What can I do in Vilafant and its holiday cottages?

The history of Vilafant and its surroundings

Vilafant is mentioned for the first time in the 11th century. However, the economy of Vilafant, based on agriculture and, to a lesser extent, livestock, underwent a major change with the development of the tiling industry. In fact, in 1620 there were fifteen ovens in operation and in the middle of the 18th century there were eleven small factories. It was not, however, until the year 1880 that Rafel Soler's large mill was assembled, which supplied tiles to the works of the Barcelona Universal Exhibition of 1888. The tile industry gave rise to other activities economics linked to construction, such as plasterers or mosaic manufacturers. A past that has left its mark on the collective imagination of the town.

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

Visit the architectural complex of Palol Sabaldòria

One of the must-sees in Vilafant is, without a doubt, the historic architectural complex of Palol Sabaldòria, made up of a pre-Romanesque church, a medieval castle, a farmhouse and Iberian and Roman remains. If you want to continue with the cultural visit, the parish church of Sant Cebrià de Vilafant, from the 13th-14th centuries, with a neoclassical portal or the four towers of popular modernist style from the beginning of the 20th century: the Manol tower is also worth visiting , the tower of Dolfo Soler, the Ginjaume tower and the Soler tower of the mosaics.

Visit the pools in the surroundings

If you prefer to walk a bit, enjoy the surroundings and bathe in some magnificent pools, you can stroll along the banks of the Manol river which, as it passes through Vilafant, forms deep pools, such as Baqué's pool, the pool Blava or the popular pool dels Figuerencs , where the surrealist painter Salvador Dalí used to go. You can't miss the Can Massanet fountain either, where you'll find a hundred-year-old oak declared a monumental tree.

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.

Spend the New Year with family in a rural house!

It has truly been a great pleasure at the Empordà en Família rural house. Both the host Maite, a six star, and the house contributed greatly to the excellent time we spent there. Highly recommended.

MontseMas Susi - With friends

It's a fantastic house! Very large, very well equipped and with many quality details and good taste.

If you liked the photos, the house will surprise you even more. It is much more beautiful, bright and spacious. All the rooms in the house are very spacious and very well decorated. All furniture is new and in a good condition. There are many details for all tastes and ages. We have stayed there with 4 families with children and, honestly, we had plenty of room. It is spectacular and we found everything we needed. And the whole house was very clean and tidy. We have already started looking for availability to return very soon!
