Enjoying a truly superb location in a designated area of outstanding natural beauty, this family home sits on a low hillside close to both Llafranc (3km) with its sandy beach and tree-lined promenade and pretty Tamariu (also 3km) with its own sandy, crescent shaped cove fringed by a sprinkling of family run fish restaurants.

Set in enclosed grounds of over one acre encompassing lawns, pine forest and a large Roman-stepped swimming pool, this south facing property enjoys the most gorgeous views across meadows and hillsides to the sparkling Mediterranean beyond.

Decorated in a light and airy style with contemporary furnishings and pastel colours, Sa Blava offers one double bedroom, two twin bedrooms, a well equipped kitchen and patio doors leading from the open plan living/dining area onto a spacious covered terrace, an ideal place in which to dine 'al fresco', breath in the fresh pine scented air and enjoy the delightful sea and country views.

On a lower level, a poolside room incorporating shower facilities is a convenient extra for those who wish to relax with a book whilst the children play in the pool or enjoy games of ‘Hide and Seek’ in the forest.

Access to Sa Blava is along an unmade country lane leading off the road that joins the route up to the Sant Sebastian lighthouse. Located next to one of the area’s most respected restaurants, this emblematic local landmark and look-out point is well worth a visit for the beautiful panoramic views that stretch along this picturesque coastline and inland to the distant Pyrenean mountain range.

Various country and coastal walks lead through unspoilt scenery to impressive beauty spots such as the nearby cove of Cala Pedrosa (1.4km), accessed via a steep path and a favourite site for snorkelling.  Further amenities including restaurants, tapas bars, a daily fruit and vegetable market and a locally renowned Sunday market can be found in Palafrugell (2.5km) whilst the fascinating medieval towns of Begur, Pals and Peratallada are all within a 30 minute drive away.
