Situated in a beautiful, isolated spot but close to our own local style casita, the recently renovated, local style finca strikes a balance between the “off-grid” experience but with the local town and all its amenities within easy reach. With three double bedrooms, a large lounge and kitchen with outside covered patio area, you can simply unwind and relax. We have fitted a brand new solar electrical system and recently refurbished the whole building. The new kitchen has a gas hob, fridge and everything you need for a stay in the country. Outside is a gas fired barbecue and plenty of private space to sit and watch the sun go down. Free wifi is supplied and there is a dvd player and music system with a selection of discs for both, plus plenty of books!
The local town is Móra D’Ebro and Móra La Nova is the other side of the river.
Between them they offer a good selection of supermarkets, restaurants, cafes, banks and general shops. Just down the road from us we have the local police, an excellent hospital, plus fire and ambulance stations. During the summer the outdoor pools are open where you can spend a day swimming, sunbathing and having a lunch at the poolside bar.
Catalonia is well known for its excellent food and friendly, lively fiestas that run throughout the year. During the summer months the local towns and villages take it in turns to have week long celebrations that last all night!
Within easy reach of us there are deserted mountain villages, beautiful Mediterranean beaches and ports, natural parks with stunning landscapes and a protected Delta region which has a wide variety of wildlife.
Miravet is a famous local village on the banks of the river with an impressive Moorish castle and beautiful potteries which are perfect for buying souvenirs. Dotted around us are lovely, unspoilt Catalan villages where time seems to have stood still. Try out the ancient, current powered ferry!
As we are away from the main coastal resorts, the restaurants will be mainly occupied by locals so the prices are better and the standard of food on offer is high and very good value. Most Spanish restaurants offer a Menu Del Dia, which is a three or four course lunch, with wine, for between €10 and €20 a head. It is exceptionally good value.
The biggest and final decisive battle of the Spanish Civil War took place around Móra D’Ebro, so if you are interested in military history you will find the area fascinating. We can provide information on where to find everything or take your ourselves if you prefer.
Further afield Reus and Tarragona have major shopping centres with all the facilities of large towns. Tarragona and Tortosa both have a fascinating history and plenty to explore. Tarragona also has a large marina where you can check out the incredible superyachts and have a relaxing quayside lunch.
Why not spend a night or two in Barcelona to start or finish your visit? It’s a beautiful city and one of the most popular European destinations for good reason.
