We wanted to explore the Massis de les Cadiretes, yet still be able to visit the beach, so this was ideally placed. Tossa de mar was roughly a miles walk away, which for 2 20-somethings wasn't too bad at all. The location meant wonderfully quiet mornings, days on the beach, and a short walk home after a few drinks in the evening. Everything we wanted really. It would be very easy to get to and from the site via taxis or rented cars/scooters/bikes, with it just off the main road into Tossa de mar.
The site itself was beautiful and quiet. We had the pool to ourselves most days and really enjoyed being away from the bustle of central Tossa de mar. The scenery was gorgeous, with wooded mountains as far as the eye could see. It was a great place to retreat to after a day on the busy beach.
Being interested in wildlife, the site held some really gems for us, including golden oriole and hoopoes (give them a Google if your the slighest bit interested in wildlife). The added bonus of a red squirrel seen from our porch was too amazing for words. We were so happy we decided to stay here rather than in town.
The bungalow was nice, clean and pleasant. Only slight fault was the kitchenette didn't include an oven or toaster, but this wasn't a major issue (cereal and pasta/rice fixed that). Some might call the bungalows basic (lacking a tv and interent), but if all you're after is peace, quiet and somewhere to relax and sleep, it is a really good option. Internet is available around the reception area via wi-fi though if you do need to get online.
The staff were really friendly, spoke good english and accomadated us arriving late (due to delays) and leaving really early in the morning to catch our return flight. We really cant speak highly enough of them.
The short walk into Tossa de mar is best done by following the river through Park sa de Riera. The shade of the trees is very welcome, as is the diversity of butterflies and birdsong (including nightingales). The walks into Massis de les Cadiretes are also recommended.
We would highly recommend staying here and if it wasn't for our love of exploring new places, we would certainly return time and again.
