The resort of L'Estartit is only an hour from the main border crossing on the Perpignan - Barcelona motorway. Take the 1st Figueres turn off and then follow signs to Girona on state road N11. You'll have Figueres on the right hand side. Take the turn off marked L'Escala. Follow signs to L'Escala and Torroella de Montgri. (Ignore a turn off to Torroella de Fluvia... That's a different Torroella!) Eventually you see Torroella de Montgri and L'Escala signposted in separate directions. Continue straight ahead following Torroella de Montgri. There will be a left turn further on marked again Torroella de Montgri and you'll finally drive through Torroella de Montgri and arrive at L'Estartit. Entering L'Estartit you'll cross a roundabout with GP supermarket on the left hand side. Continue straight on and take the next left which has a very small sign on the left hand side saying "Mas Figueres" It is an unmadeup road and the first right is our road "Cami Vell" which is a popular local biking and hiking track.
(If you miss this small turn off you'll see a Lidl supermarket on the right hand side and this will mean you have gone to far)
Villa Catalan is third house on the right with two separate entrance gates, numbers 14 - 16 written on the wall and a "Villa Catalan" sign on the wall of the house.

There are a number of major car hire firms available in Girona airport and that is an excellent option. There is good in house parking at Villa Catalan. Obviously it is best to book on line well in advance to obtain the best prices.
