A great base for exploring the more 'authentic' parts of the Costa Brava, although peak season traffic and narrow windy roads, beautiful but tiny coves etc didn't always make for stress-free travel and parking. The villa itself is comfortable, well cared for and well equipped. A great music, DVDs and games collection kept us all entertained when we weren't out and about. The nearest access to the sea is about a 10-15 minute walk downhill along one of those windy roads, and is not sandy, but pebbles and a concrete deck area. There are other small coves nearby, best accessed on foot via a beautiful coastal path (there is road access, but car parking is limited and they are popular). The big sandy beach is about 15 min drive north) So in short, walking to a beach is not that easy, especially if you had small children. The villa itself is about 15 mins drive from Begur, so eating out in the evening always meant a driver (there is a restaurant at local cove, but didn't suit all our tastes), hence the knowledge of music and games collection as on some evenings we either ate in or came back early to make sure the driver didn't miss out too much on the wine!!
Villa Pollo is a beautiful house which we had the pleasure of staying in for our summer holiday this year. We are a family of 6 and the villa provided us with very spacious, clean and comfortable surroundings; in addition, the villa has an authentic Spanish feel to it which was a real bonus.
The swimming pool was very large ( much more so than we anticipated from the photographs) and we enjoyed using it every day. It was always tranquil with only a few guests from the other villas using the pool from time to time (we ended up having dinner in the next door villa one evening after chatting at the pool!).
We also made the most of our time exploring the surrounding area. Having never been to this part of Spain before, we were happy to discover such a scenic area with beautiful small coves and beaches with clear turquoise sea, all within a short drive from the villa.
We enjoyed visiting Begur, a lovely hilltop town nearby. There is a great Spanish atmosphere and a wide array of restaurants to choose from.
Peter was really helpful, giving us an insight into the surrounding area and lots of useful information before we arrived. We would have loved more time to explore this beautiful region so we hope to return to Villa Pollo to do this in the future- it is a superb place to stay and we would certainly recommend it!
We had a really nice 2 weeks in this Villa. It is spacious, well-equipped and clean and is in a quiet location. Air -con in the main bedroom and the lounge was very helpful for those very hot days and nights! We had the good-sized pool mainly to ourselves. The surrounding area is beautiful - very hilly. You will definitely need a car as the road to Begur isn't pedestrian friendly being quite narrow and windy. Begur is a lovely old town - relatively quiet by day but very busy of an evening. There are lots of places to eat in Begur and the surrounding towns and also plenty of supermarkets. We used the Spar in Begur and also the larger Esclat in Palafrugell. There is so much to see in this area. The Villa is a great base. Equally though Aguiafreda - a 10/15 minute walk - is beautiful with clear blue water. Quite stunning. We spent many days by the water there and also walked around to Sa Tuna, a really pretty little village with some nice restaurants and a beach. Peter was extremely helpful prior to the holiday with helpful tips and advice. We very much hope to return as its such a pretty area with so much to do.
Villa Pollo is a fantastic house near the sea. The villa is well furnished with airco in the main rooms. It has a big pool with a nice terrace. Sitting at the terrace of the house or the balcony, you have a nice view over the sea.
The house is situated a couple of kilometers outside Begur in the urbanization Acquafreda. From the villa you can walk to the sea. Also in the neighborhood there is the Vintage Hotel, with a spectacular open-air restaurant with a nice view over the Acquafreda Bay.
Begur is an authentic old town with nice shops and restaurants. The coast is very nice to visit the little bays. Just a few kilometers landward there a some nice old villages like Pals and Bisbal. We have enjoyed the hills to cycle there.
We have been two weeks at Villa Pollo. The complete and well cleaned house, the swimming pool, the surrounding and the variety of activities in the neighborhood would be a reason to return to Villa Pollo next year.
Last but not least we will thank Nuria. She gave us a warm welcome after a long ride from Holland. One time we had a little problem with the washing machine, but this was solved immediately.
Nous avons passé un très bon séjour.
La maison est très agréable, et particulièrement bien équipée (avec une belle collection de DVD, CD et livres-en anglais-).
La piscine est spacieuse et le fait qu'elle soit commune à d'autres maisons n'est pas du tout un problème.
Les paysages sont superbes et avec peu de grosses constructions.
On peut se baigner tout près de la maison, avec possibilité de faire de la plongée et du snorkeling.
Par contre, avec de jeunes enfants c'est plus compliqué: les criques les plus proches ne sont pas adaptées (rochers, galets, ou au mieux gravier avec forte pente). Il faut faire entre 15 et 25 km pour trouver de belles plages de sable, en acceptant les difficultés pour se garer et la promiscuité sur la plage.
La région est très touristique, il y a énormément de monde en août, c'est notre seul bémol car pour le reste tout est parfait, les propriétaires sont charmants et attentionnés.
We had a wonderful stay at Villa Pollo! The villa is relatively easy to find and the location is excellent. It's very near the beautiful towns and beaches of Sa Riera, Sa Tuna and Aiguafreda. Whether you go via foot on the coastal paths (be prepared for some serious hiking and breathtaking views) or via the road (you really need a car to make the most of your stay in this area) you can explore a different beach every day. The natural beauty of this part of Spain is unbelievable and the location of this villa helps you make the most of it.
The villa itself is very clean, comfortable and well appointed. The pictures and descriptions on the site are all very accurate. We are a family of five (with three teenage boys) and we felt very much at home. We really appreciated the wonderful, eclectic CD and DVD collection and we enjoyed our downtime on both patios and at the shared pool (most of the time we were the only ones there).
I can't say enough about the charming town of Begur (just a few kilometers away, about a 10 minute drive). The restaurants there and in the surrounding area were wonderful. We especially enjoyed Sa Rascassa and Can Torrades. For lunch, you can't beat the view and great food on the patio of the Vintage Hotel, just walking distance down the street from the villa.
Many thanks to Vanessa, the owner of Villa Pollo. She provided personal service from the logistics of securing the rental via email to her excellent advice on how to make the most of our stay. Also, the local caretaker, Nuria, was very pleasant to deal with and very helpful.
Overall, a great place for a great vacation. We look forward to returning!
