Make a holiday cottage in Monells your home away from home

Monells holiday homes are in and around a gorgeous medieval village amid idyllic countryside, so if you’re searching HomeAway for an unspoiled setting for rural tourism then this destination could be perfect for you. A short way from the Costa Brava, Monells holiday cottages are historic, built from limestone, and with lots of genuine features like towers, vaulted ceilings and wooden beams. Private pools complete the sense of luxury, making sure your downtime here will be a soothing complement to the thrilling array of activities available all around Monells holiday accommodation.

Things to do

-Local heritage. The small village of Monells merits a walking trip to see arched alleys, beautiful ensemble of old stone buildings and it’s sleepy main square. A few kilometres west of Monells is the national historic-artistic monument, Peratallada. This small town is also famed for its medieval heritage, taking the form of charming stone passageways, an 11th Century castle and original rutted streets.

-Walks. From Monells you can join the PR-C 103, a 14-kilometre circular hiking route that weaves its way into the neighbouring Gavarres mountain range, reaching the summit of Puig de’ Arques, the tallest peak in the area, with magnificent views. For more information about the many scenic local walks you could consult the tourism office in La Bisbal.

-Beaches. The part of the Costa Brava closest to Monells has some of Spain’s best beaches. See Pals, loved for its two-kilometre stretch of fine, golden sand. It’s a beach that appeals to teenage beach-bums and families with younger children in tow. You can come here for windsurfing, kitesurfing, or any number of beach sports. Just up from there is L’Escala, which also boasts a large Greco-Roman archaeological site.

-Gastronomy. Next to its countryside and beaches, the Costa Brava is a destination with a vibrant food culture, home to more than 2,500 restaurants. In Girona there’s El Celler de Can Roca, with three Michelin stars, and rated as one of the world’s top 50 restaurants. Traditional recipes include arroz negro, which is rice simmered with cuttlefish, prawns and died black with squid ink. Turnips are grown in various parts of northern Catalonia, and are combined with duck and game.

-Girona. Girona is the closest major city, and undoubtedly warrants a sight-seeing expedition. There’s a noteworthy cathedral, hundreds of metres of original fortifications and the grey-stoned 14th Century Collegiate Church of Sant Feliu, which is a staggering feat of medieval Gothic architecture. On the banks of the Onyar River is another unique feature – colourful multi-storey houses best-viewed from the city’s bridges.

Weather in Monells

There’s a warm Mediterranean climate in this area of Catalonia. If you’re at a holiday cottage in Monells in July then rainy days will be few and far between, and temperatures during the day will normally get up to 29 degrees. As the season progresses there’s a bit more rainfall, which culminates during October, the wettest month of the year. Despite the cooler temperatures in winter clear skies are a year-round feature – there are almost a thousand more hours sunshine per year than in London.

Travel to Monells

Girona-Costa Brava Airport (GRO) is the nearest international airport to Monells. It’s a hub for one important low-cost airline, which offers a whole host of routes from the UK. Visiting a holiday home in Monells it would be a good idea to hire a car, as the airport is about 35 kilometres from the village and public transport options are in short supply. By road you can follow the AP-7 northwards past the city of Girona, taking exit no.6 and joining c-66 and then the GIV-6701 on the way to Corça.

Area is beautiful. The house is very comfortable, large but cozy. Pool and bathtub pure heaven. The views mesmerising. And Joan was a great host. A week to remember.

Amazing House

5 of 5
What an amazing property! We thought it looked fabulous from the listing but the reality was even better. A huge, really well appointed house with big solid furniture and lovely, individual, interesting pieces of decor. The house was scrupulously clean, luxurious hand soaps and large, fluffy towels were provided. The bed linen was good quality and pool towels available too. The kitchen had plenty of fridge space for our large family group of 8 adults and 6 children (aged from 10 to 17) and every need was catered for in terms of kitchen equipment. BBQ coals and wood were provided and we enjoyed a wonderful BBQ on the upper terrace, which has masses of comfortable seating. Mark and Outi are just perfect hosts, giving helpful advice, sorting any queries really quickly and suggesting great places to visit - and the region is full of great places to visit - though we would not have tired of staying at the house for the full week. The pool was ideal and there are various games tables, a snooker table as well as board games ... or just sit on the terrace over the pond and listen to the fish bobbing for their food. We can not recommend this place highly enough!
