Wild & Wonderful- the Virtues of Costa Brava
Costa Brava is the name given to the coastal region of north eastern Catalonia, Spain in the province of Girona. The coastline spans 200 km between the border of France & down to the Barcelona province border. The name means 'wild coast' & refers to the rugged beauty & wilderness of the environment. Craggy precipices and hairpin turns, stark mountains set against a cobalt blue sea and pretty fishing villages and towns combine to make this a prime tourist destination for Spain. It has been home to artists such as Dali, Gaudi & Chagall as well as movie stars such as Elizabeth Taylor & it remains popular with celebrities & film makers. The Costa Brava offers the magnetic attraction of a vibrant and artistic Barcelona with great beaches, lively resorts plus a range of golf, yachting, watersports and other activities for visitors to enjoy.
