In the small town of Pau, located in the Alt Empordà and very close to towns on the Costa Brava such as Roses or Llançà, you can find very authentic holiday cottages and tourist accommodation ideal for enjoying active tourism and the Aiguamolls de l' Emporda From Pau, you can also discover megalithic monuments, practice active tourism and watch birds from the lakes of Vilaüt.

What can I do in Pau and its holiday cottages?

Do you want to discover megalithic monuments, contemplate the Empordà plain from the path of Sant Pere de Rodes and enjoy the Aiguamolls de l'Empordà Natural Park and the Vilaüt ponds? People are missing towards Pau. A small town in Alt Empordà located in the south of the Serra de Rodes, between Vilajuïga and Palau-saverdera.

The story of Pau and his surroundings

Pau's name has been documented since 982, in a precept of the Frankish king Lothar, where the possessions of the monastery of Sant Pere de Rodes are recognized. The toponym, by the way, has nothing to do with the Latin pax (which means peace), but could come from the Latin pagus ('rural district') or even derive from the patronymic Paulus, from palus ('pond ') or from the name of the peacock animal.

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

Get to know the town and its surroundings

If you stay in a holiday cottage in Pau, you have a few unmissables: At the entrance, the Romanesque church of Sant Martí , from the 11th and 13th centuries, as well as the houses of the old town, many from the 17th and 18th centuries, with barns in the upper part and cellars in the lower ones. You also can't miss the White Cross, from the 15th century, a remarkable cross carved in limestone, which, together with the cylindrical pillar that supports it, exceeds three meters in height. It is the only one of the old territory of the monastery of Sant Pere de Rodes that is preserved in its entirety. Near this cross you will also find a dolmen that bears the same name. However, a short distance from the Puig de l'Home you can visit the tomb of the runner in the Margalla hill.

Visit the lakes of Vilaüt

If you like active tourism, don't hesitate for a second: Let yourself be seduced by the beauty of the Aiguamolls de l'Empordà Natural Park and the lakes of Vilaüt. A passage and nesting place for many birds and, therefore, of great ornithological interest. You can't miss the path to Sant Pere Rodes either, from where you'll have spectacular views of the Empordà plain.

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.

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!

JulioL'Auca - With the family

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.
