Situated midway between the beautiful picturesque resort of L'Estartit and the historic town of Torroella De Montrgi you can enjoy the sun and sands as well as capturing a real feel for the true rural Catalan lifestyle. You can sample the the excellent cuisine at many of the restaurants set in the rural villages.

A typical example is Peratellada with its many restaurants surrounded by historic Spanish buildings which make a setting to die for. Dine outside or simply soak up the atmosphere in the streets accompanied by a taste of the local music.

If you visit between July and August you can experience the music festival which offers a great sample of traditional Spanish music and attracts acts from all over the world, you really feel like you are a million miles away from home.

The area is full of culture and Figueres (Spanish: Figueras)is only less than 30 mins drive away and is the capital of the Comarca (district) of Alt Empordà, in the province of Girona, Catalonia, Spain.

The town is the birthplace of artist Salvador Dalí, and houses the Teatre-Museu Gala Salvador Dalí, a large museum designed by Dalí himself which attracts many visitors. It is also the birthplace of Narcís Monturiol i Estarriol, inventor of the first combustion powered submarine and anaerobic engine.

Sheltered by the Pyrennes mountains, the region boasts long Sunny days throughout the year and average temperatures in the high 20's right through to the end of October.

If you want an active holiday the resort offers excellent sports activities and is a premier diving centre having some of the best waters for diving in the whole of the Mediterranean.

The Local Area


Torroella de Montgri castle

Castle at Torroella de Montgri The Torroella de Montgri mountain is one of the distinctive features of the Costa Brava region. The mountain stands isolated and can be seen from as far away as Figueres. In the autumn when the birds are migrating south, they seem to use the mountain and the castle as a reference point before continuing their journey towards Africa.

Torroella itself has an historic centre and at one time was an important port on the Ter, but as the bay of Pals silted up and land was reclaimed, contact with the sea was lost. Now you have to go to L'Estartit to reach the sea. The mountain itself separates the bay of Pals to the south - a long long sandy beach that stretches down to Begur, and to the north the bay of Roses/Escala.

Montgris itself is a very rocky mountain and to reach the tower on the top you have to walk (I once tried to drive and got the car stuck because I had to reverse down the narrow gravel lane that I thought would go all the way up). The walking though is relatively difficult - the mountain is dry and the large stones slip and roll under foot or penetrate all but the sturdiest soles (of the shoes). It's definitely not a walk for flipflops.

Torroella De Montgri

Torroella De Montgri


Located 5 minutes away, the old town of Torroella de Montgrí is surrounded by walks following the old Roman defensive wall, remains of which can still be seen. Special mention should be made of Les Bruixes Tower (15th-16th centuries) and Santa Caterina Gate (14th century). Sant Genís Church is a gem of Gothic architecture and should not be missed on a visit to the village. Also outstanding is the Romanesque Sant Antoni Chapel, set in the porticoed Plaça de la Vila Square. Also in this square you will find Casa de la Vila House (15th-16th centuries), with its big sun dial. On Paseo de l'Església Avenue you will find El Mirador Palace (9th-14th centuries), which has been restored and is currently home to a luxury hotel. The village hosts an International Music Festival, along with seasons of live jazz in July and August.
