There are several options for a weekend of R&R in around this part of Catalunya. This was a gem. We had a huge suite room on the top floor of the main building complete with terrace. The bed was ultra comfortable and the room and bathroom full of all the essentials. The WIFI was of a good speed and free. At night it was silent. The huge thick walls of this aged masia meant we had a very private and tranquil weekend. There is a large pool and sun terrace but not quite the time of the year. They have a massage/treatment facility on site and we understand are planning to extend to a spa. This was expensive but we were truly pampered. A lovely experience by a lovely staff.

My husband I spent a few days before Christmas in Barcelona at the enchanting Vella Farga. We arrived after dark to the twinkling lights and wood burning fires and were welcomed with a bottle of cava in front of the fire. We checked into our delightful rooms (each room a bit different and each exquisitely appointed with art, modern fixtures and luxurious bedding). We stayed three nights and ate each evening in the hotel restaurant. Each meal was different and completely gourmet and exciting with excellent wines to pair. We had all had a busy December and being able to relax and unwind in this wonderful getaway was just what we all needed before the holiday. There are wonderful areas inside and out to hang out and a wonderful pool. It was fabulous to walk off the wonderful meals in the pristine woodland. We can't wait to come back in June!

Stayed for 2 days with my children.
The room was big with great balcony with view to the pool & the forest.
There are stairs in the room for the children beds so check before if this suitable for you.
There is a nice pool with a view to the forest.
Jogging in the forest is amazing.
Highly recommended.
I recommend to eat lunch & dinner at the restaurant of the hotel since other places in the city are pretty poor quality.

I stayed a week in this luxury boutique hotel as the venue for The Healthy Holiday Company's fitness week, called InSpa. This means that in addition to the hotel staff, we also had our own chef to prepare food for our detox diet (no dairy, caffeine, salt, sugar) so I didn't experience the hotel's food.

The hotel has been beautifully converted from an 11th century farmhouse 3 years ago. My room was on the second floor and was roomy enough to include a super king sized bed, a couple of King Louis style chairs, a double sofa as well as a wardrobe and solid set of drawers. Double doors lead onto a roomy balcony with views over the surrounding farm and woodlands. Before I left I checked out some of the other rooms and they were as luxurious or even better than the one I'd had.

The ensuite bathroom was beautiful and included a hairdryer (had to keep a button depressed to use it), a free standing bath, a shower, and sink. The bath towels were a decent size which is always nice and they provided slippers and dressing gown. Sadly, during my week here there was a rather unpleasant ‘drain’ smell wafting through the bedroom from the bathroom despite the lovely hotel staff’s best efforts to remedy. The drain issue was also responsible for the flooding every time I took a shower (not ideal on a fitness holiday). I think this is due to a combination of poor design as well as drain blockages. One of the showers squirts directly out the door at chest height; there is no shower tray which lovely in theory, means that a small buildup of water over the bottom glass door seal allows water to flood out onto the wooden floors of the bedroom beyond. Easily rectified but I’m aware that at least two other guests had a similar experience. Quite irritating over the course of an entire week.

The underfloor cooling system whilst brilliant in theory, really didn't seem to work at all. Several of us found the rooms stifling during our mid June stay. I asked several times for a fan for the room and was the only one of our group of 11 to get one, albeit just for the last night of our stay! A fan in each room would be a good investment! Although I did open the windows to bring in breeze, this also brought in the bugs and noise - particularly the heavy machinery that was working away on building a decent road into the hotel.

The only other criticism I have is that the owner tended to be around all the time and never smiled or gave us any sense of hospitality during the week until I engaged him directly on the day before we were leaving. It may have been that he didn't speak English (we didn't speak Spanish), but there was nothing welcoming about him and several of us noticed independently. I was told he designed the hotel himself and overall I think he did a marvellous job, but a smile can go a long way! That said, the other staff were absolutely lovely - English speakers or not.

I think this is a beautiful spot. Close to hiking and cycling and just an hour and a half beyond Barcelona airport. The woods and natural meadows were full of wild poppies, thyme, rosemary, camomile and other flowers. It wouldn't take much for me to give this a 5 star review, but 7 nights experiencing the same issues of overheating at night, smelly drains day and night in my room and consistent flooding really took the shine off what was a rather amazing retreat.

We got lucky as there was no one in the hotel the night we stayed there. We had it all to ourselves. It's a gorgeous property, sort of in the middle of nowhere, and we had booked a room just because we wanted to break up our trip across country not because we were coming to a wedding or anything. Not knowing what to expect we were pleasantly surprised: gorgeous views, good food, lovely places to sit and relax and a wonderful swimming pool. There are also country walks nearby but one of our group went jogging and met an aggressive dog so do ask the staff before you go about which paths are best etc.

This is more a place to relax than anything else. Service was unhurried, not much help with suitcases etc and the wifi was a weak except for in the dining room. We arrived tired and dusty and not really in the mood for a welcome drink--more in the mode of let's get to our room please. But we chilled out and wished we were staying longer.

The staff said they do yoga retreats and weddings so my advice would be to come when it's not crowded if you can possibly help it.
