I was smiling when I arrived and I was smiling when I left. Hotels 'out of season' can be a pain and lack warmth. Not this one.
After an early flight to Barcelona and a picturesque, one hour drive north, I arrived at the hotel and was greeted by the owner, Albert. They have secure, gated parking, ideal if you are touring with your classic car.
The first thing I noticed was the peace and quiet this being a rural location.
After an informal check in I was shown to my room personally. This property is is full of rustic, period features and furniture and is charming. The accommodation is arranged over several levels and is not suited to those with mobility challenges.
My room was a very good size with a view across the pool and surrounding countryside. Bedroom and en suite bathroom were well appointed and very clean.
As the restaurant was closed for the evening, Albert arranged for an informal supper of local produce and wine. He then had this set out, complete with linen and glasses, by one of numerous open fireplaces.
I delayed my departure the next morning and enjoyed breakfast on the terrace by the pool.
For me, it's not often that a place encourages relaxation at this level. I'm not sure if it was the timing, the attention to detail or the handshake upon leaving that made this different from the mundane.
