Welcome to Mas El Molladar
Mas El Molladar offers a warm and friendly welcome to a 15th century traditional Catalan country house, which has been restored and converted for rural tourism, preserving its rustic style. We are located in the beautiful and protected Natural Area of the Alta Garrotxa.
The house has 5 private bedrooms with en suite bathroom and central heating (3 double rooms, 1 triple room, 1 for four guests, most with room for an extra bed). Latex mattresses and the calm and quiet valley guarantee a good rest. There are no TVs, wifi nor mobile phone cover in the rooms, so you can have a true digital detox during your stay.
You can enjoy the living/dining room with a fireplace which makes cold days a pleasure. We have another cozy room with comfortable sofas and satellite TV, and a large games room with a ping-pong table that one enters from the garden.
The garden has various areas for different uses: a childrens playground, the pool and terrace, and plenty of quiet corners to relax in silence, all with spectacular views of the valley.
We allow well-behaved dogs to have a holiday too, as long as they do not bark usually, and are used to strangers and getting on with other dogs.
They may not be left here if their owners leave, and are not allowed to enter the pool area.
We have 2 cats, who are usually outside.
At Mas El Molladar we offer half board (breakfast and evening meal) with traditional Catalan home cooking prepared with the best local ingredients. The buffet breakfasts offer juice, toast, ham, cheese, local cold meats, jams, home-made orange or walnut cake, cereals, yogurt, freshly cooked eggs on demand, and fresh fruit. We have a fixed dinner menu (with a small choise of desserts), although in special cases we can adapt to the needs of our guests. Please let us know in advance if you have any allergies.
Outdoor heated swimming pool
In mountain areas the low nocturnal temperatures do not allow the water of most pools to warm up until well into the summer, and after a very few weeks it begins to cool down.
To extend the swimming season our pool is heated to maintain a comfortable temperature for most of the year, and take advantage of all the warm days that the mild microclimate we have in this valley give us . From early May onwards and you can enjoy its lightly salted water (salt electrolysis system) which helps achieve a spectacular mountain tan on the panoramic terrace. It is usually in service until the end of November, but please check the exact dates, which can vary somewhat depending on the weather.
The semi-transparent thermal cover may be partially withdrawn to contemplate the landscape from the water.
The massage jets complete the experience of relaxation and wellbeing.
