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.

Wonderful, tranquil and special place

5 of 5
Had a wonderful stay. Accomodations had everything we needed...even a stovetop coffee maker I used every day. Anna was very helpful and welcoming. Location was perfect: just a few minutes to historic old church, centre of town and supermarket. Balsareny's central location worked out well as it is just was 20-60 minutes from sites to see: Barcelona, Montserrat, Manressa. Bus and train schedules accurate and trustworthy. It was hard to leave Balsareny. Would recommend this lodging and would stay again.

Fantastic accommodation, beautiful location

5 of 5
Warm welcome with drinks and items from the Bakery. Lots of advice given so you can enjoy the local area. Accomodation a high standard. Traditional but modern. Pool area has amazing views. Lovely shady area under trees for BBQ and table tennis. We had a fantastic holiday and would go back in a flash. Everything is provided from washing powder and dishwasher tablets to toilet roll and kitchen roll, even a bottle of bubbly in fridge when we arrived. We stayed in 2 bed apartment with our 2 boys and made friends with others staying there. There is a little supermarket, butchers, couple of bakers and Vic is not far away to find bigger supermarkets.
