Leo Trippi's private villas for rent in Girona area for your luxury holiday

Luxury in Girona area: Inspiration for Salvador Dali

Located in the north-east of the region of Catalonia, in northern Spain, the Girona area is celebrated for its terrific beaches that are part of the Costa Brava in internationally renowned resorts such as Tossa de Mar, Cadaqués and Port lligat. The coastal landscapes alternate with the nature reserves of Aigüamolls de L'Empordà, Cap de Creus and the La Garrotxa volcanic area. This province is also renowned for being the home of three museums of the work of the surrealist Salvador Dalí. You can also visit Roman churches and monasteries of which there are hundreds. The historic and architectural treasures of the region's capital, Girona, are also well worth a visit. The ancient city of Girona has many contrasts, from its Byzantine old quarter to vibrant, contemporary city culture. With medieval baths and one of the best-preserved medieval Jewish quarters in Spain, Girona boasts astonishing architecture for a city that can be explored on foot. Highlights of the local gastronomy include the produce from the fertile farmlands in the Empordá region and seafood from towns such as Palamós. Leo Trippi offers various luxury villas for rent in the area.

Once the territory that watched over the rough mountain passes through the eastern Pyrenees, the Province of Girona, today enjoys a splendour largely stemming from tourism. The countryside is rich with sunflower fields and densely wooded areas. Girona makes a first-class stop as part of a tour of Catalonia, as an escape from the noise and speed of Barcelona or as a long weekend getaway in a private villa in Spain. Top towns to visit includes Lloret de Mar famous for its beaches, water activities and gardens; Figueres for its museums and historic sites; Olot for its wildlife, tours and nature and Cadaques for its museums, historic and religious sites. Costa Brava, Catalonia's famous rugged coast is an interesting mixture of rocky cliffs and picture-perfect sandy beaches. Its inland stone villages and towns, many of which feature well-preserved medieval structures and extremely narrow cobblestone streets, are also a huge attraction. The Girona area has rich and varied vegetation with an abundance of beech and oak trees. The fauna includes species such as wild boar and wildcat, the short-toed eagle, woodpeckers and nuthatch as well as vipers and other reptiles.
