How doesn’t want to go to Spain? This country offers fun, excellent weather, culture, fashion and a unique local warmth. But Spain is much more.
However, when it comes to planning a trip we must always choose a hotel, this space will be our second home and to be honest, what happens when find a stunning hotel that is married to a fabulous gastronomic proposal?
The answer to this question: absolute pleasure
Torre Del Remei
This work of art created by one of Gaudi’s disciples is based in Girona; -only an hour away from Barcelona- this modern palace is a proud member of Relais & Châteaux, and it’s a splendid option for those who seek to be at the foot of the Catalan Pyrenees. However, in side this hotel, we find a jewel: Chef Josep Maria Boix, who bought the mansion and assembled a menu filled with creativity. Far from the traditional foie-gras raviolis, our recommendation is more inclined to the steak tartar. An unmissable experience is to have a great wine at the hotel terrace.
Castell Son Claret
Mallorca receives us with its beaches and summer climate, but there is a secret it’s not willing to reveal at first. We find this XVIII century hacienda guarded by a dense forest which is mirrored by a beautiful lake, here we find a castle. Capdellá Calviá is home to Fernando Pérez Arellano, chef and owner of Zaranda restaurant -yes, the same one from Madrid-, within his kitchen walls we will always find novelties; for example, the four station mallorquin allmond, but the classics will always be there to claim their throne.
Marqués del Riscal Elciego Hotel
Tucked by the Riojan hills, this stop forced us to enter the Spanish viticulture lands. It’s imposing and modern structure is only comparable to its gastronomic offer and it’s cellar. With one Michelin Star, the Marqués del Riscal restaurant is the playroom of chef Francis Paniego. who grants his diners with an innovative and excellent proposal. Have we already talked about the wine cellar? it holds over 200 international bottles and an endless amount of unrepeatable strains. For wine lovers this point in the map is a must.
