Based in the midst of the best cycling the Province of Girona has to offer.

Girona and Catalonia; rich in history, with a vibrant cycling and cultural heart

Mdv GironaThere are routes from 10kms to 200kms and everything in between, from high mountain climbs, to easier rolling countryside, to the test climbs of the pros, to the flatter rides to the Med.

The test climbs of the pros, El Mont and Rocacorba Els Angels, start just 20kms from the door and rise up 1000 metres or you can ride into the Pyrenees up to a ski station at over 2000 metres in less than 50 miles from the Hotel’s door. There are also longer routes which go over the Pyrenees to the east and then follow a valley in France before ascending steeply back over the high Pyrenees back into the Province of Girona and descending back to the Hotel.
