The Villa was incredible, as well as the stay we had! We will never forget a wonderful time spend with our family while the children were playing in the pool. Delicious BBQ self-made in the awesome garden and wonderful attendance from Catalunya Casas company. They were always there so fast for everything!!!! We will totally repeat next summer! Do not miss this experience!
Nice things have been said in the Catalunya Casa's website reviews about this property and it would be hard to disagree with most of them. However, there are a number of quite important matters someone looking at this villa should really be made aware of in order to make an informed decision before choosing it. These are not evident in the website description and appear to have been ignored by/not of concern to other reviewers. That is with the exception of the last review which went up on Tripadvisor a few days before we were due to leave for our holiday. The reviewer spoke of the fact that you could only access the pool and barbecue via the front door. This was something you could not discern from the clever photography on the website and we were hoping that was not entirely the situation (as it was too late to cancel). Alas, that was exactly the case. The impression we got from the website photos was that the steps from the pool would bring you to the kitchen - but as said, this was clever and not entirely frank photography. Convenience to the kitchen/living room areas from poolside are quite important to us, as I am sure they are to many people.. In this case, not only was access from front door, it was via a rather steep climb mostly on a driveway to and from the pool and could hardly be said to be convenient. It was also disappointing to find the entire pool area is overlooked by not just one house (which appears to be the case in the photos and in Google Earth), but by four houses. One of those houses is still being built (though thankfully not while we were there), another was not occupied while we were there, and the third appears to be use as a storehouse (and just below it, as a bit of a dumping ground with mattresses and other waste material blighting the hillside). Only the fourth was occupied. Overlooking does not mean a private hillside retreat. There are a number of other matters, including many barking dogs at all hours, music from a local venue and a drain smell...........
The negatives were that the accomodation was very basic (1970s) with no mosquito netting or fans/air on which made it uncomfortable to be in. The wifi was restricted by management after 4 days, as they said we'd used the equivalent of 33 HD films in bandwidth (nonsense as we were hardly in).
Access to the pool was only via the front door and walking all the way round which made entertaining difficult.
Good things were the stunning view and the BBQ (paid extra). Management were responsive when the lights didn't work but really should have been checked before we came.
