We’re pretty obsessed with Catalonia (or Catalunya depending on who you’re speaking to)... we can’t quite put our finger on exactly why. Perhaps it’s the fierce pride and independent strength of the people, or the multitude of converging landscapes from mountains to beaches, or the intoxicating wine and food, or maybe just the old-fashioned fun of decoding the language especially if you’re a Spanish-speaker. Whatever it is, it continues to lure us back. It’s easy to get drawn in by Barcelona’s wonders, but on your next visit, consider moving a bit into the interior and discovering two unique boutique hotels within the EVADE portfolio that both define a true Catalunyan experience.

Serious wine enthusiast? Well then you’ll find a home in Can Bonsastre Wine Resort- famous for their Winestyle and location in a most perfect vineyard paradise. Your only job here is to allow them to help you lavish in the true essence of wine culture, which is easy in this 16-th century country estate-turned-luxe-boutique, the near-perfect weather, a restaurant devoted to overwhelming the five senses, and wine activities a-plenty. http://www.canbonastre.com/
