Half Term Holidays with the kids

Catalunya is a tourist hot spot during the summer months, but for most of us that live here, it's just a little too warm to do anything except go to the beach in July and August. Out of season, you'll find no crowds, warm water and cool, comfortable nights. School half term October holidays in the sun are a lot cheaper and Casa Cal Domino is a sustainable Villa with solar power backed up with solar virtual battery for the nights, solar powered pool filtration and solar heated domestic water.

Autumn colours in St Celoni de Montseny
Montseny National Park

It's the perfect time to come and enjoy the Costa Brava and Catalunya without the excessive heat and crowds. It's also Autumn here and peak hiking season. The average sea temperature is 21ºC, the average air temperature is also 21ºC and at night a comfortable 14ºC. Most days, you'll still need sun cream to eat a long lazy lunch on a terrace by the sea, and of course, people swim here all through the year. If a sea temperature of 21ºC is too cold for you, you can always relax in our heated infinity pool which we guarantee will be a minimum of 26ºC until the end of October. The Jacuzzi is always heated to 38ºC and the sauna is also available.
