Make a holiday cottage in Riudarenes your home away from home

Holiday cottages in Riudarenes are set a few kilometres inland from the beaches of the Costa Brava, in a beautiful rural location, where there are rivers, traditional farms and quaint old villages. Walks, bike rides and cultural trips are all available close to Riudarenes holiday homes, but there’s also the added luxury of thermal spas and award-winning golf courses to enjoy. 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.    

Weather in Riudarenes

Around Riudarenes holiday cottages the climate is Mediterranean, entailing long, warm summers and moderate winters. The great thing about the summer weather on the Costa Brava is that breezes from the north help to temper the heat. Between May and September the weather is ideal for trips to the beach, reaching daily highs between 24 and 30°C. Winters are rarely particularly cold, but a light jacket will come in handy, with average highs of 12°C in January.

Beautiful villa - great garden and location

5 of 5
This property is in a peaceful location surrounded by the Gavarre hills. 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.

RESTFUL HOLIDAY

5 of 5
Beautiful villa with the most amazing views. Perfect for a relaxing family holiday. Only a few minutes drive to the local supermarket and restaurants. Pool was a good size and the villa was very clean and comfortable.

Truly fabulous villa, unforgettable holiday!

5 of 5
Our family had the most wonderful holiday here. We felt at home immediately and were delighted at how well equipped the property was. Alan and Keely have really thought about everything you could possibly need for a relaxing Villa holiday, there were so many lovely home comforts and extras throughout the villa that made a big difference to us. Other villa holiday homes we've stayed in have never shown this level of dedication to their visitors. We really appreciated the care and time they've taken to ensure that guests have a fabulous time. We cannot recommend it highly enough.
