About the Location
It is a strategic point of the Catalan coast, where mountain and sea combine as the Pyrenees take a dive in the Mediterranean Sea. Be ready for a unique landscape full of natural surroundings.
1r Carboneres is located in a privileged headland area with Sea at South, North and East. The building is in a very quiet residential neighbourhood with plenty of trees around.
It has the advantage of being very close to the Port de Llançà area with restaurants, pizzerias, bars, shops, bakeries, supermarkets, beauty salons, a diving centre, kayak clubs, sailing, yacht rentals…
In the Port area, there are a few places that are great for small children such as playgrounds (also one on the Platja del Port Beach) and an attraction park with a barbecue restaurant.
When it comes to going to the beach, this apartment is perfectly situated. You will have a choice of 7 different nearby beaches within a radius of 500 meters. The closest one, Carboneres Beach at 180 meters, is one of our favourites to practice snorkelling or free diving. Don’t expect fine sand on that beach though, if you are looking for fine sand some other beaches would suit better your taste.
Actually, there are over 30 beaches in the vicinity of Llançà, so you can explore a different one every day. Visit the Explore Costa Brava section for more information.
Just a few steps away there is the scenic coastal walking path “Camí de Ronda”, which stretches along the coast several kilometres in both directions, perfect for a pleasant promenade. You will find people trekking, strolling, running, walking the dog, cycling…
You can take a left and will get to the port in no time via a very scenic path along the coastline, or take a right direction Port de la Selva, which is approximately 7-8 kilometres away.
We regularly take a walk along “Camí de Ronda” till the next town and we never get tired of it. Along the way, you can find a large number of beaches, coves and different accesses from the rocky formations to the sea.
A great place to practice any sport: swimming, snorkelling, scuba diving, fishing, sailing, windsurfing, kayaking, hiking, cycling, running, taking a scenic walk, or just relaxing in the beach.
It is frankly an ideal place to spend your holidays if you are looking for comfort, calmness, convenience, inspiring views, a fresh interior or a nice environment to practice any sport.

Reservations are for full weeks and arrivals and departures are always on Saturdays.
Arrivals are from 16h to 20h. We can adapt these times depending on each situation, but It is always necessary that we agree an estimated time of arrival.
Departures are before 10h.
We love pets, and you are most welcome to bring them with you as long as they are well raised and will not destroy the apartment 😉
We have installed a WiFi private network for our guests. If you are interested in using the WiFi, the price is just 15€ a week.
2. Bed linen and towels rent:
We offer, in case you would prefer not to bring it yourselves, a rental of bed linen and towels. The price is 15€ per person. One set includes bed linen and a bath towel per person, plus and a hand towels and kitchen rags.
3. Air condition and heat pump:
The price includes 30kWh/week of electricity usage, which is the normal consumption of an average family. Because we had cases in the past where our guests made an irresponsible use of air condition (such as leaving it on during the whole day with open windows) we started asking for a deposit of 20€/week at the beginning of the stay. At the end of the stay we read the consumption, and in case the 30kWh/week which are included are exceeded, we charge the difference at a rate of 0.56€/kWh. You can decide whether you would like to use the air conditioner or not at the moment you enter the apartment.
