By | Noticias, Turismo rural Girona

En los siglos XIX y XX, la Guardia Civil y otros cuerpos de seguridad, recorrían el litoral de la Costa Brava, siguiendo unos senderos pegados al mar, para prevenir actividades como el contrabando. Hoy, estos senderos se han convertido en uno de los atractivos de la Costa Brava, ya que son caminos que pemiten excursiones perfectas al borde del mar, cruzando calas y playas increíbles, acantilados, miradores y disfrutando de la naturaleza.

A hotel to visit the best beaches of the Costa Brava

By | Noticias, Turismo rural Girona | No Comments

With the arrival of good weather, one of the activities that most of our customers seek is to visit the beaches, and it is very close to our hotel where you will find the best beaches and coves of the Costa Brava.

Why settle for a beach on the Costa Brava when you can visit all of them?

We are located very close to the area known as the “Empordanet”, a small territory of the Baix Empordà region that includes one of the most beautiful coastal areas of the Girona coastline.

Less than 30 km away you will find the beautiful beaches and coves of the town of Begur

Some as famous as Aiguablava, with its crystalline waters, Sa Tuna, a corner where you can still breathe the essence of fishing village, Sa Riera, the most extensive beach, animated and of fine sand, Aiguafreda, for lovers of diving, or paradise of nudism, the incredible and unmistakable cove of Illa Roja.

Almost at the same distance you can visit the magnificent beaches of Palafrugell

The picturesque coves of the nucleus of Calella de Palafrugell, popular scenario of the habaneras, the crowded beaches of Llafranc, Tamariu or the capricious inlets and outlets of Aiguaxelida.

Do you like scuba diving? The Illes Medes are very close

If you love diving, you can greatly enjoy your hobby by practicing it in the Illes Medes, a group of protected islands in the town of l’Estartit, which you will find just over 25 minutes from our hotel.

About 30 km south, enjoy the beaches of Palamós

To the south, the beaches and coves of Palamós await you, some are as extensive as the central beach and others smaller and more intimate to which you can reach through the path that links this town with the neighboring towns of Calella de Palafrugell and Calonge. Wonders such as Cala Estreta, Cap de Planes, Roca Bona, labeled as nudists and others with all services and easy access, such as Torre Valentina de Calonge-Sant Antoni.

We have a perfect location to visit the beaches of Alt Empordà … L’Escala, Roses, LLançá, Port de la Selva, and of course Cadaqués

If you want to get away a little more, we recommend you visit the north of the Costa Brava, the Alt Empordà because it hides true wonders, remote, virgin beaches, with little influx of visitors, in which your privacy and joy are guaranteed.

Discover the beaches from the fishing village of l’Escala, known for its famous and rich anchovies, it overlooks the bay of Roses, cataloged as one of the 25 most beautiful in the world and owner of the wildest beaches and seabed with the longest life you will find in the Rostella, Montjoi or Joncols creeks.

In the direction of the French border, located in the Cap de Creus Natural Park, you can enjoy the beaches of El Port de la Selva, the secluded Taballera cove, Tamariua or Fornells, the diverse beaches of Llançà, the great and wide beach Garbet of Colera, or the multiple, special and unique beaches of Cadaqués, the beautiful and whitewashed white village, of cobbled streets, that popularized The genius of Salvador Dalí.

Also the southern Costa Brava at your fingertips … Platja d’Aro, Sant Feliu de Guíxols, Tossa de Mar

Do not forget that the Costa Brava has 200 km. of coastline, and to the south the busy and lively beaches of Platja d’Aro await you, the green littoral of Sant Feliu de Guíxols and S’Agaró, or Tossa de Mar, another of the towns of Girona most frequented by divers with coves so known as the Mar Menuda or Futadera. You can visit the famous coves and beaches of Lloret de Mar such as Sa Caleta, and finally reach the starting point of the Costa Brava, Blanes, with beautiful beaches such as Sa Boadella and Cala Bona.

* Cala Belladona in Castell-Platja d’Aro

And if after this review of the best beaches of the Costa Brava, you still want more sun and sea baths, you can always take them in our heated pools, one freshwater and one saltwater. We will wait for you!

Do you know what the Dalinian Triangle is?

By | Noticias, Turismo rural Girona | No Comments

The imprint of the genius Salvador Dalí on the Costa Brava is profound and representative of his talent and personality. Many are the points where you can still hear stories about Dalí and Gala, where we can enjoy their works or understand their personality a little better by visiting some of their properties. The Dalinian Triangle is a route that allows you to approach Dalí like no other part of the world.

The route links Figueres, Cadaqués – Portlligat and Pera, passing by the obligatory visits to the Dalí Teatre-Museu, the Salvador Dalí House-Museum and Púbol Castle.

We started in Figueres, with one of the most visited museums in the world (according to The Art Newspaper), the Dalí Theater-Museum, designed and supervised in its construction by the artist himself, is now also the tomb of the author himself in a small crypt under the Theater-Museum. In this Museum, with important works of his career, each space is a work of art for the combination of paintings, sculptures and curiosidades.

Near Cadaqués we find Portlligat and there the Salvador Dalí House-Museum, residence of the great artist from 1930 to the death of his wife Gala in 1982. Visiting his usual work workshop is quite an experience, but you can also see the house where they lived and the different exterior spaces.

In the town of Púbol that belongs to the municipality of Pera, we find the Casa-Museo Castillo Gala Dalí, a medieval building that Dali prepared with care and special detail for the rest and refuge of his wife and muse, Elena Ivanovana Diakonova, better known as Gala.

A museum that in addition to allowing the visit to all the rooms, has some works of the artist, is the Mausoleum of Gala and the last workshop that Dalí used.

A gift of Dalí to Gala that she accepted but with a condition, that only went to visit it to l Castle with handwritten invitation, something that Dalí accepted with pleasure, since he understood it as the very principle of courteous love.

Everything in the Gala Dalí Castle House-Museum, is surprising, the Hall of the shields, the Piano Hall, the Gala room, the library or the attic with the collection of haute-couture dresses from Gala, signed by great French designers, the terrace, the romantic garden, a haven of peace full of winding roads and romantic corners, which houses the 4 sculptures of long-legged elephants and the pool with the busts of Wagner … and of course the Mausoleum.

If you want to complete the experience of the Dalinian triangle we recommend adding two other nearby points of interest.

Very close to Madremanya, you will find the small ermita de Nuestra Señora de los Ángeles or Santuario dels Àngels, where on August 8, 1958, the wedding was celebrated secretly, after years of relationship, by Dalí and Gala, they sought privacy and away of what could have been the most mediatic wedding of the time. Without advertising or interference, they looked for a remote place, which is, at the same time, an incredible viewpoint of Baix Empordà and Alt Empordà.

We also recommend visiting the Pla de Tudela, with one of the most breathtaking views of the Mar d’Amunt, there we can enjoy the whimsical geological forms that together with an incredible color combination, make up a unique landscape that came to inspire Salvador Dalí. Remember!

The Racó de Madremanya, due to its location, is an excellent option if you are looking for a hotel to visit the Dalinian triangle.

Enjoy the Dalinian Triangle and lose track of time admiring the beauty of Salvador Dalí’s work and life.
