It makes Valles Oriental holiday homes especially versatile, appealing to all kinds of holidaymakers – those who want to take cultural or gastronomic tours, active tourists who’d like to scale the peaks at Montseny or La Mola, or families who can’t resist the lure of sun, sea and sand. Whatever your plans, cottages in Valles Oriental serve as a peaceful retreat, thoughtfully appointed with today’s conveniences, with many also providing relaxing gardens and private pools.

Things to do

-Local heritage. The modernism movement, which took place at the turn of the 20th Century, furnished the Valles Oriental area with some fabulous architecture. Impressive examples can be seen in Granollers, Cardedeu, La Garriga and Figaro-Montmany. You can even follow the Ruta Raspall, a route that takes in the best local works of the architect Manuel Joaquim Raspall i Mayol, who was very active in the area in the early 20th Century.

-Outdoor recreation. Valles Oriental is a low-lying area, but you won’t be far from some beautiful hills. The Ruta Els 3 Monts (route of the three mountains) passes right through the area. It links the legendary Montserrat with La Mola and Montseny, on a course that is 100 kilometres in length and broken down into six stages. What makes the trail special is the landscape, which changes slowly as you pass from peak to peak.

-Gastronomy. There are more than 30 markets across the region, where you can purchase seasonal fresh produce as well as locally-crafted artisan products. Valles Oriental has been a corridor for travellers for millennia, and this has made the area open to new ideas. Many of the best restaurants here serve traditional Catalan cuisine, but with modern twists. Key local products include Alella wine, white beans, olive oil and a sausage made exclusively in the town of La Garriga.

-Coast. The coastline north of Barcelona has a fantastic infrastructure – gorgeous sandy beaches are complemented by vibrant resort towns, home to great restaurants and all the shops you could need. There are also golf courses, the nearest being Llavanera near Mataro. One of the best and nearest beaches can be found at Calella, which has Blue Flag status, as does El Masnou.

-Barcelona. Great road and public transport links from Valles Oriental mean there’s no excuse not to visit one of Europe’s most dynamic and stylish cities. For shopping expeditions there’s nowhere like it, with everything from one-off boutiques in Gracia to plush fashion houses in Eixample. Sights and culture are abundant, but the many outlandish works of modernist architect Antoni Gaudí are a must.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      We picked this place because it was very reasonable, on the coast, close to the railway station and situated between Barcelona and girona. We had a hire car and there is parking available in a secure garage with steps down to the apartment. It was a good clean apartment which was open plan with living room leading to balcony, kitchen, double bedroom and bathroom (bath, shower, and also a washing machine) Kitchen had everything you needed including induction hob and combo oven/microwave/grill. It is about 20 mins in the car to the montmelo gran prix, 40 mins to Barcelona and 45 mins to girona (highly recommend) The apartment is ideally situated with a 2 min walk to the beach, and 2 min walk to the town (without the noise) Typically a Catalan town with a lovely Uraguay reaturant (media Luz) which we highly recommend! And other restaurants as well as cafe bars, fresh fish, meat, fruit and veg and bakeries! Perfect if you want to self cater with also nights out! The beach at the next town is particularly good with beach bars serving excellent food. Thank you to mark the owner for his good communication and helpfulness and Owners friend for helping us on arrival and departure
