Travel Blogs from Cadaques
On Sunday we made an early start from Aix, driving westwards towards Spain by local roads. Crossing the Camargue, I looked out over the flat marshes for the famous bulls, cowboys and wild horses, but was rewarded by a couple of adverts for a 'Longhorn Ranch' and two circus like ponys in a field!

... passport control - ans we swept into Spain with a simple Espana sign the only indication that we had crossed no different from the entry in Scotland or Wales from England. First stop in Spain was Figueres for the most voisited toursit atttraction in Spain - the Dali Museum. An amazing building with eggs on the roof and a huge collection of Dali's work inside. The museum even has a few ...
... to paitings to seashell bathtubs. I will say some of the highlights were seeing the original Dalí Lincoln mural (for those of you who haven't been to our home we have a rather large signed print of this painting), Dalí's paintings of the holocoust, and a swimming pool in the shape of a penis. Again, it was a nice change from all the "Jesus art" (as my dad and Zack called it) from the rest of Europe. We also managed to discover a great winery ...
... journey to get there. We hadn't realise the road to Cadaques was so bad and busy and had planned to travel back on our selves to stay at Roses. No bloody way was that happening! We very nearly stayed in the carpark over night to put off the journey back. We decided to leave Cadaques and make the 2 and a half hour journey to Berger that day rather than on Saturday. After getting back over the Cadaques road the roads were delightful. That lasted about an hour and ...
Never a Wednesday was so hoped for me before. Back to France after a week in morocco... I felt that I was just at home in a cozy cozy cozy place along friends ( Sandrine and Frank ) fresh bread was waiting for us and Sandrine also prepared a fresh pizza dough for us to have dinner.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Rocamar Cadaques
Hotel Rocamar is situated at one end of the bay at the beautiful fishing port of Cadaques. Expectation rises as you travel through the narrow lanes of Cadaques and along the seafront. It is situated on a hill and designed so that the restaurant is on the 4th floor, sea on two sides, with the most wonderful views of the picturesque port above the surrounding pine trees.
We were not disappointed with the delicious dinner, which was very good value for money and served with attentive, professional charm by the hotel staff. The breakfast buffet next morning was generous, with the freshest of fruit, bread and pastries as well as both hot and cold meats, yoghurt, cereals and cheese.
Our room was fairly small and simple, with a mountain view, but perfectly clean, witha good sized bathroom and great shower. The public rooms in the hotel were airy and spacious. We liked the sense of history that pervaded the building.
We used the outside swimming pool, which had breathtaking sea and mountain views, with the pebbly beach a few steps below. There was a cafe beside the pool, and in the same area, a tennis court.
If you do not mind an older type hotel, staffed with friendly charming people, enjoy a beautiful place, with artistic history evident every time you turn round, together with delicious food, you will enjoy this hotel.
The hotel was in the upper end of our price bracket, but money well spent. We had a most relaxing stay and hope to return.
