The anti-climax when returning home from a lovely break away is hideous! However, scrolling through images taken on holiday is enough to keep you smiling and reminiscing about time away from it all!
We have just returned from a lovely week’s break away in Spain with my parents and the central heating has been on constantly ever since as I try to catch up on Sim’s Life work! Despite it not being as warm as I would have liked, we managed to get out and about exploring a lot, taking lots of stunning images along the way.
Here are just a few images taken from our Holiday in the Costa Brava!
The views from our apartment balcony were simply breathtaking, making waking up each morning slightly more pleasant. Palamos, the east coast port town can just be seen in the background – a lovely 5k walk around there if you fancied it! 😉
The east coast of Spain is absolutely beautiful, with a lot of pride taken to keeping areas pristine. I have never seen so many gardeners and maintenance people tending to gardens, flowers beds on the beach, street cleaners and much more. Not only that but roads were super smooth, not one pothole in sight and I was extremely jealous!
There were marinas everywhere, which were amazing to walk around – I’m not even a fan of the sea, but was still jealous of some super yatchs moored up!
Colourful streets lined the town, making it an absolute pleasure to walk through and great for photo opportunities. The gorgeous church below was nestled inbetween houses, adding character to the area.
Exploring little towns and villages outside of Palamos was equally as breathtaking, in some respects it almost felt as if you were stumbling across hidden gems. I loved this particular town for it’s Portofino vibe – it’s small beach offering a wonderful intimate feel; with those views, who wouldn’t want to sunbathe there!
There are so many walking routes in the Costa Brava and we were fortunate to have a little trek on one close to our apartment. With lots of vertiginous cliffs and hidden coves, the going isn’t flat so expect to be walking up and down cliff face steps which aren’t suitable for pushchairs. The gorgeous bay area below was magical and as you can see… deserted! The east coast has many intimate hideaways like this if you want to escape away from the bustle of the main beach stretches.
I hadn’t visited Spain for many years and was surprised at how beautiful it actually is. Having never visited the Costa Brava before, I shall definitely be returning! With Barcelona only 90 minutes away via car, it would be a great excuse to finally visit the city and tick that off my bucket list!
Liv absolutely loved the holiday, there was so much for children to do, with epic climbing areas dotted around in places along the beaches and pavement areas. Not forgetting we were staying directly across from the beach, she was daft enough to attempt a little swim in the sea, despite most people round us being wrapped up in puffa jackets!
It was just the break away we needed to recharge our batteries in time for the Easter Bank Holiday, leading us nicely into planning our next trip away! Have you enjoyed a break away of the Easter holidays?
