Located right on the edge of the Garrotxa Volcanic Zone Natural Park, this charming rustic farmhouse is surrounded by cornfields and picturesque scenery. The farmhouse is entirely renovated and designed to create the most relaxing experience for families.

The stunning hilly landscape of the Garrotxa park is perfect for hiking or biking, including several shorter walks near the farmhouse that younger children can handle. The nearby town of Olot is a lovely place to discover typical Catalan cuisine and explore a traditional, quieter Catalonian town.

The farmhouse is family-run and Rosa,who has managed the place for the last twenty-five years, is a great resource for hikes, activities, and restaurants in the area. A buffet-style breakfast and communal dinner made from fresh, locally-sourced ingredients are included in your stay. During the dinner hours, Pau the babysitter keeps the little ones enchanted with stories, games and occasional nature walks, leaving the adults free to socialize with each other. Many guests return again and again, charmed by Rosa and the farm’s unique, laid-back atmosphere.

During the day, younger children can build castles in the sandpit, while more adventurous children might attempt to climb the big tree that shades the front of the property or feed the chickens and other farm animals found on the property. In the warmer months, the whole family can hop into the pool to cool down. Families can also book a tour to a nearby farm to see cows and learn how yogurt is made.

The rooms all have an en-suite bathroom, seating area, and heating, and are all equipped to accommodate families. The largest room can sleep up to two adults and four children. In the smaller rooms, guests can also request extra cots for children.

Activities for kids

At the farmhouse

Catalan Rural Escape Garden with The Little Voyager

The farmhouse itself is full of activities for kids to enjoy, including a zipline to ride, chicken and other animals to feed, a sand pit for smaller children, several swings, a swimming pool, and beautiful woods perfect for exploring.

 

The Pedra Tosca Park Walk

Catalan Rural Escape Hiking with The Little Voyager

This easy hike starts only ten minutes away the farmhouse, and is perfect for families with smaller children who get tired or cranky easily.

Mas Coromina

This nearby farm offers an educational experience for the whole family: learn about the cycles of farm life, walk through the fields, find out how the cows are milked and taste the fresh milk products.

Activities for adults

Bike Riding

Catalan Rural Escape Biking with The Little Voyager

Bike rentals are available close by the masia for adults and families who would like to head out and explore the Garrotxa Volcanic Zone Natural Park. Rosa can give advice on the best routes to follow for the most scenic views, adapted for all ages and fitness levels.

 

Explore Medieval Villages

There are several medieval villages in the Garrotxa Volcanic Natural Park area. Sant Joan les Fonts is the closest to the farmhouse and is only a short 15-minute drive away. Besalú, the best preserved of the medieval villages nearby, is 20-minutes from the farmhouse, and hosts a medieval festival every September.

 

Visit Banyoles

Banyoles is a beautiful town known for its lake, only 35 minutes away from the farmhouse. Explore the archeological museum or the Sant Esteve monastery, then head over to the lake for a forty-minute boat tour aboard the Tirona, an electric catamaran.

 

Hikes for adults in the Garrotxa

The Garrotxa Volcanic Natural Park is full of hiking and biking trails. If you are up for something more challenging, one of Spain’s famous “vías verdes,” old railroads that have been converted into 2,700 kilometres of hiking trails across the country, goes from Olot to Girona. One popular section of the trail is 23 kilometres long.

The Area

The farmhouse is located near the town of Olot, in the province of Girona. The town has several museums for visitors to discover, including the Garrotxa Museum, which showcases work from various artists from the region who lived between the XVIIIth and XXth centuries.

Olot is also known for its festivals, including the Spring Fair in May, the Sardana de Corpus in June, and the Festes de Tura in September.

The nearby Garrotxa Volcanic Zone Natural Park covers over 12,000 hectares and has about forty inactive volcanoes. Nearly 1,000 hectares of the Park are fully-protected natural preserves. The volcanic landscape is hilly and lush, covered with green forests interspersed with smaller towns such as Olot and Santa Pau.
