Calella de Palafrugell Holiday Apartments - a quieter version of a classic sunsoaked Spanish beach break
Boasting some of the loveliest beaches on the Costa Brava, this town is an elegant place to choose for a seaside Spanish holiday. Calella de Palafrugell is one of the Costa Brava's more sophisticated towns, an elegant place of white buildings and traditional archways. It offers a good range of facilities for anyone who is looking to stay in Calella de Palafrugell holiday rentals, with the chance to experience some of the finest things Catalonia has to offer. One of the major reasons to book a stay in Calella de Palafrugell apartments is the annual Cantada d'Havaneres (Singing of Havaneres) Festival. This local celebration has a decidedly nautical flavour, as Havaneres are sea shanties. Ron cremat is the usual tipple to accompany this type of singing, a drink which is basically rum, that favourite drink of sailors, flambéed with coffee beans in terra cotta dishes. The festival takes place every July, making this an especially interesting time to visit.

Of course, with the sea playing such a prominent part in life in this corner of Catalonia, there is plenty of opportunity to enjoy water sports and similar activities. People staying in Calella de Palafrugell holiday villas who want to enjoy what the sea has to offer should head to the nearby beaches of Llafranc and Tamariu, from where they can take pleasure boat cruises or enjoy a spot of kayaking. Anyone who wants to get under the water can also participate in some scuba diving or snorkelling. The architecture and history of the town is also well worth exploring. Les Voltes are situated close to the beaches of Port Bo and Calau, these 19th century buildings used to be used by fisherman to shelter from the rain.
