Route through the Alt Penedès: Water pools, vineyards and a giant chair!

On route through Alt Penedes, a region that surprises us with its water and greenery

Alt Penedes is synonymous with nature, vineyards, good cava and water, lots of water.

After this time of seclusion by Covid, nature and all the activities we can do outdoors are more attractive than ever. For us this is the first Post-Covid outing, and we would never have hit the target better. After confinement we have tried to reconnect with the natural environment and this getaway has made it possible. We present our route through the Alt Penedes by motorhome, although you can do it by car or your own vehicle staying at multiple rural houses.

The best of the motorhome route through the Alt Penedès

  • Nature in all its splendor. Make beautiful routes with waterfalls, bridges, caves, water pools and natural gorges ...
  • Discover incredible pools of water such as Sant Quintí de Mediona where water is born as a thing of magic
  • Sleep in places in the middle of nature away from the crowds
  • The Penedes motorhome areas, free and with all services, except electricity. They are 9, 5 out of 10.
  • The security that is breathed in these small towns.
  • Families that we have met along the way and with whom we have shared adventures such as @Xino Xano_AC

The worst of the motorhome route through the Penedes

  • Incidents that we have had, such as seeing that the front skylight was pitted without having had any accident or mishap.
  • The rural roads through which our rural GPS sometimes takes us, but that makes us discover spectacular places (everything has a good part)
  • The heat in the motorhome service areas that most do not have much shade. Luck of the Viesa.
  • The overcrowding in Sant Quintí de Mediona of motorhomes. The area was very very crowded even around.
  • The night that the young people of St Pere de Riudebitlles gave us with the large bottle that was mounted next to the motorhome area. We were on the verge of partying with them! hehehe

      This summer will undoubtedly be a summer to go to places little crowded and cool with water 🙂
