Make a holiday cottage in Riudarenes your home away from home

Fitting for this location, holiday homes in Riudarenes are something special, displaying lots of period detail and surrounded by spacious grounds complete with private pools and outdoor barbecues.  

Things to do

-Relaxation: Riudarenes is in area known for its thermal activity, so there are lots of places to visit to get the benefits of the local water's salubrious mineral content and to indulge in some spa treatments and pampering. There are day spas at Caldes de Malavella a few minutes by car to the east, which are also connected to the PGA Catalunya Golf Course, rated among Spain’s top courses.  

-Hiking and cycling: Riudarenes is in Selva, a part of Catalonia with many inland waterways, which serve as picturesque terrain for walks and bike rides. There’s a designated set of “Water Routes”, with a wide array of trails guiding visitors past rivers, next to lakes and through forests. Medieval chapels, waterfalls and verdant farmland are just some of the sights to admire along the way.

-Cuisine: One of the best ways to encounter the rich culinary traditions of this part of Catalonia is to visit the many food fairs and celebrations that take place throughout the year. There are events for the mushroom harvest, hazlenuts, wild boar and cava wine across the surrounding Selva Comarca alone. Local cuisine centres on seafood and meats like pork and beef. Girona to the north is home to Roca, held by many critics as the world’s best restaurant.  

-Girona: This city is a must for anyone who likes historic architecture. The ensemble of medieval churches, civic buildings, homes and defensive structures is truly something to behold. The Gothic Basilica of Sant Feliu has a distinctive, narrow bell-tower and dates to the 1300s. The southern side of Girona’s historic defensive walls are still standing, and have a walkway with far-reaching views of the city.  

-Coast: Lloret de Mar is the easiest Mediterranean resort to get to from Riudarenes. Here there are eight fabulous beaches, each with something different to offer. For all the hallmarks of a Costa Brava resort, look no further than Lloret’s main beach, which is more than a kilometre in length and fringed by superb amenities, with a wide choice of watersports offered right on the beachfront. More out of the way is Canyells, a stunning bay enclosed by pine-covered cliffs.

Nice and quiet place to stay

5 of 5
Peter, the owner organized the whole process well and sent a lot of information, he answered quickly for every additional question. Well maintained apartment, equipped with the holidaymaker in mind (I was very pleased with the selection of the traveling books). We chose this apartment as a base to discover Catalonia: part of GR-92, Tossa de Mar, Girona, Besalu, Figueres etc. This property is located in a quiet, residential neighbourhood so it was perfect for us to rest after the long and active days. All of the family loved to stay here and the layout of this apartment is great (well-separated bedrooms, good-sized bathroom, living room at the centre of the flat, my favourite was the terrace, the children liked the balcony). The apartment was very clean and comfortable.
