On the beautiful Costa Dorada of north eastern Spain is the attractive coastal town of Torredembarra. Situated within the province of Tarragona, in the famous Catalonia region, holiday rentals in Torredembarra have a lot going for them and are especially popular with families. Great beaches, lovely weather, history, and beautiful scenery are just some of the reasons why Torredembarra villas and apartments are such a hit!
Being situated on the popular Costa Dorada, one of the best things about holidaying in a Torredembarra villa is the beaches. There are three beaches here to enjoy, each with something a little different to offer, and of course many Torredembarra holiday apartments are just steps away from at least one of the beaches! For the active, there are always water sports available to try.
The town of Torredembarra is large enough to have everything you need, yet not too large, and offers entertainment, great restaurants, a lovely modern marina, and shopping. Throughout the year, lively Catalan festivals take centre stage in the town. The historic quarter of the town features a 16th century castle, and a tower dating from the 12th or 13th century. The Church of Sant Pere is also of interest, as is the lighthouse.
A few minutes drive down the coast is the larger coastal town of Tarragona. This historic town has many attractions and makes a perfect place to spend an afternoon or evening away from your Torredembarra accommodation. Tarragona is most famous for its Roman ruins which are listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The famous Port Aventura theme park is also easily accessible via a short drive from your Torredembarra holiday home, and is a popular day out for visitors of all ages! Only about an hour’s drive to the north is the attractive city of Barcelona, to which a day trip is highly recommended.
Torredembarra has a mostly Mediterranean climate perfect for enjoying a self catering holiday at any time of the year. The Catalonia region isn’t quite as warm and dry as the south of Spain, but you can still expect temperatures in the high 20’s C in the summer. Spring and autumn are pleasantly warm, and winters are mild, dropping to an average high of around 12°C in January. A little rain may be expected throughout the year, though this shouldn’t be enough to ruin your holiday in Torredembarra!
