This place is truly special. Incredible scenery, beautifully restored old house and adjacent cottages, simply landscaped gardens with herbs, shrubs and trees; overall a peaceful, natural retreat. We love the focus here on the simple, natural, local, organic - low impact living (recycling, use of natural products, in house generated wind energy) and the environment. This is not your mainstream... More

I spend a week here for a writing retreat. It is set with a breathtaking view of mountain cliffs. We stayed in a cottage built from what were once stables. The accommodation was comfortable and the view beautiful. The indoor swimming pool was just a few steps away. The family who own L'Avenc provided excellent, friendly service. The original house...

We recenlty spent 5 days in one of the L'Avenc apartments. The apartments were very spacious, tastefully decorated and and very comfortable. We all loved the incredible indoor pool. Our hosts Belinda and Tammy were very gracious and helpfully in providing us local tips on walks, sights and restaurants. I really enjoyed reading A Castle in Spain by Matthew Parris... More

Previous reviews are not wrong, this place is very special and not to be missed. The family dream and fairy tale story is something out of a book, ( there is of course a real book about it all ) well worth reading all about it, and, if you are luck enough as we were, given the opportunity of seeing...

The hotel and cottage complex stands proudly atop a high mountain plateau. The views are extraordinary and the welcome and service is exemplary. Do stay here for peace, wildlife and some of the best walking there is.

Just returned from a one week stay in L'Avenc. We'd read all the details, looked at all the photographs but arrived absolutely stunned. No photographs can do justice to the landscape and accommodation. I agree with other reviewers but would like to add:- we stayed in a studio and were surprised at how spacious it was. I think it measured... More

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
