How to get here

Tremp is in Catalunya in north-eastern Spain a couple of hours south of the borders with France and Andorra and two and a half hours from Barcelona. You will need a car if visiting the region although if happy to walk in the area surrounding the village I can arrange a pick up from the bus or train station in Tremp

The nearest airports are Barcelona el Pratt and Reus both approximately two and a half hours drive away. Girona is aproximately 3 hours away.

The journey from Barcelona airport takes between 2.5 and 3 hours. From the airport follow the signs for Barcelona, but at the first opportunity (after two signs?) Take the road to Lleida, the A2. (Do not go in the direction of Castelldefels). Stay on the A2 which divides into two, keep right on the A2 at this time and follow the signs for Lleida and Zaragoza (do not take the AP2 toll motorway as it is much longer). The road continues as the dual carriageway or three lanes for most of the distance to a city called Tarrega, 1 to 1 and 1/2 hours from the airport. Near Tarrega take the turn off the A2 to Balaguer. Just before Balaguer and just past a place called La Rapita take C148a. This leads to a round a bout with a first aid post on the corner and a sign for Tremp on the right, take the main road C26 in the direction of La Seu d ‘Urgell and Andorra. After 2 km turn left towards Tremp, the C13. This road takes you to Tremp through the Montsec Mountains and spectacular Terradets gorge. (1 ¼ hours from Balaguer to Santa Engracia.)  On reaching Tremp, go straight across the roundabout, stay on this road and go through Tremp. After approximately 2kms north of Tremp after a sharp bend you will see Santa Engracia clearly signposted 10kms (Do not take a previous turn to Talarn). It takes about 15 minutes to reach Santa Engracia parking from here . Note nav sat does not work very well in this area and google maps sends you completely on the wrong path. Once you reach the village it is not possible to drive to the house. A street with concrete with a decorative row of stones in the centre rises in the village, although the houses can not be seen from the parking lot. (Above the village font  some concrete steps and a rough path lead to some properties on a hill but this is not the path you want). If you are able to text about an hour before arrival on my mobile phone  I will be able to meet guests  with the quad and trailer to help them to the house. The road rises about 300m and Casa Mauri is towards the end of the village street on the left with a sign  beside the front door. There is a vine at the front of the house.
