Make a holiday apartment on the Costa Brava your home away from home

HomeAway has compiled a huge choice of holiday apartments on the Costa Brava. You can choose the formats, locations and facilities you’d prefer to find the accommodation that has all you need for a joyous getaway. When temperatures soar during the summer, you might opt for a private pool, garden or air-con at your Costa Brava holiday home. If you’re here for sun and sand there are resorts of all descriptions along the coast, some that offer modern family fun and others that are more laid-back and adult-oriented. And when you’re not out and about you can make the most of your Costa Brava apartment, whether it’s a modern pad with sea views or a stone-built rural retreat in the mountains.

Things to do

-Beaches. An exciting feature of Costa Brava is the fabulous variety of beaches. At places like Lloret de Mar you can enjoy modern resorts offering lots of activities and entertainment. The Gulf of Roses to the north is an elegant bay with a huge stretch of wide sandy beaches. And at spots like Begur you’ll discover unfrequented rocky coves next to calm and transparent waters, fantastic for swimming and snorkelling.

-Natural scenery. Almost a third of the terrain in the Costa Brava is marked as a specially protected area. This means that there’s almost no end of walking and biking trails through unblemished natural landscapes. Alongside the coast are beautiful mountain ranges like the Montgrí Massif, noted for their wild and rocky appearance. If you’re a diver then head for Cap de Creus, east of Roses, and home to a large marine reserve.

-Culture and heritage. There are more than 70 museums across the Costa Brava, covering fields as varied as cinema, archaeology, traditional farming, toys and art. The town of Figueres is closely linked with 20th Century surrealist Dalí, and there’s a large collection of his work is here, housed in a museum designed by the artist himself. Meanwhile if you’re a history buff you can find a wealth historical fragments in Costa Brava dating back as far as the ancient Greeks.

-Girona. This is one of Spain’s best conserved historic cities, and packed with superb examples from a range of architectural periods. See the city walls here, much which are still standing, or visit Girona cathedral, one of the best pieces of Spanish Gothic architecture in the country. Another breathtaking church is Sant Feliu from the 1300s, unique in Spain for its spire. You could also stroll the banks of the Onyer and take in the tall and narrow old houses on the riverbanks.

-Gastronomy. Having a long coastline as well as a mountainous hinterland affords the Costa Brava a traditional cuisine that is at once rustic and innovative. Black rice is always a favourite – it’s a seafood dish in the same vein as paella, with rice dyed with octopus ink. Seasonal produce plays an important role – autumn means fantastic wild mushrooms, while early spring is when the asparagus is sublime.

Weather on the Costa Brava

On holiday at self-catering accommodation on the Costa Brava you will be in a region with a mild Mediterranean climate. Summer highs can be tempered slightly by winds from the Pyrenees, but the period from May to October is hot when you compare the Costa Brava to places in northern and central Europe. Daily highs push 30 degrees and rain is scarce until autumn arrives. Winters are moderate, with highs in double figures by day and lows that rest just above zero.

Travel to the Costa Brava

Girona Airport (GRO) is the main air transport hub for holiday homes on the Costa Brava. It tends to be served mostly by low-cost carriers, which provide a host of routes during the summer season. As well as various connections to cities in the UK, there are links between Girona and Dublin, Amsterdam, Marseille, Brussels and many more. There are six bus lines serving the airport at Girona, branching out to all corners of the Costa Brava. The rail network is also wide-ranging, with stations at most of the major resorts.

Close to supermarket, restaurants. The apartment is just fine, and there all you need for 4 people. Good WiFi, discwasher, etc. Clean and need The owner is very helpfull and friendly and we we're often in contact though internet. Only thing that could be better was the lack off airconditioning, but with the fans you get buy. We'll certainly be back to the apartement, if we get the possibility. Peter Soerensen Denmark

                                                                                          We spent a week in this villa and it was absolutely perfect. The pictures and description on the website were accurate, it was spotlessly clean, and this was by far the nicest place we stayed on our two week trip. It is a few minute drive to Begur, and a relatively easy walk to a great beach (Sa Riera) with good restaurants. My wife and I (42 and 47 years old) and our children (5 and 7) made the walk to the beach every day without any complaints (and some thanks for working off all the great food we tended to eat). Note that the walk is about 300/400 steps, so you would want to be somewhat fit for the walk back, although there is also parking at the beach (at least in June/early July). The whole area around Begur is beautiful, with stunning medieval villages spaced about a 15 minute drive apart, each with something to see and a great place to eat or drink. Eloi and his wife were extremely helpful, had great suggestions, and responded to emails very quickly. Can't recommend the villa enough. We also ate at Mas Pou and were very impressed -- great food, and beautiful outdoor seating area in a restored masia with a playground and ping pong for the kids. Sa Riera had pedal boats for rent with attached slides. I think the highlight of the trip for my sons was sliding into the ocean from the boat, although swimming in the pool every day was a close second.

The owners, Lucy and Peter, were exceptionally helpful in answering our questions and requests and making sure that our holiday went smoothly and we enjoyed the villa and surrounding area to the full. When we arrived at the villa we were delighted with the accommodation which was bigger and better equipped and surpassed our expectations. The villa was equipped with everything from fluffy towels, a complimentary starter pack of food in the fridge, liquid soap available at every sink, a box of pool toys, plenty of pots, pans, crockery and cutlery, pretty bedding, washing up liquid, washing powder etc etc. For the baby we had a travel cot, sheets, a boster seat and even a little duck for him to play with in the bath! There is a very scenic view over the sea from the garden and solarium, parking for our 2 hire cars, a quiet location and use of a large pool in attractive garden which we never had to share with any other residents. We enjoyed the walk through the pine forest down into the town. Saint Felieu has a sandy beach, attractive promenade, good selection of restaurants, cafes and shops and on Sunday you can mixed with the locals at the market. It is an easy drive into Barcelona if you want to venture further afield. The 'Guests Only' section of Lucy and Peter's website gave us plenty of useful information about area and was supplemented with up to date information, by email, from Lucy and Peter, whilst we were on holiday, We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this villa and location and I am sure you wouldn't find more helpful owners.
