Catalunya villas

Mark's verdict:

One of our favourite regions of Spain, Catalunya has family appeal stamped all over it – whether you’ve got toddlers in search of beaches, active kids looking for Pyrenean mountain adventure or teenagers keen to explore nearby Barcelona. This superb collection of villas covers all bases – and each one has a private pool.

Vintage Travel says

With so much to offer, Catalunya is the perfect destination for a self-catering family holiday.

  • private pools
  • stunning scenery

White-water rafting, hot-air ballooning and mountain biking are just some of the sports to be enjoyed amidst the verdant foothills of the Pyrenees whilst the dramatic coastline, which gives rise to the name Costa Brava, boasts the most stunning scenery with fragrant, pine-clad hills tumbling into the crystalline waters of the Mediterranean below.

Vintage Travel has a selection of excellent properties nestled into the hillside around picturesque, unspoilt fishing villages such as Tamariu, Llafranc and Aigua Blava. We cater for all family sizes with villas ranging from two up to seven bedrooms – all within an hour’s drive of Girona Airport, two hours from Barcelona.

Each villa boasts a private pool and many are within walking distance of unspoilt hidden coves and child-friendly sandy beaches with a sprinkling of low-key, family-run restaurants creating a laid-back atmosphere.

With colourful local markets offering fresh produce and locally-caught fish, tempting patisseries, vineyards and bodegas, self catering is easy and conducive to al fresco dining.

Culture lovers will never tire of Catalunya’s rich heritage. Explore the Greek-Roman ruins at Empuriès or marvel at the inspirational Museu Teatre of Dalí in Figueres. Vibrant Barcelona is within easy reach too.

We offer the flexibility for you to arrange your own flights or we can look after all your travel arrangements too.
