Arriving to Can Serrat:
You can ask the drivers if they are willing to drop you at Can Serrat.
3) a. If the driver drops you at Can Serrat:
You will see a small white sign on the right for Can Serrat at the entrance to our driveway. It is a steep dirt road that slopes down to the right. Make your way down the drive, approx 50 meters and the house is at the bottom to your right.
3) b. If the bus driver drops you at the bus stop in El Bruc:
Some drivers do not consider Can Serrat a proper stop and will therefore drop you in the village of El Bruc past Can Serrat. If this is the case, turn around and walk back the 500 meters until you reach the driveway entrance and the Can Serrat sign that would this time be on your left. Be careful of traffic when walking on the side of the road!
It would be great if you could aim to arrive by 12 noon, and advance notice of your arrival time is appreciated so we can coordinate someone being here to welcome and show you around.
You can book your pick-up to get to the house directly with us. The cost is 55€ if the pick-up is from the airport and 65€ if the pick-up is in the City of Barcelona. For other possibilities and/or to reserve your cab send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
