We have returned from our European holiday and I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed staying in your apartment, Les Voltes in Calella.
Sadly my mum died a week before we left for Spain, but the apartment was just what I needed - the location is fantastic and I enjoyed the hustle and bustle that was always around under our balcony. Took my mind off things.
The views to the sea are gorgeous and the decor of the apartment was exactly as it is in the photos.
The kitchen was well equipped and the washing machine across the corridor was most welcome.
Oh, and the Mark Knopfler concert was very special - what a setting. We are going to keep our eyes open for the line up of the 2014 Cap Roig festival to see if there is an artist we would like to watch next year.
L and A C

The Costa Brava/Catalonia/Barcelona region
Catalonia, or perhaps better known as the Catalunya region, is the area of northern Spain bordering the Mediterranean just to the south of the French border. This ancient Kingdom once extended from near Narbonne in France down to Barcelona and eastwards to include the Balearic Islands. The area was later divided between France and Spain but even today it remains fiercely Catalan, as can be seen by the numerous red and yellow striped flags proudly displayed.
Perhaps Catalunya greatest gifts to the world have been its artists, Joan Miró and Salvador Dali are both from this region, but today's artists, the chefs of Catalunya, lead the world with their own inimitable styles and the rather exceptional cuisine, demonstrated originally by Ferran Adria of El Bulli fame and today perpetuated by the Roca brothers in Girona.
For the holidaymaker this is the Costa Brava, known throughout the world for its scenic beauty, aquamarine seas and golden sandy beaches. The most attractive area of the coast is the small area around Palafrugell which stretches from Pals and Begur in the north, south through Fornells, Aiguablava, Tamariu, Llafranc, to Calella de Palafrugell. This dramatic coastline abounds with beautiful bays, coves and headlands, with sandy beaches washed by sparkling seas, and interspersed by glistening white villages, each very different, the perfect locations for relaxing holidays.
Inland, the countryside is mainly agricultural with some wonderful timeless villages like Peratallada and Ullastret set against a distant backdrop of the ever present Pyrenees. Visit Pals, the walled medieval city; Bisbal famed for its production of ceramics; Torroella de Montgri with its Gothic palaces, courtyards and narrow streets nestling beneath the Castell de Montgri, and the spectacular gardens of Cap Roig. There are various markets to explore, vineyards to visit and slightly further away the Dali Museum in Figueres; whilst the vibrant city of Barcelona is less than 2 hours away.
For the more energetic there are no fewer than 5 golf courses nearby; you can play tennis; follow a number of planned walking and cycling itineraries; go scuba diving; enjoy all manner of water sports; hire a boat and explore the coast; or just relax soaking up the sun on one of the beautiful beaches for which the area is renowned.
Calella de Palafrugell
Calella de Palafrugell is an attractive resort, well known for its various rocky coves, sandy beaches and excellent fish restaurants overlooking the sparking sea. Calella is popular with families, beach lovers and those seeking water sports.
Holidays here are relaxed, lunches are long and the evenings are late. The paseo is the prelude to the evening meal with longer walks along the coast for the more serious hiker, one of the most popular is around the nearby headland to the next resort, Llafranc and up to its lighthouse, El Far, for amazing views over the whole bay or south along the 'Cami de Ronda' to the gardens of Cap Roig.
There are many local festivals in the surrounding towns and villages - on 23/24 June the Festa de St Joan is marked all over the region with bonfires and firework parties; in July and August the Cantada d' Havaneres musical festivals and the annual International Jazz Festival held in the beautiful gardens of Cap Roig just to the south of the resort.
