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.

Comfortable apartment with beautiful sea views

5 of 5
Our first impression of the apartment was how bright and spacious it was. Everything was as described on HomeAway. We had a really comfortable stay in the apartment. Michel contacted us before we left home to advise us that the normal route given by satnav although the shortest route took you along a very narrow road. I'm pleased we followed his advice! The route by Sa Tuna and then to La Borna area where the property is situated is much easier. Michel was an excellent host and made our stay as comfortable as possible. We visited Girona but because the weather was sunny and warm we didn't make any other longer journeys. We visited the small bays and beaches around Begur and always found a cafe for a coffee. Visiting Pals and Peratallada were really enjoyable. We also watched the arrival of the fishing boats back into Palamos followed by the sale of their catch. I hope we will return in the not too distant future.

Villa Dagmar - Club Villa Mar

5 of 5
Kleine gemütliche Villa mit Meer Blick - Wir waren 2. Wochen in Tossa de Mar, der Service und freundlichkeit der Mitarbeiter -Top, Villa super Sauber, Der Pool regelmässig gereinigt - haben bereits wieder gebucht. Von anfang an wurden wir durch unseren Residenten betreut - auch bei Autopanne war er sehr hilfreich, er kam auch regelmässig und reinigte den Pool. Ruhige Umgebung, der nächste Große Geschäft war 5km von uns entfernt. Strand Sauber und ruhig - nur der Weg dorthin ist Steil. Club Villamar und Die Villa "Dagmar" kann ich nur weiter empfehlen - wer schöne Natur, super Strand und abnedliche Ruhe sucht ist hier perfekt aufgehoben. Die Buchung verlief beide Male schnell und unkomplizierzt, empfehle Euch direkt über die Internetseite zu Buchen.
