Renovation project - Cellers Spain and Mont Rebei Gorge

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 car!)

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.
