La Garriga de Castelladral is a perfect little Chic Retreat just one hour's drive from Barcelona. After a total restoration project this small medieval building dating back to the 15th-century has been transformed into a little paradise surrounded by nature. This new small boutique hotel is family-run and exquisitely so, with everyone involved in some way or other. The restoration was sympathetic to the origins of the house and local material was used wherever possible and eco-friendly heating, electricity and water installed throughout ensuing a clean and friendly environment with renewable energy. The theme continues througouth the 14 rooms where fragrant organic and natural soaps are used.
Enjoy the stunning new swimmingpool which sits between the house and the pond surrounded amidst nature. Read a book, listen to the birds and marvel at the views across Monteserrat mountain.
The Wellness Spa La Garriga is a spacious place, with warm colors, stone walls and where you can breathe the history of wine. The Wellness Spa has a private use, to be able to enjoy it exclusively with your couple or family. Book in advance is needed. Relax at the end of the day with one of their treatments: de-stress massage, hydrating facial or stone massage.
Horse ridingtours are organized from the hotel as well as wine tasting and olive oil tasting activites (from the unique corbella and verdal olives from our region).
There are some stunning walks around La Garriga de Castelladral as well as some challening bike routes for those looking for some fresh air and beautiful landscape.
Nearby attractions include Cardona: the salt mountain, the Castle and the Colegiata of St. Vicenç, Suria: the Castle and the old part of the village.
The restaurant is open for dinner and serves contemporary Mediterranean dishes based on the best regional ingredients available. Most of the vegetables are organic and come directly from the garden and have an intense smell and flavour - how all vegetables should be! Dinner should be booked in advanced.
For lunch time the hotel offers a picnic service which should be booked before 11:30am.
Do not leave La Garriga de Castelladral without trying the cakes of Grandma María particularly her sponge cake with pine nuts..delicious any time of the day!
La Garriga de Castelladral has 14 charming rooms (8 in the main house and 6 on the Olives area). Each room has stunning views of the surrounding countryside and Montserrat Mountain. The natural stone, colours and fabric complement the history of the house and the soundproofing and light creates a really tranquil and warm atmosphere. A neutral palette has been used throughout with splashes of colour here and there.
All the rooms have been build with the work of local artisans who still use some of the oldest methods of construction.
Roca Family has personally decorated and designed all of the rooms, giving a personal touch to each of them.
