Villas, apartments and holiday rentals in Blanes

Situated in the province of Girona, stretching all the way up to the French border, Blanes is a resort town of true Catalonian beauty. Known as the gateway to the Costa Brava, discover an unspoiled side to Spain, boasting beautiful botanical gardens, stretches of golden sand and an old quarter with authentic tapas restaurants and atmospheric winding streets. A favourite with Catalans, its pristine beaches and coves, relaxed way of life and picturesque landscape make it the perfect destination for a family holiday. As the first town along the Costa Brava, Blanes has charm and character in abundance, from its whitewashed houses to the traditional fishing boats along the harbour.

Stroll along Passeig de Carles Faust and discover the exotic gardens of Marimurtra, attracting over 300,000 visitors each year who come to see the beautiful display of over 4000 species of plant life. Take a trip to the old town with its Gothic architecture and working fishing port. In the evening, sample the catch of the day with a traditional alfresco dinner. Kids will love Blanes for its family-friendly beaches, festivals and nearby adventure and water parks. For a change of scenery Barcelona is only an hour away by car, with a scenic drive along the coast, or why not make the most of the sparkling Mediterranean with a scuba diving and snorkeling boat excursion for all the family.

Blanes' coastline with its mountain backdrop, is its main attraction, varying from quiet coves to large stretches of sand perfect for enjoying water sports. Climb up San Juan's hill, and you'll come to the family-friendly beach of Sant Francesc, with its gentler sloping sands and snack bars. After a dip in the sea, explore San Juan Castle and watchtower at the top of the hill, once used for pirate sightings. From here, take in glorious views across Blanes and the Mediterranean Sea. Blanes' promenade, Passeig de Cortils i Vieta, stretches across each beach, with cycle lanes, plenty of restaurants, shops and bars; there's even a scattering of rides to keep the kids entertained.
