Living local is a great chance to make a real difference using "Responsible Tourism" which are supporting the local Catalan farmers as it aids maintaining traditional ways of living. Renovating the beautiful country homes, with a high degree of respect, stops the areas of mass tourism to grow larger and preserve the stunning scenery, wildlife and glory in Catalonia's historic buildings and precious heritage.

Luxurious apartment with pool in wonderful medieval town by the coast
Located five kilometers away from the coast and the warm sea water in the incredibly endearing and authentic medieval town of Pals, you will find two unique two-storey apartments: Apartments Samarit de Pals.
Normally, you are not able to find a modern apartment that’s located in the city and also has a pool – however, this is the case with Samarit de Pals. The lovely holiday home has a beautiful pool of 8x4 meters, with steps going into the water and varying depths for the safety and enjoyment of children. The pool area has various luxurious facilities, including sun beds, shaded areas, an outdoor shower etc., so there is excellent conditions to enjoy many relaxing hours by the pool. The courtyard and pool are shared with the other apartment - however, there is a private terrace with barbecue and a dining table, where outdoor meals can be enjoyed in complete privacy.
The two apartments are located in a neighborhood just outside the old, but incredibly beautiful town of Pals with small, charming streets and small shops. Just around the corner from the holiday homes, are a few shops and there is also a butcher and a grocery store nearby, where you can pick up daily necessities. Furthermore, it is always nice to have a lot of good restaurants within walking distance.
Samarit de Pals Marieta has a size of 125 m2 can accommodate 4 + 2 people in 2 spacious rooms. For the two bedrooms there are 2 bathrooms - 1 of them en suite. The extra bed is a very nice sofa bed, so with this and 2 bathrooms, there is optimal conditions for housing two extra persons. The modern kitchen has all necessities including oven, coffee maker, dishwasher, etc. The kitchen is connected with the lovely living room, where you can find a cozy sofa area with a flat-screen TV. There is also WiFi and air conditioning in the apartment. The apartment has direct access to the courtyard with pool, terrace, etc.
The holiday home has combined the authentic with the modern style, and the result is absolutely great. The house, which is originally from the 1780’s, mixes the traditional Catalan stone walls and antique tables with new designer furniture and equipment and all sorts of other modern facilities, so you get a real, authentic experience with all of today’s comforts.
The apartment also has the luxury of having a laundry room with a washing machine, a tumble dryer, an iron etc. which is also shared with the other apartment.
The friendly owners of the two apartments will at times be present in the courtyard - you are of course very welcome to ask them for help or information.
If you wish to absorb the lively local life in one of the smaller villages in the Girona region, go swimming on the stunning beaches of the Costa Brava. Go hiking in the Pyrenees or see some of the most interesting museums in Catalonia. If you want everything in a week and within your reach, we highly recommend the Girona region - one of the most beautiful regions in all of northern Catalonia.
The city of Gerona, near the French border. It is a beautiful city where you get a real feeling for its history just by walking through its ancient streets. Its a walled city which dates back to the Roman period, the old quarter is located within the city walls. The city of Girona has a rich, detailed, and dramatic history. The first inhabitants of the area were the Iberians. Then came the Romans who built a fortification there, which was named Gerunda. After having been occupied by a number of cultures, Girona finally fell under control by the Holy Roman Empire. In the 12 th century, the Jewish community flourished in Girona , and a major Kabbalistic school was built. However, the Catholic kings drove the Jews away from Spain in 1492. Later on, in the 17 th to 18 th century, Girona fell under siege by the French, and it was conquered by Napoleon in 1809. The walls of the city were destroyed in the 19 th century. Today, the city is a rich heritage site full of historic and cultural beauty.
The most striking characteristic about of the province is undoubtedly its great diversity. From a tourist point of view it can offer a magnificent coastal area -the internationally recognised Costa Brava- as well as a fine mountain region, which is ideal for both tourism and the practice of a wide variety of sports. This balance between coastal and inland scenery, along with a mild climate, helps attract tourists to the province throughout the year.
The coastline north of Barcelona, the Costa Brava, is one of the busiest coastlines in northern Spain. White sand beaches, lifeguards on duty, and one restaurant after another makes it a perfect spot for an easy day on the beach. To the north the town of Roses, provides rental of windsurfers, diving equipment etc. However should you prefer something a little quieter, we highly recommend the small village of Cadaques a to the north. This beautiful village build on the rocks around a small bay, is virtually untouched by modern day mass-tourism. And although the are no sandy beaches the water is clearer and perfect for a small snorkelling-trip. Cadaques is also the birth town of Salvador Dali, and was a reuge for painters and jazz-musicians. The small and central square is a beautiful little place for a lunch. The town also has some small very good and cosy seafood restaurants.
Figueres - Dalí
The hometown of one of the worlds most influential surreal artists Salvador Dali- Figueres, is also home of the official Dali museum. This spectacular is a must-see for all visitors in the area. Designed by Dali himself, the museum is a piece of art in itself, on the outside as well as the inside.
