Hotel Els Caçadors is located in the outlying area of Maçanet de Cabrenys, in an area with exuberant plant life through which a stream runs.
It is an ideal place for people seeking peace and quiet, relaxation and cooler weather to spend their holiday in nature and, at the same time, allowing those who wish to do so to enjoy the cultural and heritage offer found in the Empordà region.
Hiking and Mountain Biking
Maçanet de Cabrenys is in the area of Salines-Bassegoda, between the Alt Empordà and the Alta Garrotxa regions. This area, with its abundant plant life, is the meeting place between the inland Pyrenees and the Mediterranean and offers some of the most notable signposted paths in Catalonia for hikers as well as for mountain bikers, and includes a BTT centre with a point of welcome in Maçanet. The GR11 is worthy of a mention, the long-distance path that crosses the Pyrenees from the Mediterranean to the Atlantic and that goes through Maçanet on its 42nd stage. This route is perfect for hikers, whether doing just one stage or a route covering several days.
Around the hotel
Maçanet de Cabrenys has a very valuable natural heritage, ideal to be enjoyed with all the family.
With plenty of signposted routes, you can plan excursions with any level of difficulty, on foot or by bicycle, departing from and arriving at the hotel.
There are plenty of springs, gorges and huge trees.
Figueres, the Dalí Theatre-Museum
A visit to the Dalí Theatre-Museum in Figueres, just over 20 km from the hotel, where you will find the work of the recognised Empordà surrealist painter, Salvador Dalí, is essential.
However, Figueres is also a town with a dynamic, lively shopping centre and an intense cultural life, which holds trade fairs and events throughout the year and contains other interesting museums such as the Toy Museum, making it worthwhile programming a full day's excursion.
The Exile Museum and Route
The area in which the hotel is located, very close to the French border, was one of the scenes for the exile of the Republicans, of which you will find diverse testimonies, in the form of routes, museums and monuments.
The Empordà DO concentrates a large number of its wine cellars and vines in the Albera region, near the hotel.
You can visit the most emblematic wine cellars, stroll through the vineyards, see the bodegas and taste wines which, in recent years, have become recognised on the market.
