Beside the Sierra Fontanella, the rural hotel Mas Fontanelles is a farmhouse over two centuries old, surrounded by a garden covering more than 6,000 square metres with ancient pines. It was refurbished in the year 2001 and turned into a hotel establishment. This restoration has conserved the house’s character, keeping its original structure of wooden beams, but without foregoing the features and services of comfortable accommodation. Every space, every corner has been designed for enjoying rest, peace and tranquillity.
The environment is a true nature and we are gratified with splendid panoramic views where you can enjoy numerous roads crossing the mountains, we make suggestions hiking, biking or horseback, by virtue of being in the field.
Isabel and Roberto, the Mas Fontenelles’ proprietors, welcome their guests in a roomy, cheerful vestibule which leads into the restaurant, to the gardens, to the living rooms, to the library or to the guest rooms on the upper floors.
Six of the eight rooms have attics, one of them has terrace, two others have balconies and an amusing dais with and extra bed. Each bedroom has been named after a fruit-tree: manzano (apple-tree), naranjo (orange tree), cerezo (cherry tree), viña (vine), ciruelo (plum tree), peral (pear tree), albaricoquero (apricot tree) and higuera (fig tree).
Stays provide magnificent views over the greenery of the large pine forest surrounding the farmhouse, or over the Benejama Valley dotted with olive trees, almond trees and pines and where the sunset is spectacular.
