Make a holiday cottage in Gironès your home away from home

Gironès holiday cottages are ideal for those who want a getaway with exceptional natural landscapes, storied history and an almost endless list of things to do. Holiday homes in Gironès tend to be traditional stone buildings with antique furniture and set in large grounds. Complementing the historical authenticity of the accommodation are delightful modern comforts like private pools and modern domestic conveniences. The Costa Brava and its sublime beaches are also within easy reach of cottages in Gironès, while there are also plenty of options for outdoor recreation in the vicinity amid spectacular upland scenery.

Things to do

-History: The city of Girona is one of Catalonia's cultural highlights. The historical centre was laid out in the middle ages, and in many places has changed little. The southern parts of the city’s ancient ramparts can be explored on foot for excellent views. The iconic 10th-century church of Sant Feliu next to the Onyar River is stunning and is a famous example of Catalan Gothic architecture.  

-Outdoor fun: Gironès is ideal for those of an active bent, with a mountain of adventure on offer. For those who want to get out into nature there are opportunities for kayaking, cycle tours, quad-biking, hiking and climbing, all facilitated by local companies. There are also two prestigious golf courses in the area, including the PGA Catalunya resort, as well a nine-hole pitch and putt course at Fornells de la Selva.

-Natural scenery: The Costa Brava is loved for its rugged landscapes, and in Gironès, tourists will have the beautiful pine-covered hills of the Campdorà to the east. With a little exploring, visitors will encounter sanctuaries and hermitages deep in the forest which date back hundreds of years. Meanwhile to the northwest of the comarca is la Garrotxa, Spain’s largest volcanic zone. The volcanoes here are all extinct, but their distinctive cones remain and create some very memorable landscapes.

-Gastronomy: Modern Catalan cuisine has won great acclaim in recent years, and this corner of the region is especially vaunted. Girona is home to Roca, which is held by those in-the-know to be one of the best restaurants in the world. Traditional fare is satisfying and is based on local produce—olives, olive oil, an abundance of vegetables as well as fish freshly caught in the Mediterranean are at the core of the local diet.  

-Coast: The Costa Brava is an easy option for a family day by the beach, and there some fantastic resorts to track down with perfect Blue Flag beaches. Tossa de Mar has the stunning Platja de Fenals, while Castell-Platja d’Aro boasts no fewer than eight beaches, ranging from long stretches of golden sand to shaded coves next to perfectly clear waters.  

Weather in Gironès

Gironès holiday accommodation is in a Mediterranean climate zone. Summer heat is tempered slightly by a breeze that comes off the Pyrenees, which also makes winters a little cooler. Highs in July peak at around 29°C, and precipitation is infrequent throughout the season until September. The warm weather lasts until mid-October when things start to get a bit milder. Winters in Gironès can be cool, but sub-zero conditions are unusual apart from on the highest ground. A typical winter’s day gets highs in the low-teens.

Travel to Gironès

Visitors can reach a Gironès holiday home from the UK via Girona Airport (GRO). This airport handles flights from the UK with a number of low-cost carriers, and although the majority of routes are only open during the summer, there are still plenty of year-round links. No part of the Gironès comarca is more than half an hour from the airport and the road network is wide-ranging. The A-2 autopista forms the spine of Gironès, with a host of provincial roads branching off it. At the airport, travellers can also catch six bus routes serving all parts of the Costa Brava and Empordà.

The apartment is spacious, well equipped, comfortable and clean and is located in a lovely old area of Girona. The only minor issue was that the bar below the apartment was noisy to just beyond midnight on the first night (it was a public holiday the next day). Rosanna was an extremely helpful host, who kept in touch and even booked a restaurant table for us. The person who showed us round, Xana, went out of her way to show us where we could buy basic provisions after we arrived. We would thoroughly recommend this apartment.

This big Villa is very comfortable and has air conditioning throughout much appreciated in the hot summer and offers everything you need! We had a great time and the owner, Ms Carme, though she does not speak English, is very helpful. A great experience all in all ! Malcom C

The place is absolutely ideal for children, there is so much for them to do - swimming pool, trampoline, swings, football goals, volleyball net, basketball hoop, a huge garden (more like a field!) for them to run around in. The garage, which is the entire ground floor of the house, is enormous, and is a paradise for children! There's table tennis, table football, pool, ride-on toys and so much more. There's even a sauna, though with the heat of the summer this wasn't something we used! The owners really have thought of everything a family might need. The house itself is really well equipped, at no point was there anything we needed that the house didn't have! It feels like a home rather than a holiday house, which was exactly what we wanted. The temperature of the house is excellent. There is air conditioning throughout, and it was a particularly hot week when we were there, but we were always totally comfortable in the house. The location is great, as there is easy access to so many beautiful places in Catalonia. We visited Figueres, Banyoles, Cadaqués, Palafrugell, all of which are an easy distance away. It's true that the house is situated close to a main road, but the property and grounds are well sheltered by tall trees and it is totally enclosed with a strong, sturdy gate at the entrance to the property. Inside the house, there is no noise from the road. All in all we had a great holiday here and would gladly return another year. We were all disappointed to come home and get back to reality!
