Who we are
‘L’Associació d’Allotjaments rurals de La Garrotxa’ (The Association of Rural Accomodation of the Garrotxa) was set up in November 1999. Its head office is based at Can Coromines (Maià de Moncal). It is listed in the registry of associations of the Department of Justice of the Catalan autonomous government (Generalitat) under number 4028 section 1 of the Association Registry with a fiscal ID number NIF B17684432
We decided to set up our association when we realised that other organisations were unhelpful when it came to promoting our establishments or working together with other groups. In this way we hope to meet the demand and need to promote those establishments that do not fit in the criteria demanded by rural farm house associations or by other similar associations, whether it be due to legal or political reasons, in order to achieve local, regional, national or even international representation..
We chose the name ‘Allotjament’ Accomodation differentiate ourselves from those apartments commonly available in built-up coastal areas. Despite offering a similar service, it is important to take into account the different enviroment and location of the services offered.
The name ‘Rural’ can lead to some confusion when one does not know our region or county. Being based in the Garrotxa means that the majority of the land consists of countryside made up of mainly small rural villages or hamlets and isolated farm houses, all with their own original and different styles. Our apartments are all located in this unique enviroment where guests can enjoy the peace and quiet found in these types of surroundings.
Our web page
New age technologies are improving day by day and we have found that the majority of our guests use the internet to find out about places to visit and places to stay as well as the amenities offered. We have decided to create a web page to save both time and effort when it comes to finding and choosing a suitable place to stay, as well as offering information regarding things to do or see in our region during a stay.
This web page is constantly updated and our aim is to offer prospective guests all the relevant information regarding our properties (maximum capacity, prices, availability, amenities etc) and at the same time offer clients information about the area (villages, history, volcanoes, business, tourism, cuisine, art and culture etc) as well as the availability of other activities (cultural, sporting events or hiking routes). In this way we hope to develop a close liaison between ourselves and other companies in order to offer clients special rates or advantages.
