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
