Olvan is a municipality in the province of Bergueda, which is known for its majestic landscapes at the foothills of the Pyrenees.

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.

The owners were very helpful pleasant people, we could not fault them. However, we were not expecting that we were not able to get our vehicles right up to the front door and with carrying shopping and luggage for 15 people, this was quite time consuming. We were also disappointed that the hot water system was not very efficient and showers were mostly little more than lukewarm. The electricity supply was problematic also and when we were using the oven and another couple of electrical devices at the same time, the trip switch was triggered meaning multiple visits to reset it. Maybe too given that we spent 10 nights there, we could have been offered fresh towels. The heating was generally good although it was mild weather during our stay. Maybe too, the details should explain that the road to the castle is single track for some distance and unmade for the last stretch. Overall I would certainly recommend Castell Llaes but do feel that the above points need to be addressed.
