In the small municipality of Vila-sacra, located in the Alt Empordà and very close to Figueres and the Aiguamolls de l'Empordà, you can find very authentic holiday cottages and ideal tourist accommodation to enjoy this town on the plain Empordanese An agricultural area ideal for family tourism, cycle tourism and walks, also known for its fair dedicated to calçots.

What can I do in Vila-sacra and its holiday cottages?

Do you like cycling and want to go on a quiet, rural getaway? In the middle of the Empordà plain, just over ten minutes from Figueres, you will find Vila-sacra, a small town where you can get to know the typical Empordà agricultural landscape and take a few routes and walks on foot or by bike.

The history of Vila-sacra and its surroundings

The history of this small town in Empordà is closely linked to that of the monastery of Sant Pere de Rodes. In fact, at the end of the 18th century, following the disasters caused by the Rosselló War, the monks of the monastery had to move to the castle of Vila-sacra, of which only the tower remains today. They stayed there for a few years, until 1805, when King Charles IV granted them the transfer to Figueres. As a curiosity: Etymologically, it seems that the name Vila-sacra comes from the word villa and from Saccari, a personal name, and appears documented for the first time in the 10th century.

What to do during your stay at a tourist accommodation in Vila-sacra?

Visit its architectural heritage

If you stay in a rural house in Vila-sacra, you have two unmissable places to visit: the parish church of Sant Esteve , a fortified Romanesque building built in the 13th century, but extended during the Baroque, and the castle or palace of the Abat, which nowadays houses the town's Town Hall. It is, however, an old Benedictine monastery that belonged to Sant Pere de Rodes . Of the ancient remains, the circular tower is preserved, about fourteen meters high.

Take routes on foot or by bike

If you want to know what a real rural village of the Empordà plain is like, take your bike or put on some good walking shoes and discover the fields around Vila-sacra, dedicated to dry farming. Another option is to get closer to the banks of the Manol River. In addition, just over 10 kilometers away, half an hour by bike, you have the Aiguamolls de l'Empordà and the beaches of Empuriabrava.

Enjoy the Onion and Calçot Fair

If you visit Vila-sacra during the month of March, we recommend that you stop by the Onion and Calçot Fair, ideal for lovers of calçots and romesco sauce. You will find activities, craft and food stalls and, of course, calçots tasting throughout the day.

MaiteMas Garriguella del Camp - With the family

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.

Spectacular house with privacy and close to the town.

The house offers the possibility of doing everything, playing soccer, ping-pong, basketball, etc. The pool is great. The barbecue and the enclosure are spectacular. Everything is very clean and no detail is missing. The comfort of the house, its rooms and its super comfortable bathrooms. A 10.

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.

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.
