A few kilometres inland is the village of El Perello. The Saturday morning street market is a good place to buy local fruit and vegetables or a freshly roasted chicken for a quick and easy lunch.

Just south of L'Ampolla is the famous rice growing area and bird sanctuary of the Ebro Delta. An interesting place to explore by bike, boat or canoe. The town of Tortosa is 20 minutes away and sits majestically on the banks of the River Ebro, a region rich with orange and olive groves. Famous with fishermen the River Ebro is well known for the size of its giant cat fish. Tortosa, is definitely worth a visit to see it's medieval castle, shop in the wonderful indoor food market and stroll around the pretty botanical gardens.

North of L'Ampolla is Tarragona, a very Spanish city and yacht building port with a wealth of Roman history including a well preserved Amphitheatre. The famous theme and aquatic park of Port Aventura is a must for anyone with kids but book in advance if you are visiting during the summer months.

Barcelona is just a hour and half by car or train. Go for the day or add a short city stay to your holiday. Take in the fantastical architecture of Gaudi, labarythine medieval streets, museums, art galleries and the amazing Boqueria Market.

Very clean and relaxing, good parking area, great pool.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely few days in L'ampolla very quiet and relaxing,the apartment was just what was needed in an excellent location the pizza restaurant was in walking distance (great steak) but the drive to the town of L'Ampolla was just 5 mins with lots of great restaurants and a lovely sea front for a stroll just to help the wonderful meal go down,The beaches were also excellent and also not far from the apartment unlike us we spent most days on one of them then a beer in the beach bar before we headed back was very welcome .if or when we return to L'Ampolla which I am sure we will this is the apartment we will stay in.there is nothing to to say but perfect.

Owner's Response: Dear Mary and Alan Thank you very much for your comments about your holiday in L'Ampolla and the compliments you have made about our apartment. L'Ampolla is a small, unspoilt, very Spanish holiday destination with a very pretty surrounding coastline of small bays and beaches and warm, tranquil sea. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from and the cuisine is based on very fresh, locally caught fish and seafood and rice harvested from the nearby Ebro Delta. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and had a relaxing few days away from home. We would, of course, welcome you again if at anytime in the future you would like to return. Kind regards Greg and Caroline

Beatiful and quiet in October

  • 4 of 5

We (a family of six from Finland) really enjoyed staying in L'Ampolla. The apartment was very clean and spacious enough for our family. The neighbourhood was really quiet in October and Cap Roig beach was beautiful and peaceful. I would recommend this to anyone travelling in the area.

Outstanding Accommodation In A Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My family which consists of me, my wife, son and daughter stayed at this lovely apartment from August 5th - August 12th. The apartment on arrival was extremely clean throughout.

The beds were very comfortable with clean crisp white sheets. The air conditioning was a massive benefit as the temperature day and night was very warm. The kitchen was well stocked with crockery, cutlery and pots and pans. We couldn't fault anything. So thanks to the owners Caroline and Greg for letting us share there wonderful place.

We all used the swimming pool each day and really enjoyed it. The beauty here is the kids can swim and you can watch them from the balcony.

The local beaches are clean and the water is a lovely temperature for paddling or swimming.

We ate out in a few of the local restaurants and found the food and service very good.

We would hope to get back to this wonderful part of the world again some day and would certainly be looking to see if we could book this wonderful apartment again.

Wonderfully relaxing holiday.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is spacious, spotless and comfortable. It has everything you might need and we loved the two balconies - especially the enclosed one on the top floor for breakfast! The pool is lovely and the beach a perfect 5 minute walk away. We were here the first week of July and the houses in the area were mostly empty, so it was very quiet (which suited us). You can walk to L'Ampolla along the coastal path. It is a lovely walk with several beaches along the way. Cap Roig beach is small but lovely with a cafe, toilets and showers (Why don't English beaches do that?) You can also hire pedalos and paddleboards. There is a pretty pizzeria just around the corner from the apartment, and a table-tennis table on the next street!

L'Ampolla has plenty of restaurants and bars at varying prices. We drove out to the delta with it's teeming birdlife, rice paddy-fields, boat-trips, bike hire and long sandy beaches.

We didn't venture inland this time, but there are mountains and villages to explore.

Overall a very relaxing enjoyable stay.

The apartment is airy, clean, tasteful, uncluttered, and comprehensively equipped. It is perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is a gem. Everything was just what we hoped for with no hidden disappointments. It has everything a family (of six in our case) needs for a relaxing base to explore the surrounding area. We liked everything.

This website has a character limit for reviews, so here is a summary of our findings:

VEHICLE

Lovely though the pool and nearest beach are, you simply cannot enjoy the best the area has to offer without a vehicle. The group of 10 properties is situated in a well-maintained, gated complex, and each property has its own ample, designated space benefitting from a sun cover.

POOL

Our kids made a bee-line for the pool. We mostly used it at the start and end of each day, yet rarely found ourselves sharing with other residents. In keeping with the apartment community, the pool area is clean and tidy, with just the right amount of paved space around the sides for sunbathing. The impressive-palm-dominated entrance adds a touch of class.

AIR-CON

Air-conditioning throughout was reassuring, and it functioned efficiently when needed. We found, however, that the combination of property location and its being positioned on the first and second floors, resulted in plenty of air-flow throughout, which meant we only resorted to air-conditioning a few times.

BEACHES

Cap Roig beach is pleasant, but if you have a vehicle, you may wish to check out the beaches a little further along the coast. There's something about the Ebro delta that makes the water a tad murky (like the sea around the UK), which was especially evident when we went to check out the flamingos at la bassa de les Olles, yet Cala Forn and Cala Calafat (a few miles north) were right up our street. Like secluded Cornish coves, they offer lovely, pale sand and we found the water to be much clearer.

MOSQUITOES

We went armed with repellents and soothing ointments, but we weren't bothered by mosquitoes at all in and around the apartment, and only picked up a handful of bites while out on our travels.

FAVOURITE PLACES

Aside from the beaches, we loved Tortosa with its splendid castle remains in the centre and jumble of terracotta buildings in every direction. And the subsequent drive to the very top of Mont Caro (4,747 feet) with its spectacular views was breathtaking.

OVERALL

Everything was well-equipped and comfortable. There wasn't any occasion when we said, "if only..." All in all, it was more than we hoped for. Would we recommend it to others? Without hesitation; 100% yes!
