Serra de Daro Accommodations - Villa - 6500 sq ft / 603 sq m
The villa is situated among sunflower and hay fields in the countryside of the Costa Brava, in the Baix Empordà region of northern Catalonia. It is just 80 km from the French border, about an hour and a half drive north of Barcelona. Very well connected. The nearest airports and train stations are Girona, Barcelona and Perpignan (France).
The region is known for its small hill towns situated around church or plaza (Besalú, La Bisbal d’Empordà, Torroella de Montgrí…). Each midevial village with its own catalan character upholding traditions of delicious food and fantastic local wines.
The region is a photographer’s paradise. Each vista is a photo waiting to be framed.
Costa Brava is full of small beaches (we call them “cales”), with pine trees that reach to the sea along sandy or stone beaches. Ideal for family holidays. Each day of ones stay could be spent at a different beach. While some enjoy being landside, scubadivers can easily be incised by the marine reserve surrounding the Islas Medes. Local operators take divers to the rocky coast for an opportunity to see gorgonians and many species of Mediterranean marine life. Certification and Discover Scuba are available by many operators.
A perfect villa for golf lovers. The house is located in one of the best places to practice this sport. The closest golf course is about 10 minutes by car.
For those who want to discover the work of our international artists, visit close by museums in Barcelona (Picasso Museum) and Figueres (Dali Museum). The villa is within the “triangle” of Dali’s Spain, near Figueras, home of the Dali Museum, Púbol, home of Gala’s castle, and Port Lligat, Dali’s seaside home.
Maps and schedules for area activities are kept at the villa for your convenience.
Once through the secured gate, pass the sculpture garden to the villa. The pool and summer kitchen are the next surprises that a wait. The poolside pergola offers shade and a corner for late evening conversations. A removable fence is available for those with small children to isolate the pool from the rest of the garden. A covered outdoor area next to the villa is a perfect place for outside meals, more conversation and relaxation.
