Apartment | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Carudo Amunt, the upper apartment, is part of a small residence of just two duplex apartments set one on top of the other over four floors, each sleeping 6 guests, which is set just back from the main square in Llafranc and less than 2 minutes' walk to the beach.
The apartment is light and bright with tiled floors and pale walls and has been comfortably furnished for holiday living. Carudo Amunt benefits from two balconies from which there are views to the beach and sea. It is an ideal property if you want to be right in the heart of Llafranc.
The downstairs apartment is also avaible for rental and is very similar to Carudo Amunt but has the added advantage of a integral garage.
Carudo is ideal for families looking to be in Llafranc centre, near the beach and several restaurants.

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.
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.

"Great location, spacious could be great"
The locations is superb, just off the square so very close to the beach and right in the town centre. Access is by foot about 30 metres from the road. It has two good size terraces and the view down onto the harbour is lovely. It would have been nice to have had a couple of sun loungers rather than the chairs provided. The aptmnt is large and spacious, lots of cupboards/wardrobes. No English tv channels we could find and no hifi. There is no aircon or fans in this apt, which was ok in June, but looking around most places seemed to have aircon. The master bedroom upstairs has the second terrace and a walk in closet and ensure shower room. It got quite warm up there. Plenty of windows and high enough to be secure though. Bedding was a little tatty, staines on the blankets, marks on the sheets, awful pillows and not enough of them, and the bed was Hard. It was a bit chilly for a couple of days which exposed the small hot water tank (only enough for one proper hot shower) and the radiator in the living room flex wouldn't reach the plug. Not a problem when it's hot but not comfortable if cool. The shower wall support in the lower bathroom was broken as was the toilet seat upstairs. I liked that blackout curtains were provided in the master bedroom a nice touch. In summary this is a great building but is let down by the equipment and furnishings. Location is hard to beat so as a base it's fantastic, a bit more attention to the internals and a better hot water supply would make this a great apartment.
