As its name suggests the Costa Dorada (golden coast) has many beautiful golden sand beaches which remain even at the height of the summer season largly uncrowded. Unlike the more southern Costas the Costa Dorada has glorious sunshine but doesn't become so unbearably hot in the summer months so makes for an enjoyable & relaxing summer destination.
The nearby towns of Tarragona and Reus retain their old world charm and are great for exploring and have an abundance of great restaurants and al fresco cafes.
Only a 5 minute drive from the villa are some of the most beautiful golden sand beaches and the local town of Hospitalet de L'Infante which has a small yacht marina where you can watch the world go by at one of the many bars or seafood restaurants.
For the more sporting - orientated it is only 4 minutes to the 18 hole Bonmont Golf course.
A half hour drive and you could be fishing or canoeing on the Ebro river, or bird watching flamingos, among the many other species, on the Ebro Delta ..... or just partaking of the Delta's famously delicious fresh seafood and paella.
There is so much to do in the immediate area- from cycling, walking and hiking to mountaineering and rock climbing. Guides and instruction are easily available .
Bicycle,moped,quad bikes and tri-bikes are also all available for hire locally.
Archaeological sites round the area abound from the ancient Iberian and Roman times.
Fishing and canoeing can be found on the river Ebro and the Delta region affords fine bird watching .
Golf is available very close by on the Robert Trent -Jones Jnr designed 18 hole course at Bonmont Golf Terra Noves . Also pitch and putt at La Figuerola in Vandellos is a short drive of around 20 minutes.
Horse riding abounds with many wonderful trails and moonlight treks down to the beach from our local stables just around the corner from the villa at El Rancho de Las Rocas
Port Aventura theme and water park at Universal Studios is around 20 minutes away for those without fear!
The coast obviously has a lot to offer with regard to cuisine and some of the finest dining out can be had in the area with the huge variety of both sea food and mountain recipes .
Also of course there are those beautiful sand beaches and beach sports. The larger sailing and motor boats can also be chartered from the port of Cambrils, a lovely lively town which the high- rises fortunately seem to have missed.
For the youngsters or brave and young at heart take a trip to Port Aventura theme park 20 minutes away or sample the bars, restaurants and nightlife in Salou.
Should a trip to a big city be the order of the day, Barcelona is about an hour away by car or there's an excellent local train service which takes you right into the centre in around an hour and a half.
However should you want somewhere a bit closer to home Tarragona, with it's great shopping, Roman archaeological sites and beautiful old town full of bustling squares lined with restaurants and cafes is around a 20 minute drive away and well worth a visit as is indeed the lovely old town of Reus.
And the list goes on ....................... there really is something for everyone !
