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.

The house immediately impresses - from the entrance to the rooms to the living area to the view. It's set in a lovely secluded area and the owners have thought about pretty much everything. We enjoyed our stay immensely. Pottering about in the house; visiting local villages, having BBQs watching the sun go down; walks around the area; and visiting Cadaques (a little further but worth the drive). We slept very well every night - something we find very important on holiday! Highly recommend for a stay.
