Family from Rugby , United Kingdom August 2019

The communication during booking & whilst at the villa was very good & efficient. The location was as expected as we were aware that we needed a car to get around, but be warned it really is up some very steep hills. The villa appeared as in the pictures. We booked the villa as a party of 8 & yet there were only 4 sun loungers & 6 chairs around the outside table. There were nails protruding around the far side of the decking around the pool & the basketball ring & dart board had no ball or darts to use. There were no bath mats, the bed sheets barely covered the beds, only 1 flat pillow per person, & we had to buy our own tea towels. All of these minor things aside, we had a comfortable & enjoyable stay.

Family from Camberley, United Kingdom July 2019

Fabulous villa. Lots of space - far bigger than we expected & very well equipped. Really needs air con upstairs, the bedrooms and play room up stairs were unbearably hot! The house would benefit from a user manual containing info on how to use washing machine, hob, where local facilities are etc

Loved the pool, house etc Had thought it was walking distance from sa tuna but actually location is further south than pin on advert shows meaning the need to drive to the beach. The region is fantastic...3 weeks next time!

Large group from Balbriggan, Ireland July 2019

We booked this Villa as a large family group, 17 of us, all parents with kids (from 3 to 16). Firstly, the letting agent were excellent to deal with. We were due to get the keys at 5pm, but they helped us out and we got the keys at midday. From start to finish we had no hassle from them When we got to the villa we were delighted with how big and spacious it was. Huge bedroom, big communal spaces, huge garden etc. With 17 of us, we were worried we might get a bit claustrophobic, but no such worried. We had ample space for all the adults and kids. There are a lot of warnings about being 'quiet and respect the neighbours' we are all 'older' adults so we weren't having parties etc, but on the 2nd night 5 Police arrived to advise if to keep the noise down. I can be very sure we we were not making much noise, just chatting in the garden about 11pm (we have young kids in the party). i actually think they just used it as a way to check out who was staying there etc - but just be sure you are not booking this expecting to be having pool parties all night!!! The police were fine and we had no other visits, but it did unnerve us a bit. The location is fine, it's 15 mins straight walk to the main marina area and a couple of nice beaches. There a bigger beach is 20-25 mins as it's the far side of the marina. There's a lidl and another large supermarket within 3 minutes in a car, 10 min walk. I would recommend a car as initially you will be buying heavy items like water (and maybe beer :-) but it's an easy flat walk around the area. The wifi was perfect, all the kids streaming movies and you tube, adults streaming Love Island :-( - all with no issues etc. The pool was fine, the filter was a bit dodgey initially, but we never even noticed and it was fixed as soon as the handyman came and noticed. I've done the Villa thing now 5 times and this was by far the best. But overall, i'm a bit worried about telling everyone how great the experience was in this villa , in case I drive the price up and I can't get it next year!!!!

Diverse Catalonia is one of the most popular regions in Spain.

From the coastal resorts of the Costa Brava to the Roman remains of Girona Province, Catalonia doesn't just cater to one type of holidaymaker.

Barcelona is the capital of Catalonia and one of the most vibrant cities in the world with its art scene, colourful culture and world-famous cuisine. Its metropolitan atmosphere and urban beach Barceloneta makes it the perfect place for a sunny city break, while the pedestrian street of Las Ramblas running through the centre of the city, is one of the most busy boulevards in the world. Barcelona's old town is steeped in ancient history, with its Moorish and Gothic architecture, narrow winding alleys and town gem, Barcelona Cathedral. Art and culture lovers will enjoy the Picasso Museum bringing to life the artist career of one of the world's most famous and inspirational painters, as well as Gaudi's magnificent unfinished Roman Catholic church Sagrada Família.

As one of Catalonia's hidden gems, this northeastern province is home to pretty peach fields and tranquil mountain valleys, including Valle de Boi, where lies the only national park in Catalonia, Aigüestortes i Estany de Sant Maurici. Don't leave without visiting Lipica Stud Farm, one of the oldest stud farms in the world, dating back to 1580!
