Renovation project - Cellers Spain and Mont Rebei Gorge
We get the directions for Mont St Rebi and start to follow them,
we both think this can’t be right, we are going along a mountain
track, there are no barriers at the side, with very steep drops, it
is also a 2 way road and we pray that nothing comes the other way. We
are almost half way there when we stop and seriously consider how
much we want to visit this place the track is full of pot holes and
not safe and our car is heavily loaded.
We give up and see if we can find it another way.
We drive through a couple of towns and get on to real roads again
and then we have passed it, I can see the ravine where I think it is
but we cannot find it any where (even thought there are plenty of
signs pointing to it!)
we get directions and still don't find it, then just as we give up
we see the smallest sign with an arrow, this is becoming something
akin to the search for the holy grail.
We turn and follow the sign and discover we are on another
mountain track, but this time we continue, we will get to this bloody
attraction if it kills us (and at this point there is a good chance
it will either kill us or at the very least the suspension of the
We get to the end of the track and there is a sign to the car
park, I get out and have a look, but it is far too steep for our
loaded car, at this point we give up, we can also hear the rumbles of
thunder and the idea of driving round the mountain in a storm is not
appealing, we do get to take some photos of the beginning of the
gorge and you can see just how beautiful it will be.
Here is a link to the actual gorge and if you ever make it let me know
Back to the hotel and we change for dinner, again we have a super
sized aperitif (I am not sure how many of these I will be able to
take, the size of my gin and tonic is unbelievable)
Dinner is magnificent and I would highly recommend the half board
at this hotel, we have never been half board before and to be honest
I had no idea I had booked half board here, but I am not complaining.
