The sight of the church and the houses high on the edge of the basalt precipice has become one of the most photographed and painted images in Catalonia; it is also however a magnificent natural viewpoint overlooking the valleys of the two rivers. Montagut and Tortella, small Pyrenean foothill villages, will be an interesting stop. You can also take a detour to the beautiful bridge and rock pools close to Montagut, giving you a chance to cool off. From Tortella you head to the beautiful medieval town of Besalu with its ancient right-angled bridge and sleepy stone paved streets. Lunch could be in Besalu at a wonderful local restaurant.

    I loved every moment of my time at Mas Peligri. From the moment I got there, I was relaxed and just fell in love with Spain. Fiona and Garett could not have been better hosts. They make sure everyone is happy and go over and above to make your stay amazing. The breakfasts and dinners together were so fun. I have some amazing pictures from my rides and did the horseback riding which was very fun. I did not want to leave and will definitely book another vacation with Mas Peligri.
