What to do during your stay at a tourist accommodation in Arenys d'Empordà

Visit and learn about its architectural heritage

If you're staying in a holiday cottage in Arenys d'Empordà, you can't miss the Romanesque church of Sant Sadurní which, during the 17th and 18th centuries, was integrated into the castle's defenses. The walls of the church, in fact, still preserve remains of the old fortification. In addition, in 1944 the temple was decorated by a group of artists from Emporda. Another must-see is, without a doubt, the medieval castle, currently attached to the church. It is a building essentially from the 16th-17th centuries built on top of the medieval fortified palace which, during the Middle Ages, belonged to the Lords of Palol, also lords of Vilopriu Castle. You also can't miss the modernist tower Casa Francès, from 1877, where the writer José Francés and the dancer Àurea de Sarrà lived and died.

Incredible weekend with friends

The pictures don't do justice, it's even better! We have been very comfortable during the weekend we spent at the house. It's a shame that in February we weren't able to take advantage of the pool, we'll have to do it again in the summer!

Great house and very quiet environment

We spent a weekend three couples with two children and we enjoyed it very much. The house is very spacious and does not lack anything. Everything is in perfect condition and very clean. The garden area is ideal with a barbecue, table, swimming pool and hammocks. And the environment is very quiet. In addition, Laura is very kind and attentive. Without a doubt, we will repeat. Thanks for everything.
