About the home
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.

The Costa Brava/Catalonia/Barcelona 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 Calonge / Cabanyes area
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 or an hour's train ride to Barcelona from nearby Caldes de Malavella ( twenty minutes drive away ), the lovely Rjojan and Penedes wine, and of course the Golf, PGA Catalunya and many other courses are nearby.

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!

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.
