Day 1: Arrival at the Costa Brava

A representative of the tour company will pick you up at a specific hotel downtown Barcelona and drive you to our hotel located in one of the most exclusive beaches on the Costa Brava. Upon your arrival at the hotel by the sea, take time to settle in or start enjoying the wonderful white-washed and preserved fisherman village on the beach.

Enjoy the beach in front of the hotel, walk along the pristine seashore, take in the sun from the terrace or have a drink in the Mediterranean breeze.

Before dinner, guests will take an easy walk along the shore that offers breathtaking vistas along the way.

In the evening, guests will enjoy a welcome reception followed by a delicious dinner.

Days 2-3: Painting One of the Most Beautiful Villages on the Costa Brava

This “little fishing village” is a hidden gem among all other villages along the Northern Costa Brava. This village is made up of endless rocks, cliffs and extremely beautiful beaches.

The parish church lies in the center of the village and is surrounded by numerous small, windy alleys, which lead down to the beach and give this village its picturesque charm.

Day 4: Flowers, Coves and Sea Views at the Botanical Garden

Ten minutes up the road, lies The Jardi Botanic de Cap Roig. It is considered one of the most important botanical gardens in the Mediterranean.

The most characteristic plant species in the Mediterranean region mix with trees and plants from other continents are a must see and a must paint…

High above the bay, the garden offers stunning views towards the ocean.

In 1927, a Russian Colonel and his English wife began building a castle and a magnificent park. The garden runs down in terraces from the castle to the sea. These ornamental and extremely beautiful gardens contain over 1,000 species of plants and flowers from all over the world.

Day 5: Pals, a Unique Preserved Medieval Village

As you walk through the narrow village streets, next to the city walls, towers and churches, you will feel as though you have walked into a new time altogether.

The stone archways, cobblestone streets and wrought balconies adorned with flowers create a welcoming feel in this Romanesque village.

Day 6: The Surrealistic World of Salvador Dali

For guests who are interested, we will go to see the largest surrealistic object in the world created by Dalí, the Dalí Theatre-Museu in the town of Figueres, his birthplace.

You will step inside the surreal world of Salvador Dalí and find a museum like none other. Dalí wanted visitors to see his massive collection as a ‘whole’ work and therefore refused to have his works placed in chronological or subject order.

Inside is a world of fantasy mixed with architecture, paintings and sculptures. It’s a complete surrealistic experience.

Day 7: Magical Barcelona: Market, Gaudi’s Architecture and Tapas

Leaving the countryside for a more urban atmosphere, guests will be driven to Barcelona and settle into their accommodation in the center of town. 

Lunch: Free Time

You will have free time for lunch. Why not go to the Market of la Boqueria with its incredible contrast between colors and activity, an ideal place to discover why Mediterranean cuisine is internationally known due to its ingredients?

All of the best products from Catalonia in one place: fruit, vegetables, fish, seafood and the world-famous ham de Belota, the “pata negra.” 

Afternoon: Medieval and Gothic Quarter

On this guided tour, guests will walk through the ancient narrow streets of one of the best preserved medieval districts in Europe. Discover the secrets behind the stones of Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter.

You will learn about ancient and current traditions of Catalonia, about the differences between being Spanish and Catalan while discovering the stunning Gothic architecture of Barcelona’s most magical neighborhood. 

Evening: Dinner and Flamenco

In the evening, guests and hosts will have our farewell dinner together followed by a wonderful and unforgettable Flamenco show. Flamenco singers, dancers and guitar players will be offering a powerful staging and musical event.

Day 8: Departure

It is time to say Hasta Luego! But don’t worry – you’ll be back. We just know it!

You can choose to stay a few more days in Barcelona or fly home if you have to.

Peaceful Hotel in the Heart of Costa Brava

Your hosts have chosen this friendly and peaceful hotel located in the heart of the Costa Brava. Come and let yourself be carried away by emotions!

The hotel sits on bluffs overlooking the coves of a hidden preserved beach of the Costa Brava.

Besides magnificent views, the hotel grounds boast a shaded terrace and beautifully wooded gardens.

The village’s narrowing streets and picturesque fishermen’s cottages form an idyllic backdrop to the stunning Mediterranean coast.

Some rooms have a balcony with sea view (very few available so book early). Enjoy exceptional views of the white fishing village and the blue sea in a comfortable, intimate and relaxed atmosphere. All rooms have TV, satellite, air conditioning, heating, hairdryer and safety deposit box.
