Camí del Remei, 3, Bolvir, Catalonia, Spain
"When my husband asked me what I wanted to do for a rather sugnificant birthday, I did not hesitate - “dinner and an ivernight stay at the Torre del Remei please!”. As soon as you drive into the grounds of this spectacular, yet homely, hotel, you are transported to a different, more gentle, time. The grounds as you enter are dominated by sequoias which are old, elegant and dramatic. Then there are more gentle parts like the fruit orchard and pond. The pool sparkles and the birds and insects provide entertainment all day long. The rooms are Modernist in style - in keeping with how the wealthy industrialust, who built the Torre for his wife, designed it. Ours was calm, spacious, light and airy, with a luxurious bathroom and views to die for. We had a long, leisurely dinner, cared for by the attentive, caring staff. Everything was perfect! We needed to go for a walk after dinner (!) and again in the morning so that we could do justice to the most perfect breakfast which is offered to guests at the hotel. There was fresh, thick youghurt, juices of mango and coconut, a bread basket, Catalan “embotits” and delicious scrambled eggs with caviar. This hotel is a real gem. Stay for a weekend, ir book the whole place for a party - we might just do that!"
"We had the luxury of staying at Torre Del Remei in late May of this year, and we can't say enough good things about our experience. - The staff were incredibly gracious and helpful for everything from unloading our car, parking it (even kind enough to guide us to a spot where no pine sap would fall from a beautiful tree we saw), setting up our room, and giving a tour of the whole restored chateau. - The chateau itself is stunning; be sure to venture all the way to the steeple to have a 360 view of the property and surrounding countryside. - The property is superbly maintained, and we had a wonderful, relaxing walk through the grounds the morning we left. - Our room was massive, with a very well appointed shower/bath, relaxing space to read and dress, and an incredibly comfortable bed. It was also quite private as all rooms are well separate from the others. - The restaurant, where we had dinner and breakfast, was simply to die for - a separate review to be posted about it. Monsieur Boix and his staff could not have been more wonderful to us. If you are ever in this stretch of Catalonia, splurge to stay."
"Akthough the decoration of the place is a little bit old fashioned, the place is really nice and the food is excellent. With a reasonable price taking into account the place that we are talking about everything was fantastic, service very kind ( a little bit slow) but everything was delicious. Try the "lenguado con tofona i escamarlans" it's delicious! and the pear cake!"
