Vilalte is a small but spacious hamlet situated on the South-facing slopes of the massif of Mount Canigou at an altitude of 920m offering breath-taking views over the surrounding mountains and hills.
It is only a mile away from the famous GR10, the Pyrenees track connecting the Mediterranean Sea with the Atlantic Ocean and it takes only three hours to reach Vilalte from Barcelona centre.
Vilalte is situated at the end of a one mile long private drive, 10km away from the small village of Corsavy. Due to its isolated position, no noise but the sounds of nature are to be heard and the most beautiful starry skies can be seen, a gift of the absence of light pollution by night.
Wild boars, Pyrenees vultures, eagles and many other wild life can be seen here in addition to a great diversity of botanical species.
The ancient stone buildings dating back to the 16 hundreds, have been totally renovated and restored to provide a comfortable stay to guests throughout the year.
The hamlet consists of a large mansion house and renovated barn, a newly constructed, spacious, 150 m2 large wooden building (yoga/mediation hall) with a grass roof and infra-red heating and five other smaller buildings, one of which is used by the owners.
