We've decided to start including videos of the villas we offer. Most of the videos you will see below were taken by me (Charlie) with my little digital camera. Admittedly the quality is very poor and I hope to substitute these short films with more professional and longer movies in the near future. Still, these movies ought to give you an idea of general feel of a property, the location, the views, the garden, the birdsong...
This is literally a walk through the Casadevall villa, from the wisteria strewn 5-car parking lot and garage, through the front door, through the living room, out to the lovely pool area, and then back in again. There is a longer version of this video I can send you a link to if you are interested. I took this video after a long weekend staying here with many friends and they all agreed that the garden/pool/bbq dining area were the best outdoors area of any of the houses they had stayed in.

El Casal is on the edge of a very abrupt hillside, so steep it almost feels like a cliff (but it isn't) and the northwesterly views of the not-so distant Pyrenees are nothing short of spectacular. The pool and the outdoor terrarce reached from the kitchen and living room are orientated towards this views, and more than anything, the view is what makes this house so special.

El Molí de la Vila
I've often been told that El Moli is one of those best-kept secrets sort-of houses. No video can hope to show the romantic beauty of this spot, of the gorgeous old stone millhouse, like something from a fairytale. But I stood by the natural swimming pool backing the house and did a 360º turnabout with my digital camera, Ana, the owner, hiding behind some bushes so as not to be filmed, and voilá ...!

Casanova de Ferrando
I took four short movies of the garden here and still only managed to cover one corner of this huge house - the corner of the house where you have access to the fenced pool, the outdoor barbecue and dining area under high pergolas dripping with wisteria and wild jasmin, and the front of the house, the beautifully kept lawn, surrounded by a large private garden and tree nursery. Casanova is breaking records for occupancy in our website. A quick glimpse of these movies might give you an idea why.

Mas Grau is probably the house I have been most proud of presenting and for the longest time, since 1997, one of the first owners to trust me to represent her house when I was just getting starting. I know I haven't let her down. Getting bookings for an incredible house like this and at these prices (only €2520/week in high-season and €1785/week in low-season!) is easy. Here we are, family and friends and barking dog, enjoying a swim in late September, 2011. My friends were so impressed with this house that they have rented it for a family reunion for summer 2012!

I talk a lot about the panoramic views at Cal Micos, and I am very happy to finally have these two short movies that give an idea of what I mean! The views are splendid, the well-kept garden and pool most inviting, and now the new outdoor bbq dining room shed is just icing on the cake.

This video is taken from one of the 5 lovely terraces at Can Tapies. As you can see, the views are limitless, taking in the wide expanse of the Costa Brava plain, hemmed-in only by the low-Pyrenees to the north on the border with France. The various outdoor sitting areas are evident, as is the gorgeous pool, set in a large olive grove. The whole feel of it is perfect, charming beyond words! And that is just what everyone says when they write in to me after their holiday here!
