We are Ruth and Graham Breeze and we live near York in North Yorkshire in England. Graham loves his photography and L'Ampolla and the surrounding area provides such a wide variety of subjects from the birds that visit the Delta throughout the year, the local farmers planting and later in the year picking the rice, the breathtaking scenery of the Mountains (such as Mont Caro), the beauty of the shoreline, rock pools and beaches and the history of Tarragona, Miravet, Morella, Peniscola ..................... the list is endless. On the otherhand Ruth loves nothing better than to relax around the pool (soaking up the sunshine with a good book or music) and to find new places to visit whilst at the same time testing out the wide variety of restaurants, tapas bars and not forgetting doing some shopping!!! Casa Elise (named after our daughter Elise) is a ‘Casa de Campo’ or traditional farmer’s house which has stood in Los Olivos for many decades. It was refurbished in 2005 and the kitchen and bathroom were modernised in 2011. We try to spend as much time as we can at Casa Elise but have found that there are many months when the house is empty so it seems a natural thing to offer others the opportunity to experience for themselves the peaceful and tranquil nature of ‘Finca Los Olivos’ and its little house so we are happy to make Casa Elise available to guests. Many people have stayed in our home in the sun, and all of them have enjoyed the experience, leaving very positive comments in the guestbook we leave in the living room.
Owner purchased this House in 2009
Why Owner chose L'Ampolla
During our first holiday in L’Ampolla in 2007, we were struck by the tranquillity of the area and found ourselves drawn to the charm of the town and the friendliness of its people. We returned for a second time in 2009 and came across ‘Finca Los Olivos’. Before we knew it we had become the owners of our own home in the sun! Casa Elise is only a short distance from so many activities, from dining in excellent restaurants and local cafes in the local town of L’Ampolla, to hiking in the mountains or walking and cycling on the flat Ebro Delta where local farmers grow rice which is sold worldwide. The Delta offers excellent bird watching with hundreds of species passing through or resident all year. Fishing in the river Ebro is a very popular activity, and there are so many local villages and towns each with their own character. Of particular interest is Miravet with its beautiful castle overlooking the river, reached by an old chain ferry that must be experienced. Whether you chose to visit any of the places we have named, find new places for yourself, lie on the golden local beaches or just stay by the Casa, we are sure you will have a fantastic experience and we hope you will love the place as much as we do.

Little heaven on earth
We had a wonderful vacation at Casa Elise: very nice and clean house, huge pool and beautiful and quiet surrounding. We will definitely come back!
We loved to play Marco Polo in the pool with our two kids (13 and 17), had a blast playing Pingpong, barbequed superb under the evening sun and had just a relaxed family time. Whenever we needed advise, there was Mike nearby. L'Ampolla is a nice little town, not crowded in June, has some great Restaurants, we went to La Barraca and Marisqueria Nova Devimar.... if you like seafood, you can't go wrong there! Nearby is the Nationalpark Deltebre. Just beautiful.
Excellent country house in a brilliant location
Property is well designed with everything you need. Comfortable and an excellent place for a relaxed holiday with lots of opportunity for sight seeing
Thank you for your review and its great to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Casa Elise as well as exploring some of surrounding area. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future when you will be able to experience more of the beauty of the area around Tarragona and maybe further south towards Valencia.
Un endroit paisible pour des vacances reposantes
Nous avons passé 2 semaines à Casa Elise, au calme au milieu des oliviers. La piscine permet de se rafraîchir, les enfants s'y sont vraiment bien amusés! sa profondeur permet à tous de profiter au maximum, il est tout de difficile d'y faire des longueurs de nage!
Sharon et Mike nous ont fait un bel accueil ! La maison est bien équipée et très propre. Nous recommandons cette location sans hésitation ! Merci à Ruth !
Merci pour vos gentils commentaires, nous sommes ravis que vous ayez apprécié votre séjour à Casa Elise et que vous aimeriez vous accueillir à nouveau.
perfect family stay
The place is perfect for a family with kids: the pool, which is not too deep, and the big surroundings. We loved the olive tress round the house. The place is quiet although it is close to the coast and the touristic sites.
The house and the surroundings are nice and were clean.
The owners were there for our questions in our preparations and during our stay.
They helped us to find everything we needed.
We felt very comfortable.
Thank you for your review. Where possible we hope to answer as many questions guests might have prior to and during their visit to make their holiday as enjoyable and memorable as possible. We are very pleased to be welcoming you back again for 2 weeks next year.
Casa Elise an ideal place to holidays
Casa Elise is a very nice house with all you have need during vacation.
We had appreciated the quiet of the place and the warm hospitality of people. Swimming pool and shade of olive trees complete this ideal table!
Dear Guests, thank you for your 5 star review. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the peace and tranquility of Casa Elise, the shade of the olive trees and the privacy of the swimming pool. Like you we find L' Ampolla to be a beautiful location for a peaceful and relaxing holiday.
Relax! (We did)
This Finca has all you need to relax: quiet surroundings, nice pool (excellent water depth for litle children!), shops, restaurants not so far away (by car) and many things to do.
We had an unforgettable holiday, starting with the warm welcome by Sharon and Mike. This casa deserves our sincere recommandation.

We are situated 5 minutes by car from L'Ampolla, a traditional Catalan fishing town. (You can walk there through the olive groves in 30 minutes). It has a beautiful Marina and has plenty of excellent restaurants where you can sample the local cuisine. There are many festivals and traditions throughout the year including Oyster day which takes place in May, where you can taste the daily catch. L'Ampolla has many beautiful beaches most of them are blue flag. The Ebro Delta is famous for its rice production, and its fishing. This area is a major migration point for many species of birds and local hides and lagoons offer excellent bird watching and photography opportunities. There are many places of interest nearby, for example Miravet with its historic castle and fabulous breathtaking views. Many of the local towns produce their own wine, which you can sample. Porta Ventura, one of the largest theme parks in Europe with its own water park, is on your doorstep. Salou, also nearby has fabulous blue flag beaches, water sports,discos and bars. Porta Ventura and Salou are a short train journey away while Barcelona and Valencia can be reached within 2 hours on a regular cheap train service.
