As always, the stay within the villa is wonderful with a magnificent atmosphere and overall ambience. Everything from location of the house, to the distance to the beach and the nearby collection of various restaurants add the best holiday flair to any visitor. The owner of the villa is also very easy to communicate with, which is very recommendable. Overall...

What a delightful villa in the most fantastic location ! ....We stayed for one week at the end of August 2016 as a family of five. The villa was spacious and clean with everything you need for a family holiday - including essentials like dishwasher, washing machine and plenty of electric fans to cool you in the warm evenings !...

I am delighted you enjoyed your stay - do come again!

We stayed there for a week with our kids and brother in law. Villa Francastella is what one can expect from its name: a family villa. A place where you can go with kids and friends for few days away from home and still to feel at home. The place is well situated and the description is true. We liked...

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...
