When you have your vacation plans set for Spain's glorious Costa Brava, you'll have miles of the most picturesque coastline to explore and some of the best beaches in the world at your fingertips. The area is also noted for its world-class golf, hopping nightlife, 5-star restaurants and amazing outdoor activities, but that doesn't mean you can't also enjoy some quiet, peace and serenity during your stay in Costa Brava. You'll find a true retreat, a place to refresh your body and soul, when you choose one of these out-of-the way, private vacation homes with us here at Exceptional Stays.
Nestled in one of Costa Brava's most remote locations in the natural beauty of the Spanish countryside, Mas Grau offers perfect privacy in the most incredible setting. Up to 14 people may be comfortably accommodated in this exquisite private home that boasts six bedrooms and 6.5 baths across a full 10,000 square feet of living space. There's room for the entire extended family and a nanny, and the home's large, well-landscaped grounds just beg for some time spent playing a bit of football or croquet or sitting back to watch the children enjoy the fresh air and sunshine. There's also a large private swimming pool on the property, and no one will complain if rain begins to fall because there's a fun game room inside.
Despite the remote location of Mas Grau, you'll have no worries about being isolated from everything that Costa Brava has to offer during your stay. The airport and a high-speed train that can take you wherever you'd like to go is only 12 miles away, and this home is just 9 short miles to one of Costa Brava's most incredible beaches. Our dedicated concierge team is also always available to ensure that you have quality transportation with a professional driver whenever you're ready to head out on an adventure.
A short, lovely walk through the home's surrounding trees will take you right into the nearby medieval village, and you're free to explore to your heart's content and even stop in for a church service. You'll discover a flowing stream to follow, which is a favorite for those romantic moonlit walks after the children have gone to sleep for the night. Also within walking distance of Mas Grau is a popular deli that offers the best sandwiches and the Lluerna Espai Creatiu, which is devoted to encouraging creativity and well-being through interactive workshops and activities. These include individual body therapy and a unique photography class.
True to its name, the exquisite private estate of Olive Grove is found at the end of a long olive tree-lined drive in the midst of a working olive-oil plantation. As many as 10 of your favorite family members and friends are sure to enjoy a comfortable stay in this home that offers five bedrooms and seven baths across more than 5,000 square feet of living space. This is the perfect choice in a vacation home for those who truly want to get away from a busy lifestyle, and the wide open spaces that contain nothing more than fields and olive groves are perfect for pleasant ramblings and time spent together as a family.
There's plenty of room in the yard to play, and everyone will adore the 130-foot infinity swimming pool. When you're ready to go inside, you'll discover much more to do with a soundproof music room that boasts a piano and a drum set, a game room with a ping-pong table and a foosball table and an in-home theater room with a full library of movies to enjoy on the large screen.
You'll want to take a short walk away from the property to explore your surroundings, or our concierge team will be happy to ensure that you have bicycles for every family member. Dirt paths will take you to the nearby markets that offer fresh fruits and vegetables along with homemade local favorites, and you'll have access to the best top-tier Spanish wines made right in the area. Expect to encounter regular wine and olive oil tastings as well because the locals are anxious to share their excellent natural products. The Town Hall is within walking distance as well, and you're welcome to stop in to learn about the area and the many things to see and do during your stay.
