Excellent accommodation with great amenities. Very helpful owner. Highly recommend this apartment for short and long stays in Olot. Thanks
This is a very practical house. It was a great place for a family of 4 to stay. The bikes were very handy with a cycle trail easily accessible from the house. The table tennis in the cool basement was used by our kids every day. It is located on the edge of Olot- a 5min drive from a supermarket and a 20 min walk from the town centre with lots of places to eat. Also easy access to walking trails. Our only criticism would be that it needs a few more glasses and a bread knife!
I found this property (house) on the Garrotxa website after I gave up hope of finding a suitable, comfortable and affordable hotel for 5 people (3 adults and two children).
When I found "El Solell de l'Avia" I was gobsmacked. It had absolutely everything you could have wished for. It has 5 bikes for the kids and adults, a full size ping ping pong table in the garage, ample parking in front of the house as well as in the garage (if required), a kids play park in front of the house, an immensely long bike and walking path also right in front of the house (used to be a railway track). The list goes on....excellent beds, fully kitted kitchen, coffee maker (with coffee capsules included), toaster, microwave, washing machine, dishwasher, central heating, also had connection to WIFI (and it was excellent connectivity)... Everything is modern and in perfect condition.
You are a 15 minute stroll to the town center of Olot, and you are a short car trip to places like Besalu, Santa Pau, the Fajeda Forest, and the volcanic parks. I made the reservation directly on their website http://www.elsolelldelavia.com/#!lhabitatge/c1h9q, I contacted with the owner by email and she was great. Her service was very swift with great attention to detail, the owner was also very helpful with tips on how best to arrive. The owner was waiting for us on our arrival and explained everything really well.
What more would someone want from a great weekend away. For work and travel I have always stayed in hotels but, after this experience I will definitely stay more in private accommodation especially when traveling with my family. I have seen the light!!
Very affordable and great accommodation and ticked ALL the boxes for us.
Can highly recommend this place to families up to five people.
