Located in the hills in Sant Vicenç de Montalt, Can Mora de Dalt offers wonderful views of the Maresme Coast, 35km north of Barcelona. Set in a 15th century farmstead it has been in the same family for eighteen generations. Now a charming small hotel, the house is laid around a courtyard while the terraced Mediterranean garden with jasmine, orange, lemon and almond trees slopes down three levels to the swimming pool. Several beaches such as Sant Vicenç and Caldetas are just a five minutes’ drive away.

Each one comes with a flat-screen satellite TV, a safe and a telephone. Private bathroom have a hairdryer. The suites have great views of the village and the sea, while the quiet rooms and junior rooms (in the tower) overlook the courtyard or the mountains.
The swimming pool is surrounded by sun loungers. Inside, a reading room, games room and TV room await.
In August in the evenings, a restaurant and bar service, under the trees of the garden, is offered with a choice of gin and tonics and excellent options of local products from the market. The hotel is also happy to provide a picknick lunch. Nearby guest can find several Michelin starred restaurants. A typical Catalan breakfast is provided, with specialities such as good locally-made sausages and cold meats, and pa amb tomàquet, fresh bread rubbed with ripe tomato and drizzled with olive oil.
