Marc was very friendly. He couldn't be there when we got into town, but he gave us very good instructions on how to find the 'apartment' and we met him the next morning.
This place is a real adventure--"14th Century Gothic Palace" is certainly no typo. It was fascinating to stay here and explore the different rooms and floors of the palace. Marc is in the process of renovating this house, which is itself fascinating to observe, and his cheerful and thorough explanation of his renovations and the history of the structure was worth the stay in itself.
This *is* a 14th century palace under renovation, so there is no A/C or wifi, but what it may lack in modern creature comforts it more than makes up for in architectural beauty and historical interest--after all, how many AirBnB rentals share a wall with a historical town church that dates from 1370? If you get a chance to visit Cardona, skip the Parador and stay here instead!
Wonderful hosts in a charming village. Well appointed, well equipped room! The town is small, with the closest supermarket being a few towns over, however, there are drinks and snacks made available for purchase at a reasonable price. The town has two restaurants in the main square which are both good value and a great small town atmosphere. If you are looking for a good place to relax at night after busy days of activity, Monells is a great place!
Gothic Palace is defitely worth a visit. This time was my second and hopefully not the last, Marc and the other people around are great company and the house is spectacular as well as the region has a let to offer, also with regards to wine and dining. Hope to see you soon :).
Una molt bona experiencia. El palau esta al centre centre de Cardona, té molt encant, l'habitació neta, calenta i el Marc ha estat molt acollidor. Molt agust!
The apartment was quite an interesting adventure! Marc was an excellent host--very good at communicating and showed us all around the place upon arrival. It was quite funky and cool to explore the building and we loved the rooftop terrace. The room itself was very rudimentary (XL futon mattress on a wooden frame for a bed) and not super clean but it was worth it for the overall experience. Cardona was a beautiful old city to stop on our trip north from Montserrat and Marc gave us great recommendations for eating and activities in town.
It is an adventure, not only a bed for the night! be prepared to conquer the historic place! The bathroom is a new one - the all the other rooms vary between site and improvisation - parking place for the car is not in the historic old town.
Marc is a very friendly one!
What can I say, we had an amazing time in Marcs place. He is the perfect host. It is a place that has to be experienced first hand, as you really are stepping back in time. If you are in the slightest way creative or artistic this place should not be missed. A truely Gothic experience which I highly recommend.
Well done Marc, I hope you make it over to Galway sometime!!
