Costa Brava Information

The Costa Brava stretches from Portbou (border with France) to Blanes. It is a special, very unique region. There are stretched out sand beaches with many possibilities for watersports. At the same time you will find little characteristic harbour towns, with promenades with terraces at the sea.

But the Costa Brava has much more to offer. There is an endless list of possibilities, even for the most demanding. A litttle example: The works of Antoni Gaudi, Salvador Dalí and Pablo Picasso. Romain Tarragona, declared world heritage site. But also the rocky coast paths that provide spectacular views, beautiful contrasts between the granite mountains and the blue sea, with intense green pine trees and golden bays. Also the nature parks more inland in the mountains, such as Aigüestortes and the lake of San Maurici are very worthwhile to visit. This is where you can the taste the real Spanish lifestyle, especially when you visit the picturesque villages and old monasteries. As you see, there’s enough for every vacationer.


The mediterranian climate is known for it’s mild winters and lang hot, dry summers. Average temperatures in the summer range from 28°C in the north to 30°C in the south. But there are periods in the summer where temperatures are much higher. Extremes of 35°C and even 40°C are no exception. June is the month with the most ours of sunlight, at an average 325 hours.

Renting in the winter months

Very worthwile to discover are the many wintersport locations in the Pyrenees of Girona: a ski surface area of more than 150 square km, which in the summer is a spectacular hiking area.
We have close contacts with ski tour operators such as the one in San Feliu de Guíxols. You can ski there for as little as a single day. The tour bus visits a different ski site every sunday. Of course rental ski equipment is available at every ski location. All these are good reasons to pay a visit to the beautiful Costa Brava in the winter.

The Spanish Kitchen

Many people know Spain for the paella and the sangria, but the Spanish kitchen has so much more to offer. At the coast fish dishes are very popular, and inland meats such as rabbit and lamb are the favorite dishes. Typical Spanish of course are also the tapas. Of course the Spanish people are also very attuned to the wishes of their guests and also offer a very extensive European menu.
Please be aware that many restaurants open their doors not before 8PM, because in Spain it is not customary to dine before 9PM.
