In the Empordà the paths, farms and small villages coexist with the vibrancy of the tourist centres along the coast.
And one such tourist centre that can be found on the Costa Brava is Platja d'Aro, a municipality that feels modern, vibrant and cosmopolitan. It has fantastic commercial, leisure, sports and cultural offerings, combined with a maritime area of large beaches and small coves.
Very close to the hotel you will find wonderful coves and beaches.
Located just 10 minutes walk from the hotel, parallel to the town centre and very close to its commercial hub, which is full of shops, restaurants, supermarkets and ice-cream parlours.We recommend a walk along the beach where, from one end to the other, you will come across very interesting points of interest such as the beginning of the Camí de Ronda or the Cavall Bernat monolith, a geological rarity that has become one of the symbols of Platja d'Aro.
Accessible only from the Camí de Ronda path that departs from Cala Rovira in the direction of Calonge.The calm and crystalline waters give this cove a very familiar feel.
In its surroundings you will find a historical attraction, the Roman villa of Pla de Palol, whose ruins have been recovered and opened up to the public for free visits.
A small beach in the form of an inlet that is relatively sheltered from the wind, it is located next to the centre of Platja d'Aro, after Cala Rovira, and forms one of the milestones of the beautiful Camí de Ronda path that connects this town with Calonge.
Taking advantage of your stay in Platja d'Aro, we also recommend that you visit some of the most enchanting villages on the Costa Brava:
Declared Site of Historical Interest in 1973.It has been selected by the Catalunya Experience in France as one of the most beautiful villages in Catalonia.Walking through its streets, you will breathe the medieval essence of this beautiful corner of the Costa Brava, situated on top of a hill and inside a fortress.
An old fishing village with a wonderful long history, it is a charming Costa Brava village famed for its heritage and medieval history.
This fishing village will captivate you with its incredible streets that inspired the artist Salvador Dalí. Its bohemian atmosphere, crystal clear waters, narrow streets and buildings painted in shades of white with blue details will not disappoint.This charming little village on the Costa Brava also houses Salvador Dalí's House-Museum and several modernist buildings.
This is one of the few villages on the Costa Brava that still retains the atmosphere that was characteristic of the region's villages before the arrival of tourism.Its narrow streets, sloping tile-roofed houses and some traditional dwellings make this charming old fishing village one of the most alluring locations on the Costa Brava.
Considered one of the most mythical and charming villages of the Costa Brava, thanks in part to its delicious, brightly-coloured prawns.Stroll along its promenade and enjoy a relaxed atmosphere.
It is worth getting lost in its streets and discovering each of its hidden corners, arriving at the castle which has an imposing tower that overlooks the rest of the village.The cobbled streets of this town are sure to captivate you.
In the film '8 Apellidos Catalanes' (‘Spanish Affair 2') the central square of Monells takes centre stage.It is one of the medieval villages of the Empordà region and it only has 200 inhabitants, but it is a must-see for your visit to the Costa Brava.Its unique main square was the enclave of the main merchants of Catalonia in the Middle Ages.
