With its own special
light and magnetic personality
Allow me to introduce myself:
I am the land of Salvador Dalí,
Josep Pla and the Roca brothers
The greatness of a region does not lie in its dimensions, but in the life that it contains. And few destinations in the world offer as many contrasts and flavours as the Costa Brava and Girona Pyrenees. A little slice of land with its own special light and a magnetic personality. The Pyrenees rolling carelessly down to the sea, ancestral forests, secluded coves and coastal footpaths. Ancient remains and contemporary geniuses: Dalí’s paintbrush, Pla’s pen, the Roca brothers’ table. Harmony between humans and nature infuses the surroundings: the north wind and wines with character, the magic of the gastronomy and a prized community of artisans, guardians of yesteryear who preserve the region’s deep-rooted identity. A miniature universe to discover through experiences and to enjoy exclusively with us: Unique Premium Club.
Your vision becomes panoramic; or rather, the senses fall apart before it. You see so much land and sea.
It’s a place to let your gaze wander.
where dreams come true
A beech forest (fageda in Catalan) nestled between dormant volcanoes; a river that begins in the Pyrenees and winds its way down to meet the Mediterranean; unspoilt beaches, towering islets and the wild mouth of the river Ter. A windswept headland, an almost lunar landscape, under the watchful eye of the Canigou mountain just across the border. Eternal light, a land with deep roots and the ineffable drive of its people.
Feel something real
Intense emotions accompany us throughout our lives, there’s no denying it. The body has a memory and is nourished by those small, yet important moments that move us: when catching sight of a particular landscape gives us goose pimples and we connect with something that cannot be put into words. A leisurely dinner, while the sun sets. Time seems to stand still and then, all of a sudden, it happens: the present moment is the only thing that matters, the only thing we truly have and that must be enjoyed without filters or reservation. Open your senses fully and let the Costa Brava and the Girona Pyrenees inoculate you with their unique energy. Only then can this land of ours work its magic and become a part of you, forever.
Sailing on a regular boat is not the same as being on a llaüt.
The Mediterranean is a sea between lands; a sea that is home to all.
The quaint former fishing village of Calella de Palafrugell has maintained all the charm of its seafaring past
Speeding over the water, the wind in your face, tousled hair and the roar of the sea.
The Mediterranean of the Empordà region, along its rocky coastlines, is usually cool and crystalline.
The coastal path runs all the way from Blanes to Portbou, allowing you to walk the length of the Costa Brava.
Strolling along paths and tracks, lose yourself to reach the sea.
Surrounded by fields of green wheat and the light that washes over the Empordà region, you can’t help but park by the side of the road and stop to enjoy the landscape
Let the hours pass around the table, unhurried, tasting the local produce among the vineyards; go out for a snowfall and anchor in a solitary cove; discover unspoilt spaces where the sea and the rock embrace with the permission of imposing pine trees. Eat sea urchins, freshly harvested, right on the beach. Rent a sports car and drive around Cap de Creus. Practice swinging on a charming route and walk among volcanoes in the Garrotxa. Feel the tramontana in your body. Relax in an old farmhouse that has been renovated into a hotel-SPA and dine in a brilliant restaurant where the product is everything. Laugh and be moved. Admire the meticulous work of the artisans and understand why there are things that can never disappear.

Where the Pyrenees and
the Mediterranean meet
The province of Girona is perfectly delimited by the Pyrenees to the north and the Mediterranean to the east. Its capital is located in a strategic midpoint, 100 kilometres from Barcelona and Perpignan. With its own airport, three important ports in Blanes, Palamós and Roses, and different roads leading in from France, Girona and its province are home to the Costa Brava and Eastern Pyrenees.
