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.

Looks exactly like on the pictures and one can really feel like at home in there. It is very clean and the view from the balcony is amazing. It is well equipped- with books, games and even kids toys left at the tenants disposal. Be aware that towels/linen are not included in the rent price- owner remarked that it is mentioned in the ad, but I had a look and cannot see it anywhere. If you want a set you need to pay extra- which is fine as long as it is clearly stated and you can make an informed decision...We've paid 30 euros on top of the rent for towels for 2 people. The building is located on a rather steep hill and there are few flights of stairs with no lift, so people with mobility issues should look elsewhere. Due to the hectic schedule we did not have time to use the pool, but it looks very inviting. Owner- Rebecca- is very welcoming. I do recommend this place to anyone who wants to feel like they're staying at the friends house:)

We had views to the sea and enjoyed having a dip in the pool. The wi-fi was not reliable. The apartment was very clean and had all we needed. Thank you to Raul
