We are an outgoing family of four and this will be our first exchange. We live in the lively city of Girona and we have a charming property in the heart of the Costa Brava, one of the most picturesque seaside areas of Spain.

Platja d'Aro is a beautiful village by the sea, it boasts an amazing 6-kilometer beach of impeccable white sand and pristine water. This is one of the few beaches in Europe which is awarded an A+ certification year after year. Our cozy, 3-bedroom property is located 1 min away on foot from this stunning beach.

Our property is a stone's throw from the city center yet in a secluded area dotted with pinetrees. You will be able to enjoy a well-deserved siesta in the shade in our patio before heading to one of the beautiful villages nearby, taking a stroll along the promenade or while you prepare to shop in one of the trendiest shopping districts of Spain, which is just a few steps away from your door.

Platja d'Aro has it all: secluded coves, picturesque views, exciting nightlife and upscale shops and restaurants. Besides, it is located within minutes by car from the old-cobbled streets of Girona; Cadaqués, hometown to artist Salvador Dalí; close to the white-washed houses of Calella de Palafrugell, and just an hour drive from Barcelona. All these places are within easy-reach by car or bus, the central bus station being a few meters away from our centrally located home.

The house itself has 3 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and one lavatory. A fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, refrigerator, gas stove, large oven, microwave and washing machine. The highlight of the property being its private patio complete with loungers, bbq and dining facilities where you can relax while you plan your day's trip or nighttime escapade. The location, literally a few meters away from the beach and the city center, yet in a private and quiet area, cannot be beaten. Weather you are considering our property as a base to explore the surroundings or are looking forward to a relaxing vacation, you will surely find our home welcoming.

We are positive you will enjoy your days here just as much as we do.

We are currently restyling the property: buying new furniture and redecorating a bit, so you'll find everything to be brand new.
