In the heart of the Catalan Pyrenees, 80 kilometres from Girona, 100 kilometres from Barcelona, located in the centre of the Ripollès region in the town of Sant Joan de les Abadesses, we find El Reixac, nestled between the valleys of Núria and of Camprodon and the Garrotxa Volcanic Zone Natural Park.
This rural house to rent occupies a property dating back to the 14th century that has been fully restored and decorated to evoke the atmosphere of a bygone era, with a Provençal air that makes it quite unique. El Reixac’s singular interior design makes it a charming and cosy house, filled with little details which, together with its carefully restored furniture, have caught the attention of Spain’s leading interior design and décor magazines.
In total, El Reixac offers five rural accommodation options: Colomar, Galliner, Cabana, Mossos and Xalet which sleep 2/3, 4/5, 4/5, 6/7 and 6/8 people respectively.
The Mossos rooms to rent are on the upper floor of the farmhouse. The name comes from the former tradition of Catalan farmhouses providing upstairs rooms for the farmhands who worked the fields. This accommodation sleeps six/seven people, and has three double bedrooms, two with a double bed and one with twin beds, a living-dining room with table and chairs and two sofas in front of the television. There is also a wooden bench facing the fireplace. The kitchen is fully equipped with all the necessary small appliances and utensils for a comfortable stay. This house has two full bathrooms.
Outside there is a large multi-use space named the Cobert, which was designed as a mountain refuge. In this building there are barbecues, a kitchen with an oven, a washing machine and fridge for storing food. There are also board games, satellite television, a piano and the option of setting up a projector to watch films.
In addition to the Cobert, outside you will also find the swimming pool and sauna, a terrace with loungers, a children’s play area and a picnic area with several tables.
El Reixac offers authentic rural accommodation that is an ideal spot for relaxing, hiking and enjoying cultural tourism thanks to its strategic location: at the foot of the Headwaters of the Ter and Freser Rivers nature reserve, beside the ski resorts of Núria and Vallter 2000, close to the Garrotxa volcanic zone and within the triangle formed by the Romanesque monasteries of Ripoll, Sant Joan de les Abadesses and Camprodon, as well as being within easy reach of the many cultural and natural resources in the nearby towns.
