ALT EMPORDA: This region is situated at the Northeastern most corner of the Iberian Peninsula, where the Costa Brava begins, with small coastal towns like Portbou and Colera. The capital, Figueres, is known world-wide for being the site of the Dalí Theatre Museum, one of Spain's most frequently visited museums, which houses a great deal of the painter's works. From here, one can embark on a journey covering the life of Salvador Dalí, including a visit to the Púbol castle (in the Baix Empordà region) and to his home in Portlligat, in Cadaqués.
The Alt Empordà region also boasts natural areas of great environmental interest. The Aiguamolls de I'Empordà Natural Park, situated between the towns of Castelló d'Empúries, Empuriabrava (a residential area that provides a wide range of leisure offerings and where the Mediterranean's biggest residential marina is located) and Sant Pere Pescador, concentrates a large number of autochthonous flora and fauna species.
SITUATED ON THE BORDER OF THE PARK: Cap de Creus Natural Park, which occupies a surface area of 10,787 hectares on land and another 3,073 hectares of sea, encompasses the coastal towns of Cadaqués, El Port de la Selva, Llançà and Roses, and the inland towns of La Selva de Mar, Palau -saverdera, Pau and Vilajuïga. You will enjoy pleasant walking tours, usually with a lot of wind, along the paths that take you to the Cap. This is your chance of seeing more that 250 bird species.
“Cap de Creus” is the first marine and terrestrial park in Catalonia. The “Cap de Creus” peninsula is the last spur of the Pyrenees and the easternmost point of the Iberian Peninsula.
The combination of both marine and inland environments makes Cap de Creus Natural Park the first of its kind in Catalonia.
THE NEARBY RUINS D'EMPORDA: Empuries has a very nice beach, which is dwarfed by the most important archaeological site in Spain, like the ruins of the Greek Paleopolis at Sant Marti d´Empuries, with the Neopolis, necropolis and the Roman Ruins as well as the museum of the excavations. The foundation of Empuries is ascribed to the Greeks who had settled at Marsseille in 550BC. A visit to the ruins shows the market, the agora, the holy area where the temples stood and the main one dedicated to Jupiter. Among a group of altars, the statue of Aesculapius was found, a reproduction of which can be seen. The museum shows reproductions of the most valuable finds, which are kept in Barcelona and Girona. The ruins of a Christian basilica and Visigoth sarcophagi are found in the harbour area. Of the Roman town, the southern wall, the amphitheatre and the arena are preserved as well as the ruins of a Roman villa.

The reason why I love spending time at this property is because of the forever changing and fantastic views high over the bay and facing the western mountain ranges.
In winter the snow capped peaks and clear blue skies that are often dotted in the distance with brightly coloured hot air balloons .
In summer the constant movement of the seacraft on the bay and the constant drop of parachutists slowly descending back to the airfield at opposite side of the bay in Empuriabrava which is the busiest of its kind in Europe, and then the most interesting cloud formations that capture the imagination.
In spring you can enjoy the view of migrating birds including Storks heading further north or to the nearby Aiguamolls wildlife sanctuary.
In Autumn we enjoy the most spectacular sunsets also some great storms and the electrical storms that can be viewed from hundreds of kilometers away.
I have chosen to remain as gardner at the house, not only because as a passionate gardner this garden has become one of the biggest challenges of my life , a constant struggle with the elements,hot summers ,low rainfall,high wind periods and occaisionally some very cold winters but because of the last mentioned changing views, this work is allways an absolute pleasure!
And when the weather turns on us and one need to retreat to the sanctuary of the house the views are still their from every window
large panoramic grey frames , chosen exspecially to frame and form living artworks that change depending on the angle and time of day that one has chosen to enjoy and view them.
