Bed & Breakfast El Ranxo is located in the greenery on top of a hill. Sitting there you really would not say that you are just a stone’s throw away from Girona airport and about 15 kilometers of the city center. The closest town is Caldes de Malavella, which supplies half of Spain with mineral water.
B&B El Ranxo, owned by Liesbeth and Cees de Bruine, has four luxury rooms with excellent bathrooms. However, what is most striking is the large and cozy common room with a large kitchen. Here you have breakfast, but you can also cook yourself. The beer is cold and if you arrive late and hungry you can always prepare one of the various and tasty Heat and Eat meals. For cyclists, this is a perfect place to come back to after a long day’s ride.
Booking.com customers almost always rate the B&B a 9 or higher.
El Ranxo is a perfect base camp for cyclists that prefer a quiet atmosphere. Mountain bike trails run past the B&B and training cyclists have many quiet roads to choose from in the area. For those seeking a more leisurely ride, the via verde Olot-San Feliu (the most beautiful via verde in Spain) is not far away, which is a two-day cycle from Olot to the coast. El Ranxo’s proximity to the via verde makes it a convenient play to stay.
A few more practical things…
- Caldes de Malavella has a direct train connection to the city of Barcelona
- If you bring your own bike with you on the plane, Liesbeth and Cees (for a modest fee) will arrange transport to and from the airport
