With several beaches, pool, fantastic snorkelling, golf and local medieval towns nearby, there is something for everyone. The villa is built in the Catalan style with white plaster walls, and doors and window frames/shutters of varnished pine. It is equipped throughout to a high standard. It sleeps 8 comfortably and has space to relax, within the house, on the large covered terrace, or on the lawn in its garden. It has a pleasant view and overlooks the gardens and pool of the Sa Punta restaurant, rated one of the finest in the region. The house is surrounded by scented pines and the immediate vicinity comprises an abundance of green in which there are other detached houses set off quiet roads with little traffic. In summer most meals will be taken outdoors on the large covered terrace, which has a built-in BBQ. Playa de Pals is a small resort set in the most beautiful part of the Costa Brava between Barcelona and the French border. It is mainly composed of villas set around a village centre, in which can be found the typical facilities of a beach resort. The beach is sandy and extends for a considerable distance, while there are a number of additional smaller beaches in sandy coves within a short walk or drive. There are two magnificent golf courses nearby, and all sorts of water sports are available. Pals itself is an unspoilt medieval walled town, a must for any visitor. Inland, the countryside consists mostly of wooded hills, with a view to the distant Pyrenees. Local vineyards produce both wine and cava; it's great fun to taste before buying! Playa de Pals is a summer resort. In early Spring and in Autumn many shops and restaurants are closed, though a good number of each remain open. Our low-season prices reflect this. If in low season the nights should be cold, the house can be heated with a combination of log fire, gas heater and electric heaters. The bedrooms comprise an en-suite master bedroom with king-sized double bed, a second bedroom with queen-sized double bed, a third bedroom with two beds that can be used either as two single or one double, and a fourth bedroom will two single beds. They all have duvets and pillows. Please note that sheets and towels are not included but may, if you wish, be hired at a cost of €15 per person. A child's cot may also be hired for the same price. Opposite, there is the large pool of Sa Punta restaurant. Please note that the pool is reserved for customers. If you make a point of making yourself customers by taking a meal there and then taking drinks by the pool whenever you go, you may at the restaurant's discretion be able to swim. This is usually no problem. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: HUTG348More

About the neighbourhood
In this part of the Costa Brava the landscape is typically composed of pine-covered hills descending to the sea where there are many protected and sandy beaches, and with a view to the distant Pyrenees. The choice of beaches close by is so great that one can choose a different beach every day.Particular favourites are the former fishing villages of Sa Riera (a twenty-minute walk round the rocks), Callella and Llafranc (20 minutes' drive). Pals itself is a beautiful and unspoiled medieval walled town, a must for any visitor, offering the opportunity of a stroll through pedestrianised streets to see the spectacular views from the bell tower, before relaxing in one of its many bars and restaurants. There are other attractive towns nearby, such as medieval Peratallada or the graeco-roman runs...
Getting around
A car is recommended, as there are many places and beaches to visit. Cars can be parked in the house's own drive. There are regular buses from Playa de Pals to those wishing to visit Pals or other local towns. In the house you will find contact details of the local taxi service should you wish to use this.
