L'Hostal de la Gavina

Pl. Roserar s/n, S'Agar¿, Catalonia, 17248, Spain

Opened in 1932 by farmer-turned-entrepreneur Josep Ensesa, the original hotel grew from a cluster of country villas into a sprawling complex of buildings of extraordinary splendor that have attracted celebrity guests from Orson Welles and Ava Gardner to Sean Connery. Guest rooms have marble floors, Oriental rugs, oak paneling, and ebony wardrobes inlaid with ivory. (The hotel employs artisans to restore and care for the museum-quality furniture.) Adolfo Florensa, the last architect to work on La Gavina, added the elegant seawater pool and terrace; the view of the Mediterranean from here is sublime.
