Make tourism something different!
Just stepping out the door of the Ecohouses, you can start walking or mountain biking in the Serra del Boix.
If you are of those who prefer the mountains and adventure sports, we are just 45 minutes from the summits of over 1,000 meters of the Natural Park of Els Ports Tortosa-Besseit. And do not miss the Serra del Cardo, little known, full of history and breathtaking mountain scenery is 1 hour from the Ecofinca Lo Favaret.
If you prefer the sea and beach, the Natural Park of the Ebro Delta is only 15 minutes drive, waiting for you with rice fields rising behind the sand dunes, unspoilt beaches and incredible variety of bird-life, including the famous pink flamingos.
Ecofinca Lo Favaret is located on a terraced hill with fantastic dry stone walls, in the foothills of the Natural Park of the Serra Boix-Cardo, in Baix Ebre, to the south of the province of Tarragona and less than two hours drive from Barcelona to the north and Valencia to the south.
To reach the Ecofinca Lo Favaret a car is necessary, since the nearest train stations (L'Ampolla or L'Aldea) are 12km away and there is no public transportation from there.
It is important to know that the access to Ecofinca Lo Favaret is by paved rural roads, except the last 400m, which is a forest dirt road, suitable only for normal cars, which are not low or very long. You do not need a 4x4.
We enjoy a privileged view of the Natural Park of the Ebro Delta, which is accessible in 15 minutes by car and be surrounded by rice fields, many species of bird-life and nudist beaches, but avoiding the Delta`s mosquitoes.
Halfway between the historic city of Tortosa and the seafaring traditional fishing village of L'Ampolla, we have direct access to both scenarios; the mountains and the sea, not forgetting the fluvial ecosystem of the river Ebro and its marvelous delta.
1) It is important to know that the access to Ecofinca Lo Favaret is by paved rural roads, except the last 400m, which is a forest dirt road, suitable only for normal cars, which are not low or very long. You do not need a 4x4.
2)All the electrical energy for the finca is generated by the sun and transformed by photovoltic solar panels.
All the electrical appliances which we use are low consumption including some of which have been modified to further reduce their consumption.
We have sufficient capacity to live comfortably, it is possible to connect apparatus like chargers, lap top computers, shavers, but we cannot permit the use of high consumption apparatus like hair-dryers, irons, coffee machines, heaters, etc...
3)At Ecofinca Lo Favaret we collect the rainwater and store it in a subterranean cistern.
Due to the shortage of rain in the area, in the ecohouses we have implemented a system of usage and recycling which helps us take advantage of the water to the maximum. In this way we can arrive at the consumption of 50 litres of water a day, as recommended by WHO.
For this we encourage you to help as look after one of the most fundamental resources of our planet: the water.

The splendour of the river in the centre of the Ebro-valley with on either side the green hills covered with orange- and olive groves (fincas) procures an unrealistic sentiment, if one thinks of Spain being a country of
drought, arid soils and deserts. Facing south of Tortosa one can't miss the majestic mountain range of els
ports with mount Caro as the highest peak. The entire mountain-range is notable for the luxuriance of its landscapes and waterfalls and even ranches of fighting bulls can be found. Ideal spot for walks or bicycle tours whilst contemplating the splendour of the local flora and fauna.
In the Ebro-delta you have the possibility of taking a guided boat tour right to the mouth of the Ebro, passing the typical marsh scenery of the river-banks, but also rice fields, lagoons and unspoilt beaches. The delta
has a unique ecological value and it represents the second biggest European bird reserve.
You can hire bikes and discover thus the particularities of this flat landscape since many paths and tracks lead you into territories, where cars have no access. The entire family can walk or cycle for miles and miles without too much effort since everything is flat. Discover the immense beaches of beautiful white sand where you will probably be the only humans present. Don't forget to watch the flamingos, the herons and hundreds of other species from a short distance while they are searching for food !

We briefly recommend some routes we have walked and believe are impressive. If you want to know more, we invite you to see them in more detail and new excursions as on our blog. Have great fun!
Els Ports-La Caramella
Spectacular gorge with impressive waterfalls. Route with little difficulty and accessibility. Just entering the ravine of La Caramella water is abundant, it cascades from the cliffs and spring water trickles everywhere. The whole atmosphere takes us to an exotic and distant land, typical of Vietnam. At the top there is a 100 metre cascade, Cua de Cavall (Horse tail), the view of the gorge is incredible.
Els Ports-La Vall Servera (Servera Valley)
The Valley Cervera, especially in spring and autumn, has all the requirements for photographers of National Geographic. The colours of the terraces of olive trees mingle with pine forests, towering peaks in clouds and dotted with old farmhouses. At the end of the valley, comes the surprise; the Toll Blau and picture postcard waterfalls.
Montsiá – La Foradada
This is a route with little difficulty and stunning views over the Delta del Ebro. Best walked on a clear day to enjoy the scenery the Montsiá is a natural area with a maximum peak of 765 metres. It is a calcareous low mountain range located right next to the sea and the Delta del Ebro. From its summit, at La Foradada, one of its main attractions, there is a stunning viewpoint of the Delta del Ebro.
Els Ports-La Vall de l'Infern (Hell´s Valley)
If you do this tour in the autumn, you will find lush vegetation full of flowers and aromas. It is a simple but stunning route, which traverses at first on the soft Mediterranean side of Els Ports and suddenly switches to the side that is almost Pyrenean with stunning red and black pines and towering rock faces where we find the spring water of the Vall de l'Infern.
Els Ports-El Pla de l'Hedra
This delightful itinerary begins in the recreational area of the sources of Sant Roc, one of the most beautiful corners of Baix Ebre. The wonderful views that will reach, as you gain height, the Ebro valley and the mountains of Els Ports massif, the magic of the Cova del Llop, the walk through the dense forests of the Pla de l'Hedra, the impressive walls of the Roca Blanca, the waters of the Fountain of Galdiri, will leave an extrange impression … whether it was all a dream or not!
Els Ports-La Roca Xapada
Moderately difficult route in which we discover the southernmost part of the Els Ports Natural Park, in the area of Más de Barberáns. It is an excursion that will not disappoint anyone. The almost lunar beauty of the area is striking. The geological formations of “El Racó dels Capellans” and “Els Tacóns” will bring us back to Cappadocia or the Enchanted City of Cuenca. The changes of scenery -rugged, powerful, arid and sometimes softened by small pine forests- impact us and will remain forever in our minds and our memories.
Els Ports-Les Fonts de Paüls (The sources of Paüls)
Paüls is rich in groundwater, a fact that allows for numerous springs, among which the Font de Sant Roc, with sixteen pipes, located in a recreation area and surrounded by countless plant species of high biological value, of giant trees that protect the “corros” (circles), tables and chairs carved in stone.
The route runs between fields and near the forest, which makes this trip, a walk half tamed, half-untamed, straddling the cherry, almond and olive trees that flourish and help paülesencs the wild forest.And the sources are the meeting point!
Els Ports-La Cova dels Adells and la Vall del Bosc Negre (Adells Cave and Black Forest Valley)
The more we move through the woods and charming places in this corner of the Els Ports Massif, have more desire to stay forever. The rumor of the waters of the Font dels Xorros, the barren whiteness of Les Rases del Maraco, green moss in the Font dels Adells, fresh water that flows between ferns in the Font del Bosc Negre, the shadow and the thousands of nuances green of the pines of Bosc Negre … all is quiet and peace. A magical and bucolic as any.
Punta del Fangar (The Fangar Point)
This jewel in the deltas crown is one of the greatest treasures of the Delta del Ebro. It is a haven for many species of birds, different with each season. The landscape and light are never the same. Here you will find the rice fields meeting the golden sand dunes, and you will be perplexed by the mirages that arise in the distance.
El Trabucador and La Banya
A strange landscape where you feel far away from everything, surrounded by water on both sides. A narrow sand bar several kilometers long that leads to the Punta de Banya, which closes the bay of Alfacs with Rápita in the distance and a landscape of dunes and kilometers of unspoiled beaches. Eventually at the end the white mountains of the Trinitat salt lakes
