Overview

Pool Beach Nearby Ideal for Kids Walk to Village

A comfortable 3-bedroom villa set in well-kept gardens in Empuriabrava, Villa Papaya combines a homely feel with touches of luxury. With a beautiful pool terrace offering privacy and seclusion, you’ll forget you are so close to the centre of this pretty coastal town, known for its sandy beaches and 30km of canals.

The villa is situated in a quiet, residential area around 1.3km from the beach. Surrounded by plants and conifers its centrepiece terrace provides the perfect place to relax day or night, with poolside seating, a dining area, barbecue and sun loungers waiting for you.

Inside the house, the living area is easily accessible from the pool area. You have a cosy and tastefully furnished lounge with plush sofas and satellite TV. The dining room perfectly complements the décor of the lounge and provides seating at the table for eight. A well-equipped kitchen is just a few steps away, featuring a coffee machine, dishwasher, microwave and ceramic hob.

The three bedrooms are located on the upper floor. There is a twin room as well as two double bedrooms which have their own en suite shower. An additional bathroom can also be found on the lower floor. Air-conditioning, a washing machine and parking for two cars are among the other facilities offered by Villa Papaya.

Situated on the Gulf of Roses, Empuriabrava is an attractive coastal destination well worth getting to know. Near the wonderful Aiguamolls de l'Empordà nature reserve, it offers many great opportunities for walking and appreciating the scenery and wildlife. It has quite a few man-made attractions too – look out for the Parque Acuático Aquabrava water-park or Minigolf Carmansó if you’re looking for a family day out. The colourful Butterfly Park is also a good bet.

Just under an hour’s drive south west of Empuriabrava, you won’t want to miss visiting historic Girona. This wonderful river city is packed with archaeological marvels and must-see buildings. It also packs in a variety of fascinating museums and Catalonia’s largest urban park.

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.

For water-park fun, there’s only one place to go – Aquabrava. There is plenty here for both children and adults to enjoy, with adrenaline and relaxation zones and plenty of rides and restaurants. As well as bowling and mini-golf, Empuriabrava also has its scenic canals to entice you, ideal for quiet walks to end the day.
