If you want to enjoy a nice and quiet stay in Catalunya, then we advise you La Rovirota-El Moli de la Plana in Riudaura. We stayed 2 weeks in La Cabanya: a top-rural gite for 2 persons, well restaured and with good comfort, a swimming pool (in a veranda) in a quiet valley with 5 authentic guesthouses, surrounded by woods. We enjoyed our walking trops in the vulcanic La Garrotxa and the Alta Garroxta with peaks up to +/- 1300 m. Also the visits of mediavel villages (Santa Pau, Bésalu) and the historical centers of Olot an Girone were very intresting. We were very well received by the sympatic guestwife Sira, who gave us also usefull tips.
We absolutely loved the Mill. The setting was superb; the perfect place to spend a week with our children and grandchildren. One can get away from it all in this magical spot. We began every day with an alfresco, late breakfast on the terrace or the third floor crow's nest with mountain views and cocks crowing. The combination of the pool and stream gave endless hours of pleasure and walks into charming Santa Feliu for dinner were magical. The cuisine of the region is the best we have found in Spain and we only just began to explore the over 700 km of trails in Garroxta. We loved Olot, Santa Pau and environs right outside our doorstep and we are already planning a return visit.
One small negative was the bed situation-we are used to queen or king beds and found the double beds a wee bit small- if you don't mind doubles they were fine but it would be great to at least have queen sized beds in 2 of the rooms.
