The grape outdoors


Bravo for Brava

It’s all about the grape juice at Hotel Peralada, where you can sip, sup and savour dozens of wines made right here on the storied Peralada Estate. Sample complex terroirs rich with aromatic Alt Empordà bouquets of pine, rosemary and eucalyptus and named in honour of such trademark features of the estate as the ivy-clad 14th-century castle’s Carmelite cloisters (Gran Claustro) and the resident nesting storks (Cigonyes). Worn out after an arduous day’s tasting, hit up the Wine Spa for a revitalising vinotherapy treatment, or head to the castle’s fine-dining restaurant for dinner and – yup, you guessed it – more excellent wine.

Our favourite rooms

Sweet, musky scents of jasmine drift on balmy breezes in Garden Suites, which come with substantial terraces and direct access to the hotel gardens and lake. The Garden Suites – Carmen, La Traviata, La Bohème, Otello, Turandot and Andrea Chénier – are all named after operas that have been performed at the annual summer Festival Perelada, hosted at the village's castle.


Open 9am to 9pm, the saltwater pool in the hotel gardens is a little slice of Catalonian nirvana. Grab a lounger on the terrace, surrounded by mature olive trees (including one gnarly old customer that’s been around some 500 years), and gaze out dreamily across gently undulating landscapes to the distant Pyrenees.


Stone arches and views of the outdoor pool and beyond lend light and character to the Wine Spa’s pool, Jacuzzi and sauna area. Downstairs, eight treatment rooms offer vinotherapy experiences using grape-seed oils that range from quick facials to epic 80-minute full-body pummelings. All guests can book 60-minute session at the Wine Spa water area.

Packing tips

Keen joggers (well, those keen enough to drag themselves from pool, spa or winery) will find much to enjoy in the relatively flat country lanes and lakeside paths that surround the hotel, so a pair of running shoes could come in handy. Visors are essential for sun-dazzled golfers who wish to avoid slicing every ball into the rough, although the pro shop has you covered should you forget yours.


The hotel’s 18-hole, par 71 golf course is 6,070 metres long and has a pitch-and-putt, pro shop and golf school. Golfers practising on the driving range provide the visual entertainment for gym bunnies working out on state-of-the-art treadmills inside.


Little Smiths are welcome at Hotel Peralada, but the facilities here – spa, golf course and wine estate – are mainly geared towards grown-ups so please check with staff for access times for little Smiths.

Food and Drink

Dress Code

Go golfer-chic in pastel lemons, powder blues and blushing pinks at the wine bar in the 19th, but vamp it up good and proper for Gothic evenings spent in shadows cast by the mediaeval castle restaurant’s flickering candelabra.

Hotel restaurant

Gourmands will be in clover at Hotel Peralada, thanks to its four (count ‘em) dining options. L’Olivera’s walls are clad in local art and its Empordà-inspired menu, designed by multiple Michelin star recipient Paco Pérez, is no less refined. Here’s where to fill your boots (and belly) with contemporary Catalonian favourites like Iberian ham, prawn-stuffed calamari, and cuttlefish cooked with Figueres onion, all washed down, of course, with fine homegrown Peralada wines.

The 19th is a casual spot for informal bar-style wining and dining and the Garden Bar is the perfect place for healthy snacks and an aperitif after a dip in the pool. 

Castell Peralada Restaurant inside 14th-century Peralada Castle (five minutes from the hotel) is anything but. Dripping with chandeliers and atmospheric candelabra, these fine-dining castle vaults sing with the scents of line-caught hake with saffron clams, Girona veal tenderloin, and honey, olive oil and orange-blossom ice-cream.


Hotel bar

The Nou Celler 1923 Wine Bar provides an unforgettable oenogastronomic experience par excellence (try saying that after your third glass of Gran Claustro). Pair Girona cheeses and cured meats with fine Peralada wines beneath the stone arches of this former vault, or enjoy in the evening sunshine overlooking the verdant gardens and vineyards

Last orders

The Castell Peralada Restaurant, Celler 1923 Wine Bar and 19th are all open until 10pm.

Room service

You can order from the room-service menu around the clock.

Carrer de Rocabertí S/N

Hotel Peralada basks in the balmy Mediterranean climes of Catalonia’s rural Alt Empordà region, between the fine sands of the Costa Brava to the east, the colourful mediaeval streets of Girona to the south, and the undulating Pyrenees in the north.


Girona Airport is 38 miles from the hotel, around 50 minutes’ drive. It’s just under two hours from Barcelona Airport.


The closest train station is at Figueres, seven miles from the hotel. Figueres is served by trains from Barcelona and Girona.


Hotel Peralada’s rural location means you’re likely going to want your own set of wheels. Cruise the Costa Brava’s Balearic bluffs, explore the wild landscapes of the Empordà Aiguamolls Natural Park and draw lazy tapas lunches out until dinner in any one of several charming mediaeval towns around Girona. Heck, you could even take a sunny coastal spin down to Barcelona for the day if the mood takes you. There’s ample free parking at the hotel, to boot.

Worth getting out of bed for

That huge expanse of greenery behind Hotel Peralada is no mere pasture, but a Costa Brava golf course par excellence, where swingers can play 18 holes before retiring to the 19th bar to compare score sheets over a fruity Peralada cab sauv or crisp cold cava. 

Indeed, the wine (and the winery that produces it) is the star of the show here, where you can opt for a basic tasting experience in the hotel’s Nou Celler 1923 bar or upgrade to a cheese masterclass (with paired wines, natch) from one of the estate’s resident sommeliers. Join a tasting tour that include visits to the winery and vineyards, or go full bells-and-whistles with the platinum experience: a guided tour of the 14th-century Peralada Castle that takes in its fine-art collection, Harry Potteresque library, stork-filled gardens, atmospheric cloisters and ancient wine vaults before winding up at the winery for a taste of some of the estate’s top – hic – wines.

On the off-chance that by, say, day three or four, you’ve run out of Alka-Seltzer and crave a few hours of self-imposed sobriety, strike out to explore the dreamlike Empordà landscapes that so inspired Salvador Dalí, then hit up the Figueres museum dedicated to his life and work. You’ll be unsurprised to learn, after laying eyes on the extraordinary egg-topped exterior of the Dalí Theatre and Museum, that this eye-popping edifice in the heart of Dalí’s hometown was designed by the man himself. Inside, the maestro’s mortal remains rest in a crypt beneath the theatre stage, alongside the largest collection of his work on the planet. Eyes peeled for surrealist masterpieces including Galatea of the Spheres, Soft Self-Portrait with Grilled Bacon, and Dalí’s legendary Mae West Lips Sofa installation.

It would be a ‘shame… shame… shame’ to miss an iconic Game of Thrones photo opportunity on the steps of Gothic Girona Cathedral while you’re in the region. Afterwards, scale the mediaeval city walls for sunset views across a sea of rust-red rooftops. Girona’s Jewish Quarter dates way back to the 12th century and is one of the best-preserved in Europe; seek out secret courtyards among its labyrinthine lanes to pause for a reviving rugelach and espresso. 

Many of the Costa Brava’s famously sandy beaches can be reached within a half-hour drive of Hotel Peralada. Discover the pine-fringed movie-star looks of Rostella Cove or head for the ever-popular bays at Cap Ras. Or opt for the relative seclusion of Garbet Beach, sandwiched neatly between the crystalline waters of the Mediterranean and the coastal vineyards responsible for some of the Peralada Estate’s most celebrated wines.

Local restaurants

Once you’ve clocked Hotel Peralada’s trio of excellent restaurants and battery of wine bars, you might well conclude that leaving the estate’s grounds is entirely unnecessary. After all, it’s not as if they’re about to run out of wine any time soon.

For those who absolutely must venture out in search of further regional treats, Restaurant La Muga, 10 minutes from the hotel, is a solid choice. It’s set in a century-old farmhouse, complete with stone arches, low, beamed ceilings and colourful stained-glass windows. Guests can expect a menu crammed with Catalonian favourites including Iberian ham, fried goats’ cheese, grilled rabbit and fresh figs with local honey and cream.

Set in the coastal village of Roses, Sumac takes its inspiration from influences as eclectic as the Middle East, the Tramontane winds that blow down from the mountains, and the works of Salvador Dalí. There’s nothing surreal about the food here though, where dishes include the likes of scallop ceviche, market-fresh fried fish and roast suckling pig, wagyu steaks from the Empordà, and deliciously sweet passionfruit ravioli. A long list of wines (including a few from the Peralada Estate, natch) rounds out the experience.

Local bars

Peralada is wine country and, again, you’re already in the best place to take full advantage. However, should you find yourself hankering for a cocktail or cold beer along the way, Girona is likely to be your best bet.

Hit up El Doll, a popular little cervecería where punters pull their own pints. Simply buy a swipe card at the bar and while away the evening sampling fine local craft beers straight from the silver taps at each table. A selection of tapas, specially selected to complement the resident beers, helps soak it all up when the novelty of pouring your own drinks leads to accidental overindulgence.

Old town stalwart La Malabarista is heroically and unswervingly dedicated to the pleasures of vermouth, with well over 20 varieties of this Catalonian staple – including a few from the Empordà – available inside its tiny backstreet bar. Drink yours neat with a side of olives and cheese cubes, or mix it up with a negroni, Manhattan or ‘vermujito’ cocktail.

Anonymous review

Every hotel featured is visited personally by members of our team, given the Smith seal of approval, and then anonymously reviewed. As soon as our reviewers have returned from this winery in the Catalonian countryside and unpacked their stash of fine Peralada Estate vino, a full account of their boozy Costa Brava break will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick peek inside Hotel Peralada…

Golf buggies whizz round the foliage-festooned roundabout in front of Hotel Peralada’s vaulted main entrance, their space-age buzz and whirr belying this storied estate’s epic history – its wines, like its emblematic turreted castle, have been around since the Middle Ages. Wine is the hotel’s lifeblood, a fact represented everywhere from the collection of vintages on display in the lobby to the wall of bottles that separates the second-floor library room from L’Olivera restaurant and the welcome glass of chilled cava that puts pep back into the step of travel-weary new arrivals.

Sample the estate’s finest in the Nou Celler 1923 wine bar, where guided tasting sessions pair fine Peralada wines with local cheeses and charcuterie, or enjoy a casual glass in the 19th, where views of golfers fluffing easy shots provide a gentle reminder that drinking and driving don’t mix.
