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.

The villa was everything we expected . The villa and pool were clean and plenty of room for us. The plot was modest with neighbours both sides but privacy was not a problem. Massive balcony with great views which they could make more of but no criticism of the villa or owners Marc and Vera who were friendly and attentive throughout. Lots of info in the villa on places to visit and beautiful coastline within 10km. Wonderful view of the surrounding hills and lots of trails to explore if you are nosey like me! For mid October the weather was pretty good. Hot enough for sun lounging but temperature not too oppressive. Big electric storm which was amazing to watch from the Big villa windows. Resorts pretty quiet this time of year but still enough cafes and businesses open unless the resorts are very small. Would definitely come back, especially out of season.

Lovely outside space, pool is a good size for swimming. Hot tub was a very welcome addition with stunning views. BBQ area was very impressive. Kitchen had all you could want or need from a holiday rental - generous supply of glasses and crockery. It is on the side of a quite steep hill so might not be suitable for the less mobile but has a good driveway rather than off road parking. We had no problems with a guest in her late 70's so don't be put off by other comments about safety. Good hosts, without being intrusive. Ready to offer help and always friendly. Would look forward to going back for another stay.
