Typical Catalan stone house in the open countryside with wonderful views of the Pyrenees. It has been refurbished with all modern facilities. There is a large and private garden (more than 3.000mt2) and also include a private swimming pool. The house and its grounds are rented as a whole property and it's suitable for groups of up to six people.

"Quelet" has belonged to our family for 4 generations. The main house was built in 1840 and been renovated and completely refurbished with all comfort and modern facilities, including: TV, Wi-Fi, dishwasher, microwave…

Each room has been repainted in its original colours and re-decorated with modern contemporary furniture, so as to create an authentic and comfortable atmosphere.

The kitchen has been completely refitted with new equipment, so as to present a functional and cosy space. During the winter months, time, people can huddle peacefully around the fireplace there.

The living room is connected directly to a spacious outdoor terrace (47 sq. m.) where you can enjoy pastoral views of the garden, swimming pool, and surrounding countryside.

The garden is about 3,000 sq. m. with a private swimming pool and a charming old outhouse adjoining the farmhouse. We can also offer you seasonal products from our Little vegetable garden

Also I would like to point out a newly renovated large function room located on the ground floor of the farmhouse, which has natural stone walls and an authentic Catalan farmhouse roof structure. It is a charming and special place, with excellent acoustics and a relaxed atmosphere, all at your disposal.

Our house is situated in the area of La Garrotxa, this have been declared a natural park in 1985 as this is the Peninsula's best example of volcanic landscape and one of the most significant in Europe.

About this location

30 / 75 KM. FROM HOME:

EAST:

BANYOLES: The spectacular lake.

GIRONA- Ask to see the old Jewish district, behind the cathedral.

FIGUERES- We recommend you visit the Dalí Museum, one of Catalonia's most popular tourist attractions.

BEACHES AND VILLAGES OF THE COAST: 60 minutes. Roses, L'Escala, Sant Pere Pescador…..

WEST:

CAMPRODON: The gateway to the Pyrenees. Tourist village. Nice to visit, you can see shops selling the famous cured sausages, the delicious fuet and llonganissa.

SETCASES: Near to the Wallter ski station. Fresh air and nice views.

VALL DE NURIA: located in the middle of the Pyrenees, the only way to access the valley is by the railway from Ribes de Freser.

BARCELONA:

The shortestroute to Barcelona (1:30 aprox.) from home is from Olot towards Vic through the new Barcons tunnels, and continuing on to Barcelona.

We recommend,

Medieval heart of the city, popularly known as the Gothic Quarter and the Ramblas, a popular walk, bustling with activity, located in the old town centre of Barcelona.

The Sagrada Familia church is the most important artwork projected by Antoni Gaudí .but also you can see in Passeig de Gràcia's Avenue some famous Gaudi buildings: Pedrera House and Batlló House, or The Park Güell.

If you like football you must visit the Camp Nou Stadium

Barcelona's Picasso's Museum

The Barcelona zoo

Olot

The area of La Garrotxa offers many opportunities for excursions: the Volcanic Zone Natural Park, Romanesque churches, charming old villages, excellent food, (2 local restaurants with Michelin stars), plus close proximity to the Costa Brava and the Pyrenees. Barcelona is about an hour and a half away from the house.

The distanceto Barcelona is about 120 km, while Girona, the Costa Brava coast, and the Pyrenees Mountains, are all easily reachable within about 50 km.

Olot is a bustling market town with over 30.000 inhabitants, strategically located in between the coast and the Pyrenees Mountains.

VALL D'EN BAS: Charming villages in a pretty valley. Beautiful views.

CASTELLFOLLIT DE LA ROCA: The village is dramatically set on top of a cliff.

ALTA GARROTXA: This area is perfect forlong distance trekking. There are beautiful mountains and valleys to see along the way, but be careful, as you will need4 or 5 hours to do the full itinerary, and it is necessary to follow the marked paths, preferably with map or guide. To get there, go to Montagut, a small village pastCastellfollit de la Roca. Park your car near Sadernes, 2/3 kms. fromMontagut. Be careful with the sun, and take sunglasses, water and a hat, if it's a hot day.

"a great location for a vacation with children"

We stayed in this house for a week with 3 kids 9, 7 & 3 and had a great time. The house is huge and can easily accommodate 8 and more. We especially enjoyed all of the outdoor games that were in the house for our use and the pool.
The house is completely equipped with everything you might need in a vacation of this kind and all is perfectly organized.
