Roses Costa Brava Self Catering Villa for holiday rental with use of pool and close to beach

Roses Costa Brava Spain by dayBay of Roses by night

Forty kilometres over the French border into Spanish Catalonia, nestling in the Southern foothills of the Pyrenees, lies the magnificent Bay of Roses,
Canyelles Beach, Spain Sea View from Villa to rent

the largest sandy beach at this end of Mediterranean Spain. With a central nature reserve preserving its natural beauty, fishing, the main industry of the bay, has traditionally centred around the harbour of the small town of Roses at its Northern end .

CANYELLES PETITES with its ‘Blue Star’ beach caters particularly well for those visitors who seek a quiet base for their holiday. The road serving the village terminates only 1 kilometre further on and although there are several small bars and restaurants, a paper shop, cash point and 2 small supermarkets, the village supports none of the other more ‘in your face’ tourist activities usually associated with holidaying in Spain.

Once the oldest town in Catalonia, Roses is a living museum which retains vestiges of the many cultures that have inhabited its 3000 year past, ranging from megalithic Dolmens, through the 8th Century B.C Greek traders who named the town after their home island of Rhodes, to the Romans who subsequently settled in and developed the area. Many of these can be viewed when taking one of the many ‘Tourist Train’ rides which start from the town.

Surrounded by Nature Reserves, which include the internationally renowned bird and animal sanctuary of the Aiguamolls de l’Emporda, the 2nd largest park in Northern Spain, the bay of Roses provides facilities for every activity which its visitors could require. These range from land based recreations such as horse riding across the Aiguamolls, skydiving at one of the worlds leading parachuting centres in Empuriabrava, micro-lighting, go-carting or playing golf at one of the local area courses, to the many water based activities for which the area is renowned.

The bay, which is particularly well known for the quality of its windsurfing, is flanked by the rocky cliffs and coves from which the Costa Brava derives its name; the crystal clear waters of this coast provides superb opportunities for underwater diving, either using your own equipment or with one of the several local scuba diving schools.

There are also opportunities for sailing, water-skiing, deep sea fishing para-sailing or for exploring the ‘Blue Flag’ bays using hired jet skis or one of the many boats providing local excursions, whilst those with children will probably find that a day spent at the large local Aqua Park, with its many water slides, pools and water based climbing wall will prove to be a must!

In addition, as well as providing year-round opportunities for hill walking, mountain biking and rock climbing, the nearby Pyrenees provide winter visitors with good snow skiing only 1 ½ hours from Roses.

Roses, whilst retaining its characteristic Catalonian charm, provides a complete infrastructure of restaurants, cafes and bars and a wide range of shops which provides for all the needs of its 12,000 residents and 70,000 visitors. More shopping opportunities can be found at nearby Ampuribrava which is reputed to be the largest residential marina in the world, whilst more sophisticated shopping requirements can be catered for by visiting either Gerona or to Barcelona the capital of Catalunia; local bus companies provide regular trips to visit these cities and view their attractions.

The town of Figueres, which is only 10 kilometres from Roses and provides rail access to France and the rest of Spain is also well worth a visit. As well as shops comparable in quality to those in Gerona, the town is also the home of the internationally renowned Dali Museum; souvenirs of this artist who was born locally, and who produced some of his most famous works at nearby Port Ligat are widely available in the town.
