El Puerto is a resort on the extreme north of the Costa Brava coast, close to the border with France. This pretty Spanish town was once a fishing village and still boasts more of a local feel than most of the other Costa Brava resorts. To make the most of this atmosphere, a holiday apartment in El Puerto from 9flats allows you to stay among the local population, rather than with other tourists in a resort hotel. This means that you can get to know El Puerto from a local’s point of view. Indeed, a holiday apartment in El Puerto is much like couchsurfing in El Puerto but gives you much more comfort and privacy. Perhaps your hosts at your holiday accommodation in El Puerto will even share some local secrets to help you make the most of your stay.
Exploring from your holiday apartment in El Puerto
The resort of El Puerto was originally two settlements. A little inland, the town of Llanca has existed since the 10th century, built away from the coast as a defence against pirates. Due to modern development though, the harbour of Llanca has since joined up with Llanca town to give us the resort of El Puerto we see today. Down at the port you will find the modern boulevard of Passeig Marítim, which stretches along to the beach of Platja del Port. Carrer Castellar, meanwhile, is the town’s major centre for shops and restaurants. The quiet town centre is arranged around the Plaza Mayor, with its huge plane tree, planted in 1870 to commemorate the town’s freedom from the neighbouring French.
Choosing holiday accommodation in El Puerto for your stay
A holiday apartment in Llanca will be set a little back from the coast but still only a mile or so inland. Here you can enjoy a quiet atmosphere and relax in the 14th century main square of Plaza Major. Remember to visit the 11th century chapel of Terrer and the watercolour museum. A holiday apartment in El Puerto in the harbour part of the resort meanwhile, is a great place to enjoy the beach and the bustle of the port. There is a great range of beaches in the area, from long, sandy stretches to small hidden coves.
Leaving El Puerto
The Catalan capital is only a few hours to the south, so a holiday apartment in Barcelona is a great place to extend your stay in the area while experiencing a completely different side of Catalonia. Here you will find a vibrant cultural capital and the unusual architecture of Gaudi. Visit his astonishing Sagrada Familia, walk Las Ramblas down to the harbour and perhaps even take in a football match at the Camp Nou. Alternatively, travel north and cross the border into France. Along the coast, a holiday apartment in Marseille will let you experience the heady mix of French Provencal and North African culture in this exciting port city. At 9flats, we have authentic, locally owned accommodation all over the world, so book now for a better holiday experience.
