Mas de Torrent
Located close to Begur and the beaches of the northern Costa Brava, around an hour from Girona, Mas de Torrent is an elegant countryside retreat. Part of the Relais & Chateaux group, the property is set in a converted 18th-century farmhouse with welcoming common spaces, extensive gardens and a three-floor spa complex. There is also a fine-dining restaurant offering both a tasting and à la carte menu designed by a Michelin-starred chef.
Rooms are found in the main farmhouse, around the central pool or nestled in the gardens, and all are tastefully decorated with high quality furnishings. No matter which area you stay in, each room offers a small private balcony or terrace with views of the gardens or surrounding countryside. As well as the main outdoor pool, there is also a large spa complete with an indoor pool, hammam, gym, sauna and treatment rooms.
For those looking to explore the surrounding countryside, the hotel has a selection of bikes available to borrow or, alternatively, reception can help you book a taxi to one of the nearby beaches.
Rooms are found either in the main farmhouse, down tree-lined paths near the pool, or in the lush gardens. The rooms in the main house are classic and traditional in design, while the pool and garden suites feature more contemporary decor. All rooms offer either a small balcony or terrace, while the pool suites each have private plunge pools. All the rooms provide satellite TV, air conditioning and complimentary minibar and Wi-Fi.
Mas de Torrent is surrounded by the rolling hills and medieval villages of the Catalan countryside, about an hour’s drive from Girona and a 20 minute drive from the beaches near Begur. The hotel has bikes available to borrow and you can cycle to the medieval village of Pals in around 20 minutes or alternatively, the hotel can help you with arranging a taxi.
Food and Drink
The fine dining restaurant at Mas de Torrent benefits from a Michelin-starred advisor, who has helped create a menu of Catalan standards using local, seasonal ingredients. In the summer, a second restaurant is opened by the pool for light lunches, though it serves the hotel’s excellent breakfast all year long.

The three-story masSPA offers a wide range of services to guests. Facilities include a heated indoor pool that leads onto an outdoor terrace, as well as a hammam with a steam room, sauna and hydrotherapy pools.

An elegant countryside retreat, we love the tranquil atmosphere on offer at Mas de Torrent and highly recommend it for those looking for a relaxing break.
