4 Bedrooms , 4 Bathrooms , Sleeps 10
Fores, Province of Tarragona, Catalonia
Located on the outskirts of a historical picturesque farming village, which itself is situated on a mountain-top overlooking the beautiful wide valley of the Conca de Barberà in the northern limits of the province of Tarragona, where we offer you B&B-style accomodation, with self-catering option, more-or-less vegetarian and non-smoking, in a friendly and comfortable atmosphere. The Ancient Track of the 'Ruta del Cister' (GR175) runs past the front door, only 25metres from the crossing point, marked with a very ancient cross, of the GR171, which is itself a derivitory of the better-known 'Camino de Santiago' (The Route of the Cistercians is shorter (106kms), far less ardous, more shaded and pleasant, than the Santiago Trail, with some amazing views)

In the lounge you will find a scrap-book, full of information on place...

How to get there
Airport: Reus: 40.0 km
Railway: Montblanc: 15.0 km
Ferry: Tarragona: 49.0 km
By car:
The easiest is via the AP7 toll motorway south from Barcelona direction Lleida exit Montblanc then main road north C14 direction Tarrega after 11 km after Solivella right turn marked Forès. Follow Forès and on arriving in the village first you meet the pond (la Bassa) and make us a lost call to 617 47 28 79 or 693 77 66 30 and in a couple of minutes we'll be there.

By Air:
Ryanair fly to Reus, 40kms away. To get a good tariff, you should reserve more than 3 weeks in advance, and even more in mid-summer, not forgetting that the Ryanair website has tricky extras such as for each piece of luggage, and if you lose your connection, even if its their fault, they wash their hands of your problem. Arrange with us beforehand how to meet you, and we will pick you up at the airport. You...
