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 swimming pool 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 riding tours 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).
