Default Thread Title:  El Castell de Ciutat on "Travelers411"

Travel Expert Stephanie Abrams and the "Travelers411" Radio Show welcome Jaume Tapies, President and CEO of Relais & Chateaux and Co-Owner of El Castell de Ciutat, to hour 1 of the February 12, 2011 broadcast.

El Castell de Ciutat has 30 rooms, a spa, and, like every Relais & Chateaux member, good food. Although the resort is nestled in a valley in the Pyrenees, it's easy to reach from Spain's major cities.
