About Malcolm and Linda Cork
We are a retired couple and spend as much time as possible in our lovely Villa which means you may find it 'home from home' with all the essentials you would find in your own home. Though we are very happy of course, to rent out to families and friends during the lovely summer weather in this wonderful region of Spain. The villa is near all the amenities essential for a carefree holiday - good shops, local towns with excellent markets, bars and restaurants and of course, the huge beach within walking distance. The area also boasts unusual regions - rice growing in the valley and views on a good day, of the Pyrennees mountains in the north.
Malcolm and Linda Cork purchased this Villa in 2002
Why Malcolm and Linda Cork chose Pals
The fascinating features near to us in this part of the Costa Brava (means Wild Coast) eg rice fields in the Ter Valley for the wonderful paella dishes, beautiful orchards, cork forests, medieval history of the Moors, sparkling coastal waters. We have a special love of out of season trips, though even in high season, you will not find Kiss-me-quick hats, English pubs, and fish and chips. Just real Catalan local stuff. Or take a trip north to Andorra for a day's skiing and enjoy fabulous scenery en-route. You are an hour or two's driving distance to explore Girona to the west, Perpignan to the north and Barcelona to the south.
What makes this Villa unique
At the villa, you will find every convenience, as this is our home as well as a holiday let. There is central heating for early or late bookings when we accept mid-week bookings to take advantage of cheap flights. So contact us for special discounts for out of season last minute bookings. Excellent local supermarkets open all year round. We only have one holiday home and this is it!
