The Reliquier is a beautiful country house in the historic centre of Vallfogona de Ripolles. Its privileged location gives us magnificient views over a unique natural surrounding and at the same time it is the perfect place to start hiking or mountain biking, or simply seek peace and quiet. It is ideal to stroll and discover the town with enormous charm.
Dating from 1794, the house has two separate apartments with common access to the garden and pool. The original structure has been respected, trying not to alter its genuine essence. Its interior and decoration is made of natural materials, respecting its country character and giving it a chic vintage touch with shabby influences. Our aim is to make our guests feel at home, enjoy their stay and live it as a unique experience in itself.
The Reliquier should be rented entirely per house or one of the houses separately but in its whole, without catering. However, at arrival guests will receive a little gift that will make their stay more comfortable. Besides, there are two restaurants in the town which offer typical food of fresh products from the area.
The Abril House has got 2 double bedrooms (in one of them could stay a third guest if wished), a bedroom for children, (with bulk bed) a complete bathroom, a living-room with a fireplace, and a dining-room annex kitchen. In total there would be accommodation for 7 people.
The Bruna House is a charming apartment, like a studio with its own kitchen and bathroom. It has accommodation for 3 persons (2 adults and a child). They both have heating. There is a common hall to the garden and the swimming pool with a small bathroom at the side.
A Reliquier used to be very small building which used to be next to the churches where villagers conjured storms and evil spirits in old times. In Vallfogona, close to the old temple of Sant Julià is still a Reliquier (in Catalan), a small building of the 17thC, which collapsed in the 80s, but it was rebuilt in 1985, using many of the original parts.
We wanted to make a modest tribute to this type of building, forgotten today, almost magical and moving.
