Lovely clean and spacious house in great location
Arrived a little later than expected due to traffic but this was not a problem for Ken and Sandra who met us at the house and showed us around. They gave us a quick resume of the area and left us with maps and brochures and an idea of where to go and what to do. The house and pool were well maintained, Ken came out every few days (early, we rarely saw him) to maintain the pool, and nothing was too much trouble when required.
The house is in a quiet location, it is only a 10 minute walk down to the front, slightly longer coming back as it is a steady incline, but should not pose a problem for the less mobile.
The property has the benefit of a very large outdoor space, with mixed sunshine and shady areas over two levels, with the pool seeing the sun for the majority of the day.
I would definitely recommend this property, we stayed as a family with 3 children ranging from 7 to 21 years old, the area offers something for everyone.
I would stay here again if we revisit this area of Spain.
Just whats required!
2nd stay following last years great stay. Ken and Sandra couldn't be more helpful with the villa being spotless. Just like being home from home! Only 15/20 minutes walk straight down the road to the beach and all the bars and restaurants.There are some great local restaurants serving great food at great prices. The villa is more than big enough with a lovely swimming pool. Its also very quite at night which makes for a late start the next morning. Very highly recomended
Just a great holiday!
We have stayed many times in the area and this is great villa for a relaxing family holiday. Sandra and Ken couldn't be more helpful. Upon arrival we met at a convenient location and Sandra and Ken showed us to the villa. Cleanliness was fantastic and everything you require was there. The villa is not on a main road side its quite at night but near enough to walk to the beach. The pool was lovely and everything you could ask for. A great place to explore from including spending a couple of days in Port Aventura for the thrill seekers.
entertainment for children at the beaches and water sports availaCoast/Beach:
Approximately 10/15 minutes walk to Riells beach with its bars, shops and restaurants. A car is recommended if you wish to explore the other beaches in the area. A very pleasant, but longer walk into the old centre of L'Escala with its two smaller beaches.
