AREA

Tordera is a Catalan town with a river flowing through it and with the Romanesque Church of Saint Stephen situated in the town centre.

Located within approximately 64km of Barcelona and 36km of Girona on the edge of the Montnegre Natural Park and on the divide between the province of Barcelona and the Costa Brava.

From the property there are stunning views of Montseny, the highest mountain range south of the Pyrenees. Whether it is summer or winter this view is something special to behold.

Within approximately 8 kilometres is the crystal blue sea of the Mediterranean whilst being close to some large areas of natural beauty. Within a short drive away are some of the regions most picturesque towns and numerous immaculate sandy beaches.

The closest beach is approximately 15-20 minutes away in Blanes, where you will be able to enjoy more than four kilometres of sandy coastline. Blanes offers a number of restaurants and nightspots, as well as host of activities by day. There is a marina here where you can hire a boat to explore the rocky coastline, or you can even go snorkeling and diving. At Playa Sabanell there is a company that organizes boat excursions to various beaches in the area.

Blanes is home to the Castle of Sant Joan, which dates back to the 12th Century. At this landmark you can admire spectacular views of the coast, while inland is the Canon of Santa Maria Roca-rossa, a monastery, which was built in the 1100s. An attraction not to be missed is the Marimutra botanic garden with its spectacular views.

If you prefer to explore the stunning inland scenery close to Tordera, then head for the Montnegre Corredor Natural Park, which features a long stretch of the Catalonian coastal mountain range. It is a perfect place to enjoy a long walk, along which you will encounter cork, pine, and oak forests. Hortsavinya is a delightful medieval hermitage, nestled in this landscape.

The city of Girona is only half an hour north of Tordera. This beautiful city is known for its large medieval old town, enclosed by defensive walls and home to numerous historic buildings, as well as one of the largest Jewish quarters in Spain. The main sights here include the old town walls, the 14th Century Gothic Collegiate Church of Sant Feliu and the Romanesque Sant Pere de Galligants.

In Tordera you can expect beach weather from spring to late autumn. In July and August temperatures usually exceed 30 degrees and almost no rainfall at this time of the year. Winters here are mostly mild, with a little more rain, but plenty of sunny days as well.

Why Liam O'Sullivan chose Tordera

We wanted to be just far enough away from the main tourist towns especially in peak season when it does become incredibly busy, but at he same time we wanted to be close enough to enjoy the truly wonderful beaches that the Costa Brava has to offer. This one just about ticked all the boxes. The view was fantastic and the opportunity to landscape the exterior and have a pool built to our liking was just too irresistible to turn down. I have to admit though that we totally underestimated just how much work there was to be done!!

Little Gem!

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I rented this lovely small studio overlooking the mountains and pine trees. It was the perfect getaway for us to unwind and relax by the fabulous private pool. The studio is very clean and very well equipped (bed linen, shower towels and pool towels are also included). The hosts are a very friendly couple that live in the house above. They attended all our questions and recommended places for us to visit. The three big supermarkets and the town are a 5 minute drive, with plenty of space to park . We would highly recommend this place if you are looking for a peaceful getaway yet within a short drive of some beautiful beaches and nice restaurants.

Best part of our vacation

  • 5 of 5

When visiting Barcelona and you need to escape to a beautiful coastal city I would definitely recommend staying here. The unit was compact and comfortable and the property was absolutely beautiful. The owners of the property were exceptional. Because of their knowledge of the area we enjoyed parts of Spain we were not planning on visiting, but very pleased that we did. Just remember you need a car to drive to the train station (less than a 10 min drive) and from there it was about an hour train ride to Barcelona and even less time to other beautiful coastal cities like Girona and Blanes. Thank you Liam and Maite (of Tordera Parc) this was the best part of our vacation. Rita

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind comments Rita. I hope that the cruise went well and that you had a fantastic time. Our thoughts have been with you and Cris these past few days as we continue to read about the dreadful fires affecting parts of California.

Beautiful villa in a peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from 5 nights in Liam & Maite's stunning villa and are already considering returning next summer! The villa is a little slice of heaven, with beautifully tended grounds and an incredible private pool. There are various areas for you to sit, eat, relax and savour the beautiful views and the whole surrounding area is extremely peaceful & quiet. The studio itself has everything you need - an oven, microwave, fridge freezer etc plus a futuristic tv and comfortable sofa and coffee table area. Bath and pool towels are both provided and when we arrived Liam and Maite had prepared a thoughtful welcome pack of snacks, fruit and wine. The town of Tordera is a simple ten minute drive and has supermarkets and shops. We also spent a day by the sea in nearby Blanes which was a 20 minute drive and well worth it. Liam and Maite were extremely helpful, recommending various places to visit and eat out and made us feel at home straight away. We hope to return next summer and will also be recommending this beautiful villa to friends and family. Thanks again Liam & Maite!

High Quality

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a stay in the studio for a week in July and had a brilliant time.

Liam and Maite are great hosts, very friendly and always willing to offer help and advice on places to visit, local restaurants and the Catalan way of life. Although they live in the main house above they are discreet.

Although the studio is not particularly big, it is very well equipped and spotlessly clean. To be honest, in the summer time you are only ever going to use the room for sleeping and maybe cooking a meal, so the size is not really an issue.

The main thing that really impressed us was the outdoors set up. The gardens have been landscaped and terraced to an exceptional standard and the good sized swimming pool is a very welcome addition. There are superb views over to the distant mountains from the pool and terraces and the gardens are not really overlooked. There are several places to sit and have a drink or a meal on the terraces and there is the best barbecue I have ever seen.

Another thing we liked about the studio is that it is located a few miles away from the main tourist towns of Blanes, Lloret and Tossa so your stay will be quiet, but you can dip in and out of the busy towns and beaches as and when you want without having the 'full on' noise and bustle. As such you will need your own transport and the road links are excellent.

We would thoroughly recommend the studio to any couple or single traveller looking for the best of both worlds of the Costa Brava. The accommodation is high quality and the area is quiet with lovely views, yet the coast is only 15 minutes away by car.

Thank you very much Liam and Maite !

Man wird sehr freundlich/familär aufgenommen!

  • 5 of 5

Sehr gepflegtes Anwesen, viel Ruhe, schöner Garten + Pool! Die Gastgeber sind wahnsinnig fürsorglich, leihen beispielsweise bei Bedarf einen Insektenschutz, fragen bei kühlen Bedingungen ob man eine Zusatzdecke haben will und empfangen einen mit einem Essens-Starter Paket! Einziges Manko: Keine Klimaanlage sondern "nur" ein Ventilator.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Liam's place. He and his wife welcomed us with open arms and were very helpful and friendly. The place itself is amazing. The apartment is cosy and well equipped, including a futuristic television screen unlike you have ever seen before, and perfect for two people. The view and the pool (which is completely private) are amazing. There is also a barbecue. The apartment is well located, with a 5 minutes drive to supermarkets and a 15 to 30 minutes drive to the seaside at the Costa Brava. Car rental recommended for convenience. Great value for the price you pay.
