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.

The villa had been left in a spotless condition, the lovely swimming pool heated ( We swam nearly every day), the central heating was on and a welcoming fire lit. The delightful owners had also put up Christmas decorations and a Christmas tree for us and were there to welcome us and to explain how the various services worked. The lay out of the villa works well, the grandparents sleeping in the double room on the lower floor over looking the swimming pool and the rest of the family upstairs in the other three bedrooms. We ate out for most lunches in lovely restaurants in surrounding villages and had dinner in the villa. The vlla was well equipped considering eight of us were eating in. My wife however felt there could have been a few more smaller dishes for serving tapas etc. In all the villa lived up to its website description, although the bedrooms appeared to be smaller than the photgraphs suggested, nevertheless perfectly adequate. We had particulaly good lunches in restaurants over looking the beaches in Llafranc and Tamariu which are very close to Begur and also further afield a great lunch at La Terrasa in Sant Marti d'Empuries further up the coast. We were lucky with the weather upto 17 degrees with sunshine most days, but quite cold at night. We would certainly recommend the villa and would like to thank Eloi and Ingrid for providing for us so well.

The house is well equipped including a table tennis table and swimming pool toys for children. The gardens are beautiful with a variety of seating in the sun and shaded areas. There are a variety of beaches (driving distance) and towns to visit and Barcelona is a day trip away. I would highly recommend this villa.

The villa layout was ideal as our friends had their own space at pool level and our family were easily accommodated on the middle floor. The villa was very clean and well equipped we had meals together and bbq's on the main kitchen level, plenty of seating for large groups. Kids loved table tennis and pool competitions and swimming pool is huge. Beach access via steps beside the villa only ten minutes down but slightly longer coming back up depending on your fitness. Lovely walk to next (nudist) beach which has some water sports banana boat and water skiing, easy drive to estartit for good diving and jet skis. 1hr drive to Dali museum and Girona, 2 hrs to Barcelona airport. There's a nice hotel - la convent at end of street 2 mins walk and half a dozen bar/restaurants at the shingle beach. Begur is more of a walk (without a footpath) 5 mins in car, lovely village, they even put on a festival for us - festa d'indians. We would definitely return to this villa, also thanks to Juan who made us very welcome. If I had to be picky, kids complained wifi wasn't good but I saw that as a plus!
