Villa Escondite

Villa -
3 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 6
L'Escala, Costa Brava, Province of Girona, Catalonia
Escondite or 'The Hideaway' is a traditional style 3 bedroom villa, situated in the El Pedró area of L´Escala within 5 minutes walk of both the beach and the old Town. The villa´s proximity to the beaches and the old town with good amenities (including a large supermarket within 400 metres walk) mean it is not absolutely essential to have a car for this location.

The house is ideal for families and couples as it is located in a quiet, much sought after residential area on the edge of the old town. This is where the wealthy of L´Escala built their large town houses with gardens to escape the old town, where there is precious little space for a garden.

The villa is split over two floors. Downstairs the entrance hall leads to the Lounge dinner, up the stairs towards the bedrooms and to a separate cloakroom / WC. The large Lounge...

An excellent family size 3 bedroom villa, in a pleasant location with all the amenities you need to have for a relaxing and pretty stress free time. For what was a small fishing village originally l'Escala is quite large and varied with some good restaurants,...More

Good location, clean and well equipped, with parking space. First class Manager, Jonathan Orr met us and showed us everything we needed. Slight problem with light bulbs was fixed immediately. My only criticism is-too many trees in the garden!

About the neighborhood
L'Escala is a small fishing town (famous for the best anchovies in the Mediterranean) to the north east of Catalunya on the southern edge of the Bay of Rosas, surrounded by sandy beaches. The Greeks and Romans both created their first settlements on the Spanish peninsula here in L'Escala at Empuries and for that reason the Olympic flame was landed here during the Barcelona Olympics in 1992.

Nowadays the area is a place the middle class Catalans would really like to keep as a secret for themselves, but independent holiday makers are starting to discover its charm. L'Escala is a truly wonderful place to stay with beautiful sandy beaches, shallow water and craggy outcrops providing lots of interesting places to explore and inlets to snorkel.
