Drive past Mieres, staying on the same road. You will see the church and the restaurant Can Met on the left hand side.
Several hundred metres after Can Met, go straight on past a left turn towards the sports centre (signed Zona Esportiva) and after a further 500 metres, where the road curves to the right, you will find an unmade road on the left hand side, signposted for Mas Planella. The unmade road climbs the hill towards a cluster of four or five buildings, one larger than the others. Take this road. The large building is Mas Planella.
