We stayed here one night in January 2010,en route from Cologne to Essaouira in Morocco,with our Labrador dog(whoever tried to travel through Spain with a dog knows it is not easy to find accomodation).
We found Mas Passamaner in Via Michelin and in Tripadvisor;the hotel website was not great,but interesting.As it turned out,the web appearance of this hotel and restaurant is a great undersell-the reality is miles ahead.We found friendly,discreet,helpful and courteous staff,anticipating needs in a thoughtful and non-intrusive way.The location in a very rural area(hazel nut groves)is good for walks(with or without dog),and provides a good antidote to a day on the Autovia.
The hotel is made up of an old manor house,with modern extensions housing spa,hotel rooms and restaurant.The extensions vary in their exterior appearance-restaurant and spa are rather spectacular,while the hotel parts could perhaps be described as timid.
As for interiors,everything in this establishment is spectacular,in an elegant,lovable and
natural way-think Bauhaus,Arts and Crafts,Art Deco and Spanish Jugend(Gaudi and Puig) with a very contemporary and personal interpretation.Beautiful marbles,granites,woods,leathers,textiles,colours-and always functional as well as stylish.
Add to this a great menu-our supper was very,very good,including an ecclectic and relevant wine list with reasonable prices-what more can you wish for?We slept
well in very comfortable beds with first class linen and pillows.
Waking up,showering with a view over the hazel nut groves(the shover had a window!)
we enjoyed the best breakfast we've ever had in Spain(where this particular meal normally is at best uninteresting,at worst painful)-a litre jug of fresh orange juice,a huge plate of jamon iberico,another one with various sausages as well as a third one with freshly cut kiwi,melon,pear and apple.And the bread was great too,and the coffee fragrant, creamy and strong(we enjoyed the coffee in the library,which thoughtfully is a smoking area).We highly recommend Mas Passamaner,and congratulate with thanks the owner who created this haven of understated good taste.
