Find your perfect holiday rental in family-friendly Costa del Maresme

Holiday in Costa del Maresme - Barcelona's tranquil north coast

Bungalows, cottages, country houses and villas in Costa del Maresme

A lesser known resort than the Costa Brava, (although some consider it to be part of the Costa Brava) Costa del Maresme's golden sands stretch 30 miles northeast, beginning at Barcelona and ending at Blanes. Situated between the provinces of Girona and Tarragona, the coast of Barcelona Province is certainly not to be overlooked and makes for the perfect base for a sunny Spanish escape. Discover family-friendly beaches, a vibrant cosmopolitan atmosphere and a beautiful unspoiled landscape scattered with quaint fishing villages. Costa del Maresme is within easy reach by train or car from Barcelona, making it the ideal place to stop off for some family fun by the coast.

From 11th century St. Florentina's Castle where scenes of Game of Thrones were filmed, to the fiestas of the capital Calella and the rich Roman history and marina of Mataro, there are plenty of reasons to choose the Costa del Maresme. Our choice of holiday rentals put you at the heart of it all; whether you want to be right by the beach, in the centre of town, or tucked away in the picturesque countryside, Costa del Maresme has something for everyone.

A beginner's guide to renting a villa or apartment in Costa del Maresme

Located in the province of Barcelona, the Maresme coast combines the best of both worlds, boasting the vibrant metropolitan atmosphere of Barcelona city with the relaxed coastal feel that beach life brings. With its 500km of fine sand, discover the tranquil waters of Baham Brisa and Blue Flag Center beach in Malgrat de Mar, as well as Callela's main beach of the same name and Mataro's palm-lined Portixol, to name just a few. This northern coastal region is particularly popular with families looking for a low-key holiday and locals who want to escape the city for some down time away from the main crowds.

The capital Calella was one of the first family-friendly resorts in Catalonia, popular year-round, known for its festivals, nightlife, nature routes and bustling street markets. For a taste of the region's culture, head to Canet de Mar, just over a 10 minute drive from Calella, with its stunning 11th century fairytale-like Castle of St. Florentina, where scenes from Game of Thrones were filmed. Surrounded by forestry, it stands on Pedracastell hill, providing incredible views of the surrounding region. Or visit Mataro with its beautiful port and ruins of an ancient Roman bath house and town square. Palafolls' castle boasts amazing views of the countryside and Blanes. After a morning of sightseeing, the kids will appreciate a stop off at Marineland Catalunya with its wildlife shows, attractions and slides.

An eight minute drive from Calella, Sant Pol de Mar is home to some beautiful beaches, with the main beach located right by the local train platform. A contrast to Barcelona's lively Barceloneta beach, it has all the charms of authentic Spanish seaside life. Refresh at one of the local chiringuitos (cafes) after taking a dip in the calm waters of the Med.
