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.

Small but cosy and fully equipped house (e.g. Weber BBQ, Nespresso machine, plenty of towels...) in beautiful nature. We are a family with son of 17, daughter of 13, and a son of 4 and we all loved it. The nature around the house is great for hiking and running, and there are many beautiful golf courses around. It's a great location if you want to make short trips to Girona, or the beaches (5 minutes away by car), and afterwards get back to the tranquility of the house and jump in the pool. Even Barcelona can be day trip. Girona is really only 20 minutes away and offers Shopping malls and a beautiful old city center. There was no tv, but we found a holiday without screens very rewarding. In summary it is a very nice house, with everything you need, suitable for any kind of active or inactive vacation.

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.

Fijn dat er een prive parkeerplaats is voor de auto. Wel goed om te vermelden dan er behoorlijk wat trappen gelopen moeten worden voordat je bij het appartement komt. Voor kleine kinderen en ouderen niet altijd makkelijk. De kleine baai is heerlijk voor de kinderen, waar ze lekker kunnen snorkelen.
