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.

The description was perfect--but more to the point, the owners are invested in making the stay as comfortable as possible. We soaked in the terrace sun and swam in the glorious sea everyday-- and were perfectly located for hikes, swims, kayaking, snorkelling and all sorts of sea sports. The apartment is carefully designed to make the most of the incredible landscape. I can't wait to return.

It is perfect for a large family or 2 families because of the clever lay out of the rooms. Beautiful beaches are just 15 mins drive away with some amazing coves just 20 mins away. The local village has everything you need, larger supermarkets are 10 mins drive. Mark & Wendy are such friendly people and will go out of their way to assist you. We will definitely return! :)
