Beauty is found within

We’ve been announcing it for a while... At Villa Emilia we have ushered in the new decade with a fresh start. An interior renovation that portrays how we show ourselves to the outside world.

There are moments in life when you just feel like being surrounded by the best company and celebrating...

The Barcelona Marathon: a toast to perseverance

More than 17,000 people. 42 kilometres. The Barcelona Marathon, one of the most attractive in Europe due to its route full of culture and beauty, is increasing in popularity year by year. At Villa Emilia we like to be on the side of those who persevere each day, and a marathon is the ultimate challenge. From our humble abode we send the very best of energies to all the participants!

07 Feb 2020 09:34

Love is in the air

Maybe you’re not the kind of person who falls in love. Or maybe you are. Either way, February is the month of love and we believe that any excuse is a good one to celebrate. Because the world is crying out for it and at Villa Emilia we want to join the tide of passion.

07 Feb 2020 01:20

You still have time: plan your year!

The first month of the year has gone by and we’ve hardly noticed it. January has vanished in a flash and there are lots of companies taken by surprise by February that haven’t planned all their strategies. But second chances may be the best ones.

23 Jan 2020 18:41

The secret of artisan bread

There are few sensations as widespread throughout the world as that of enjoying, especially in the early morning, the crunch of freshly-baked bread with the authentic flavour provided by artisan ovens and the traditional production process of making the sourdough.

23 Dec 2019 18:26

We are beginning the decade with a festival of flavours

At Villa Emilia we’d like to make things easy for you; on 1st January we’ll open the doors of our Bistro to enable you to start off the year with a top-class menu and a day without rushing around. Because we believe that the first day of the year will to a large extent set the stage for the other 364 days.

From Amsterdam to London via Scandinavia

Imagine travelling to London and Amsterdam via Scandinavia, in one morning and without leaving Barcelona. Imagine returning home with a select collection of unique pieces made by hand by local artisans who dedicate the utmost care to every little thing they make.

Christmas with style: the flow between Villa Emilia and Introfusión

It was love at first sight for them. But far from it being a mere passing crush, their love story has lasted more than a decade. Every Christmas, Villa Emilia and Introfusión, the company responsible for the Christmas decorations at the hotel, renew their vows of mutual trust and admiration.

12 Nov 2019 10:56

Passion for cava

You have to go back in history as far as 1836 to discover when wine began to form part of the Forns Raventós family. Without interruption, since 1954, when they became Cava producers, the family have tended to each vintage with the utmost care. The sparkling experience of tasting it is provided at Villa Emilia’s tables.

11 Nov 2019 00:38

A date with Gin

Imagine the scene. A cosy environment in the heart of the city, with music that encourages good conversation. A glass of the finest gin and a delicacy for the mouth to savour. This is our suggestion for a meeting after work or at the weekend. This season, Villa Emilia’s bistro will make it easy to unwind.

09 Nov 2019 11:47

The chic touch of a Bistrot

Barcelona is full of hot spots for the best cuisine. But the number goes down when you specify the requirements for an ideal dinner: a chic setting, music that isn’t too shrill, market cuisine and fresh produce. If you also opt for the centre of Barcelona, we provide that little bit extra.

03 Nov 2019 11:34

November: the countdown begins

November is the countdown month. The upcoming Christmas holidays cause many companies to add up their annual results and get ready to celebrate an excellent year, and even if those results haven’t been quite as good as expected, it’s always a good idea to celebrate the hard work done.

48 Open House: Barcelona uncovered

We're not telling you anything you don’t already know: Barcelona is a city that doesn’t conceal its charms. Much of its fame is due to its culture, gastronomy and natural environment and, above all, its architectural and urban beauty. And it proudly displays the above beyond the city, in all its versions.

23 Oct 2019 07:19

Business dinners: beyond the professional field

Your daily work can generate healthy relationships, but it isn’t always easy to break down barriers to get to know the person who’s sharing the work with you.

23 Oct 2019 07:06

New season: brunch returns to Villa Emilia

It appears to have been the British who introduced the concept of “brunch” back in the late 1800s, a mixture of breakfast and lunch for stragglers who liked having a lie-in at the weekend and calmly enjoying a late breakfast or an early lunch.

22 Oct 2019 15:01

The news from Villa Emilia: we are upgrading, both inside and outside

We’re among those who believe that you have to change to keep on growing. And we’re excited to see how Villa Emilia has expanded and evolved over more than ten years.

Celebrate your best Sant Joan in La Terrassa

Also knows as "the night of the fire", Sant Joan's Eve is, for many people, the most magical event of the year.

But... Who is Emilia?

The Hotel Villa Emilia in Barcelona was founded in 2007 by Katja and Antoine, who were already running a small hotel in France.

Villa Emilia Bistrot, an example of honest cuisine

A lot has been said about honest cooking in recent years but there are still many people who don't know what this – once abstract - concept means. It is much simpler than it seems and, in fact, it is all about this, about simplicity.

Christmas in Barcelona: Cannelloni and twelve grapes

On special dates and occasions, such as Christmas and New Year's Eve, everyone loves to gather around a table full of delicious food to share and enjoy it with their loved ones. Gastronomy is a big part of most traditions and holidays, and this is of course the case for Christmas in Barcelona.

Things to do in Barcelona in autumn

There is a very popular opinion according to which autumn is the best time to visit the city, especially since there are fewer people and the climate, while not hot, is still quite pleasant. We will not affirm or deny this (partly because it really depends on the preferences of each one), but we will explain some of the many things you can do in the Catalan capital in this season of the year.

12 Sep 2018 16:00

Getaways from Barcelona

It is a fact that visiting Barcelona means visiting a city that will always offer something to do and something to see. But it's also possible that you want to go a little further during your stay and visit other cities, small towns or nearby natural areas, especially if you are here for several days or if you are not that much into big cities.

How to deal with post-vacation blues

Ah, the holidays... so longed for before they arrive and so hard to finish. We are already in the second half of August and it is likely that many of you have already returned from vacation or that you are about to do so.

Summer in Barcelona with Villa Emilia

Many people fall in love with Barcelona in any season of the year, but we must admit that summer in this city has a lot to offer: an endless list of things to do and places to visit.

Music with views in Villa Emilia

What could be better than enjoying some snacks with a drink in your hand on a beautiful terrace in Barcelona? Well, do this while listening to live music.

A fairy-tale Sant Jordi

A lot of great things start with a “once upon a time”, and this is also de case for the celebration of Sant Jordi in Catalonia (Saint George in English). Every April 23, from the biggest cities to the smallest towns are filled with roses, books and lovers, that stroll around in the search of the best present for their significant other, which tradition says it has to be a book and/or a rose.

19 Mar 2018 13:14

Easter in Barcelona with Villa Emilia

Easter is synonymous with spring holidays for many people, and visiting Barcelona in spring is a great option. The weather starts to improve and it is neither too hot nor too cold, which is quite nice if you have to walk around the city.

18 Jan 2018 08:13

Must Love Dogs

This is the name of a film but it's also a reality. Love for dogs and animals in general is a feature most pet owners look for when choosing a partner or even friends. But why not look for this when choosing a hotel too?
