Cerdanya welcomes the visitor with a mosaic of unique villages, fields, meadows, forests, lakes and mountains. In one of them, in the small town of Bolvir, you will find Hotel Serras Torre del Remei. This fairytale house is a Catalan Art Nouveau mansion built in 1910 by Calixto Freixa, a disciple of Gaudí. Here, abandoning yourself to romanticism is a must, whether strolling among hundred-year-old sequoias, enjoying a balloon ride, doing mindfulness activities, playing golf, sampling the best regional produce, cycling or walking the paths and trails of the Cadí-Moixeró Natural Park. Of course, each couple will find their own ideal plan.
You will also find something similar at Ca n’Heras d’Adri, an impressive thousand-year-old farmhouse surrounded by greenery, forests, meadows, relaxation and silence in the Llémena valley, just 15 minutes from the city of Girona. This rural accommodation, eco resort and farm offers you a very special energy because its history is special. We encourage you to discover it as a couple while staying there, while walking, while cycling, while attending an al fresco concert of live music or a delicious gastronomic evening.
