El Prat is a space located in the old fields from Mas Les Cols. The centenarian house is where chef Fina Puigdevall Nogareda was born. We are located in Olot, in La Garrotxa Volcanic Zone Natural Park. El Prat, in particular, is placed between two volcanos: La Garrinada and Aiguanegra.
For the wedding ceremony, we offer the garden in Mas Les Cols, so that you can enjoy the front of the centenarian house where the restaurant is placed.
The garden at El Prat is perfect to have the appetizer in open air. There is a wide area covered with a roof that provides shelter from any kind of weather and the right comfort.
The roof is filtered so you can see the sky, the clouds, the moon; it is a really wonderful indoor dining room. The flower decoration that you choose will make a unique space and will create a magical atmosphere.
Restaurant Les Cols opened up a new space for celebrations according to the project of the same architects who refurbished the restaurant, RCR arquitectes (Pritzker Architecture Prize 2017). The purpose of the project was to create a piece of landscape surrounded by vegetal slopes and trees that give the feeling of an open air space. A series of spaces were created with different degrees of relationship with the outside, where to perform the different phases of the celebration: arrival, ceremony, appetizers, meal, ball, supper…
There are spaces covered with a filtered roof and are conditioned to provide shelter from any kind of weather and the right comfort.
The intention is to retrieve outdoor meetings, a meeting celebrated in the open air. In this sense, the architecture and particularly the kitchen and services equipment, are placed in a lower level in benefit of the nature, in order to make possible that from the space where the event takes place, there is no presence of any type of construction.
The guests will enjoy nature under a pergola formed by metal canes in a virtuous game of shade and light. The space makes it possible to enjoy aspects of the nature that might be forgotten and inspires a contemplative attitude towards the cycle of the day and the experience of the cycle of seasons.
To evoke the past. To meet outside, near a spring, under the shadow of a wood, the family meal at the countryside.
To evoke life in open air. To sit under the sky, to eat surrounded by air, trees, visuals, without losing the mistery that the place provides, being part from Mas Les Cols.
To evoke the culinary art. On a neutral support, almost no furniture, the colours shine bright, the flavours, the different textures, an accurate and laborious preparation for a few hours of pleasure.
To evoke the essentiality. The stone extracted from the construction goes back to the place to build the walls, slopes and floor. The steel tubes stay up and give the shape of a pergola, and the transparent membrane protect us from sun and rain.
To evoke the future. Where the virtual images and the real ones blend. It emerges from this place, but the answers are universal. Contemporary and sustainable answers.
To evoke the time passage. To notice the passage of time, the sun, the clouds, the rain, the darkness, the moon. To feel again aspects of the nature that were already forgotten.
