The Gala apartments sit overlooking the promenade and the golden sandy beach of Tamariu and only a few steps from a good selection of restaurants serving an array of tempting tapas, seafood and local Catalan specialities, the perfect spot for long leisurely lunches or relaxing evening meals, enjoying the cuisine and soaking up the views.
Children will enjoy the proximity of the beach with its blue flag status, golden sands and clear sparkling waters. In either direction one can walk along the Cami de Ronda, the footpath which runs the length of this beautiful coastline.
The resort of Tamariu has a selection of shops catering for your holiday needs and unless you want to explore the local area, a car is not really necessary for your holiday.

We have returned from our trip to Tamariu, and we just wanted to give you some feedback on our experience.
We have been on a number of holidays with our young family, where we organised the accommodation ourselves, as we did using your accommodation, and I have to say, this one was the most positive experience we have had.
We had a really lovely time, it was a perfect place for the children, a really lovely spot, so too are the surrounding beaches. Getting to your apartment was so easy with the directions given, and the accommodation was lovely, perfect size, very well kept, plenty of towels and linen, lots of kitchen equipment and even a dishwasher and washing machine! We were delighted! The restaurants on the promenade were lovely, as was the downstairs pizzeria, and everyone we met was helpful and friendly.
If we decide to return to the Costa Brava, and Tamariu, we would most definitely like to stay at your place again, and would be happy to recommend your accommodation to anyway that requests it.
Many thanks again, and best regards,
T and C
Je vous envoie ce petit mail pour vous dire que nous avons adoré Tamariu et le charme fou de votre appartement !!
Nous avons passé une très agréable semaine et nous n'avons qu'une seule envie : revenir très vite dans cette région et peut-être même chez vous !!
Merci encore de l'accueil sur place, les personnes de l'agence à Tamariu sont très accueillantes.
Nous sommes bien conscients que nous avons profité d'un tarif très intéressant pour cette location fin avril.
L'an prochain, nos enfants 12 et 15 ans seront libérés plus tôt pour les vacances et nous rêvons déjà de revenir la dernière semaine du mois de juin chez vous pour profiter de la mer. ( même si nous nous sommes baignés lors de notre séjour !!!)
Dans la perspective d'une pré-réservation très tôt dans l'anné pour la dernière semaine du mois de juin 2014, quel en serait le tarif ?
Merci encore pour votre accueil, nous sommes très heureux d'avoir découvert cet endroit !!

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.
Named after the tamarisk trees that surrounded its bays, Tamariu is a charming small resort with a crescent of golden sandy beach, which is set on a sparkling bay between majestic tree clad hillsides. It is popular with families, beach lovers and those seeking water sports, walkers, cyclists and divers, and is renowned for its excellent fish restaurants which are set on the promenade overlooking the beach and sea.
Holidays here are relaxed, lunches are long and the evenings are late but fairly quiet. The paseo is the prelude to the evening meal with longer walks along the coast for the more serious hiker, along the ancient Cami de Ronda exploring the beautiful scenery and the many coves.
There are many local festivals in the surrounding towns and villages – the main event being the Catalan Festa de St Joan on 23 and 24 June which is marked all over the region with bonfires and firework parties.
