Between the soaring Pyrenees and the Catalan coastline of the Costa Brava, sit the quaint honey-coloured villages and vineyards of the Empordà. This picturesque region is primarily known for two things – its historic wine production and being the birth place of the artist Salvador Dalí.

It is here, in this stunning area, just outside the town of Figueres, where the Dalí Theatre Museum is located, that you’ll find the Hotel Mas Bosch 1526. It sits in an enviable position, 20 kilometres from the Costa Brava’s picturesque coastline and just 55 minutes by high speed train from Barcelona.

Set in a graceful stone-covered 16th-century traditional farmhouse, this boutique hotel features unique elements such as Renaissance windows, stone carvings and floral reliefs on its façade, and even a castle-like defence tower.

Inside, the farmhouse has been completely renovated and modernised, whilst keeping the original features such as stone walls, central arches and wood-beamed ceilings. “With just 16 rooms, it offers a friendly and intimate atmosphere and plenty of space for relaxing,” says Eva Campos, director of the hotel. Each room is meticulously polished and cosy, offering stunning views over the surrounding fields, mountains or the Roses Bay beyond.

For further relaxation, the hotel even has its own spa and wellness area, infinity pool, wine bar and terrace bar for breakfast. There’s also a restaurant serving dishes made from fresh local produce. “And when you want to get out and explore, there’s the Dalí Theatre Museum to discover, and wineries just close by,” enthuses Campos.

A stay at Hotel Mas Bosch makes for the ideal boutique break for history, art and wine.
