Luxury villas in Costa Brava to rent
Costa Brava is a beautiful stretch of coastline bordering deep blue seas and with that, comes luxurious, jaw-dropping villas to stay in. Most villas are right on the coast with a view of the Mediterranean Sea and within walking distance to the beach. But if you'd prefer a more private, out-of-the-way luxury villa, you can find sleek, modern homes or majestic farmhouses in the fields and surrounding areas of nearby Baix Empordà. It's still close enough to gorgeous beaches, mysterious coves, and quaint historic villages, but it's secluded and private, so you can spend peaceful evenings all to yourself!Picturesque Ocean View Luxury Villas
The main reason you come to Costa Brava is the stellar beaches. The view from these villas is breathtaking since you can see everything; the sandy beaches, the hilly landscape, and the magnificent medieval architecture of the nearby villages and castles. Villas in the area also have a spacious garden/terrace to lounge in, and even a private pool! You can unwind while enjoying the sights right from your villa. And you don't have to worry about running out of room; luxury villas can accommodate up to 8 - 10 people, and some even have space for more! Take in the view while having an outdoor Mediterranean breakfast, or an evening pool party with the stars and surrounding hilly nightscapes. The choice is yours!
