Getting out of Barcelona for 48 hours but don’t know where to go? Why not have a couple of relaxing days in the countryside.
Time to check out from everyday life and to check in at Hotel Mas La Ferreria in the beautiful rural area of La Vall de Bianya, La Garrotxa.
Hotel Mas La Ferreria is set inside the premises of the parish church of Santa Margarida de Bianya, which dates back to the 14th century. The hotel is small and secluded; they count with six singular rooms all with a view of the lush landscape of La Vall de Bianya.
The owners of Hotel Mas La Ferreria completed the restoration back in 2015. The decoration of each room is unique, but in all of them, they maintained the rural charm by paying attention to the smallest of details.
On our stay at Hotel Mas La Ferreria, we had decided to have dinner on our arrival, but as we were running behind schedule due to external factors, we contacted the hotel and explain our situation. The hotel staff was nothing but understanding and helpful but explained kindly that the kitchen would be closed due to the late hour we would arrive.

We decided to grab a bite on the way, but as things turn out we didn´t. We arrived at Hotel Mas La Ferreria while doing the check in the receptionist asked if we had dinner on our way and as she found out we hadn´t, she kindly offers us some cold cuts and cheese. Who can say no to that! We left our luggage in our room and headed out in the garden where we enjoyed the goodies while the night was falling quiet around us.
After good night sleep, we woke up feeling refreshed, jumped out of bed and into the rain shower with organic amenities, big thumbs up!
The breakfast (included in the price of the room) was set on the terrace in the garden with a gorgeous view over La Vall de Bianya. On the table, we got fresh squeezed orange juice, bread from a nearby bakery and a plate with locally produced cold cuts. On a counter, they prepared a small but great selection of fresh cut fruit, organic yoghurt and sweets. The best breakfast I had in a long time in terms of food and ambience.
What else can be found at the hotel? The Lounge bar on the ground floor used to be one of the old stables where the cows were kept. Now we can find comfortable armchairs next to the open fire, perfect to enjoy a good book.
Breakfast with a view
Hotel Mas La Ferreria has a big garden that blends with the surrounding landscape. In the garden we can find a small saltwater pool, the water is naturally treated with salt, kind to skin, eyes and hair.
In the area around the hotel, there are many things to see and do. If you want to cycle or walk the carrilets are perfect, it follows the old route of gauge railway. A short drive we can find the volcanic zone and natural park of La Garrotxa, which have 28 walking routes that pass through the parks most interesting places. On Hotel Mas La Ferreria´s website, they give more activity suggestions.
Hotel Mas La Ferreria is the perfect place to wind down, to have a relaxing moment if it´s either to just stay to enjoy the hotel or to be adventures around the area.
A special thank you to the wonderful staff that gives that little extra to all of their clients and always with a smile. Since the hotel is small with only six rooms, I would recommend booking your room with good foresight.
