In the small town of Vilamaniscle, located at the foot of the Albera mountain range, very close to Llançà and the beaches of the Costa Brava, you can find very authentic holiday cottages and tourist accommodation ideal for enjoying the Albera area. A fantastic town for hiking and mountain bike routes, cultural tourism and wine tourism, as it is part of the DO Empordà. All very close to the Costa Brava and the Monastery of Sant Pere de Rodes.

What can I do in Vilamaniscle and its holiday cottages?

At the foot of the Albera mountain range, between vineyards and pine forests, we find Vilamaniscle. A small town of just over 200 inhabitants known, above all, for being one of the wine producers in the DO Empordà. A village, therefore, ideal for hiking, mountain bike routes and wine tourism.

The history of Vilamaniscle and its surroundings

Although the existence of megalithic monuments proves a prehistoric human presence, there is no record of the existence of Vilamaniscle until the 11th century, when Pope Benedict VIII mentions the place known as 'Villare de Melandre', which was the possession of monastery of Sant Esteve de Banyoles. Later, in the 16th century, there is evidence of this territory again, which then belonged to the Vilarigs. The population of Vilamaniscle has traditionally been sparse.

What to do during your stay at a tourist accommodation in Vilamaniscle

Visit its megalithic monuments

If you are staying in a holiday cottage in Vilamaniscle, you cannot miss the megalithic monuments of the right stone or menhir of Mas Roqué and the Dofines dolmen. Two constructions that are estimated to date from approximately 3000 BC. However, it is also worth visiting the church of Sant Gil, a small building with a single nave from the 17th and 18th centuries, and the castle of Vilamaniscle, a large fortified castle located in the upper part of the town and which, despite which is not known exactly when it was built, has a baroque shield on the portal.

Hiking or mountain biking routes through the Albera mountain range

The small village of Vilamaniscle is located in the Serra de l'Albera, a natural area full of paths and routes ideal for hiking and mountain biking. You can also get close to the Suro Gros viewpoint, located in a recently rehabilitated area from which you can see the entire Albera and Salines mountain ranges, as well as the Canigó massif. Or, even, choose to do the section of the GR 11 that passes through the center of the town and goes to Port de la Selva.

Do a wine tasting at some of their wineries

Vilamaniscle is a wine producer within the DO Empordà, therefore, nothing better than ending one of the proposed routes with a wine tasting at some of its wineries and, in passing, taking the opportunity to enjoy the local gastronomy.

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.

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.
