In the municipality of Saus, Camallera and Llampaies, located in the Alt Empordà and very close to Empúries, you can find very authentic holiday cottages and ideal tourist accommodation to get to know this curious town made up of three towns made up, mainly, of typically Catalan farmhouses. A municipality close to Baix Empordà and Gironès that will allow you to relax, do cultural tourism or visit some essentials such as the ruins of Empúries or the beaches of the Costa Brava.

What can I do in Saus, Camallera and Llampaies and their holiday cottages?

Three towns in one. This is what you will find if you go to Saus, Camallera and Llampaies, a municipality in the Alt Empordà region next to the Baix Empordà and the Gironès. Saus was, in the past, the most important nucleus of the neighborhood. Currently, however, the capital of the term is Camallera. And what will you find in this peculiar municipality? Romanesque churches, cobbled streets with a medieval feel, Iberian silos and, on a gastronomic level, very good sausages.

The history of Saus, Camallera and Llampaies

Although remains of a settlement from the second Iron Age, an Ibero-Roman town and ceramics from the 2nd and 1st centuries BC have been found, it is not until the 13th century that we again have signs of Camallera which, together with Saus, belonged to the county of Empúries. Llampaies, on the other hand, was from the county of Girona. Both Camallera and Llampaies were born as a grouping of several scattered farmhouses. The three towns decided to unite in a single municipality less than two hundred years ago.

Probably, however, one of the most curious historical facts is that in the seventies of the last century, in Saus, two Iberian silos were found there. In subsequent excavations, in addition, remains of pottery dating from the 5th-4th centuries to the 1st century BC were discovered. But that's not all: Several historians believe that the Via Augusta connecting Tarraco with Rome passed through Saus. What is certain is the existence of a Roman road that linked Empúries with Girona and a Roman Villa, verified thanks to the discovery of several impluviums .

What to do during your stay at a tourist accommodation in Saus, Camallera and Llampaies?

Visit various places of interest in Camallera and Llampaies

In Camallera we find a series of must-sees: Let's start with the church of Sant Bartomeu, which already existed in the 13th century, although only the semicircular apse and the current church remain standing from the Romanesque period, which you can see, it is the product of a reform completed in 1951. Second point: The hermitage of Sant Sebastià, an eminently popular construction that was built in the second half of the 16th century. If you prefer to discover what an authentic Empordà town is like, if you walk through Llampaies you can see some interesting farmhouses, such as the neighborhood of Puig, from the 17th-13th centuries and the neighborhood of Les Masos, with houses from the 19th century.

Get lost in the cobbled paths of Saus

Saus maintains an ancient and medieval air thanks to the old stone facades of most of the houses and the paving of the streets, carried out, yes, between 1982 and 1984 at the initiative of the residents. If you choose to discover this charming town, you can't miss the Romanesque church of Santa Eugènia de Saus, declared a cultural asset of national interest.

JudithHostal Vilafreser - With friends

A very relaxed weekend with friends

The house is very comfortable and we really liked it. We were 10 friends with two small children and we were able to enjoy the garden and the pool all day. As a suggestion, I would put something for mosquitos and flies on the windows and especially the dining room window as there were a lot of bugs and a very cute little bird that kept sneaking into the house.

SilviaEl Paller de Can Fort - With the family

Everything good, except the mattresses.

PROS: The house is beautiful. Very accessible for wheelchairs or elderly people with difficult mobility. Fully equipped bathroom and kitchen. Television NO Smart TV ideal for watching TV and enjoying the company and space. CON: The 2 beds in the secondary room were horrible. The mattresses sink, the springs stick in, the entire bed moves with the slightest movement and all the pillows in the house are practically non-existent.

Naturaki respond: Thank you very much, Silvia, for your opinion and evaluation. We are glad to know that you liked the house. We take note of your suggestions to evaluate them. Thanks for the visit.

The environment and the exceptional house

The house is super well equipped, it had everything you need to spend a few days with the family and in a privileged environment. The garden and terraces are great whether it's hot or rainy, we had both. And my dogs had a great time in the garden. For us, a 10. The management is also impeccable, easy and efficient.

JosepMas Llorenç - With the family

The house is very nice and very clean

1. I think the soap, garbage bags and kitchen towels were a bit scarce for the 15 of us. Also note that the latte cups were very small. What's more, everything is very good. 2. A handrail would be missing on the 1st floor descent stairs it's a bit dangerous as it is. Thank you so much.

Naturaki respond: Thank you very much, Josep, for your opinion and rating. We take note of your suggestions to evaluate them. Thanks for the visit.
