Beyond that there’s art, history and outdoor activities aplenty.
Near the village of Fontanilles, close to the coast and the villages of Ullastret and Peratallada, Inntravel (01653 617001; uk) also has several traditional farmhouse apartments with exposed wooden beams and fireplaces, attached to a 17th-century working farm.
In fact this stretch of the coast is a foodie’s paradise and Catalonia – where the Costa Brava lies – has one of the highest concentrations of Michelin-starred chefs in Spain, not to mention superb, locally produced wines.
Little wonder that this has been the holiday spot of choice for well-heeled Barcelonesas and in-the-know French for years.
The Costa Brava, brilliant and beguiling all at once.
But it’s very often forgotten by British holidaymakers – well, no more.
