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.

Really great apartment and owners were superb!

5 of 5
We arrived to find a nice basket of some food and a bottle of Rioja and Cava in the fridge for us. The apartment was very clean, had lots of towels and had all the essentials for cooking, washing up, doing laundry etc. We also had a problem with the power going out one night but the owners sent an electrician the same evening and had it fixed for us. The apartment is less than a minute from the beach and can be seen from the balcony. There's tonnes of shops, bars and restaurants nearby along the front or closer to the centre of the town. Everybody was really friendly. We'd really recommend staying here and we'll definitely come and stay here if we visit Costa Brava again!

Fantastic Villa, Amazing Views and Wonderful Pool & Jacuzzi

5 of 5
Casa Nikel is a fantastic villa with amazing views over Calonge, St Antonio De Calonge and Palamos. The villa sits in a quiet residential area and is very well equipped. The pool and jacuzzi, which are both heated, are wonderful and our kids enjoyed them immensely. Joan and Trevor are excellent hosts and helped us quickly when we had a problem with the water supply. The villa is in a great location to access nearby towns and beaches, but to get the most out of the area a car is essential.
