Surroundings of Vall Hostoles

The village of Sant Feliu de Pallerols, located 475 meters above sea level, has an urban center with streets and centuries-old houses that remind us of its medieval roots. Nowadays, together with the towns of Sant Iscle de Colltort and San Miguel de Pineda, is a vital and dynamic municipality, open to modernity with all the services it requires, but at the same time respectful of its past and natural beauty of its surroundings. With little more than a thousand inhabitants, it is a town full of charm, noble and welcoming, with a long tradition as a tourist destination.

The valley of Hostoles, which gives its name to the campsite, is green and exuberant, generous and welcoming, and is watered by the crystal clear waters of the Brugent River, which, leaving behind a string of beautiful waterfalls, finally flows into the river Ter. Upholstery of crops, meadows and forests, embellished by noble farmhouses and presided over by mystic sanctuaries, the landscape balances harmoniously between Mediterranean and alpine, two landscape and climatic zones that are twinned in our beautiful valley..

The Valley of Hostoles extends between three geographic spaces of great natural and scenic interest: the Natural Park of the Volcanic Zone of La Garrotxa, the Area of Natural Interest of the Collsacabra (also called Cabrerès), and the Llémena Valley. It limits by the north with the towns of Les Preses, Santa Pau, and the capital of the area, Olot; on the south with the Planes d'Hostoles and with a part of Osona (Rupit and Pruit), and on the east with Sant Aniol de Finestres. You can reach everywhere on foot through fantastic paths and breathtaking landscapes.

Certainly, the volcanic surroundings of the Garrotxa have always appealed to painters of nature, who have found the way of capturing the innumerable nuances of this pre- Pyrenees area, the forms and colours of the mountains and cultivated fields, of the little villages and farm houses, the lights and shadows of the lit and un-lit parts, of the forests and streams. And as recurring background to their works, there stands the majestic stony presence of Puigsacalm, the main wall of the Baixa Garrotxa.

The walker that enters on the side of the Collsacabra plateau, reveals a walled paradise of cliffs and precipices, where the stone becomes sculpture, the landscape becomes an immense manger and the horizons expand to infinity.
