Villa Mediterranea is located on the Costa Brava, near Blanes, just 64 kilometers (40 miles) north of Barcelona (just under 1 hour by car). Excellent train service and good roads put all of Spain and southern France within easy reach. This spectacular 5,000 square foot villa was built in 1994. All of its rooms are air-conditioned and heated. The villa is set in a hillside pine grove, in a community of twelve homes with 24-hour security. Residents may use the clubhouse and facilities, including an Olympic-sized pool, tennis courts, and a restaurant on the beach. This beach is one of the more quiet and secluded on the Costa Brava.
All rooms in the villa have sea views, double-glazed windows with screens, and the entire house is tastefully decorated with quality furnishings. Divided into four separate suites, this villa is ideal for groups of family or friends who wish to spend time together and also desire some privacy.
