This smart residence sits resplendently in expansive landscaped grounds adorned with mature olive and pine trees, complemented by a mix of colourful aromatic plants and established lush green shrubbery.  Sweeping lawns unfurl towards and around an enticing private swimming pool, creating a wonderful Mediterranean ambience in what is an enchanting and privileged setting.  It is hard not to be completely seduced by the character and atmosphere of this elegant abode.

The interior décor is understated and all the more exquisite for it; uncluttered, with clean lines and earthy terracotta style floors set against pure white walls.  A large inviting entrance hall leads on one side to three comfortable double bedrooms (one with en-suite facilities) and a single bedroom, all south facing, plus a cloakroom and family bathroom.  The principal bedroom is to be found tucked away on the first floor, boasting an en-suite shower room, a walk-in dressing area and a private sun terrace from where panoramic views and distant vistas to the sea can be enjoyed.  Straight ahead and five steps up from the entrance hall is a magnificent high-ceilinged living/dining area that spills out to the garden as the light pours in.  Keen cooks will appreciate the adjacent, contemporary kitchen that conveniently opens onto a long and spacious covered terrace designed with summer outdoor living in mind.

Villa Margarita is something rather special.  Nestled in the foothills of the Gavarres Mountain range just 1.2km outside the sleepy stone village of Mont-ras this alluring escape is but a stone’s throw away from many beautiful coves and beaches such as Llafranc (6,8km), Calella (6,9km), Tamariu (7,9km) and who will not delight in exploring the endless ancient cork forests that provide the perfect backdrop for this splendid property.

 

  • Whilst there are 5 bedrooms, the accommodation is suitable for a maximum of 8 guests.
  • Guests staying at Villa Margarita have access to the nearby paddle court (a Spanish game similar to tennis but played on a smaller court). This belongs to the local residents’ association. Paddle racquets are provided at the house.
  • Property Licence Number HUTG-023569

Locality

Great Things to Do Near Villa Margarita

Go dolphin spotting!

 Pods of bottle nosed dolphins have been spotted feeding in the bays around Cala Estreta.  You might be lucky enough to witness this amazing spectacle. 
 
 

Visit the pre Roman Iberian settlement on the headland to the left of the El Castell beach.

 Walk among ancient stone walls and enjoy the spectacular views out to the Isles Formigues, where bottle nosed dolphins have often been spotted feeding. 

 

Explore the nearby Cala del Ruso, close to Calella de Palafrugell,

named after the Russian Colonel Woevowsky, who lived there with his aristocratic English wife, Dorothy Webster.  Together they built the Botanical Gardens and small Castle at Cap Roig and used to swim daily at the cala.
 

Scenic greenway between Palamós and Palafrugell

Follow this 6 kilometre stretch of scenic greenway, which is ideal for both walkers and bikers.  Mountain bikers will love the many opportunities to deviate into the forest which hugs the spectacular coastline here.   

 

Drive to Begur and climb up to the castle from where there are far reaching views.


The most noteworthy are those towards the Medes Islands, long ago a refuge for pirates and smugglers, although today they are famous as a marine nature reserve.
 

Take a stroll beneath the arched ‘Voltes’

situated along the front of Port bo beach in Calella de Palafrugell.  Enjoy a drink or evening meal at one of the seafront restaurants and watch the twinkling lights of the fishing boats out in the bay and the spectacle of the brightly lit cruise ships gliding silently across the horizon.

 

Peratallada


 the name of this delightful village is derived from ‘pedra tallada’, meaning carved stone.  The moat which encircles parts of this fortified medieval settlement provides the stone from which most of the ancient buildings are constructed.  As you stroll around, take note of the many properties which have been lovingly restored to their former glory.
 

Explore the medieval village of Pals

 which can be seen perched on the hillside from miles around.  Wander around the old town, El Pedró. One of the main features to see is the magnificent circular Romanesque Tower, the Torre de les Hores, which is all that is left of the castle that used to guard the estuary of the river Daró.   From the viewpoint you can see the Medes Islands, the Montgrí and Canigó massifs and the Albera mountain ranges.
 

See this stunning coastline from a boat

You can hire your own or take an excursion.  Llafranc boats: Tel 972 61 15 48.  Open daily May-September 09.00-20.00.  www.llafrancboats.com or email: info@llafrancboats.com. The boat trip heads northwards to Aigua Xelida, where you transfer to an inflatable boat and enter into the amazing creeks and caves of this dramatic coastline.  Afterwards there is time to swim and snorkel around the rocks before heading back to Llafranc. The trip takes about 2 hours.
 

Go diving

 Triton Diving Llafranc has been operating since 1979.  Contact details: tel: 00 34 972 30 30 20, email: diving@tritonllafranc.com; www.tritonllafranc.com, for up to date information on prices, courses available and where and when the next dive takes place.

 

Visit the Museu de la Pesca in Palamos,

  the only one of its kind in the Mediterranean with a permanent exhibition linked to the seafaring tradition of the Costa Brava depicting the past, present and future of fishing.  www.museudelapesca.org.

 

Take a walk around the City walls of Girona.

 Start at the end near the Church of Sant Feliu.  You can stop at various points if you wish to descend.  There are some spectacular views of the city of Girona and to the Pyrenees beyond.  Also, visit The Jewish Quarter (El Call), which is one of the best preserved Jewish ghettos in Europe.  The Jews lived here for over 600 years before they were forced out in the 15th Century by the Spanish Monarchy.  You get a real feeling of its colourful history as you stroll around the narrow alleys.
 

Go for a day trip to Figueres and visit the Teatre-Museu Dalí in Figueres

 and enjoy the wacky experience, which will appeal to all members of the family.  It is a lot of fun and well worth braving the queues!  Afterwards, pay a visit to the lesser known Museu del Joguet de Catalunya (toy museum), also in Figueres. Tel: 972 504 585
 

Walk amongst the vineyards of the Celler Can Sais in Vall Llobrega.

 It is a small, family run bodega dating back to the 17th century.  The total distance is 6 kilometres and you do not need to ask for permission.  At the end you can taste and purchase the wines.
 

Visit the Tuesday morning market in Palamós


  – where you can select wonderful, fresh produce or shop for bargains amongst the many stalls. Take a wander around the cobbled back streets of the town before heading back for a leisurely lunch and a siesta by the pool!
 

Visit Barcelona

 
Take advantage of the frequent train service from Blanes into the centre of this vibrant city.  An ideal way to see as much as possible in one day is to take the open top buses and hop on and off as you wish. 

 

Walk amongst all the different exotic Mediterranean flora and fauna

at the Botanical Gardens of Cap Roig where you get magnificent panoramic views of the coastline that stretches from Calella to the cliffs of Cap Roig.
 

Spend the evening in Tamariu,


  a favourite with local fishermen, whose colourful artisan boats provide the perfect backdrop for the handful of excellent restaurants that adorn the picturesque seafront promenade.  Evening is a truly Mediterranean experience as the mediterraneus (so named by the Romans) laps gently on the shoreline.

 

Visit the thermal baths and golf course at Caldes de Malavella.

The Balneario Vichy Catalan is just outside the town situated in pine grove.  www.balneariovichycatalan.com. Or play a round of golf at the nearby prestigious PGA 18 hole course, which is easily accessible. Tel: 972 472 577. 
 

Spend some time exploring the Gala Dalí Castle in the village of Púbol,

 latterly the home of the painter’s wife.  On display inside are the paintings and drawings that Salvador Dalí gave to Gala, along with a collection of her haute couture dresses. The garden is decorated with a series of sculptures and elephants! Open daily, from June to September, from 10.00 to 18.00, but closed on Mondays outside of these dates.   Tel: (00 34) 972 488 655.
