Luxury in the Catalonian countryside

The Catalonian countryside as well as its coast has so much to offer, and whether you´re looking for a long weekend away from Barcelona or a restful longer holiday from outside of Spain, this hotel is a beautiful secret allowing you total relaxation....

La Vella Farga

The Vella Farga hotel is luxurious so maybe best reserved for a special occasion. I thought my 40th was a good excuse to put my intensive instagram work to good use & after following this hotel for a while, the not-so-subtle hints to my husband finally worked! I can honestly say you will not be disappointed in any way, this hotel is just stunning & makes for such a relaxing break. I felt totally spoilt, & the incredible service starts with a warm welcome with a glass of cava & cakes as you check in.

I´ve always been attracted to the rustic stone style "masias" or Catalan country houses that have been carefully rennovated into hotels but not in an overly brash way, just tastefully done with delicate touches of elegance.  The Vella Farga is set in the middle of the countryside & takes just over 1.5 hrs to drive there from Barcelona. Surrounded by greenery, it feels so peaceful & completely lets you escape the mayhem & noise of the city to breathe in some fresh country air & be spoilt for a couple of days. 

The hotel´s interior design is incredible & the rooms are comfortable. If you want to go big, get the suite with the grand bathroom and views over the pool and countryside.  In the winter you´re half an hour´s drive from the slopes of a great ski resort, Port Del Compte. After a long day of skiing, (or usually 2 hours max for us!) head back to the hotel, where you can (in low peak time) enjoy access to the off-site spa all to yourself & return to a cosy open fire in your room & the thought of a delicious dinner and glass of wine. In the summer, enjoy lounging by the pool & bar and balmy dinners outside on the terrace. The same resort of Port del Compte offers Adventure parks and activities for kids and families in the summer.

The pretty, baroque town of Solsona is near & I recommend a trip to the Salt Mines & the hilltop medieval town of Cardona on the way back to Barcelona if you can make time.
