Sightseeing

The beautiful Costa Brava offers gorgeous beaches, medieval villages, historic cities and great coastal resorts. Just a mile off the coast are the Medes Islands - why not explore on a glass-bottomed boat, or go snorkelling and scuba diving in the clear warm sea? The medieval village of Pals is one of the most beautiful in the region, with lovely narrow cobbled streets it really is a special place - step up to the Josep Pla Viewpoint for great views over the surrounding area. Platja de Pals offers a choice of bars, as well as some excellent beach side restaurants. Don't miss the great beaches of Palamos, but if you're looking for city lights you won't be disappointed by Gerona!

Days Out

Gerona

Packed full of history, Gerona, makes for a great day out away from the coast. Take a walk along the city walls and explore the medieval old town and Jewish quarter or Arab baths.  For a real contrast take in the modernist buildings along the Onyar River!

Pals and Begur

The local area is full of beautiful medieval villages and Pals and nearby Begur are two of the best! Pals is one of the most popular historical villages on the Costa Brava - set on a hilltop surrounded by rice fields it is an idyllic spot.
