Lloret de Mar events

This coming weekend 16-19th June Lloret will be stepping back in time to the days when many of its people went over to the Americas to earn the fortunes which on their return enabled them build the grand villas and mansions we can still see in some of the streets in Lloret today.

Vilanova de Sau & Folgueroles.



Out in the Catalan countryside heading towards Vic are 2 beautiful little villages as you turn off the C25,  the first one you reach is Folgueroles and just a few kilometres further on is Vilanova de Sau. From both of these picturesque villages you have amazing views of the surrounding mountains, well worth a visit if you can!
