Where is our home?

  EMPURIABRAVA : AN EXCEPTIONALLY APPEALING SITE
 


Generous sunshine in all seasons, lots of activities...

The house is situated at Empuriabrava, a kind of water paradise on Earth called "the Mediterranean perl", also known as the "Spanish Venice". Empuriabrava is the greatest marina in Europe with over 5000 mooring points, close to 36km of canals and two huge beaches of golden sand. The house is served by the first canal (less than 10 minutes from the sea by boat) and is only 500m away from beaches (5 minutes walk).

The site benefits of a true micro-climate with important sunshine and an exceptional sky clearness, due to Pyrenean altitude winds which litteraly clean up the clouds.

What's more, Ampuriabrava, downwind of sea storms within the Gulf of Rosas, is barely 4 miles from the spectacular sites of the Cap de Creus Natural Reserve, one of the most beautiful protected coastal regions of the Costa Brava and Spain. It is forming a very broken coastline with its high cliffs, wind-beaten islands and eroded rock reefs, beautiful panorama, hidden coves with transparent water that can only be accessed by sea.

At the south of the Gulf of Rosas, there are also the Medas Islands, considered to be a place of extraordinary biological and ecological value because of the large variety of species and surroundings that are of scientific interest. Sea beds are strictly preserved, a true paradise for divers swimming amongst groupers and other fishes.

Empuriabrava (or Ampuriabrava) is both a quiet and dynamic seaside city. Activities are plentiful: many sea sports, a famous sky diving center, kite surfing spots, aquatic park Aquabrava, bowling, golf, mini-golfs, horse riding, karting, tennis, restaurants, lively places and nightclubs. Roses is only a short drive away with its small typical alleys full of lively restaurants at night. Though, Empuriabrava is still a magic place where you can really take your time and enjoy your holidays, without the stress of overcrowded tourist cities, without the traffic jams to get to the sea and with no known parking difficulties...

Places of cultural interest are also numerous. We would particularly advice you to visit the museum of Salvador Dali in Figueres; the San Pere de Rodes Monastery, a stunning eagle nest with a breathtaking view on the Pyrenees and the sea; Cadaqués, charming fisherman's village inspiring Dali and other famous painters; the Empuries Ruins, landing point of the Greek civilisation when they arrived on the Iberian Peninsula more than 2,500 years ago (this is also a nice opportunity to walk along the seashore for one mile), or also medieval towns of Castello d'Empuriés and Peralada. Finally Empuriabrava is surrounded by two natural reserves (Aiguamolls), i.e. 4,000 hectares of wetland, to be visited by feet or bike in order to discover very uniques flora and fauna. This spot is in particular a vast sanctuary for various migratory birds (330 species) such as storks who nest there during the course of the seasons. Winter itself has its own appeal, with the sun being always present and ski resorts in little more than one hour drive, including Vallter 2000, La Molina and Masella.

Gerona Airport (Girona) (GRO) is only at 60km. It is well served several times per day by low cost airlines (Ryanair and Transavia) from several destinations in Europe. Bus transfer is provided from Gerona Airport 3 times a day. Taxi and rental vehicules are also available.

VISITORS SECTION
 

Michael,
June 2009

"I rented a lot of holiday villas during the last decades, and yours was simply the best. It started with the detailed guest book, which you forwarded in advance. Then the house  and the outdoor facilities were perfectly clean and ready to move in. We found all technical devices in good order, even a pressure washer for cleaning the boat was available."

"We spent a very relaxed week in your villa. Everything was in good order, all devices worked perfectly. We enjoyed sitting on the terrace downstairs as well as in the patio upstairs. For breakfast we used the kitchen upstairs, although we didn’t cook any meals at all. There are enough restaurants around. It was very comfortable to have a boat parked at the house and it took 10 minutes only to get to the open sea. On the other hand, it takes only 3 minutes to the airport by car." (Michael arrived in Empuria with his own plane landing on the local airport - see pictures below)

"We had so much fun that we are sure to repeat this excursion next year and would be glad to rent your villa again."

"Kind regards from Germany"

  BOOKING CONDITIONS
 

The house renting is directly handled by the landowner; it is not subject to any single agency or intermediary fees. Pricelist on the website is subject to modification without notice, although prices are firm and definitive as long as they are on the rental contract.

After checking the period availability in the above schedule (always maintained up to date), your booking request should be transmitted by e-mail, with mention of the following information:

  • Fullname of the person responsible for the rent, who will sign the lease,
  • mail address,
  • e-mail address to be used,
  • cellphone number,
  • total number of inoccupants (adults, children, babies),
  • wished period dates (from saturday to saturday, except on exception, with a minimum of 5 consecutive days and only in low season),
  • presence of animals, boats and other piece of information asked or communicated to the landowner.

This request is to be confirmed by e-mail by the landowner within a day, along with the rental contract project (in French only). The requester should then print, sign, scan and send it back preferably by e-mail (else by fax). When the landowner receives the signed lease, the requester benefits from a 3-day option, period for which the landowner would not accept any other reservation for the same dates and the requester should make a down-payment of 30% of rental fees by bank transfer as stated in the contract.

The booking is considered definitive when the contract is signed and the down payment made. In the event the transfer is not received within 5 days, the contract is considered cancelled and the reserved period is set back free to the landowner.

We advice requesters to act with great reactivity at the moment of sending request, contract and down payment. It is usual that an available period is subject to several simultaneous requests, the landowner being commited to respect a first in first served order.

It is offered to the tenant an optional canceling insurance contract, for an amount of 4% of rental fees, to be purchased within 10 days after the lease is signed. This contract is not managed by the landowner but directly by an Insurance Company. If subscribed, a copy of the insurance statement is to be communicated to the landowner.

The tenant receives then a guest book which describes the house hardware equipment, and suggests activities or main sites to visit in the region.

A 1,000€ deposit is required from the tenant. Also are required concierge & cleaning fees including pool maintenance (195€) and, if needed, repairment or replacement expenses for missing or damaged equipment on the exiting inventory. Electricity is to be added on the forfait basis of 15€ per day, from April 1st to October 31st, 20€ per day from November 1st to March 31st.

The final settlement (rest of rental fees, additional expenses and deposit) is due no later than one month before the begining of the stay. In the case of late reservations, booked less than 29 days before the beginning of the stay, the invoice is due completely on the day of the reservation. The confirmation of the contract is therefore subject to the full payment reception. In the instance of no payment of the remaining amount or of the full amount in case of late reservations, the landowner shall consider himself as discharged of any commitment and will not have to reimburse any paid amount. The landowner is not commited to fullfilling any special requests unless he has explicitly confirmed his acceptation in writting.

The coordinates of our concierge, in charge of welcoming the tenant are to be sent after full payment. The tenant needs to make a direct appointment with him for his arrival.

At the begining of the stay, an entering inventory is set and signed by both the tenant and the concierge. When leaving, keys are restituted and the inventory is controled. If no significant damage or loss is stated, the deposit is reimbursed completely to the tenant, within a month delay. For this transfer, the tenant should communicate his bank details, displaying Bank name, IBAN and SWIFT/BIC numbers.
