Reaching Cadaqués can be an adventure, as is the northernmost town on the Costa Brava. However, it is a good idea to prepare a trip and and make a visit to the surrounding villages following the road along mountain and sea where you can also see the French coast. Fishing villages like Port de la Selva or Llançà have a special flair, with marvelous sandy beaches. A little further inland, but close, is located San Pere de Rodas, one of the most majestic monasteries of Catalonia and that we always recommend saving a few hours away to visit. Doing a little longer car trip, this time with lighter roads, we find indoor cities like Girona, considered one of the top 10 tourist destinations in the world for its cathedral and its neighborhoods still retain the spirit in ancient times, or the beautiful medieval city of Besalú, where you can also enjoy incredible mountain meals.
Roses is a town of Mediterranean essence, with a marked tourist and seafaring tradition, located in an environment of unparalleled natural beauty and landscape, north of the Costa Brava. The gastronomy of Roses, straddling tradition and creativity, is evidently based on fresh fish. It can be found from the most traditional dish, such as the fish suquet, to the most original invention of Ferran Adrià.
Port de la Selva
Port de la Selva is a fishing village in Spain in which there is a great landscape richness that combines the blue of the Mediterranean Sea, the greenery of the vineyards and rising to sea level, mountains sculpted by the passage of time with peaks of outstanding heights like San Salvador.
Llançà is a small fishing village located very close to Cadaqués, and next to the border with France. Known for its wild coast with small, pleasant lakes and surrounded by unique natural spaces.
Girona is well-known for the beauty of its historical buildings, such as the imposing Cathedral and the Sant Feliu church; and the authenticity of its streets, like the ones located in the old town or the boulevard, which have perfectly preserved its medieval traits. But it is also a fashionable city thanks to its culture and gastronomic offers, a good example would be the world's best restaurant: El Celler de Can Roca.
Both the Baix and Alt Emporda region where our hotel is located, boast idyllic locations. Some further inland and others by the sea; many of these old towns have preserved the tradition and the magic of the Costa Brava, and today are able to enchant any visitor. The Baix Emporda, Begur or Calella are ideal for walking and getting lost in their lanes, while Ullastret and Peratallada stand out for their medieval villages. In Alt Empordà, there are important cities like Figueres, the core of the region, which is famous for its shops and museums.
