Things to do

-Winter sport. La Molina is a ski resort with superb services and facilities - there are 53 runs here, totalling 61 kilometres, half of which are equipped with snowmaking facilities. There's also a freestyle snowpark, as well as extensive snowshoeing, tubing and sledging areas.

Here you can go for scenic walks, bike rides and horseback expeditions through a host of upland terrains. The lakes and rivers are perfect for kayaking, rafting, as well as swimming, in calmer spots. In summer the ski destinations become hubs for outdoor adventure, offering climbing alongside more relaxed recreation like golf.

-Natural landscapes. Unique scenery can be admired in La Garrotxa, which is home to Spain's largest volcanic zone. The landscape is made up of numerous extinct volcanoes, which are relatively easy to climb and are covered in rich vegetation thanks to the high mineral content of the soil. The Vall de Lord is also spectacular, cut by the Cardener River and made up of rocky and wooded hillsides and home to walled medieval towns like Sant Llorenc de Morunys.

-Historic towns. Puigcerda is a lovely town not far from the border with France. It's found at the heart of wine terraces next to the Segre river and boasts Romanesque churches, a 13th Century convent and the Torre de Campanar, a belltower from the 1100s belonging to a church destroyed in the Civil war. Further south, Baga is particularly quaint, with an old arcaded square and preserved buildings like the 13th Century Palau dels Barons de Pinos, built by wealthy local land-owners.

-Food and drink. Here on the slopes of the Pyrenees the cuisine is simple, comforting and founded almost entirely on local, seasonal produce. Typical dishes include a wide array of stews, soups and broths, involving cured meats, potatoes and all kinds of vegetables. An important product of the region is cheese from Al Urgell and Cerdanya, which is made from pasteurised cow's milk and is soft, creamy and mild, best enjoyed with white wines.

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.

The owner responded quickly via email in perfect English and was very helpful with local advice. We handed over with a local girl which worked well. We had some extremely cold weather (less then -10C) and were able to keep warm with the combination of fan heaters, gas heating and the open fire which was well stocked with wood. The skiing was a great success, the resort very quiet during the week. You can lose the occasional day due to high winds. We were very pleased and looking forward to a return in the future."
