“We enjoyed it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

Extremely nice and pleasant stay suitable for someone looking more for an individual lodging with a personalised atmosphere than a packed 4/5* hotel. The family which runs the entire show on their own have approx. 6 large rooms and a restaurant (which is by itself very popular among locals). Must have a car and I would strongly recommend to use navigation and copy from their website the exact GPS location to find the exit from the main road (especially at night can be close to impossible without that). The final bit of the road is unpaved, but accessible for every car (we had Punto). With a car, there's heaps of day trips (Dali in Figueres and Portlligat, archeological sites and sunbathing in L'Escala, mediaval town of Castello d'Empuries or Monasterio St Pere de Rodes just to mention a few). On the other side, it is a quiet and relaxing place in the middle of nowhere, thus for someone looking for a night out in a town, drinking, and a party atmosphere I would recommend a different choice.

Room Tip: All the rooms are equal. They are just the same with the same view, and orientation.

I hosted a dinner at Fundacio L'Olivar for 65 people the night before a wedding in the area, and it couldn't have worked out better. The grounds are stunning, with beautiful views and sculptures dotting the area. And Enric, the owner/sculptor, and his family, were extraordinarily helpful and supremely competent in executing the event. On top of that, the food, wine, and service were excellent.

Truly a hidden gem that embodies the beatuy of this area of Spain.

It is a dynamic space where synergies are created and where, in addition to enjoying the interrelation of the sculptures with the surroundings, you can savor the local gastronomy, listen to good music and spend the night in the rooms.L’Olivar is, above all, a dream under construction based on the concept of living and creating in a rural environment with a great deal of character.We have 4 bright, pleasant, ground-floor rooms surrounded by greenery. They have extraordinary views of the majestic Canigó Mountain, the natural park of L’Albera and the sculpture garden.
