Make a holiday villa in Osona your home away from home

Osona villas are set in a beautiful landscape, at the midway point between the Mediterranean and the Pyrenees, where verdant plains meet rocky, forested hills. While based at an Osona holiday home you could track down important historical sites, visit mineral springs, scale steep hills and take excursions to the beautiful Costa Brava and Barcelona. Villas in Osona are large, perfect if you're planning a holiday with extended family or a large group of friends. The buildings are outwardly rustic, with stone walls and wooden beams, but they're furnished for modern holidaymakers and offer comforts like private pools

Things to do

-Regional heritage. Osona contains an exciting array of monuments dating to many different eras. In Vic for instance, be sure to see the fabulous Roman Temple, which dates back to the 2nd Century and remained undiscovered for hundreds of years as it had been incorporated into a medieval castle. Osona is also packed with romanesque buildings dating betweeen the 1000s and 1200s, with 90 in to be found here in total, and designated tourism routes set up to help you get to them.

-Outdoor recreation. In a relatively small area, Osona has a rich diversity of terrains, from pre-Pyrenean mountains to low-lying plains to mineral springs. Walking routes will help you get to natural beauty spots and pieces of heritage that you might otherwise overlook. Three long-distance trails pass through Osona, and there's also a catalogue of smaller circular trails, like PR C-43, which starts in the village of Tona and takes in stately country houses, natural springs and a medieval hermitage.

-Gastronomy. Osona has been linked for many years to pig farming, an industry that is evident in the regional cuisine. Pork and cured sausages like fuet, bisbe, somalla, botifarra and llonganissa are of the highest quality in this part of Catalonia. Mushroom season takes place in autumn, with numerous species of wild mushroom growing in Osona's forests - this is also when black truffles are harvested locally.

-Coast. The northern end of the Costa Brava is where the coastline becomes a little more rugged and picturesque. Here the beaches are normally part of villages rather than full-scale resorts, lending them a more intimate character. Tossa de Mar, about an hour from Vic, marks the start of a series of rocky coves with calm and transparent waters.

-Barcelona. This city is within driving distance, making it a wonderful option for a day trip. You could come here for the world-class shopping, or to see famous sights like the Sagrada Familia basilica and Las Ramblas. There's also superb culture, exemplified by the many works of modernist architect Antoni Gaudi, and museums dedicated to artists like Joan Miro and Poblo Picasso.

Weather in Osona

Osona holiday accommodation is in a region with a classic Mediterranean climate. Here, summers last from May to September, and are for the most part warm and dry. Throughout the season daily highs get up to the mid-20s and often higher. Rain is infrequent, but by late-September it becomes a little more common. Temperatures soften as the end of the year approaches, and by December an average day sees highs in the upper-teens, and lows a little way above zero at night.

Travel to Osona

At about forty minutes from the town of Vic, Girona Airport (GRO) is the easiest way to get to holiday homes in Osona from abroad. The airport is busiest in summer, when it has plenty of links to the UK, mostly with budget airlines. From Girona, simply take the C-25 west towards Vic. The other airport in the region is Barcelona El Prat (BCN), which is about an hour south of Osona. As one of Spain's largest airports this destination handles a wider choice of routes from Britain.

                                                              Great stay, super relaxing

                                                              We found the villa very well equipped and perfect for our needs. It was very spacious, with room for all of us to eat and sit together, or hide away in peace. The kids loved the pool and there were plenty of loungers, fresh towels and outdoor seating. We loved the area, there were loads of fantastic mountain walks starting from the village. We would definitely return. The house is right in the village yet very private and secure for our young ones. Barcelona and Costa Brava beautiful beaches were great for days out, though we did need the car. The local restaurants were great especially the Chalet Coromina - very interesting food! and just across the road. We have no hesitation in recommending the villa to others.
