In the small town of Colera, located in the Alt Empordà, between Llançà and Portbou, you can find very authentic holiday cottages and tourist accommodation ideal for enjoying this small town between the Pyrenees and the Mediterranean. A municipality with spectacular beaches, such as Garbet or Carbassó, where you can do a lot of water sports, and fantastic routes for walking or cycling.

What can I do in Colera and its holiday cottages?

In the north of the Costa Brava, between Llançà and Portbou, we find the small town of Colera. A municipality of beaches where we can carry out a lot of water sports, pleasant walking routes and discover its megalithic tombs. It is also one of the northernmost coastal towns in the country, witness to the contact between the Pyrenees and the Mediterranean.

The history of Colera and its environment

The first document in which the town of Colera appears is from 935. The toponym possibly comes from the Latin collis , which means 'hill', 'hill'. The old town began to be built when the pirate danger, which for a long time threatened the Catalan coast, disappeared in the middle of the 18th century. From 1885 to 1934, Colera was part of Portbou.

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

Take routes on foot or by bike

If you stay in a holiday cottage in Colera, you can make several excursions on foot or by bike, such as the one that goes to the Molinars , a castle in ruins that had a water mill from the 17th century, the one in the area of the Rovelada, from where you will have spectacular views. You can also choose to discover the megalithic tombs, dolmens and menhirs in the area or climb Cape Ras , located on the dividing line between Llançà and Colera.

Enjoy its beaches and its architectural heritage

Colera has some spectacular beaches, such as Garbet, Cala Rovellada or Platja del Carbassó, with transparent waters and coarse sand, ideal for snorkeling. If water sports are your thing, Colera's beaches are great for windsurfing, water skiing and scuba diving. And, if what you want is to stroll through the town, you can't miss the Romanesque church of Sant Miquel de Colera, from the 12th-13th centuries, the town's old parish.

BarbaraNiu de l'Albera - With the family

Very nice place, very poor kitchen utensils

The house is very cosy and nice with a lot of bedrooms. We were with 6 people so space enough, but the main room is very small if you are there with more people. The kitchen utensils were very poor; to less normal glasses, just one cutting plate, pans that not works on the cooker, 2 orange presses that didn’t work and so on. A plus is the little shop that you can walk to in 5 minutes to buy the essentials and a nice bar for coffee and tapas. Also the swimming pool and trampoline were a success! And the beautiful views with singing of a lot of birds were amazing. We missed the hanging chair on the pictures.

Naturaki respond: Thank you very much, Barbara, for your review. We are glad to know that you liked the house and the services near the house. We will go over all the utensils and change the pans, thanks for the heads up. For safety reasons, we are changing the hammocks. Thanks for the visit, Lluís.

We went to celebrate my husband's 80th birthday

We've been great. The house has everything to make you feel comfortable, it lacks nothing. And it's very beautiful, we all really liked it, even the youngest asked if they could stay and live. It won't be the last time we come. Until the next one.

Everything perfect, just one drawback

The toilet upstairs must have had a problem with the downspouts and it smelled quite unpleasant. I think it is something that should be repaired urgently. Everything else is perfect!

Naturaki respond: Thank you very much, Julio, for your opinion and assessment. We are glad to hear that the rest of your stay went well! We take note of your suggestions to evaluate them. Thanks for the visit.

Impeccable house for visiting the Alt Empordà

We celebrated a birthday, 10 people and a dog. The house is ideal, with a wonderful exterior, the heating works very well, the fireplace is beautiful, they offer you wood and coal for the barbecue. And the town, Garriguella, has everything, fishmongers, butchers, restaurants and don't miss the farm shop, with oil, wine and lots of products from the area.

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.
