Description

This stunning villa is in an exclusive residential area of Vizcondado de Cabanyes, in Baix Empordà in Catalonia, with private pool and stupendous views over Les Gavarres National Park and the Mediterranean coast. The setting offers a peaceful location for a family holiday, but within 10 minutes’ drive of Blue skies beaches of the Costa Brava, sporting activities and regional facilities. With private pool, and an elevated south facing position, sunshine is guaranteed on the pool all day long. The pool is down a short number of stone steps through a landscaped mature garden. A bright and welcoming property, the interior is finished to a high standard equipped with all modern conveniences. One WOW factor of the villa is the panoramic views enjoyed from the two dining terraces and main living areas; the full night sky enriches the Mediterranean dining experience. The location together with easy access to local facilities and exquisite kitchen and local wines makes it a memorable holiday destination. We restrict rentals to families only.

As 2019 was the first year that we have advertised the villa, there are few guests' reviews. In direct response to past reviews, we are pleased to say that the additional on-suite lavatory is now completed .

Given current uncertainties due to Covid-19, we will provide a 100% refund on any payments made if the government of Spain and/or your country prevent international travel due to Covid-19 preventing you from staying at the property on your original reservation dates. We guarantee that this exceptional policy overrides the standard cancelation policy as written under Rules and Policies. However, as soon as international travel is permitted from your country to Spain, then we will reissue the requests for any outstanding payments, and the normal cancellation policy (see Rules and Policies) will be reinstated.
The villa is deep cleaned before the arrival of each guests, and sanitiser is provided.
