Art nouveau route in Olot
Ballooning, the experience to be lived
It is a cultural and recreational proposal in the Garrotxa region for a full weekend. Art nouveau route in Olot, a good dinner, rest in a three-star hotel and a balloon flight!
ART NOUVEAU ROUTE IN OLOT
In the afternoon you will have a guided visit to the Olot city center to contemplate the city’s most important Art Nouveau houses built during a period when Olot was alive with intellectual debate. Then, you continue on to Passeig de Barcelona and the Eixample Malagrida New Town, a good example of a garden city.
LA QUINTA JUSTA RESTAURANT
In the evening, your evening meal will be in the restaurant Quinta Justa, where a truly ‘symphonic’ menu and a blend of musical notes reflect this restaurant’s philosophy of proximity and attention to detail.
Intimacy for couples, reserved for meetings and celebrations, the terrace to enjoy the refreshing summer nights and a quiet and pleasant atmosphere in the large living room make up the 4 spaces of the restaurant, located in a modernist house in the center of Olot.
At night, you will stay at the Hotel Estació. It is a 3-star hotel, with modern and comfortable rooms, located on the banks of the River Fluvià. The accommodation is located five minutes from the historic city center and the commercial area.
It has 16 rooms, all with air conditioning, TV, free Wi-Fi and an elegant private bathroom. Each bedroom has wooden floors and walls, while the beds have a latex mattress and high-quality cotton sheets.
Dinner is not included but within walking distance of the accommodation there is a wide variety of restaurants to choose from.
The Estación hotel is about 10 minutes by car from our facilities.
The next day a spectacular activity awaits you: A hot-air balloon enjoying the landscape of La Garrotxa Volcanic Zone Natural Park.
Once at Vol de Coloms facilities, between 7 a.m and 8 a.m (according to the season), have a cup of coffee and some pastry as you participate in the preparation of the flight: the setting and inflation of the hot-air balloon.
All our baskets have a door so, they are accessible to all kind of public.
The balloon flight lasts about 1h 30 min and, during the trip, we enjoy a glass of cava and a slice of a savoury local cake, coca de llardons, as we contemplate the wonderful 360º view from the balloon.
Once back on solid ground, our ground team, who have been following our flight, pick us up in a 4×4 vehicle and take us to enjoy a hearty cooked breakfast of bread and tomato, Santa Pau haricot beans and botifarra a catalan national dish, desserts from Cooperativa la Fageda, wine and ratafia, a local herbal liquor.
Finally, we give you a flight diploma signed by the pilot.
Enjoy this proposal!
