Cozy Suites at Can Carbo in Peralada

Eclectic decor?  Not easy to pull off.  However, Michael  Muldoon, owner of Can Carbo de les Olives (meaning house of the Carbo family), does it with flair at his country inn.

B and B in Girona - Catalunya - Can Carbo

Can Carbo’s beautiful yellow facade

Imagine this for your stay in Spain: your bedroom is an old cow barn made of stone, brick, and wooden beams. Decorated with Turkish rugs, fine linens, contemporary bedside lamps, a crystal chandler, and a large modern bathroom,  equals true country luxury for modern Spain. Each of the eight rooms is unique, spacious, and is around an interior courtyard.

Can Carbo is close to Peralada, a charming village, close to the Salvador Dalí Museum in Figures, and the Mediterranean Sea. The Peralada Wine and Annual Arts Festival boogies in August. All this and only one and one half hours from Barcelona.

Old stone walls at Can Carbo

This country house is hundreds of years old, Michael wasn’t quite sure just how many. Dogs pad about the courtyard and readily accompany guests on a bike ride (bikes free of charge) or meandering a country lane.

A highlight for me was the dining room on Sunday morning. White candles were casting a soft glow on the stone walls. Dozens were on tables and lit on a large brass chandelier. Soft jazz and classical music played. Cheeses and food excellent. Michael knows how to do it right. I can’t wait to go back.

Get there:

Price: About 125 euros.
