as advertised, and the owner was very helpful. I hope someday to return, and I would recommend this apartment without hesitation to my friends and family.
Thanks for taking the time to write such a nice review. This really helps us in renting out the apartment. Glad you had a good time. Hope the journey home was not too traumatic !.
We are still telling the tale of the "mad" Americans who swam from Calella to Llafranc !!
Kind regards. Nick
Perfect apartment, good facilities, great location
We stayed at the apartment with our 2 children, aged 8 and 7 in July/August. We had a fantastic week. The apartment is equipped with everything you need, was clean and very comfortable. The resort has everything - beaches with calm, clear seas (good for snorkelling), lovely walks along the coast and plenty of restaurants. The apartment complex is lovely with a pool, tennis court, table tennis and basketball which were all pleasant to use and never too busy despite the high season. We also visited Girona, Pals, Figueres and other smaller places whilst there, a great region to explore. However you don't need to go anywhere, you can walk to lots of restaurants/beaches and could have easily stayed in resort all week. Overall very chilled out, fantastic weather and delicious food. Definitely recommend this property. All dealings with the owner and access were efficient, genuine and friendly.
Well equipped apartment in beautiful village
We (3 generations) have just spent a lovely week at Nick and June's Apartment in Calella de Palafrugel. The apartment is well equipped and feels homely. The swimming pool, tennis court and table tennis were well used by our boys and competition increased against the adults. The apartment is within an easy 5 min walk of the centre of town with a variety of small beaches, shops and restaurants to choose from. The Cami de Ronda walk along the Costa Brava can easily be accessed from the village with beautiful coastal walks to the Botanic Gardens and to Llafranc an equally pretty adjacent village.
We have enjoyed the week so much we hope to return next year.
Lovely place, amazing holiday!!!
Felt I had to write a few words to express what a great time we had in la Pineda last month. Calella and the surrounding area is truly stunning. Having spent several holidays in the Balearics, Southern Spain and the Canary Islands I can safely say this area topped the lot by quite a distance.
The apartment is exactly as advertised, comfortable, well equipped and spotlessly clean. The complex is well located as well, 5 minute walk from the beaches, shops and restaurants in the village. It's a 5 minute drive to the supermarket in palafrugell.
The only (very minor!) grumble we could have was that the pool was dirty when we arrived and wasn't cleaned until the Friday afternoon before we went home. Fortunately the med was warm enough for a swim!
One other thing to note, the apartment is on the top floor of the complex with no lift access, not suitable for wheelchairs, and we found it quite hard work with the pushchair as well, although not so much that it would put us off of going again!
Only a 5 minute stroll to the beaches in Calella. No hassle of having to drive and park to go to the beach.
Girona airport 45 mins. Barcelona airport 1 hour 30 mins. Perpignan airport 1 hour 30 minutes. Car hire is desirable but not essential. We can arrange transport to and from Girona airport if required. Regular, reliable bus service into Palafrugell.
Calella 5 min walk. Palafrugell 5 min drive. Girona 45 min drive. Figueres 50 min drive. Barcelona 1½ hour drive. Perpignan (France) 1½ hour drive.
Several local supermarkets in Calella, cash point, newsagents, chemists and souvenir shops.Daily market in Palafrugell and large Market on Sunday. Variety of restaurants in Calella and Llafranc. Excellent for swimming, scuba diving and sailing. Picturesque coastal walks to the Botanical Gardens at Cap Roig or to the Light House at El Far. Figueres for the Dali Museum. Girona for historic old town and shopping. Empuries for the world famous Roman remains. La Bisbal for pottery and ceramics. A must visit are the medieval villages of Pals and Peretallada.
