Overview

About the property

(Reg. No. HUTT-012373-31) Perfect home to share, enjoy and relax with family and friends. Ideally located for excursions to a variety of popular sights. A 2/3 bedroom (sleeps 6/8), sunny Mediterranean terrace cottage located in a nice, residential neighbourhood of a quiet medieval village. This is a house where you can fully appreciate the beautiful, mild Mediterranean climate throughout the year due to the many large windows and doors communicating with the exterior, both front and back. 10 min walk to the beautiful broad beach and a 3 min walk to the town centre. Town has all amenities. The house is just a few blocks from the historic village centre, with its castle, church, supermarket, town swimming pool, tennis courts, etc. Just below the church and castle, there is a plaza with a spectacular panoramic view of the sea and coast. There is a weekly outdoor market on Sundays, where you can buy fresh produce, as well as very affordable clothing and accessories, beach towels and toys. A great cultural experience! The long, broad beach, with its golden sand gently sloping into the sea. It extends for several kilometres in both directions to adjacent towns. Perfect for walking, jogging or biking, with a scenic cliff-top viewpoint overlooking the blue Mediterranean at each end where you can enjoy the magnificent sunsets. The surrounding countryside has rolling hills, fruit and olive orchards, fields of produce, and pine trees. A bit further inland are vineyards and towns with cooperatives and cellars where you can sample the local wines. Average temps. Dec 16/8, Mar 18/9, May 22/14.

Guestbook comments from the owner

La plage, la mer, le climat sont idéaux: air marin, soleil. Magnifique ! C'est une région très belle et intéressante, avec beaucoup de lieux à visiter (antiquité, médiéval, contemporain...) 15km de Tarragone, 60km de Barcelone. La maison et son jardin sont agréables, il y a de l'espace et de la fraicheur ce qui est très appréciable en été.Quant à Montse et David, deux personnes sympathiques, accueillantes, simples. Merci. Ce furent de très belles vacances. On souhaiterait y retourner !

Good location in a Spanish style house

  • 5 of 5

We were warmly welcomed by David and Montse and were given good local information. They told us about the fiesta in Roma de Bara which we enjoyed with the grandchildren - very traditional and friendly

We always used the car to go to the local beach as it was too far to walk with young children. The beach was great - tidy, sandy, clean toilet and good Bars

Visited Aqua Leon water park - about a half hour drive across the hills - enjoyed by all of us and not too big

Creixell has good amenities - supermarket, bakers, cafe's and helpful Tourist Info but little English spoken

We really loved the picturesque Spanish village and area

Montse and David very helpful and made our holiday very comfortable - our two grandchildren of 3 and 5 loved the house as much as us

"We really enjoyed our re...

  • 5 of 5

"We really enjoyed our recent stay in Creixell.When we arrived we were greeted by Montse and David who were extremely helpful and very friendly and made us feel immediately at home.The house itself was spotlessly clean and located in a wonderful situation overlooking the Mediterranean.The house has all the basic requirements and a few nice extras like 2 bicycles and general beach equipment like 2 parasols,rush beach mats,bat and ball games etc. The general area is very quiet with very little traffic noise.The house is located about 5 minutes walk from the historic centre of Creixell which is a lovely village with several good food stores,restaurants and bars.Creixell itself is in a wonderful location,being less than one hour's drive or train journey from Barcelona and only 15km from Tarragona.Finally the nearest beach,which is a good 20 minutes brisk walk (we drove instead),is a beautiful sandy beach and very safe for swimming.We (2 adults and 2 teenage kids) stayed for a week in the house and had a really relaxing and enjoyable vacation".

Agréable location

  • 3 of 5

Gîte très bien situé pour rayonner sur la Costa Daurada, Barcelone, Tarragone, le Priorat, Reus, le delta de l'Ebre... plages à proximité propres, avec parkings, douches.

Les points + du logement: spacieux, dans une rue tranquille, proche des commodités, boulangerie, super épicerie locale où l'on trouve de tout à un prix raisonnable, avec charcuterie et boucherie à la coupe.

Points - pas de clim aussi la température descend difficilement sous 28° la nuit, (sur notre periode) même en ayant fenêtres ouvertes et ventilateurs en marche. Rez de jardin et étage ne communiquent que par l'escalier extérieur. (Cuisine à l'étage) Literies pas très confortables. Pas de cafetière, pas d'aspirateur, pas de transats. Les 3 vélos mis à disposition ne sont pas utilisables car en mauvais état.

Voisinage agréable gâché par les aboiements fréquents.

Tolle Ferien für Individual Reisende

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten die letzte Augustwoche an diesem schönen Platz. Zirka eine Stunde Autofahrt von Barcelona entfernt liegt der kleine mittelalterliche Ort Creixelles, umgeben von kleinen Villen. Zirka 1.5 km entfernt ist der wunderschöne Strand, sehr sauber, weißer breiter Sandstrand, perfektes Meer mit leichten Wellen. Wir hatten durchweg schönes Wetter mit Temperaturen um die 30 Grad. Hier wird der Tourist nicht abgezockt, die Spanier bringen ihre Sonnenschirme selbst mit und stecken sie in den Sand. Sonnenschirme waren im Haus vorhanden. Die kleinen Strandbars verkaufen zu günstigen Preisen Essen und Getränke. Es gibt keine Hotelburgen im Hintergrund, und die Touristen waren alle Spanier und wohnten entweder auf dem Campingplatz oder in kleinen Ferienhäusern. Im Dorf selbst befand sich ein kleiner Supermarkt, der zum meiner Lieblings Einkaufstätte wurde. Hier wurden die Kunden noch namentlich gegrüßt, es schien morgens DER Treffpunkt für die Bewohner zu sein, die Qualität der Waren war 1a. An der Fleisch und Wursttheke wurde mit Postern für das Fleisch aus traditionellen Familienbetrieben geworben und wie mir später die Hausbesitzer mitteilten, ist der Laden dafür bekannt, beste Qualität von lokalen Betrieben zu verkaufen. Kein Fleisch aus der Massentierhaltung. Die Vermieter David und Montse waren sehr freundlich, empfingen uns bei der Ankunft mit Käse und Wein, gaben einige Reisetipps und beantworteten auch im Vorfeld jede Frage. Das Haus war sauber, wir hatten 3 Schlafräume, 2 im ersten Stock, einen im unteren Teil mit seperatem Eingang. Ideal für unsere Gruppe von 2 Erwachsenen, 2 Jugendlichen und einem 10 jährigen Mädchen. Im kleinen Garten wurde jeden Abend gegrillt. Creixelles liegt in einer tollen Gegend, hätten wir schlechteres Wetter gehabt, dann hätten wir sicher noch mehr Ausflüge in der Gegend gemacht, aber so waren es nur ein Besuch nach Tarragona, dem Adventure Park und zur nächsten Bucht, 10 Autominuten entfernt, die ideal zum Tauchen und Tretbootfahren war. Es war nirgendwo zu voll, die Leute überall nett und deshalb gibt es von uns die volle Punktzahl.

Séjour très agréable

Très bien reçu, et nous avons apprécié le cadeau de bienvenue. Maison confortable, accueillante.

Joli petit village et plage accessible et propre avec petit parking.

Les propriétaires sont des personnes disponibles avec un contact sympathique au niveau de la réservation, de l'accueil sur place, une adresse à recommander.

  • 5 of 5

we have stayed for more than one week in this house with my family, David and Montse were very very nice and the house is very comfortable with everything you need. The beach is just perfect, the village of creixell is also very nice and quietly with everything very near of the house (all by walk). We have all appreciate our stay in creixell and David and Montse have made it so perfect a great thank to them.
