Communication with Damien was outstanding, he responded quickly every time. The house is large over 3 floors. The downstairs bathroom I would say I should only for occasional use and is in 3rd floor along with a garage. The kitchen is small and there is no kettle. The agency provided us with towels but I'm not sure if this is the norm, so best to ask. We found you needed to plan who was getting showers when, which in the heat was a nuisance as the hot water runs out quickly and you need to wait for it to heat up again. The walk to shops and beach is about 10 mins BUT bear in mind this is down a very steep hill and bringing back shopping can become a little wearing if you've no car. Also there's no air con , we were there late Aug and it was very hot indeed. The pool area was brilliant, very clean and although we were there for 8 nights and used it frequently we never saw another soul....perfect! Locally shopping is expensive so factor it in to your costs, there's a Lidl in the main town of Palafrugell (not Calella de Palafrugell please note!) and you can get bus there. Local tourist bus recommended too.
Location is great but the house lacks the finer details for a comfortable stay. Supplies, linens, towels, etc were all an issue. The beds are of average or below average comfort level and the neighbourhood is very noisy at night. ALL NIGHT. It is difficult to get a good nights sleep here. You can make up for this by enjoying a nice short walk to the beach and relaxing and snoozing during the day at the beach. If you are a night owl this place will be fine for you. The best feature of this home is its locationwith nearby beaches and lovely restaurants in the villages and a very long access to beautiful trails along the shoreline which is very scenic. We could not find the pool but apparently is it somewhere nearby you cannot easily see it or access it from the unit. I believe this unit could be improved if the owner gains some knowledge of how to provide comfortable nightly rentals including the supplies and things you want to have while travelling and arranges to meet you with keys and towels so you don't have to go walking to the agency to obtain.
Minha experiencia nesta casa foi maravilhosa ! Ela é ainda mais encantadora do que mostram as fotos. Muito iluminada e ventilada em todos os ambientes, e o jardim, um lugar super agradável para tomar café da manhã ou apreciar as estrelas. O bairro é silencioso, ótimo para caminhadas ,e o centro da vila, assim como a praia, dá para ir a pé. Acho que é especial para famílias e comporta bem 6 pessoas. Todos utensílios de cozinha estavam limpos e funcionaram bem. Parabéns ao anfitrião que deixou tudo arrumado para nossa estadia, inclusive nos enviou um anexo por email com todas as informações sobre a casa e recomendações sobre os lugares turísticos da redondeza. Nos sentimos muito bem acolhidos. Gratidão !
Encontramos la casa tal y como nos la describió Damien, estaba en un barrio tranquilo y agradable. Se encontraba a una distancia caminable de la playa y suficientemente alejada para tener tranquilidad. Interactuamos con algunos vecinos, que fueron muy amables. Y la comunicación con Damien, pre, durante y post estancia fue fluida y buena. Estuvimos muy a gusto.
Hemos pasado una semana fantástica en casa de Damien. La casa es muy bonita y espaciosa, ideal para ir en familia o con amigos. Dispone de jardín privado y piscina comunitaria que prácticamente teniamos para nosotros solos ;) Está situada a unos 15 min a pie de la playa, en una zona muy tranquila. Damien ha sido muy amable y atento en todo momento. Volveríamos a repetir sin duda. Muchas gracias por todo, Damien!
