What can I do in El Mallol and its holiday cottages?

El Mallol is a town in the municipality of Vall d'en Bas located to the left of the Gurn river, which extends to the slopes of a hill on which we find the ruins of the ancient medieval castle of Mallol, which was the residence of the Viscounts of Bas. Since 2008 it has been a Cultural Asset of National Interest.

The history of El Mallol and its surroundings

The town of El Mallol grew and was enclosed within walls during the 14th century to defend the population, largely devoted to the trades of blacksmith, carpenter, tailor, etc. It also had the administrative curia, the justice system and the Casa del Verguer , which functioned as a prison until the end of the 19th century. There have been references to the castle since 1204.

JordiMas el Boscà Nou - With the family

Beautiful house in an unbeatable environment

Once you arrive at the house you are impressed by the surroundings, surrounded by fields but at the same time 5-10 minutes from the area's attractions and services. Upon arriving at the house, the taste with which it is made both inside and outside stands out, it is beautiful and it is a pleasure to spend time in it. Barbecue, fenced pool, large indoor and outdoor tables to accommodate almost 20 people... everything is ideal. Two minutes walk away and which is part of the farm, there are cows and horses to see with the children. Add that Jordi (the person who gave us the keys) is very friendly and available and attentive during the stay.

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!
