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.

We update the villa every year, so you have new crockery, pans, new induction oven, new SMEG fridge, new beds and the pool, garden and house is maintained to a very high standard.

Comfortable kingsize beds and good quality linens for a good nights sleep, ceiling fans and stand alone fans in all bedrooms. New bathroom fittings plus heated pool side shower - downstairs separate wc.

Large outside balcony accessed from both king sized bedrooms so adults can enjoy a drink outside overlooking the pool - lit up at night.

Further details indoors

The villa is open plan downstairs creating a good flow, the kitchen is well situated with a door leading outside. The lounge leads onto a large sun room where you can catch the sun from morning to evening, with views over the garden and the Gavarres.

Steps lead down to a terrace for dining or sitting overlooking the beautiful garden. The villa is set in a three quarters of an acre garden with panoramic views of the beautiful Gavarres hills.

The house is well equipped with all modern facilities. We fitted a new washing machine, oven & hob in 2013 in the kitchen. The lounge has a new satellite TV, DVDs, PS2 and games, sofa bed, woodburner, and comfortable curved sofa to reflect the curved tower room. Plenty of books, children's toys, dvds, leaflets and information on what to do - from activities to restaurants. Wifi and a printer is provided. Central heating was fitted in 2014, making the house really comfortable for late breaks or even skiing an hour and a half away.

Upstairs the bedrooms with quality Designers Guild & Christy linens: king-size tower bedroom with new king-size sprung bed, views to Gavarres and opening onto a large terrace with table and chairs for morning coffee or evening drinks! The double or twin room also opens on to this. Both rooms have ceiling fans. The children's room is equipped with new bunk bed and we have a travel cot, new Graco bassinet and high chair too, there is a portable fan here.

The brand new bathroom was refitted in 2013 and has a new powerful overhead shower with screen, in the full size bath and modern features.

The garden is great for children, while the adults have plenty of comfortable loungers for sunbathing, and seating; outside table and chairs, Weber BBQ. The pool is large, 8m x 4 with a shallow end with Roman Steps and a seating and sunbathing area around the pool, to enjoy the views.

REVIEWS FROM OUR GUEST BOOK 2014 We have had 18 five star reviews

Thank you for having us here we have enjoyed your nice house for a week, together with the beautiful garden and the new swimming pool. A very quiet place which we could recommend t our friends, we took long walks along the coast from Sant Antoni and discovered infinite varieties of coast, from bays to wild coast, such a pleasure. What a perfect holiday!
Jean et Monique, Oct 2014

We're back for the second time and fully enjoyed the beach and new pool! We have explored further afield and relaxed thoroughly, thank you Sue and Mike.
Luke and Penny August 2014

Wonderful villa in gorgeous location at the end of the road, so quiet and peaceful. Absolutely beautiful views over the hillsides with a lovely pool and terraces with plenty of space in nicely landscaped gardens. We enjoyed evening bbqs with jugs of sangria, watching the sun go down over the hills. Nice interior with everything needed for holiday stay, Very handy for the highway with lots of lovely little towns and villages to explore. We found lots of picturesque coves and also ventured further afield to the Dali triangle. We have no hesitation in recommending this villa and the owner and agents were extremely helpful when we had questions about restaurants etc..
Wendy and family July 2014

Not only is this a very attractive, well appointed property but it has a sense of home, set in a beautiful peaceful landscape, yet within an easy drive to lovely coastline and amenities. The gardens are well maintained and benefit from a brand new swimming pool, a real bonus! I would thoroughly recommend this property and certainly hope to visit again.

Location description from owner

The Costa Brava 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.

Calonge

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.

“Amazing villa”

Reviewed 12 Oct 2015

We stayed at the villa in August and had a fantastic holiday. The house itself is very comfortable, with modern furnishings, plenty of cooking and eating equipment - all new. the bedrooms are bright and airy with fantastic views of the area. Outside, the pool area is very large, plenty is sun beds and space and the pool was lovely. The beaches are all nearby, great beachfront restaurants and atmosphere in Platja d'aro and quieter coves and small harbours a short drive away. The owner was very helpful and informative about the area. we would definitely return.

“Luxurious, relaxing and spacious”

Reviewed 16 Jun 2012

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.

“Beautiful villa”

Reviewed 15 Jun 2012

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.

Owner's reply: 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!”

Reviewed 7 Sep 2011

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.

Owner's reply: 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”

Reviewed 8 Jun 2011

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.

Owner's reply: 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.
