Our apartment is located within a 2-minute walk to the beach, and a 5-minute walk to the main street, where shops and restaurants are located, while still being quiet and peaceful. It is surrounded by cool and shady pine trees.
Being on the ground floor, it has a big terrace where you can have a meal or relax while the kids can play in our inflatable swimming pool. It has 2 bedrooms with a queen-size bed, and 1 bedroom with 2 beds; 2 bathrooms and a big living-room. It also has 2 parking spaces.
Our apartment is our second-residence, where we spend our summer holidays when we are not travelling, and also some weekends.
What you will love in the neighborhood
Playa de Aro is a beautiful destination for holidays, with an excellent location: only a 1-hour and 15min drive from Barcelona, and a half-an-hour drive from Girona. It lies on the beautiful Costa Brava, with many nice beaches, hiking and cycling paths along the coast, and many sightseeing places close by. You can even take a fast train and be in Paris, France, in 5 hours!
Playa de Aro has recently been officially recognized as a “family holiday destination”, offering a wide range of attractions and amenities for families, including a free Mini Club on the beach, a water park, 2 amusement parks, and a library with children-oriented activities.
Playa de Aro also allocates several music festivals. During the summer, several concerts can be enjoyed for free at the stage located on the beach.
Why we love our house: (3 things)
-We really enjoy being so close to the beach, and being able to just walk there (the beach promenade allows for a nice walk any time of the day, even with the evening breeze). It is very convenient and safe for children too. Our kid enjoys the free Mini Club activities on the beach.
-Having so many shops and facilities in the area make our apartment very convenient: 5-minutes-walk to the supermarket, shops and even the amusement parks. It’s a 2-minute walk to many nice terraces for a waterfront dinner or drinks by the beach any time of the day and night.
-Playa de Aro is a great location to explore the beautiful Costa Brava. We specially like hiking along the coastal footpath and taking a swim in secluded beaches along the way. We also enjoy driving to other coastal towns close by and enjoy the views.
We also enjoy being so close to Barcelona (where we usually live).
