Villa Shangri-La - Paradise Found! Private Estate - Spectacular Ocean and Mountain Views!


Details of the Villa

Villa Shangri-La is located in the heart of Catalonia, midway between Barcelona and the French border. Set on the edge of the Les Gavarres National Park just 5 kms inland from the sparkling Mediterranean Sea, the villa enjoys stunning panoramic views over the ocean and surrounding hillsides. Built in a traditional Catalan style our modern villa has 4 double bedrooms, three with en-suites, all of which enjoy fabulous views and will sleep up to 9 people. The villa has a private, heated swimming pool and large outdoor terrace areas.

Villa Shangri-La is accessed at road level, a very important detail as many properties in the area have extremely steep driveways! The villa is on a very quiet 'no-through' road, so you will not be annoyed by passing traffic.

In the 1933 novel "Lost Horizon" by British author James Hilton, 'Shangri-La' is a mystical, harmonious valley. The name has become synonymous with any earthly paradise - a permanently happy land, isolated from the outside world. In the novel, the people living in Shangri-La are almost immortal, living years beyond the normal lifespan and only very slowly aging in appearance! We have found the perfect place to relax and unwind and are sure it will be yours too!

Villa Shangri-La is located in Cabanyes, Calonge

This stunning luxury villa sits in its own multi-level gardens in the exclusive, private community of Cabanyes, a short distance from the beautiful Blue Flag beaches of Catalonia. It is finished to a very high standard and is comprehensively equipped with all modern conveniences. The exterior of the property benefits from a south facing, sunny aspect, with shady retreats. The interior has been tastefully decorated and feels like a 'home from home'. The heated, private pool is suitable for young children and can be viewed from the terraces and balconies. Only a 5 minute drive away is the medieval town of Calonge, where restaurants and shops can be found. Not much further, at 5km, is the seaside resort of Sant Antoni de Calonge with a 5km long family beach and a wide promenade plus many shops, restaurants and tapas bars!

Notes on accommodation
With grandchildren ourselves we are mindful of the younger ones and provide a cot, highchair and stair/step gates on request. Our home is completely double glazed and of modern construction (but in the Catalan traditional style) and so it stays cool in the summer, its elevation catching those refreshing breezes. However, it is also warm in the winter and has a very efficient heating system together with newly-fitted log burner fireplace for the cooler periods. It is therefore ideal for rental all year round. Temperatures in winter can dip to single figures sometimes, especially overnight, but it is not uncommon to enjoy over 20 degrees in the months of December and January!
