The coastal town of Roses is heralded for its beautiful beaches and west-facing views onto incredible sunsets. It sits on the coast of the Costa Brava in Catalonia, Spain, where the inviting Gulf of Roses means plenty of opportunities for swimming, sailing, and other water activities. Our Roses vacation rentals are perfectly situated to experience all this town has to offer.
About 20 miles east of Figueres and 105 from Barcelona, Costa Brava is ideal for a quiet beachside getaway with opportunities to travel for more of Spain’s biggest attractions. Make the short trip to Figueres to visit the Salvador Dalí Museum—you’ll feel like you’re walking right into the eccentric artist’s mind—or make a day trip to Barcelona to admire the various landmarks by renowned architect Antoni Gaudí.
If you’d prefer to stick close to your Roses vacation rental, you’ll quickly learn why the vast majority of tourists come for its beaches. Sprawling, pristine, and family-friendly beaches are within easy access. But just minutes from the center of town you’ll discover Platja Palangres, a more tranquil beach that’s popular with locals. Some of our Roses villa rentals even sit on the city’s beautiful canals, so you’ll never have to part with your scenic water views.
While you’re here, be sure to sample the local specialty, suquet. This Catalonian seafood stew originated as a simple dish of freshly caught fish and boiled potatoes, and has become a staple among the region. There’s a friendly rivalry among local cooks, and restaurants will frequently participate in suquet cook-offs. Make sure you get a healthy sample of the local flavor!
Roses has it all: beaches, water activities, shops, restaurants, and accessibility to major Spanish cities and landmarks. Make your next getaway a truly special one with our Roses vacation rentals.
