Experience the Cadaques known to locals by staying in Villa Santa Maria, just a few minutes’ stroll from the centre of the Costa Brava’s most vibrant and historic town.
Built as a shooting lodge in 1949, the house is beautifully restored and set in its own gardens of olives and pine trees overlooking one of the most spectacular and unspoiled bays in the Mediterranean. Its unique location offers tranquility, seclusion and shade during the summer months and just a few minutes’ walk to the beaches, restaurants and bars.
Its large terrace and saltwater pool boast wonderful views across the bay towards the town and the 18th-century baroque church of Santa Maria. In summer you can laze in the sun by the pool or read a book in the shade of the bougainvillea. In spring, walk the coastal path to the lighthouse through the wild lavender and honeysuckle or sit with a newspaper in one of the many cafes on the beach. In winter, curl up by the fire and just chill.
