The best hotels on the Costa Brava for families with children
Do you remember those summers when the days were really long and it was sunny every single day and we went from the swimming pool to the beach and then from the beach back to the swimming pool, we climbed trees, we dug holes in the sand and played ball until we fell asleep exhausted on the sofa? Well, now, we are the parents and it's time to relive those summers with our own children on the Costa Brava!
For families with children who are thinking about a getaway on the Costa Brava, I've chosen the best hotels for you to visit with children.
