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.

Cozy holiday apartment for two persons in the beautiful Costa Brava region
Casa Puix Miguel is a nice, large building rented as separate apartments. The building lies perfectly with many activities in the local area (read more about that below).
"Olive 3" is a nice apartment with typical Catalan features: It has beautiful stony walls and beamed ceiling. The living room and kitchen are combined into a common room, which also has TV, sofa and chairs. There is a beautiful bedroom with a large double bed. In addition, there is a large, modern bathroom with shower. The apartment has a private terrace, so you can enjoy the warm Catalan sunshine. There are two extra beds (against a supplement).
The house has a very large garden with a huge swimming pool, which is secured with a fence and with deck chairs so you can relax, only to be interrupted by a refreshing swim. In the rest of the garden, there are several patio areas and orange and lemon trees provide both shade and a touch of the Mediterranean atmosphere. In the village within walking distance, there are a few restaurants and a shop with a little of everything. Every day at 12:00, a bread van comes to the square, so you can buy fresh bread for lunch. There are larger supermarkets in La Bisbal, which is renowned for its pottery. This town is just 5 km from the house.
The house lies perfect for all of the highlights of Costa Brava. The beginning of the nature park "Massis de les Cadiretes" is right next to the house. Here, there are many beautiful walks, or you can take a ride on the mountain bike or racing bike (rent this in Girona).
If you want a walk on the beach, there are plenty of options. We can recommend the "white towns" Llafranc, Calella de Palafrugell or Tamariu, where there are also some beautiful paths for walking, and – of course - beautiful beaches. If you want a little less people, you simply choose one of the small beaches along the coast road, which is less accessible "calas".
If you like a good lunch, the area is known as "the Catalan Tuscany" where nearly every hilltop in the area has a medieval village with one or several good restaurants, many with outdoor dining in the garden. Here, we can among others mention Peratellada, Palau-Sator with its ring wall around the center, or the town of Pubol where you can visit the Dalí Castle. The area is also known as the "Dali Triangle", and it is well worth to visit his house in Cadaquez (remember swimsuits) and the Museum in Figueres – this can be combined with the weekly market day. We recommend booking tickets in advance as the queues are long in the summer.
A thing every guest must do is a visit to Girona, Catalonia's second largest city, which is very cozy and lively. Start in the market hall in the morning and then go over to the ancient city center on the other side of the river.
For longer excursions, Barcelona is of a great choice, or you can take a ride up to the Pyrenees, perhaps with a stop in Besalú and Olot, and up to Camprodón.

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. For extensive info and ticket reservations follow this link http://www.salvador-dali.org/museus/figueres/en_index.html to the official web-side of the museum in English.
