School trips to Costa Brava
Safe, inspiring and scenic, Costa Brava occupies an enviable location on Spain's Costa Brava coastline, within easy reach of airports, training sites and fixtures.
Students will appreciate the close proximity to Barcelona, where Spain's Olympic stadium can be experienced. Staff can relax in this safe and welcoming resort, where amenities and Blue Flag beaches are conveniently located within walking distance of the hotel.
With its Mediterranean climate, Costa Brava is a year-round destination; we suggest visiting in May Half Term or at Easter, when the weather is warm and there is a large choice of teams to play. For a quieter stay with milder weather, October and February half terms are also recommended.
