Our simple, homely holiday house is a great place to relax, go to the pool, visit the many and varied local beaches and walk the scenic coastal footpaths. You can also enjoy the lovely ancient towns and villages of the Baix Empordá region - the most beautiful part of the Costa Brava. The house sleeps 5 and has its own parking space in a secure (and out-of-the-sun!) car park under the building. It's less than an hour's drive from Gerona airport and about two hours from Barcelona and Perpignan.
Other things to note
The Pool:- The communal pool opposite the house is very nice. It's big (like a good size public pool) because it's shared by the houses and flats around. The pool is surrounded by a grass lawn and there are open-air showers. There's always some shade because there are trees. It's a gated pool, and each 'member' flat has a key. It's usually quite empty in the morning and evening. Even in the afternoon when it is at its busiest, it's very pleasant and we've never found it to be overcrowded.
- Smoking on the terrace is fine!
- Please make sure the shutters and windows are secure, as they can swing and bang in the breeze.
I am friendly, peaceful and have great respect for personal privacy. I am absolutely against all kinds of prejudice and discrimination. In my professional life I am a cultural anthropologist, working in the field of health, medicine and care. I get along well with nearly everyone, love meeting new people and I am naturally quite talkative in both the languages I speak well (English and Spanish) and also the one I speak less well but love - French. I have travelled quite a bit in my life, having spent a lot of time in Latin America, Spain and France. My favourite holiday/travel places have been Argentina (all of it!), Venezuela (Caribbean coast and Margarita), South Africa (everywhere I've been so far), France (especially the Charente), Spain (especially Asturias, Menorca, Jaén, Gerona, Sevilla, el prineo aragonés, Parque Natural Garrotxa), Cyprus (Trodos mountains), England (the East Anglian coast), Wales (Dysynni Valley), Scotland (Glasgow, the West Highlands and the Hebridean Islands), Ireland (Belfast, County Fermanagh, Carlingford Lough), Portugal (Lisboa, Sintra, O Minho), Australia (Queensland). Countries I'm NOT planning on visiting again any time soon - Brazil, Mozambique. Places I haven't enjoyed - Giant's Causeway, Moustiers Ste. Marie, Salvador de Bahia, Emporia Brava, Ciudad Guyana) My main interests? Music (I play guitar and sing), photography (main subjects are weather phenomena), walking, cooking, gardening (I grow flowers, fruit and vegetables), politics, football (I follow Ipswich Town and go to all the home games).
