Roses

Roses is an essentially Mediterranean town with a notable tourist and seafaring tradition. Located in a unique natural environment in the northern area of the Costa Brava, it is less than 30 km from the French border, 65 km from Girona and 160 km from Barcelona. The Airport at Girona is just 1 hour drive from the resort.

Roses origins date back to the eighth century BC with the arrival of the Greeks. Roses is a modern town, which is culturally active and with proud traditions. The town has prospered since the middle of the 20th century, and boasts excellent shopping, restaurants, bars, beaches, nightlife and sporting facilities.

Leisure & recreation


For walkers or mountain bikers there is the Aiguamolls nature reserve, a wonderful natural parkland and animal sanctuary stretching up from the coast to the Pyrenees Mountains.

The fantastic Water Fun Park of Aqua Brava in Roses is great for families, plus you can try your hand at skydiving, boating, sailing and karting are available. There are also facilities for horse riding nearby; bird watching on the extensive wetlands also attracts quite a few twitchers.

Golf
For the golfer Roses is heaven, with six top class courses within 45 minutes drive, offering a variety of challenges.

Beaches


Roses is near to some the most attractive and least crowded beaches of the Costa Brava. Just down the road, the vast stretch of beach runs all the way to historic Sant Martí de Empuries, which also has its own charming beach.

From here, a maritime walkway with views of the Roman ruins of Empúries runs as far as the fishing town of L’Escala with its own seafront promenade, beaches and tempting seafood restaurants. 



Excursions
Figueres (Dali museum) or Girona can be reached very easily and offer great shopping and cultural experiences.
Barcelona with i's historic sights, fantastic restaurants and world-class museums and art galleries, is a popular day out.
The beautiful antique town of La Bisbal, is famous for its pottery and ceramics.

Cap de Creus is a nearby area where the Pyrenees run down to the sea, accessible by way of the beautiful coastal artists village of Cadaqués made famous by Salvador Dalí and Picasso.

Eating out
El Bulli, currently the world’s most famous restaurant is nearby, but usually requires booking several months in advance. There are many good restaurants within 10 to 25 minutes drive.

Cuisine
The gastronomy of Catalonia is rich and varied. Principally it is the typical Mediterranean diet of fish and seafood with fresh vegetables, olives and olive oil rice and pasta.

We recommend that visitors try some traditional Catalan dishes whilst on holiday, especially delicious are 

Escudella I Carn D'olla, vegetable broth with pork, veal and chicken. Pa Amb Tomàquet, 

simply rustic bread, can be toasted, rubbed with tomato pulp and dressed with oil and salt; these delcious breakfast can also be served with ham, sausage or tortilla.

Coca is a very thin dough baked with onions, peppers and other vegetables served with and meats, or fish (especially sardines).

Climate
Most of the time Roses basks in warm sunshine; the summers are long, with the heat alleviated by gentle breezes caressing the verdant and sometimes sylvan landscape where here and there mountains tumble down towards a crystal sea.

Autumn and spring weather is mostly fine, with clear skies and thoroughly agreeable temperatures. The short winter can be wet and windy at times. However it is not unusual in January for example for the mercury to rise above the confines of temperatures inferior to 20C.

We were there at the busiest two week window, so would have been better if it was quieter for us.
