What can I do in Boadella i Les Escaules and its holiday cottages?

The history of Boadella i Les Escaules and its surroundings

Boadella was a small group of scattered farmhouses until, between the 10th and 11th centuries, the castle of Boadella was built, which, little by little, became the primitive origin of the urban center of the present town. At the end of the 10th century, in fact, both Boadella i Les Escaules became properties of the monastery of Sant Pere de Rodes. During the 13th and 14th centuries, in the middle of the feudal era, the walls began to be built to protect the population that gathered around the castle. And, a century later, the first stone houses were built in the old town, such as Can Serra, which is still preserved. The population began to increase towards the 17th-18th centuries, thanks to the cultivation of vines and olive trees, so that new houses were built outside the old perimeter of the wall. In 2008, Boadella i Les Escaules was one of the nine founding members of the Association of Micro-towns of Catalonia.

What to do during your stay at a tourist accommodation in Boadella i Les Escaules

Visit the old town and the castles of Boadella i Les Escaules

Both the old town of Boadella d'Empordà and that of Les Escaules are, without any doubt, two unmissables. Most of the houses you will see there have preserved the traditional architecture, the streets are narrow and both centers retain a medieval air worthy of photography. However, you also cannot miss the castle of Les Escaules, which, although it appears documented in 1123, the current remains are from the 14th-15th centuries, and the castle-palace of Boadella , a large Gothic mansion located in front of the main square.

Stroll around Muga

If you want to walk for a while and enjoy nature, the Muga pass through Boadella i Les Escaules offers fascinating corners, such as the Salt de la Caula, one of the most beautiful places in the area, the fountain and the Mas bridge, the mill of les Puces or the cave of les Encantades , from where you will have spectacular views. All without forgetting the Boadella swamp, one of the district's tourist attractions.

AiramMas Espígol - With friends

Peace, tranquility and luxury 500 m from the center of Figueres

A spectacular stay, the house decorated with great taste and everything in perfect condition. Although the weather didn't cooperate and we had hail, the house has enough spaces to be able to enjoy the surroundings in any circumstance. Very spacious spaces, the whole property is flat, you only need to climb stairs to go to sleep, the rest of the day you spend on the ground floor and that helps a lot. Great temperature in all rooms, comfortable kitchen. Ideal to repeat, but next time we will do it in good weather. Jordi 100% dedicated to anything we need, very helpful. Thanks for everything, it's been a pleasure! We hope to find it available in 2025 to see us again.

Spend the New Year with family in a rural house!

It has truly been a great pleasure at the Empordà en Família rural house. Both the host Maite, a six star, and the house contributed greatly to the excellent time we spent there. Highly recommended.

MontseMas Susi - With friends

It's a fantastic house! Very large, very well equipped and with many quality details and good taste.

If you liked the photos, the house will surprise you even more. It is much more beautiful, bright and spacious. All the rooms in the house are very spacious and very well decorated. All furniture is new and in a good condition. There are many details for all tastes and ages. We have stayed there with 4 families with children and, honestly, we had plenty of room. It is spectacular and we found everything we needed. And the whole house was very clean and tidy. We have already started looking for availability to return very soon!

Joan Maria Mas Espígol - With the family

Fighting with the passage of time is not easy

The small negative differences compared to our previous stay derive from the difficulty of immediately correcting inevitable but correctable wear and tear. Cheer up Jordi!

Naturaki respond: Thank you very much for leaving us your opinion, Joan Maria. We are glad that you had a good stay at Mas Espígol. Indeed, as you indicated and as I explained to you at the entrance, there were two facade lights that did not work, and that the plumber would try to come and fix during your stay, luckily all the rest of the exterior lighting it worked The plumber couldn't come and fix it right away. They were fixed after your stay. I am sorry that this incident caused you inconvenience and that it could not be resolved as immediately as possible as we would have liked. We hope to see you again on another occasion, Jordi.

Rest and disconnect. Comfort, to REPEAT.

The house is fully equipped, very comfortable and convenient to enjoy it. In a quiet environment, but integrated into Capmany, so pleasant walks and good local food. Nuria has always been aware that everything was to our liking, solving our doubts and providing valuable information for other occasions. We have spent a few days accompanied by our children (25 and 22 years old) and their partners, and the stay has been comfortable for everyone. We will certainly repeat.

The reality surpasses the images on the web

We had a great stay. The house is very comfortable, has everything you need and, in good weather, is very practical as it has two dining rooms (inside and outside), perfectly equipped. The host, Jordi, is very attentive and is always at the customer's disposal for any query. The equipment for children is unbeatable.
