Apartment was ideal for our family (2 adults, 2 kids, 9 and 13). Easy for kids to jump into pool and us to keep an eye on them from apartment. Perfect little terrace at front of apartment to eat breakfast/dinner. Kids bedroom was quite hot at night so we put the downstairs fan in their room which made it more comfortable for them. Nice beaches very close by (Platja de Pals and I'Illa Roja), but a bit of a steep walk down 100 steps (kids counted them) that were quite strenuous on the way back up, especially in the heat. Luckily you could jump straight into the pool to cool down. The water at the beaches was beautifully clear and grat for snorkelling and fish spotting. Pals and Begur lovely day trips to charming, medieval old towns and of course a few days visiting Barcelona are a must. (Book tickets to Parc Guell and Sagrada Familia in advance!!! or you might not get in!). Calella de Palafrugell was also charming. Very friendly Spanish neighbours and mostly quiet Dutch families and some English in the complex. Parking was fine in the day but sometimes when we came home late from a day trip there were no spaces so we had to be creative. Supermarkets about 20 min walk away or 10 mins by (quite steep) bike-ride. Overall we had a very relaxed holiday.
