Can Serola is a luxury country hotel in an 18th century "masia", set in the Garrotxa Natural Park just a few miles from Gerona and Figueres. The eight rooms and suites provide space and comfort in a delightfully rural setting.
The Cataluña countryside here near the Pyrenees is refreshingly green and gently undulating. The hotel is located by a small river with expansive gardens full of trees and blessed with lots of lawns. There is a large swimming pool and an outdoor jacuzzi, or as an alternative, visitors might choose to swim in the fresh water pool of the river just a short walk away, as it tumbles down from the Pyrenees.
The eight rooms and guest suites take you on a worldwide journey as each is designed to evoke the atmosphere of a distant destination: Africa, India, Mexico and so on.
This is a holiday location ideal for country-lovers. There are views and walks in abundance, historic places are all around, or else it is the perfect place to chill, enjoying the beautiful exterior and interior of Can Serola without venturing far afield at all.
There are many good reasons to stay at Can Serola, not least the gorgeous rooms with their carefully selected furnishings and ornaments reflecting the cultural theme of each room. However the unique feature is a short distance away in the river: the natural swimming pools. In our modern haste for pools that have been sanitised with chlorine, algicide, ph modifier, cyanuric acid and whatever, perhaps we have lost sight of the simple satisfaction of swimming in pure fresh water. I can vouch for that pleasure.

Reviews from Little Hotels Travellers:
|This was a superb hotel. The only thing that would have made it better would have been a more comfortable bed (it was hard and we didn't get great sleep). The setting food and service were however second to none.|
|I just wanted to say that the hotel we stayed in (Can Serola, Catalunia) was fantastic. My girlfriend and I really enjoyed it, the room was nice, the owner was very friendly and helpful and we thought all the facilities were great! Would recommend it to our friends and family!|
|My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Can Serola for 3 nights in May. We stayed in the Ethnic Room which was extremely comfortable and well-appointed. The hotel and its location was just as described, very peaceful with fabulous views. We enjoyed a delicious breakfast on the terrace on the fine mornings, when it was a pity to have to leave such lovely surroundings to do some sight-seeing. The evening meals were perfect at the end of a long day, and excellent value. Our host Gilbert was welcoming and helpful with suggestions of what to see and do in the area.|
|We have stayed this summer during 3 nights at Can Serola.|
Can Serola is a wonderful option - provided you do not care too much about money !
On the plus side :
1 -beautiful building furnished with taste
2 -Very peaceful area (the first house close is about 1 km away ). Breathtaking landscape around
3 -very nice & large pool and garden
4 -Nice guests
On the negative side:
1 -No AC in the room, which is a shame in spain, knowing the outside temperature in summer. We haven?t slept much !
2 -They offer a "table d'hote" which is overpriced. 2 adults + child at more than 150 EUR for a simple tapas dinner (though good and served in large quantity)
3 -the rooms are a bit overpriced as well (suite around 260 EUR / night for 2 + child)
4 -breakfast is continental and limited choice of swwets and bread (no "salted" option!).
We enjoyed our stay but found that the quality /price ratio was a bit low due to an overpriced stay.
