Hotels in Costa Brava + Mountains

A garden furnished with glass pyramids isn’t the first thing you’d expect to find at a lakeside Art Nouveau villa in the Spanish Pyrenees, 92 miles north of Barcelona. But then again, the latest property from the über-stylish Hospes hotel chain is full of surprises.

It isn’t easy to locate the Hostal Sa Rascassa, and that’s exactly the point—the hotel is hidden above Aiguafreda, a tiny seaside cove on Spain’s Costa Brava. The quiet, tree-shaded haven has five bright rooms with tiled floors and wood-framed beds.

A restaurant and hotel run by Lola Puig and her husband, Ferran Frigola. Four airy, affordable apartments and includes a breakfast of country bread with tomato.
