Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Beautiful Villa Florencia is the perfect relaxing environment for your holiday. An easy drive to Palamos, Calonge, S'Agaro & St Feliu and a short distance to Begur, Aguablava, Llafranc & Calella. The perfect get away from it all property, country views, peaceful surroundings with the beach a short drive away.
Viscondado de Cabanyes is a prestigious series of villas set upon a hillside just outside Calonge overlooking the Gavarres where you can walk, cycle or just take in the scenery. All the villas have been stylishly architecturally designed and we are lucky to have space around us with plenty of beautiful scenery. Our villa is at the end of a quiet cul de sac on level ground, some of the villas in Cabanyes have very steep drives.
The peace of Cabanyes after a busy day on the beach is fantastic and the garden is the highlight of the property with its views of the Gavarres and is very restful. The garden has sun from first thing in the morning until sunset so is perfect for evening barbecues.

REVIEWS FROM OUR GUEST BOOK 2013
"Thank you for a lovely week in your wonderful house and beautiful garden! The weather was perfect and we could not have had a better break to recharge our batteries. Lynda and Marcel Oct 2013
"Thank you we had a really enjoyable week - we had everything we needed in the villa - appreciated the cookery books! Teenagers loved the water park. Beautiful beaches as advertised. Overall a great spot with lots to explore. Information files in the villa very useful for quickly identifying places of interest." Sept 1 2012
" Lovely stay. Stunning views over mountains from the terrace, which we enjoyed every evening. The villa has a beautiful garden and plenty of home essentials to make you feel at home. Would recommend all the beaches around, which are all great for the kids. Great stay". Aug 18 2012
The Catalunia region
This part of the Costa Brava is a beautiful, rugged, unique part of Spain, with its own character and language. The area attracts visitors from all over Spain and Europe who head here to enjoy the food, history, culture, scenery - sandy beaches and pine clad coves; near the Mediterranean with it's easy access and temperate climate.
The Cami de Ronda is a coastal path that winds through pine coves, past beautiful beaches & the twinkling Mediterranean, from S'Agaro in the South to Begur north of the region.
The Dali museum in Figueras and the Dali triangle is easily reached from Calonge, whilst the Picasso & Science museums, Park Guill, Sagrada Familia and Aquarium in Barcelona is an hour and ten minutes away on the train from the station at Caldes ( an easy 20 minute drive with free parking ).
kiing in Volter 2000 Camprodon is 1 hour and a half away.
Viscondado de Cabanyes is set amongst the Gavarres range of hills, so it is a peaceful spot but only a short drive - ten minutes away from the beaches and night-life or Tapas bars and restaurants of the Costa Brava - totally unspoilt by tacky tourism, this area is famed for it's culture in nearby Palamos and medieval Calonge, and further afield - 10 km to the harbours and beaches of Llafranc and Calella de Palafrugell.
A five minute drive takes you to the busier town nearby for some night-life at Platja d'Aro or Saint Antoni de Calonge and the waterpark Aquadiver or the many children's activities on the sandy beaches nearby. Great restaurants, bars, shopping in Girona the lovely Rjojan and Penedes wine, and of course the Golf, PGA Catalunya and many other courses are nearby.
Great for cycling, we have plenty of information in the villa with the cycle routes, maps and books of the area.

"Luxurious, relaxing and spacious"
We travelled with our 18 month old and our 4 year old. After a drive from Barcelona, during which we got a little lost, we called the property managers Ron and Doreen, to say we were nearly there. Ron immediately drove to meet us and direct us to the villa. Throughout, we saw little of Ron and Doreen, but we always knew that if we had any questions or problems, they would be available.
The villa is set overlooking a beautiful valley of woodland. It is set in a large private garden and has a great conservatory and patio on which to relax. The beach is a short car journey away (5 mins). The town of Calonge is even closer.
There's a few sets of steps in the villa and the garden, so it might not be advisable for those just learning to walk. Overall though, it's a lovely place.

We stayed at the Villa Florencia in June 2012 with our two young children. It was a beautiful villa, with great views. Really well equipped with everything we needed. It was a great place to explore the beautiful Costa Brava coast and villages.
Thankyou! We try to think of everything that you may need for families with young children and we are so glad that you enjoyed your stay, the nearby beaches and relaxing environment help!

"what a fantastic holiday!"
We stayed here for 2 weeks, an extended family of 2 young children, 2 adults and 2 grandparents - and there was something for everyone. The villa was superb -comfortable, clean, tidy and very well equipped. It was an ideal base to explore the area, which we know very well. We visited local markets, beaches, restaurants, and had a day trip by train to Barcelona. The weather was glorious, and we all had a thoroughly enjoyable holiday. We would certainly recommend this lovely villa, and would have no hesitation in staying there again.
Thank you for your kind review, we are so glad that you enjoyed your holiday and stay at Villa Florencia. We love the villa's proximity to the sea but peaceful location - perfect for exploring the area and are also pleased that you found the Villa well equipped and comfortable.

"Lovely villa with great views"
We had a lovely stay in May 2011. The villa is beautiful,well equipped & with very comfortable beds, nice linen etc.
In a peaceful location but plrenty to do in the area with nearby walks, beaches & restaurants.
A great base for all times of the year, we hope to return to explore some of the lovely walks in the area & maybe visit Barcelona for the day which is very accessible by train.
The owners & managing agents were very helpful but not intrusive, plenty of information available & maps & books of the area at the villa for our use.
Recommend Le Refuge de Pescadors for lunch.
Thankyou for your kind review. We furnished the villa with comfort in mind and the beds, linens, towels are all very good quality - Zara, Christy, Next .. with a lovely new kingsize sprung bed in the tower bedroom. Villa Florencia is in a tranquil spot and we are so glad you enjoyed your stay visiting the nearby beaches and villages.
