Little Beach House BARCELONA, SPAIN

Little Beach House opened this summer in the old fishing village of Garraf, 20km south of Barcelona. Featuring Spanish and Catalan-influenced design, it features 17 bedrooms, a restaurant, a bar and a rooftop terrace. The geometric-patterned tiled rooftop garden overlooks the beach, while the mid-century inspired concrete bar has a green top, with green-white striped awnings and parasols shading the chairs and banquettes. The terrace also has a small Cowshed spa offering facial and body treatments. The bedrooms have red and white triangle-patterned tiled flooring, bespoke rugs, lamps made by a Barcelona ceramicist, and tapestry wall hangings by artist Maryanne Moodie.
