Las Moradas del Unicornio
This is different and quirky, that’s for sure! Even the name “the Dwellings of the Unicorn” is unusual. Incredible rooms too!
But there is something in the name. The unicorn as legend is a lover of beauty and an impressive thing to behold. A magical and mystical creation. And so is Las Moradas del Unicornio, to be quite honest, not only visually and decoratively, but also in terms of the taste buds. You can order a meal on request a day before and you should try at least this experience once.
A fusion of Navarran and Catalan cuisine, it is a delight. Olga Castells is not only a wonderdul host who warmly greets her guests, she's also a superb cook!
Of course, it also helps that the Las Moradas del Unicornio is located in Púbol, across the road from the Gala Dalí Castle, home to Salvador Dali and his wife gala and opens to the public. It boasts a garden with an outdoor pool, a large library and incredibly ornate rooms that must be seen to be believed (we’ll leave our photographs to do the talking on this one) and are spacious featuring tiled floors and wooden furniture. All come with private bathroom and there are various lounges and sofas throughout.
Getting there: Girona Airport is only some 45 minutes drive away. El Prat Airport (Barcelona) is a little further away and takes just over an hour. Renting a car is certainly recommended in order to make the most of the the so-called "Golden Triangle" (a number of small charming towns of the Middle Ages in Girona, of which Pubol is one).
