“Brilliant - a marvelous and unforgetful stay”
Reviewed 23 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

What a pleasure to do something different and stay away from the typical manicured hotels of today and stay instead at a castle. Wow, what an experience!
The views are spectacular as is the whole rustic scenery around the castle. Marc, our host, was excellent and ever helpful, and I found the whole experience magical.
Forget staying at the usual hotel where nothing is memorable, and book a few days here for an experience you won’t forget.

“WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE”
Reviewed 16 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

I stumbled on this castle by sheer chance. We were two couples staying in Barcelona and had decided to go north. We had no idea where to go until I found this on the Trip Advisor web site. It was Saturday night and we needed a bed for the next three nights and this mediaeval castle (something I had always dreamed of staying in) at the foot of the Pyrenees just happened to be available. Marc responded to my email very rapidly and we were in – and very excited to be headed off for this adventure. Llaes Castle is by no means luxury accommodation. There’s plenty of space but the bathrooms are small and rudimentary and the furniture is pretty old – but it is an exciting place to stay and a 5 star experience. Eating and drinking local wines on the balcony after a day out, while surveying waves of deserted mountains as far as the eye could see - with the sounds only of birds and the occasional dog – and watching the local shepherd way below moving his sheep each evening was magical. We absolutely loved it. Marc and Jenny were perfect hosts and very helpful with information and Marc has a great knowledge of the history of the castle.

On a practical note, don’t make the mistake I did and arrive with a large suitcase. It’s a steep path (but not difficult) up into the castle when you get there. You need to bring food and drink. It’s quite a way back down the mountain – about 45 minutes of narrow, winding roads – to Ripoll, the nearest town. And if you are arriving on a Sunday as we did, make sure you purchase your supplies at the supermarket before 2 pm. We luckily found some supplies at a service station (which had a few groceries and wine) in Ripoll for the first night.

It’s a great place for hikers but regardless, it’s just a great place to stay.
