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.

Travel to Caldes de Malavella

Caldes de Malavella holiday rentals are convenient for travellers from the UK because Girona Airport (GRO) is just over ten kilometres from the town.

Beautiful villa - great garden and location

5 of 5
This property is in a peaceful location surrounded by the Gavarre hills. The house is well equipped including a table tennis table and swimming pool toys for children. The gardens are beautiful with a variety of seating in the sun and shaded areas. There are a variety of beaches (driving distance) and towns to visit and Barcelona is a day trip away. I would highly recommend this villa.

Gorgeous surroundings

4 of 5
Wonderful villa in such a peaceful, green area so close to the sea. Spent a week here with our two children and loved everything about the area, pool, gardens and the proximity to the sea. Lovely terrace to sit and have a meal on. The pool, which we have mostly to ourselves, was lovely to get into each morning before breakfast or after a 'hard day' on the beach! Elisabeth and her husband are wonderful hosts and have lots of useful information on local places to visit. The town of Sant Feliu is a gem and very Spanish with excellent restaurants a good daily fruit and veg market. Would recommend this villa and hoping to visit again next year. Superb.

What a great place to stay! Six of us spent a week here loved the apartment and the area

5 of 5
The apartment is very clean , modern interior and well equipped. All good sized bedrooms and living spaces at the front and terrace to the rear. Lots to do in the area we visited S'Argo and Platja D'Aro as well as spending time in Sant Feliu and all were nice in different ways. Beaches are all great, beautiful scenery and some really interesting buildings especially in central Sant Feliu. A big thumbs up to Peter and Lucy for all their help and information before and during our stay. Hoping we can make it back here again 😎 Ps still can't believe €3 for decent bottle of red !!!
