Holidaymakers searching for holiday rentals in Banyoles also enquired about apartments in Sitges Town, villas in Pollensa and apartments in Nueva Andalucia

Banyoles (Costa Brava). Catalonia. Spain

Culinary excellence is a virtue common to all the regions of Girona. You will always be able to enjoy the pleasure of natural, traditional, sophisticated, creative or even ingenious cooking. The major distinguishing feature of the cuisine is the matching of top-quality products from both land and sea, for instance chicken with crayfish.

When you stay in a Banyoles villa you can visit Pla de l´Estany area and you can flavour typical meals in some different restaurants. Some of them are very traditional and the others are more creative. You can also profit from visiting the local market that has taken place every week in the main square in Banyoles since the XIII century. Near Pla de l´Estany, you can also find Volcanic cuisine. They listed eleven products, which include potatoes, pork, fajol (buckwheat), Santa Pau beans, mushrooms... The result is the about one hundred varied and wholesome recipies that are served in restaurants compromised with the essence of the local cuisine.

Besides, you can see other natural places of interest like Banyole lake. The lake's water comes from the highest Garrotxa. The lake has a carstic origin, the higher stratums of the subsoil collapsed years go and the water spouts from the deepest lake zones. Its vegetation is so rich that a lot of kinds of animals can live in the lake: green-neck duck, water pullet and many more.

Not very far away, there is the Old District of Banyoles. You will see La Plaça Major (Main Square) is one of the biggest arcaded square of Catalonia with 37archs. It was built in XIII century when a new bourgeosisie was appearing.

Other places to visit from Banyoles accommodation include: -La Porta dels Turers, which was one of the wall doors.

-Sta. Maria dels Turers church, built in X century. But, nowadays it shows a primitive catalan gotic style.

-El carrer Major (Major Street), the main street the village and where the rich families lived.

-El Tint, la Pia Almoina, la Plaça del Monestir...

And we recommend a swim in the sea at Empuries beach: Empúries is situated in "l´Alt Empordà" near St. Pere Pescador village and l´Escla village. Empúries is a ancient greek and roman city called Emporium, the ruins of which are well worth visiting. The beach near the ruins is very peaceful and its a pleasure go for walk along its sands.

But... that's not all! Banyoles is a hive of activity!

It is in a good area of the city near boutique shopping, cafes and a small supermarket. The area felt very safe and was handy to walk into the old town (10 mins stroll), the city walls (8 mins) and the cathedral (15 mins). There are two balconies, and we enjoyed relaxing on the larger one at the back in the evening as there are comfortable seats and we felt like we were definitely part of city life watching the lights come on around us as locals came back home each night. The kitchen had all the equipment we needed to cook family meals and everything was clean and well kept. Liza had kindly organised a welcome pack of bread, milk etc for us which was lovely. The apartment sleeps six comfortably - seven would be a nuisance as you would have to walk through the bedroom to the balcony. The washing machine is great if you only want to take hand luggage on the plane, or need to wash through cycling kit like we did. Towels and bedding are all provided. The bathroom was good with a large corner bath. The hand held shower was manageable although an overhead shower would have made it perfect. There is plenty to do in Girona itself for a city break. We enjoyed visiting the cathedral, basilica and art museum, and had fun wandering around the Jewish Quarter and sitting in cafes in the old town. The Placa de la Independencia is lovely too. One of the highlights of our city break was getting up before the crowds and walking along the restored city walls, looking down across the red-tiled rooftops to the cathedral, then having a lazy Spanish lunch at a restaurant near the basilica. Away from the buildings, there is a very large wooded park in the city which we cycled through, indeed the whole area is very well set up for cycling and walking around too. There is a parking space but we didn't need it. It is only a couple of minutes walk to the train and bus stations which meant we could easily have day trips to other areas of the region as well as have a city break. Would recommend taking the half hour train journey to Figueres for the amazingly quirky Salvador Dali museum - book online in advance to avoid very long queues. We also took the bus (25 mins) to Banyoles to swim in the lake - best to either buy a coffee and swim at the cafe swimming area or pay £13 each for the Banyoles swimming club site. Definitely recommend Girona and this apartment for a city break.

What a wonderful experience to be so close to the history of the city and to be able to be part of the daily heartbeat. Andrea was wonderful. It was late in the evening when she met us with a smile and such enthusiasm for her adopted city and her job. We loved the apartment. It was perfect for the 3 of us. Even the walk with luggage and the walk to the lot where we parked didn't spoil the experience. We were thankful for the elevator, however small. We appreciated the air conditioner and the washer and dryer. It was a great place to come home to at the end of each full day of exploring. Waking up with the bustle of the city was also enjoyable. The doors/window shutters on the balconies kept the apartment very quiet. Except for the jack hammers the day the water mains were being worked on, we had no noise. I would certainly recommend this place and this company, Owners Direct, to anyone traveling on their own (without a tour guide). It was so easy to find the perfect property for our needs and to be assured before leaving home and along the way that you were looking out for our stay to be the best it could be---and it was. Thank you.
