“Up the hill and back in time”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

Do not miss this lovely little town, as it is a relic from medieval times. A really authentic and unspoiled village up the hill, a short rode away from San Feliu de Guixols.
Do not miss the restaurant Can Roquet

“Timeless tranquility just inland from the Costa Brava.”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

Many tourists love the Costa Brava for its relatively unspoilt coastal villages, at least by comparison with the horrors of Benidorm or Torremolinos. But few venture inland to discover little gems like Romanya de la Selva.

With a few really classy restaurants, stunning views over the hillsides, particularly as the sun sinks in the West and an ancient burial site, the "Cova d'en Daina", just off the road to Calonge, this is a highly recommended detour.

Check out my reviews of the Can Roquet restaurant on the Placa de l'Esglesia for more inspiration. You won't regret it,.

“Get away from it all, just minutes from the coast!”
Reviewed 18 January 2013

Romanyà is a lovely quiet village at the top of the Gavarres hills just inland from the (central) Costa Brava. The views are spectacular. There are a couple of restaurants, but don't miss the "Cova d'en Daina" dolmen, about 600 metres along the Calonge road.
