Lifestyle advice for families on the Maresme Coast - MumAbroad

   

MumAbroad Maresme & Girona

 

The beautiful Maresme coast lies just North of Barcelona and stretches for around 50 kilometres from Montgat to Blanes. Its commutable distance to Barcelona, outdoor lifestyle, numerous sporting facilities, excellent beaches as well as its attractive inland villages and coastal towns makes Maresme a very popular location for young families with children. With an enviable year-round climate, Maresme enjoys long, hot summers and mild, sunny winters, ensuring an abundance of summer activities for kids and teenagers. The Catalan Pyrenees are also just a short drive away, offering plenty of fun outdoor activities for kids in winter too. There are few places in the world where you can be on the ski slopes in the morning and enjoying a sundowner in the afternoon. It also has two renowned international schools as well as reputable local schools.

 

Girona Province incorporates the city of the same name, the coastal region of the Costa Brava and inland regions of the Alt and Baix Empordàs. Girona city is the province’s capital and is located in the North East of Catalonia, 99 km from Barcelona. It is renowned for its medieval architecture, walled Old Quarter (Barri Vell) and the Roman remains of the Força Vella fortress. In recent years, increasing numbers of international families are choosing to relocate to this wealthy region thanks to its reputation as having Spain’s best quality of life, thriving local economy, stunning scenery and good connections with the rest of Europe.
