About our home

Why We Love Our Home
It is, literally, steps away from the beach.
Centrally located, yet quiet and secluded, Siesta in a hammock in the shade of pine trees.
2 double bedrooms and one single; 2 and a half bathrooms. There is a master with a queen bed and ensuite. One bedroom with two twins and one third bedroom with a twin bed. Newly remodelled with the latest design materials and a luxurious flair.

Our beloved beach house has been completely remodelled in 2018. Lluís is an architect and the renovation has been planned and executed with utmost care and attention to detail to maximize the space and to make it as functional and comfortable as possible. Only the highest standard materials have been used throughout and we are very happy with the outcome! We hope you will like it too ;-)

We have a new (small) pool (July and August) outdoor shower, bbq, sitting area, hammock... a cosy haven in the shade of the pine trees.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This beach house has been thought and designed for us to enjoy as a family. It isn't a rental home or an Airbnb. We prefer to exchange with families of 4, max 5, or couples. Because of its characteristics, we cannot accept groups of friends. We also reserve the right to cancel the exchange if the number of people staying increases after agreeing the swap.

Location, location, location!
We are located one block from the beach, in a quiet residential area a stone’s throw to the bustly town center. The sea promenade runs parallel to our home, so we are very central but also in a very relaxing little corner of the town. You won’t need to see anyone unless you want to.

“Costa Brava” means daring coast and this is exactly what it looks like. White stretches of beaches interrupted by rugged cliffs and tiny coves, all within walking distance from our place.

There is underfloor heating for comfort in the cooler months but we are lucky because the sun shines here 320 days a year and there is plenty to see in the area all year round.

The bus station is at the end of our street so within less than 80 minutes you can be in the center of Barcelona, 30 minutes and you are in Girona. There are also direct connections to the two main airports in our area (Girona and Bcn-El Prat). From Girona the high-speed train takes you to Madrid in less than 4 hours and to the heart of Paris in 6. We are so well located you can do a lot of sightseeing without even hiring a car.

We have completed 13 successful exchanges, are respectful of other people's homes and expect ours to be treated with the same care and respect. We will be happy to hear from you!

POINT SWAPS REQUESTS: minimum 10 night stay and 35€ per stay per person. This is our second residence, which means that we either need to drive there or hire someone who can prep the house. Thanks for your understanding.
