The area and how to find your way around

Catalonia: a beautiful nature with strong contrasts

Catalonia is located in the northwest of the Iberian Peninsula and extends between the Ebro Valley and the central and eastern Pyrenean slopes, serving as a border with France. Its diverse landscape makes Catalonia a highly appreciated destination for many tourists, driven by very different interests. Thus, in its more than 500 kilometres of Mediterranean coastline, there are a good number of coves and beaches with fine sand and crystal-clear waters, in towns with excellent facilities and entertainment centres. Catalonia welcomes travellers at any time of the year. Offering fun in the snow, adventure, good atmosphere on the beach and great cultural and artistic richness in its cities, Catalonia always presents an attractive face for those who are fortunate enough to visit it.

Where to book a holiday home in Catalonia

The benign Mediterranean coastal climate, with mild winters and pleasant summers is ideal for staying in a cheap beach home in Salou or Cambrils. Whether we choose between the beautiful cliffs and hidden coves of the Costa Brava or the vast expanses of sand of the Costa Dorada, relaxation and fun are guaranteed. For those who prefer the tranquillity of a country house, the rugged Catalan orography, with the highest peaks of the Pyrenees, the gentle elevations of the Mediterranean System and the green plains of the Ebro Valley allow all kinds of activities in full nature. The continental climate of the interior, with dry summers and cold winters invites you to rest in a house with its cosy fire, which Holidu offers you, to rest at night after a day of skiing in the resort of Baqueira Beret of Valle de Aran, or the Boi Taüll Resort of Valle de Boi. Or after a spectacular day of hiking in the Pyrenees Sierra de Monasterios.
