A more pleasant, surprise-free experience
A hearty breakfast with products from the area, conversation with the house owner, who suggests excursions in the surroundings and who looks after the guests, and the authenticity of the country houses are some of the reasons for the success of this type of accommodation. By awarding wheat ear categories, the experience is enhanced yet further because you know for certain what you will be encountering.
They are all over Catalonia and fall into two types:
-rural accommodation, where the owners devote themselves to attending travellers only.
-farmhouses or rural tourism houses, where the owners are farmers and livestock breeders who combine attending to travellers with working on the farm.
You can choose the one you like best from the Official Tourist Establishments Guide.
