Apartment | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Set right on the promenade of the charming resort of Tamariu, literally steps from the beautiful sandy beach and with great views over the sparkling bay, Bellavista sleeps up to 6 guests. Originally a fisherman's cottage Bellavista is now a three bedroom townhouse spread over three floors. Traditionally furnished for holiday living, Bellavista has a wonderful location facing south.
On either side of Bellavista there are a number of restaurants and bars serving tapas, fish, Catalan specialities or just a coffee. With the beach and sea right in front, Bellavista is perfectly located for a beach holiday. Out of season Tamariu is also appealing as a centre for walking, or visiting the many places of interest nearby.

Bellavista is perfect for a family or a group of friends who wish to be right by the sea.

Just a quick note to say thank you for my 10 days in Tamariu. The weather (of course) was brilliant. Eight perfect days, with a couple of days of light cloud, which enabled me to drive around the area a bit more. Thanks for arranging' that.
Bellavista was fine thank you, the location, and it was very nice to wake up and see the sea. No doubt I will return to Tamariu some time soon, so will keep all my information for future use.

Thanks again. A - 2011

D - August 2011
Just to say thank you for renting us your apartment last week. We had a lovely week in Tamariu. Hired a car and explored some of the other beaches such as Llafranc and Agua Blava. We also did the Dali trail and went to Figueres and Cadaques although the road to Cadaques was quite an experience! I don't know if you've ever visited Dali's house at Cadaques but it is really special.
The apartment was perfect for our needs and we really enjoyed our stay.
S P - July 2011
Just to let you know we had wonderful time in Tamariu! the apartment is simply furnished but all in all it was great.

The Catalunia 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.
Named after the tamarisk trees that surrounded its bays, Tamariu is a charming small resort with a crescent of golden sandy beach, which is set on a sparkling bay between majestic tree clad hillsides. It is popular with families, beach lovers and those seeking water sports, walkers, cyclists and divers, and is renowned for its excellent fish restaurants which are set on the promenade overlooking the beach and sea.
Holidays here are relaxed, lunches are long and the evenings are late but fairly quiet. The paseo is the prelude to the evening meal with longer walks along the coast for the more serious hiker, along the ancient Cami de Ronda exploring the beautiful scenery and the many coves.
There are many local festivals in the surrounding towns and villages – the main event being the Catalan Festa de St Joan on 23 and 24 June which is marked all over the region with bonfires and firework parties.
