Costa Dorada Villas

Discover the beautiful Costa Dorada region in Catalonia, Spain for the chance to indulge in 150 miles of spectacular beaches and sparkling blue waters.  Known as the ‘Golden Coast’, the region attracts many people who like to book Costa Dorada villas to its shores year after year. The region has both well-known areas that are extremely popular with tourists, such as the city of Salou, as well as hidden treasures that are just waiting to be discovered.  Pretty promenades, picturesque marinas and lively bars and restaurants make the region a perfect holiday destination, whether you are looking for a relaxing Costa Dorada villa holiday or something a little livelier. 

The most popular destination on the Costa Dorada is the city of Salou, which is also considered to be the area’s capital.  As a popular tourist resort, Salou is very family friendly with many child friendly attractions and enough to do to keep both young and old entertained.  Salou has great rail links to the PortAventura complex – the largest theme park in southern Europe, making a Costa Dorada villa holiday in the area ideal for reaching many points of interest.  As well as the theme park, there is also a water park named the Costa Caribe Water Park which provides a fun-filled day out for people of all ages staying at Costa Dorada villas.  Those who want to relax can enjoy the sun and swimming pools whilst those looking for excitement can indulge in the many rides for both children and adults.

If you are looking for a more relaxing break in Salou you can simply enjoy the pretty scenery by taking leisurely strolls along the beautifully landscaped promenade.  As you walk along the promenade the palm trees that line the walkway sway in the gentle breeze as you pass the Llevant beach.  This beach is the most popular in Salou with sun loungers available to rent, pedalos and children’s play facilities.  Those staying at Costa Dorada villas close by to Salou can also indulge in its many shops that sell a host of items from football shirts to souvenirs.  Throughout the day and night you can dip in and out of the many bars and restaurants at the pretty marina which boast a lively atmosphere.  From the marina you can also take a boat trip to witness the region’s marine life, an interesting day out for many people renting a Costa Dorada villa.

For a culturally enriched holiday take a visit to the fascinating city of Tarragona  which dates all the way back to Roman times when it was known as Tarraco.  The city is lucky enough to hold a number of sites that have been designated as UNESCO World Heritage Sites, mainly Roman ruins.  From your chosen Costa Dorada villa you can explore the ruins of a Roman amphitheatre, a tower and a citadel, amongst others, which give an incredible insight into the past of this attractive Spanish city.  After you have explored many of the Roman attractions you might like to take a look at the Gothic-Romanesque Cathedral of Tarragona which dates back to the 12th or 13th century.

So whether you want to spend your getaway lazing on the golden beaches or exploring the interesting towns, villages and cities of the region, there is something to suit everyone who books a Costa Dorada villa.  Explore the town of Reus, which is considered the birthplace of world-renowned architect Antoni Gaudi, to enjoy its rock climbing opportunities or discover the museums of the region with a visit to the coastal towns of Cambrils or L’Ametlla. Whatever you choose to do during your Costa Dorada villa holiday, the beautiful landscape of golden beaches, rocky coves, bright blue sea and pretty promenades is sure to enchant you and bring you back to the region time and time again.
