Attractions, Activities and Sightseeing in the Costa Brava

Good bed and breakfast accommodation is a very important part of your holiday and we know you will not be disappointed with Casa Dos Torres. However whilst you are in Spain why not enjoy some of our excellent local attractions…

Golf in the Costa Brava

There are a number of golf courses in the immediate area of The Costa Brava. The best of them is The P.G.A. Golf de Catalunya situated near Girona airport, about 45 minutes away from Casa Dos Torres. It has twice been the venue for European competitions.

Other highly regarded courses are Emporda Golf and Golf Serres de Pals both near Pals as well as Club Golf d’Aro Mas Nou at Platja dÁro. These last three courses are all within 20 minutes of us in Calella de Palafrugell. Advance booking is advisable but there is not usually a problem getting a tee off time. Visit our links page for further details.

Beautiful Spanish Beaches

Sunset at El Far de Sant Sebastion (beside the lighthouse at Llafranc) is very popular. The sun sets behind Calella and as the shadows lengthen the view gets better and better. A sundowner at the far end of Llafranc is OK too. Playa Castells just off the Palamos road is a lovely big beach for a sundowner also but take your own bottle.

Other Activities Along the Costa Brava

For the forthcoming year, we would like to try and introduce the surrounding countryside to a wider public. With this in mind we have introduced a range of options, as detailed in our Casa Dos Torres Holiday Options. Hot air ballooning has become very popular and Airona  www.aironaglobus.com have a very good flight over the Empordà.

 

Restaurants and Eating Out

There are more Michelin Star restaurants within the immediate area than anywhere else in Spain. Dine at “Els Tinars”, Santa Christina d’Aro. This restaurant has one Michelin star and is therefore excellent but expensive. After years of being the best restaurant in the world, “El Bulli” is closing its doors. It will reopen again sometime in the future but in a completely different format. Taking its place is “Celler de Can Roca” in Girona, now with three stars. A favourite of ours is “Les Cols” on the outskirts of Olot in the Garrotxa region, west of Girona. It makes an ideal day out for lunch in a beautiful part of the world.

The area around here is noted for its cuisine but you need to know where to go to find the best Catalan food. Calella itself has numerous restaurants to suite all tastes. Seafood in particular is a speciality.
