Working from home has its perks…

Long term winter rentals in North-East Spain for retirees looking for some winter sun, professionals that are able to work from home or those that want the freedom to come and go whenever they wish and enjoy superb hiking, biking, golf and skiing right on your doorstep.

Casa Cal Domino and the view from the pool. Just 3.5 km from the blue-flagged beaches of the Mediterranean Sea.

From mid-October to the end of March, Casa Cal Domino is now taking long-term reservations with up to 75% off summer list prices. The summer and the beach scene are over and the Costa Brava returns to a sleepy region full of medieval villages and street markets. Casa Cal Domino is a 4 bedroom private Villa sleeping 8 people located in the Gavarres Massif and overlooking the 10th Century village of Calonge and its castle. The Villa boasts a heated (April to November) infinity pool, heated exterior hot tub (all year) and Sauna (all year), 3 bathrooms, 2 lounges and modern open-plan kitchen.

During the winter months, the nights are cold and the days are warm and sunny, but with full natural gas central heating, double glazing throughout and thick winter duvets, you’ll be warm and comfortable in your home-away-from-home. The days are generally clear with blue skies and little to no wind which is why over a dozen professional cycling teams are based here and call this region their home . But it’s not just the smooth roads and little traffic that attracts visitors here, this region is famous for its coastal and low Pyrenees hiking and mountain biking trails and with half-a-dozen international standard golf courses within 30 km of the Villa, you’ll not be bored. Close to the Villa, we have the bustling fishing port of Palamós and fish market and the more comercial town of Platja d’Aro for all of your shopping needs. Just 30 minutes away and you are in the historic Roman walled city of Girona (with international airport) or 90 minutes away by car (38 minutes by AVE train) you have Barcelona right on your doorstep. For those that are looking for some more bargains, try Roca Outlet Village with all of the famous fashion brand names plus hiking and mountain outlet shops.

Fast Broadband WIFI in the Villa and gardens.

For those that are lucky enough to be retired and want a second home in the sun without the year round costs, worry, maintenence and taxes attached, Casa Cal Domino will tick all of your boxes. For those lucky enough to be able to work from home, we offer a dedicated office space and super-fast broadband WIFI throughout, or just come and go whenever you wish with the Villa and your peronal effects safely looked after in your absence.

Come and hike and bike the low Pyrenees
Play the PGA Catalunya

Want to come and go ? No problem ! We offer a concierge service. We can arrange for the Villa to be fully cleaned and fresh sheets and duvets on the beds for just €200 per visit. We can arrange restaurant reservations for you, turn the central heating on and off and maintain the Jacuzzi for you whenever you are not staying at the Villa. Make use of the cheap flights to Girona and Barcelona and come and go as you wish… it’s your home-away-from-home.

Road cycle training
Hike the Cami de Ronda coastal path.

Invite the family down for Christmas and enjoy our modern, fully-equipped kitchen and have Christmas lunch on the terrace. Invite friends and colleagues down for the weekends and play the PGA Catalunya amongst others or just hike or MB the Gavarres Massif (a 38,000 Ha protected greenspace) whenever you want, accessed directly from the front door. Invite the family, nieces and nephews down for half term and get some winter sun and vitim D and some long lazy luches right by the water’s edge.

Well trained and non aggressive dog are welcome.

We accept well behaved dogs and you can walk them in the Gavarres Massif accessed directly from the front door. No need to get in the car and drive them to a green space.

Ski the high Pyrenees with slopes just 90 minutes away by car.

Why spend a fortune on ski accommodation only to find huge queues and mediocre snow conditions. Casa Cal Domino has over half a dozen resorts from just 90 minutes away by car. Let’s face it, you can reserve the entire Villa for 3 months December to March for the same price as a one week family ski holiday in the Alps ! Ski mid-week and there’ll be no queues and wait for a fresh drop of snow and you’ll be one of the first to enjoy the powder. For the rest of the time, enjoy the sunshine, hike, bike and golf in the cheapest country in western Europe with the longest life expectancy.

See our website for more information and book your stay at CCD. Prices are just €510 per week plus utility bills (gas, water, electricity) with a minimum rental period of 4 weeks. The price includes full private use of the villa and it’s amenities (pool, sauna, hot-tub), CCTV, coded video entrance system, large safe for all of your electrical devices (laptops, cameras, etc) and the Villa is fully alarmed. Pool and house towels are included along with bed linen and welcome pack. Logs for the fireplace can be arranged at extra cost and all taxes are included.

    Hello Nigel,

    I hope you all are well! Who inspired you for this post ;)? Perfect article covering nothing but the truth about the area. Just came across this resource which might underline it even more … https://www.internations.org/expat-insider/2019/quality-of-life-index-39831 with Spain scoring high in various (important) areas.

    All the best, Torsten

      Thanks Torsten, Yes, you and our last years long term winter renters definitely gave us inspiration. We are also now targeting visitors from Asia and America to use Cal Domino as a base to explore Europe. This part of north-east Spain is so underrated out of the normal summer beach season. It’s a crime not to have the Villa full all year long 🙂
