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!

The house is very well equipped and it was lovely to have the patio and garden, offering several different places to sit outside. The walk into the city (20 minutes) is very pleasant, along the banks of a stream, bringing you into town just behind the cathedral. In the other direction, there are footpaths out into the hills - we climbed to a tower at St Miguel, which offered wonderful views all around. This was the best of both worlds - like being in the countryside, yet also close to the city centre. Roser was very friendly and welcoming; she explained local buses, shops and provided maps to help. She left us to enjoy the space, but was there to help if we needed anything.

For 2 of us there was ample space and the location is super-convenient, a min walk from barri bell and the river/old town. The apt block is populated mostly by working locals, rather than tourist accommodation and the environment reflects this. However, we found the apt very quiet at night, and our major disturbance was the canary downstairs singing in the morning! The amenities are good and the apt is spacious enough for 2-3 people. There is ample parking in front of the bldg, which is a godsend in Girona. The only time we had a problem was during the week of the flower festival when the city was heaving. Karen was an excellent host and provided us with lots of useful info and practical help when we encountered some problems with local administration. In summary, the apt was perfect for our needs and represents excellent value for money for its city centre location. Highly recommended.
