Overview

About the property

Wonderful view from this convenient 2 bedroom family apartment in Cadaques

A simple but comfortable first floor Catalan holiday home on the sunny side of Cadaques with a wonderful view, over looking the iconic little church and bay. Situated on a little street, surrounded by local people, this is the ideal place to become Catalan for a while!

A shallow flight of stairs leads you up from the street to a twin and a double bedroom, two bathrooms and a well equipped kitchen. A reasonable sized lounge and dining area is dominated by a large window that frames the stunning view out over Cadaques, the bay and surrounding mountains.

On the balcony there can be few better places to enjoy a late breakfast or evening drinks before heading off on the short 10 minute walk to the centre of Cadaques and its wonderful selection of restaurants, bars and shops.

Salvador Dali, Picasso and a host of other famous artists have discovered the unique light of Cadaques that has inspired some of the worlds most famous paintings.

Sea, mountain and village panorama. A comfortable first floor Catalan apartment on the sunny side of Cadaques with a wonderful view, over looking the iconic little church and bay. Situated on a little street, surrounded by local people - come and be Catalan for a while!

This north eastern part of Spain has a wild and varied beauty that has brought people here from far and wide for centuries. The flat delta lands of the south give way to fertile hills which lead to the massive Pyrenees, all dotted with characterful small towns and villages along with the big exciting city of Barcelona and the equally charming Girona.

We have been trying to keep this part of Spain a secret but with the arrival of cheap flights to Barcelona (easyJet) and Gerona, Perpignan and Beziers (Ryanair) more and more people are finding out about this pleasant land. With its own language, repressive history and unusual festivals, Catalunya has a sure identity of which it is very proud

Tip: Don't ask for Paella here - you'll be told to go on holiday to Costa del Sol..........!

Cadaques is in the far north-eastern corner of Spain where the Pyrennees mountains tumble into the Mediterranean sea. Its still a white washed village, straggling a rocky bay, reached by a twisty mountain road that has protected it from the ravages of vulgar development that so much of Spain has suffered. Its major claim to fame is that it was the home of the world famous Spanish painter Salvador Dali, whose museum home (only 10 minutes walk from the apartment) you can now visit.

Cadaques is a busy retreat for the people of Barcelona and the south of France throughout the year, particularly at weekends. During July and August there are a variety of music and arts festivals, along with street entertainment. At the last count there were nearly 100 restaurants and bars in this small village so you can eat very well or indeed very cheaply too. Nightlife is quite laid back, centered on the dozen or so music bars that open up at about 11.00pm.

This rugged part of the coast line is perfect for swimming, diving and snorkelling; many of the cove type beaches are quiet havens to enjoy with a relaxing summer holiday novel. The hilly interior is challenging walking and biking country, where you will find vineyards, horse riding, monasteries and deserted farmsteads.

The near by port of Rosas has long sandy beaches, sailing and a thriving skydiving centre. Dali's world class museum in Figueras is a must.

About Sid Michelmore

Hard working Somerset UK family.

Why Sid Michelmore chose Costa Brava

My parents have been coming to Cadaques on Holiday since 1960. My first holiday here was in 1970, when we stayed in Salvador Dali's Sister's house. The sea was full of colourful fish and the village was full of artists and alternative folk. Several sardine fishing boats would set off each night with their big lamps to try and catch a large haul of the special Cadaques sardines. Most of the roads were dirt roads, patrolled by Franco's machinegun armed Guarda Civil...... on feeble mopeds.

What makes this apartment unique

The view and traditional Catalan design of the apartment, located on a little street with Catalan neighbours. Wonderful nearby grocery shop run by Merce and Pinto. Excellent restaurants and bars - prepare to diet post holiday!! Laid back night-life, music bars and street entertainers.

Appartement très confortable et vue exceptionnelle

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons beaucoup apprécié notre séjour à Cadaques avec nos deux enfants (7 et 3 ans). Les petits déjeuners sur le balcon avec cette vue exceptionnelle seront inoubliables. La vue est la même depuis les deux chambres qui sont très confortables.

L'appartement est très bien équipé et situé à 5 minutes à pieds (ruelle piétonne en majorité) du centre et de la plage.

Fantastic view, local feel

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay in Cadaques and were so pleased we stayed in this apartment. Really homey, well equipped with everything we needed to enjoy cooking our own versions of local specialities. Amazing views from living room, both bedrooms(slept with the doors open some nights), fabulous balcony to watch the sun rise, eat breakfast, have a siesta, enjoy dinner and a glass of wine - heaven. Lovely walk to town. Thanks for sharing your Spanish home with us! Highly recommended.
