Empuriabrava Villa Rental Photos and Description
Walking distance to large sandy beach, restaurants & bars in residential marina
This beautiful villa has been fully refurbished for the 2008 letting season and offers top-class accommodation for eight persons in four double bedrooms, two of which are en-suite. There is an additional shared bathroom plus an extra cloakroom with WC & shower. The modern layout offers open-plan living downstairs with large fully equipped kitchen, dining area and lounge with outside balcony & barbecue and steps down to pool, & sun bathing decking. At the end of the garden there is a private mooring (11m) for residents use and the canal leads out to the main marina and into the beautiful Bay of Roses. Boats may be hired by the hour for trips round the canal, and a number of renters bring their own boats and can then enjoy trips to the many little bays on the Cadaques peninsula. The fishing port of Roses is nearby, as is Figueres and the amazing Dali gallery. Some of the best golf in the Costa Brava is nearby, and in walking distance is the world centre for sky diving & kite surfing.
Costa Brava: The northern Costa Brava - 'the wild coast', is one of the most beautiful parts of the Mediterranean. It is known for its pretty fishing villages, evergreen pine and cork oak forests, and proud Catalan culture and cuisine. Girona and Barcelona are both worth visiting for the exquisite architecture and fascinating history. Figueres is where Salvador Dali was born and is buried - a visit to his 'theatre' gallery is a must. To the east is Cadaques, one of the most unspoilt areas on the coast and a beautiful white painted town reached by a single road, or by sea. This is where Dali worked and lived. To the north is the French border and the magnificent Pyrenees mountains that today separate France & Spain. The Catalans are a proud, friendly and hard-working people, and see themselves as distinctly non-Spanish. Do not confuse this part of Spain with the high-rise hotels & package tour destinations of southern Costa Brava - it is not and long may it remain so.
