Accommodation at Hotel Peralada Wine & Golf
The hotel hosts wine tastings at the Perelada Winery (wine has been made on this site since the Middle Ages), gastronomy masterclasses, and casino nights inside the 14th-century castle nearby, where you can also dine at their Michelin-star restaurant. As The Telegraphed reviewed it: "If you like your wines and enjoy a round of golf you’ll be in heaven here" and we couldn't agree more.
But if your taste for adventure takes you beyond the sprawling estate, the Alt Emporada region of Northern Costa Brava is also teaming with history, culture, and experiences waiting to be had. The Dalí Museum at Figueres is ten minute's drive; you are at the foothills of the Pyrenees, within thirty minutes of the beach, and surrounded by historical sites dating back to 550 BC. Closer to home, Peralada village has its own noteworthy sites.
The Carmelite Convent boasts a 14th-century gothic cloister and is home to an awe-inspiring library of over 100,000 books, including over 1,000 copies of “Don Quichote ” by the national poet Miguel de Cervantes in over 33 languages. It's part of a wider collection of 5,000 of Cervantes works housed here and acknowledged as one of the most important in the world.
If you're visiting during July and August, experiencing Peralada Festival is also an absolute must. The main events take place at the castle (once the seat of the medieval dynasty of the Viscounts of Perelada) with smaller venues around the village hosting classical recitals, chamber music, cabaret, jazz, and dance performances, while the auditorium, in the castle gardens, hosts the bigger opera concerts. Don't be surprised to see this usually peaceful town come alive during those months.
