Easter in Lloret de Mar

This Easter weekend we have seen many more places opening up for business for the season and also the town is much more lively as people are now wanting to take a much needed break from the cold weather at home! The holiday weekend weather could have been better here but it has been quite mild so it hasn't kept visitors from venturing out and enjoying the shops, bars, cafes and restaurants and all the beautiful coastal scenery that Lloret de Mar has to offer.

A day In Caldes de Malavella

 Only 20 minutes or so drive from Lloret is a nice little town which is famous for its water, just about every bottle of water with gas (agua con gas) which you buy from the bars, cafes and restaurants in this area would come from the Caldes area. The most famous one goes under the brand of Vichy Catalan, other brands from Caldes are Agua Malavella and Sant Narciso, each brand has their own unique favorite is the Vichy brand. Their very grand restaurant/hotel are set in beautiful grounds...see the first 2 photos here.
