Maià de Montcal is a village located in the northeastern end of the region of La Garrotxa, in contact with the regions of Alt Empordà and Pla de l’Estany. La Garrotxa is one of the best-preserved volcanic areas of the Iberian Peninsula (Garrotxa Volcanic Zone Natural Park), full of charming villages and lush forests, such as the Fageda d’en Jordà, a beech forest.
A few kilometres from Maià de Montcal is the village of Besalú, which medieval elements are among the best preserved in Catalonia. Of particular note is the imposing Romanesque bridge over the river Fluvià and the entire Jewish quarter, especially the mikveh or ritual bathhouse, which, together with the one in Girona, is the only Jewish bathing area discovered to date on the Iberian Peninsula.
In Alt Empordà, to the north of the Costa Brava and on the border with France, you will find a variety of protected natural landscapes: the Aiguamolls de l’Empordà Natural Park, the Cap de Creus Natural Park, the Albera Natural Site of National Interest and the Bassegoda area.
The nearby region of Pla de l’Estany is closely linked to the lake of Banyoles, a natural system full of life, surrounded by wild birds, where walking, rowing, fishing and swimming are popular.
Can Traver de Besalú is located on the plain of Maià de Montcal, near Besalú, where the regions of La Garrotxa and Alt Empordà meet. It is the central farmhouse that gives its name to the area and has been declared a cultural asset of local interest. It has elements from the 13th century and follows the construction style of the large houses that in the 17th and 18th centuries experienced periods of prosperity.
The rural setting invites you to share in a privileged space, immersed in nature, silence, tranquillity and good nourishment for the body.
85 € person/day in a shared room with full board (from lunch on the first day to breakfast on the last).
The food is simple, healthy, vegetarian and balanced, prioritising seasonal and local products. In the dining room with communal tables, we serve ourselves as in a self-service restaurant. We are fed simply with a ceramic bowl and a boxwood spoon, all handmade by local artisans.
Please let the hotel know of any allergies, intolerance or special requirements, such as a specific diet or lactose or gluten-free products.
