The Local Area
Riba Roja D’Ebre is located halfway along a picturesque 13 kilometre stretch of the Ebro, between the large hydroelectric dam up river and the smaller one downriver at Flix. Ebro Mad Cats is based about a mile away from this small, friendly village with its range of bars, restaurants and shops – ideal for stocking up on provisions or relaxing after a day on the river. If you can tear yourself away from the fishing, this is a great area to explore with plenty of interesting flora and fauna to be found in the Sebes National Park (opposite EMC HQ to the Flix dam) and beautiful Mediterranean beaches just a 45min car ride away.

Our Casita is situated less than 100 meters from the Ebro, and our caravan is a stones throw from the waters edge too. Just check out our accommodation page for more info. Our land is private, meaning you can visit the village bars or stroll to your accommodation for a bite to eat any time you like, safe in the knowledge your swim will be waiting for you on your return.
The budget airlines make this area easily accessible at really amazing prices. The closest airport is Reus (about one hour by car) and Ryanair fly here from many U.K. airports. Barcelona and Zaragoza (both about two and a half hours away by car) are also budget destinations. We can arrange airport transfers for you to and from Reus and Barcelona.
If you are hiring a car then we can provide detailed instructions of how to find us from the village, alternatively if you wanted to catch the train from Barcelona El Prat airport this involves one change at Barcelona Sants, and we can also provide instructions for this.
