Girona Airport to Apartment: The whole holiday area is very walk able. If you do not wish to rent a car, a taxi will cost you about 45 Euro. It's 19 miles so takes 20-25 min. We can also arrange a pick-up service, with name boards at Arrivals, if you prefer.
Or a bus service can take you via Girona, where you need to change for Platja D'Aro and S'Agaro. With the expansion of Girona Airport in 2009, there are also a number of seasonal buses appearing at the airport that will take you to S'Agaro High Street direct.
Safe, quiet, clean (and a little famous): The whole area is very safe, quiet and clean with a wealthy history linked back originally to the Hollywood Greats of the 1920s and 30s (Humphrey Bogart, Charlie Chaplin, Frank Sinatra, Ava Gardner, Orson Welles, Lauren Bacall etc) - so you will feel comfortable walking around the area without a car and (to let you into a secret) those who have built a little local knowledge of S'Agaró just keep coming back year after year.
