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

Costa Dorada holiday homes are ideal for beach getaways, and HomeAway has a wide selection of the best rentals in this region. The choice is vast, from sleek seafront apartments for couples, to large and historic stone villas in the coastal mountain ranges. Costa Dorada apartments tend to be homelike, and are fitted with contemporary appliances like dishwashers and dryers, as well as thoughtful extras like entertainment facilities, wi-fi and AC. Pools and private gardens are luxuries offered by a great many holiday homes on the Costa Dorada and will make it all the easier to unwind during your escape to this beautiful part of Spain.

Things to do

-Beaches. The Costa Dorada has a reputation for long, golden sandy beaches, many of which have earned Blue Flag status recognising their cleanliness and services. There’s 92 kilometres of coastline, with around 60 different beaches. Some of the best include Miami Platja, Calafell, Cambrils, as well as less frequented choices like Mont-Roig del Camp and Torredembarra.

-Heritage. The Tarragona province has fantastic medieval heritage in the form of Cistercian abbeys, two of which, the UNESCO listed Poblet and Santes Creus, are just in from the coast. If you hold an interest in Catalan modernist architecture then many of the towns on the Costa Dorada are blessed with buildings by Gaudí and his contemporaries – Reus is especially well-endowed in this respect.

-Family attractions. On the Costa Dorada you won’t have to look hard for days out. Port Aventura is a headline attraction – a state-of-the-art theme park with exciting rollercoasters and amusements. There’s also a water park, and three golf courses. Another water park, Aquopolis, can be found at La Pineda, while Aqualeon is a vast nature-themed attraction also boasting a water park alongside a host of animal exhibits.

-Tarragona. This city is loaded with historical interest that goes all the way back to Roman times. In that era it was the most important stronghold on the Iberian Peninsula, and today there are plenty of fragments pointing to its former status. You can visit the theatre, see the circus, ancient walls, forum and even a portion of an aqueduct just outside the city.

-Food and drink. The Costa Dorada is close to five different DO wine regions, making it a great destination for tours. There’s Penedès, known for its whites, and the world famous Priorat, the vineyards of which tend to be found at a slightly higher altitude. Meanwhile all the classic Mediterranean ingredients are cultivated or sourced in this region – olives, fish, honey and a wide variety of fruits and nuts.

Weather on the Costa Dorada

Apartments on the Costa Dorada are set in a Mediterranean climate zone. In the summer it’s a good idea to pack the factor 30, with lots of unbroken sunshine and temperatures that rise to the high-20s or more. Rain is very rare until later in the season, when storms can occur. Winters are very moderate in this part of Spain – it’s normal for temperatures to hit the low-teens during the day and remain above freezing at night. The transitional seasons of spring and autumn are brief and usually mild.

Travel to the Costa Dorada

The two main airports serving the region around Costa Dorada holiday accommodation are Reus (REU) and Barcelona El Prat (BCN). The former is at the midway point on the coast, and receives mostly low-cost traffic from Northern Europe, with plenty of links to the UK in the summer months. Barcelona meanwhile has year-round connections and sits just beyond the northeastern tip of the Costa Dorada. Most of the big towns and resorts have Renfe railway stations, and there’s a good choice of regional bus lines from Barcelona.

It is ideally situated for the main shopping area, train station, restaurants and beach. We parked our car near the lighthouse 2 minutes walk away where it is free but there is meter parking outside the apartment. Sabine could not have been more helpful.
