“A good find in Catalonia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

We (two adults, two small children) stayed here for two nights at the end of our Catalan holiday. It is not really a place you would want to bring your children, but the staff were very accommodating and friendly and other guests did not seem to mind their antics in the swimming pool. We stayed in the suite in the main building and they put two extra beds in the 'sitting area'. It was a beautiful room and was very spacious. The hotel is originally an old farm house that has been tastefully renovated into a boutique hotel. It really is very nice. The food and service were both excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would definitely recommend it. On the Saturday night we ate outside in the garden. The meal ('menu under the stars'), service and location were super. The food really was excellent and they accommodated the children also. The restaurant was closed on Sunday night so we ate in a restaurant in the village. The hotel is located on the edge of the village, however it is a small place so there are limited restaurants in which to eat.

This is a wonderful property! A beautiful old Catalan farm house outside which has been transformed into a modern (but respectful of the architecture) luxury hotel. It is just a few miles outside Vic, in Sant Julia de Vilatorta. It is a peaceful oasis in the country side, nestled near a sweet little village. It has great amenities, indoor pool, outdoor dining, restaurant. and bar area, beautiful rooms. Very romantic.
*Please note that this hotel is not in any sort of commerce area, within walking distance. It is more of a pleasure destination.

The abrupt woman at check in (owner?) does not seem to speak English, not expected, but my Spanish (not Catalan) was not much of a help either, or so she pretended. Vic and the surrounding area seems to be rather charmingly stuck in it's roots. But it is very manageable.

If you are traveling by car through the region, I strongly suggest you stop here for a night. Beautiful hotel. peaceful countryside, charming area.
Enjoy the drive up to Rupit, and don't miss Planta de Sau

We stayed there for a couple of days with our three year old. Despite this is not a hotel that caters for children the staff were very attentative and made our stay as confortable as possible. For example, they went out of their way to find us a babysitter in a very short notice (a few hrs!). The hotel is tastefully decorated and architecturally truly impressive. The food was also of the highest standards. Innovative cuisine but what surprised us was the large quantity. We both had steak with foie and we almost could not finish the plates! The only unfortunate thing about the hotel is that it is located in a residential area.. nothing wrong with the area (on the contrary, quite beautiful houses around) but it would have ideal to have such an impressive hotel located in the middle of the countryside or with views to the sea.. However, we were really amazed by the extremely high quality price ratio. It is really worth the stay !!!
