    El Port holiday homes are in the resort of Llança, where there are Blue Flag Beaches and superb restaurants all framed by rugged mountain ranges. El Port apartments are generously proportioned and come with all of the domestic convenience needed for self-catering accommodation. Many offer comforts like satellite television, gardens and barbecues, while some also feature lovely views of the Mediterranean. From an apartment in El Port it’s possible to discover the Costa Brava’s famous rugged beauty and history, or follow the coastline to find quiet beaches or the majestic landscapes at Cap de Creus.  

    Things to do

    -Beaches: One of the many appeals of this area is its varied coastline, creating rocky coves, small bays and long sweeping beaches, all within a few kilometres. Playa del Port is the local beach and has been rightly awarded a Blue Flag. It is overlooked by traditional old houses and backed by a palm-lined promenade.

    -Watersports: The craggy coastline in this region makes the waters great for a variety of activities, and there are a number of local companies that arrange trips and provide all the necessary gear. On offer are sea kayak trips around the protected waters of Cap de Creus. This marine park is fantastic for diving too, as the underwater ecosystem is thriving, and there’s plenty to see.

    -Outdoor activities: Inland, Llançá is almost completely enclosed by rocky mountain ranges that have a number of circular and long-distance hiking routes. In the Serra de Rodes, for example, it’s possible to seek out historic hermitages like Santa Elena. Just along the coast to the southeast is the Cap de Creus Natural Park, preserving some incredible coastal scenery great for scenic walks.  

    -Gastronomy: Empordà is a hotbed of modern Catalan cuisine. The resort of Roses a few minutes away was home to Ferran Adrià’s elBulli, rated among the best restaurants in the world, as is Roca, still open and located in the city of Girona. Traditional cuisine here draws on local vegetables, olive oil, chicken and beef. Seafood and fish have always been a big part of the local diet, especially eel, mussels and cuttlefish.  

    -Figueres: This is a charming town, home to the vast San Ferran castle, which dates to the mid-18th century and has a perimeter of around three to five miles. Figueres is also closely associated with the surrealist artist Salvador Dalí. There’s a wonderful museum here displaying many of his most famous works as well as housing the crypt which serves as Dalí’s final resting place.
