About this listing
Our beach apartment is right in the heart of Platja D'Aro and just a 5min walk from the 2 mile long beach.
The apartment itself has just been redecorated and has brand new fittings. There are two double bedrooms, one with a double bed and the other with two singles that can be put together or kept separate for children. The living room, in which there is a sofa and flat screen TV, opens on to a balcony which overlooks the main street. The kitchen is quite small but has everything you need including a dishwasher and washing machine. The bathroom has a large, walk-in rainfall shower.
There are several good restaurants and cafes nearby. The town is quite lively, especially during the summer months.
There is public transit to all villages nearby and to Girona, which is well worth a visit. If you want to go further afield, like to Cadaquez or Roses, it might be worth hiring a car just for convenience. There is car parking in the town.
The top attraction in Platja D'Aro is obviously the beach. It's very big and the water is beautifully clear. The town itself is great for shopping, with many clothes shops on the high street.
Platja D'Aro is a great beach destination for families or couples wanting a sun and sea fix. Girona is only a 15 min drive away so long weekend visits are doable from most European airports.
