The village Navata with further restaurants, bars, schools and shopping possibilities is only 5 minutes away. The airport of Girona can be reached in 30 min by car, the airport of Barcelona in 90 min. The nearby train station of Vilafant / Figueres offers national and international high speed connections to Girona, Barcelona, Madrid, and Paris. The sea can be reached in half an hour and the nearest ski resorts in the Pyrenees are just about an hour away. The nearby Garrotxa offers many hiking and other outdoor recreational activities.
The village Navata is situated at the border to Pla de l’Estany between the rivers Manol and Fluvià. As the area is quite flat, wheat can be cultivated and cattle breeding and poultry farming is practiced.
The remains of the old town wall and the church of San Pedro de Navata are well-known sights.
Surrounded romantically by forests, far away from noise and traffic, avenues of trees in the city centre as well as eldery men, sitting on a bench in front of the church and smoking pipe but also cats, scurrying through the alleys can be found here.
Navata is also the home of the "Giants". Here, Ventura & Hosta produce their figures and sell them to the surrounding municipalities. Every single municipality currently has its own figures which it takes out for their city festival and lets them dance. But also private people are able to buy figures or masks here, even in an individual shape like portaits. www.venturahosta.net
Navata is a place to withdraw from the hustle and bustle of the big cities but if one likes to dive into city life again, Figueres is only 10km away.
