Olive House is a large fully equipped self catering apartment, located in the picturesque Catalonian village of Ginestar. An authentic 18th century Spanish home, it is full of character and original features and has recently been refurbished to create a spacious three bedroomed apartment. The ground floor offers a large spacious area for storage of fishing equipment or up to 6 motor cycles for touring holidays.

Due to the design of the building, it manages to remain at a comfortable temperature throughout the summer and is a welcome retreat if the temperatures soar, so air-conditioning is not required. The apartment consists of a modern newly refurbished kitchen, touch control ceramic hob, fan assisted oven, fridge-freezer and a wide range of cooking utensils and crockery. The lounge area has a large leather suite and English free-view television so you are able to keep track of what is happening at home. There are three spacious bedrooms, two with double beds and one twin room, all linen is provided, including bathroom towels. There is an outside terrace with seating available, which can be used for barbques offering views of the surrounding mountains.Although we do not permit smoking indoors, you are welcome to use this area for smoking.

Situated near the river Ebro one of Europe's major rivers, the apartment is ideal for fishing holidays, providing outstanding carp and cat fishing where cat fish of over 150lbs are regularly caught. It is a stunning area of Catalunya with olive groves and vine yards in abundance, a beautiful place to visit and relax, with such a slow pace of life it makes a wonderful break, a chance to experience Spanish culture in less commercial surroundings.

About this location

The Catalunia region

Situated in the Tarragona region Ginestar is a small Spanish village surrounded by breath taking mountainous scenery.The river Ebro flows directly by the village providing a great opportunity to catch large carp by the riverside, or take a guided boat tour with experienced Anglers for a chance to catch a 150lb or more catfish.

Olive house is also within close proximity to the Ebro Delta where there is a bird sanctuary and a chance to view many different species of birds, including flamingo's and ibis within the rice paddies.

The apartment is also only 30 minutes drive to the mediterranian with a wide expanse of beaches that are of a very high standard at Miami Player and large marina at L'hospitalet, with many bars, restaurants and amenities for you to enjoy.

For an opportunity to visit a more commercial part of Spain, Salou is also only 30 minutes drive, here the famous Port Aventura Theme Park gives a chance to go on exciting rides, or cool off at the Aqua Park with large pools and many slides it is ideal for families.

Olive house is only an hours drive away from Barcelona offering breath taking tourist attractions, including the world famous Gaudi Cathedral and F.C. Barcelona football stadium.

We highly recommend car rental so that you are able to take full advantage of the whole area.

Mora D'Ebre

This area of Costa Dorada is loved for its fishing, breath taking mountainous scenery, quiet towns and unspoilt beaches, making it an ideal holiday destination for families and people who love the out doors particularly if they enjoy fishing.

There are many fiestas within Ginestar and neighbouring villages, which offer a chance

to see the local crafts of woven wicker, wood turning and lace making to name but a few, being demonstrated and sold on local stalls. It is also a chance to sample the extra virgin olive oil from the local area with its high standard of quality. As well as sampling the local wine well known from the Terra Alta region.

A stay in Ginestar allows an opportunity to soak up the Spanish culture and enjoy a wonderful relaxing summer vacation. A chance to sample the local wine and tapas at a much more slower pace of life, come and get away from it all and enjoy a relaxing summer vacation.

"more than expected"

I am a frequent visitor to this part of Spain, and travel yearly for the fantastic carp/catfishing this area has to offer, I was told about the 'Olivehouse' by a friend, so 'emailed' the owners and and booked 5 days (whole apartment) for myself a 3 other angler friends. Travelling from Belfast we flew into Barcelona city main airport (2013 new route from Belfast Reus available) we colleceted our hire car and travelled to Ginestar,brilliant roads, where we were met by the owners, and shown around this mid terrace town house off a quiet side street, the property has been renovated to a very high standard, with everything you require, The apartment was spot less, and a credit to the owners, A great base to work from to explore rural spain /beaches/wildlife a short drive away. Already booked again for 2014.
