In the small village of Vilamalla, located on the Empordà plain and very close to Figueres, you can find very authentic holiday cottages and tourist accommodation ideal for enjoying the agricultural landscape of Alt Empordà. A fantastic town for cycling, walking and, above all, to enjoy a relaxed and peaceful stay. Also very close to Figueres, the Dalí Theatre-Museum and Sant Ferran Castle, among others.

What can I do in Vilamalla and its holiday cottages?

Do you like cycle tourism and want to know the agricultural reality of Empordà? Vilamalla awaits you. A small town located on the plain of the Empordà and very close to Figueres, which combines the agricultural landscape of the Alt Empordà with industrial activity. The ideal villa for a quiet and rural getaway.

The history of Vilamalla and its surroundings

There is no record of Vilamalla until the High Middle Ages, specifically the year 974, when it is mentioned under the name of Villa Dalmalia. At that time, it was the property of the monastery of Sant Pere de Rodes and was part of the county of Empúries. It was always a small nucleus and, in fact, it did not reach a hundred inhabitants until the 18th century. From the 90s of the 20th century, however, the number of inhabitants increased considerably, reaching, today, almost 1200.

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

Enjoy its architectural heritage

In Vilamalla you will find, above all, two essentials: the Romanesque church of Sant Vicenç, a temple from the 11th century, and the Batllia farmhouse, a 16th and 17th century farmhouse that preserves the remains of a square tower from the centuries XIII and XIV. It is supposed to have been the office and residence of the notary of Siurana. It is also worth visiting the old village washer, which has been rehabilitated.

Take a walk or cycle around the area

If what you want is to get to know the agricultural landscape of Empordà at first hand, nothing better than walking or cycling through the meadows and fields that surround Vilamalla. You will only need good shoes, a good camera and a desire to walk or cycle!

Enjoy the important tourist offer of Figueres

Figueres, the capital of the Alt Empordà, is located just over 10 minutes from Vilamalla, so you can also take advantage of your stay at a tourist accommodation in the town to visit Sant Ferran Castle, the Dalí Theatre-Museum or the Toy Museum of Catalonia. Or, obviously, to enjoy the gastronomic offer of Figueres.

Stay from September 23 to 29, 2023 - 14 adults

Great stay. Very nice house, functional, very clean and beautiful rooms. Beautiful and very quiet environment. Only thing: the access path, the last 2 kilometers.

F. JavierGallaret del Pla - With friends

Three fantastic days at Gallaret del Pla.

El Gallaret del Pla was the most guessed choice possible, we had spaces to have a good time all together, and also corners to get lost. The house is fully equipped, there is nothing missing, all the elements are of high quality, as well as the kitchen utensils (including salt, oil, spices), everything to do what you want or what you know. The general decoration of the house is excellent, living rooms, rooms, gardens... And everything governed by Dolors, a kind person, and attentive to everything you might need for your stay. I hope to be able to enjoy it again very soon.

ManuelMas Verdaguer - With the family

Our second time at Mas Verdaguer, and we will certainly repeat it again

We already knew the house, but this time we were able to use the outdoor pool and really enjoyed it. It is ideal for our family because there are many of us (22) and it is difficult to find houses with so many double rooms and private bathrooms. The house was very clean and very well equipped, although there was no Italian coffee maker as stated in the description and we had to buy one. There was also an oil dipper missing and the first aid kit was empty. We were quite hot especially upstairs and the fans were not enough for everyone, with these hot summers some additional solution should be looked at in order to sleep more comfortably. We really enjoyed the common spaces, breakfast on the terrace, dinner in the dining room or watching a series together in the living room. In addition, the barbecue area is ideal for being able to cook for so many people and is super well equipped. The house is very close to Figueres which has a lot of services. Bàscara, the village next door, has a pharmacy, supermarket and a very good butcher. For sure we will repeat because we love this house and we spent some very special days there.

Naturaki respond: Thank you, Manuel, for your review. We are glad to know that you are repeaters of Mas Verdaguer and that you intend to repeat. Regarding the Italian coffee maker, it was in a cupboard (this was confirmed by the person responsible for cleaning). First aid kit we are not obliged to have one, that is why it is not full. And we don't use a setter for hygienic reasons. We take note of the air conditioning issue in order to assess it. Thanks for visiting!

Joan Maria Mas Espígol - With the family

Fighting with the passage of time is not easy

The small negative differences compared to our previous stay derive from the difficulty of immediately correcting inevitable but correctable wear and tear. Cheer up Jordi!

Naturaki respond: Thank you very much for leaving us your opinion, Joan Maria. We are glad that you had a good stay at Mas Espígol. Indeed, as you indicated and as I explained to you at the entrance, there were two facade lights that did not work, and that the plumber would try to come and fix during your stay, luckily all the rest of the exterior lighting it worked The plumber couldn't come and fix it right away. They were fixed after your stay. I am sorry that this incident caused you inconvenience and that it could not be resolved as immediately as possible as we would have liked. We hope to see you again on another occasion, Jordi.

IgnacioCan Roc - With the family

Exceptional house for family reunion

Very well equipped house, kitchen with everything necessary for a group of 15 people. Spacious rooms, different spaces for group eating, a shame about the stifling heat of the week and the mosquitoes did not allow us to use the gazebo next to the barbecue. super-kept garden and pool. Jaume (Gardener) and the super friendly pool maintainer gave us a lot of advice for activities in the area, a big hug for them. Justina is very attentive with cleaning and small incidents.
