We love eastern Catalonia for its laid-back charm. The rolling Empordà plain is dotted with market towns and medieval villages of honey-coloured stone, linked by quiet lanes that pass tiny vineyards, cornfields and olive groves. This harmonious landscape meets the Mediterranean along a delightfully unspoiled stretch of the Costa Brava, where you can linger over lunch in colourful fishing villages, and seek out an ideal swimming spot in secluded, sandy coves.

And then there’s the extraordinary quality of the light, which seems to have cast a spell on this entire corner of Spain, and has inspired countless artists, not least Salvador Dalí. You’ll find reminders of his many links with Catalonia at every turn: the 14th-century castle in Púbol which he bought for his wife; his house near the whitewashed fishing village of Cadaqués which is now a museum; and the flamboyant Theatre-Museum that he built in Figueres, the town of his birth, a huge, extravagant monument to Surrealism.
