    Description

    Located on the outskirts of a historical picturesque farming village, which itself is situated on a mountain-top overlooking the beautiful wide valley of the Conca de Barber in the northern limits of the province of Tarragona, where we offer you B&B-style accomodation, more-or-less vegetarian and non-smoking, in a friendly and comfortable atmosphere
    With the village strategically situated on the Route of the Cisters, and the public rambling route GR Saint James' Track passing in front of the house, giving easy access to the 3 famous historic monasteries, Santes Creus, historically fascinating, Vallbona de les Monges, quaint and still functionning, and Poblet, beautiful and much-appreciated
    This being a mountain-top village, there are unparallelled views over the wide valley of the Conca de Barber right the way down to the sea 50kms away, and from behind the village we see the whole long chain of the Pyrenees, covered in snow except in summer.

    So apart from a walk up to the top part of the village for the views and to visit the 1000-year-old Romanic church and wander round the old village, or taking a walk in the local countryside to visit the ancient spring or to pick aromatic plants, there many interesting visits to be made locally.
    The great advantage of staying up in our village and not down in the humid sweltering heat of the coast in summer, is that although it may be as hot outside as the coast on a very sunny day, in the evening there is a delicious freshness, when one can open the windows and let the cool into the house, keeping them closed during the day, as the very thick s stone walls of the house keep a steady temperature of 20-23C in summer and with the heating on the rest of the year at a steady 18-20.
    Unless you come in your own car, you can be met at the airport (Reus - free, - Barcelona 30 charge) and helped with accepting a hire car (best booked previously), and we will show you which routes to take. We can guide you on visiting nice places nearby and you can take walks nearby or round the village, or stay and rest or study in the relaxing atmosphere of the recently and tastefully renovated house.

    Our place is in the lower part of the village, which avoids being shrouded in clouds as is the top part when it's cloudy, but just as cool in summer, and is at more or less the same altitude as several local places that can be cycled to (we have 2 bikes we can hire you very cheaply) along the tracks improved by the windmill installers. The windmills provide great wondering for younger visitors, and although initially their presence scared off most of our local eagle population, recently we have been noticing the return of soaring great birds of prey in the skies over the Conca..

    The house is equipped with solar-heated hot water, which has electric back-up in case the sun doesn't shine in more than 2 days, which is extremely rare. There are either summer or winter duvets on all the beds. The windows are fitted with anti-fly screens, and there are virtually no mosquitos in the whole village. Each guest is provided with a hand and shower towel, which are checked before departure, as is the kitchen equipment. The flushes in the 4 separate WC's and the water taps are fitted with water-saving devices, and the central heating is a special low-consumption electric system. There is a big satellite dish, so in the visitor lounge, (shared by the 4 double bedrooms) the TV receiver gives all the Spanish channels and Sat TV.
    We now have wi-fi via sat; enough to search and read emails with.
    Accomodation inscribed in the Official Tourism Registry with the number HUTT-5412.
