Villas in Llafranc
Located on the beautiful Costa Brava, Llafranc is a delightful Spanish holiday destination. All the holiday villas in the Llafranc are within easy reach of the fabulous beaches and the attractive promenade. Outside of July and August, Llafranc is quiet and peaceful and conducive to relaxing somnolence while enjoying the sweet scent of pine that permeates the area. Villas set closer to the beach tend to be in the busier end of town, whereas if you want to escape the bustle head inland towards the Kim Camping area.Gorgeous Spanish holiday villas

Travellers and activities
Llafranc is built around a horseshoe-shaped bay, with rocky cliffs embracing crystalline waters, and long stretches of blonde sand in between. The sea here is clean and safe, and the soft sand is perfect for children to play in and for the grownups to lie on and soak up the rays. Unusually for a Spanish seaside resort town, the buildings which line the shore are low-rise and attractive and give the place a more homely, friendly feel than some other parts of the Costa Brava.Llafranc for walkers
For those who have explored the town and wish to widen their horizons, there are plenty of trails to explore in the surrounding area. The next town along, just to the south of Llafranc, Calella de Palafrugell, is only 30 minutes’ walk away over spectacular cliffs and countryside. This pretty fishing village is well worth the walk, and while you’re there don’t miss its beautiful botanic gardens. Or head north inland, where you’ll reach the little village of Tamariu, a little further away but still only about 4 kilometres as the crow flies.Llafranc for foodies
Llafranc may be small, but it’s big enough to boast a Michelin star restaurant, Casamar. Enjoy a very special dining experience here, overlooking the horseshoe bay of Llafranc, and don’t forget to delve into their excellent cellar options – wine is treated very seriously at Casamar. But for those looking for something a little more down to earth, don’t miss the Fiesta de la Garoinada, the Sea Urchin Festival, from January to March. Local restaurants offer special sea urchin related dishes, all fresh and locally caught. Arriving at other times of the year? Check out the little eateries near the bay for affordable and delightful food options, locally sourced and freshly caught.
Salvador Dali, the surrealist painter, was said to have been a huge fan of Llafranc, and a frequent visitor to the town.
