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.

Stylishly furnished house centrally placed in cosy village
Cal the Ulastra is a holiday house for the family that values a tranquil setting with cosy atmosphere spiced with a little town life. This holiday house lies in the small village of Ullastret, which has a great, authentic atmosphere without the bustling tourist life. The holiday home is well designed and with a small outdoor sun terrace and a small yard, you can enjoy a relaxing holiday in the wonderful Costa Bravaregion.
The owner of the house is professional furnisher, which is not hard to see when you go inside. A nice blue colour and rustic style puts the whole house together and makes the 400-year old townhouse bright and welcoming. The living room is the centre of the house and here the entire family can sit and relax together in the comfortable sofas. In the ceiling, there are beautiful beams and the furniture is rustic and wooden, which gives an authentic and great atmosphere. There is also a flat-screen TV.
In the room next to the living room, you find kitchen and dining room, which has a lovely Provence-like style. There are plenty of amenities, so it is possible to make dinner in the house. In the same room, there is a nice, oval dining table, and if you are there in the winter, there is a cosy fireplace, to light up. You enter the house through a small gate and meet a nice hall with arched ceiling in stone. There is also a cosy living room with sofa and fireplace down here.
Despite the fact that the apartment is located inside a town, room has been found for a small pool where you can relax in the cooling water. There is direct access from the house. Just above the pool, there is a wonderful sun terrace, which has a view over the rooftops. This is an obvious place to enjoy the warm sun and the long, warm evenings.
There are two bedrooms in the holiday home. The first one is very spacious with a nice loft bed. This is somewhat atypical arranged where parents will sleep on the loft and the kids at the bottom. The second bedroom is a typical double room - also very nicely furnished. The holiday house has two nice bathrooms - one with a shower and one with a bathtub. There are air conditioning, fans and heaters, so you can get it as you want regardless of the season.
Cal the Ulastra lies in a small well-kept town. The town is built in a true medieval style in a circle with a tower in the middle.

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.
