Beautiful, Unforgetable, Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our wedding party chose to stay at Castell de Llaes based in large part on the great reviews the property had online. Everybody was completely correct about how fantastic a rental it is.

The caretaker, Marc, was a wonderful host. He's very welcoming and helpful with getting people situated. He was very informative about things to do in the area and is very knowledgeable about the local history. He's also very patient with guests and was always around when we needed him. We wish we could have spent more time getting to know him, a great guy.

The house itself is a wonder to behold. The bedrooms are very charming with amazing views in every direction. Our group spent most of the week out on the balcony, which became the center of action every day and night. The wi-fi was limited but reliable. The kitchen facilities were just fine, as were the bathrooms. Most people will never get to stay in such an amazing place. Words don't really do it justice.

There's a small hostel/restaurant a short walk down the road that shouldn't be missed. It's fun to walk down there for drinks and the home-cooked food is great. Watch out for boars!

On a couple nights, our group swelled to over 20 people and it got a bit cramped up at the castle with all of us sharing bathrooms and fridge space. We were warned, but tried it anyway. Marc was helpful in accommodating all of us, but we don't recommend squeezing in that many people. Better to have several stay down the road at the cozy hostel. It was still a great time.

We highly recommend this most amazing opportunity- you will NOT regret it.

A stunning place

  • 4 of 5

The castle and the surrounding countryside was better than we expected with all the potential for a peaceful and relaxing stay. The owners were very helpful pleasant people, we could not fault them.

However, we were not expecting that we were not able to get our vehicles right up to the front door and with carrying shopping and luggage for 15 people, this was quite time consuming. We were also disappointed that the hot water system was not very efficient and showers were mostly little more than lukewarm. The electricity supply was problematic also and when we were using the oven and another couple of electrical devices at the same time, the trip switch was triggered meaning multiple visits to reset it. Maybe too given that we spent 10 nights there, we could have been offered fresh towels. The heating was generally good although it was mild weather during our stay. Maybe too, the details should explain that the road to the castle is single track for some distance and unmade for the last stretch.

Overall I would certainly recommend Castell Llaes but do feel that the above points need to be addressed.

An Amazing and Unforgettable Experience

  • 5 of 5

I spent five weeks at the Castell de Llaes, the last week of July and the entire month of August 2016. It was truly a magical experience. The Castell itself is magnificent and the views are breathtaking. My stay was so incredible in large part due to the exceptional care and attention my host, Marc provided me. He went far beyond what was expected to assure all my needs were met. I fell in love with Marc and his dogs, Bruc and Dora. I so enjoyed my morning walks exploring the surroundings and coming upon new discoveries each day. I had groups of family and friends come join me at the Castell for different weeks during my extended stay. Everyone had a marvelous time. The location was fabulous and so many great places to see within an easy drive: Barcelona and it's sites, Monestir de Montserrat, charming village of Ripoll, the medieval village of Besalu, Pyrenees drive into France, Girona, Salvador Dali museum in Figueres. I highly recommend experiencing the 10th century Castell de Llaes. You will not be disappointed. Thank you Marc.

  • 5 of 5

"Wow! One of the best places we have ever stayed. An amazing medival castle complete with a tiny church. Cozy and charming. Lovely two-storey accomodations. But best of all - the owners - they were delightful hosts. Though they spoke no English we got by with a combination of French/Spanish. Overall 6/5. Just make sure you have a good road map. A must stay and one we hope to return to one day. Gracias Joan/Esther!!"

Como en un sueño

  • 5 of 5

Nuestra estancia en el castillo de Llaés ha sido de ensueño.

Marc desde el primer momento nos recibió con mucha amabilidad y en todo momento se ha mostrado disponible y más que predispuesto. Nos regaló momentos únicos de su tiempo, en los que con un máximo de entusiasmo nos relató las leyendas e historias de este excepcional lugar.

El Castillo está alejado del mundo real, escondido entre montañas y como perdido en el tiempo...realmente tuvimos la sensación de adentrarnos en la historia, remota y no tan remota, puesto que hasta no hace demasiadas décadas algunas de las dependencias del castillo fueron usadas como escuela.

Si lo que se busca es tranquilidad i fascinación por el pasado, en este mágico lugar se encuentra sin duda alguna.

El castillo está cerca de Ripoll, a una media hora en coche y desde allí el visitante perdido en el tiempo se puede reencontrar con la modernidad. Las vistas que se tienen desde allí arriba son excepcionales y son muchos los lugares escondidos que esperaran para ser visitados.

El castillo esta limpio y completamente equipado para vivir con las comodidades del siglo XXI pero en un espació del siglo X.

Sin duda alguna ha sido una experiencia única y que pronto o tarde vamos a repetir.

Muchisimas gracias de corazón, Marc, por tu tiempo y tus palabras.
