  About Empordà >Empordà encompasses the Costa Brava and the rolling plain behind it in north-easternmost Catalonia. Costa Brava translates as ‘rugged coast’, a name that belies the presence of beautiful sandy beaches between the rocky headlands. Inland, medieval villages of honey-coloured stone stand amid vineyards, cork-oak woods and fields of sunflowers and rice. It was in Empordà that the sardana – the Catalan national dance, accompanied by a 3-holed flute – originated, and it is a common sight at fiestas. As in the rest of Catalonia, you will hear Catalan – one of Spain’s four official languages – spoken more commonly than Castilian. Catalonia is renowned throughout Spain for its gastronomy, and Empordà boasts some superb restaurants. The local rice features in both meat and fish dishes, while sauces made from tomato, pepper and aubergine are used in many recipes. Combinations of mar y muntanya (sea and mountain) are also common on menus, be it lobster with partridge or chicken with prawns.
 
This Holiday in a nutshell
  • charming farmhouse apartments in a beguiling corner of Catalonia
  • gentle but scenic walking and cycling, route notes provided
  • just 10km from the coast
  • 7 days' car hire included if you are travelling by air

Unspoiled Empordà in northern Catalonia is a land of contrasting charms, from the coves, cliffs and beaches of the Costa Brava to the timeless villages, vineyards and fields of sunflowers of the gently rolling inland plain.
We loved the fact that there was so much to see and do within a 15 or 20-minute drive. I'd highly recommend going in May, as we did - the fields were full of poppies and the roadsides were coloured purple thanks to the big clumps of mallow.
