"Great house, great location in a lovely part of Spain"
We stayed here as a group of 7 adults for the 5th time this year (have been up to 9 of us in past years). The house is excellent - it has beautiful views of the sea and the local 'mountain'… More

"Nice distant views but noisy."
The owners are well organised and the booking procedures were easy. Good contact mainly by email. The property is set high on a hillside with splendid views to the bay of Pals, in a residential estate of individual properties. The house was well presented on arrival and the neighbouring houses are kept tidy. There are however quite a number of nearby properties that do not appear to have been habited for many years or perhaps are lived in for two weeks of the year only.
The Pool area is excellent and the owners provided lots of inflatable toys. The overall plot size is smaller than we imagined from the photos. I would guess its on a 500/600 mtr plot whereas the photos look more like the standard 1000 mtr plot. The gardens are high maintenance with debris falling from the trees quite often, however they are maintained by a gardener and the Poolman deals with the debris in the pool every few days. Like many older spanish houses the bedrooms are very small with just enough room to walk around the bed and nothing else. The living areas are good enough though. Kitchen is good conditon, clean, functional but not much space for food storage like cereals, boxes, tins & jars.
We found Pals beach(3Km) to be a bit windy and rough seas, the sand is course. We thought it was worth the drive to llafranc or agua blava on cooler windy days. There is a very handy supermarket within walking distance and a spit roast chicken eat-in or take away a five mins drive away near Pals village. Our only disappointment was the lack of peace / quiet. There always seems to be a contractor nearby cutting trees, cutting grass, trimming hedges, blowing debris etc with noisy petrol powered tools. The two Alsatian dogs in the house below can also be a source of annoyance when the owners allow them to bark all day. To sum up quite a good house, good pool, well presented but not a peaceful location during our stay. PS Beds are extremely hard.ortho matresses.
