El Racó de Madremanya comprises two buildings: a renovated medieval townhouse, and a new building, linked by manicured lawns and two swimming pools. It's an ideal place to relax, but also as a base camp to explore the Empordà, a region that aspires to be the Catalan Tuscany. You'll need a car to visit the medieval villages and the Costa Brava (for stunning viewes, hike along the Camí de Ronda, a well kept path that hugs the cliffs and can take to the few undevelopped beaches and coves in the Costa Brava).
The hotel is exquisitely decorated and maintained, and the staff is friendly and helpful.
We had the purple room: a previous review noted some problems with it. The kitchen was moved to the main building, so noise and smell is no longer an issue. Linens were clean and fresh, but we concur that is is a bit dark.
We were lucky that, in early April, the weather was so lovely that we could dine al fresco and even swim in the pool.
