The Relais & Chateaux Mas de Torrent has been established in its 18th century Catalan farmhouse for about 25 years. It is one of the best hotels in the region, boasting idyllic surroundings and luxury accommodation, just an hour and a half from Barcelona.
Mas de Torrent offers the superlative service and excellent environment and amenities for which Relais & Chateaux are renowned. Inside the original building there are ten Masia Suite rooms individually named after flowers. Their interiors reflect the original period the property was built through antique decoration. Garden Suite rooms are located away from the main farmhouse, each with private terraces to soak up views of the manicured gardens and pool. For more privacy, however, you may wish to occupy one of the seven Naranjos Suites, each with a private pool and additional jacuzzi bathroom.
Cuisine at the hotel is offered from two Mediterranean restaurants and as with all Relais & Chateaux members they strive for the highest quality. Restaurant Mas de Torrent serves local Catalan food with a contemporary, gastronomic twist. The hotel's location near Spain's wine country means there is also a plentiful wine list of over 800 to choose from. If a less formal atmosphere in the summer is more to your liking, then visit the Restaurant Piscina, overlooking the pool and gardens, and serving a delicious selection of the freshest fish and seafood.
During your stay at The Relais & Chateaux Mas de Torrent there are a diverse range of activities on offer to keep you amused.

Why not explore the enchanting Catalan countryside on foot, hot air-balloon, horseback, quad bike, or on hybrid bikes supplied by the hotel. There is also another village with a couple of eateries just a 30-minute walk away if you fancy a change of scenery.
