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

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.

Daniel met us at the bus stop and showed us to the apartment, whilst providing helpful hints and tips along the way of where to shop, places to visit etc. We particularly loved the apartment's roof terrace and the great sea views! Everything is there in the apartment that you could possibly need and, nearby, there are shops, a great butcher / deli, bars and restaurants and, of course, it's only a 2 min walk to San Sebastian Playa! We would definitely like to re-book :-)

                                                                                                    My family and I recently spent a week at the villa, and had a wonderful experience. Given the size of our party – 8 adults and 2 children – we were looking for a property that would provide us with ample space and modern conveniences, without sacrificing the traditional Spanish aesthetic. In all regards, this villa delivered what we were looking for. The house is spacious, with a particularly large master suite, and has an outside, covered dining space that allows for alfresco dining even if an occasional storm passes through (as happened on one night during our stay). While not a negative per se, I ought to mention that as of the time of visiting, there were only three double beds in the house. The fourth bedroom can accommodate a couple, but it has two single beds which we pushed together. The pool is on a lower sun-kissed tier of the property, with an umbrella covered portion for those favoring occasional shade. The grounds are beautiful, and the views of the surrounding countryside are exceptional, especially at sunset. With regard to the location itself, it’s perched on the top of a hill situated on top of a very small village, though the walk there takes only a couple of minutes. There is a small grocery store in the village, but you’re unlikely to use it for much beyond the essentials, so I would strongly recommend renting at least one car in order to be able to make trips to the much larger supermarket in Martorell, which is located a few miles away. There is also a small restaurant in the village which serves tasty, if fairly basic, Spanish food from a small menu (it’s only for lunch though). We cooked on the wood/coal fired BBQ at the house almost every evening, and had a great time. For those looking to dine out every night though, the nearby options are more limited and do involve either driving or ordering taxis, of which there aren’t many. Rosa and Glenn could not have been more helpful, accommodating hosts, both before and during our stay. My mother’s birthday took place while we were there, and Rosa was exceptionally helpful in volunteering to help organize a traditional Spanish meal, complete with seafood paella, cooked by a private chef on the property, the cost for which was around 70 Euro per person (though obviously varies depending on what you order). All in all, I would highly recommend staying at the property if you are looking for a stay-at-home style villa vacation.
