How could be your day

Some breaks you could enjoy from your boutique hotel in Catalonia


How could be your day at your boutique hotel?

You start with a rich and fresh breakfast in the courtyard and afterwards you read, chat or enjoy a dip into the swimming pool, enjoying the views over the vineyards from one of the terraces of Arianella boutique hotel.

… then you stroll off either by bicycle or 8 minutes by car to family run wineries named “Pares Balta”. An English speaking guide awaits you there and introduces you first to the vineyard, checking up on the grapes and vines. You learn about the process of wine and cava making and above all how much care and love the family puts into their products. To round the tour off, you will be offered to taste various bottles of Catalonian wine and cava. Light and breezy, you can make a little way to a good garden restaurant where you can discuss what you´ve learned in the shade of the palm trees.

… you go from Arianella boutique hotel 5 minutes by car uphill to find a wonderful viewpoint. From here, you enjoy uninterrupted views over the whole valley of Penedes with the blue line of the Mediterranean at the horizon. Having brought our picnic basket, you unfold your blanket in the shade of the trees and taste local hams, cheeses and of course a good bottle of Penedes wine.

… you walk for 30 minutes or you take the car down to the village. There, you follow the course of the current. Once you feel a little too warm, you can cool your feet in the fresh waters. You sit on the little wooden bridge, and let dangle your legs. Then you go again following the current to a picnic zone called “les Dous”. Here you find many springs and a little waterfall plunging into a little sea. Those waters are very refreshing, come and jump in!

… in September you can go give our neighbour a hand harvesting grapes. You will learn about the different varieties and in the end you have to taste the final product, of course! For a bigger group, our neighbour will prepare a BBQ in her porch, where you can eat and enjoy the wonderful views!
