Pretty Casita in village location close to resort of Salou & Cambrils
Casita Ametlla is situated just outside the historic village of Alforja on a small, rural estate of private houses. It is ideally positioned to use as a base for exploring the fantastic Catalan countryside or spending time on the many spectacular beaches of the Costa Dorada.
Alforja is only 15 minutes by car from the city of Reus, which has an airport (served by Ryanair from various UK airports) and direct train links with Barcelona. Reus has many fine shops and restaurants, also some interesting architecture. The lively tourist resort of Salou is only 20 minutes away and is famous for its sandy beaches, nightlife and the theme park of Port Aventura. The ancient Roman city of Tarragona is just 25 minutes away and is well worth a visit.
Our casita forms part of the main house which has been extensively renovated by us after we moved here thirteen years ago. Although attached to the main house the casita is completely self-contained. It is very comfortable and will cater for 4/6 people. There is a sitting room with a patio door looking out over a very pleasant private terrace, which has views over the hazelnut farm of our neighbour and on some spring nights you can hear the nightingales singing from their nests in the hazelnut trees. We also have a swimming pool available for our guests from June to September, subject to weather conditions.
It is worth mentioning that we do have four cats and one dog, all of whom are very friendly. The dogs and cats are not allowed into the cottage where guests stay.
