Things to do in Espolla, Spain

An Espolla holiday cottage would appeal to you if you’re in need of some peace and quiet, or want to get back to nature for a few days. The Albera mountains are all around and offer a welcome escape from the busy beaches and resorts of the Costa Brava. They remain remarkably untouched by tourism or development and feature numerous Megalithic structures, including menhirs and dolmen. There are numerous trails that will take you to the most scenic spots or sites of archaeological interest. Keep an eye out for Albera cows, which are allowed to roam free throughout this upland area.

There’s also plenty of history surrounding self-catering villas in Espolla, with Romanesque chirches, monasteries and medieval castles. Requesens Castle is just 20 minutes away by car and dates to the 9th Century, with a Romanesque chapel. The castle is surrounded by a forest of Lebanese cedars, said to have been planted by noblemen centuries ago.

The town of Figueres sits just 17 kilometes from villa rentals in Espolla and is synonymous with surrealist artist Salvador Dali, who was born here. There’s a museum devoted to his work that merits a visit by anyone with a passing interest in 20th Century art. Also in Figueres is the 18th Century San Ferran castle, which is the largest historic monument in the whole of Catalonia.

It was very clean and well maintained. Consol and her 2 kids were very helpful and friendly and always available to assist and to give us information about the area and some tips about places and restaurants to visit. We would love to stay here again.

The accommodation is spotless and has everything so you wont even have to take your hair dryer! Modern, spacious, well equipped and airy with great views - its on the third floor and South facing so great for sun lovers and the balcony is huge, we practically lived on it!! We were greeted on our arrival by Kirsten (Emils mum) the perfect host - she gave us the low down on local sights and restaurants and was easily contactable if we needed anything (we didn't). Parking is very close so if you're hiring a car that is a real bonus. There are three super markets with in a 100 yards! with a Mercado (our favourite) next door! perfect. Roses is a lovely resort with great beaches but if its culture, arts and history that float your boat this place perfectly positioned. The roads are great with Figueres only 8 miles away, Girona 35 miles and France only 34 miles down the N11 - 5 stars across the board - thanks Emil and thanks for the "welcome pack" they leave everything including wine!!
