Costa Brava villa rentals Holiday rentals- villas to rent on the Costa Brava

Costa Brava – known as the wild coast, is the rugged stretch of coastline in Catalunya that starts an hours drive north-east of Barcelona and continues up to the French border where the Pyrenees mountains track down to the beach. The southern coastline was developed in the 1960s and still caters for mass tourism. However, you head north, you will discover a different world, full of Catalan tradition, rich in culture, history and natural beauty.

With the Natural Park of Cap de Creus , the Natural Park of the marshes of the Empordà and the Natural Park of Montgrí, Medes Islands and Baix Ter, the region is blessed with an abundance of interesting places to visit and then you have the wonderful coastal resorts and medieval villages such as Púbol and Pals to explore.

Featured resorts

A coastal town not to miss is Cadaques reached by a long twisting road and probably the most inaccessible resort in Spain. The main attraction is the Perrott-Moore museum featuring the work of the late artist Salvador Dal. The town itself gets overrun with tourists in the summer, a bit like Puerto Banus on the Costa del Sol, and is full of expensive boutiques, bars and restaurants. If you can handle the drive to get there, its definitely worth a visit.

Things to see & do on the Costa Brava
