Hostal Empuries-a nordic experience in the mediterranean
I went on the perfect getaway vacation before the start of high season this summer and stayed here for a night. I was amazed, exited and inspired with the spaces, the Nordic decoration, with that beach look, the old tile floors, the walls’ muted color, the vintage furniture and the chessboard floors. This Hostal (more a fancy boutique hotel to be fair) end up being the best place I’ve been so far in Spain, it’s only an hour away from Barcelona, it makes you feel like you are back in time – in a dreamy land far far away. Its style is amazing and the architecture fits organically with the natural environment which surrounds it. Hostal Empuries was built in the 1900 to lodge the archaeologists working in the Roman-Greek ruins found here. If you take a small walk along the Hostal’s coastline you will run into; ruins, coves and the pine trees. This place is magical. I came back here last weekend and took these photos to share with you. So far one of my favorite things about Spain.
