Rosas is ideally situated on the NE coast of Spain, only 20 minutes from the French border. It is approximately 50 minutes from the old walled town of Girona with its excellent shopping and convenient airport and is approximately 1/½ hours from the electric city of Barcelona. Figueres is the nearest market town containing an excellent pedestrian shopping area and is, of course, home to the world famous Dalí Museum.
Rosas is a quiet, safe, family friendly town with many excellent facilities and restaurants. It does not cater for stag/hen parties, problematic nightclubs or large coach parties/groups.
Figueres also has a railway station which will soon be on the main TGV line from Paris to Barcelona and Malaga. Northbound trains also divert through Cannes and Nice on their way to Monte Carlo.
Other places of interest along the beautiful coast are Cadaqués, the artists’ colony, Port Lligat, where Dali had his quirky “castle” and, further south, the Roman ruins of Empurias.
A short drive inland into the mountains and you are into the green world of pastures and pine forests. Andorra with its skiing and tax-free shopping is approximately 3 hours by Motorway, and there are ski resorts only one and a half hours’ drive away from the villa. The main North/South Autoroute is only 30 minutes from Rosas town centre.
