This is my family's third visit to Simon's villa on the beach in Cadaques. As always the three generations had a good time. The location is great, and we love both the villa and Cadaques. Others have mentioned noise from the bar, and from the recycling bins, but for us the location of the villa and its facilities more than make up for these inconveniences. Both the owner and his proxies in Cadaques were extremely helpful.
Excellent for family gathering
The Villa Rubia is a very nice and comfortable house centrally placed in Cadaques. We were a family of 8, including two small children (age 1 1/2 and 3 1/2) + 6 adults and it functioned excellent.
We spent two weeks in the first part of July and spent most of our time outdoors. The beach in front of the house was more than fine enough for the small ones, so we spent a lot of time there. Some of us went walking or jogging to the lighthouse about 3 1/2 km out, where there is an excellent, pebbly remote beach worth visiting! Visit to the Dali house in Port Llieggat, which is in walking distance (you MUST book online!) and the Dali Museum in Figureres is a must!
At arrival (late arrival) we had a nice, well functioning agreement wth the house owner, and it was easy to find. There is only one parking (garage) but there is free parking about 1 km walk to the southeast. It was sometimes difficult to find room in the afternoon, however when the "crowds" left, there was always room if you waited until early evening.
The house is well equipped, aslo with a crib and 3 chairs for small children. Specially the kitchen was well equiped with a big fridge, nice , big stove, etc. We loved the outdooor place downstairs with room for everyone to be seated. From the owner we got an excellent advice which we used several nights: the next door restaurant (MUT) was willing to serve us the best tapas in town (to our opinion) in our garden! Since we had the two small ones, this was an excelllent arrangement for us. We had our own plates, etc and wines and they came with the food!
There are fans which was needed for the rather warm nights, and it funcitoned well for us.
The only minus (which was balanced by the excellent location) was the noise at nights. The renovation of the very nearby "dumping" came every morning at 5ish... , and a couple of nights French youngsters, who obviously were partying at the beach, kept us awake. It was a bit strange that the police did not remove them as police frequently patrolled the streets during days and evenings.
In total, this is a place and a house we would love to come back to, we had en excellent holiday in Villa Rubia in all respects.
I’ve been to Cadaques several times, as a child with my parents caravaning, at hostal with my husband.
This time I went with my big family, 6 adults and 4 children. The house was perfekt, very close to the water suitable for the children.
Lot’s of bedrooms, toilets and showers.
The kitchen was perfect for cooking.
Very close to everything in Cadaques!
We’ll come back in a close future!
Great location lot of space
Impressive view beach and terrace
A wonderful house in the perfect location.
We were a party of 6 adults and 4 children and this house was perfect for us. Spacious and perfectly adequately equipped, it provided us with a comfortable base in a delightful town.
Lovely old house right on the water.
Sit in the enclosed balcony and look at at the square below, and the sea. We were a group of friends who had a good week at this house. Bars, cafes and restaurants are all within walking distance, and there are some nice walks with lovely views at the end of them including Port LLigat, for a tour of Dali's summer house. What a treat, but you need to book ahead (24 hours in our case, but 3 weeks ahead in high season). We decided against a car, and arranged our own transport from and to the airport at Girona. Don't look for taxis - the tourist information office told us there are none, but in season there is a land train, which goes to Port LLigat and the cape in high season.
Depending on how you read the description, this house has 3 or 4 bathrooms - when we stayed there were only 2, although a 3rd was under construction, and the entrance hall had just been replastered when we arrived. Plenty of room to spread out if there are a lot of you. Agent very helpful, and left key under mat because we were arriving late.
This beutifull house is situated on coast of Spain, at 1 hour from Girona and almost 2 hours from Barcelona.
It is very close by Dali's Museum in the historical town Cadaques where Dali was born. A lot of famous painters lived in this town like Miro and Dali.
Golf: There are Golf courses within 45 minutes driving from the house.
Ski: It's possible to ski in Andorra or spain about 2.5 hours driving.
