Can Gelis enjoys a central but peaceful location within the town, with shops, a small supermarket, a rotisserie shop, restaurants and the municipal swimming pool (less than five minutes' walk away) nearby. Les Preses also makes an ideal base for exploring the area, either on foot or by bicycle. The Girona-Olot cycle track is an excellent option for cycling enthusiasts. In the neighbouring area we have La Vall d'en Bas, the home of emblematic towns such as Hostalets, Joanetes and El Mallol and, in the other direction, we have Olot, where you can visit La Fageda d'en Jordà and a number of volcanoes, such as Sta. Margarida, Montsacopa and Croscat, all of which are easily accessible.
Local festival: 12 October
