We spent 4 nights at El Raco; beautiful grounds, lovely quiet village; Ivan and all the staff always helpful, enjoyed wonderful breakfasts and simple but tasty dinners. Girona, just 20 minutes away, was an enchanting surprise. My daughter had a room in the main lodge (white room), looking into the main garden with a small terrace, very charming. My wife... More

We booked last minute without paying too much attention to either the property or the location. On both fronts we were delighted. The attention to detail throughout the hotel is impressive, The food is excellent and the setting tranquil and relaxing. All bound together by an excellent host and great staff. We'll be back.

We found out about this place via Instagram through someone who had been here. It was a bit hard to get here unless you have a car: we did take a bus but the driver didn't seem very amenable to taking us even though the bus station in Girona sold us the tickets. It ended up being sort of funny,... More

The hotel and grounds are lovely. Our trip was with a small guided group, and our guide did so much to help us that we hardly needed the hotel staff. It is definitely a privately run hotel with much personal attention. The rooms are all different and interestingly furnished. We had the beige suite, which is charming and has a... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at El Raco de Madremanya. We needed a quiet holiday away from the crowds, and this certainly fitted the bill. There was ample space for everyone to relax by the two pools either in the sun or the shade. The food was tasty and well-presented (although it did take me a while to get used... More

What a great little charming town Madremanya is and Raco de Madremanya a great place to stay. Attention to every detail, wonderful staff, bedrooms and facilities. Evening dinners set under a lovely pergola with views of the gardens. So much food baked/made/prepared in their own kitchens made made breakfasts and dinners taste great. What a gem!
