General

  • Surrounded by a peaceful woodland and a small river
  • A short drive from the Lake of Banyoles
  • Three pools, restaurant, playground and sports courts

If you find the scorching Spanish sun just a bit too blazing while on hol at Girona's Camping Esponellá, how in luck are you. Because it's only a short drive of 15 minutes or so from this peaceful place to the famed waters of the Lake of Banyoles, the biggest natural lake in Catalonia.

Such is the spectacular setting of this watery body that the 1992 Barcelona Olympics had its sailing events here, and the World Rowing Championships were held on the lake in 2004. You can of course mess about in boats on the waters by your very own self, by hiring a rowing vessel, taking a trip where someone else takes the tiller, or guiding yourself along in a canoe or kayak. (While keeping a watchful eye out for the Banyoles monster in the watery depths below, but of course…)

On site, three pools – one outdoor and two indoor – are to hand for more water-based shenanigans, and a small river is alongside the grounds for fishing and paddling.

Out of the water, there's miniature golf to amble around on a low-key afternoon if you're feeling (slightly) active under the splendid Spanish sun, and volleyball, tennis or football to have a go at for the truly energetic. Inflatable games and toys are set up at the playground in summer.

Sort a meal or takeaway at the site's Mediterranean restaurant for food without any faff, or use the supermarket for a bit of what you fancy for a post-lake supper: either of these should be followed by a lingering drink at the Camping Esponellá bar, under the setting Spanish sun.

Please note

The outdoor swimming pool is open between 01/04 and 01/10 (subject to weather conditions).

Local attractions

It's eight kilometres from the site to the spectacular waters of the Lake of Banyoles, lauded by experts as the best place for watersports in all of Catalonia. Sailing, rowing, boat trips, canoeing and kayaking are all available at the lake; start off at the Club Natació Banyoles or Banyoles Watersports Centre to see what's on offer all around.

If you're not much for watersporting, you can cycle, hike, mountain bike or amble around the lake's perimeter, or lurk in its shoreside shrubbery for a birdwatching or nature-spotting afternoon. Bike and Segways are available to hire, although possibly not the brightest idea if you're on a hidden birdwatching trip.

Golfer? Take your clubs for the 15-minute car ride to Torremirona Golf Club in Navata, one of the oldest courses on the Costa Brava. Its nine holes make for a challenging teeing-off time ; if you're not an experienced golfer, or you'd rather take things much more easily, stroll along to the spa at the club instead.

Also much recommended are the medieval town of Besalú, 15 minutes' drive away, the Dalí Museum in Figueras, within 25, and the 40-minute drive to the splendid La Garrotxa Volcanic Zone Natural Park.

Girona is about 35 minutes away, and Barcelona an hour and a half.
