Coffee + Dessert + Besalu = BLISS

Strolling through the village of Besalu, Catalonia, Spain. I stumbled on a small cafe serving up bold coffee and divine deserts. The barista spent a few moments answering my questions about the cafe, the village and just everyday life in Besalu before recommending the coffee of the day and the fresh decadent dessert. The coffee was so smooth and nutty. Al Gra was worth the stop during my walk.

Mas Perafita Vineyard – Martin Faixo Cellar

I’m going to start this post off by telling you how amazing Mas Perafita vineyard is. Then I’m going to tell you the wine variety provided by Martin Faixo Cellar is the most amazing wine that I’ve ever taste.. I’m not a drinker but I love “wine tastings”.

Mas Perafita is a beautiful charm in the region of Cap de Crues.. It was winding road trip uphill to get there that was was every turn. The vineyard is a gem! I had one wow moment after the other. Walking into the wine cellar with enormous shiny tanks, walking through the vineyard…. Beautiful…

Okay so now that I’ve gotten that out of the way….. I consider myself an extreme hostess, I live to entertain with love. Well across the pond I met my match.. It was absolutely the most loving encounter ever (it was so loving they wanted me to move in). The owners of the vineyard hosted a family style lunch that would have pleased the meanest person on earth. They would have left smiling and FULL…. I have to get back soon, I consider them family. They are now my family.. Planning a Cadaques trip? Please pay them a visit… www.saperafita.com

Heaven on earth is tucked away right between the Pyrenees & Mediterranean Sea

I will forever be grateful to Richard of Charming Villas for going off the track, up a winding road to everything I never dreamed of -but the best way I could explain it would be “it was a dream come true”

I was so amazed with this breathtaking panoramic view of Costa Bravo everything from a historic lighthouse, to disappearing mountains, endless body of water ….all while sipping on a hot cup of coffee, enjoying good people, good conversation, never-ending photo-shoots and eating a traditional Cadaques pastry Taps De Cadaques (courtesy of the mayor) –they melt in your mouth so yummy you have to pull yourself away from them… Which is exactly what they had to do to me…. Pull and drag me to the car.. I could have stayed right there the remainder of the trip. All I needed was a tree house and a portable coffee mug… By vehicle it’s a winding roller coaster of a ride to get there but so worth it!!! I’m planning my trip back in my head as I type.. The moment was so surreal that I can’t remember what the coffee taste like but it was the best cup of coffee I’ve ever had in my life!!
