Casa Clara is the first in the hostel category to get Lonely Birder Approved. It is now in the hands of Marga and Ana, who both know the nearby Aiguamolls de L’Empordà Natural Park like the backs of their hands, having worked there for many years. There is much evidence of this close association with the Park in the hostel, with details like a small reference library where you can consult volumes of the Handbook of the Birds of the World, for example.
There is also a restaurant where you can taste dishes made from fresh, locally-sourced produce, and the menu is great value both for lunch and dinner.
All this along with its charming, old location of Catelló d’Empúries and its nearby three natural parks of the Alt Empordà (Alberes, Cap de Creus and Aiguamolls) make Casa Clara a great place for a get-way, an overnight stay or a refuelling stop.
