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.


Highlights from my walk.

Sa Vista – Costa Brava – Charming Villas

Costa Brava’s Luxury at it’s Finest… Sa Vista by Charming Villas is the perfect setting for an intimate ceremony… With a backdrop of the Village and Mediterranean Sea this beautiful villa will leave you with lasting memories. Equipped with 8 bedrooms, 8 baths, opening kitchen with a breakfast area, a piano and a number amazing views -windows everywhere you turn. There’s so many amenities and views, I think I found a new highlight every hour while there.

Take a look at Sa Vista – Costa Brava – Charming Villas from my point of view (Disclaimer -I LOVE BODIES OF WATER AND THE VIEW THAT COMES WITH THEM- you will see a lot of what I love in the following images *_*)

Mas Tallaferro – Besalu – Charming Villas

This is absolutely the most amazing place settled in such a small pace. It has charm, beauty and hospitality like no other. If you love outdoor weddings and events as much as I do this gem is the perfect setting.

As you drive up the stoned driveway you might scratch your head wondering if you’ve pulled up to the wrong address. Oh but wait until you get behind the gigantic doors…. love awaits!!


This place is a chef’s dream -equipped with a huge state of the art kitchen with a dining room fit for the Brady Bunch, the Cosby Family and guest! There’s an elevator (which again is a surprise) to take you to one of the 12 rooms each equipped with full baths, flat screen tv and comfortable beds. The highlight of the Villa is the backyard! The best way that I can describe it would be a 3-D garden escape with an amazing view of Besalu. You cannot stay here and not host something in the yard.. I’m so glad we did. Besula ย in my opinion is the best village in Catalonia and Mas Tallaferro is the best place to lodge while there.

If I could have bottled this little village up and brought it back to the states I would have. While there I envisioned hosting a wedding or event in the yard and seeing the guest stroll through the village enjoying the ambience, charm and FOOD. So yes I’m available if you need a coordinator to travel with you to Besalu… (smile)ย ๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’‹

Richard and Sara didnโ€™t cut any corners in hosting us during our trip. From private tours of the Dalรญ museum, Jewish Quarters, Roman age Cathedrals, Medieval Villages, Castles and Gothic Churches โ€“we were able to experience Catalonia in such a remarkable way. Fine dining was one of the many perks to say the least I had to go on a diet upon returnโ€ฆ Endless Potatoes, Bread, Olive oil and Wine were at a constant reach! I did not have one bad meal. Tours aside the highlights of the trip were the times we were at the various luxurious estates ran by Charming Villas. Each villa has itโ€™s own style and the scheduled activities were well suited in their own right. From wine tasting, to slumber parties by the fire to locals hosting Catalan dinners and Calcotadas.<which I am still drooling overโ€ฆ.those charcoaly (nope itโ€™s not a word) morsals were so delicious! The experience was so dirty and delicious!! < I am still in awe from the total experience and if you are looking to host a destinationโ€ฆโ€ฆ(make-up something itโ€™s totally worth it) you can have the same experience and moreโ€ฆ
