Roses & Cadaques
It was June and we were needing already to be back by the sea, having some sun and enjoying all what the beach has to offer. So we decided to plan a long weekend, a getaway weekend just for us, somewhere where is not that far that we can take the car to go. So we decided to visit Roses, Spain…
Our hotel it was just in front of the beach, so we just had to cross the street to laid down on the sand… It was just perfect!
Those days were just great… Not too many people, beautiful landscapes, delicious food… So what else we would need to spend a great long weekend? Maybe couple Aperol Spritz in front of the sea to make it even better? Oh yes!
After few days over there, we decided to go to explore a little bit more the area and around and the more we advanced, the cutest it was…
One morning after having breakfast, we just took the car and we decided to go to visit a Lighthouse that the staff of our hotel had recommended us…. So we went to Crap de Creus lighthouse in Cadaques. The road to go is pretty good so it was very easy to get there, like 50 minutes from Roses. Once we arrived there, we were amazed by the beautiful view that welcome us up there…
Our visit didn’t last too long cause the weather conditions were not the best, it was a lot of wind and we didn’t have the right closes to be there for so long. So we decided to go down to Cadaques to find a nice restaurant where we could have lunch. To be honest, we never expected to find such a beautiful town as Cadaques is. Honestly I could live there without doubts…! The town doesn’t allow cars at all so everybody needs to park their cars at the parking lot at the entrance of the town, so we did it and then we started walking to get in the center of Cadaques. And the most we walked, the most we loved it!
Beautiful flowers everywhere, white houses with red roofs, blue doors and windows. The mediterranean just in front of us… It was magical!
So I thought to myself… Are we just arrived in Paradise? I felt that I just wanted to stay there forever! What a magical and beautiful place! We decided that we just don’t want to have lunch there, we wanted to spend the whole day in Cadaques so we did it.
Happiness was definitely here… We both loved this place and we definitely want to come back. We can’t recommend it enough…. Cadaques YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!
And when we thought that we saw everything… We found this nice restaurant on our way back home, near to the french border and to be honest it was amazing! Food was just like heaven, the service was A1 and the view to enjoy a great Paella with a glass of white wine… was just the cherry on the top to finish our unforgettable long weekend.
Y cuando pensamos que lo habíamos visto todo… Encontramos este lindo restaurante camino de regreso a casa, cerca a la frontera con Francia y para ser honesta fue espectacular! La comida fue como en los cielos, el servicio fue de primera y la vista para disfrutar de una increíble paella con una copa de vino blanco, fue lo mejor que nos pudo pasar antes de terminar nuestro inolvidable fin de semana largo.
I hope you enjoyed our adventure and I inspired you a little to visit these beautiful cities someday. Thank you very much for stopping by!
