The Costa Brava/Catalonia/Barcelona region
Forget the high-rise hotels, crowded, stony beaches and come to where the real Costa Brava suddenly turns smart and quiet. There are no neon lights, no thumping music and no jet skis. Beaches such as Torre Valentina, Sant Antoni, Palamos, La Fosca, Castell, Calella, Llafranc and Tamariu range from small, civilised coves to wide sweeping sandy playgrounds. Most are framed by elegant restaurants and bars serving fresh fish and "fideua", tapas and snacks.
This is a great place to come for a holiday but each of the towns in the area is a real living, working town where you rub shoulders with the locals. The atmosphere is relaxed and the people are friendly; the weather is good and the water is crystal clear.
Lots to do: swimming, windsurfing, diving, walking, cycling, horseriding, tennis, golf, shopping. You may have to hunt around for some of the things you want to do but the local tourist office is there to help. Both Barcelona and Girona are easily accessible by bus with a service more or less hourly throughout the day.
Sant Antoni de Calonge
About 100 metres from the apartment is the wide sandy beach of Sant Antoni. Take a stroll to the right and you'll find yourself walking across a small bridge into the village of Sant Antoni with its bars, shops and restaurants strung out along the promenade. After Sant Antoni the bay curves round for another kilometre to Torre Valentina with beaches all the way.
If you stroll instead to the left you will be heading towards the wide tree-lined promenade of Palamos and more sandy beaches. Palamos is a bigger town with a fantastic selection of restaurants and tapas bars. There are a couple of kids playgrounds at the beginning of this promenade.
You can take the bus or a short drive to nearby Platja d'Aro, a more commercial centre with larger shops, discoteques and a water-park.
Whatever you choose to do you will find it within easy driving distance: scuba diving, windsurfing, boat hire, cycling, walking, horseriding, tennis, beach volleyball, golf, pitch & putt.
