EURO LASER SAILING COMPETION

In 2018 the annual laser competition (Euro Laser Masters Cup) takes place here in Calella from the 12th-15th of April. Well over 100 competitors turn up each year and it is quite a sight to see so many small craft out in the sea off Llafranc and Calella.

GUIDED CATALUÑA NATURE TRAILS.

Wednesday 25th April -Wednesday 30th of May.

Running throughout the entire month of May, Jane and John are conducting local nature trails either on foot or by bicycle. There will be at least three per week and can be a combination of either walking or cycling if so preferred. May is a great time to see the local countryside with a beautiful array of wild flowers in the fields and hedgerows. Suggested trails are by foot down to Palamos via Castell beach, Cami de Ronda from Llafrance to Tamariu, forest walk up to Fitor which is that part of the Gavares hills above Palafrugell or the Costal path around Begur. Because it is fairly flat, cycling is an easy option and of course you can cover a lot more in a day out.
The price for these guided trails is 375 euros per person including dinner on two nights of a 5 day stay or 550 euros per person including dinner on three nights for a 7 day break. Transport to and from Girona airport and bike hire is included. There is a single supplement of 50€.
*Please note taxes will have to be added to the above rates. Taxes currently are: 10% IVA (VAT) plus a tourist tax of 0.45€ pppn.
If there was anybody wanting a pick up from Barcelona airport then an additional 50 euros per journey would apply.

 

CULTURAL VISITS: VISIT TO THE ABBEY OF MONTSERRAT, THE GREEK RUINS OF EMPURIES and FORT SANT FERRAN at FIGUERES.

Dates: Starting on Saturdays throughout the months of April and May 2018. This would consist of three separate visits over a week. Not everybody would necessarily be able to arrive on a Saturday, but the visits would roll round so they were not repeated less than once a week. Therefore, a stay from a Monday to a Monday, for example, would be quite acceptable also. The price of this package of 7 nights is 500 euros per person and would include all transport costs, Girona airport pick up, entrance fees to the places of interest and three evening meals. There is a 50€ single supplement.

If anybody has already done the above excursions then an alternative trip can be arranged.

 

GIRONA FLOWER FESTIVAL. (12th-20th of May 2018).

The Girona Flower Festival runs this year from Saturday May the 12th through to Sunday the 20th. Obviously it is better to see it at the beginning when the flowers are fresher but each display is meant to last for the full 9 days. Similar to previous years we have a 5 night or a 7 night package. For a 5 night break during this period from the 10th to 24th of May we offer transfers to and from Girona airport, dinner with wine on two of the evenings and transport to and from Girona town to see the flowers. The total price of this is 375 euros per person plus taxes. This represents a considerable saving over our normal charges. For a 7 night break the price would be 550 euros per person and would include dinner on 3 of the evenings including the Girona airport transfers. There is a 50€ single supplement.

SPANISH FORMULA ONE GRAND PRIX BARCELONA.

Weekend of the 11th, 12th & 13th May. Coinciding with the start of the Girona Flower Festival offer I also propose to visit The Spanish Formula One Grand Prix at Barcelona. It is less than one hour down the road. A one day ticket on Sunday 13th to see the race would cost about 200 euros, but this would be seated. (Sitting on the grass is about 90€!) The face value of the ticket would be added to the 5 or 7 nights package price (see above). There would be no additional fee for transport to the race.

Please note: a combination of any of the above ie. bit of sightseeing and a ramble are also possible!
