We stayed 2 nights at La Sala de Camos in July. We could have stayed more for sure. The Hotel was amazing, a lovingly restored old church rectory about 30 km out of Girona. We drove to the hotel from the airport. The place was difficult to find, but others may do it better than us. The map on the website was helpful.
We were greeted at this very old building by Juan and Sandra our unbelievable hosts for our stay. Although we could not speak Spanish, every effort was made to help us understand things and somehow we got settled and fed a fantastic dinner in the dining hall of this building (very beautiful). The Hotel is a boutique type hotel, much more in every way than we expected. Decor and gardens were immaculately designed and maintained. There are 7 rooms and a games room as well as a nice pool area to relax (with a nice Spanish Beer). Free wireless internet in the rooms, teenagers happy!
The area is popular for cyclists either coming in from Europe or up for the weekend from Barcelona. They come for the good cycling terrain and the wonderful food and atmosphere at La Sala de Camos.
The evening dinner menu was translated by the hosts on a translator for us which was really helpful. We were able to get information and suggestions about attractions in the area. I can recommend the Miniature Museum in Besalu and the Dali Museum in Figueres as things to visit. You'd definitely need a car (or Bicycle) to get around.
This was a lucky find that we would recommend to anyone seeking some high quality rural hospitality.
