The best holiday rentals in Cadaqués for a getaway

Where to park the car in Cadaqués

Over the last few years, Cadaqués has become quite a charm for tourism, which has caused parking near the center to be a high-risk sport. In addition, Cadaqués is located in a geographically difficult place to access due to the multiple curves after Roses.

Private parking at the entrance is one of the easiest options. If this is full, another option is the free car park near the Ermita de Sant Baldiri: this is located on the outskirts of the town, and to get to the center you will have to go through a good descent and uphill. However, if you arrive later than 12, forget about parking quickly and comfortably in Cadaqués.

However, if you are convinced that you do not want to reach Cadaqués by car in any way, it is not the end! You can reach Cadaqués by catamaran from Roses. These are boats that leave during the day and make three-hour routes visiting the surroundings of the two towns. After the journey,you have an hour and a half to explore Cadaqués. The price is around 25 euros per person.

Cadaqués: a historical place

The entire history of Cadaqués will never be fully known due to the constant harassment the town suffered from the pirates who arrived there. In 1444 the population was practically burned and razed by the Muslims established in the Iberian Peninsula. The pirate Blondebeard is also known to have been part of these raids for two centuries. Based on these facts, the population began the construction of a wall to protect the town.

Over time, when security broke out in the Mediterranean Sea , the economy of Cadaqués focused on fishing and agriculture. In the 19th century, the salting industry, a method of preserving food with salt, rose in strength and made a large part of the population rich. Since the seventies the economy based on tourism has gained strength: rural houses, tourist accommodation, hotels, bars and restaurants, and interesting museums. Fishing and agriculture were set aside to focus on serving the new visitors arriving in Cadaqués.

At the beginning of the 20th century, nationally and internationally known artists began to arrive in Cadaqués: Salvador Dalí, Joan Miró, Pablo Picasso, Matisse, Man Ray or MarcelDuchamp. In addition, authors such as Josep Pla, Santiago Rossiñol or Frederico Garcia Lorca also visited it for a few days.

Really, thanks to the indigenous population, the name of Cadaqués is known throughout the territory. However, Cadaqués is also what it is thanks to the hundreds of thousands of visitors who come to it every year, respect it, care for it and admire it.

What can you do in Cadaqués through our holiday rentals?

Stroll through the old town

The old quarter of Cadaqués predominates in white, narrow streets and the typical bougainvilleas that climb the facades. All that remains of the old wall is the watchtower, which today houses the town hall, and the Portal, the entrance arch located at the end of Carrer des Call, on the promenade.

Visit the Church of Santa Maria

Close to Carrer des Call itself, we find the Church of Santa Maria. With a beautiful Gothic style, the church is located in an idyllic spot in the city: one of the best viewpoints in Cadaqués. The religious building began to be built in the 13th century, but it was not finished until the 16th because of the constant attacks by pirates.

The Church of Santa Maria consists of a single nave with side chapels. The whole church itself is white, a singularity in Cadaqués. However, it is not open to the public every day, but can only be entered on specific days of the calendar.

Take a walk along the Passeig Marítim

The entire promenade is packed with viewpoints and different fantastic angles of Cadaqués. The best known in the networks is the "window", which fits perfectly withthe Church of Santa Maria and the surrounding houses, the most recognized in the population.

On the same promenade we find the statue dedicated to Salvador Dalí, one of its most recognized inhabitants in history. It is located on Platja Gran de Cadaqués, right in the center of the town.

Make the way to the Cap de Creus Lighthouse

During your vacation, moving your body a little is essential. There is a circular route of considerable difficulty of 15 kilometers, which leaves from Passeig de Cadaqués. It is a route from Cadaqués to the natural parck of Cap de Creus passing through Port Lligat, the Salvador Dalí Museum, the Cap de Creus Lighthouse, among other unique places.

Visit the House-Museum of Salvador Dalí in Portlligat

In Portlligat we find a few houses, and one of them is a fisherman's house that Dalí bought to live there with Gala, his wife, and where he created much of his work. Today it has become an essential museum for your stay in Cadaqués. Declared an Asset of Cultural Interest since 1997, today we visit what was his house: the dining room, the library, the Gala dressing room, Dalí's workshop, also the large garden that surrounds the house itself.

Swim in one of its most incredible coves

Finally, you cannot leave Cadaqués without taking a dip in one of its most impressive coves. In total, we find 26 beaches and 11 coves: some with sun all day, others with lots of stones and even some surrounded by vegetation without any urban element on the shore. Some of the most impressive are Cala Guillola, Sa Sabolla or Cala Jugadora.

Comfortable house with sea views

Spacious, comfortable house, with everything you need and with magnificent views of the sea and the entire Bay of Roses. Nice fireplace that worked well. We couldn't use the pool, because the weather was cold... beautiful garden with numerous plants in which we could hide the Easter eggs... Dream family stay! To repeat!

Very spacious house in front of the sea with incredible views of the sunset

Large and comfortable house, with everything you need for your stay. It is in a very quiet place in Roses. It takes some time to warm up the house if you come in winter, but otherwise everything is very good and has very cozy spaces.

Cadaqués

Cadaqués is much more than a village to bathe on the beach. The beaches of Cadaqués are very rocky, but near the worldwide known picturesque village we find the bay of Portlligat with the island that lies ahead and of which Salvador Dalí was its best known inhabitant. There you will discover the Dali Museum house, where he lived, surrounded by forests and vegetation, a good starting point if you want to access some beautiful beaches around like Cala Sabolla (before the lighthouse Cala Nans). It is not difficult to access and is ideal for rest and relaxation. Here you can find one of the bests “chiringuitos” of Costa Brava.
