Barcelona……so cool!

I have a lot of catching up to do with my blog this week! So sorry!!!

Israel and I where in Barcelona meeting a friend for lunch and of course we arrived by 3 and had no reservations anywhere but decided to walk around. We where meeting our friend Marta in Plaça Catalunya and started going towards PALAU DE LA MUSICA. What a beautiful building!!! (Remember to allways look up in Barcelona…. you will see the most incredible architecture).

So we finally found this great small restaurant called El Bitxo (Carrer de Verdaguer i Callís, 9, 08003 Barcelona / 932 68 17 08 ) and had a fantastic lunch of delicious tapas and great wine!

After lunch we walked over to a sweet little café for a homemade desert at DOLÇ I SALAT their cakes are so delicious and the atmosphere is wonderful! I highly recommend it! It’s on career General Álvarez de Castro, 5-7 (Born).


Their’s a great kids book store right next door called ABRACADABRA they have kids books in english, french, dutch, etc… really nice!!!

Discovering enchanting hotels around the Costa Brava

I always find it fun to discover a new and charming hotel, it’s not always easy to find them when your planning a trip and you don’t know the area very well.
Here are a few hoteles I think are really wonderful around the Costa Brava.


A unique village filled with life, great restaurants, cafes, shops and surrounded with the most incredible coves of the Costa Brava, such as Aiguablava, Sa Riera, Sa Tuna or Aiguafreda. The Hotel Aigua Clara is located in the heart of  Begur.


If your looking for breathtaking views I highly recommend VINTAGE CAP SA SAL, also en Begur and HOSTAL EMPURIES  in l’Escala, both of these are fantastic hotels.




If your looking for a beautiful, quiet medieval village we recommend MADREMANYA, MONELLS, TORRENT all beautifull villages very near the beach and great restaurants, where you can relax and enjoy nature.


CAN BASSA offers houses to rent, it’s always easier if you have children to have your own place.






MAS DE TORRENT  a 5 star hotel, one a the most excluisve hotels you will find in all the Empordà.
