We were late arriving in Tossa de Mar – after midnight – but we were met, driven up to the flat, and shown around in a very friendly manner.
First and continuing impressions were of a modern, well-maintained and excellently equipped apartment. It was clean and provided much more than minimum requirements: for example, there is a choice of pillows as well as bed covers. All crockery, cutlery and glassware is of good quality. There is a (small) kettle and a coffee machine.The electronic equipment is bang up to date, with wifi, internet-enabled TVs (three of them!), PS3 plus a selection of games, DVD player plus some DVDs and CDs, with titles for adults and children. There are more traditional board games for a rainy day.
The view over the town and to the sea from the balcony is lovely. Of course, such a view means a climb to the apartment! First up the quiet road and then up 96 (we counted them!) reasonably well-lit steps (there are timer switches outside the apartment and by the gate at the bottom). Don't try sprinting up!
The swimming pool is shared but we had it to ourselves most of the time. It is deep (about five feet at the shallow end) and big enough to swim properly in. It was clean and in good condition. The shower beside it did not work but was being looked at while we were there.
The balcony is separated from the neighbouring apartment by a divider. A bit of sound from the neighbours came through the wall, and the bus station down below can be busy – but we slept like logs with the blackout curtains and shutters.
Overall, a very comfortable base from which to explore Tossa and the surroundings. Cliff walks towards the south start nearby and the old town is a short walk away. We received excellent advice, promptly, from Sergi while booking. We enjoyed our stay here a lot.
