Holiday Rental House
At Maremar we have the best of all worlds - luxury, space, modernity, comfort, relative peace, enormous pool but with easy access to the shops, the beach and the rest of the Costa Brava, including the three major Salvador Dali buildings - his house, Gala's 'castle' and the Dali Museum itself. Our beautiful, very spacious, house is set in a discreet development next to beautiful pine woods and directly overlooks the sea. It is one of the largest houses in the development, with living accommodation arranged over three storeys and is of a high quality specification and design. It accommodates up to six people very comfortably indeed. We limit occupancy to six deliberately as we want to keep Maremar beautiful for guests. You will also be thirty seconds from the enormous shared swimming poo...At Maremar we have the best of all worlds - luxury, space, modernity, comfort, relative peace, enormous pool but with easy access to the shops, the beach and the rest of the Costa Brava, including the three major Salvador Dali buildings - his house, Gala's 'castle' and the Dali Museum itself. Our beautiful, very spacious, house is set in a discreet development next to beautiful pine woods and directly overlooks the sea. It is one of the largest houses in the development, with living accommodation arranged over three storeys and is of a high quality specification and design. It accommodates up to six people very comfortably indeed. We limit occupancy to six deliberately as we want to keep Maremar beautiful for guests. You will also be thirty seconds from the enormous shared swimming pool, set in landscaped gardens, with all its delights. The house boasts a very spacious living room with two three-seater sofas, dining area and full width glass doors leading out onto the large terrace and private gardens with their fabulous views along the coast of the Mediterranean and out to sea. There are dining tables accommodating six people comfortably both inside and out, although you will doubtless want to spend most of your time outside. The American kitchen is modern and well equipped. It is especially good for convivial gatherings as the cook is not excluded from what is going on in the living room and beyond. We love to cook and have equipped the kitchen accordingly. We have three double bedrooms... The master bedroom is very large (the full width of the front of the house), with balconies overlooking the sea, the front gardens and the pine woods, and a luxurious en suite bathroom in travertine and marble. The second, to the rear of the house, overlooks the landscaped gardens and the woods. The optional 'rooftop penthouse' double bedroom up on the second floor is virtually as spacious as the master bedroom and has direct access to the rooftop solarium, also looking out to sea. You can choose whether to use this as a bedroom, as another sitting room or, heaven forbid, an office! Finally, we have a twin bedroom, overlooking the gardens with two single beds. This means that the accommodation can be configured to the needs of any six people. So as to maintain the quality of this property, occupancy is strictly limited to six people. All bedrooms have luxury mattresses, duvets and linens that we like to use ourselves. The family bathroom has a bath and shower and there is also a separate downstairs shower room. We believe in 'fluffly' towels and have kitted out the bathrooms accordingly (but please do not use them on the beach!) As mentioned earlier, on the second floor, there is a private solarium where you can sunbathe in seclusion, looking out to sea from time to time and saying hello to the seagulls as they go by. The solarium is off a large space which can either be configured as the 'penthouse' bedroom or as a large chill out area. We have equipped the house for our own use. This means that we use high quality fixtures and fittings such as Bosch, Miele, Hansgrohe, Phillipe Starck etc. All rooms have been individually styled with solid oak flooring and high spec tiling etc. We have two lawned areas, one directly off the terrace and another down some steps, past the ancient olive tree at ground level. So you are spoilt for choice of aspect when it comes to sea and coastal views. At the rear there is a wide gated drive which will take two cars easily. It is flanked by borders containing native flowers, bushes and small trees such as an almond, a fig and a tall cypress (the Catalan symbol of welcome). The communal pool is about 50 metres from the house and is about 20m long and six to eight metres wide (it is an unusual shape!). It is in lovely landscaped gardens with lawns (for sun bathing after a dip) and conifers. We have a 'pool box' which contains beach towels and various pool toys/games which you are welcome to use. If you like to SWIM rather than just splash about in a tiny pool, then this is the place for you! There is also a paddling area to one side of it for tiny tots. Sant Feliu de Guixols is a mere 5 minute drive away or 15 minute stroll through the woods or along the coast road. In the summer months there is also a tourist 'train' which travels along the coast and up to the house, so you can easily get a lift down to the beach or the shops! We have had guests who have decided to base themselves completely at the house, sun bathing, swimming and taking the occasional stroll into town, with the most exciting thing they have done being the walk down some pretty precarious steps to the bottom of the cliff and the beautiful cove below. But if you are more adventurous there are many more things to do and see than you can cram into two or three weeks. You never have to stop! Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: HUTG-004459More

Interaction with guests
We do not live in Sant Feliu but our great friend Carmen, who looks after Maremar for us, does and she loves looking after our guests. We have two websites - one showing you Maremar and the other giving you details of restaurants, places to visit, outdoor activities, things to try etc which is great for planning your holiday. Finally we have a comprehensive guest guide which tells you everything from how to use the (complicated) TV system to where to go in an emergency.

About the neighbourhood
Les Penyes is a group of houses mostly owned by the well-heeled of Barcelona. It is a quiet oasis of calm and green about 1km from the beach and the town (although there are beautiful coves even closer). We have uninterrupted views of the Mediterranean and the coastline - fabulous! the shared pool is enormous and, because many of the neighbours are locals, it can be very quiet at most times of the day and days of the year. The pine forest is to our left, the sea in front and the pool to our right - marvellous!
Getting around
There is no doubt that a car is best if you want to make the best of all of the adventures open to you in Catalunya and this is best advice wherever you choose to stay. There are great bus/coach services to Girona and Barcelona.
