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.

Excellent accommodation

5 of 5
The villa was lovely and had everything we needed to enjoy a relaxing holiday. Lovely en-suite bathrooms in both master bedrooms. The garden and pool area were fantastic and well maintained. We had a wonderful time and highly recommend the villa. The local area has much to offer with beautiful beaches and great restaurants.

It is a wonderful place to stay. The views are breathtakingly beautiful.

4 of 5
The views from the apartment are fantastic. The apartment is basic, but has all you need to have a very enjoyable stay. Gustavo is very easy to deal with. He accommodated our very late arrival.
