In the small village of Vilabertran, located in the Alt Empordà and very close to Figueres and Peralada, you can find very authentic holiday cottages and tourist accommodation ideal for enjoying this village on the Empordà plain. An area known, above all, for the architectural ensemble of the Canònica de Santa Maria de Vilabertran and ideal for family and cultural tourism.

What can I do in Vilabertran and its holiday cottages?

If you want to get to know the popular Canònica de Santa Maria de Vilabertran , don't hesitate any longer: Vilabertran lacks people! This small town in the Alt Empordà, located near Figueres and Peralada, is known, above all, for its monastery and for always being the vegetable garden of the capital of the Alt Empordà.

The history of Vilabertran and its surroundings

The history of this small town on the Empordà plain is closely linked to that of the monastery of Santa Maria de Vilabertran. Although the municipality grew around the monastery, before its construction there was already a small settlement with a small church dedicated to the Virgin Mary. The canonry was erected where the church was and was founded by Pere Rigau who, in the 11th century, gathered a community of clergy there and began to build the monastery. The Canon of Santa Maria de Vilabertran was consecrated in 1100 by the Bishop of Girona. As a historical curiosity: in the 13th century, the bond between James II of Aragon and Blanca of Anjou was celebrated there. In Vilabertran, however, you will not find old houses, probably because of the Sant Lluc flood of 1940, the most important of the 20th century.

What to do during your stay at a tourist accommodation in Vilabertran?

Get to know the Canònica of Santa Maria de Vilabertran

Without a doubt, if you are staying in a rural house in this small town in the Empordà plain, you must visit the monastic complex of Santa Maria de Vilabertran , one of the best-preserved examples of medieval canonical architecture built between the 12th and 13th centuries. This architectural ensemble was initially formed by a central cloister that communicates with the monastic outbuildings and the church. The most unique element is the processional cross, the largest piece of Gothic goldsmithing in Catalonia. Later, the canonry was expanded with the funeral chapel of the Rocabertí, the abbey palace and the walled courtyard. All in all, it deserves a good visit. In addition, it currently hosts the Schubertíada concerts.

Stroll by the Abat Rigau fountain and the waterwheels

If you feel like walking, you can't miss the waterwheels of Vilabertran. There are more than twenty of them! Most of them are in the fields and orchards on the outskirts of the town and had, therefore, an exclusively agricultural use. Others, however, are also in the town centre, such as the one in Carrer Josep Reig i Palau and the one in Plaça dels Hortalans. Another way to discover the landscape of the Empordà plain. You can also go as far as the Abat Rigau spring, a few meters from the monastery, where you will find a jet of water and an ideal area for a picnic.

Great weekend in a very nice house and environment

We have enjoyed a great house in a very pleasant environment. The house has everything you need to rest or get tired with all kinds of activities and games that allow you to enjoy any time with family and friends. As well as preparing good meals and barbecue that can be eaten in the outdoor or indoor dining room. Without a doubt, a house to recommend and thank you for the attention given by Mª Teresa, who was the person who received us. Thanks and see you soon.

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.

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.
