L'Avenc de Tavertet, A Castle in Spain

Manor House in Spain, Catalunya


L'Avenc is a large country 'masia' that housed a farming family from the 13th century onwards. Its grandeur makes it a landmark, and yet, despite its history and austere look, it is confortable and cosy to inhabit. Come and experience the life at 3,000 feet above the River Ter valley with views out of every window!

This road takes you past Roda de Ter and would end up in Olot but after 10 kms you’ll need to turn off at L’Esquirol, go through the village and up a 13km narrow winding newly tarred road Tavertet. The views are spectacular. The whole journey takes approximately: 2 hours.
