Furthermore, Rough Guides recently named Girona, which is situated just 15 minutes away from PGA Catalunya, as one of its top 5 destinations to visit in 2012.
Girona’s temperate year round climate of 23°C and its proximity to the coast, the Pyrenees and Barcelona all make this a much sought after Mediterranean hotspot.

Whether it is spring, summer, autumn or winter, there is something for everyone at PGA Catalunya:
Beyond days spent on the award winning golf courses at PGA Catalunya there is a plethora of options at your fingertips. A spring favourite is exploring the eastern region of Catalunya by horseback. The varied Spanish terrain, including stunning flower-filled meadows, vast mountains, meandering rivers and long stretches of beach, makes horse riding an exciting alternative and promises inspiring surroundings.
During the summer months owners may desire some much deserved R&R relaxing on a nearby beach. PGA Catalunya residents have exclusive access to the charming Hotel Santa Marta just 25 minutes away providing guests with access to their superb Beach Club & Spa. The hotel also boasts tennis courts, a swimming pool and various restaurants; the ideal way to relax after a round or two of golf.
A great way to explore and really immerse yourself in the region during the peak summer season is to take part in the Catalonian outdoor festivals, where the streets come alive with performances and music. Nearby Barcelona has a large annual festival, Festes de la Merce, which takes place in September, involving plenty of live music events, astonishing firework displays and Cava tasting, the national drink of Catalonia.
From the mountains to the sea, Catalonia provides all manner of terrain for enjoying the outdoor lifestyle. During the autumn months, families can enjoy the national parks and reserves as well as numerous remarkable areas to hike and bike. Parc Nacional d’Aiguestortes, Catalonia’s national park, is set amongst the breathtaking Pyrenees Mountains, a beautiful mountain range with forests and lakes up to 3,000 metres high, providing a stunning backdrop from which to discover the region’s natural beauty.
Those in the know will agree that playing golf in the winter uncovers a number of unforeseen benefits including quieter greens and fairways, leaving time to enjoy leisurely rounds and unrivalled scenery as you putt your way to par.
With the mountains on the horizon, PGA owners, their families and friends may be tempted to take to the slopes of La Molina and Masella which are just an hour away. Together the two stations have 100 kilometres of ski slopes and make up one of the largest skiing areas in the Pyrenees, with pistes and descents for all levels.
With the proximity to airports, leisure facilities, coastal towns, spectacular mountains and of course the superb choice of restaurants and shops, PGA Catalunya is a truly year round destination promising month after month of activities and pursuits.
