a hotel… Hostal Empúries

June 28, 2010

Have you ever read Tender is the night by F. Scott Fitzgerald? Well, when I picture those glamorous places where the american jet-set spent their summers on the beach, I think about Hostal Empúries. It was initially built to accommodate the archeologists that worked in the nearby excavations of Empúries, back in the beginning of the past century, and like in Scott Fitzgerald’s novels it gained its major splendour in the fifties. After being abandoned during several years, it lives now a second youth and delights its customers with wonderful views as it actually sits in the middle of a protected sand-dune area with some small beaches. So if you want to feel like the american jet-set, just drop by around seven, order a Martini Bianco and enjoy the sunset.

    This is a truly wonderful place for lunch or diner.

      Absolutely! The views from the terrace and even from the restaurant are very Mediterranean, with the sea, the pine trees… very nice!
