Overview

Baix Ebre Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Finca Tita has been recently refurbished, has two bedrooms, and sleeps four.

Finca Tita stands on its own, just below the crest of a mountain ridge, overlooking four acres of olive terraces.

To the south there are breathtaking views of the Mediterranean, and the Ebro delta. We love eating on the veranda in the shade of the porch enjoying the outlook. There is usually a welcome breeze even in the hottest weather.

To the north our property borders with one of Spain's largest national parks, which abounds in wildlife. We have seen wild pigs, goats, foxes, badgers, rabbits, weasels, mice, lizards and lots of birds. Eagles often soar close overhead. The house itself has been recently modernized and comprises a living room with kitchen attached. The living room has a wood burning stove, the kitchen has a fridge freezer and gas cooker. There is a generous double bedroom, a small bedroom with two single beds, and a bathroom with bath, shower and toilet.

Tita has its own electricity supply coming from solar panels, and a small windmill, water is pumped from a cisterna.

Finca Tita is easily accessed by a Tarmac road from the village of El Perello.

The nearest airport is Barcelona Reus, which is less than an hours drive away.

Ryan air provide budget flights to Reus and the flights can often be very reasonable especially if booked in advance.

Car hire is available at Reus airport from a variety of companies it does pay to shop around, and it is advisable to reserve cars in advance.

We arrange for our agent to meet and greet our guests in El Perello and escort them to Finca Tita where a welcome pack of basics awaits (milk, bread, fruit, wine and teabags).

Our agent will also show guests round the house and explain about changing gas bottles, where to shop, where the best beaches are ect.

Finca Tita has its own electricity supply which is generated by solar panels and a windmill, which is adequate but we ask guests to be mindful about leaving lights and electrical devices on when not required.

We also ask guests to be mindful about the use of water as this is delivered by tanker to our cisterna. The water is potable but like most people in Spain we drink bottled water and just use the cisterna water for washing and washing dishes ect.

Should you need advice during your stay you will be able to reach our agent by phone.

Fabulous counrty retreat

  • 5 of 5

This charming cottage is situated in a quiet rural setting with stunning views of the countryside and coast line. The property is quaint, comfortable, homely and is well equipped and well maintained.

We found so many nearby places to visit, but a car is essential. The town of El Perello is lovely, with many bars and restaurants offering traditional Spanish fare. Nearby is the resort of L'Ampolla which has plenty of waterfront shops, lovely restaurants and bars.

We had a wonderful holiday and will certainly be returning in the future. We would highly recommend this place to anyone seeking a tranquil, stress-free holiday.

Birdwatchers Paradise - stunning views !

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at Finca Tita being very keen birders we spent the whole time outside watching the raptors flying over the stunning mountain view ! This is such a beautiful and peaceful place that I would definitely book in to stay again. Also for other keen birders you are just up from the Delta where there are nature reserves and numerous stalks, egrets and other waders. The most exciting part of the Delta were the kingfishers which we saw every time we visited! The house is very well equipped and it is lovingly kept. It is clear that Jock and Roz treat this as home from home and we were very comfortable during our stay. Many thanks. Maggie and Jason

Lovely Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is a charming Finca, set in a beautiful and peaceful location with stunning views of the surrounding hills and Ebro Delta. It has everything you need for a quiet break and you wouldn't even know that you were living 'off grid'. We enjoyed many hours unwinding on the terrace taking in the views. There is some amazing cycling to be had straight from the door with a mixture of on and off road. The pretty town of El Perello has everything you need day to day with a welcoming and friendly atmosphere. As stated in previous reviews a car is pretty much essential as it is set in a fairly remote location about a 10 to 15 minute drive to El Perello. We would highly recommend driving up to the Cardo Monastery from Rasquera as the views from the top are amazing.

Our second summer in this lovely house.

  • 5 of 5

This is the second summer that we had the pleasure of spending a few weeks in this lovely house, which is very neat and clean. The environment is beautiful with an amazing view on the valley and the sea at the horizon.

The house is situated at 10 minutes driving from the typical catalan village EL PERELLO and near to the very nice beaches like CAP ROIG, L'AMPOLLA, L'AMETLLA DEL MAR.

Our grand son had a wonderful time as well. We hope to go back again.

Just fabulous

  • 5 of 5

Previous comments say it's a piece of paradise ? Well... It's true !!

Tita is even better than the site pictures let you imagine. You really have this marvelous see over the delta between the nearby mountains from the terrase, where you will enjoy a cool sangria after a day in the creeks, exploring the rice fields in the delta or hiking in the mountain, up to prehistoric caves for couragous peoples.

This place is really magic, if you are looking for peace, you will find it in the olivetrees of El Perello. Here you will feel alone in the world, hang between sea and mountain. But shhh don't tell it too much, we want to come back and find it unchanged !

Finca Tita is situated on the edge of a national park, and overlooking the Ebro delta. Tita is 5 kilometers from the nearest village El Perello, and 12 kilometers from the sea.

By car it is twenty minutes to the larger seaside towns of L'Amolla, and L'Amettla de Mar.

Trains run regularly and cheaply from these towns to Port Aventura and Barcelona which is two hours away.

On the coast several attractive and relatively quiet beaches are within half an hours drive.

Inland the mountain scenery is majestic and each village and town has its own individual charm.

The national park next door to us has an extensive network of cycling and walking trails which offer fantastic views, and the air is filled with the scent of wild thyme and rosemary. There is an amazing variety of wild flowers.

Notes:
Finca Tita is perfect for visitors who want to have a peaceful secluded base to return to, while still being within easy reach of services and beaches. Step out the door and you have a huge network of tracks ideal for walking and mountain biking. Wildlife abounds in the mountains and the deltebre which we overlook is a perfect location for birdwatchers. I have declared that the property is not suitable for children, because the terraces are quite steep, however most children over the age of five would be fine. We have no worries about our eight year old grandchild who is a regular visitor. We don't mind people smoking as long as visitors smoke on the porch and dispose of butts sensibly. We must draw your attention to the risk starting brush fires! It is illegal to have a fire of any sort including a barbecue without a special license. The local police take this very seriously and anyone starting a fire without a license can be liable to be fined.
