On a pine-clad hilltop overlooking the bay of Calella de Palafrugell. The beaches at Calella, Llafranc, Tamariu and Aiguablava, as well as the smaller coves around them, are all within ten minutes' drive. The medieval hilltop town of Begur is similarly a short drive away.
You get a lot of floor space for your euro here, as the 25 rooms are amongst the most spacious I’ve seen on the Costa Brava. My favourites are the ones in the old building, which have arched ceilings and big, grand old wooden doors. They don’t, however, have air-conditioning, so if you prefer a more modern feel (and indeed air-conditioning), go for the ones in the newer annexe, which have warm red and yellow walls and charcoal grey stone floors. All the rooms have got very generously proportioned, contemporary bathrooms.
These comprise mainly the pool and gardens, as well as the terrace restaurant.
Eating and drinking
Breakfast is a buffet by the pool with super-fresh croissants and pastries. The chic, modern restaurant includes a large, pretty outdoor terrace looking out to the pool.
Infinity pool with clear views across to the bay at Calella de Palafrugell and sun loungers around it. Also a hotel spa and gym where you can have saunas, massages and Jacuzzis, as well as various other spa treatments. The hotel also can arrange diving and sailing.
Who stays there
Mostly couples from Europe and America, with a high proportion of Spanish and Catalans.
Entrance to the spa isn’t included in the rates.
