El Viver stands on a small hill overlooking the woods of pine, oak, cork and strawberry trees and the fields on the far side of the brook which runs through the property.

The large balcony (25m2/270ft2) overlooks the woods with plenty of room for dining al fresco or just contemplating the wildlife and birdsong. In summer it’s sunny until about lunchtime and then shady for the rest of the day: so it doesn’t get too hot.

The private swimming pool is 30 yards from the house and has a terracotta surround with plenty of room for sunbathing and relaxation.

Although quiet and relaxing El Viver is well connected by plane (Girona airport is ten minutes away), motorway (five minutes to the main AP7) and train (five minutes to the station at Sils which serves Girona and Barcelona

Within ten minutes there are supermarkets and shops, the PGA Catalunya Golf Club, the Spas of Caldes de Malavella, a motor museum and a karting track. Our farm neighbours provide produce for La Granota: one of the many restaurants in the area.

The Costa Brava/Catalonia/Barcelona region

Catalonia and the Costa Brava offer just about everything you can want on a holiday:

from the beauty and diversity of an international city like Barcelona to the small coves and fishing towns along the rugged coast; from the calm of the Old Quarter in Girona to the discos and pubs at LLoret.

Catalonia evokes names such as Gaudí, Picasso and Dalí but also Sonar, 22@ and Ferran Adriá.

Whatever your preferences I can prepare suitable trips for the region.


El Viver is in an area of rolling hills dotted with small towns, fields and woods. The house is cool in the summer thanks to the shade from the trees and central heating makes it cosy in winter: cosier still if you want to light either or both of the log fires in the two living rooms: but the central heating is quite enough.

The El Viver computer has recommendations for day trips as well as the basics such as the local supermarkets and shops, the medical centre and the best place to buy fresh fish

Within ten minutes drive of El Viver you can find the following:

The Wetlands of Sils: aquatic and migratory birds.

The PGA Catalunya Golf club with two internationally renowned courses.

The Claret Motorcar Museum.

Two Spas, Vichy Catalan and El Prats, in Caldes de Malavella: treat yourself to some serious massage.

Within 30 minutes:

The city of Girona with its Old Quarter and Jewish Quarter.

Tossa del Mar: one of the quieter beaches on the southern Costa Brava

What to see from the balcony and around the villa:

"An excellent relaxing place to stay"

We were delighted with the house, it was very clean, modern, and well-equipped. This property stands out because of its location, you are completely secluded and away from any hustle and bustle, yet close enough to the main road for easy access to places in the region.
We travelled with young children and a teenager, and the lovely pool kept them all happy. The house is cool on the hottest day, and meals on the terrace were a favourite part of the day - make sure you take insect repellent though!
We would not hesitate to recommend this property to large families or groups.
