The house is located 50 meters from shops and 1 km. from supermarkets, 2 km. from Banyoles lake, 9 km. from Besalú village, 9 km. from Girona city, 15 km. from Natural Park of Volcanic Zone, 35 km. from Costa Brava beaches, 35 km. from Figueres (Dalí Museum), 60 km. from the ski station, 110 km. from Barcelona city. COSTA BRAVA: Like a canvas where nature has intended to combine with exquisite delicacy the intense green of the pine groves, the massive steadfastness of the rocks, the softness of the golden sands and the deep, dazzling blue of the sea - that is the Costa Brava. Frommer's Magazine from US and National Geographic have published in October 2011 the Best Destinations of the World for 2012 which are Girona and the Costa Brava. Exuberant Barcelona has long hogged the limelight, but its little sister Girona is stepping out from the wings. This diminutive city in northern Catalonia packs a cultural punch that is the envy of many a larger destination, with a superb dining scene to match. Girona's historic quarter, a secretive jumble of medieval mansions and courtyards crowned by a magnificent cathedral, is piled up on the eastern bank of the River Ter. To the west of the river, elegant avenues laid out during the 19th century are lined with smart boutiques and cafés. The lofty peaks of the Pyrenees form a violet smudge on the horizon and the rugged coves of the Costa Brava are just a short drive away. GASTRONOMY: Gastronomic mecca Celler de Can Roca, voted the best restaurant in the world by Restaurant magazine. The best restaurant of the world was El Bulli located in Girona too in 2005 and for 5 years. SHOPPING: As you stroll through the romantic historic quarter of Girona, the capital of the province, why not take advantage to do some shopping in the exclusive luxury boutiques and shops that you come across on your way? Besides, next to the house there are two Shopping Malls or Shopping Centres where you will find all kinds for clothes, jewels, shoes, perfumes and gifts among others: - Espai Gironès in Salt (15 km. from the house) - Gran Jonquera in La Jonquera (45 km. from the house) Another option would be to pay a visit to La Roca Village, a chic outlet in La Roca del Vallès, with more than one hundred designer label boutiques for chic shopping. SKI: The Vallter 2000 ski station is situated 60km from the house. Vallter 2000 is surrounded by peaks, some exceeding 2,800 meters, the base station is located at 2,000 meters above the valley of the River Ter. It's a privileged location since it gives the visitors a unique and exceptional views. Since the 2535 m level you can see the bay of Roses and the Cap de Creus (Costa Brava). This proximity to the sea makes the eastern storms leave snowfall can exceed one meter in height. Vallter where the snow is more Mediterranean. -The mountain resort of Vall de Núria is situated 65km from the house. Discover an unparalleled environment where the waters of the Núria river can only run its course thanks to the deep narrow gorges that have been cut through this hard rock, until you arrive at the valley of the Freser, a river which flows into the great Ter at Ripoll.
