About Richard Walker
Carol and I (Richard) have spent many family holidays in Catalonia We now tend to use the apartment for long weekends as well, since flying to and from Gerona airport has become so much easier than it used to be. Occasionally we fly via Barcelona if we want to combine the holiday with a visit to this fantastic city. Our daughters having used the apartment as children now use it for their family holidays. We live in Halifax, West Yorkshire. Our time is spent with a mixture of work, family, gardening and watching Rugby League and or Motor Racing.
Richard Walker purchased this Apartment in 1991
Why Richard Walker chose Pals
We had many family holidays at the camp site at Cypsela (Playa De Pals) and fell in love with the area. We tried a few holidays elsewhere and eventually decided we liked the area so much more than anywhere else that we bought 'our second home' here. Our children, having grown up with family holidays in the area, still go back as often as they can. We like it when its busy mid season and like it when its quiet from September to June we just use it to get away and relax. You will be able to see before you go on our website catalunya org uk that we have got to know the area very well.
What makes this Apartment unique
The apartments in El Coto (Playa De Pals) are around 50% owned by Spanish people as holiday homes, which must say something good about their appeal. This tends to mean that weekends are often quite well occupied as the owners come up from Barcelona for Saturday and Sunday but during the week they are never overcrowded. Out of season they are well suited for golfers with 3 courses very close by. Anyone interested in motor racing will find it a great combination of holiday and sport should they want to visit the Circuit of Catalunya about an hour and a half away. We have been to the Spanish Grand Prix on many occasions as part of our holiday.

Perfect for our stay
Lovely apartment with all the facilities we needed to explore the beautiful local area
Many thanks. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay at our apartment.
All you need in quiet, stunning part of Spain
Clean, neat, well equipped apartment in a quiet, beautiful part of the Spanish coast.
We stayed in early June and effectively had the spotless pool and gardens to ourselves.
2 bedrooms - perfect for our family of 2 adults, 7yr old, 5yr old and 7 month old - the owners were super helpful in advance of our stay and helped to arrange for a cot for our baby too.
Many thanks for your kind comments, you certainly seem to have enjoyed the area as much as we do.
Amazing Location to Explore
A very well kept property with all the amenities you require. They even supply beach equipment from beach chairs to rush mats and umbrellas.
The kitchen is modern and a good size extending into a comfortable living area where you walk through to a patio area which catches the sun in the morning. Great for breakfasting. The double bedroom is comfortable, and the 2nd bedroom was perfect for Grandad and Grandson. The swimming pool was kept clean. It has a shallow and deep end, so perfect for the kids.
You will need a car to be able to visit the vast surrounding areas. The surrounding villages and towns must be visited as they have amazing restaurants and beautiful beaches. Our favorites were Begur, Aguablava and Pallafrugel.
Highly recommend if you enjoy exploring.
Just to manage expectations the supply of beach equipment ‘ebbs and flows’ as it’s kept in an outside storage area and is dependent on items being borrowed and returned. During the season we have no control of what gets broken or lost. However, there is usually sufficient for most families.
Many thanks for the five star comments about the apartment and it’s surrounding area.
Everything has been thought of for this apartment, it is modern, clean, very comfortable and well equipped. There are lovely little touches such as plenty of information on the surrounding area from beaches to restaurants, and books to read. The pool is a great size and more than enough for two teenage boys. All contact with Richard was great and really appreciated a late check out on our last day. Would definitely recommend this property, a great base for visiting great beeches and exploring the area.
Many thanks for your 5 star review. Your comments are very much appreciated. We hope to have you stay again in the future.
Highly recommended, beautiful and well equipped!
What a gorgeous apartment in such a beautiful part of Spain. The apartment is really well equipped, extremely clean and comfortable. It's a home from home. There isn't an item of kitchen equipment that you will need that isn't there. There is a DVD player, loads of CDs, a washing machine and even staple foods left in the cupboard.
It has a great location, away from the hustle and bustle but close enough to walk out to a supermarket, restaurants, tennis and mini golf etc.
There is so much to do in the area, we highly recommend Parc Aventura down the road where the kids did tree top walking and zip wiring.
We hired a car which was perfect for exploring all the beautiful coves and beaches in the area. I would also recommend a visit to Begur on market day and a walk up to the top of the old castle.
This really is a beautiful part of Spain and a great apartment. It's on the ground floor with a little garden which is great for toddlers as it doesn't go straight out onto the pool.
The owners are very helpful and informative and have gone to a lot of trouble of leaving information in the apartment for places to visit and eat.
We're not golfers but there is a beautiful golf course around the corner.
We will definitely go back!!
Many thanks for your comprehensive review and look forward to you returning in the future.
