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.

Lovely en-suite bathrooms in both master bedrooms. The garden and pool area were fantastic and well maintained. We had a wonderful time and highly recommend the villa. The local area has much to offer with beautiful beaches and great restaurants.
