Apartments on the Costa Brava

Relaxing holidays in a vacation rental on the wild coast

On the Costa Brava, a country of rugged rocky outcrops, there are numerous towns from north to south where you can rent a comfortable vacation rental in a historic townhouse. Most of the accommodations are located directly at the sea and only a few steps away from the beaches, where you can really relax.

The choice of holiday accommodations is huge

If you want to be close to shops, restaurants and places of interest, it is best to rent an apartment or studio in one of the centres such as Colera, Palamós or Blanes. Along the coastline there is also the possibility to choose small cottages and large villas as holiday homes. A Finca offers you a lot of space for your extended family holiday and mostly also an extensive garden with pool, from where you can enjoy the wonderful view over the sea.

The advantages of a holiday apartment on the Costa Brava

If you are looking for peace and quiet, it is best to book a secluded vacation rental with garden, terrace and barbecue. A family friendly finca often offers a fenced property and a playground where your children can romp freely. In addition, you can search specifically for vacation rentals that have their own pool. In the apartment houses there is less seclusion, but a doorman with shuttle service and bicycle rental.

Holidays on the Costa Brava

Location and orientation

Holidays in Catalonia

The Costa Brava is a 220 kilometre stretch of coast in north-eastern Spain in the Catalonia region. The mainland borders directly on the Spanish Mediterranean Sea and is therefore a popular area for beach holidaymakers. The Costa Brava extends from the French-Spanish border at Portbou to Blanes, where the river Tordera flows into the sea. Barcelona is about 60 kilometres away from the southern edge of the Costa Brava.

Rock massifs as far as the eye can see

Parallel to the Costa Brava there are some mountain ranges whose rocks fall steeply into the sea. In between are some picturesque bays, beaches and fishing villages such as Tamariu and L'Estartit. Especially wild landscapes can be found on the peninsula Cap de Creus as well as around Cap de Begur near Palafrugell.

Discover flora and fauna

As a contrast to the wild rocky coast there are flat sandy beaches and other gentle landscapes to be seen. South of Lloret de Mar the area is mostly flat and characterized by a swampy coastal land. Typical Mediterranean plants in this region are wild herbs such as thyme and rosemary, broom and cistus. Along the mountainous Costa Brava grow mainly cork oaks, pine trees and acacia trees. There also live some interesting wild animals, like lynxes, wild cats, foxes, wild pigs as well as different birds of prey.

Travelers and Activities

Perfect conditions for the beach holidaymaker

On the Costa Brava there are wide sandy beaches as well as hidden bays with crystal clear water. Very recommendable is the family beach in Tamariu, which is surrounded by whitewashed houses and offers finest sand to build sand castles. The beach in the bay of Sant Feliu de Guíxols, only 15 metres long, offers a lot of privacy. From here you have a fantastic view of the rock castle of Lloret de Mar.

Varied landscapes for cycling

A popular cycling and mountain biking region on the Costa Brava are the foothills of the Pyrenees near Girona. There are countless kilometres of routes waiting to be discovered by you on two wheels. A comfortable route for families with children can be found along the former railway line. Here you will be rewarded with spectacular landscapes.

The holiday region for wine lovers

The hinterland of the Costa Brava is a famous wine-growing area that you can visit via the D.O. wine route. Empordà to discover. The tradition of wine-growing goes back to the time of the Romans. Visit the winegrowers and wineries of the Costa Brava and let yourself be taken care of at the D.O. Empordà to discover the secrets of red wines, white wines and rosé wines.

The famous surrealist painter Salvador Dalí has a special meaning for the inhabitants of the Costa Brava, since he was born in Figueres and also did his military service in the famous Castell de Sant Ferran.

Top 5 travel tips

Impressive steep coast
Impressive steep coast
1. Discover the charming old town on a walk

Pals is one of the most interesting cities on the Costa Brava. The listed medieval old town of Vila Vela is located on a hill and is therefore provided with numerous staircases. After an extensive stroll you can refresh yourself at the beach of Sa Punta without restrictions.

2. The longest fortress wall in Catalonia

Very impressive is the Castell de Sant Ferran from the 18th century, which is also considered to be the largest fortress in Europe. You will find the Castell above the town of Figueres in an exposed location on a plateau. The fortress area covers a total of 32 hectares, of which the building alone has a diameter of three kilometres. For a guided tour of the complex and the fortress, advance reservation is required. The guide will take you along the ditch system, lead you through the mine tunnels and take you on a rubber dinghy trip through one of the cisterns.

3. Scout out the first traces of settlements

Visit the excavation site of the Iberian settlement in Ullastret, which suggests that the region was first settled in the Stone Age. However, there is evidence that many people lived here, especially in the 6th century B.C., as evidenced by the numerous Greek fine ceramics found here.

4. Undertake varied excursions in the nature parks

Among the most important natural parks on the Costa Brava are the Cap de Creus in Alt Empordà and the Albera Natural Park not far from the Pyrenees. You can discover an ecologically valuable wetland area in the Aiguamolls de l'Empordà Nature Park, located between Empuriabrava, Roses and L'Escala.

5. To the biggest celebration of the year

Every year from June 23rd to June 24th, all the towns on the Costa Brava celebrate St. John's Night, in Spanish "Revetlla de San Joan". On this day the inhabitants celebrate the farewell of spring and welcome the summer with magical fires. All parishioners gather around a fire and perform ancient rituals of pagan origin. This tradition is accompanied by music, dance and a festival that lasts until the early hours of the morning.
