Villa Catalana is situated in an exclusive development in the quiet estate of Aigua Gelida, 400m from the pretty little cove of Aigua Gelida and 2km from the stunning beach and varied amenities of Tamariu. This fabulous private development has shared access to three swimming pools, three floodlit tennis courts, a playground and a wonderful manicured garden shaded by pine trees. It is fantastic to have these facilities as well as the beach being so close.

Aigua Gelida’s little cove is idyllic with inviting turquoise water. It is a perfect place to snorkel. Tamariu’s beach is a lovely sandy stretch of silvery sand and has watersports on offer; boat trips from the pontoon and a number of cozy cafes and restaurants surrounding the beach. Many residents of Barcelona have designer holiday homes here. It is a popular destination for tourists looking for an upmarket, peaceful resort with plenty of excellent restaurants, blissful, sheltered beaches and historic, charming villages and towns to explore.

Villa Catalana is on two levels with some of its own outside space. There is a delightful terrace with covered alfresco dining and a sunbathing deck on one side and another patio surrounded by mature planting and a barbecue area on the other. If you want to swim or take a dip, you only have to cross the road to the communal pools.

Villa Catalana is fairly simple in its decor. There are an open plan living and dining area with a fireplace that leads to the main terrace and to the spacious kitchen. Upstairs there are 4 bedrooms and two modern bathrooms, one of which is an ensuite to the master bedroom. This has a kingsize bed. The other rooms are a double with a queen-size bed, a twin bedroom and a bedroom with a bunk bed, so the villa sleeps 8 guests. The rooms all look out to the grounds of the estate and the forest.

Oliver Approved

What you should know…

  • Villa Catalana does not have its own pool. Three wonderful pools set in manicured gardens are shared between the villas on this private estate
  • In total the circular route of the Camino de Ronda hiking route covers 140km, and the coastal part is 43km so you will probably only want to hike part of it!
  • There are so many beaches to visit. Apart from the Aigua Gelida cove, Sa Tuna, Sa Riera, Pals and Aiguablava are other wonderful beaches to look out for

Villa Catalana is situated in a lovely, peaceful private estate in the classy Aigua Gelida area of the Costa Brava, within easy reach of idyllic coves, fabulous restaurants and attractions, historic villages and towns such as Begur and Girona. Tamariu is a family-friendly with welcoming restaurants and bars. It hosts the Festival of Tamariu in August each year with watermelon launching, habaneras singing, a foam party and a performing clown.

Tamariu is at the end of the coastal part of the famous Camino de Ronda hiking route. You can follow the dramatic cliffs to the pretty nearby village of Llafranc passing the lovely 19th century Sant Sebastia lighthouse on the way. Llafranc was a favourite haunt of Salvador Dali and is popular with the rich and famous stars. If you continue the Camino de Ronda route, you will reach the gorgeous Calella de Palafrugell and the stunning botanical gardens at Cap Roig.

Pals is an utterly charming village with narrow winding lanes leading to the small Gothic church of Sant Pere where you can enjoy the 360-degree panoramic views of the distant Pyrenees at one end of the valley and the Medes Islands at the other. There is a permanent exhibition of Catalan wines and cavas at the Museu-Casa de Cultura Ca La Pruna, dating back to the 15th and 16th century. The Mas Geli vineyard in Pals makes six different organic wines and is worth a visit. The beach is astonishing with rice fields on one side.

The quaint though sophisticated Medieval village of Begur boasts cobbled streets, whitewashed houses draping the hillside, fabulous restaurants and cafes, a crumbling stone castle and a very big welcome. Close to Begur is La Bisbal, home to a thriving ceramic industry where you can buy some ceramic souvenirs to take home.

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

Villa Catalana is ideal for a family holiday. The shared facilities are fabulous so tennis, and swimming fans will be very happy. There are three pools, one particularly shallow for young children. Another has a diving and jumping board which some children love. The tennis courts are excellent, and the playground is fun for young children.

The local beach is very close to the villa, and many other beaches are within easy reach. The beach at Tamariu is 2km from the villa so walkable if you fancy a stroll. On the right-hand side of the beach, past some large rocks, you will find a smaller beach with a diving board which is great fun to jump from.

Stolli’s Divebase offers diving tuition and boat tours aboard their boat ‘Gabriela’ which sails from the Tamariu pontoon. The golden-sanded beach of Pals has protected dunes and special ecosystems such as wetlands and rice fields alongside the beach. Sa Tuna and Aiguablava are favourites with families with lots of entertainment on the beaches.

The Costa Brava Parc Adventura at Pals is a wonderful afternoon out. There are ziplines, vacuum pumps, slacklines, tunnels, swings and stirrups for children aged 3 and over.

Enjoyable waterparks in the Costa Brava include Aquadiver, Platja d’Aro, Aquabrava, Roses, Water World, Loret de Mar and Waterpark in the sea, Empuriabrava. Platja d’Aro offers many thrill-seeking slides and rides including Kamikazi slides, Splash Mountain, Water Fall, Blue and Pink Zig Zags, Aqua Rocket, Aqua Racer, a wave pool and much more. The butterfly park at Empuriabrava, set in fantastic tropical gardens with butterflies, turtles, parrots and iguanas, is also worth a stop if you are visiting the fantastic water obstacle course.
