What can I do in Castellfollit de la Roca and its holiday cottages?

One of the most beautiful towns in Catalonia. This is Castellfollit de la Roca, the gateway to the Garrotxa Volcanic Zone Natural Park and a magnificent natural viewpoint. Castellfollit, however, is best known because it is located on top of a basaltic cliff.

The history of Castellfollit de la Roca and its surroundings

The first references to Castellfollit de la Roca appear at the end of the 11th century, when it belonged to the Viscounty of Bas, a feudal jurisdiction within the county of Besalú. At the end of the War of the Reapers, in 1657, the Battle of Castellfollit took place, when the French troops besieging the castle of Castellfollit were defeated. A castle that, a few years later, during the Nine Years' War was demolished. During the War of Succession (1700-1714) there was also fighting near the town.

CristinaMas Corominola - With the family

La Garrotxa makes me fall in love

The house is beautiful and the surroundings spectacular, the only thing we put in it is the pool and the barbecue area. The pool is very small for the capacity of the house and the barbecue in full sun, without work space or sink...

Naturaki respond: Thank you, Cristina, for your review. Regarding the size of the pool, you can see the dimensions on the website to know exactly. As for the barbecue area, we take note of it to assess it. Thanks for visiting!

MayrinMas Corominola - With the family

Loved the house - struggled with biting insects at night

We absolutely loved our stay in Mas Corominola. The location was perfect for walks, runs, even had an amazing playground within walking distance. Some incredible food to be had in the town (Olot). The owner was very kind and gave us helpful tips etc. It is August so we struggled at night with the heat, we opened all windows at night but got eaten by mosquitoes and other black flies with the most painful bites. That was the only negative for us, we loved everything else. It would be great to have air conditioning or mosquito nets for the bedrooms.

Naturaki respond: Thank you, Mayrin, for your opinion. We are glad to know that you liked your stay at Mas Corominola. We take note of your comments to evaluate it. Thanks for the visit!
