I have read a bit about Costa Brava and is starting to worry that we will not be seeing any local, authentic Spain but rather spend our holidays in between drunk European tourists eating the food from home partying all day/night long (I guess you understand what I mean).
We have rented a house in Sa Riera. Is it true that the Begur/Sa Riera area is "better" than other Costa Brava areas (in my definition of the word) or what can I expect? Which villages/cities within 1-2 hours driving where we can enjoy the Spanish culture, sights and food should we visit during our 2 weeks stay and which areas should we better avoid?
We are a Norwegian/Dutch couple living in Germany and do not want to go to Spain to bump into "neighbours" from home (or drunk British tourists) and eat the food from home!!
