Located just 1.5km from the beautiful beach of Calella de Palafrugell, this charming villa is situated in a peaceful and tranquil area, perfect for switching off and relaxing. Guests will feel at home as soon as they walk into this characterful villa; with a traditional Mediterranean feel, it is easy to fully immerse yourself into the Spanish culture here at Casa Avellana. This four-bedroom property sleeps up to eight guests comfortably, making it an ideal choice for a family, friends or multiple couples travelling together and wanting to experience what the beautiful Costa Brava has to offer.

Built on two levels, guests will be impressed upon walking into the large entry hall. While the villa has been recently restored, it retains many of its original features that make it so unique. Rustic terracotta flooring features throughout, as well as charming beamed ceilings, arched ceilings and stone walls. Guests will find a spacious living/dining room where the family can get together and spend some quality time. There is also a spacious fitted kitchen, with French doors that lead directly out to the beautiful gardens. On the ground floor, guests will also find a spacious bedroom with an en suite bathroom and direct access to the pretty gardens via French doors. Upstairs are two further double bedrooms, also with their own en suite bathrooms, as well as a bedroom with twin beds that would be ideal for children. There is also an independent bathroom. Each of the spacious bedrooms and bathrooms have been finished to a high standard, featuring high ceilings, unique furnishings and charming shutters.

Outside, stepping stones lead from the house to the sparkling blue pool. Surrounded by greenery and large trees that provide privacy, guests will feel like the only people on earth at Casa Avellana. Grab a sun lounger and soak up the sun with a good book while the kids splash about in the pool or play in the garden! There are also several chill-out terraces, including a fantastic dining area and a barbecue; guests can prepare and enjoy delicious alfresco meals together while the sun goes down. The peaceful surroundings, charming interiors and incredible facilities make this villa the perfect spot for a memorable family holiday. Just a short drive from the very popular Calella de Palafrugell and Llafranc coastal towns and within easy reach of some of the most beautiful calas and beaches in the area, there is no better base to explore the wonders of this magical region.

Casa Avellana is located in one of the most desirable areas in the Costa Brava, just a short drive from the charming town of Palafrugell and fifteen minutes from the famous beaches of Calella de Palafrugell, Llafranc and Tamariu to name a few. The nearest shops and amenities are just a five-minute drive away, and the nearest airport is Girona-Costa Brava Airport (46 km).

Calella de Palafrugell and Llafranc, which are just a ten-minute drive from the villa, are bigger towns with lots of small beaches and calas to explore. The cobbled streets, shops and delicious restaurants along the coastline means you can go back and back again. Tamariu, a fifteen-minute drive, is the most charming small village, featuring quaint white little houses surrounding a calm cala with virtually no waves, so ideal for the little ones.

There are many other prestigious calas and beaches just a twenty-minute drive away, such as Sa Riera, Aiguafreda, Sa Tuna, Platja Fonda, Fornells and Aiguablava. Guests can snorkel to their hearts’ content, or hire a boat and explore some of the nearby coves. There are also plenty of lovely restaurants to choose from, where guests can enjoy delicious seafood and potter about the charming village shops.

That being said, Costa Brava is not just about the beaches! We strongly recommend visiting some of the inland towns which are just picture perfect: Peratallada, a fifteen-minute drive away, known for its beautiful old stone buildings, rutted stone streets and passageways, and Begur, a twenty-minute drive away. Famous for its cobbled streets, boutique shops and proximity to some of the prestigious calas, Begur is overflowing with Spanish charm. There are of course the ruins of the Castell de Begur which makes for an interesting hike. Begur is conveniently located within a slew of local Spanish towns and villages giving families and explorers plenty of things to do.

Further afield there are many other gems to be explored like Tossa del Mar, forty minutes away, and Cadaques, just over an hour away.  Barcelona is located just over an hour away, and Girona just forty minutes by car. With plenty of interesting thing to do and places to see, guests will be spoilt for choice at Casa Avellana!

Best Suited For: All Ages

Casa Avellana is brilliantly set up for children; the twin bedroom is ideal for kids, and the large pool will provide hours of splash-filled fun. Calella de Palafrugell beach is just a stone’s throw away, where there are a range of restaurants and cafes, as well as various boating excursions on offer, where guests can visit the nearby coves and snorkel in the crystal clear waters.

If guests fancy a change of scenery, the stunning beaches of Aiguafreda, Sa Riera and Sa Tuna are located close by. For the water babies, it is a great spot for diving, and there are a few dive centres to be found in the area. Alternatively, the local water-park, Platja d’Aro, would also go down a treat with the kids!

For art lovers, Salvador Gala Dalí Castle House is around 30km away in Púbol, and in Figueres (58km) you can visit the Dalí Museum. A little further away in Céret, is the Museum of Modern Art (Musée d’Art Moderne) where you can see the works of Matisse and Picasso.

Begur Castle is also well worth a visit for children; In 1607 the castle’s owners sold the rights to the town. During the 20th century restoration work was undertaken, and this means that what you see today has had delicate work done to it. This work has also enabled people with limited mobility and wheelchairs to visit the castle.

Another gorgeous Costa Brava town, Palafrugell, is only 7km away, where apart from seeing the town and its lovely beaches, you can also go to the colourful Sunday morning market, or the daily market. Palafrugell also has quite a few good deli shops, plus Lidl and Carrefour, so it can be a good place to get stocked up, for those of you who are planning to rent an apartment or villa.
