We only stayed one night at this great little hotel but really wishes we'd had longer there. The house is a beautiful Art Nouveau mansion which is Luiz's family home. He does the cooking (tasty traditional fare very reasonably priced) while his wife Sophie looks after the guests and is very helpful with regard to the interesting sites of the Garrotxa area (full of dormant volcanoes and spectacular scenery). Bedrooms are stylish and comfortable and the house and garden are extremely relaxing.
