The Costa Brava/Catalonia/Barcelona region
Mas Mascaros is located in the unique and stunning vIllage of Ullastret, in the heart of the Baix Emporda. Ullastret has a population of fewer than 300 and the locals, many of whom have lived here for generations, are proud of their village and its unique character and appeal. Many families from Barcelona own holiday and weekend properties here, too, where they come to escape from the city and bask in the tranquility of the best the Emporda region has to offer.
The small local store is a delight offering a chance to meet the locals as well as stock up on all your essentials and to try some local produce as Bottifarra – the Catalan speciality sausage and locally baked Iberian bread. The 3 local restaurants offer superb high quality traditional Iberian cooking sourcing all produce locally, and offer excellent local wines.
The nearest railway station is Flaça, a mere 10km away, which provides easy access to Girona (10 mins), Barcelona (1 1/2 hours) and the French border (30 mins).
Ullastret is at the centre of what is locally regarded (and refered to in several articles including The Guardian) as the Golden Triangle.
I have put together some ideas as requested of day and half day trips which I would consider a must:-
1 DAY BARCELONA
1/2 DAY VISIT TO THE VILLAGE IBERIC RUINS WHICH ARE ONLY 0.6KMS FROM MASIA
!/2 DAY AT DALI´S CASTLE AND HOME WITH GALA ONLY 10 MINUTES FROM ULLASTRET
1/2 DAY AT DALI´S BIG MUSEUM IN FIGUERES 45 MINUTE CAR DRIVE EACH WAY
1/2 DAY MARKET ON FRIDAY TO LA BISBAL OR MONDAY TORROELLA DE MONTGRI OR FRIDAY PLATJA D ARO
1/2 DAY SHOPPING AT PLATJA D ARO AND THE BEAUTIFUL SHOPS WHICH ATTRACT EVERYONE
1 DAY OR EVEN 2 AT THE BEACH AND YOU CAN TAKE YOUR PICK BECAUSE THEY ARE ALL AWESOME AND FANTASTIC
1 DAY AT TERRMOTA VINEYARD AND A PICNIC LUNCH THERE
1 DAYOR 1/2 AT THE SPA AT MAS TORRENT WHICH SOUNDS DIVINE AND LUNCH THERE WOULD BE A VERY EXTRAVAGANT BUT WELL WORTH IT
Restaurants to visit as a must in my eyes are:-
IBERIC ONLY 77 STEPS FROM THE MASIA
HOTEL EL FORT IN ULLASTRET TOO
CAN JOAN IN SAN FELIUX DE BOADA
MAS CONCAS IN L´ESCALA
