Large double bed room available in an ancient traditional stone farmhouse, aka masia. It has been restored to preserve many original features such as terracota floor tiles, and contains antique Spanish furniture. It's in a quiet tiny village in the province of Tarragona, a fantastic location, which has been called the secret Tuscany. Happily accommodates a child's bed or cot which we have. Comes with adjacent shared bathroom.
We’re in a valley with vistas over the plain of Montblanc, the Conca de Barbera, surrounded by forests and fields of almond trees and vines. There are wonderful walks in the woods to be done, small villages around us to explore. A Roman calzada (road) passes through the village: nearby are the monasteries of Santas Creus and Poblet, and slightly further afield, Priorat and Montserrat.
We are 30 minutes from Reus, the nearest airport, 30 minutes drive from Tarragona and the coast, 1+hr drive or train from Barcelona and her airport.
It is a place for those searching quiet time, contemplative time, time with family and friends. Perfect for studying, writing, reading, hiking, escaping, exploring, and enjoying the sun without the crowds.
We also have a tuned piano, a walled garden, with hammocks and a paddling pool.
