Make a holiday cottage in Solsones your home away from home

A wonderful choice for winter or summer, holiday cottages in Solsones are traditional dwellings, full of authentic charm and set within inspiring mountainous scenery. Summer at Solsones holiday homes means sunny days relaxing in the pool or garden, or heading out for a kayak, mountain bike or hiking adventure. Winter is all about the snow, with ski resorts and cross-country trails easily reached, and gorgeous landscapes that can be admired from the comfort of your car. At any time of the year it's worth visiting some of the picturesque villages and towns in the region, and when you return there's nothing like cooking with fresh local produce at your Solsones cottage.

Things to do

-Ski and winter sport. Sitting at a maximum elevation of 2400 metres, Port del Comte is one of Catalonia's premier ski resorts. There are 36 runs here, the majority of which are blue and red. The slopes are served by 15 lifts with a capacity of 15,000 passengers per hour. The northern portion of the Port del Comte range is reserved for cross-country skiers, with 25 kilometres of clearly marked trails available.

-Walks. With a long list of walks to choose, and huge swathes of unspoiled mountainous scenery to explore, hiking is a real joy in Solsones. Many of the routes will lead you to stunning lookouts or sites of ancient or even prehistoric historical importance. Trails are broken down between low, medium and high levels of difficulty, with most routes considered suitable for families. Serious hikers could take on one of the long-distance trails that crosses Solsones (GR-7, GR-1 and GR-3).

-Gastronomy. At the foothills of the Pyrenees the wild mushrooms are fantastic. And in Solsona there's an annual mushroom picking festival, which takes place at the end of October. There's even a competition to see who can pick the most mushrooms in a set time. Cured meats are also a famous local product, especially pork sausages like fuet.

-Summer recreation. Besides hiking, a wealth of outdoor activities are open to visitors to Solsones. You've got mountain biking, horseback riding, adventure parks, paragliding and kayaking, while it's also possible to hire a guide for a climbing or canyoning trip. If golf is your game, then there are two good choices here - Port del Comte and Club de Golf Ribera Salada.

-Interesting sights. Solsona is a charming town with an old quarter that deserves a visit. It is still enclosed by original gates and defensive walls, and boasts handsome squares like Placa de Sant Joan, which has a beautiful 18th Century fountain. In the surrounding upland region you'll also find numerous sanctuaries - chapels located in remote and often elevated settings. Lord Sanctuary, which sits atop a small plateau, is a fantastic example.

Weather in Solsones

If you're visiting a Solsones holiday rental in summer then you can be ready for warm weather. The region gets a Mediterranean climate, and from May to September temperatures are in the mid-20s or higher. On a typical day in July you can expect clear skies and a very low chance of rain. The wetter weather occurs from October to March, and on higher ground this can turn to snow. Conditions in winter also feel cooler if the wind is blowing off the Pyrenees to the north.

Travel to Solsones

To get to a holiday home in Solsones from the UK you'll have two options when it comes to airports. Barcelona El Prat (BCN) is Spain's second-largest airport, and gets a lot of traffic from Britain throughout the year, with a whole host of different carriers. It's about 90 minutes from the region, taking the C-55 up in the direction of Solsona. Lleida (ILD) is an alternative. It's marginally closer, with a few links to the UK, and is connected to Solsones via the A-2 and C-451.

A fantastic spacious home with stunning view.

5 of 5
Stayed a week in mid september. We had quite high expectations but the property topped them all. The place i beautiful an wery relaxing, its hard to find a better view on a hillside. Everything is built as a personal summer home with high standard. No typical rental home cheap stuff. The kitchen is very good, with big gas/electric stowe, nice plates, wine glasses etc. Nice separate bathroom with washer. Big living room with huge fireplace. We did not use it as the weather was nice and for two persons the two upper stairs are more than enough. The natural pool is gorgeous, and the water naturally as soft as a lake, but if you are afraid of the tiny frog babies that help cleaning the pool, you are not gonna swim. Don't come here with a sports car the road upp from the village is a steap dirt road in not the best condition. Heavy rain will quickly make it worse. You can manage it with a normal car. People are very nice especially Yolanda who gave us the key and the man (sorry forgot his name) that took us app to the palace.They did not speak english but that was no problem. And also Brot, the kindest watch dog i´we ever met, very well schooled. He lives outside, never comes inside. He only comes to check you when you arrive with car back to the property and sometimes puts he's nose trough the kitchen door in the morning. Highly Recommended Magnus
