  • Great for children of all ages
  • Car advised
  • Pets welcome
  • Private garden

Come and stay in our environmentally-friendly cottage on an organic olive farm. If you come at the right time of year you can help with the harvest, and during the remainder of the year you are welcome to picnic on the farm's olive terraces.

This is a newly-renovated cottage on a traditional olive farm in the countryside above Costa Daurada, with peace and quiet and no neighbours. IT IS 4.2KM/2.6MILES OFF-ROAD, with its own private drive and gardens on a quiet country lane and has sweeping views across the valley to the nearest village of Rasquera.

Hiking, biking and birdwatching are on your doorstep, with beaches/fishing/sight-seeing/wine tours and many other attractions a short drive away. The cottage is environmentally friendly, with solar power and rainwater storage, yet also has all mod cons. The spacious living room opens onto a large terrace, and a second terrace provides dining and sunbathing areas. There are two double bedrooms, one with a queen size bed, plus two queensize sofabeds in the spacious lounge/dining room/kitchen, meaning that the cottage can accommodate 8-10 people in comfort.

All the doorways are extra-wide to accommodate wheelchairs, and there are wheelchair-friendly ramps from the parking area to the cottage. It's also ideal for children, with plenty of room to run around, both inside and outdoors, and a fenced terrace for young children.

The property is surrounded by our own organic farmland, olive terraces, and wooded areas, where you are welcome to ramble and explore.

The Catalunia region

The Costa Daurada/Tarragona region is an area which happily has been missed by mass tourism. The closest beaches are under an hour's drive from the cottage, with many small coves and quiet beaches. We would particularly recommend the coves near El Perello or the picturesque village of L'Ametlla de Mar, with its wide range of bars and restaurants.

The area played an important part in the Spanish Civil War, and there are numerous castles, villages and museums to visit. It is also a short and very scenic drive to the famous wine-growing regions of Penedes and Priorat, where you can sample and buy the delicious wines of the region. And perhaps you can find time to visit some of the local castles, such as the impressive one at nearby Miravet which is reached by car ferry across the River Ebro, or the fairytale ruins of the monks' hermitage at the Cardo monastery.

Rasquera

The nearest village, Rasquera, is a traditional village where the old men still gather in the shade of the village square, and which also provides basic daily shopping - and a number of excellent cafes and bakeries. It's about 20 minutes drive away.

El Perello, in the opposite direction, is larger and has more amenities, a range of shops including an internet cafe, and a good local Saturday market. It also has an excellent bodega, where you can sample and buy the delicious wines of the area. There are numerous local fiestas throughout the year, and in the cottage you will find full details of where and when these take place, and of course, maps of all the surrounding areas. Catalunya is famous for its festivals and fiestas, so make sure you enjoy some of these.

"Fantastic location, very comfortable"

Once again thank you so much for a wonderful holiday. Peace, tranquility and rest. We'd recommend to everyone the beach bar/restaurant Los Perales - the paella and mussels are out of this world. Also Carpe Diem for an 'over the top' wonderful meal. To everyone coming here, have a wonderful time - off back to the real world now, but coming back in September - can't wait
