    echt een gemis vonden wij het ontbreken van airco's. Voor de rest perfect. alle keren dat we contact hadden hier in Nederland en ook in Spanje, meer dan 100% tevreden met Villamar. Als ik weer een huis zou huren in Spanje, 100% zeker bij jullie.

    superbe villa espagnole spacieuse et accueillante située en hauteur il y a de fait un vent qui permet de supporter la chaleur de l'Espagne. 30 min de loret del mar 1h de Barcelone mais retiré au calme . piscine très agréable et terrasse sympa même si le vent le soir nous empêche de manger a l’extérieure. petit bémol la literie de certaine chambre est légèrement inconfortable mais rien de catastrophique je retournerais avec grand plaisir dans cette location ou nous avons passé des vacances plus que charmantes ps ajouter le wifi et ce sera parfait

    A very nice house for families with children. Great space outside to play and the pool is surrounded by a fence. Good to know that the pool goes from 1 m to 2 m, so small children needs to be watched. You will need a car to get around and to go shopping. Bring washing powder, dish tablets and other stuff you need. In the afternoon a pretty strong breeze starts. If it is hot it is very nice, but otherwise it can get a bit chilly. The overall impression is very good. Nice enclosed house with parking for three cars, three large bathrooms, washing machine, grill and many more. The madresses is a bit hard, that's the only downside.

    C'est notre 3ème séjour à la villa Paris et nous sommes toujours enchantés. C'est idéal pour les familles avec enfants : la place de jeux extérieur, la taille de la piscine pour nager et jouer : le top. Les enfants peuvent jouer dehors en toute sécurité avec la piscine entienrement entourée de barrières avec une porte qui ferme à clé. Le BBQ très bien: espacé de la terrasse ce qui évite d'être enfumé. On peut garer 3 voitures à l'intérieur en toute sécurité. Les chambres sont spacieuses et pour tous les goûts. A chaque séjour on constate des améliorations. Du matériel changé comme certains appareils électroménagers. On passe d'excellents moments dans cette villa et de bons souvenirs pour les enfants.

    Nous avons passé d'excelentes vacances, votre service est de qualité et la maison 'PARIS' est un excelente villa. Cependant, il y a un manque d'éclairage extérieur qui rend difficile de manger dehors le soir, on y voit plus rien, ce qui est très dommage. Sinon le reste était parfait!

    Omwille van het grote aantal huurders dat op hetzelfde moment de sleutel van zijn huisje moet komen afhalen aan jullie ontvangstkantoor te Vidreres, is de wachtrij daar echt véél te lang. Dit is voor mij het enige minpunt van jullie service. Eens binnen waren we wel vlot geholpen. Zeer mooie villa die goed uitgerust voorzien is en vooral over een prachtig zwembad beschikt! Dit zwembad is een echte aanrader en was zeer zuiver. Echter door de ligging van de villa op een heuvel hadden wij elke namiddag last van een forse wind die van de kust kwam waaien. Verbeteringspunt voor het slaapcomfort is een kleine inspanning te doen door de eigenaars en nieuwe stevige matrassen te plaatsen in plaats van aftandse veren matrassen, dit zou het slaapcomfort fel verhogen.

Description

Your villa near Macanet de la Selva

Space and privacy are the magic words to describe the detached villa Paris. A wonderful holiday residence with many nice spots where you can really experience that holiday feeling. Paris is located in a quiet cul-de-sac. Upon arrival you can easily park your car on the plot. The entrance of villa Paris is located on the first floor, where you can also find the living room. Besides that, this floor has three bedrooms, a bathroom and a wonderful open and spacious kitchen, that is fitted with all modern conveniences. The interior is functional and has a snug feeling to it. On the ground floor you can find another three bedrooms with two bathrooms nearby. From two of these bedrooms you have direct access to the balcony, where you have a beautiful view of the green hills. Once you have set a foot outside, the real holiday experience can start. A wonderful covered veranda creates the ideal lounge spot, where every drink will taste that much better. Whether it’s your first cup of coffee, your first or last drink, it will do you good. The main showpiece of holiday villa Paris is of course the private swimming pool. Safely fenced off and located in a wonderful green field, it is the ideal place to cool off or just simply lay out in the sun at the side of your own swimming pool. The garden is very nice and has a little playground for the children and has a stone barbecue. This residence is very suitable for several families, because of the space and the privacy it offers.

The surroundings of your villa

Outside Paris you can find the beach only 24 kilometres away. From the wonderfully quiet neighbourhood of Mas Altaba you can quickly get to the wonderful sandy beaches of Blanes. A nice seaside resort, that is separated in two parts. One part is the touristic hotspot with nice shops, restaurants and a snug boulevard. The other part stations the night life. Thus, it is a place where everybody can find something to do. But a nice town, like Vidreres, is also worth visiting. It is a typical Catalan town where not many tourists can be found and you can really mingle in with the Spanish locals. It has a nice church in the centre that is surrounded with shops. Another bit further you can find the snug and lively Lloret de Mar. Lloret de Mar is a lively place where you can of course enjoy the night life or entertain yourself in the nice streets with restaurants and shops. But there is also a lot to do for the more active holiday-maker, like golf courses, a big water park, a dolfinarium, riding schools and sports centres. You won’t have to be bored a single day. And at the end of the day you can always return to your own holiday villa Paris, where you can look back on your day on the veranda. You can make this holiday your own by booking this villa easily and quickly online at Club Villamar.

Unfortunately groups of youngsters (average age below or equal to 25) are not allowed in this holiday residence.
