Fantastic place to cycle, walk and generally enjoy the spectacular countryside. The hotel itself is small and cosy, with huge breakfasts included and lovely evening meals. The hosts speak English, Spanish, Catalan, etc and are enormously helpful with everything! I couldn’t recommend this hotel enough!
The hotel has only a few rooms, each carefully decorated with many modernist original features, and quirky light fittings. It was a perfect quiet trip away from the city.
It´s very centrally located to see the Garrotxa sights and we got plenty of tips from the hosts.
We only used the bar to make a vermouth and the attention is to say that apart from being a professional, it was generous when it comes to serving drinks and the quantities of tapas. The views are good and also the patio where they enjoyed taking vermouth is very welcoming.
