Organising your next holiday on the Costa Brava in Spain means enjoying a typically Mediterranean climate. Throughout the year, this city in Spain has an average temperature of 19°C. During the summer season (July-August), temperatures can even reach 30°C. For a sunny beach holiday, it is advisable to visit Costa Brava during this period. Even at night, you can enjoy the terrace of your villa, apartment or house on the Costa Brava. However, in autumn (Oct.-Nov.) and winter (Dec.-Feb.), the Costa Brava still offers a mild and pleasant climate.
A holiday in the province of Girona, Spain, is also an opportunity to experience unique adventures in an idyllic destination. For example, you can visit the beautiful fishing village of Cadaques and go on a fantastic walk in the middle of the Cap de Creus nature park. Likewise, visit the secluded coves and family beaches of the seaside town of Roses. On the Girona coast, the medieval town of Begur stands out for its many 'casas de indianos' (stately houses in the Indian style). Begur also offers its visitors a breathtaking view of the Mediterranean.
In any case, the Costa Brava is a privileged destination where you can find heavenly coves, authentic historic villages, beautiful natural parks and small fishing ports with a delightfully old-fashioned atmosphere. To make the most of your stay in this region of Catalonia in Spain, choose the best apartment, house or villa rental with the help of Emerald Stay.
The Costa Brava is a charming and authentic seaside resort and is a must-see holiday destination during a stay in Spain. The town is located in the northeast of Catalonia, in the province of Girona.
The Costa Brava covers an area of 255 km, bordered by the town of Cadaques (to the north) and the town of Blanes (to the south).
The Costa Brava takes advantage of its privileged geographical situation to allow visitors to easily reach this city in northern Spain from France (by road) or from Barcelona airport. In any case, the Costa Brava has many charming villages that are well worth a visit. Cadaques, Rosas, Escala, Empuriabrava, Begur, and many more will certainly convince you.
If you are planning your next holiday in Costa Brava, you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to accommodation. There are many apartments and houses, or even hotels, available for rent in the city. However, for a successful stay in Spain, Emerald Stay recommends you choose a luxury rental. In this case, your exclusive apartment, private villa or exceptional house by the sea will have unique assets.
Note for example the bedrooms equipped with the essential luxury bed linen and the cosy bathrooms. Also check the presence of a private swimming pool, spacious terrace or landscaped garden for your holiday home on the Costa Brava. If you're not sure which one to choose, don't hesitate to ask the Emerald Stay concierges for advice.
In any case, the Costa Brava is made up of several characterful villages that will satisfy your desire for a change of scenery. Choosing a contemporary 4-bedroom (and 4-bathroom) villa in Aiguablava offers breathtaking views, with the Mediterranean Sea as a backdrop. A sumptuous 7-bedroom, an en-suite villa on the small hillside of Calella de Palafrugell, on the other hand, will give you the chance to recharge your batteries in the middle of nature.
Similarly, a luxury house with direct access to the beach of Aiguablava and the Port d'Esclanyà will give you hypnotic views of the breathtaking landscape. While a traditional house in Begur will reward you with a quiet atmosphere and enchanting surroundings.

Costa Brava has several unusual places that deserve your attention. The town of l'Escala, for example, is characterised by a beautiful protected natural area, ideal for yachtsmen. The town of Empuriabrava, on the other hand, offers a lot of charm thanks to its beaches and coves with crystal clear waters. Empuriabrava also has a multitude of seaside villas.
Also, consider Empuriabrava's neighbouring town, Roses (or Rosas). The privileged geographical location of this town (sheltered by two natural parks) makes it an ideal destination for an authentic holiday in Spain while remaining close to the French border.
Of course, this is not an exhaustive list of the most beautiful places on the Costa Brava. If you are having trouble choosing the right city for your Costa Brava holiday, ask Emerald Stay's travel assistants for advice. Depending on your availability and the number of bedrooms you need in your holiday home in Spain, we will help you choose the ideal place to rent your exceptional apartment, house or villa.
Costa Brava also offers a myriad of activities to do throughout your stay or a week or a weekend.
For your holiday in the Costa Brava in the winter, you can, surprisingly, plan activities in the mountains. For example, you can take a walk on the slopes of the nearby ski resorts (La Molina, Masella, Núria and Vallter 2000, Guils de Cerdanya). Or in the summer, can also hike along the coastal paths overlooking the coves and beaches. A mountain bike ride is also a good family activity.
To discover the natural wealth of the region, opt for outings to the three natural parks of the Costa Brava. The maritime and terrestrial park of Cap de Creus is home to many natural and cultural gems. The Aiguamolls d'Empordà nature park (south of Empuriabrava) is a must for horse and bird lovers. Finally, the last natural park brings together three spectacular areas: Montgri, Islas Medes and Baix Ter.
Another highlight of your stay on the Costa Brava is walking the Ronde paths (an experience you can also enjoy with your children).
You could also spend the day swimming, either in one of the many stunning beaches of the region, or in the private swimming pool of your apartment, house or villa!
You may also be tempted to visit the small medieval villages of the Costa Brava. Pals, Peratallada, Palau Sator, Ullastret, Begur, etc., you will find various historical monuments that will make your stay in Catalonia a real moment of discovery.
A summer holiday on the Costa Brava cannot do without swimming in the Mediterranean Sea. One of the most famous beaches on the Costa Brava is Port Bo beach in Calella de Palafrugell. The small boats washed up on its sand give this place a postcard look.
You can also discover the beautiful Cap Roig beach in Calonge. This dreamy beach in the village of Sant Antoni has calm waters surrounded by pine trees.
Likewise, consider the small 80-metre beach of Sa Tuna (5 km from Begur), which is defined by a remarkable cove overlooking crystal-clear waters.
