Villas in Catalonia

Mark and David's verdict:

Forget all you've heard about the Costa Brava. The northern, knobbly, genuinely 'Brava' - or wild - stretch of coast is as scenic as anywhere on the Med but without coachloads of Brits. The resorts are tiny, the food superb, the walking and cycling trails well defined and, when you fancy a change, the foothills of the Pyrenees beckon.

PCI Holidays says

Many of our clients return to Catalonia year after year, enchanted by the unspoilt countryside, the beautiful seascapes and the fabulous choice of local restaurants. There is plenty to do here, including watersports, beach activities and great shopping. The majestic Pyrenees lie within a two-hour drive of the coast and we also recommend spending a day in Catalonia’s handsome capital, Girona.

Since PCI Holidays was established in 1989, we have maintained Catalonia as our heartland. We offer a wide choice of properties to rent, from two-bedroom apartments with communal pools to huge villas with private pools sleeping up to 14 – and just about everything in between.

Choose from the charming medieval village of Pals and its nearby sandy beaches, the pine-fringed bays of Calella and Llafranc, the green hills of the Calonge area and the old town of Begur and its nearby fishing villages.

We have offices in the UK and in Pals itself. Our experienced staff have an intimate knowledge of the region and can provide detailed information about each property, enabling you to choose the right location for an unforgettable holiday. We can also help you with information about local fiestas, car hire and special interest activities, all of which will allow you to discover and enjoy this wonderful part of “hidden” Spain.
