When going for wine tastings in Priorat, you can stay in the region’s capital Falset, one of the “wine villages”, for example, Gratallops, Escaladei, or Poboleda, as well a in the scenic countryside.
Priorat is rapidly developing its hospitality industry. There are multiple accommodation options including hotels, winery stays, apartments, and rural casas.
Where to Stay in Falset?
The town of Falset , the capital of Priorat, could be a good base for exploring Priorat This quaint little town is surrounded by mountains and provides access to hotels, restaurants, supermarkets, and other services.
Falset is served by the Marçà-Falset train station, which is an approximately 5-10 minutes ride from the town.
If you come to Falset without a car, in order to visit wineries you will either need to hire a taxi or arrange a private Priorat wine tour.
If you drive to Falset, I recommend parking at one of the larger parking lots outside of the town walls, as the streets of old Falset looked too narrow to drive to me. This Falset parking lot was the closest to my hotel. there are at least two more parking lots for you to use.
Besides hotels and apartments in Falset, there are also several wonderful options just outside the town. See some suggestions of Priorat stays near Falset below.
