Villa Botanica is modern, comfortable and beautiful - sitting integrated into its quiet rural surroundings, there are excellent panoramic views from the terrace over the garden and private pool to the rolling countryside beyond.

With four bedrooms and three bathrooms, the property is split over three floors with a twin bedroom on the lower ground floor with an en-suite shower room. A dual aspect open-plan living space with kitchen, dining room and modern and comfortable lounge, with leather suite and dining room table and chairs, leads onto a lovely covered dining terrace. On the ground floor there are two bedrooms (one double, one twin) and an additional shower room. There is a master suite on the upper floor with a double bed and large en-suite bathroom with a separate shower, and its own terrace* - ideal for a spot of quiet relaxed reading whilst taking in the countryside views.

Externally, there is a split level garden with two sets of steps leading down to the swimming pool, with lovely views over the countryside. The location in El Golfet is peaceful and tranquil despite being situated in the bustling fishing town of Calella de Palafrugell.

Located in El Golfet, this villa is just 550m from the nearest sandy beach, the very photogenic El Golfet cove, 750m from the Cap Roig Botanical Gardens and 1.3km from Calella de Palafrugell with its restaurants and bars and Blue Flag beach. There are great restaurants for dining out. Ideal for those keen on walking, the Sendero Mediterraneo GR-92 route is almost on the doorstep, whilst other shorter routes including several PR-C routes form a web of interlinked walks in the local area. The villa would also appeal to those keen on cycling - it is located 90m above sea level, so there would be a climb back to the villa from any direction.

We love the tranquil location of this villa, the uninterrupted countryside views and scenic walks so close by.

*Please note, young children are not allowed on the terrace due to the step up and horizontal railings.

Typical day-by-day itinerary

Day 1 – Arrive in El Golfet

Settle in to your villa near the fishing village of Calella de Palafrugell and perhaps take a stroll into the pretty beachside town and sit at a local bar or restaurant and watch the sunset.

Our local representative will agree a time to brief you on the area and the local activities, go through the maps and route directions with you and kit you out with your bikes.

Days 2-7 Flexible itinerary

We provide optional suggestions for every day of your stay, with a good mix of walking and cycling. With so much to discover in the local area we leave it to you to decide how you want to explore.

Maybe stroll into Calella de Palafrugell along the GR-92 route, enjoy a relaxing lunch looking out over the sea at Llafranc or the clifftop Sant Sebastia lighthouse. Another day you might want to explore the local area by bike or head to Cap Roig’s fabulous botanical gardens and castle.

There’s a coastal route to the seaside town of Palamos, or you could drive out to mediaeval Pals to do a circular walk taking in a well-known local viewing point.

Venture further afield to historic Girona, where you can walk the city walls, soak up the atmosphere of Placa de la Independencia, visit the impressive cathedral and walk along the river Onya with its pretty bridges and houses. Or maybe head to the Dali Museum in Figueres. Alternatively, just enjoy the pool at the villa or head down to the local beaches at El Golfet and Calella.
