Villas in Costa Brava - the ultimate sun, sea and sand destination
Costa Brava was given its name by Ferran Agulló, a journalist from Girona, when referring to the ruggedness of this stretch of Mediterranean coastline. The word ‘costa’ is the Spanish and Catalan word for coast, while ‘brava’ means wild or rugged. Costa Brava extends from the river Tordera, near Blanes, to Banyuls in France. Spain’s rich heritage and history spreads even to this popular tourist destination as is evidenced by the walled medieval capital, Gerona.
The Costa Brava is home to a host of stunning golden beaches and secluded bays surrounded by rugged cliffs. Throughout the summer, this Spanish coastal gem is blessed with glorious heat and sunshine, perfect for beach holidays. The average temperature for this region is about 24 degrees Celsius, although during the height of summer, it can climb as high as 30 degrees. Accommodation can be found in the form of Costa Brava villas and Costa Brava holiday apartments set not far away from golden sandy beaches in the bustling Lloret De Mar. This modern resort is only 35 miles north of Barcelona and is teeming with bars and clubs that stay open until the small hours of the morning. Catering for families as well as couples, singles and groups of partygoers and friends, Lloret De Mar is an extremely appealing and popular holiday spot in the region. Retaining some of its fishing village roots, Tossa De Mar can be found a few miles farther north. It is perfect for those seeking a more relaxed and laid back holiday experience, as its party and entertainment scene is compartively toned down, especially at night. Travellers to Tossa De Mar come primarily for the beach and sun and typically stay in a wonderful Costa Brava villa or seaside apartment.
