catalonia spain

The Catalonia region, in north eastern Spain, is known for the beaches of Costa Brava as well as the Pyrenees Mountains.  The regional capital is Barcelona.

For adventure, head north where the Pyrenees rise to 3,000m peaks. Here, hiking trails weave among valleys and lonely villages are crowned with Romanesque churches and monasteries.  Our featured destinatioin is in the foothills of the Pyrenees: a gorgeous boutique hideaway called La Vella Farga.
For bright lights and the fun of the city, spend some time in Barcelona staying at W Hotel Barcelona - with probably the best all-round set up in the city:  pool, beach, spa, fitness, cuisine, vibe, luxury, yoga and pilates.
Catalonia feels distinct from the rest of Spain, and its four provinces enclose an impressive wealth of natural splendour. Pyrenean peaks loom above meadows and fertile vineyards, plains are pock-marked with volcanic cones, and rocky coves punctuate sandy beaches.
The Costa Brava’s shores are its biggest lure, though travellers will also discover medieval architecture and Jewish history in Girona and Besalú, and Salvador Dalí's gloriously surreal 'theatre-museum' in Figueres.

Weather and seasons

Barcelona is a year round destination with hot summers and mild winters.  The same is true of the Costa Blanca region.  However, the temperature is somewhat cooler the higher you head in to the Pyrenees - for many this is ideal for summer.  In the winter, expect snow!

Getting here

The primary airport serving Catalonia is Barcelona, but Girona is also serviced by UK airports.
