Imagine being in a modern, spacious, air conditioned, apartment with balcony views of the marina and within a five minute stroll of the beach... And because it's not in a holiday development, the neighbours are not so noisy, care more about their surroundings and aren't so inclined to use the pool - leaving more time and space for you. You can walk to the market every day for the freshest fruit, vegetables, meat and, of course, fish. That's when you are not going for an early morning kayak, dive or swim... Sant Feliu de Guixols is one of the nicest and best small towns on the Costa Brava. It is not a holiday resort, but a living Catalan town with the culture, the Catalan lifestyle, the shops and restaurants so admired by well-healed visitors from Barcelona.

You can walk to the market every day for the freshest fruit, vegetables, meat and, of course, fish. That's when you are not going for an early morning kayak, dive or swim... Sant Feliu de Guixols is one of the nicest and best small towns on the Costa Brava. It is not a holiday resort, but a living Catalan town with the culture, the Catalan lifestyle, the shops and restaurants so admired by well-healed visitors from Barcelona. But, of course, the beach is beautiful, the bay stunning and the facilities for visitors second to none. Marona is a spacious apartment in a residential block within walking distance of Sant Feliu de Guixols, the Marina, the beach and the whole of Sant Feliu. But because it is not in the centre of town, it provides a wonderful haven at the end of a busy day. It is on the first floor of the two storey block and can be accessed by stairs or lift. It is not in a 'holiday block' and therefore we are looking for guests who want a great, convivial time, but not a riotous one! By the same token, this means that, although very central, you are unlikely to be disturbed by many marauding holidaymakers despite being so close to the action. Marona boasts a excellent living area (21 square metres) with a dining table that can accommodate six, two three seater sofas and an enormous French window off to a spacious balcony with views across the Marina to the left and the hills to the right. We have recently acquired an electric 'plancha' or barbecue grill wich is ideal for use on the balcony without running the risk of upsetting the neighbours! It has two spacious bedrooms, one with a double bed and the other which can either be a twin or a very comfy double, and ample storage. The master bedroom also has a large en suite bathroom. There is also a family bathroom with shower. The very well equipped kitchen is more spacious than most, with a breakfast table which can accommodate four cosily, the usual mod cons and a dishwasher. Off the kitchen is a utility room with washing machine. The air conditioning and heating are quiet and efficient so Marona is ready for your visit at any time of year. The wifi is high speed and unlimited. The only thing we deliberately do not have is a TV because we are encouraging you to talk to each other and have fun together! Underneath the block you have your own indoor parking space and access to the 12m swimming pool which forms the central space of the block. You can stroll to the Sant Feliu beach in five minutes or wander along the coast the other way until you get to Platja Sant Pol which is the haunt of wealthy French and Spanish Riviera types (!). Sant feliu is teeming with things to do and places to see. If you like hiking or biking, sant feliu is ideal. If you want to explore Catalunya, what a base and if you are here for a rest then that's fine too! Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: HUTG-006582More

About the neighbourhood
With a view over the beautiful Saint Feliu de Guixols Marina and within strolling distance of the beach, the water sports, the shops and the restaurants, this apartment is ideal for people who want an easy holiday - close enough to the action, but not too close. But this is a residential complex so you don't get the mayhem that is possible with a resort complex or an apartment right in the centre of town - you get the best of both worlds. We are literally three minutes from the Marina, five from the beach and 10 from all of the shops and restaurants you could wish for, including the fabulous Sunday market. But if you want to explore further afield, with its own secure parking space and easy access to places like Girona, Barcelona, Empuries, Figueres, Cadaques etc, it is great for ...
Getting around
You can easily walk to everywhere within Sant Feliu and a little beyond. We even have a trolley bag in case you want to get your fresh fruit and veg and fish from the daily market. But if you want to explore further afield, and we would highly recommend it, you really do need a car.
