A municipality of just over 400 inhabitants fantastic for lovers of hiking, cultural tourism and mountain bike routes.

The history of Vilanant and its surroundings

Vilanant appears mentioned, for the first time, in the year 966, under the name of 'Villa Avondant' and forming part of the county of Besalú. Later, in 1290, it became part of the royal battalion of Figueres and during the Roussillon War it was looted by the French army. In the 19th century, phylloxera caused a serious demographic crisis that lasted practically an entire century. In 1996 the old municipal area of Taravaus was incorporated into Vilanant.

Go hiking and mountain biking through the Salines-Bassegoda and the Garriga d'Empordà

Vilanant, being part of the Salines-Bassegoda consortium and part of the Garriga d'Empordà , offers a lot of possibilities, especially if you are fond of hiking, mountain bike routes and active tourism. Routes of various difficulties, unique landscapes and ideal places to walk with the family and discover, for example, dry stone constructions.

Visit the architectural and religious heritage of Vilanant

Vilanant is full of must-sees: From the Romanesque church of Santa Maria de Vilanant, passing through the church of Sant Martí de Taravaus, built in the 13th century, during the late Romanesque period, to the hermitage of Sant Salvador de Coquells, a small 11th century temple located in the middle of a landscape of great beauty. You can also visit the chapel of Sant Jaume dels Verders, an 18th century temple located near the castle of Escales, in the middle of nature. In addition, both Vilanant and Taravaus preserve many buildings and farmhouses from the 17th and 18th centuries that are worth seeing.

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!

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.

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.

DirkGallaret del Pla - With the family

One of the best houses we've ever visited!!

Still 2 small comments: too few sun loungers if you are 11. Too bad there is no direct passage from the square to the pool. But the house is beautiful and meets just about everything with a downright beautiful kitchen.
