REST . MEDITATE . LEARN

Catch your breath between two valleys
Discover yourself again
On a beautiful estate

Right here in the Alta Garrotxa, a protected area in the Catalan Pyrenees, surrounded by rugged hills, forests, sparkling waters, and cows in flowery meadows, is the estate of Les Gavatxes. An excellent place to stay! One of the few places in Europe barely touched by the world of today. For a short or longer stay at Les Gavatxes you can leave your hectic life behind. Allow space and tranquility to take you, and let you come back to yourself. Your head slows down and your heart opens.
“Let your mind and your heart express themselves in peace,” is our motto for life at Les Gavatxes. In the silence and the vastness of the nature reserve is a different sense of time and rhythm. The seasons and weather are guides for your actions. Walk, meditate, relax, rooting in the soil, pruning rose bushes or chopping wood; everyone will come to feel a new zest for life.
