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 Aiguablava, Tamariu, Llafranc, Calella de Palafrugell to the gardens of Cap Roig. This dramatic coastline abounds with beautiful bays, coves and headlands, interspersed with golden sandy beaches and is washed by sparkling seas. The glistening white villages of Tamariu, Llafranc and Calella de Palafrugell, each very different, are the perfect locations for relaxing holidays.
Inland, the countryside is mainly agricultural interspersed with some wonderful timeless villages like Peratallada and Ullastret set against a distant backdrop of the ever present Pyrenees. If you want to explore, visit Pals, the walled medieval city; Bisbal famed for its production of ceramics; Torroella de Montgri with its Gothic palaces, courtyards and narrow streets that nestle 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 Figures is well worth a visit; 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.
The Llafranc area
Llafranc is a charming, traditional Spanish resort with a tree lined promenade fronting a long golden sandy beach that is set on a beautiful bay between its fishing and pleasure port at one end and a majestic tree clad hillside at the other. It is very popular with families, beach lovers and also those seeking more energetic pursuits - water sports, tennis, riding, scuba diving, walking, cycling and golf.
Holidays here are relaxed, lunches are long and dinners run late and Llafranc has a number of excellent restaurants specialising in seafood and Catalan specialities, some are set overlooking the sea, whilst others are just back from the promenade. Our favourites are in the Hotel Llevant, the Casamar, Casa Leon and Chez Tomas. A popular way to burn off the excesses of a good meal is the walk up to the lighthouse, El Far, set high above the resort with breathtaking views over the bay and down the coast. Another popular, less energetic stroll is south along the coast, following the ancient Cami de Ronda to the neighbouring resort of Calella de Palafrugell.
There are many local festivals in the surrounding towns and villages – the highlight being the Festa de St Joan on 23/24 June.
