We have just been back for a fourth visit. I love this place and the owners and staff are so friendly and nothing is too much trouble. I would highly recommend the place for a peaceful and relaxing holiday and when there I would also recommend booking a massage with Marta. I have had massages all over the world, but...

We have just come back from a weekend at L'Avenc de Tavertet. We stayed in one of the flats on the ground floor of the new (2013) portion of L'Avenc, with amazing views. Everything was spotless and comfortable. Breakfast was plentiful and Belinda, the owner, was available for suggestions for hikes in the area and to book a table in...

We loved it all. The building, the organic, fair trade and delicious breakfast. The walks, the views, the cosseting from family and staff; the car park; the pool; the peace. We also LOVED the book 'A Castle in Spain' (Masia en Catalunya) as it brought home the incredible trials the family endured to make the place what it is today!...

The most inspiring place we've ever stayed in, and trust me, I've been looking for this kind of retreat for dozens of years and in many countries. It enables you to be close to yourself and to nature. The rooms are vast and pampering, We enjoyed 21st century comfort in a place built and restored by loving and caring people....

100% recommended. There we had to go in September, out of high season. Very quiet and with excellent views. Breakfast fantastic, the service great. They are lovely. Everything spotless. We had two dogs and went with no problem. A place to relax and unwind. Sure there again.

A place next to "cingles de l'Avenc", in the middle of nowhere but with all that you need to have a comfortable and peaceful stay. The studies and appartments are spacious, with modern furniture, full equipment and a balcony with views of Sau, where you can have the dinner or the lunch. And you can relax in the indoor swimming...

A slightly biased distant family member, this was our 4th visit. Always lost for words to describe the amazing views, beautiful accommodation and extremely friendly hosts. Will continue to visit whenever life gets too much!

We've been this week in this amazing place 2km away from Tavertet in the middle of the valley. It's a fantastic hotel with some cottages and a bar. Totally recomended if you want to be in a quiet and peaceful place, sorrounded by high mountains and breathtaking views. If you're only visiting, you can have a salad and a good...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
L’Avenc is a family home with self-catering cottages, studios and rooms with wonderful views. We are also a conference centre and can cater for family celebrations. Awarded recently first prize in Responsable toursim, we started by restoring the 13th-16th century masia in 1997, where we live, to its former glory, have introduced renewable energy in the form of solar panels and a wind generator, and are currently running the cattle farm and co-managing the area of outstanding natural beauty with the trust: Fundació Catalunya-La Pedrera. We have just finished our new wing (May 2013) and can now offer simple rural comfort and delicious breakfasts. We are open all year round and are commited to keeping the countryside beautiful and visitable, keeping small villages alive, employing local residents and to enhancing and supporting animal welfare. ... more   less
