Make a holiday villa in Caldes de Malavella your home away from home

Listed on HomeAway, Caldes de Malavella villas are in an area with a spa heritage that goes all the way back to Roman times. Today the town is the base for Vichy Catalán, one of Catalonia’s best-loved mineral waters, and there are two major spa centres with treatments like body-wraps, saunas, pressure showers and various baths. Holiday homes in Caldes de Malavella let you escape for a few days to peaceful seclusion, with the benefit of large grounds, pools and a range of other luxuries. You won’t lack for things to do either, with Costa Brava beaches, golf courses, historical sites and rich nature all reachable from villas in Caldes de Malavella.

Things to do

-Local sights. Caldes de Malavella was originally the Roman spa of Aquae Calidae, and you can still see how the Romans harnessed the underground waters here. There’s a bath complex, mostly intact, featuring a large pool enclosed by a number of rooms where visitors would have enjoyed treatments 2,000 years ago. If you’d like to indulge in a day of modern pampering, just go to the Vichy Catalán or Baleario Prats spas.

-Golf. Claimed in some circles to be Spain’s very best golf course, PGA Catalunya is just minutes from the town of Caldes. It has two courses, representing the highest standards in golf architecture, encompassed by old-growth forest, and with mountain vistas. It might be than you’d like a more affordable alternative, and this can be found at the Franciac Pitch and Putt, for a family-oriented afternoon of golf.

-Hiking. The countryside here will reward anyone with a curious nature. You could take a light walk on the ancient Roman Via Augusta, through flat local farmland on the way to Riudellots, or opt for a more invigorating challenge by taking the six-hour route to the coastal town of Tossa de Mar, through the rough-hewn beauty of the Massis de les Cadiretes mountain range.

-Girona. Girona is no more than 20 minutes north of Caldes, and has plenty to offer anyone with an interest in medieval history. Large parts of the city, including the old and new towns have cobblestones and are pedestrianised, which means you can spend hours exploring every quaint old nook here. One of Europe’s largest Jewish quarters is here, beautifully preserved, and an imposing gothic and Romanesque cathedral looks out over the city.

-Beaches. The coast is only a 15 kilometres from Caldes, and offers intimate and small sandy beaches, backed by dense woodland, at odds with many people’s perception of the Spanish Mediterranean. On the short stretch of coast between Santa Maria de Llorell and Tossa de Mar there are eleven inviting beaches, with coarse golden sand and tranquil waters.

Weather in Caldes de Malavella

The climate in this region is Mediterranean, and a little milder than some locations further south. Summers here bring warm weather for at least five months, during which temperatures occasionally rise above 30 degrees. If you plan to arrive at a Caldes Malavella holiday home in July then it’s worth being prepared for high temperatures and avoiding the midday sun. Winters in this region are moderate, but sometimes the northerly winds off the Pyrenees can add a chilly edge.

The apartment is fully equipped and very comfortable. We were a couple , but there is ample room for six. The town is as you would expect ,very Spanish. There were few tourists and it's mostly the folk from Barcelona who frequent this lovely jewel. The beach is sweeping with very clean clear water. Plenty of restaurants to choose from, at all prices. Do not overlook the "casino ". There is a lot of history associated with it,and an extra plus is the food is excellent and the beer and wine is the best value in town ! Should you wish to self cater, the spa at the market square has all you will need at reasonable prices. Catering for yourself in the apartment is easy as it is very well equipped. We would definitely recommend this apartment and will certainly return.

It is well equipped, comfortable and very pleasant to relax in with the french doors open in the living area and a view overlooking the activities in the square below. The bed was comfortable and the linens, and whole apartment, spotlessly clean. There's a quick lift up to the apartment which is on the third floor. An added bonus is the underground parking just a few steps away. Yes, it's a confined turning area into/out of the car park entrance, but perfectly manageable. The delightful owners were near the apartment to greet us as arranged and to help us into the parking area. Quite useful to have a satnav to get to the apartment area. A really excellent place to stay, we highly recommend to others looking for somewhere in Girona.
