Things to do in Olvan, Spain

There’s inspiring natural scenery all around holiday villas in Olvan. Perhaps the best place to go is Baga, which is the on the boundary of the Cadi Moixero Natural Park, a large expanse of mountain scenery. The park provides one of the last remaining habitats for the Iberian Lynx, and is a hotspot for outdoor activities like hiking and mountain biking. At Baga you’ll find an information centre offering advice on routes and attractions within the park.

Baga is also well worth a visit in its own right, boasting a 10th Century monastery as well as a medieval old town encircled by 13th century defensive walls and an arcaded central square.

A little closer to Olvan self-catering cottages is Berga, historically considered Catalonia’s gateway to the Pyrenees. The Portal de Santa Magdalena is a remnant of the town’s walls, while the Church of San Juan de Berga dates to the 13th Century and is famous for its vaulted ceilings.

If you arrive at an Olvan holiday cottage in the winter months you’ll find the Port del Comte ski resort less than an hour away. It’s one of the top destinations in the Spanish Pyrenees and offers 40 kilometres of pistes served by 15 ski lifts.

Perfect family holiday

5 of 5
Our extended family gathered at Casa Miro in July 2012 from the UK, Ireland, and the US--we couldn't have asked for a more perfect location. The descriptions were accurate, the house was immaculately clean and well kept, very modern, and comfortable for all of us, from the children to the grandparents. The owners were very friendly and helpful. . It is only about an hour's drive from Barcelona, and lovely drives into the Pyrenees as well. But if you just want to relax you could easily amuse yourself for the entire visit just at the house and enjoying walks around the area and in the nearby village (Gironella). Would definitely recommend this place, with no hesitations!

Beautiful Private Space

4 of 5
The property is located at the bottom of a private road with only one nearby house sharing that road. The views from Casa Pau are amazing; uninterrupted countryside. We saw about 3 cars on the horizon in our week sitting round the pool and you are not overlooked by a soul. Perfect for friends and family to share, the pool is wonderful and the location gorgeous. Nearby Gironella (10 mins drive) is great for a local butcher, baker and smaller supermarkets. Berga (15 mins drive) is larger with a beautiful restaurant on the hill (La Cabana). A 5 minute drive from the house is the Michelin starred "Els Casels" restaurant. This jewel not only provides mind blowingly good food and wine but also provides farm tours where you can see where your impending dinner was grown. The only downsides to the house were the nearby cockerels that announced sunrise approximately 2 hours before sunrise and don't stop announcing the fact until midday. Earplugs essential for the light sleeper. Also, we were a bunch of foodies and cooked quite alot. The house is in DESPERATE need of a refresh of the cooking equipment. All knifes dull, pans worn and generally lacking in utensils, pots, pans and jugs. A car is essential, but with one, you are very close to the Pyrenees and tons of beautiful scenery and activities (not to mention 75 mins from Barcelona). Would be perfect if the cockerels were killed.
