Spain – Gerona
In the heart of Emporda, the hinterland of the Costa Brava, and just a few minutes from the beaches of Begur, this typical 18th-century Catalan farmhouse and its wonderful gardens have been welcoming stars from all over the world in search of discretion and tranquility for 30 years. But it needed renovation.
Now it’s done, thanks to the talent of Pilar-Garcia Nieto, the designer of the Unico Hotels group to which Mas de Torrent belongs, who has chosen a refined, Mediterranean-influenced style that matches the original beauty of the golden stone building: white and terracotta tones, delicate textiles, and noble materials, works of art, and local crafts interact under vaulted ceilings. This 5-star Relais & Châteaux hotel now boasts 39 suites scattered across the vast property (including maisonettes with private pools), the locavore cuisine of chef Ramon Freixa (twice Michelin-starred in Madrid), an exceptional cellar, a long solarium pool, and a Natura Bissé spa with an indoor pool.
An address to discover as soon as possible.
