Finques Frigola was founded 50 years ago by Lluis Frigola and his wife Maria Theresa, previously they we in the cork industry owning a large cork factory in Palafrugell...
In 1960 they saw the opportunity when foreign tourists started visiting the area, initially the idea was to open a small hotel but after a visit over the border to France they returned to build a small block of apartments to rent out in Llafranc, Calella to follow and Tamariu.
The head office we have today on the beach in Calella de Palafrugell was opened in 1963. It was to be the first Estate Agent in Calella de Palafrugell for renting holiday apartments and selling too .. also covering Llafranc and Tamariu. They worked hard to find clients around Europe and often made trips to the UK to find potencial agents .. Beach Villas and Thomson Holidays were once a part of the business thirty years ago different nowadays when we have our own individual and independent guests.
Finques Frigola is now run by the second generation, having expanded in recent years by opening in Tamariu and returning to Palafrugell. We are official estate agents ‘administrador de finques’ since 1977 and ‘API ’ no 296 since 1983.
