Parador Hotel Vic - Sau
The Parador of Vic-Sau is in one of the most beautiful areas of the region of Osona with the Guillerias mountains in the background and the Sau reservoir nearby.
The peaceful surroundings are in contrast to the industrialization around the city of Barcelona.
The hotel has the atmosphere of a traditional Catalan farmhouse with a well looked after garden, bedrooms with colonnaded balconies and a magnificent swimming pool.
The rooms in the building are spacious and comfortable and the windows have exceptional views of the surrounding landscape.
The Parador's restaurant serves international dishes and has a special gluten free menu however the speciality is local dishes.

A medieval market is held in early December.

|we stayed at the parador vic-sau late in november but we were blessed with good weather, thus we had a great drive through an interesting area which otherwise we would not have visited. staff at reception were friendly and helpful, thanks to an upgrade, we did have a balcony with a view, i would not have wanted to look at what is at the back; as such we had a glorious view in the morning, which reminded me of'smoke on the water'!!! in between we had a reasonable meal and a good breakfast, so all in all an enjoyable stay, the drive to Barcelona next day, looked interesting enough, to suggest another visit to the area might be worthwhile, maybe at a time when the pool is a possibility, and walks would be possible;|

|This was our first of three Paradores in our tour of Spain during the summer of 2014. The views were spectacular. An idyllic setting if you are looking peace and tranquility. The setting is "off the beated path" so to speak with access to a histroic Monestary. The reception was warm and welcoming and the room was a suite with sitting room, bath and bedroom. As the room was at the end of hall, it was quiet with superb views of the surrounding mountains. As it is located in the mountains, there is really no place to eat other than at the Paradore, though we only had breakfast, which was exceptional. Of the three Paradores we visited, this breakfast was by far the best. We were allowed a late check out so we could use the pool in the morning which did not open until 11AM. i twould have been nice to use the pool for an early morning swim. All in all, we had a wonderful stay and would recommend this Pardore for those visiting north of Barcelona and the enchanting city of Vic.|

|We stayed just one night en route from Murcia to the south of France. We received a warm welcome and an upgrade to a balcony room at the front of the hotel. The view from the room was magnificent particularly in the morning with the swirling mists. We had the taster menu in the evening but felt afterwards that we had been a bit pushed into making that decision as no other choice was offered - it was good but not fantastic. I wish we had had a little more time to walk and explore the area. A lovely hotel in an idyllic location but getting a little bit tired.|

|I stayed in the Parador in July. My only issue was that all the road signs were for Parador Tourisme and I had written down Parador Vic-Sau. So I drove around and around very lost. By the time I arrived I was frustrated, irritated and upset. I had booked a room without a view and asked to change and for a fee, I was able to upgrade to a balcony. The second I sat down on the balcony all the tension of being lost floated away. I didn't want to leave the beautiful sunset even to eat dinner, so I just ate some snacks I had with me. The room was lovely, as was the bathroom. Like others have said, we would have liked a door on the toilet. I only stayed one night but could have stayed many more.|
