A bit difficult to find, on a promontory above the village of Llafranc, near Palafrugell, this property has the sister-property 'Mas de Torrent' decoration touch...as in: close to perfect. Yes, the rooms are quite small. Yes, it is not cheap (around € 200/night for a double). No, there is no dedicated concierge and staff fluttering around. But if you want to stay in a historical converted convent with breathtaking - breathtaking, I repeat - views over the Med, in a superbly comfortable environment within 3 mns of great golf courses and in the middle of what must be one of the world's greatest concentration of outstanding country- style creative restaurants - then you hit it right on the head at El Far. We have stayed there 3 times over 3 years and would not go anywhere else, except maybe Mas de Torrent which is more deluxe but we prefer the quiet of El Far. Breakfast spectacular. The restaurant used to be a bit bland but apparently has improved. Go for dinner, though, to Can Climent at Avda 11 Setiembre in Begur for dinner - 20 mns drive but unforgettable.
