- Location Description
This luxury villa in Catalonia has an ideal location on the Bay of Port Lligat. It is on the edge of the Cap de Creus Natural Park and is located in a quiet, rural area. The coastline in this area of Costa Brava is rocky with many lovely coves and bays near the house, many of which can only be visited by foot or by boat. The beaches are pebbly but great for swimming and snorkeling. Cadaques is the nearest village and is within walking distance. It has some shops, a small supermarket, restaurants, cafes, etc.
Nearby Attractions: The property is located in a sheltered bay just meters from the beach where kayaks are available to rent. Salvador Dali’s house is a 5 minute walk and is now a fascinating museum and open for visitors most of the year. The proximity to Cadaques and to Dali’s house allows for a truly unique cultural experience. Cadaques is regularly featured in the press. It is a whitewashed village built around a large horseshoe bay, and it has retained much of the original style and architecture that has made it popular with artists, poets, and writers. It is a thriving community and its shops, restaurants and bars are open all year round. Additionally, there are lots of opportunities for talking walks in the Cap De Creus National Park and canoes and boats can be easily hired. Horseback riding is available as is scuba diving. There are also several good vineyards within one hour and tours can be easily arranged. Golf is also available within one hour.
