Originally a fishing village, Calella has grown into a small resort where development has been strictly controlled so that the original charm of the sea front and village has not been affected. The beach front is most picturesque with various sandy bays and coves. In place of high rise blocks of apartments the emphasis is generally on small well planned developments in wooded landscaped gardens. Calella will meet many people's 'idea of the perfect resort', large enough to contain excellent amenities including good restaurants, bars and shops, yet small enough to avoid the package tour.
During the high season months July and August the changeover is always on Friday. The house will be ready at 16 hours and must be left at 10.00 hours the day of departure. The rest of the year the dates are flexible and bookings can be taken from any other day.
