Reviewed December 5, 2011

I stayed at the El Pilaret Rural House (Casa Rural) while on a business trip to Monzon in Catalonia.
My hosts recommended El Pilaret to me before my arrival and so I was impressed by the online/website presentation. Have a look here: http://elpilaret.com/en/
I must admit, small businesses who make the effort to invest in their online presence always score major points with me. Moreso, the website has a translation in Spanish, English and French - this is impressive.

The location is way off the beaten track and far from the maddening crowd of a major city. A very rural setting and quite rightly so. Serene, peaceful and quiet - I could almost hear my heart beating.

The hostess and keeper met my colleagues and I in a warm Catalonian welcome. So, the personal touch began.
From the entrance into the hallway, you felt you were in a time warp - with the delightfully quaint and charming decor. Really pleasant. It felt like the setting of an European Opera stage with a modern appeal. For this I coined the word 'trado-modern'. Traditional meets modern. It felt like the characters of Ruddigore Opera would come out and break into a song (sorry for the plug, was at the Ruddigore Operatta last month).

The double room I stayed in had a Hydro-massage shower - which I was too embarrassed to work out - I admit :) But the shower was fantastic and the accessories (another point-scorer with me) which came with the shower seemed to scream out to me: 'you must stay 2 more nights!'. It certainly had that feel.
I shall add some pictures to further buttress my claims about this little gem of Azanuy.

I would recommend this place to people who want a quiet place to stay as well as experience traditional Catalonian hospitality in a 'trado-modern' setting. Writers and business persons, couples and families would love it. Absolutely fantastic.
Ask for Madam Dolores the hostess and keeper of the place; a truly wonderful and fabulous hostess.

I even had a complimentary bottle of traditional bottle of Rose wine from the region to take with me. Now you can't beat that!

Room Tip: Rooms with a balcony are recommended. Other rooms have their peculiar touch too!

Thanks TJAbif. We think that you give us the best description of EL PILARET. "TRADO-MODERN" Classic decoration with the commodities of our time. Only one thing: We are in SOMONTANO.LA LITERA region. Not Catalonia,but it's true that Catalonia is near from here.
It was a pleasure know you and we hope see you soon:-)
