Can Ferriol enjoys the most stunning, peaceful location in the foothills of the Catalan Pyranees. Its privileged location in the pre-Pyranees volcanic region of La Garrotxa is 10 minutes from the medieval town of Besalu and a 45 minute drive to the Mediterranean sea and the Costa Brava’s seaside gems.

Catalonia’s Pyranees are an all-season playground offering raw natural beauty, fantastic skiing and snowboarding, incredible hiking paths to the jewel-like lakes and valleys of the Parc Nacional d’Aiguestortes i Estancy de Sant Maurici, the low-lying countryside of Cerdanya and the dramatic climbing terrain of the Serra del Cadi. With majestic scenery, plunging valleys, snow-dusted peaks, thousand-year-old monasteries, outstanding Romanesque architecture and fabulous gastronomy, hikes within the Catalan Pyrenees uncover so many delights.

Besalu is a fabulous medieval town featuring an 11th century Romanesque bridge over the Fluvia River, a restored mikveh or ritual Jewish bathhouse dating from the 11th century, the remains of a medieval synagogue and a fascinating Museum of Miniatures. The enchanting town is very beautiful and offers stunning views. You will find old stone buildings, gorgeous little pottery shops and a good range of cafes and restaurants. There is a lively market on Tuesdays. During the first weekend in September there is a medieval festival with the locals in costumes conducting re-enactments and displays of juggling along with medieval music.

South of Besalu is the Banyoles Lake where the 1992 Olympic rowing races took place. It is an excellent location for picnics. The neighbouring town of La Bisbal is the centre of Catalonia’s ceramics industry so a good place to pick up a few souvenirs. It is also home to the Palace Castle of the Bishops of Girona.

Girona is Northern Catalonia’s largest city. It is a fabulous jewellery box of galleries, museums, Gothic churches and a wonderful dining scene, all sprinkled along a web of cobbled lanes and medieval walls. The Riu Onyar separates the walkable historic centre from the gleaming commercial centre on the west. Outside of Barcelona, Girona offers the best nightlife and dining scene.

If you want a day at the beach you can head for The Gulf Of Roses, the most northeastern bay on the Catalan coast of Spain. The bay is 16km wide and is formed by the valley of the Fluvia River and the estuaries of the Manol and Muga Rivers. At the northern end of the bay, Roses has the largest fishing fleet of the Costa Brava as well as splendid west facing beaches, glorious sunsets and excellent tourist amenities. If you want to head further south, you can visit the gorgeous, idyllic town of Tamariu which is embraced by pine clad headlands. Its horse shoe shaped beach is very pretty, sheltered and boasts sparkling, turquoise waters. Just behind the beach is a promenade with cozy cafes, restaurants and shops. Further south still is the upmarket Llafranc and its stunning beach. It is little wonder that it attracts film stars, artists and the rich. Llafranc boasts a fantastic cocktail of chic restaurants and bars, authentic fishing boats, inviting turquoise waters and luxury yachts, all surrounded by glorious fragrant pine trees.

Stolli’s Divebase offers diving tuition, equipment hire and boat trips. Kayaking from Tamariu is a great experience, exploring the rocky coastline sprinkled with caves. You can organise a kayaking trip with Kayaking Costa Brava, Tamariu or you can hire a boat with Paco Boats. Another wonderful boat trip is to take an old schooner built of tropical old wood and sail around the stunning Medes Islands, a small archipelago of 7 islands one mile off the coast. Sa Tuna and Aiguablava beaches are also very popular. Children enjoy climbing the rocks at Aiguablava. The cove at Aigua Gelida is small and intimate and ideal for snorkeling in the gorgeous turquoise water.  

For some thrilling fun, Pal’s Costa Brava Parc Adventura is situated in more than 5 hectares of leafy forest with 9 circuits of different heights and difficulties. There are ziplines, vacuum pumps, vines, walkways, skateboards, slacklines, tunnels, swings and stirrups. Thrill-seeking children will love it!
