A fantastic area, also, to get to know the capital of Alt Empordà.

What can I do in Cistella and its holiday cottage?

In the first foothills of the Sierra de les Salines and just over fifteen kilometers from Figueres, the capital of Alt Empordà, we find Cistella. A small town that forms part of the Salines-Bassegoda and Garriga d'Empordà consortium, an area of special scenic interest ideal for walking or mountain biking.

What to do during your stay at a tourist accommodation in Cistella

Get to know its architectural heritage

If you stay in a holiday cottage in Cistella or Vilarig, a small town that is part of the town, you have a few unmissable things: First, visit the sanctuary of Nostra Senyora de Vida, a religious building rebuilt in the 17th century on top of a hill If you go there, don't forget your camera: you'll have spectacular views of the Empordà plain. Also of interest is the church of Santa Maria, which, although it was rebuilt in the 18th century, retains a Romanesque facade, or the town of Vilarig, where you can visit the castle of Vilarig and the church. The entire center preserves the architectural structures of the XV-XVIII centuries.

Stroll through the Salines-Bassegoda

Put on some good boots, because you're going to need them. Many routes pass through Cistella for walking or mountain biking, a very good way to discover the unique spaces of Les Salines-Bassegoda, a consortium that includes several municipalities in the Empordà and aims to preserve and revalue the landscape heritage , cultural and environmental of the space. In addition, in the same space we find the Garriga d'Empordà, a place full of dry stone constructions that is worth knowing.

Visit Figueres, the capital of Alt Empordà

You can also take advantage of the break in Cistella, to discover the Empordà plain or get to know the city of Figueres. If you choose to visit the capital of Alt Empordà, you can't miss the Dalí Theatre-Museum, the Toy Museum and Sant Ferran Castle.

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!

F. JavierGallaret del Pla - With friends

Three fantastic days at Gallaret del Pla.

El Gallaret del Pla was the most guessed choice possible, we had spaces to have a good time all together, and also corners to get lost. The house is fully equipped, there is nothing missing, all the elements are of high quality, as well as the kitchen utensils (including salt, oil, spices), everything to do what you want or what you know. The general decoration of the house is excellent, living rooms, rooms, gardens... And everything governed by Dolors, a kind person, and attentive to everything you might need for your stay. I hope to be able to enjoy it again 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.

DirkGallaret del Pla - With the family

One of the best houses we've ever visited!!

Still 2 small comments: too few sun loungers if you are 11. Too bad there is no direct passage from the square to the pool. But the house is beautiful and meets just about everything with a downright beautiful kitchen.
