Other information


Catalan is the common language of the area, but most people understand Castilian Spanish, and French is understood many Spanish here due to it's proximity to France. Although you should get by with English, a few words in Catalan is always appreciated (and they will not laugh at your mispronunciation!). Lessons in all schools are now held in Catalan with Castilian Spanish and English being taught equally as foreign languages.

The international dialling code for Spain is 0034. (The UK dialing code is 0044).

The power supply is 220 volts and sockets accept the two round-pin style. Many villas have adapters.

Visitors from the United States will need a transformer for their 100-120 volt appliances.

Prescription and non-prescription drugs are available from 'farmacias' displaying a large green cross.

Tap water is generally safe to drink, but cheap mineral water is preferred by most visitors.

A tip of 5% is usual for good service in restaurants, taxis, etc, but cafes/bars only expect loose change.

If flying to Spain, pre-booking Car Hire is essential in the peak summer period. Shop around the Hire companies, but include Economy Car Hire - they should beat all your other quotes!
