Inside, the décor is traditional with exposed stone walls and wooden-beamed ceilings, and the bedrooms are spacious and elegantly decked out with timber floors, FRETTE linens, large windows to the views and tiled bathrooms. Some of the suites have their own outdoor space, be it a shady terrace or private garden. Inside here are also a number of cosy places to relax in such as the wine cellar, library or hammam and spa meaning that Mas de la Costa is a year-round hotel to visit, especially as the region receives hardly any rainfall.
Outside the gardens are landscaped with rocky designs that allow sprays of lavender, Mediterranean scrub and cypress trees to grow in between. The restaurant is housed in an adjoining stable where the culinary ethos is in line with the slow food revolution using fresh, local ingredients to create Spanish-inspired dishes. From here, it’s easy to explore the surroundings on foot or bike, enjoy wine tasting or discover medieval villages like Valderrobes, just three kilometres away. Come home for a dip in the outdoor pool, drinks at sunset then stargazing by night.
