Apartment in Calella de Palafrugell, Costa Brava - less than 10 minutes walk from the beaches of both Calella and Llafranc
- english, french
We are a professional couple with adult children. We are happy to share what is essentially a family home retained for holidays and retreat with other families who will care for it as we do whilst enjoying its facilities and splendid location.
Jane purchased this Apartment in 1998
Why Jane chose Palafrugell
We simply fell in love with this part of Spain and found we could buy the very apartment in which we had spent a memorable family holiday. Calella and Lafranc are essentially spanish resorts attracting well healed families from Barcelona. As a result they now offer a very wide range of restaurants and some rather chic shops. the sandy beaches of Laffranc and the lovely coves of Calella are some of the pretiest place on the Costa Brava and manage to be both lively and peaceful at the same time. A taste of Catalunya in food,dance and music.

Good place to stay between the coves of Calella De Palafrugell and Llafranc
The apartment is in a well cared for estate of 42 apartments round two sides of a large garden with a very large pool and tennis court, and is approximately 1/4 mile from coastal path that joins Calella de Palafrugell and Llafranc
Fantastic location and amenities.
This is a very well appointed apartment in a great location with excellent underground parking.
There is an excellent terrace which gets the sun from midday until sunset. Beautiful views from the terrace to Calella and the sea. The complex is very well kept and the pool and surrounding area are stunning.
It is a very spacious apartment with all the required amenities. We spent most of our time out on the terrace as it was so nice.
Restaurants are just a 7 or 8 minute walk either into Calella or Llafranc. We would highly recommend this apartment to friends or anyone else visiting the area. The owner Jane was very helpful and replied very quickly to any queries. We hope to return in the not too distant future.
Frank thank you for the generous review we look forward to welcoming you again.
A hidden gem of a place in a stunning location
I can't recommend this holiday apartment enough. It has everything you need with bright spacious rooms and quality furnishings, fittings & utilities - the black out blinds were an unexpected luxury. Excellent sized balcony for dining at home (Alfresco style ☺ ) with a lovely view.
The grounds are immaculate with beautiful landscaping and the pool area was always peaceful, never too busy and with enough sun-beds to go round at anytime of day!
The location is also superb and only a moments walk to discover the stunning local area with it's gorgeous beaches and fantastic selection of unique shops, bars and restaurants.
Absolutely perfect for couples and families who want the flexibility of a self catered apartment.
We will definitely be back and we're considering making this an annual trip we loved it so much.
Thank you for your generous comments
Each year, my wife and I take our daughters (27,25 and 21 years old!!) on a family holiday, and this year, we were joined by a boyfriend. Organising everything is my responsibility, so I am always anxious not to disappoint. I had high hopes for this property and the nearby beaches and resorts of Calella and Llafranc. We were not disappointed in any way! The apartment is well furnished and equipped with modern appliances and plenty cutlery and crockery that allowed us to use the dishwasher. It was spotlessly clean. We ate all our meals on the balcony, which has lovely views over the pool, gardens and the hills beyond Calella. The huge pool is cleaned regularly, and the grounds are immaculately maintained. There were plenty of modern comfortable sunbeds around the pool, which was constantly in use without being too busy. The underground car park was a godsend, as weekend parking would otherwise be horrendous. The parking space is also generous (we hired a 7 seater) and secure. The beaches and restaurants/shops are 5-10 minutes easy walking distance away, with plenty of choice. Small supermarket across the road, with Aldi and Mercadona 10 minutes easy drive away in Palafrugell. It was unanimous in our family that nothing could have been better. Thank you for a fantastic holiday.
A perfect place for a relaxing holiday
The apartment was spacious, well presented, with a big kitchen that was perfect for cooking, and a lovely balcony, great for eating out in the evening and watching the sunset. The pool is huge! With loads of sun loungers and space to sunbathe. There's a handy little shop for everyday items over the road, and a big supermarket a 5 minute drive away. The town was only 10mins walk away and beautiful, with some excellent restaurants where you can get traditional local food right on the sea front. We really couldn't have wanted anything more for our holiday, highly recommended.
Spacious apartment, great location!
If you come to Llafranc once, you’re likely to come back again – we have many times and five of those to the same apartment! That says it all - highly recommended. I shouldn’t really write a favourable review, or you’ll want to stay here when we want to return!!
The bedrooms and living room are a good size, two modern bathrooms and a well-equipped kitchen. There is sufficient wardrobe space and a separate laundry area, great for drying clothes. Being on the top 3rd floor, you enjoy a lovely view of this gated, small development, with it’s huge swimming pool, beautifully maintained grounds and tennis court. You can even see the sea. Kids typically stay up late and have great fun with the run of the grounds late into the evening! The underground garage is a real bonus, particularly on weekends when parking is busier with the influx from Barcelona.
The apartment is ideally situated, within a short walk of the sandy coves of Callella or the beach at Llafranc, with a plethora of good restaurants. The little supermarket opposite is really convenient for fresh baguettes and croissants and essential provisions, with larger supermarkets just a short drive away and fresh veg, fish and meat markets in nearby Palafrugell. Just 20 minutes drive is an excellent Aqua Park, with over 20 rides, set within grounds ideal for a day’s picnic.
You’ll enjoy the best paella in Spain, if you drive to the beach front restaurants in Aiguablava!
