In the small village of Darnius, located in the Alt Empordà, near La Jonquera, you can find very authentic holiday cottages and ideal tourist accommodation to enjoy this small town known for the Boadella marsh. A municipality that has an important natural heritage and that will appeal to lovers of water sports, mountain bike routes and cultural tourism.

What can I do in Darnius and its holiday cottages?

If you like water sports, you must go to Darnius. A small town known for the Boadella reservoir and for an important natural heritage, such as the Arnera, Muga and Ricardell river valleys and the Salines-Bassegoda mountain bike route that passes through the area.

The story of Darnius and its surroundings

Darnius appears mentioned for the first time in 983, under the Latin toponym of Darnicibus, belonging to the county of Besalú. Although in the term we find signs of Neolithic settlements, such as the dolmen of Mas Puig de Cabaneres or the menhir of Pedra Dreta . Taking advantage of the amount of oak groves in the area, an important cork industry developed in Darnius from the 19th century, which lasted well into the 20th century. In 1954, the Boadella marsh was built which, although it was originally supposed to be located in Boadella, technical reasons made it necessary to change its location, which finally happened in Darnius.

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

Enjoy its architectural and cultural heritage

Darnius has a few unmissable places: The parish church of Santa Maria, from the 13th century and the remains of the walls that are preserved near the temple, the hermitage of Sant Esteve del Llop, located about three kilometers away, or the castle of Mont-roig, at the top of the mountain of the same name. You can't miss the dolmen of Mas Puig de Caneres, the Pedra Dreta menhir and the monumental banana tree of Massot.

Practicing water sports in the Boadella swamp

The Boadella reservoir is home to a yacht club and various facilities for practicing sports such as wakeboarding, canoeing or water skiing, but you can also sail there by boat or canoe or simply enjoy the panorama and take good pictures there. If you are a fan of mountain biking, the Salines-Bassegoda route starts in Darnius, specifically in the marsh.

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.

MartaEl Portaló de Cantallops - With the family

Family space that lets you breathe

We repeated! The space allows the family to be together but everyone has a space and you don't feel overwhelmed. The environment is also exceptional. Kids have everything to keep them entertained, both inside and outside. The only improvement I would hope for is to change the curtains which are not black out and too short (especially in the outer room of four and the moon wakes up young and old too early); also change some auxiliary tables and lamps that are too simple (with little investment it would raise the feeling of luxury).

Naturaki respond: Thank you, Marta, for your review and thank you for repeating El Portaló de Cantallops. We love that our guests enjoy and perceive the diversity of spaces to enjoy that the house has. In relation to what you are commenting on, we appreciate your comments, they always help us to improve. Just this summer we plan to change the blackout curtains, so we will take into account your comments about the blackout. As for the lamps, you will have seen that there are different models and each one fulfills a different function... but we appreciate your constructive comments, and will take them into account for future changes and improvements. Thanks again for your honesty, Eliana.
