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.

The place was recomadated by some german friends we have who stayed there last year in December. We read the reviews and were actually a bit worried, as some are not so postive. Arriving though, we were welcomed by a very friendly person who explained us everything we needed for our stay. The area is also great, near the sagrada familia. The most stunning part we thought are the 2 terraces, yes the upper one only can be acsesed through a small window, but that we know is tipical in spain, also the lower ceiling, as this is an attic apartment. We now understand some of the reviews, cause maybe in some countries this concept is not very common, but we travel a lot, especially through spain, and are used to this tipical things, which makes everything for us more authentic,.To our releif everything was as our friends told us and as expected, maybe the sofa bed can be a bit uncomfortable as this is situated in a connecting room, but then again this is clearly explained on the website, so no hidden surprises. We really felt one af the locals and surelly will be back next year. Thanks Mr. Herbach.

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 .
