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.

Because we planned such a long stay in one place we wanted to make sure that we were making the right choice.We had lots of questions at the beginning and Peter and Lucy answered everything quickly and providing us with lots of information.From our very first enquiry we struck up a good relationship with them and this was important to us as it gave us confidence we had chosen the right place for our stay. The apartment is large, very comfortable and stylish with everything that you need.Everything was of good quality and the whole apartment was nicely decorated. Bed linen changes were done on a regular basis (with fresh towels) by Carmen the wonderful local property manager. We felt relaxed and "at home" straight away.The apartment is ideally located close to town( about a 10 min walk to the centre and the beach) and it has great views over the marina and out to sea.The balcony is spacious with plenty of room for 4 people to sit and have a meal or a drink. We loved Sant Feliu.Its a real Spanish town with life all year round.It has some great cafes,bars and restuarants and a very pleasant pedestrian zone with small shops and alleys.There is always lots going on and Peter and Lucy were kind enough to give us regular updates on local events and celebrations over the Festive season and beyond.There is a fish and fruit/vegetable market most days and a full street market on a Sunday- quite an experience ! All in all we loved our stay.Thank you Peter and Lucy for everything that made our 3 month stay so memorable.

                                                                                                  5 of 5

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.

We felt at home immediately and were delighted at how well equipped the property was. Alan and Keely have really thought about everything you could possibly need for a relaxing Villa holiday, there were so many lovely home comforts and extras throughout the villa that made a big difference to us. Other villa holiday homes we've stayed in have never shown this level of dedication to their visitors. We really appreciated the care and time they've taken to ensure that guests have a fabulous time. We cannot recommend it highly enough.
