Make a holiday villa in Castell-Platja d’Aro your home away from home

Castell-Platja d’Aro villas are in a lovely coastal town with fabulous sandy beaches, backed by steep wooded hills. This destination suits holidaymakers who value privacy, but still want access to all the fun and activities of a Mediterranean resort. Holiday homes in Castell-Platja d’Aro provide comforts like private pools and gardens, as well as thoughtful domestic facilities like Internet access, satellite TV and fully appointed kitchens. The gorgeous medieval city of Girona is 30 minutes away by car, and there are a wealth of opportunities for hiking, watersports, golf and much more close to villas in Castell-Platja d’Aro.

Things to do

-Beaches: The local coastline offers eight different beaches, varying in size and character. Best for families is La Platja Gran, a long, inviting arc of golden sand with superb access to the town’s amenities. A little less frequented are coves and hidden bays like Sa Conca and Sa Cova, which bookend La Platja Gran and boast transparent waters and sparser development.

-Outdoor fun: The town’s hinterland is rugged, wild and offers wonderful terrain for hikers and mountain bikers. There are caves, pine forests, peaks, romanesque churches and sweeping vineyards to admire. Many visitors make for the lookout at Roca Martina for exceptional views of the Mediterranean. Golfers have five courses within a half-hour drive, the closest being Masnou Platja d’Aro, featuring 18 holes and a pitch and putt course.

-Heritage: Benedormiens castle can be found close by and is open to visitors—it dates to the 11th century and has witnessed plenty of upheaval over the years, now serving as a local cultural centre. Just outside the town is Mas Daussá, a spectacular farmhouse that dates to the 1500s, while in Castell-Platja d’Aro there’s an interesting Doll Museum with a collection numbering several hundred and spanning a number of centuries.  

-Gastronomy: Empordà has a great reputation for its cuisine, which takes advantage of a location sandwiched between the Mediterranean and the Pyrenees, blending coastal refinement with rustic heartiness. Fish and seafood are important here, with eel, mussels, sea urchins, cuttlefish and anchovies central to many traditional soups and stews. Empordà is also an historic wine-growing region, with a variety of reds, whites and rosés under the local designation of origin label.

-Excursions: The city of Girona is well worth the simple drive north thanks to its spellbinding historical wealth and unique character. It sits on the Onyar River and has kept its original medieval street plan and much of its architecture. You can walk a section of the old defensive walls, visit a preserved Jewish quarter, cross the Onyar to see the city’s beautiful riverside houses and enjoy Girona’s religious heritage at the intact Cathedral and collegiate church of Sant Feliu.

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.

                                                                                                      A wonderful family Christmas in a great villa.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      Three generations stayed here for a week over Christmas. The villa had been left in a spotless condition, the lovely swimming pool heated ( We swam nearly every day), the central heating was on and a welcoming fire lit. The delightful owners had also put up Christmas decorations and a Christmas tree for us and were there to welcome us and to explain how the various services worked. The lay out of the villa works well, the grandparents sleeping in the double room on the lower floor over looking the swimming pool and the rest of the family upstairs in the other three bedrooms. We ate out for most lunches in lovely restaurants in surrounding villages and had dinner in the villa. The vlla was well equipped considering eight of us were eating in. My wife however felt there could have been a few more smaller dishes for serving tapas etc. In all the villa lived up to its website description, although the bedrooms appeared to be smaller than the photgraphs suggested, nevertheless perfectly adequate. We had particulaly good lunches in restaurants over looking the beaches in Llafranc and Tamariu which are very close to Begur and also further afield a great lunch at La Terrasa in Sant Marti d'Empuries further up the coast. We were lucky with the weather upto 17 degrees with sunshine most days, but quite cold at night. We would certainly recommend the villa and would like to thank Eloi and Ingrid for providing for us so well.

The villa layout was ideal as our friends had their own space at pool level and our family were easily accommodated on the middle floor. The villa was very clean and well equipped we had meals together and bbq's on the main kitchen level, plenty of seating for large groups. Kids loved table tennis and pool competitions and swimming pool is huge. Beach access via steps beside the villa only ten minutes down but slightly longer coming back up depending on your fitness. Lovely walk to next (nudist) beach which has some water sports banana boat and water skiing, easy drive to estartit for good diving and jet skis. 1hr drive to Dali museum and Girona, 2 hrs to Barcelona airport. There's a nice hotel - la convent at end of street 2 mins walk and half a dozen bar/restaurants at the shingle beach. Begur is more of a walk (without a footpath) 5 mins in car, lovely village, they even put on a festival for us - festa d'indians. We would definitely return to this villa, also thanks to Juan who made us very welcome. If I had to be picky, kids complained wifi wasn't good but I saw that as a plus!
