L'Avenc is a real surprise. A family home that's become the nerve centre of a tranquil B&B "complex", an information centre for walkers and hikers, a spa retreat, all wrapped up in some truly spectacular views. The immediate impression of the cavernous underground parking and lift may put you in mind of a Bond villain's secret lair, but once you... More

Where to start? Nothing could have prepared us for the precipitous climb to the castle or for the vertiginous drops to the valleys below that rewarded us upon arrival. Tear yourself from the view, however, and turn to face the (man-made) beauty of l'Avenc itself. Comprised of the original castle (technically a fortified house) and its outhouses (now meticulously renovated... More

We did not expect such a truly breathtaking place to stay when we drove up from the beautiful village of Rupit. Wish we had been able to spend more time exploring the walks along the cliffs. We canoed on the Sau reservoir with our children who were fascinated by the sunken church and ate very well in Rupit and Tavertet.... More

We arrived in the area later on a Friday night in June a few weeks ago. We were fortunate enough to be able to stay in the last availability that evening. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit, and we would have stayed through the weekend, had there been available space. Unfortunately for us, all rooms/cottages were booked. The people were wonderfully accommodating... More

We spent 2 nights B & B at L'Avenc and wished we had been able to stay for a week. Beautifully renovated and extended property surrounded by glorious walking/cycling country. Located on a single track road between the villages of Tavertet and Rupit means there is little or no passing traffic which means it is incredibly quiet and serene. We... More

Having read Mattew Parris 'Castle in Spain several years ago I had a hankering to see the place if possible, partly because of the beautifully written book but also because I had spent 14 years building a house and therefore had a kindred spirit. The situation was spectacular, the accommodation superb and our hostess, Belinda, Matthews sister was delightful and... More

We took the whole of L'Avenc for 30 of us for 4 nights. We self-catered for dinner 3 nights and had a local cook recommended by them for one evening. The whole thing was a huge success. It is a magical place and the management team are charming and could not have been more helpful. We walked down to Rupit... More

L'Avenc is in a beautiful position. We cycled up from Girona, great end to a ride having a drink looking out across the amazing view. Rooms are smart and with good views. Also a swimming pool, jacuzzi and they serve a good breakfast. They were also very friendly and helpful. Probably the highlight of our trip, highly recommended.

I was recommended this by a colleague and I would have no hesitation to do the same! My family and I stayed in an apartment and we were incredibly impressed by the size and quality of the finish throughout, not to mention the stunning views over the hills and valley below! We particularly enjoyed watching the sunrise and sunset each... More

L'Avenc is a special place. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to enjoy spectacular natural scenery, tranquility and a place to unwind. The old house stands majestically restored and, alongside it, are warm and well designed rooms with magnificent views. And alongside that is a 25 meter swimming pool and jacuzzi which you can enjoy before or after... More
