Roses, Barcelona and the Costa Brava

12 Days £899 per person


Costa Brava, or wild coast, is perhaps the prettiest of all the Costas with its rugged cliffs, secluded coves, fishing villages, beautiful bays and stunning beaches. Old towns with cobbled lanes, plazas and tapas bars offer traditional Spain and the trendy capital, Barcelona, with its Gaudi architecture, fashionable shops, and cobbled Gothic quarter has an international reputation. Our base is the picturesque town of Roses, set in a natural harbour.


This hotel is perfectly located on the beachfront only 300 metres from the centre of Roses. It is decorated in a traditional Mediterranean style which extends to the bedrooms, all of which have airdryer television and air-conditioning. There is also an outdoor swimming pool and the maritime themed restaurant and lovely outdoor terrace are perfect for peoplewatching along the promenade.


THURSDAY This morning we travel to Hull to join the overnight ferry to Rotterdam. Buffet dinner and breakfast is included on board.
FRIDAY After breakfast on board we disembark and continue to our overnight hotel in Dijon.
SATURDAY Today we continue to our destination in Roses where we will be greeted with a welcoming drink and there will be time to settle in before dinner. During our stay the hotel Coral Platja will offer complimentary unlimited wine, beer, soft drinks and tea and coffee between 20.00 and 22.00 each evening.
SUNDAY Today is a day at leisure. Why not join our optional tour of the town by land train or take an easy walk in La Salud area to enjoy the beautiful lake and mountain scenery.

Whilst in resort we have included the following wonderful excursions:
• A full day to Blanes and the Jardin Botanic de Marimurtra where more than 5000 rare species of plants from around the world can be found. We will drive along the stunning coast road as it winds its way along the mountains edge. The views are glorious as we make our way to Sant Feliu de Guixols, one of the prettiest locations on the Coast Brava.
• A boat trip to the picturesque fisherman’s village of Cadaqués. This whitewashed village is a maze of pretty narrow streets that tumble down to the water. The stylish art galleries mingle effortlessly with the souvenir shops, cafés and seafood restaurants. The village and surrounding area have a magic feel which is probably what attracted Salvador Dali and his family to spend their family holidays here.
• A full day excursion to Barcelona where a local guide will show us the city. Barcelona is a unique combination of seaside resort, regional capital, shopping centre and cultural hub and is probably most famous for the architectural works of Gaudi, especially his magnificent, as yet unfinished cathedral.

• A free day in resort to relax or explore.

• A morning visit to Figures with its bustling market and museum dedicated to the town’s most famous son, Salvador Dali and Besalu, a wonderful unspoilt medieval stone village with a 12th century bridge.
