Feel at home for real at Cal Ruget Biohotel.

In Penedes, there are not many hotels. Naturally, we had problems to find accommodation in Sant Sadurni d'Anoia or in Vila Franca who is also one of the larger villages in the region. Luckily we got a recommendation from a friend at Freixenet, who knows a couple who runs a rural hotel in the middle of the vineyards, overlooking the montain of Montserrat.

Cal Ruget Biohotell  is a great little family hotel run by Veronica, and Florian who are originally from Spain and Germany. They are the friendliest people I ever met and will do anything to make their guests feel welcome and at ease. One can not wish for anything better!

Veronica, and Florian has a wonderful garden where they grow all kinds of vegetables and fruits, including olives (of which they make their own fantastic olive oil), grapes, almonds, tomatoes, lettuce, peppers and much more.

Not only do they have their own vegetables, they also have great kitchen where they cook wonderful food, so there is no reason to go out in some restaurant. Rarely have I eaten so fresh and well prepared food. This great food combined with incredible wines from the region and of course cava, makes the stay here top notch!

Not only do you be treated with great food and drink, but you can also relax in the pool and cool off in while you admire the beautiful landscape of mountains and vineyards, since the hotel is located amidst the vineyards. But I do not know whether to call it a hotel, even though it is... since the coziness and friendliness here is quite different than you might expect in an ordinary hotel. It is almost like visiting friends. In addition, Veronica, and Florian are incredibly interested in wine and cava and can arrange winery visits wherever in the region you desire.

I can not talk warmly enough about Cal Ruget, for a nicer place I can not imagine! I have already booked another week in the spring when my husband and I will come back, of course to relax but also to do a lot of winery visits. Who needs charter and allinclusive when you have Cal Ruget Biohotel, with pool, sun, vines, fantastic food and unbelievable good wine every day? Moreover, it takes only 40 minutes to drive here from Barcelona and you are right in the heart of "cava country".

I wish all my friends a relaxing week with Veronica, and Florian, with interesting cava visits and nice food. If you want to go by yourself, you come with us this spring, for they have room for twenty people.
