The landscape around Can Banal is in a rural and peacful environment with rivers and forests that changes colors depending on the season. In autumn there are varieties of mushrooms and in spring many types of orquids and butterflies to enjoy. It is situated between a triangle area composted by the villages Montagut, Castelfullit de la Roca and Oix. Located midway between the sea (45 min) and the high mountains of the Pyrenees (1h) makes it possible for many types of day-trips like Besalu, the Garrotxa Volcanic Park or Olot. Within a 6 km drive, Sadernes can be reached, from where the wonderful trekking path towards Sant Aniol d'Aguja starts.
