Overview

Pool Beach Nearby Ideal for Kids

The 3-bedroom Villa Melon sits right beside the canal in Empuriabrava, giving it some beautiful views. Up to six guests can enjoy its modern interiors and fresh outdoor spaces, which incorporate both a swimming pool and an inviting hot tub.

With its own private mooring on the canal, Villa Melon is accessible by boat, and sits around 1.9km from the sea. Numerous water-sports are available in the area, as well as activities like golf, horse-riding and cycling – Empuriabrava is a great place to get active.

As well as its own pool, the villa offers relaxing spaces for dining and sunbathing on its terrace. There is also a barbecue, a lawned area and a rooftop hot tub which enjoys some wonderful views of mountains.

Inside, the house offers a light, modern and open-plan living space. There is a sleek kitchen equipped with dishwasher, microwave, oven and hob, and an adjacent dining area which perfectly matches the style. The lounge area is spacious and provides large sofas, a flatscreen TV and a great view out to the terrace.

There are three double bedrooms to choose from at Villa Melon, each one of them air-conditioned, and one with its own en suite bathroom. All of these can be found on the upper floor. There are two additional bathrooms in the house too.

The local area offers many opportunities to get out and enjoy yourselves. The wonderful Aiguamolls de l'Empordà nature reserve is just south of Empuriabrava – its wetlands are the ideal place to go bird-spotting, or just appreciate the fresh coastal air. The town is also home to Butterfly Park, which has several other species to see beside its colourful butterflies.

There's lots of fun to be had at Parque Acuático Aquabrava water-park or Minigolf Carmansó if you're looking for a family day out. You could also head for the big city – Girona is less than an hour's drive away and is packed with heritage landmarks.

Loading map

The area of Catalonia extending north of Barcelona has no shortage of beach resorts and attractive coastal hideaways to uncover. Large towns such as Badalona and Mataró later give way to smaller but much-loved locations like Llafranc and Begur, giving this stretch of the Costa Brava a satisfying level of variety.

What lies inland is also positively rewarding. With a landscape dominated by mountainous regions like Montseny and the Cadiretes, it would be a shame not to take some time away from the beach to enjoy some incredible scenery either on foot or by bike. The latter area extends as far as the coast north of Tossa de Mar, offering the perfect opportunity to combine the two.

One of Catalonia’s most impressive historic cities lies around 35 minutes’ drive north of here – Girona. Whether it’s to view the Arab Baths, the record-breaking wide nave of the Catedral de Santa María or the coloured houses lining the River Onyar, you are assured of an inspiring visit. Girona is also home to Catalonia’s largest urban park, Devesa, a wonderful green oasis in the heart of the city.

For something a little more rugged, the mountains of Montseny are a vast playground for hikers and climbers. Richly diverse in terms of both landscape and climate, this vast natural area is one of the region’s must-sees. To the south, the smaller Parc del Montnegre i el Corredor offers a relaxing outdoor environment that’s well suited to walking.

Along the coast to the east of this area, a number of attractive towns make for appealing excursions, such as Arenys de Mar with its eye-catching historic buildings and pretty harbour. North-west of Barcelona, the city of Terrassa provides an alternative angle on Catalonia. This important industrial city boasts some impressive architecture in the form of the Modernist Masia Freixa and Mercat de la Independència central market. Its National Museum of Science and Technology offers an intriguing overview of more recent developments.

Ideal for Kids

With its lovely outdoor spaces and canal-side swimming pool, the kids are sure to be charmed by Villa Melon. Inside, there’s a cool feel to the living spaces, which come with TV and internet access – and upstairs, that amazing hot tub for a late-evening soak.

Empuriabrava has some lovely beaches, like the popular Platja de la Rubina, which is a great place for a family day out. Nature-lovers will enjoy seeing the birds at the Aiguamolls de l'Empordà nature reserve and the many cute creatures which inhabit the rainforest at Butterfly Park.

For high-adrenaline rides and some more relaxed ones, head to the Aquabrava water-park – a place even the adults should get a kick out of. Elsewhere in town, you will find mini-golf, ten-pin bowling and plenty of cafés and restaurants, as well as a wind tunnel for a spot of sky-diving.
