Those seeking a comfortable holiday base within easy reach of amenities will find Casa Mimoseta an excellent choice. Situated off the back road between the picturesque bay of Aigua Blava and the delightful fishing village of Tamariu, it is just 950m downhill to the curved sandy beach, seafront restaurants and bars of Tamariu itself.

This charming home boasts a spacious split level living/dining room with high, beamed ceilings and patio doors opening onto a large sun terrace. The pool is surrounded by lawn and thoughtfully placed in a private corner of the screened garden. Children can be easily supervised whilst parents relax on the terrace or use the adjacent barbecue to cook some of the wonderful fresh produce found in nearby Palafrugell market. The terrace, pool and garden face south and hence enjoy sunshine all day long.

This part of the Costa Catalana has been designated an 'area of outstanding natural beauty' and as such it is home to many secret coves sheltered by picturesque pine clad slopes. Family friendly sandy beaches are plentiful with Sa Tuna, Sa Riera, Aigua Blava and Pals all within easy distance. Dotted around the countryside, medieval hilltop towns such as Begur (6km), Pals (10km) or Peratallada (16km) are rich in both history and atmosphere and are all fascinating places to explore.
