Llafranc is a charming resort set in the province of Girona, on the Costa Brava in Catalonia. The area is set in an attractive pine-clad landscape, with an attractive and traditionally Spanish town, it has managed to side step any major development.
Llafranc is perfect for families and couples looking for a laid-back, yet enjoyable resort, close to great beaches and the attractions of the Girona and the Costa Brava. An excellent base to explore the rest of the Costa Brava and historical Girona province, and is situated 53 kilometres from Girona Airport.
About town Llafranc is a bustling town, which stays busy all year round. It is bustling in a traditionally Spanish way; don’t expect Brit pubs and kebabs. Llafranc has a great selection of bars and restaurants, delicious seafood is the dominating dish, and the local ‘catch of the day’ is always a good choice.
There are good facilities and amenities, with a selection of bars and restaurants, shops, medical centre, etc. The pretty promenade makes for a delightful evening stroll; you can even take the headland path, which takes you round to the next town, Calella Palafrugell, where there are some excellent restaurants.
There is a lighthouse at the headland Cap Sant Sebastia, where you can enjoy wonderful views to Llafranc and the bay, Calella de Palafrugell, Forcats Point, Cap Roig, Cap de Planes and the gleaming Mediterranean.
Beaches All along this coastline the beaches are beautiful sparkling bays, set at the foot of divine pine clad hillsides, dotted with private homes, or set around small villages.
Places to visit It is recommended to visit the nearby towns and beaches of Calella de Palafrugell and Tamariu, Aigua Blava and Sa Tuna. A little further along the coast is the busy tourist resort of L’Estartit, if you feel like seeing the opposite to Llafranc!
The historical city of Girona is 56 kilometres to drive and is a gem in the heritage of Catalonia. Steeped in historical and cultural ambience.
Climate Llafranc enjoys hot summers, which are cooled by gentle sea breezes, with the rest of the year, although not as warm as the more southerly ‘Costas', offers generally pleasant and mild conditions.
A lovely place with nice beaches and not too many tourists. This was our third visit to Llafranc, and we'll be back!
Costa Brava reviews
We love the small beaches in this area, and Llafranc is also situated close to other nice places, such as Calella de Palafrugell, Begur, Tamariu and Pals. We also love the city of Girona which is situated just and hour's drive away.
