Cal Miquel is situated in a privileged location in the village of Anserall, 2 km away from La Seu d’Urgell, on the road to Andorra. The village lies alongside the River Valira, from which the valley takes its name, and is at an altitude of 800 m above sea level.
What used to be the old family home dates back to the year 1700 and was extended in 1865 in order for the stables and straw loft to be built. It has now been restored in its entirety so as to become a country house hotel. Inside the house, an inviting patio welcomes and offers repose to the tired traveller.
Lapin is a french illustrator, an artist, an urban sketcher based in Barcelona.
He can be defined as a mobile illustrator who carries his sketchbook and his compact sketching gear to the street, to a bar, to a metro, to Istanbul or Tokyo. Sketching is a way for him to record every second of his life and feel alive. He can sketch sitting on a floor for hours or just having a beer in his hand or just during one metro stop.
According to Lapin a good sketchbook must contain two things ; some doodles of dinosaurs and vintage cars.
