Visiting the tourist sights of the Costa Brava. There are many guide books, maps and other tourist information in the house. Melissa has forty years experience of life in the area and is happy to give you lots of tips about where to go, where to eat, what to visit or where to shop, etc.
Bird life is abundant and exotic.
We see golden oriols, bee-eaters, hoopooes or nightingales in the garden and a range of raptors including buzzards, egrets and herons in the local fields.
Aiguamolls de l’Empordà Bird Sanctuary is only a 40 minute drive.
The area is full of every sort of exciting subjects to paint:
Seasonal colours, medieval villages, Catalan life, flora and fauna, wonderful sunsets, etc.
Come with a group of painter friends, share your ideas and achievements in idyllic surroundings and enjoy an excellent meal afterwards or stay a little longer and do your own thing away from the madding crowd.
There are walks to suit all abilities.
Around the hamlet of Millàs there are many walks in the gentle hills, on dirt tracks or from one village to another with places to visit or views to see or wild flowers to find on the way.
