Visitors and cyclists love this region; its weather, its landscapes, its food, its people and more, which is one of the reasons so many professional cyclists and their teams are located here. Catalonia has also emerged as a culinary destination. There is a high concentration of Michelin star restaurants to be enjoyed for an elegant dining experience and the rustic, traditional Catalan meats, rice dishes, fish and cheeses are savoury treats available at even the simplest restaurants.
For the first 6 nights we are based in a private villa with pool and private chef in the province of Girona at the foothills of the Pyrenees Mountains, but still only 30 kilometres from the Costa Brava coastline.
For the remaining 3 nights we stay at a beautiful hotel in Girona, giving an easy 5 minute walk to the old parts of town (the Barri Vell) with narrow cobbled streets, lined with cafes, shops and restaurants where we will enjoy dinner each night. Girona is a cosmopolitan town that caters to many interests. Not only is there an ideal environment for cycling and sports, but Girona also has an affluent, cultured community. At the daily farmer’s market, the locals sell their fruit, vegetables, olives, cheese, fish and meat.
Enjoy a dip in the pristine Banyoles lake, or a beer at a local artisan brewery. Visit the prehistoric caves of Serinya, the honey village of Crespia, the pumpkin village of Esponella, the medieval village of Besalu, the old museum in Banyoles with its prehistoric specimens, the geological rock formations at Estunes and Castellfollit de la Roca and the art in the forest installation at Can Gingebreda.
For non-riders our location provides the perfect base to discover this beautiful region with your dedicated transport and driver, including day trip options to beaches, rocky coves, historical towns, vineyards and sleepy fishing villages are never far away.
For our riders there are quiet roads, an abundance of amazing routes for all levels of fitness, the views are majestic and the royal blue Mediterranean appears tranquil and welcoming. The test climbs of the pros (El Mont and Rocacorba), start just 10kms from the door and rise up 1000 metres, or you can ride into the Pyrenees up to a ski station at over 2000 metres in less than 80km. The rolling countryside on our doorstep lake makes for easier and more relaxed cycling routes of 40-80km, with visits to old stone villages, local cafes and country restaurants along the way.
We can also offer our guests a day trip to the Girona Greenway, which is the former railway line from the Pyrenees to the Costa Brava. It has now been turned into a track only for walkers and bikes, making it a safe and peaceful environment which allows you enjoy privileged and diverse landscapes, from the volcanoes at the Garrotxa to the Costa Brava beaches and coves, This is a route for all abilities.
