Manna House Lodge
House | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 10
This property consists of 5 bedrooms with their own self-catering lounge, kitchen and barbecue area. It is set on a working olive, almond and carob finca (farm) in the beautiful Spanish countryside 15 minutes from some wonderful beaches.
Each bedroom has it's own en-suite bathroom and has underfloor heating, ensuring that bare feet will still feel warm in winter on those beautiful floor tiles.
All the gas that we use is bottled butane and is very clean. All electricity is full domestic supply and is powered entirely by the sun through our own bank of solar panels. We also have our own borehole for water which is 230m deep, ensuring clean fresh water all year.
The finca is a wonderful place to explore and has a multitude of places where you can feel completely alone and find that quiet moment to catch up on your favourite book or just enjoy some sunbathing.
We encourage our guests to use water wisely. It is such a precious resource and we try to be as efficient as possible with its use; for example we use the water from the washing up to water the trees outside the casita and we encourage people not to leave taps running while brushing their teeth or their hands.
The swimming pool is at the side of the Casita and has it's own sun terrace. The pool is not supervised so very young children should not be allowed to play there without being accompanied.

We have dedicated 1 bedroom here for disabled visitors as full wheelchair access is available both to the bedroom, the en-suite with its open shower area and to the kitchen/dining area, the BBQ area and the large terrace in front. This bedroom also has its own wheelchair-friendly terrace which is also excellent for families with small children as this terrace is completely enclosed.
We can arrange a combination of beds in the rooms to suit your own needs and have additional beds should you require 3 in one room for example to cater for small children.
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.
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 olive 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)
|Further details outdoors|
Our finca is a marvellous place for children to explore, there are many trees to climb, plenty of places to play hide and seek and we have chickens and ducks to amuse them as well as our 4 lovely dogs.
There are hammocks hidden away around the finca so have a look, find one and enjoy some "you" time.
We do require a security deposit of €250 for Lodge bookings. This is to be paid prior to your holiday to insure against loss or damage. With the best will in the world accidents do happen and we need to make sure everyone is covered for this from the outset.
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.

"A fantastic, relaxing and comfortable place to stay."
We had a great time staying at Manna House. Simon and Amanda were very welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed throughout our stay. The rooms were extremely comfortable and with the kitchen, BBQ area, pool and lots of places to sit and relax amongst the olive trees, we couldn't have asked for more.
We are both very happy to have met you all and to know that your holiday with us was as much a pleasure for you as it was for us. We wish you the best of luck with your plans for the future and if you are ever back this way again we wold be delighted to see you. It was great to hear of all the trips you made, especially the guided tour of Tarragona ! Best wishes, Simon and Amanda.

Fantastic holiday yet again, Simon and Amanda really make your stay comfortable and very enjoyable. Plenty to do, lots to see. Loved it
Great to see you back again this year. It was really lovely to meet more of your family this time and we are very happy that you had such a good time. For us, the guests make it all worth while and make this such a personal business.

"Are you looking for quietness and peace. So this is the right place to go."
Quietness, peace, nature, olivetrees, sun and friendly owners.
The beach is just a few minutes drive away from this place.
There are a lot of things to discover in this costa dorada (from leisure to culture).
Nice place for everybody old and young.
We are very happy to read your review and are even happier that you and your family had such a lovely holiday. Thanks again for staying with us, Simon and Amanda
