The villa was well located with easy access to Blanes and local amenities were only a few minutes drive away. Access to the villa is secured by an automated barrier at the front of the complex. The keys are provided with the villa.
We enjoyed the lovely surroundings and the large central Villa and swimming pool. There were plenty of seats and sun loungers. Although we really enjoyed the stay I would probably not return again. The first issue we had was that because this is only the second visit I have ever made to Spain, I was not aware of the requirement to transport your own refuse to the town bins. These green skips are spread throughout the towns and cities in Spain, but there is nothing near the villa and we had nowhere to store the stuff until we could get to a store and purchase some large bin liners. This lead to an unhappy owner who thought we were creating this mess on purpose. So I would say that some useful instructions for infrequent visitors to Spain or at least some tips on what to do around the villa would be useful.
Also there were discrepancies in the advertised facilities. The advert read :
Pool: Private outdoor pool (unheated)
General: Air conditioning, TV, Pool / Snooker table
The pool was there for sure, as was the TV, but no pool/snooker table was ever located.
The only air conditioning is in the top room of the villa which contains the four single beds. There was no other, so we ended up having to purchase two fans locally to cope.
Although the pool is fantastic, I would not really class it as private. Since (as we found out on arrival) the local caretaker lives in a small part of the main villa attached at the side. His family and friends use the pool (and why not) as did friends of the owner while we where there and additionally the occupants of the second villa when it was let. So actually it felt like a public swimming pool most of the time :-)
This was not much of an issue since the pool is huge. Lastly the lack of shade was a bit of a problem for us pasty white english folk :-)
With only one parasol per house, shade was at a bit of a premium.
The second (two singles) bedroom is not like the one shown in the pictures. It is a small box room also with no air-con, located on the ground floor.
On the plus side there are three bathrooms!
Oh yeah, no kettle or teapot, be warned ;-)
Over all a pleasant enough holiday location with lovely grounds within easy reach of Girona Airport (20-30mins) by car.
With the FYI above, you would be more prepared for the experience.
