Arianella Bed & Breakfast Penedes

Torrelles de Foix, Barcelona
Bed & Breakfast

In wine-soaked Penedés, with pool, fire and mountain views, an authentic Catalan getaway. Warm hosts offer local wines and weekly dinners


4 beds


6 rooms


Rooms sleep 2 – 4


Sample a slice of Catalan life with Ariane and Rainer who count local winemakers among their friends; lovely wines can be sampled from the honesty bar. This 19th-century burnt-yellow farmhouse – a welcoming family home – sits in a quiet residential area. Great stone floors in the living room surround a huge sandstone pillar that glows in firelight during winter. Outside, mulberry trees grow and are harvested to make a delicious sweet sauce for ice cream. Fruity by name, charming by nature, rooms like ‘Melocotón’ shelter sweet wrought-iron four-poster beds and little sinks in the corner; some have a terrace for sitting out. Pool, mountains and vines fill the magnificent east-facing view (imagine the sunrises…) before it plunges toward Vall de Penedés; the self-catering apartment is a stable renovation with a fabulous terrace overlooking vineyards. Catalan specialities like fideuà and butifarra are enjoyed outside under the tree by candlelight once a week. A relaxed place run by relaxed people, where families can feel at home; popular, too, with those planning vineyard visits.

An incredible find. Perched high in Penedès region of Catalonia it's a beautiful place to stay with tranquil gardens, lovely rooms and an "honesty bar" cellar stocked with local organic and biodynamic wines. The hosts are charming and knowledgeable on where to eat, wine tour and walk. A hidden gem.

Tessa, Bristol

Fabulous B&B with loads of character. Owners delightful and lay on delicious breakfast and organised a trip to a vineyard for tasting. Perfect location for visiting Barcelona, Tarragona, monasteries and unspoilt beaches. Something for everyone. Relaxing by the pool and jacuzzi perfect for making holiday really special.

Marie-claire, Stratford-upon-avon

A really excellent place to stay. An atmospheric house with comfy bedrooms. Incredibly helpful owner that enable you to make the most of your stay. Delicious breakfasts and best of all a jacuzzi with a view!


We felt at home almost immediately. This B&B is relaxed and cosy - and a really good place to use as the base for visiting other parts of Penedes. Honesty bar, great breakfast and access to cooking in the kitchen: the concept that Rainer and Ariane have developed works really well!
