About the home
‘Mi casa es tu casa’ – my father heard this in an episode of Bonanza – ‘My House is your house’. For those of a certain generation you may be remember the Cartwright family. For those under the age of thirty hopefully you get the point. We want you to enjoy our villa as much as we have done.
La Casa is a traditional Spanish house. It is a bungalow as many of the older villas are. When you enter the villa from the front you first see the sun lounge. This is spacious area where you can sit and read inside on a sunny afternoon if there is a breeze off the sea. On going through the sun lounge you enter the living room. Here there is a comfortable sitting area with sofas where in evening you can sit and have a drink and catch up on the latest events at home on Sky TV. On the opposite side of the living room you can dine in comfort inside. The centre piece of this area is a fire place. This has a brick surround and this is a particularly attractive feature. To the right of this room is a door which leads off to the bedrooms and a fully equipped bathroom. The arch to the left leads to the kitchen which is fully equipped for all your holiday requirements . A special extra in this villa is the large family room which adjoins the kitchen. Here the children can spread out there things, play games or do whatever children do on a rainy day and leave the adults to get on with whatever adults do!
Outside of the villa there is a secluded back garden which you can access through a double door in the living room. The garden has a barbecue area with a stone table and benches for lunch alfresco. There are also several mature trees – see photos 7 and 8 - which are the focal point of the garden. Further up the garden you will find the swimming pool surrounded by a seating area for sun loungers. At the front of the villa there is a small garden with a grassed lawn. Outside steps lead to the roof patio where you can sit in peace and enjoy the view or eat outside while just watching the world pass by.

The Costa Dorada/Tarragona region
Within a mile of the house there are six beaches. With walking distance of the the villa there is the local restaurant. In a radius of 10 miles there are several golf courses. There is a Ryanair service to Reus airport, which is 30 minutes away from the villa. Near Reus there is a world renowned Universal Studios theme park called Port Aventura where both children and adults enjoy the many themed attractions including a Wild West show for the children and the more restrained areas of Polynesia and China for the adults. If you're brave and like roller coasters try 'The Dragon Khan'. Further afield are Tarragona and Barcelona both accesible by train from L'Ametlla. In Tarragona there are Roman remains and an amphitheatre and a good shopping centre while Barcelona is the capital of Catalunya and is famed for Gaudi, the Nou Camp and the attractions of a big city.
To the south there is the Ebro Delta where you can take a boat trip and view the nature reserve or merely explore on foot an area covered by the biggest rice growing region in Europe. Inland there are many traditional Catalan towns such Mora d'Ebre (where there is a toy shop for desperate parents on a rainy day) and you can drive - or walk for those who are not quite so brave - up to the castle at Miravet or visit the local potteries. For those with a good appetite try the buffet at Los Planos del Rey or Cambrils (Sunday lunchtime) where you can eat as much as much as you like for a fixed price and there is plenty of choice for the children.
On Sunday morning visit the local market at Hospitalet where you can buy anything from leatherware and clothes to a pan to make paella. Prices are reasonable and most traders speak some English.
The L'Ametlla de Mar / Tres Calas area
L'Ametlla De Mar
L'Ametlla is the nearest town. It has a choice of supermarkets, a local market, beaches, a port and restaurants. This town is typical of the region and interesting. The majority of your shopping can be done here, so it is best to explore here first. The town has a number of reasonably priced restaurants where sea food is a speciality. The more adventurous of you should try the menu of the day. If you have children, there are also playgrounds near the shops and cafes and you can sit and drink coffee (or something a litte stronger if you wish) while they enjoy the sun. For those of you who like to keep in contact with home the local paper shop sells English magazines books and papers. German and French too if you wish!
The town has a post office and several banks.
