World-renowned for its beautiful shoreline, which transcends around an excess of upmarket fishing villages and lively, characterful coastal towns – not to mention a year-round bustling capital city, home to distinct and unmatchable art and architecture – it stands to reason that Catalunya remains one of Spain’s most popular holiday destinations for families.
If you are looking for quality, self-catering family accommodation in some of the most beautiful, unspoilt parts of Catalunya, take a look at these three family-friendly villas.
Ca La Francesca, Aigua Xelida, Tamariu
Ca La Francesca is a fabulous contemporary three-bedroom, two-bathroom villa, just 700m from the traditional fishing village of Tamariu.
This spacious and comfortable modern villa can sleep six guests. With a private pool, enclosed garden of lawns and woodland, open and closed terraces, a built-in barbecue and table tennis, Ca La Francesca is geared up for family fun in the sun.
Being just a stone’s throw from the sandy curved bay of Tamariu, which is considered one of the Costa Brava’s prettiest fishing villages, leisurely family days at the beach are there to be enjoyed at Ca La Francesca.
Casa Gloria, Rio d’Oro, Calogne
As its name suggests, Casa Gloria is a glorious villa, which enjoys an elevated position on the wooded slopes of Rio d’Oro, with sea views of the beautiful bay of Palamos in the distance.
This three-bedroom, two-bathroom modern villa is tastefully decorated in a conventional Mediterranean style, with cool terracotta tiles underfoot.
Being just 10 minutes from the charming village of Calogne, with its medieval castle and great shops and restaurants, Casa Gloria is a great choice of accommodation for families wanting to become acquainted with the unique charm of this part of Catalunya.
For families of four wanting to discover the enticing hilltop town of Begur, which is home to a spectacular 11th century castle, you may want to stay at the charming semi-detached property of Nispero.
Named after the Medlar tree in the enclosed garden, the two-bedroom house of Nispero provides great accommodation for families of four. The property’s swimming pool will undoubtedly be a focal point for family fun and with an attractive covered terrace overlooking the pool, parents can keep a convenient watchful eye as the kids splash about in the water.
