Manna House Casita

Cottage -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
L'Ampolla, Terres de l'Ebre, Province of Tarragona, Catalonia
The casita is a delightful old cottage, used in olden times for shelter for the farmer and his donkey. It is very cosy; warm in winter and cool in summer. It has been completely renovated and is completely self-contained. It has an upstairs sleeping area with a double bed and a double sofa bed downstairs in the large main living area, which also has a logburner for the cooler winter months.

These provide a gorgeous feast of grapes in the autumn and from early summer onward provide cooling shade from the hot sun, ideal to relax under with a nice drink.

Interaction with guests
On your arrival we will be here to give you the keys to the property and show you where everything is. We live here all year round so are always here to show you our sustainable lifestyle and how we reduce our impact on the environment, chat about the weather, the best beaches, sights to see, what's going on in the area or to hear about what a wonderful day you have had. We have met some wonderful people from all over the world and it is always great to meet new ones. Tourism is an extraordinary tool that enables us to reach out to people, makes us more open to change, more receptive to differences and, therefore, more tolerant. We will send you detailed directions on how to find the farm nearer your arrival time.

How to get there
Airport: Reus: 70.0 km
Railway: L'Aldea: 8.0 km
Ferry: Valencia or Barcelona: 170.0 km
The nearest airport is Reus which is about 70km away with most european airlines coming there. There is easy access from most UK airports and Ryanair, Easyjet, Bmibaby, Monarch etc. all fly to Barcelona which is about 160km from us. There are 2 main roads from the airport, the N340/A7 and the AP7 and they both run along the Mediterranean coast, ensuring beautiful views of the sea before you reach us. There are several car hire companies at the airports including Gold Car Rental, Auriga Crown, Avis and Hertz, and it is easy to book these on-line from the UK. Just Google car hire at Reus or Barcelona airport.

We are situated in the countryside just outside the town of L'Aldea off the N340 and we are about 10 minutes from the sea.
