Martin and Maggie were so welcoming and helpful - we were so appreciative of their local knowledge in booking the best places to eat or to visit. Accommodation and pool were great - once you were in that hammock, very difficult to get out!! One of many highlights...

Caught MG at its best and it was so hard to leave. The cottage is fitted out to a very high standard. The availability of internet may be a modern world intrusion, but makes researching and booking outings so much easier.

Our sons loved the animals and started learning English. The priorat itself is an unspoiled area whit loads of opportunities to hike, bike,...

About the neighbourhood
Famous for its vineyards, olive groves, scenery and wildlife, the Priorat is perfect for nature and food and wine lovers.
There are festivals throughout the year, including a major wine fair in Falset at the beginning of May, a colour artisan fair in Marçà at the end of May plus the great summer fiestas in all the villages - and a wonderful pace of life all the time.
Marçà is just one kilometre away and has small shops, including a bakery, a chemist, two restaurants and a bar. Falset is three kilometres from the farm and has all amenities.
The train station with easy links to Tarragona and Barcelona is just one and a half kilometres from the farm.

We have contacts with many local wine cellars who offer wine tours which we would be happy to organise on your behalf.
