This is a very peaceful base from which there are plenty of nice walks into the park or all the way to Girona on paths over the hills. The village of Celrà is only a 5 mins walk and has local shops, banks and bars as well as an old part of town around the church.
Ideally you need a car for easy access and to take advantage of the Costa Brava (20 mins away) and interesting places like Pubol, part of Dali's legacy to his wife Gala which is only a 10 min drive away and the medieval villages of Madremanya and the pottery centre of La Bisbal.
La Torre could not be easier to reach from Girona airport (20 mins) and the main motorway that goes south to Barcelona (1 hr) and north to the French border (50 mins). Getting into the Old Town of Girona to explore the Jewish quarter or the Cathedral is a 10 min drive and here there is a wide variety of good restaurants, terraces to sit on and shops to tempt you as well as the open air market on tuesdays and saturdays in the Devesa park.
