“Many excellent features but nearby railway line very noisy”
Reviewed September 2, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The villa was lovely and very conveniently located for supermarket, beach, town centre and v nice local restaurant and cafe. Also walking distance, even with suitcase, from station.
House had a great roof terrace and was well equipped and comfy-beds and sofas.

On the downside, it was quite expensive and the fittings were not quite 5 star, eg slightly scratchy polycotton sheets, thin towels and old style showers. All were adequate for the purpose though and didn't spoil our stay, just not 'luxury'. Also a bit skimpy on the amount of toilet roll left to 'greet us'!

The biggest problem however was the proximity of the main Barcelona railway line to the front of the house with trains between 4.45am and midnight and track maintenance on some nights in between. This made the front bedrooms too noisy with the windows open and too hot with them shut. OK if you are a heavy sleeper or use earplugs.

Otherwise everything else was lovely, staff at Casas Catalunya v helpful and quick to respond to queries.

Hi Sarah! Thank you for your kind words and comments. As an agency that specialises in family villa rentals in Catalonia (Barcelona, Costa Brava and Costa Dorada) we take your feedback and suggestions very seriously and continually aim to improve our services.

Each of our vacation rentals is hand chosen and selected based on strict standards of quality. This villa is indeed very comfortable (we will most definitely revise the sheets and towels for replacement) but your comments about the noise from the train worries us. The train line runs along the front of the beach and as the villa is located just a couple hundred meters away, passing trains (once per hour) can be heard in the distance but as we have not had comments about this in previous summers we have investigated this issue further. The trains do not run after midnight or before 6am but we have confirmed that they were doing track maintenance during your stay so we apologise for this unavoidable inconvenience. While the main floor of the villa has air conditioning, based on your comments (as well as the exceptionally hot 2015 summer we experienced) we are investigating with the owner the possibilities of replacing the bedroom fans with airconditioning as well.

We look forward to welcoming you again soon to this beautiful area!

Kind regards,

The Catalunya Casas Team!

Bonjour Henri! Nous vous remercions pour vos commentaires. Nous prenons vos commentaires et suggestions très sérieusement et nous visons à améliorer nos services continuellement.

Le train passe une fois par heure de 6h à 23h. Nous étudions l'installation de climatisation pour les chambres de sorte que la fenêtre ne doit pas ouvert pendant le sommeil.

Chacune de nos locations de vacances sont choisis et sélectionnés sur la base des normes strictes de qualité.

Nous sommes impatients de vous accueillir bientôt dans cette belle région!

Cordialement,

L'équipe de Catalunya Casas!
