We spent one night at this very attractive property and were most impressed by the level of comfort, the excellent food and the warm welcome from Roy and Goretti. During our stay we were able to visit the beautiful old town of Besalu and also to do a short walk along the ancient Roman road. This is a lovely area,...

We had been biking since 12 noon experiencing a thunderstorm and chill winds. We knew that we were looking for Sant Miquel de Pineda, but we really had no idea what to expect. The cycling company who had made all the arrangements for our adventure in Catalunya had chosen it. We arrived wet, disheveled, cold and hungry. I don't think...

Here for 4 nights and finding we are eating like Kings! The cuisine has to be sampled to be believed,served by our hosts Roy and Goretti in an amazing setting almost film set like! Plenty to do in surrounding area, running, cycling, volcano exploring or simply sunning your self by the private pool. We'll be back

Roy and Goretti opened their newly restored ancient rectory four years ago and are working their socks off to make their guests' stays as enjoyable as possible. They have incorporated into the rooms elements of the old building such as doors and shutters and blended these with a quirky mixture of antiques from Roy's Scottish family home and the local...

This was our fifth visit to La Rectoria, and we were very happy to see nothing's changed: still the same warm family welcome, the more-than-comfortable accommodation, and of course the terrific cooking (the sticky toffee pudding is a wonderful memory).

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
La Rectoria de Sant Miquel de Pineda is a lovingly restored, family run, 12th century rectory set in La Garrotxa Volcanic Natural Park, on the southern edge of the Pyrenees 45 minutes north west from Girona. At La Rectoria we offer uncomplicated hospitality and comfort in the relative privacy, peace and quiet of our woodland setting. Our guest house is situated on the via verde cycle path 15km south of Olot and 85km from the Costa Brava and the town of Sant Feliu de Guixols. Set in a large garden with a swimming pool. There is also a small patio between the house and the chapel of Sant Miquel where you can sit, relax, read and enjoy an aperitif. The house has 7 ensuite (showers only) bedrooms, two lounges, one with a TV and two spacious halls. Free wifi is available. The dining room gives guests a wonderful view down the Vall d'Hostales where breakfast and dinner are served. At breakfast as well as teas, coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice and the Catalan breakfast of 'pa i tomaquet' (toast with tomato), there is a buffet of local cheeses and cured meats, homemade sponge and cereals. All the jams and marmalades are homemade and there is the additional option of our 'Egg Menu'.....scrambled, boiled, poached and more! In the evening we serve a fixed 3 course menu (24€) using local produce where ever possible. All of the dishes are freshly prepared, reflecting a mix of the culinary styles of Catalonia and Scotland, the owner/chef's home, with a number of the desserts being classic puddings and all the ice creams homemade. All of our wines are Catalan. A bar menu is available and we stock a good selection of Scottish whiskies. We can arrange bike hire and for these to be delivered to the house and we are happy to assist our guests with advice on activities and things to visit, see and do in the surrounding area. ... more   less
