Make a holiday rental villa or cottage in Espolla, Spain your home away from home

Espolla is a munipality in northeast Catalonia, close to the French border and about 45 minutes by car from the coast. In this mountainous area at the feet of he Pyrenees are a number of peaks taller than 1,000 metres, while in the landscape around Espolla villas you’ll find olive groves and vineyards.

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.

Relaxing stay

5 of 5
A lovely little apartment with a beautiful pool in a rural location. The nearby town of Garriguella has a couple of restaurants, shops, a pharmacy, a bar and a wonderful cooperative serving great food too. Easy drives down to the coast and to the mountains make this a super location.

Great location for a family holiday

5 of 5
A great villa in a beautiful, quiet and secure location. A large, well maintained garden with a 12m pool that our kids loved, great amenities and a host who was friendly and helpful. The beds and bedrooms are comfortable (with plenty of hangers in the wardrobes), the indoor living area large and spacious and the kitchen is a decent size and well equipped. Plenty of seating outside at mealtimes for 8 (might be a bit more of a squeeze if you have to eat indoors). Located a short distance from Peralada, a village with enough going on to make for an interesting walk, though you'll need a car if you want to go anywhere else. We had a great time and it's highly recommended. PS Who's going to sleep in the secret bedroom?
