The Experience

Pungent pine on the nose and the rocky shoreline – 40 metres away – send you spiralling down to a cove. What first strikes you as an ancient establishment was in fact built by an eccentric millionaire in 1916. Forget the unpacking, just make a beeline for that special little table and chairs on a pine-needled carpet and gaze out to sea. Scuba divers are in paradise, as are walkers. Unfold the maps on offer and head off from the front door – paths lead to major trails that follow the spectacular Costa Brava coastline. At the end of the day, drift up to five simple, pretty bedrooms in soothing tones; no fans, so fling open the windows to make the most of the breezes. The whole feel of this charming little restaurant with rooms will win you over; the food is the best of Catalan and, if you’re lucky, the prickly local rock fish, rascassa, will make its appearance at dinner. As light fades, easy music wafts through the bar and beyond – ‘chilled’ is the word. It’s Peaceful and quiet in low  but the pace hots up in July and August.

We had a wonderful time staying at Sa Rascassa with Oscar and his team. The location is wonderful - right on the water - and the rooms are well-kept with beautiful surrounding areas to explore. The restaurant is top quality and the seafood in particular is some of the best we have had; freshly caught that day!
