We stayed overnight at this hotel with two friends visiting Europe from Rhode Island. All four of us thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of this small and charming inn. We had booked both bed-and-breakfast and our evening meal in advance. As the sun went down, we sipped wine on the balcony terrace off one of the rooms. Dinner was delicious, with... More

We did not actually stay here but in the same building at the hotel Niui del Sol. We arrived after a long hot journey from London via Barcelona, and felt immediately relaxed and refreshed. Beautiful rooms, great food, very friendly management, fanatastic old villiage away from the hustle of the nearby Roses. We wanted to have dinner in our room... More

The comfortable and well decorated rooms, full of details will invite you to enjoy your stay and its exquisite cooking, made with devotion, will make you discover the well-known traditional gastronomy of this area. When you are here, you will see that the house is strategically placed, near the best beaches and 19 kilometers from the Dali­ Museum in Figueres as well as of Cadaquos; near Girona, the Garrotxa and many other interesting places. I will dedicate you time for advising you, the best restaurant or about the best route, for instance, towards the best creeks so that you can use the maximum your stay.
