Hotel Can Serola

Sales de Llierca, Gerona

The sun shines as music wafts outside, to wicker-furnished lawns surrounded by green mountains. Float in the pool, dine on the terraces


8 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


In the Natural Park of Alta Garrotxa, distinguished by its natural pools and 60 species of bird, the air begins to cool and the winding road brings you to the long leafy drive of Can Serola. Enveloped by terraced gardens, the place breathes total serenity. Step inside the 18th-century farmhouse; Gilbert, from the world of fashion and design, has renovated and redecorated exquisitely. With many intricate and precious things around, and a fenced pool, this is ideal for well-behaved children, but what a place for a gathering: you can rent the house in its entirety! Beautiful bedrooms come fully themed and spin you round the world in style: a muslin-hung ƒfour-poster in Africa; an intricately carved headboard in Morocco; a serene black/white bathroom in Japanese-themed Zen – guests have their favourites. Beds are huge, linen top quality, and four rooms open to the grounds. Wake to homemade muffins, cakes, croissants, hams, cheeses, fruits, served wherever you like them, then set off for Romanesque Besalú, Dali country and atmospheric Girona. Return to a massage, jacuzzi and sauna, drinks on the lawns and a delectable dinner.

An excellent stay. I agree with all the reviewers. It's not a place you would want to miss. We visited with our 3 year old with another on the way and we had the time of our lives. An extraordinarily tranquil place coupled with great hospitality made our stay one of the most memorable ones. Thanks to Gilbert and his staff who accommodated our every request with a smile. Excellent location not too far from Gerona (30mins drive) , Dali's museum in Figueres and Besalu. We would love to return with our second.

This is an oasis of tranquility. Beautiful scenery and friendly, helpful staff - couldn't ask for much more


Heaven on earth! A very special place. We knew it would be good if it was on the Sawdays site, but we didnt expect the pasradise we found ourselves in. The setting is truly beautiful - an abundance of flourishing fauna and bird song, and a deep peace and tranquility. The rooms are exquisite - probably some of the best authentic object d'art I've seen in a guest house and all placed with Gilbert's artistic and professional eye. Every room is different and authentic to its theme, and yet integral to the whole house. Gilbert is wondreful and thoughtful host. Get there - whatever it takes!


If you are after a break with complete quiet, delicious food and impeccable service Can Serola is the place for you.


A beautiful hotel in a stunning setting. We were made to feel welcome and able to truly relax here. The food was delicious and the surroundings and ambience made this a memorable trip.


Location is breathtakingly beautiful with amazing views of mountains. Very serene and tranquil. We had pre-booked an evening meal and this was an excellent five course meal with a good choice of wine. Breakfast was also very good with plenty of choice. The house is very tastefully decorated with lots of interesting objects from Gilbert’s travels. There are lots of places nearby to visit and we went to the old town at Besalu, the Salvidore Dali Museum at Figueres and Girona. We would highly recommend this hotel and we will definitely be returning.
