El Port de la Selva, Costa Brava, Province of Girona, Catalonia
Villa Serena is located just five minutes' walk from the village Selva de Mar, one of Catalunya's best kept secrets . Quiet and peaceful, yet only twenty minutes's walk from typical Mediterranean small coves and few more from El Port de la Selva. The villa has easy access to all amenities, including many nice bars and restaurants for tapas and eating out.Villa Serena offers short stays in a cool, relaxing atmosphere. It benefits from several attractive terraces with stunning views: sea, natural park and Dali's heaven. With three double (one within an independant bungalow, one with a private terrace) and one twin bedroom, the villa is ideal for families and friends to share few days or a cosy week, with plenty in the surrounding area to see and do during your stay.

4 of us stayed in the Villa in June. It is located in a nice small town La Selva de Mar, away from a more touristic El Port de la Selva. Villa is spacious and well equipped. Terraces are gorgeous, beautiful views! If you like walking, this is a great place to stay: you can walk to the beach, to...

Management response:

This is a quite well equiped house with tasteful furniture and houseware, a very big area to meet and dine and three large/very large bedrooms and a smaller one. Sights are wonderful. You can have both the sea and mountain views from the house. We enjoyed it very much, even though it was winter and we could not enjoy being...

Villa Serena-Bella Vista is an ideal getaway destination. There were only two of us yet this holiday retreat is one that can comfortably cater to many more. It is spacious and comfortable, with more terraces and patio areas than anyone could begin to benefit from in a short week. Villa Serena is ideally situated away from the heavily touristed El...

About the neighborhood
You have many things to do in one week. So take care not to forget a slow attitude reading your last best seller or an old philosophical treatise on the terrace in order to develop your famous, old project about how to change the world .<BR><BR>Mountains and sea, sunny and sometimes windy, all together is the mix that inspired S. Dali whereas it gives to Villa Serena a very pure atmosphere surrounded by singing birds in a green setting with few neighbouring villas. <BR>Villa Serena is a great place for snorkelling, diving, windsurfing, sailing, canoe kayak, hiking, bike riding, tennis, eating, drinking, night clubbing... Climbing up to the impressive Monastery of San Pere de Rodes at 5 km is a nice alternative (either walking, biking or driving). <BR><BR>In... more
