Our experience with Alicia and Jonathan at Catacurian was exceptional! From the moment we landed at the airport, Alicia's silver van swipes us off our feet and we on way to her lovely home. Each day started with a nice breakfast and a planned out morning, which included over the course of the 6 days: wineries, a monastary, an architectural walk with guide in Reus, a guided tour of Gaudi's museum, a visit to a market, wineries, olive oil tastings, one lunch at a tradicional tapas bar, and back to the house for lunch, a break from 3-6 and then preparation for dinner at 6:15. Cooking was not laborious - but a lot of fun with wine and appetizers throughout.
Always, wines paired with food. Great fun and stimulating. I loved the intimacy of the house and getting to know Alicia and her family. We can't wait to return!!
