la vella farga

5 nights from £785 la vella farga catalonia

Set at an altitude of 800m in the foothills of the majestic Pyrenees, this recently opened charming boutique hideaway is perfect for a long weekend (or longer) of pristine and peaceful countryside, hiking, excellent food and spectacular accommodation.

Unlike the plains below, La Vella Farga (which means The Old Forge) is protected from extreme summer temperatures and makes a wonderful destination from the spring through to autumn.  The property dates from 1036 and is now an impressive cluster of restored stone buildings and expansive terraces with fabulous 360 degree panoramic views.

This is a place to come for a glamorous, romantic break that can either be sublimely relaxing (think chilling by the large infinity pool, strolling through the forests or enjoying a spa treatment) or active and adventurous (think hiking or cycling in the mountains or personal training).  Of course, most guests enjoy a mix of both!

The bedrooms and suites are supremely luxurious and well appointed, all with beamed ceilings, large windows, and exceptional bathrooms with baths and separate showers.  All are spacious; some are positively enormous.

The food is very good and is building quite a reputation amongst the foodies of Barcelona.  We would highly recommend trying the healthy multi-course tasting menu for lunch or dinner during your stay.

How about spending a night or two in Barcelona on your way out or back?  We recommend W Hotel Barcelona...
