Savor the good life in Catalonia on a delicious road trip that whisks you away from the buzz of Barcelona into a gorgeous Mediterranean landscape known as L'Empordà. All around you are the farms, fishing villages, olive groves, and vineyards that inspire the region's famously good cooking. Live it all from two privileged vantage points, staying first in an arty town by the sea, then inland in a stylishly restored villa. We line up some unforgettably fab food and wine pleasures for you, add a little guiding so you won't miss the best hidden treasures, then let you laze or do more.

  • 2 nights in a sweet small hotel, overlooking the sea in Cadaqués
  • 2 nights in a villa-hotel in a medieval hilltown, rustic-chic
  • A private Catalan cooking class with the villa chef, featuring superb local ingredients
  • A guided morning stroll in historic Girona
  • Visit and taste with the proprietress at an award-winning biodynamic winery
  • All breakfasts, two dinners—including one after your cooking class
  • Personalized route plans (or upgrade to a car service, if you wish). With suggestions on more to see and sample along the way, and help with restaurant reservations when needed
