Maria, the Godmother. Who brought us here ...

For as long as it can remember, Casa Marxant has always served meals and offered beds to visitors who stopped by.

Marxant inn

Already at the age of 7, right after the war, Maria was already helping her mother in the kitchen preparing the trinxat, the escudella or the pig confit served to the guests who frequented the inn in those days; neighbors of Noarre, families and Jewish refugees fleeing Nazism crossing the Port of Tavascan from France, and some half-lost merchant...

Later, entrepreneurs and textile traders from Barcelona arrived at inn to spend a few days in the mountains. They were the beginnings of a still very nascent tourism.

Hotel Marxant

Well into the 50s, a short circuit burns down the inn and the family moves to live in a garage. The future Hotel Marxant will be located here, in the current building where we are now.

Coinciding with the beginnings of the construction of the hydroelectric plant, Maria's father makes the change from inn to Hotel. They are the golden years. The construction of the power station brings thousands of workers to the valley and the road reaches the village!

With the road, little by little, tourism definitely arrived in the town and the Hotel began to receive visitors and tourists as its main customers. Adventure sports and hiking are now the reason for visiting.

In these last decades, Ricard, Maria's youngest son, has been at the head of the business. Renovating all the rooms and modernizing the hotel to find it as it is today. Without his dedication Casa Marxant would not be what it is today.

Betting on close and exclusive treatment, it makes staying at the hotel a complete experience.

We are Duilio, Argentinian from Mar de Plata and Barbara, Catalan from Valldoreix. We are a couple in love with the Pyrenees of Lleida and especially Tavascan in the Cardós Valley.

We have been living in this paradisiacal landscape with our three children for more than 10 years and this year we have decided to embark on the mission of running the Hotel Marxant.
