This "Casa Rural" which mean rural hostel is really impressive. If you are looking for a 5 star hotel this is NOT your place. However if you are looking for a nice and close service , a relaxing place, this is the exactly place where you can find. The old style house, with amazing views and good location close to...

Not everyone likes it here, but we loved the way everything was either old or simple. Sanded wood floors are lovely underfoot, and rooms are big. Other bonuses are the wood fire, used to cook chicken steaks, and the self service coffee machine (and cake) available for guests all day. Views are great and the beds comfy if firm. The...

As another reviewer said before, this rural hotel is a disguised rip-off and I totally agree. I see that most people are enthused about it, but you have to be an overly romantic (if not slightly masochistic), in my opinion, to fall for this rustic nonsense. How about staying in a dump of a room with peeled off doors in...

A charming old farmhouse with some livestock and vegetable gardens on premise. Rustic clean facilities with nice views of the valley. Great for families, groups (reserve rooms far in advance for groups), or quiet getaways. A small pool and just 5 minutes from the town of Olot or 1:45 from Barcelona. Great for getaways. Staff is very accommodating. (This is...

Stayed here for 2 nights at the end of April following an 8 day walking route in Catalonia, staying previously at a variety (six in all) of hotel, inn, hostal and farmhouses. This was our poorest experience by far. It was cold - little or no heating, unlike all of the previous places we stayed in, coupled with uncomfortable furniture...

It does look delightful at first glance. Flowers and lovely old stone balconies. But it's the way its being run that spoils it. There is nowhere comfortable to sit on the ground floor. The chairs and table are not rustic, they are the oldest, cheapest broken down pieces of furniture which would be used as fuel for a fire in...

We stayed here for 2 nights in August and I wish I was still here! Ines the owner has transformed this century old mas into a spectacular home and guest house. It is minimalist, but on the right side confort. The rooms are spacious and each one has its own unique features and stunning views across the gardens and countryside....

Mas Gargantas is situated overlooking the beautiful La Pinya valley, which itself is ringed by extinct volcanoes. The building is a Casa Rural - that is, a distinctive farmhouse. The building itself is ancient, but all of the rooms have been stylishly fitted out in a modern style that, nevertheless befits the building itself. Because the building is ancient there...

The reception was warm and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Bedrooms were large and authentic in layout and decoration, the the look and feel of the whole establishment made us feel at home.

Quite a pretty place, charming and the staff were super-sweet. I was the only guest, so my dog and I got full run of the place :) Unfortunately, did not get to sample the reputedly excellent food, which I am sure I would have enjoyed. The pub down the road did a fine salad, and the walk there made it...
