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

                                                                                                      5 of 5

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 house is like an old fishermans cottage but in the centre of town. Lots of historic original features with charm and style. Bedrooms are all good sizes with 2 bathrooms. Decent sized outside space. Garden soft furnishings could do with replacing with the garden tidied up. The house is moments from the restaurants and shops but in a quiet pedestrian street. Parking is a couple of minutes walk away as is the castle. Begur has lots of fantastic walking trails to beaches and along the coast. Great holiday.
