The Deluxe Gourmet Journey lasts but a moment yet as you travel through centuries old olive groves, you are transported back in time to a garden paradise of medieval Moorish and Christian kings. The fragrance of orange blossoms fills the air; the sound of fountains nourishes the soul; the nectar of the gods is honey on your lips and the cuisine of Ferrán Adrià is a midsummer-night’s dream that will keep you dreaming forever. A mélange of imagination, of art, of the past and of the future. The Hacienda Benazuza is all of this and much, much more. An ancient country estate that has been here for a thousand years waiting for you to make it your home, even if just for a few days. We have been planning for your visit for a long time and as a guest, you will be pampered and treated like royalty in one of the most exclusive and luxurious five star hotels in the world.

We invite you to enjoy a selection of the best original recipes of Ferrán Adrià in "La Alquería" Restaurant (two Michelin Stars) prepared by chef Rafael Morales, under the management of the "El Bulli" team. You will begin each day with the "Benazuza Breakfast", quite possibly "…the best breakfast in the world", a festival of flavours, textures and colours. Then comes dessert. After breakfast, you ask? Why yes. The chef becomes your personal professor as you begin your studies of the Philosophy and Innovative "Nueva Cuisine" of Ferrán Adrià and our expert bilingual culinary and cultural guide makes sure you savour every delicious bite with simultaneous translations.

A stroll through the gardens, a swim in the pool. Time to relax and enjoy the peaceful art of living that characterizes the Mediterranean as our chef prepares a tasting menu of The Best of el Bulli Cuisine. Our gourmet tour continues in the Sherry Region as we explore two historic and beautiful wineries, Barbadillo in Sanlúcar de Barrameda and Domecq in Jerez de la Frontera. During private tours the mystery of sherry wines, brandies and vinegars will unfold before your eyes and you will sample a very special selection along with cured Ibérian ham.

During this deluxe tour, Rafael Morales will become your personal cooking professor. A dream for gourmets. The best of Ferrán Adrià with Rafael Morales, Spanish Wines & Cuisine, gourmet tastings and private winery tours. A paradise waiting to be discovered.For Private Groups, our Custom Gourmet Tours offer you the opportunity to tailor every aspect of our deluxe tours to meet your special needs and interests. You can select from a variety of travel & leisure options and we'll work with you to create the perfect tour.
