15-20 minutes to the coast

, it is very natural to take a few trips there. Additionally, there are only 4 km to Púbol - a cultural city, where the

castle of Salvador Dalí

is located. Masia dels Gijals have a little of each and sets the base for an unforgettable holiday in an authentic Catalan environment.

The house was build 300 years ago, as a barn, but now the owners have restored it and turned it into a

in the middle of the Empordá area. The house lies beautifully situated by the forest edge, and the only neighbours are the

swimming pool of 50 m2

, where there is plenty of room for play and cooling off. Right next to this, there is a

nice seating area with benches and tables

in concrete. Additionally, there are sun loungers which you can both place in the sun or in the shade, and for the ultimate relaxation there is a hammock under a shady tree.

covered terrace with dining table

common room

with a sitting area, dining area and well-equipped kitchen.

four bedrooms

of the holiday house. These are all spacious and in good quality. All rooms have

Description of the region :

If you wish to absorb the lively local life in one of the smaller villages in the Girona region, go swimming on the stunning beaches of the Costa Brava. Go hiking in the Pyrenees or see some of the most interesting museums in Catalonia. If you want everything in a week and within your reach, we highly recommend the Girona region - one of the most beautiful regions in all of northern Catalonia.

The city of Gerona, near the French border. It is a beautiful city where you get a real feeling for its history just by walking through its ancient streets. Its a walled city which dates back to the Roman period, the old quarter is located within the city walls. The city of

Girona

has a rich, detailed, and dramatic history. The first inhabitants of the area were the Iberians. Then came the Romans who built a fortification there, which was named Gerunda. After having been occupied by a number of cultures,

Girona

finally fell under control by the Holy Roman Empire. In the 12 th century, the Jewish community flourished in

Girona

, and a major Kabbalistic school was built. However, the Catholic kings drove the Jews away from Spain in 1492. Later on, in the 17 th to 18 th century,

Girona

fell under siege by the French, and it was conquered by Napoleon in 1809. The walls of the city were destroyed in the 19 th century. Today, the city is a rich heritage site full of historic and cultural beauty.

The most striking characteristic about of the province is undoubtedly its great diversity. From a tourist point of view it can offer a magnificent coastal area -the internationally recognised Costa Brava- as well as a fine mountain region, which is ideal for both tourism and the practice of a wide variety of sports. This balance between coastal and inland scenery, along with a mild climate, helps attract tourists to the province throughout the year.

The coastline

The coastline north of Barcelona, the Costa Brava, is one of the busiest coastlines in northern Spain. White sand beaches, lifeguards on duty, and one restaurant after another makes it a perfect spot for an easy day on the beach. To the north the town of Roses, provides rental of windsurfers, diving equipment etc. However should you prefer something a little quieter, we highly recommend the small village of Cadaques a to the north. This beautiful village build on the rocks around a small bay, is virtually untouched by modern day mass-tourism. And although the are no sandy beaches the water is clearer and perfect for a small snorkelling-trip. Cadaques is also the birth town of Salvador Dali, and was a reuge for painters and jazz-musicians. The small and central square is a beautiful little place for a lunch. The town also has some small very good and cosy seafood restaurants.

Figueres - Dalí

The hometown of one of the worlds most influential surreal artists Salvador Dali- Figueres, is also home of the official Dali museum. This spectacular is a must-see for all visitors in the area. Designed by Dali himself, the museum is a piece of art in itself, on the outside as well as the inside. For extensive info and ticket reservations follow this link
