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 holiday house close to beaches of Costa Brava
Can Maria de Montgrí is a very large and luxuriously furnished holiday home on the Costa Brava Coast with room for 9 people spread over 5 bedrooms. The holiday villa has a size of 680 m2, and despite the fact that it is located in a small, authentic village, the garden has a size of 640 m2 - so there is plenty of space for the holiday group to play and enjoy the outdoor life. If this is not enough, there is also a pool of 72 m2, which is sure to be a hit amongst both children and adults. Otherwise, there are just 7 km to the fantastic beach “L' Escala”.
The garden is very pretty, well-kept and, as mentioned before, large compared to the holiday home’s location in a minor village. There are several seating areas: E.g., there is a small table with chairs placed in the shade of the surrounding trees, where you can take a break from the mostly clear sky and warm sun. In total, there are 3 patio areas on the property - one of them has a BBQ , where the dinner can be prepared and then enjoyed in the warm, evening sun.
You can also cool off in the 12 meters long and 6 meters wide swimming pool. The depth varies from 1.5 m to 2.5 m, so there is lots of space for various activities and for playing in the pool. Next to the pool, there is a "utility room" with bathrooms and showers. This means you do not have to go all the way into the house, and after beach visits, you can just take a quick shower here - without dragging sand into the holiday home.
When you enter Can Maria de Montrí, you are met by a very beautiful hall with classic stone floor. Right of the entrance, there is one of the three lounge areas of the house. This has a very unique, vaulted stone ceiling. Here are some very comfortable and stylish furniture, and the living room flows over into a mini library where you can read a book in this very spacious room. From here, there is access to two other rooms: Firstly, there is a game room with a pool table and a music system. Next to this, there is a lounge area with a sofa, a dining table with room for 10, and a curved ceiling. In this room, one of the walls are made of glass, providing a marvelous, panoramic view of the garden and the countryside. Furthermore, there is air conditioning in the room. You can also choose to take a few steps forward, thereby to get out on the terrace and enjoy the sun. From here, you can keep an eye on the kids in the pool, and there is a staircase to the right leading to the garden.
In the aforementioned entrance hall, there is a rustic staircase of stone, leading to the first floor where the comfortable bedrooms of the holiday home are located. In total, there are 4 double rooms and 1 single room. Spread over these, there are 3 double beds and 3 single beds. It is possible to have one extra bed installed in one of the double rooms. Common for all bedrooms is their spaciousness and the beautiful, sloping and beamed ceiling. The bedrooms have either air conditioning or fan.
On the same floor, the first floor, there is a very comfortable and cozy living room with open fireplace, comfortable sofas and a TV. Just behind the sofas, there is a long wooden table where you can enjoy the homemade meals together. The kitchen is rustic and well equipped with the necessary tools and facilities.
The holiday house is located perfectly in a small, cozy village: From the holiday home, there is 5 minutes’ walk to the nearest supermarket and restaurant. There are only 10 minutes to the wonderful beaches of the Costa Brava coastline. In addition, there is a 20 minute drive to Figueres, 30 minutes to Girona.

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.
