Niu de Sol is branded as a "rural" hotel. Well, it IS in a rural area, quiet, agricultural, vinyards, olive groves,, lemons, oranges, etc. The newly renovated, 100+ year old Farmers co-op is the first building you see upon entering the town. You are as likely to see tractors on the roads as autos, but the hotel in this farming village is anything but "rural". Niu de Sol is , in many ways, more sophisticated than most of the 5 stars I've seen in world capitols. That's a bold statement, but in terms of REAL guest comfort, atmosphere, design & general attention to detail, this is the real McCoy. Largely a creation of Merce, the tireless, friendly, owner, the hotel is perfectly located to explore the N.E. corner of Catalunia. Palau-Sav. is the like hub of a wheel whose spokes radiate out to the Costa Brava, Girona, Figueres, Cap Creus, Cadaques, Roses, & the Pyrenees foothills. I stumbled on it by just poking a finger at the map, just trying to centralize for a four day stay in the area. What & happily found, was a home base that turned into a real "home". There is no fitness center, indoor pool, or aroma therapy spa. Instead, It's clean, quiet, well laid out, the breakfast is 5 star, & the dinner, (must be planned ahead) is even better. the terrace & balconies offer pleasant views, the WiFi is free.(are you listening Marriot, Hilton, et al.?) & parking is 100 ft away, also free. Merce provides excellent advice about superb restaurants in & around the village & will try to provide virtually any other service her guests might need. I just lucked out with this hotel pick, it really was a stab in the dark, but I can't recommend it highly enough.
