Accommodation

Enclosed within the ancient walls of the town of La Llacuna, Cal Tunet Spa Rural was built in the early 1800’s. It was originally intended for use as a family house. At the beginning of 2012, the current owners began the refurbishments to convert it into a rural tourist residence.

Complete refurbishments of the property were carried out at different stages in order to preserve the original architecture maintaining it as an attractive townhouse and providing it with all the necessary amenities and services for the guests to enjoy maximum comfort during their stay. The latest design in thermal spas was built in the basement of the house, to ensure maximum relaxation, privacy, and comfort to the guests.

The house is located in the middle of a small staired street, next to the road to Rofes. Just 25 meters from Cal Tunet Spa Rural, there is a parking area at the side of the road.

Program

Day 1: Vilafranca del Penedés - La Llacuna (36 miles / 57.5 kilometers)

On the first day, you will leave Vilafranca del Penedés in the direction of La Llacuna, a mountain post town that you will surely love. To get there, you will pass through typical villages of the Penedès, like Guardiola de Font-Rubí, where you will climb to the highest point, the Balcony of the Penedès, a place where you can take the opportunity to enjoy the best views of the plain. LetsVelo will make this day more peaceful so that you can still ascend to Montserrat with enough strength. During the tour, Parés Baltà, Caves Colet, Torres winery and Can Suriol will be available to visit, as today’s itinerary goes ahead.

You will be staying at Cal Tunet Spa Rural, where apart from the comfort of its rooms and common spaces, you can also enjoy its spa circuit.

Day 2: La Llacuna - Mountains of Montserrat - La Llacuna (72 miles / 116.5 kilometers)

Once there, you can visit the monastery and enjoy the rich heritage and natural place. Then you will go back to La Llacuna.

  • Accommodation: Cal Tunet Spa Rural
  • Gradient: 2880 meters

Notes: You can upgrade your tour with a support and provisioning van.

Bike

A big part of what makes a good route is the bicycle. So, LetsVelo relies on excellence and collaboration of Cicles Sans - Specialized Concept Store for their routes. Collection and delivery of bicycles are available on request.

Tarmac SL4

The Tarmac doesn’t do one thing well, it does everything exceptionally - which is why it’s been ridden to victory in all three Grand Tours. The Tarmac’s advanced materials add a modern edge to the lively character of a classic race bike, while its Rider-First Engineered design ensures that the Tarmac sprints, corners, and descends with uniform excellence across every size.

Roubaix SL4

Named for one of the sport’s most storied and demanding races, the Roubaix is built to excel on the worst roads and in nasty conditions. Smoother is faster, so the Roubaix’s carbon construction is designed to maximize vertical compliance, while Zertz inserts and a CG-R seatpost work to absorb road chatter. To make the Roubaix feels stable and comfortable on the longest of rides, the frame is built with the endurance geometry.

Amira

Sure, you train hard and eat right, but there’s just one thing missing - an edge. The Amira gives you two. First, there’s the performance edge you get from its FACT carbon frame and tapered head tube. The combination results in responsive handling and true get-up-and-go accelerations. Then comes the psychological edge - the feeling that, when teamed up with a lightweight, high-performance machine, there’s no limit to what you can achieve together.

Included excursions

  • Enjoying the view of the plain from the Balcony of the Penedès
