Santa Susanna Villas

One of the newest destinations on the Costa Brava is the charming little seaside resort town of Santa Susanna. Located within easy distance of Barcelona and Girona airports, Santa Susanna is flanked by low hills, river-beds and the Mediterranean Sea. It is also easily accessible by road, sea and train.The town has a history that dates back to the 12th century and has traditionally been home to rural farming communities and has many old and charming farm-houses and buildings which have been beautifully restored to accommodate modern visitors. Old flour mills and parks are ideal for a leisurely stroll, while the many historical towers and small fortresses are witness to the region's colorful history.

There are also several charming old chapels, churches and monasteries, lively marketplaces, arts and crafts events and most important: a few kilometers of pure, golden beach sands bordering the stunning blue sea. The little promenades and marinas offer good restaurants, local wines and snacks. The main boulevard, lined by shady trees and shopping areas, is a gathering place for tourists to dine or have a drink al fresco in the evenings or for lunch. The weekly market is another attraction.

Santa Susanna has a wide range of villa rentals on offer, ranging from luxury to budget. For groups and families traveling with children or seniors, this is the ideal location for a quiet holiday and if you want livelier options, you can commute to Barcelona or Girona and hit the night-spots once in a way! One tip is to check whether your villa rental is available for groups of youngsters, as many rentals in this region are designed and let only to families or groups of people above the age of 25. Most villas have designated parking areas, sun-lounges, decks, beach access and are fully furnished, with all modern amenities.

Semi-detached villas are another cost-effective option if you don't mind sharing the grounds and pool with other groups. Since most villas are within very easy reach of the beach, a variety of recreational activities are available, including water-sport like wind-surfing, sailing, scuba, jetski etc Cycling, walking, horse-riding, tennis, mountain-hiking, trekking and other activities keep the adventurous crowd occupied.

A full calendar of cultural events is available with the tourism authorities for those who are interested – these include shows and events relating to art, music, magic, literature, culinary arts, festivals, fairs and dances including the local “Sardana” dance competitions. Christmas, Easter and other religious holidays bring their own set of events and your villa services will alert you on those.Whether you choose a self-catering villa or decide to pamper yourself with help-staff, you'll find the food here a wonderful blend of Catalan and Mediterranean style cuisine. Local produce, fresh seafood and vegetables are the main ingredients.For a holiday that combines all that's best of Spain, try the Santa Susanna experience!
