Rent L'Estartit Holiday Apartments and L'Estartit Villas
A place popular with water sports fans, L'Estartit is set amongst some of Catalonia's most beautiful countryside. L'Estartit is a small town on Catalonia's Costa Brava which has been popular with tourists since the 1960s. Known particularly for its appeal to water sports enthusiasts, the natural beauty of the area around the town is outstanding. Many people staying in L'Estartit holiday villas come to the town to enjoy the waters off the coast. There are plenty of places to try sports such as kayaking and canoeing, as well as more daring activities such as scuba diving or sailing. Many visitors enjoy boat trips to the Medes Islands, which lie just off the coast here.
These islands are an important nature reserve for the western Mediterranean, and form an archipelago just over a mile off-shore from L'Estartit. They are uninhabited, and over the last three decades the wildlife of the islands has revived considerably since the islands were awarded protected status in 1983. Diving and sailing around the islands is a peaceful and beautiful experience, and divers should look out for the groupers which breed in the underwater caverns. Another reason many people end up booking a visit to L'Estartit apartments is golf. There are some superb courses in this part of Catalonia, and two are within easy reach of L'Estartit. The American-designed Emporda Course is particularly good, with 27 holes, artificial lakes and bunkers making it of medium difficulty.
Sport, nature and sandy beaches, all from your L'Estartit Holiday Rental
L'Estartit holiday rentals also make a great base from which to explore the wider area. There are some lovely coves and bays to discover on the coast, while much of the countryside around the town is ideal for hiking or cycling. Pine groves and rolling hills form a pleasant backdrop to exploring the area on foot or by bike, and there are a number of trails which begin and end in the town. Those who are visiting L'Estartit holiday rentals who are more culturally inclined should visit the area in July. This is when an international music festival takes place in nearby Torroella de Montgri. Established in 1980, this festival attracts classical musicians from all across the world, and is held in three of the town's historical buildings: the church of Saint Genis, the Gothic-Renaissance town square and a former 17th century Augustin monastery. It is almost impossible not to relax when staying in L’Estartit holiday rentals. Whether a visitor wants to explore the beauties of the ocean, or enjoy some great local seafood while listening to great music, they can do it here. If you liked the glorious Spanish sunshine, you'll love a stay in Sipan Holiday Villas.
