Why come to Casa Leonardo? >

A comfortable house with character

Casa Leonardo has 10 comfortable and cozy rooms, all of which have been carefully decorated. Depending on your needs, book a single or double room, each with its own private bathroom and a selection of 100% natural cosmetics.

Beyond your room, Casa Leonardo takes you on a journey through time in every corner of the house. Every detail has been carefully thought out to transport you back to the last century. Let yourself be transported back to the village life of the early 20th century in this former boarding house that has retained its original layout. The small café, the grocery store and the inn have been preserved.

Casa Leonardo also offers you to take all your meals on the spot:

  • In the morning, it is a breakfast with jams, homemade cakes, sausages and local cheeses that awaits you at the table;
  • For lunch, you can order a picnic if you are going on a hike;
  • In the evening, a seasonal menu with appetizer, traditional dish typical of the region and homemade dessert awaits you.

Warm and welcoming communal areas

Here are some common areas that you can enjoy at your leisure during your stay at Casa Leonardo:

  • The terrace. Pleasant in the spring, shaded for the hot summer days and allowing you to admire the flamboyant autumn leaves coming off the trees, the terrace will seduce you in any season;
  • The old kitchen. This is a real place to live by the fire and is ideal for discussions and meetings;
  • The living room. If you want to sit comfortably by the fire with a book or watch a movie, then head for the living room;
  • The dining room. This is where you will have your meals. Casa Leonardo will take you on a journey to your plate, offering traditional Catalan cuisine made with fresh, seasonal products, with a focus on organic farming! The old store. Take the time to contemplate the old counter on which the boxes of bulk products, the coffee grinder and the old scales still stand;
  • The bar-cafe is a gathering point for the locals and where the village comes alive. Feel like a friendly moment to chat or play a board game? Then sit down at the bar, order a glass of local wine, accompanied by a platter of local charcuterie and cheese.

What to do around this ecological hotel in Catalonia? >

Nature, gastronomy and culture are on the agenda of your stay in the province of Lleida in the Catalan Pyrenees.

Here is a small selection of the essential activities that await you around Casa Leonardo:

  • The Gorges of Mount Rebei. This wildlife refuge is discovered along an old mule track and offers a wild environment, without roads or railroads. Expect spectacular views of the Pyrenees, especially along the route to the summit of the Montsec nature reserve. It is also a privileged place to admire a large number of birds, including griffon vultures, golden eagles and bearded vultures.
  • The lake of Montcortès. It is the only lake in the Pyrenees that is not glacial in origin, fed by an internal spring. This beautiful and peaceful body of water is accessible on foot from Casa Leonardo;
  • The National Game Reserve of Boumort, a 13,100 hectare area of preserved nature in the western Catalan Pre-Pyrenees. Home to a rich fauna, you may be lucky enough to see chamois, capercaillie, black woodpeckers or red foxes.
  •  The Dark Valley or Vall Fosca. Framed by imposing summits reaching 3000 meters of altitude, the valley shelters more than 30 natural lakes. As you can imagine, it is a real paradise for hiking enthusiasts; 
  • The cable car of Vall Fosca. 
  • The National Park of Aigüestortes and the Estany de Sant Maurici, the only national park in Catalonia, with 200 lakes and rivers;
  • The Catalan Romanesque churches of the Vall de Boí.
Casa Leonardo's ecological commitment >

Strong environmental values

Professionalism, consistency, transparency, attention to detail and passion are the founding values of Casa Leonardo.

More than just a sustainable rural home, the vocation of the place is regenerative with:

  • Year-round services and employment;
  • The challenge to improve the local landscape;
  • The mission to generate a positive social and environmental impact for the population and the local environment.

In addition, Casa Leonardo offers ecotourism experiences based on the preservation of historical heritage, respect for the environment and traditional agriculture.

Several local projects have been designed and promoted by the owner of Casa Leonardo:

  • "el Cinquè Llac", a five-day hiking route of more than 100 km. The circular route aims to give the visitor a global vision of the territory, teaching unknown landscapes, lost stories and local indigenous cuisine, while promoting public transportation;
  • " Gratitud Pallars," an initiative that aims to offset CO2 emissions in local environmental projects;
  • " Senterada Comestible", a participatory vegetable garden to enrich the community with the revival of the orchard tradition and the use of wild edible plants.

A committed accommodation

Casa Leonardo works on sustainability and goes even further by acting for a positive impact of tourism on the environment and the communities.

Here are some examples of the actions we have taken in this regard:

  • Reduction of negative environmental and social impacts (selective waste management systems, water saving, energy efficiency, local sourcing);
  • Reduction of the carbon footprint of visitors (optimization of means of transport, organization of multi-day ecotourism trips, local markets);
  • Valuation of heritage and compensation of the carbon footprint through the "Gratitud Pallars" initiative;
  • Geographical redistribution of tourism to avoid mass tourism linked to seasonality;
  • Visitor awareness and communication about regenerative values and practices.

Thanks to all these commitments, Casa Leonardo has obtained the Ecolabel certification and the Distinctive Guarantee of Environmental Quality of Catalonia (DGQA).
