El Reixac II – La Cabana

"A unique setting with a Provençal air"


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.

This building was originally a haybarn for storing feed for the property’s animals. It has been converted into a house for four/five people, with two double bedrooms, one with a double bed and the other with twin beds plus an extra bed. The rooms are spacious and have parquet flooring and wooden beams in the ceiling, giving the rooms a cosy feel. The kitchen is in a rustic style and is fully equipped with the necessary appliances and utensils for a comfortable stay. The living-dining room is furnished with a large sofa in front of the fireplace and television. In this house there is a full bathroom.

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.
