The Catalunia region
The Catalan coast 'Costa Brava' is well known for its wonderful beaches. Many are pretty little jewels, small and hidden away amongst beautiful rocky coves, while others like the golden sands in the bay of Roses on the north side of L´Escala stretch for mile after golden mile.
The 'Costa Brava' runs along the coast of the Catalan region of Girona. The capital, Girona, is a beautiful lively city of approximately 100,000 inhabitants. The city boasts some lovely architecture and has been called the little Venice of Spain with its pretty bridges and painted terraced town houses overlooking the river Onya. A couple of the cities historical sites well worth including in a visit are the Arabic baths and the Jewish quarter. A great panoramic view of the city can be gained by walking the top of the ancient defensive surrounding wall.
Culturally, the works of the artist Salvador Dalí are probably best known, and a visit to the museum of his work in Figueres, his home in Cadaques and his wife's castle in Puból are a must. The region has many other museums, festivals and exhibitions that are also well worth a visit.
Although the beaches may take much of the attention, Girona province possesses incredible diversity, friendly people and great food to offer. There are natural parks in the pre-Pyrenees, 40 minutes' drive from the coast, where you can walk to the top of a volcano in less than 30 minutes, or incredibly well preserved medieval towns which still host 'medieval markets' with the vendors dressed in traditional Catalan costume, selling locally produced artisan goods.
The area surrounding L'Escala the Emporda has been described as being like Tuscany; pretty towns with medieval centres built atop of hillocks looking out over a huge fertile plain covered with orchards, olive and lemon groves and vinyards.
The Emporda provides a fantastic place for cycling with well marked routes through quiet village where local restaurants and cafes serve 'Cuine Casolana' or real homemade food. On the subject of restaurants, don't forget that Catalunya was until recently the area with the most Michelin stars in the world, Girona was home to two of the worlds top 5 restaurants El Bulli which was voted best restaurant in the world 3 times before becoming a centre for Gastronomic excellence and El Celler De Can Roca which is now vying for the top spot. Many people come to the Girona region just to take advantage of the gastronomy but whether Michelin stars are in your budget or not there are fabulous restaurants to suit everyone's pocket.
A visit to Catalunya and the Costa Brava really is recommended and remember with temperatures around 25 degrees Celcius; April, May, June, September and October can be much more pleasant than the hot summer. Even the winter months are generally mild. Spring and Autumn are also a great time for golfers to take advantage of lower season green fees, many at a fraction of the equivalent UK courses fees to incredible venues like the Catalan PGA (40mins drive), Emporda (20mins), Pals beach (25mins), etc. Watersports fanatics can also avail of the lower season prices for courses and equipment hire at Club Mistral (10 minutes walk along the beach)
L´Escala is a small fishing town (famous for the best anchovies in the Mediteranian) to the north east of Catalunya on the southern edge of the Bay of Rosas, surrounded by sandy beaches. The Greeks and Romans both created their first settlements on the Spanish peninsula here in L´Escala at Empuries and for that reason the Olympic flame was landed here during the Barcelona Olympics in 1992. Casa Quatre Vents is located just behind the site of the Roman Ruins and just a short walk from the medieval village of St. Marti d´Empuries.
Nowadays the area is a place the middle class Catalans would really like to keep as a secret for themselves, but independent holiday makers are starting to discover its charm. St. Marti d´Empuries is truly a wonderful place to stay with countless beautiful family friendly sandy beaches, shallow water and areas of craggy rocks providing lots of interesting places to explore and inlets to snorkel. From Villa lÚllal the walk to the beach takes between two or three minutes.
During your stay you will also find there is a huge amount you can do including watersports for all levels, including a Club Mistral about 10 minutes walk along the beach, golf, cycling both on and off road, horse riding, diving etc, or for those wanting to delve into Catalan culture there are lots of museums and places of interest locally including the Greek and Roman ´Ruins D´Empuries´, the museum of Salt, and not forgetting Salvador Dali´s ´Teatre-Museu' and his house which is now itself a fabulous museum.
