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!

Very Nice Apartment & Perfect Location

5 of 5
We were greeted by Montse Ollé, the friendly administrator of the property, who was waiting at the apartment when we arrived. She informed us of everything we needed to know about the apartment and was eager to answer any questions we had. The apartment is split on two floors with the living room/kitchen on the top floor of the house and the bedrooms below. The entire apartment is furnished with high quality items, including Miele/Bosch appliances, a marble kitchen counter-top, a centrally-controlled Bose stereo system and comfortable sheets and linens. There are four (very clean) bathrooms in the apartment, three of which with showers in each bedroom. The main bathroom also has a tub. There is a fireplace in the living room and directly on the other side of the wall on the balcony, which enables one to keep warm outside. The view from the living room and balcony is magnificent, directly facing the university and the Convent de Sant Domènec. The Cathedral of Girona is just a few meters away and there are numerous ancient paths from the apartment to the old city. If one doesn't want to hear the church bells at night, one should use earplugs. We stayed in the apartment for one week from February 4 to February 11. The weather was nice, having rained only one night. But it was quite cold with temperatures going down to about 2 degrees Celsius. The heating in the apartment was adequate. But it wouldn't have been had the weather been any colder. There were enough blankets and we could have used the fireplace. The apartment was expensive, considering the prices of other apartments in the area. But it was worth it. There were only two (minor) problems with the apartment. There were some dirty dishes in the sink when we arrived and a wet mop in the kitchen closet that didn't smell so good. All in all, our experience was very good, and we would highly recommend this property to anybody looking for a high-end apartment in Girona.

Amazing spacious property with great terraces and unbeatable views of Girona!

5 of 5
We stayed here over the New Years period for 4 nights - a group of 8 (4 couples). It was perfect in every way! Even though it was December/January we still caught the sun on the terrace and had a leisurely breakfast outside every morning with stunning views of Girona. Perhaps it's not quite clear from the pictures but the lounge area is huge and really great for relaxing after a day of walking around Girona (we pulled all four sofas together so we could all sit together in the evening). There is a dining room/table for evening meals. All the 4 bedrooms are really spacious and there was extra blankets for chilly nights. I can imagine this is an amazing place to rent in the summer - the pool looked incredibly inviting but it was too cold this time of year. I recommend taking a morning walk around the local area (there is a nature trail... if you turn right out of villa and follow the Carrer Torre de Sant Narcís it will turn into a track which will take you back around to a road and from there back to villa). Also there is a mountain to the left of the villa (if you look at villa from road, mountain is on left hand side) which you can climb up and it was the best views of Girona - you need to walk down to Monestir de Sant Daniel then up the hill. The walk up/down to Girona central is about 20minutes and was good exercise.. we all managed the hill fine but we had a car for big supermarket shops. Oh and Girona is a great relaxing place for New Years with a party at the Cathedral from midnight on New Years Eve... the bells chime and you have to eat 12 grapes! I would highly recommend this villa to everyone and hope to come back!

Great Location to explore Girona

4 of 5
We enjoyed exploring Girona from a convenient location particularly the nighttime when the Christmas lights were on and all the people were outside regardless of age. The apartment was bright and new and had everything you would need. Our hosts met us at the car park and walked us to the apartment and showed us around to make sure we were comfortable and went ove the city map to give us information on where to go in the city. They provdied very helpful hints printed in English of highlights of the city and the area. We really and enjoyed the Sunset Jazz Cafe which was a short walk from the apartment.
