The Villa
Stacks Image 1337
The [manuki mas] is a newly renovated villa and a great holiday destination which caters many needs. Located in a quiet village only 7 minutes by car from Palamós, our guests can enjoy the calm surrounding of the property, quickly access the nearby beach or the urban life of the close cities. Lounging at the pool with a spectacular view to the sea is just as nice as enjoying the modern fully equipped house.

The villa is located in the village of Vall-Llobrega which stretches across a series of hills around a small village center with a couple restaurants, a bakery, a bar, a church etc. Unlike other houses in the area, this villa is not far off the village center and can be reached by foot in a short time or by car in less than a minute. Yet as it is located on the hill slope, walking to the house is a bit uphill ;-)

The next town is Palamós, in about 6 km distance. It can easily be reached by car or bicycle. The town has a picturesque city center by the harbor and a beach strip with bars, restaurants etc. Also it offers a sports Marina and a broad cultural program (ranging from modern dance performances to free daily sports classes on the beach), especially in the summer months.

The area of the Costa Brava offers broad recreational and cultural activities which can all be easily reached by car. From the modern art centers of Cadaques and Figueras over the medieval townships of Ullastret and Peratallada to Nightlife destinations like Playa d'Aro or even Barcelona, all is at your disposal while you can enjoy the view and quietness by your private pool with a great seaview if you prefer to stay home or return from your adventure trips.

Why we chose Palamos and the Costa Brava
The property has been in the family since it was built in 1972. After 40+ years we figured it would be time for a substantial upgrade and also renters wishes changed over time. So we decided for a full re-modeling of the villa during the year 2015 which includes everything from insulation modernization to floorplan-changes and addition of a private pool. Starting in 2016 this "brand new" stunning villa will be more comfortable than ever for even nicer vacations than the ones we had already.
What makes this villa unique?
There is something for everybody here. Obviously in the summer there is the pool, the cozy beaches, at times the rough coast and everything you can imagine in terms of summer activities. Off season the weather is mostly very nice and walking, cycling and a cultural program make it worthwhile to go visit. In addition to what the region has to offer, the [manuki mas] villa was designed with care to detail and with much love as a beautiful vacation home.

About your hosts
We are a small family and have spent many summers in the villa at the CostaBrava. Some of the beaches still look the same as back in the 70s because the government did not allow any buildings in the nature reserves. We love the coast and all there is to do, so the villa really means a lot to us. We live and work in Germany so unfortunately we cannot be there all year...
Important Note on the remodeling process
The villa has undergone a complete re-modeling and re-furnishing, started in early 2015. In order to upgrade the villa to modern rental standards we have undergone major works which include complete floorplan changes, structural work, new electricity, thermal insulation and the addition of a private infinity-pool with a spectacular water cascade. Works were complete as of May 2016, so the villa was ready for renters in June 2016.

We made sure that the house truly delivers all you can expect by it's description - and more ;-) Everyone involved in this project (owners, architect, contractors, banks and friends) is excited about the final result and we worked hard to build this outstanding holiday rental villa for our guests.
