L'Ampolla Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Caseta suitable for 2 adults and 1 child (max) Barn for 2 adults (no children)
Our secluded caseta and restored barn in the countryside of the Costa Dorada is on the Via Augusta 6km from the beautiful beaches of L'Ampolla. In our olive groves are a variety of pomegranate, fig, almond, carob and orange trees. The Farm is supplied with water from our own deep water well and electricity is from solar panels. The use of our private walled 10metre by 5metre pool is essential on hot days and vegetables and herbs grow in our walled garden most of the year. The Caseta has a hot shower room/toilet, open plan kitchen/dining area with fridge, cooker and two single or 1 double plus the option of a single childs bed. The Barn has one double bed. There is also a comfortable lounge area with a log burner.. Outside is a BBQ and a covered seating area for al fresco dining. We have a large selection of books to borrow and WiFi is available. Although these are detatched , the owners of the farm live very close by and are always available if any problems should arise.
Sight seeing: The cities of Barcelona and Valencia and the old Roman city of Tarragona(Tarracoa) are within a 2 hour drive. Other interesting places to visit include medieval Tortosa, coastal Peniscola(famous for its association with the legendary El Cid), and the charming riverside village and fortress of Miravet accessed by one of the last unpowered river ferries on the Ebro.
Local activities: Hiking,walking, horse riding, mountain biking,bird watching, rock climbing, canoeing, fishing on the famous river Ebro or sea fishing are all locally available. Or just sit with a glass of local vino and watch the Spanish celebrating one of many fiestas. The fish restaurants on the harbour side of L'Ampolla are particularly recommended. Excellent traditional Catalan dishes are available throughout the area.

About Mark and Shiela Fowler
We are just approaching our 10th anniversary of buying this farm and 7 years of living here. We have spent most of those years renovating and reforming the property. We hope, fingers crossed, that our visitors will like and enjoy what we have done!
Mark and Shiela Fowler purchased this cottage in 2004
Why Mark and Shiela Fowler chose L'Ampolla
This really is an away from it all destination. The farm sits in its own terraced and wooded valley - very private and tranquil. A car is an absolute necessity as the nearest village shops and bars are a very very long walk! We love the history of this area, living on the Via Augusta with its links to Rome and Hannibal and the Elephants is, for us, 'living the dream'
What makes this cottage unique
If you are looking for a really peaceful and relaxing break spent mostly lounging around in the sun with a good book, then this will suit you down to the ground. Highlights of the week? probably the BBQ or making a pizza and sampling some of the best wines in Spain or just floating on an air-bed in the pool!
