If it was good enough for Ernest Hemingway...

If you're going to follow in any celebrity footsteps, then surely you can't beat Ernest Hemingway and Salvador Dali. Both great men were fans of Llafranc, and you'll soon see why. With Llafranc vacation rentals, the seafood's fresh, the coastline's uncluttered, and the rugged beauty of the place is undeniable. It's a bit more upmarket than your standard Spanish resort town, and its undeveloped nature means the usual modern high-rises are nowhere to be seen. It's a place to enjoy the scent of the pines, lounge on the sandy beach, and take long walks along the picturesque rocky coastline.

Rum cocktails by the beach? Yes, please!

Llafranc vacation rentals are never far from the beach, and you'll want to get acquainted with the soft sand and clear, warm waters as quickly as possible. There are other, more secluded beaches around too, with nearby Cala Pedrosa favored by those in the know. One of the loveliest things to do is take a short hike down along the coast to the flashier neighboring town of Calella. If you're lucky enough to turn up the second weekend in July, you might just catch Caribbean-inspired music and flaming rum cocktails at the famous Habanera festival.

Have you got a Roman nose for a great vacation spot?

Among their many other achievements, the Romans were connoisseurs of a good Spanish beach resort, and anywhere good seems to have Roman artifacts and ruins aplenty. Llafranc is no exception, and you can get a first-hand look at archaeological discoveries, including an ancient winery. Among other local highlights are the Cap Roig botanic gardens and castle, just outside Calella, which broke ground in 1927 and took nearly 50 years to complete. If you fancy venturing a little further afield, the nearby town of Begur is a good bet, with a medieval castle and charming, Cuban-style buildings that must have made Hemingway feel right at home.

There's always elbow room on these beaches

The busiest time of year for Llafranc vacation rentals is July and August, but the summery weather lasts much longer than that, and you should get much better rates if you inch toward the shoulder season just a little. Fall and spring actually are great times to visit. The summers here are long, warm, and dry, though the geographical situation and sea breezes mean it rarely gets boiling-hot like some of the better-known resorts down toward Alicante. Winters in Llafranc are reasonably mild, but still cool enough to keep most folks off the beach.

Let's all shout "bravo" for the Costa Brava

Llafranc is set on the Costa Brava, a rocky stretch of coast in Catalonia, Northern Spain. It's relatively undeveloped, and among the many things that will steal your heart are the clear waters, the old-school fishing villages, and the ubiquitous pine trees. There's also a lot of marine life around, making it a great place to go snorkeling (and, of course, to order seafood). Despite the rocky terrain, there are plenty of sandy beaches on the Costa Brava, including Llafranc beach itself. And if you're up in time for sunrise, the old San Sebastian lighthouse is the perfect place to watch it.
