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.

A very pleasant stay.

Very close to the beach, nice view, several pleasant hiking paths. Fresh fish at the harbor. The appartment is luminous, big and very well equipped. We had a warm welcome. We enjoyed our lovely stay at Llança ! :)

Lovely old house

5 of 5
We loved this place! It had everything we needed for our 3 week stay. 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 most Perfect House . Ever.

5 of 5
Just returned from an incredible 3 day stay in this stunning house. Situated high in the hills in the Puig Rom area overlooking Canyelles ensures you have the most incredible views over the bay. A 3 minute drive and you are back in the centre of Roses where you will find a number of bars restaurants cafes and lots of shops. Beaches close by range from pretty Canyelles/Almadrava to the main beaches of Roses and Santa Margarita. Or you could take a short drive and visit the many other pretty beaches . The house is very big with a a big garage for some cars on the ground floor and two additional private parking spaces outside. You enter the house and a lift will take you directly into the property via a private key access which is very special. A beautiful living/ dining area looks out over the stunning views of the bay and a kitchen that has all high quality fittings and fixtures make preparing even just your morning coffee a treat. Frederic the owner has made sure you have everything and I mean everything you could need . There are lots of plates a full range of glasses ranging from a glass of bubbly on the balcony to smooth glass of brandy after a nice meal. Big dining table inside and outside ensures all the family/friends can relax and enjoy meals together . There are nice sized bedrooms with comfortable quality mattress's ensure restful nights. these are situated on the the lower floors with plenty of showers/loos and a full bathroom off the master suite so great if you are large family/group. There is a laundry cupboard that houses a top quality samsung washine machine/a hoover/iron and board. There is also hairdryers provided to save on luggage space too. Outside on the top of the house is beautiful private pool and large sunbathing area again with amazing views that I dont think you would even want to venture to the beach its that nice. It even comes complete with a top quality outdoor shower. There are plenty of comfortable sun loungers/parasol to enjoy lazy days in the sun. On the balcony leading off the living area there is a lovely seating area and large dining table along with a remote control canopy with lighting that is perfect for sitting out in the evening enjoying the sunsets and stars. When you arrive you are met by the lovely Felix who will ensure you know how everything works you have everything you need and is also on hand in case you need anything during your stay. This house is truly exceptional cannot wait to return.
