One of three beautiful coastal enclaves tucked away on the picturesque northeastern coast of Catalunya, the other two being Llafranc and Calella de Palafrugell, Tamariu embodies what all of us think a truly Mediterranean fishing village should be. Finding a property that is within walking distance of such a delightful location is something that we constantly strive for, and it was therefore with delight that we discovered Casa Bici just 700m from the golden sands of its crescent-shaped bay.

This is a welcoming, well-appointed home at the end of a smart terrace of contemporary architectural design. It is stylised, urban, and chic.  A split-level, open-plan living area flows effortlessly through to an open-tread staircase leading up to the first floor, where we find a double bedroom, two twin bedrooms, a family bathroom, a master bedroom with en-suite facilities, and a spacious sundeck that looks down onto the swimming pool below.

Adjacent to the pool is a large covered terrace that provides shade from the lunchtime sun and is the perfect place to grill on the barbecue or enjoy fun-filled family table tennis tournaments.

A typical day here might consist of an early 10 minute saunter downhill for a refreshing dip in the turquoise waters that gently lap onto Tamariu’s sandy beach before picking up some freshly baked rolls and croissants for breakfast by the pool. Lunchtime may be enjoyed with a barbecue followed by a gentle siesta and a delve between the covers of the latest unread novel. The evening will most likely be spent strolling along the seafront, soaking up the bustling family atmosphere, before sitting down to some fine dining on the terrace of one of the local family-run restaurants. Finally, back to the villa for a nighttime splash in the pool under a starry Costa Brava sky.
