Now imagine a place where you are just a few kilometers from the beautiful beaches of the Mediterranean, or a short car ride from the majestic views of Pyrenees Mountains - some of the most storied peaks in the world. It is a smaller, more serene geography, where things go a little bit slower and are a lot less crowded. The nearby beaches, although beautiful and well maintained, are not crammed with tourists trying to beat the heat, but are comfortably sparse. They make you feel as though you have staked out your own private domain to sun and enjoy the cool waves and breezes of the Mediterranean Sea.
It's a quiet, remarkable geography, with not only wonderful vistas, but also a rich and storied history that you can explore during your visit. There really isn't a shortage of things to do while in Girona, which is located in the historic Catalan Region. But unlike the busier regions of Europe, the stress of travel takes a backseat to relaxation.
Here, they relax. And should you visit, you will, as well. And while you are there if you get a yearning for the hustle and bustle of the larger European cities, Barcelona, with a population of over 4 million, is just a short ninety minute drive away.
Accommodations are plentiful in the region, but a rustic bed and breakfast is an ideal way to enjoy the full experience of your visit. I recommend that you stay at Can Selleretas, located at C/Sant Pere nº8 17474 Vilamacolum, Girona, Spain. Can Selleretas will provide you with a comfortable stay at reasonable prices. The food is outstanding and is representative of the tastes of the local gentry. You can be sure that during your stay at Can Selleretas you will get a generous sampling of the local cuisine!

If you are looking for a remarkable, memorable trip to Europe that will take you off the beaten path, you will want to consider making a trek to this region of northeastern Spain. And while you are there, be sure to drop in and say hello to our good friends at Can Selleretas!
