15 mins away is the mighty river Ebre where the largest catfish have been caught and organized fishing excursions can be arranged.
30 mins by car we have the fantastic blue flag beaches of the Costa Daurada with the lively resort of Salou and Europe's largest theme park Port Aventura and a water park.
Cambrils has a lovely marina where you can take boat rides out on the clear blue seas and go dolphin watching or try some tasty sea food at many of the restaurants.
If your after a city experience Tarragona is a short 40min drive away with its beautiful cathedral and Roman amphitheatre and artifacts or 90mins drive is the outstanding city of Barcelona with many fantastic artdeco buildings especially Antonio Gaudi and his fantastic mosaics, the food and the shopping is something not to be missed either.
Both these cities can be visited by our local train service from Falset very inexpensive and no nightmare parking or getting lost.
The Priorat area
Falset is known as the gateway to the Priorat, the region has recently become famous for its wine and olive oil.
The town is a 15 min walk (or 2 mins by car) from the cottage and has all the amenities for a small but lively town.
Every Tuesday there is a small market in the main square selling the freshest produce. `Falset has a very good selection of bars and restaurants serving excellent local cuisine and fine wines.
The town has several fiestas throughout the year, but our favourites have to be the Wine fair at the end of April/May and the traditional town fiesta in Mid August with many processions and firework displays not to be missed.
There are many bodegas where you can learn about the wine making process and best of all get to try the wines of the region hic....

I booked the casita for a long weekend away with my elderly father who was visiting me in Barcelona. After the bustle of the big city it was the perfect place to relax & unwind!

To begin at the beginning. My wife and I were touring Spain and Falset was on our list, because of Priorat - a major Spanish DOC for quality wine. A witty, cheery, e-mail ensued over 3 or 4 months. We arrived in Autumn (too cool for the wonderful pool) and just before their friends and family arrived for the olive picking and oil making...lucky them!. We wish we were a part of that inner circle.
Anyway, we duly arrived in Falset, rang Casita Molino and Karen, ever cheerful and helpful (and funny) gave us our final directions (as there is no exact address you can put in your Tom-Tom, GPS).. The instructions were to follow a road, where Adam was standing at the gate, enthusiastically waving. We drove in to be welcomed to a little gem. The cottage itself was 'heaven-on-a-stick.' Adam, an ceramicist of talent has added so many wonderful touches to the cottage, while Karen has ensured the traveller wants for nothing. Did I say the cottage is solar-powered? This cheerful English couple are carving out an eco life for themselves and are happy to share that with a lucky few.
The night we arrived, K & A were off to a Guy Fawlkes party (Nov. 5) and asked us, if in the unlikely event the firewood man arrrived, could we direct him where to dump it and could we give him the money. It was our pleasure!
