Those guests who have already stayed in our apartment Maritima will know we are constantly decorating and upgrading to ensure that we move with technological and fashionable expectations, Casa Maritima is currently being completely refurbished to our very high standard and will give a unique experience of staying a single floor village seafront cottage with a garden and terrace facing the sea in the centre, just a few metres from restaurants and small shops.

We have just had a wonderful holiday in this VERY well equipped apartment. You will find EVERYTHING that you will need here. The position is excellent; watching the boats, near the beach and close to a wide range of restaurants. We have children who don't eat fish - which is a prevalent delicacy in the village - but we did find a few restaurants in L'Ampolla which we enjoyed. Owners are fantastic - giving loads of info about the village and local area. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Central with lovely view
We booked the accommodation for 2 two week stay with our two teenage boys. John the host is excellent and very helpful. The view is beautiful and for the firework display in July you have a great position to see everything. The positives are the view, centrally located close to shops, restaurants and beach, great shower in bathroom, kitchen well equipped, main bedroom comfortable, apartment well cleaned on arrival. Negatives are the 5 flights of stairs inc mezzanine, 75 steps in total, noise from the street from 6.30am until 1am each day in July. The second bedroom is very small with the beds been more like camp beds than proper beds, not suitable for big teenagers, the couch in the sitting room is broken and should be replaced, only one comfortable chair in sitting room, the balcony is very small and more like a ledge than a balcony. The WiFi is good when working but comes and goes, the satellite TV really doesn't exist, the best available was Sky News and Movies 4 Men!!! I felt that the reviews that we had read just did not reflect our experience of the standard of accommodation.
Bright, airy convenient appartment
We had a lovely holiday in L'Ampolla. The appartment was just right for 6 of us. Well equiped and very conveniently located. No air conditioning but the ceiling fans worked really well and because we were high up it was very airy. The beach was only a few minutes walk away and lots of love restaurants and bars beside you. No need for a car would def recommend it. Oh yeah the stairs are a of a hike but you get used to it after a few goes!
A Lovely Out of Season Break
L'Ampolla is a very pleasant small town on the coast with some good, sandy beaches, all amenities and (when I was there) plenty of warm sunshine, although there were also some very strong winds. The surrounding countryside is lovely and there are several pretty, historic and interesting places to visit within reasonable driving distance, or by train from the station near the apartment (you will occasionally hear trains, but I didn't find this intrusive).
The apartment was exactly as described, no nasty surprises, nice views over the Med and very central. The owners were very pleasant to deal with and clearly take a pride in the property, which was very well equipped indeed. It is worth bearing in mind that, because of its very convenient central location, some street noise below can be heard with the windows open - when I was there, I only found Saturday night to be particularly noisy, the rest of the time it was perfectly acceptable. In season, parking right near the apartment may be difficult - however, there is a public car park just a short walk away.
Personally, I did not find the lack of a lift in the building to be a major problem.
Finally - the cava, chocolates and crisps on arrival were a very welcome little "extra" - and there were some absolutely breathtaking sunsets!
Excellent holiday apartment
Spent a lovely few days in this excellent apartment. Spotless and well equipped . Near beach , bars etc. Very close to station so recommended to those not wanting to hire a car. Great view over the bay. Good facilities in town . John was really good and went out of his way to help us out with lots of info ( and provision of beachtowels ! )
Would recommend this little place for those wanting a quiet break in the sun.
Great location overlooking the harbour with loads of bars and restaurants within a short walk. John ( the guy with the keys) lives locally and has some great tips on where to wine and dine. Very Spanish, which is what we wanted, and barely a burger to be found.
Inland the best place we found was Miravet which you just MUST visit. Watch out for bitey things in the Ebro delta even during the day. The stairs up to the flat keep you fit. And if you like watching Spanish football you will have plenty of choice for here to go.
From the Owner
“We moved to L’Ampolla more than a decade ago in search of a more agreeable climate, we decided that the winters in London were much too cold and decided to take a great leap into an unknown world. It was almost by accident that we discovered the wonderful fishing village of L’Ampolla, much smaller when we arrived, however the local authorities and business’s community have been determined to develop their village with a generous and stylish design. The Marina attached to the ancient tiny fishing port fits perfectly into the natural bay and has attracted many beautiful yachts together with many excellent restaurants and new shops. This has brought valuable investments to L’Ampolla which has enabled the village to extend the elegant promenade with beautiful gardens and artwork to line to sea-front with long sandy beaches and exciting coves, safe and cleaned each spring for our international visitors, who are made to feel very welcomed in our village.”
Activity and Interests
The apartment is ideally situated as a base for visiting Valencia, or to admire the famous architecture of Barcelona. Enjoy the Arabic and Roman history of Tortosa and Tarragona. The marina and fishing village of L'Ampolla with its small family run shops and restaurants, truly enjoys the best if both worlds, with its own mainline train station and just minutes from the coastal A7 motorway, yet it still maintains its stylish village charm, wonderful safe beaches, secret coves, shoreline nature walks, amazing fishing, bird watching and clear blue warm waters of the Mediterranean. Why not take in L'Ampollas magical summer with fiestas with themes of traditional giants, scarlet devils, spectacular fireworks, catalan music and of course the local bulls. The Ebro river is central to ancient and modern catalan history and the EbroDelta has one of Europe's largest bird sanctuaries and nearby is Universal Studios Port Aventura with an exhilarating water park.
Other Activities: canoeing and watersports and cat fishing on the river Ebro and birdwatching on the nearby Delta
