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.

Modern holiday apartment close to both beach and city
Halfway between sandy beaches and the culture pearl of Girona lies the holiday house of Can Garilla, consisting of 3 modern apartments. The country house is situated by itself, surrounded by nature and fields, yet with only 20 minutes to the beach and 15 minutes to Girona. This ideal location allows for a stress-free, relaxing holiday without losing the benefits that comes with living in the city. In addition to this, there is a small, cozy village near the holiday home, where you can pick up meat from the butcher, and use it with, for instance, the Barbecue grill.
As you walk through the huge garden, you will find the fenced, luxurious pool area. Besides the large 12x6 pool with varying depths that is shared with the other two apartments, there are various lounge chairs, tables, shade areas etc., so the stage is set for optimal relaxation in the lovely Catalan sun with the option of taking a dip in the refreshing pool at any given time. The garden also offers several shaded areas with seating areas, where you are always able to find a place in the beautiful, natural surroundings to read a book or whatever. There is furthermore a playground in the garden for the smaller ones in the holiday group, so they also can have fun and entertain themselves.
Each of the apartments also have their own private terrace, where you for instance can enjoy the evening meals in the light of the enchanting Catalan sunset. Other mentionable facilities in the holiday home could be the large multipurpose room, which has Table tennis, toys, flat screen TV, other games, etc., so there is always something to do in Can Garilla.
Llorens has room for 6 people in 3 cozy, modern double rooms. With the rooms come 2 modern bathrooms with shower and a washing machine. The apartment furthermore has a well-equipped kitchen with dishwasher, refrigerator, freezer, dining table etc. and a living room with a sofa arrangement and TV. The living room has a garden view as well as direct access to the terrace. The house also has WiFi Internet.
The concept behind Can Garilla is clear: the idea is to create a modern environment without losing the essence of the authentic Catalan feel. This results in a perfect combination of modern and practical equipment as well as traditional Catalan features, such as the elegant, rustic furniture - which altogether contributes to you getting a relaxing holiday and an interesting, cultural experience in one package.

Description of the region :
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.
