Make a holiday rental, home, or villa in Catalonia your home away from home

Accommodation in Catalonia

The autonomous region of Catalonia encompasses the majestic Pyrenees mountains, the exciting city of Barcelona, and the beautiful 250-mile long coastline. The southern two-thirds of the coast is known as Costa Dorada while the area north of Barcelona is the Costa Brava. Most holiday rentals in this region are on the coast.

Places to holiday in Catalonia

Barcelona - As the capital of Catalonia, Barcelona is a vibrant city known for modern art, innovative architecture, high fashion, exciting nightlife, interesting restaurants and great shopping. Holiday rentals in Barcelona and apartments in Catalonia are amid the narrow, winding streets of the Gothic Quarter and Las Ramblas, as well as the busy city centres filled with street performers, artists and vendors.

The Costa Brava - The area is a 160 km stretch of beautiful coastline in the northern region of Catalonia. Holiday homes, villas, and rentals in the Costa Brava are amid the wonders of natural beauty, endless miles of sandy beaches, and of course, sunshine. While there are many tourist centres, they are conveniently located alongside traditional fishing villages, hidden coves and medieval towns with ancient castles. The Costa Brava has four regions; L'Alt Empordá, Baix Empordá, La Selva and Girones.

La Costa Dorada- 20 towns and numerous beaches with clean sand and crystal clear waters make up the Costa Dorada. Holiday homes and villas in Costa Dorada are often cradled between the sea and the mountain range where there are wide areas filled with quiet towns and farmlands, where vineyards, olive groves, hazel trees and almond trees grow, and occasionally even vegetable gardens. The large tourist centers along the beaches of the Costa Dorada, such as Sitges, Tarragona and Delta del Ebro, which have developed on the model of the old towns, so are sometimes located on top of hills near the sea, as they once were as a defense against corsairs and pirates in earlier centuries.

Things to do in Catalonia

In the gorgeous city of Barcelona, it is worth getting a panoramic view by taking a ride on the cable cars spanning the Port Vell. Barcelona holidaymakers staying at holiday rentals also enjoy the spectacular Barcelona Cathedral with its distinctive octagonal bell towers, the Royal Palace and the Picasso Museum. Barcelona also has an excellent zoo and Europe's largest aquarium. Barcelona apartments make a great home base for exploring other places of interest in the region, including the monastery of Santus Creus and the Penedes wine country. Montserrat is famous for its Monastery of Montserrat, home of Benedictine monks and the famous Black Virgin of Montserrat. The local museum features works by El Greco, Caravaggio and Correggio. North of Barcelona, guests of Catalonia villas and holiday rentals can visit the magnificent cathedral in Girona.

The Costa Brava is formed by a lot of little towns and small fishing ports like L'Escala, Palamos or Sant Feliu de Guixols. Here you can visit the Parc Natural de Cap de Creus or the Parc Natural Aiguamolls in L'Empordà, the Illes Medes in L'Estartit, the city of Roses and Empuries, the medieval cities like Pals and Peratallada, the ancient city of Tossa de Mar and the beautiful botanic gardens in Blanes and Lloret de Mar. Gorgeous beaches and many other entertainments will fill your time while staying at a holiday home, rental, or villa anywhere in the Costa Brava with an average 2500 sunny hours every year.

The Costa Dorada has several towns within close proximity, giving the area a diverse feel suitable for all holiday seekers. Inland there are many towns with great personalities and interesting cities, such as Reus, Valls, Montblanc, Tortosa and the great medieval monasteries: Poble, Santes Creus and Scala Dei. Visitors staying at holiday homes in the region can also enjoy the picturesque landscapes in Prades and Siurana, rugged mountain ranges with big game reserves in Tivissa, Cardo and Ports de Tortosa, and the unique delta of the Ebro river, with its clusters of lagoons and the facilities it offers for wild fowl hunting.

Weather on Catalonia

Catalonia’s is an ideal location for a Spanish holiday home due to it’s location on the shores of the Mediterranean. This means visitors staying at holiday rentals can enjoy a warm, welcoming climate and pleasant temperatures all year round. Rainfall is often heavy, with levels of around 1,000 mm per year but this only helps maintain the region’s beautiful green landscapes and plant life.

Travel to Catalonia

Barcelona's airport, called el Prat, is about 10 km to the city centre. Once there, you can go to the centre by train (stopping at Sants and Plaça de Catalunya) or by bus (Aerobus). El Prat Airport is served by a number of airlines, including charter flights from easyJet. Another airport is Girona, near the Costa Brava. There are now flights to this airport by Ryanair and British Airways. Once in Catalonia, it is best to travel by train using Spanish train company, RENFE.

Lovely apartment

4 of 5
Had a lovely time in Barcelona with my husband and 7 year old. He loved the little bed in the loft. Barcelona very busy, but a lovely city. Struggled to find anything to eat before 8pm, but think this is Spanish culture. The doorway and stairs up to the apartment looks a bit unsavoury and dingy, however the apartment is nice and very safe. Lots of steps up to apartment, which wasn't a problem for us, but may be for an older person and the railings quite short, so make sure children don't lean over. Manuel (although we never met) was a lovely host and offered to book a table for dinner and sent directions to the good restaurants and even ordered us a taxi to the airport. If you want a real Spanish experience stay here. Bed lovely and comfy and shower was hot with lots of power. The apartment was clean and compact with a heater for the cold wheather. Small shop two doors up and plenty of cafes for pastries. Apartment really close to everything. We booked open top tour for two days and also walked to the gothic quarter which was fantastic. Loved our little break.

Perfect Sant Pere location, comfortable apartment with a huge terrace

5 of 5
Our month-long stay spanned the run up to Christmas until the Epiphany celebrations; and if you happen to be there the Three Kings parade on the evening of 5th January is unmissable. Booking the apartment was relatively straightforward and Victor and Flor were extremely helpful and accommodating throughout. In advance of arrival Flor kept in contact with us and met us at exactly the time arranged. This apartment forms the top floor of the building, there is a lift for the first few floors with the final floor accessed by an easy flight of stairs. The apartment is attractively presented and with two private double bedrooms (one double, one king; both with doors) with a further sofa bed in the living room, I'd say it is ample space for 4 people - more would be a squeeze. The toilet and shower room is pretty small but served us well. The washing machine works well and there's a line outside on the terrace to dry clothes. The huge, quiet terrace is accessed via a large window (which could be tricky for the less able bodied person). Overall, we absolutely loved the place and had a marvellous time. It is a wonderful peaceful spot in a beautiful part of town which is easily navigated on foot and we'd happily stay there again.

First class, clean fresh & modern in excellent position.

5 of 5
Everything is just as described. Fred & his collegues were very helpful and communicated promptly from booking right up to our stay. The apartment has everything you need and has been tastefully renovated. It is in good position being 15 mins walk from Sagrada Familia. I would recommend this to anybody visiting for a city break .
