Description

Located on the outskirts of a historical picturesque farming village, which itself is situated on a mountain-top overlooking the beautiful wide valley of the Conca de Barberà in the northern limits of the province of Tarragona, where we offer you B&B-style accomodation, with self-catering option, more-or-less vegetarian and non-smoking, in a friendly and comfortable atmosphere.In the lounge you will find a scrap-book, full of information on places to see and visit, a walk or a short car ride away.The great advantage of staying up in our village and not down in the humid sweltering heat of the coast in summer, is that although it may be as hot outside as the coast on a very sunny day, in the evening there is a delicious freshness, when one can open the windows and let the cool into the house, keeping them closed during the day, as the very thick s stone walls of the house keep a steady temperature of 23-23ºC in summer and with the heating on the rest of the year at a steady 18-20º.The

So apart from a walk up to the top part of the village for the views and to visit the 1000-year-old Romanic church and wander round the old village, or taking a walk in the local countryside to visit the ancient spring or to pick aromatic plants, there many interesting visits to be made locally. We are very lucky to have a few minutes drive away the brand-new 5-star thermal spring establishment of Rocallaura, extremely well-equipped and guaranteed to make you feel a new person in two hours. We have multi-ticket entries which reduce the price from 23 to 15€ all-in. We have also installed a foot-massage and steam sauna therapy cabin on the ground floor next to the yoga room; afterwards you feel 50 times better than taking a shower. Cost 5€ per session.With the village strategically situated on the Route of the Cisters, and the public rambling route GR Saint James' Track passing in front of the house, giving easy access to the 3 famous historic monasteries, Santes Creus, historically fascinating, Vallbona de les Monges, quaint and still functionning, and Poblet, beautiful and much-appreciated. 50 km. away from Tarragona and its wonderful beaches. 115km from Barcelona.Unless you come in your own car, you can be met at the airport (Reus the nearest) and helped with accepting a hire car (best booked previously), and we will show you which routes to take. We can meet you at Reus airport with our 9-seater VW, and once lodged, we can take you to visit nice places in the afternoons. In the mornings you can take walks nearby or round the village, or stay and rest or study in the relaxing atmosphere of the recently and tastefully renovated house.Alojamiento inscrito en Registro Oficial de Turismo con numero HUTT-5412. Tourist tax of 0.50€ per day extra is payable in the future.

“A beautiful apartment in an idyllic village”

Reviewed 23 Jun 2015

This was a fantastic break and I only wish I had booked for longer. The apartment was wonderful with everything supplied - even a pizza oven! There were books, games, t.v. and d.v.d.s, compact dics and comfortable beds. The apartment has been renovated and decorated to a very high standard and has a warm, friendly feel. The multi-lingual hosts are very welcoming and full of fascinating information about local history and geography. The location is a quiet and beautiful hilltop village that has a bar and lookout and an old church. The surrounding countryside is breathtaking, with eagles and much other wildlife and seems to be undiscovered. There are even bicycles available from the hosts, to explore on.

“Hospedaje acogedor, tranquilo, buena ruta turística y gastronómica”

Reviewed 18 Jan 2013

Lo mejor de esta casa, es que tiene todas las comodidades del mundo moderno, aunque estás en medio del campo, con solo el sonido del viento y los pájaros como compañía. Queda cerca de todos los sitios de interés turístico y cuenta con todo el equipamiento de excelente calidad y buen gusto, para hacerte sentir en casa. Mi madre de 80 años la pasó muy bien. Pudimos hacer cosas muy diferentes, visitamos bellos monasterios y fuimos a la playa. El pueblo y la casa tienen una temperatura muy agradable. A poca distancia se come bien, bonito y barato.

Si, he disfrutado mucho de la visita de Silvia y su madre. Al principio fue aprehensivo que una señora de tantos años no se ponga a quejar, que lo típico de señoras de avanzada edad. Pero se lanzó a hacer todas las visitas; Santes Creus, que le encantó, y los demás monasterios, donde Poblet la impresionó por su tamaño y la belleza de las alrededores. Las llevé a restaurantes un poco más modestos (10€ el menu con bebida,postre y café incluido), y quedaron sorprendidas que se come mejor por aquí que en Barcelona. Siempre estoy dispuesto a llevar a visitar los muchos sitios interesantes por aquí a gente que se encantan y disfrutan tanto como esas buenas señoras venezolanas. Creo que el equipamento que menciona refiere al cabina ducha con sauna turco que tenemos en el tercer cuarto de baño en la planta baja al lado de la sala de yoga. Como está haciendo mucho calor ahora en la costa, yo me quedo en mi pueblo sobre un monticulo, fresco y bien aireado. Todo un placer.
