For those who love sport aside from putting and chipping, however, the Lavida Hotel is also ideal. From here you can cycle along the beautiful landscape directly from the resort, along the Costa Brava cycle path, or along the 45-kilometres Carrilet cycle path from Olot to Girona on the abandoned railway line. The bikes can be hired directly at the hotel, in all sizes and for all needs. Or you can enjoy the 25-metres outdoor pool and the hotel’s own ultra- modern fitness centre, go fishing, play tennis or padel with the short rackets … And those who are looking for happiness on the back of a horse can ride to the Castell de Sant Iscle castle or to the Torre d’en Llobet tower.
Chilling in the king-size bed, a cosy evening at the bar or on the roof terrace of the Lavida Hotel or a visit to Bella’s restaurant provides some rest from all these physical challenges. Here you can find not only re gional, seasonal delicacies – the vegetables are also freshly picked from the resort’s own garden. And while guests exercise during the day, the pizza dough can comfortably ferment at Bella’s following the hotel’s own secret recipe – for an unforgettable Italian pizza!
