Our finca covers an area of 3 hectares (about 7.5 acres). It is a working farm growing olives, almonds and carobs. We also have fig trees and many grape vines from which I make our own wine. We are trying to be as self-sufficient as possible and make enough produce to be able to sell at local markets.
We are close to beaches, mountains, the River Ebro, many vineyards, sites of historical interest, museums, and breathtaking scenery.
There is something in the region for everyone throughout the entire year. If you visit us in early February you will see the almond blossom in full bloom. The scent fills the entire countryside. Or you may like to visit in September and October when we harvest the almonds; take some home with you and see if you can save some for Christmas. Then again you may like to visit us between November and February when we harvest the olives. Collect some for yourself and we'll take you to an olive press so that you can see the olives being pressed and then take the oil home with you. Springtime is magical with the incredible array of wildflowers that grow everywhere. And of course summer is a great time to come and spend time in the fresh air and beautiful weather we have here. Whatever your reason for coming here it is a great base to explore some of the best parts of Spain.
This is a perfect spot for groups of friends, couples or big families to explore the Costa Dorada and Ebre Delta. There are Roman remains in Tortosa & Tarragona and the Els Ports Park Natural park is not far and has walking, climbing and mountain biking opportunities. If you want flat cycling you can hire our bikes or get some on the Delta itself.
The Ebro Delta area has just been added to the Man and Biosphere program by UNESCO. It is a huge wetland area teeming with wild birds and butterflies whilst at the same time supporting both agriculture, mainly in the form of rice production, and tourism.
There are all types of beaches as close as a 10min some large and deserted some busy with bars and ice-cream available.
All the coastal villages have many bars and restaurants with a wide selection of local and international dishes.
There are potteries, castles, Roman history to visit, vineyards and museums to wander round. The River Ebro and coastal cruises are worth doing and the Honey centre in El Perello has guided tours all year.
Our finca is a marvelous place to explore, there are 300 trees to climb or sit under, hammocks to lie in and plenty of places to play hide and seek for children. It covers 3 hectares which is 30,000 sq metres or around 7.5 acres (big enough to park 1000 cars ... but please don´t)

The Lodge has it's own kitchen and dining area with each bedroom having it's own front door and terrace plus an additional main terrace outside the kitchen/dining area. The Lodge also caters for wheelchair users, having one bedroom that has ramp access and a larger open shower area in the en-suite than the other bedrooms. There is also easy access into the kitchen/diner, the main terrace and to the BBQ area. The finca itself is fairly flat and level so wheelchair users should not have too much difficulty in exploring the finca, though some terraces are quite stony and uneven.
The Casita has it's own terrace shaded by the leaves and fruit of old vines.
The Casa has a large roof terrace and guests are welcome to use this; however it is not supervised so very young children should not be left there unaccompanied. The swimming pool is not supervised either so very young children should be accompanied.
We live in harmony with our surroundings and try to have as low an impact on the environment as possible. This includes careful use of water and electricity. We have our own bank of solar panels from which we draw energy from the sun and this provides full domestic supply to the homes.
The Catalunia region
Tarragona was one of the major sites of Roman civilisation in Spain and has many well-preserved sites of historical interest. Closer to us is the mighty River Ebro, world- famous for it's catfish and carp fishing. The Ebro delta is a wonderful place with a great variety of wildlife and birds including hoopoes and eagles.
There is an abundance of wine producing areas such as the great Rioja. Cava is made here too. Vineyard visits are definitely worth the trip.
Venture further afield to Barcelona and see the amazing Gaudi cathedral; the Sagrada Familia, or the famous Ramblas. Barcelona can be reached by express train in under 2 hours and costs very little (unlike British Rail!).
If theme parks are your cup of tea then there is even one of those: Puerto Aventuras, which is only about 40 minutes away by car.
The climate in our area is very kind. The summers are not blisteringly hot and the winters are not freezing cold. We are situated in the south of Catalonia and have got the best climate of all of Catalonia, which itself has better weather than many of its neighbours.
Situated mid-way between Barcelona and Valencia, this is an area famous for it's rice production. The Spanish love Paella and much of Spain's rice is grown here. The region is rich in wildlife and birds and the scenery is stunning, boasting everything from high mountains to beautiful sandy beaches.
An area of outstanding natural beauty, the area is perfect for fishing, walking, mountain-biking, sightseeing or just recharging your batteries away from the stress and strain of the modern world. There are local sports centres and an indoor swimming pool only around 10km from us.
