El Recés is a 15th century rural hotel, recently renovated to a high specification.

El Recés is situated in the medieval village of Corçà, between Girona & the coast. Part of the house is above the Portal Santa Maria, the old village East Gate and passageway.

Previously the house was owned by an artist who opened the ground floor as an art gallery each summer. Architect Josep Ferrés Marcó and stonemasons Cordon y Carrillo completed careful restoration of the house in 2003 for owners Julie Gillett and Jane Fernley.

Ensuite rooms have their own individual character, with terraces, balconies and patios. There is one suite & all are spacious enough for 'family' rooms.

Bathrooms have a contemporary design, combining rustic stone and marble with the highest specification fittings. The original well now houses a glass-bottomed shower.

The lounge and terraces are on the top floors, affording delightful views over the village and surrounding countryside. The lounge has English satellite TV and DVD facilities.

All rooms have:

  • Fridge
  • Breakfast area
  • Private bathroom
  • Tea & coffee facilities
  • Thermostatic heating

Corçà is perfectly located in the midst of all the golf courses and within 20 minutes of Girona City and the coast.

Barcelona is easily reached by train or car for day trips.

El Recés is open all year including Christmas & New Year.
