Highs & Lows

  • La Malcontenta is located just a short, beautiful walk from El Castell beach: the last virgin beach on the Costa Brava. There’s a nice little beach shag to have lunch!

  • Although located in the proximity to some major cities such as Girona and Barcelona, La Malcontenta feels like you’re in the middle of nature: so quiet, surrounded by pine woods and the sounds of crickets.

  • The interiors are beautiful: colourful fabrics and interesting art works are combined with the historic building in such a nice way. You feel the attention to detail in every nook.

  • The room was enormous: a huge bed, wooden floors, a private terrace, very high ceilings and spacious bathroom. A little house on its own.

  • To finish up this place, it would be so great to have some more coffee table books around: about art, the history of the region as well as reading books. This always gives soul to a place.
