Chef Fina Puigdevall converted the ground floor of her family’s 13th-century house into one of the ‘world’s best-looking dining’ establishments with typical Garrotxa gastronomy and she added five luxury rooms where diners can spend the night. Local RCR architects took glass as their main ingredient. Even the bathrooms and as the NY-times -review said: “It might be difficult to forget that all the walls are glass, but once you realize that the neighbours can’t see in, it won’t take long to slip into the luxuriously huge four-foot-deep tub. Les Cols website: “The Pavilions offer a place to rest at night next to the restaurant Les Cols. .... where the sight and joy of the night sky acquire essential prominence. It is a night of rest. Being alone before the night and the space, sheltered within warm walls where the opaque and reflections of the glass, laminated, are mixed in a virtuous game of lights and water, to feel again aspects of nature that we thought to be forgotten.”
Restaurant open from 13:00 – 15:30 and 20:30 – 22:30 h.
Banquets by arrangement on weekdays and at weekends, including Sundays and holidays.
How to get there?
Olot is a bit off the radar of mainstream tourism, but for hungry and/or sleepy ones on the road between Bilbao and Barcelona, Les Cols is well worth a visit, even if it was only for the volcanic landscape of La Garrotxa. On the way out of town from Olot towards La Canya is Les Cols.
