An ideal village for cultural tourism, lovers of hiking and wine tourism.

What can I do in Vilajuïga and its holiday cottages?

Megalithic constructions, a medieval castle and a brutal wine tourism offer. This is what you will find in Vilajuïga, a small town located in the interior of Alt Empordà, near Peralada and Castelló d'Empúries. A town, moreover, located in a unique natural environment: in the middle of the Aiguamolls de l'Empordà and Cap de Creus natural parks.

The history of Vilajuïga and its surroundings

Although there is evidence of an Iberian and Roman presence, Vilajuïga is mentioned for the first time in several documents from the 10th century. It is also known that it belonged to the County of Empúries and was owned by the monastery of Sant Pere de Rodes. Throughout the 18th and 19th centuries the population increased considerably due to the revival of the Catalan countryside. It shows some of the houses and farmhouses that we find scattered around the municipality, such as the Mas de Montperdut or the Mas d'en Satlle. Oil and wine were mainly harvested in its fields, which were exported to Switzerland and Germany. Vilajuïga, in addition, has been and is known historically for having unique mineral waters, which spring from the Verdera mountain.

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

Visit the megalithic buildings and the church of Sant Feliu

If what you like is cultural tourism and history, you cannot miss the Megalithic Route, an itinerary through the megalithic complex of Coma d'Infern - which dates between the 4th and 2nd millennium BC - where we find several dolmens, such as the Carena, the Talaia or the Vinya del Rei, among others. Another must-see is the Romanesque church of Sant Feliu de Vilajuïga, which was converted into a neoclassical temple during the 18th and 19th centuries.

Walk to the castle of Quermançó

If you want to continue visiting historical monuments, it is highly recommended to approach the ruins of the medieval castle of Quermançó, located on top of a hill. Don't forget your camera, because the views are spectacular. It is a castle that was built in the 10th century and subsequently renovated and expanded. Although it had been abandoned for centuries, during the Spanish Civil War it was a point of republican resistance.

Wine tourism in Vilajuïga and the Wine Route

One of the most interesting routes in Vilajuïga, especially for wine lovers, is the Wine Route. A tour of vineyards and wineries such as Celler Espelt, Celler Gelamà and, finally, Celler Cooperatiu Empordàlia, where you can also buy Oli de Pau.

Jose AntonioLa Balma - With the family

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.

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.

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.

And the town, Garriguella, has everything, fishmongers, butchers, restaurants and don't miss the farm shop, with oil, wine and lots of products from the area.
