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.

Restored holiday apartment in authentic farmhouse at Costa Brava
Casa Vilma is a carefully reformed holiday home with swimming pool, situated in beautiful surroundings encircled by forest and fields. The cottage is divided into three apartments, which can be rented together or separately. It has very spacious outdoor facilities. Each apartment has a private terrace with barbecue and access to the big shared swimming pool with sun lounges. The garden has a lot of shady corners under the beautiful olive trees.
The date of the construction of the cottage is not sure. Two stones dated in 1681 were found, but in the Town Hall record office there are some documents that describe some repairs on the door of the cottage that very same year. The family was dedicated to olive oil production and the oil mill, the well and some stone sinks are now used for decoration and the family living in part of the house are descendants of the family. The renovations to transform the house into rural tourism started in 1996, but not until 2005, the family could welcome the first visitors.

From the garden you enter the charming kitchen-dining room, which originally was where the olive oil mill was situated. The room has also a sofa corner with a sofa bed and TV with satellite channels. The kitchen is well-equipped with dishwasher, a washing machine, a microwave, juice squeezer and more.
The apartment has two bedrooms. One is a very spacious twin-room with Catalan vault ceiling. A part of a stone arch was found while renovating the house and is integrated in the present room.

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.
