We stayed here on night one of an 8 day walking holiday around the Cerdanya region. A very warm welcome from the owner and his wife, beers on the terrace before an excellent Catalan meal. The hotel was very quiet, in fact we were the only two there! Comfortable room, peaceful location and a good breakfast (with excellent picnic) before... More

This was our first night of a 7 day walking holiday in the Grand Cerdanya region of the Pyrenees. It was a short taxi ride from Puigcerda train station and set in a lovely little hamlet. We were warmly welcomed by the owner and shown to our room which although simple in style was absolutely fine. We arrived a bit... More

A friendly welcome awaits you here. Rooms are charming and comfortable. Dinner is good and the Catalan breakfast is not for the faint hearted - work up an appetite to do it justice. A picnic for our onward journey (walking) was delicious and imaginative. No simple sandwich but chicken in a sauce with pasta and a separate salad.

We spent three nights at this charming little hotel and had a wonderful time. The rooms was lovely and very comfortable and the bathroom also perfect. We had dinner at the hotel every night and were delighted with the quality and choice of food. The owners were both charming and nothing could have been too much trouble. When we had... More

The pros- clean, room was nice, location is quiet, breakfast was pretty good cons- service, decor, atmosphere The owner tried to charge us for a triple even though there were only 2 of us, because we slept in 2 beds (my mom and I) instead of one.

First of all, thank you for your review. In spite of the criticism, we first thank you for positively valuating food, cleanliness and quietness. As for the price of the room, we would like to remember you that you asked for a “double room” when you contacted us by e-mail. Since we had many rooms available those days we were... More

Our stay was one of the highlights of our month in Europe. It is a small 8 room Bed and Breakfast. It is designed to look like an older village, but everything inside is modern. The room was very nice with a large bath. I think it is mainly a winter ski resort. We were there in the summer and... More

The owners offer 8 en-suite rooms, along with a breakfast room at the upper floors, and an elegant, very intimate restaurant in the lower level of the house. The room we had was impeccable from all points of view. The three levels of the house are connected by an state-of-the-art elevator. The house is most tastefully decorated with Asian art... More
