About the property

Villa in Calafat, L'Ametlla de Mar, Costa Dorada - Views over Beach and Marina - with Mountains behind

Our villa is located on the cliff-top overlooking the marina and beach at Calafat, a small development of mainly detached houses about 5 kilometres from the pretty fishing village of L'Ametlla de Mar. There is a supermarket as well as several restaurants/bars within 10 minutes' walk of the house. L'Ametlla de Mar has all the local amenities you could want. The historic city of Tarragona is 25 miles away as is the Portaventura theme park. The pool is protected with a wall - safe for small children. Please note that lets of less than six days will be charged a supplement of £100.

About Valerie Brown

We have owned Villa Ana since 2003 and have let it for holidays for the last 5 years. We have now both retired. I was a secondary teacher of French and Spanish while Peter was an accountant. Peter spends his time painting while now I aim to teach myself Catalan and spend more time in my garden.

We have three grown up children who also enjoy coming to Spain with their children and friends.

Valerie Brown purchased this villa in 2003

Why Valerie Brown chose Baix Ebre

We initially bought an apartment in L'Ametlla de Mar and then when the opportunity to buy a villa right on the sea front arose we bought it and then sold the flat. The villa is in a beautiful situation with wonderfil panoramic views of the sea and mountains.

There is a pretty ebclosed garden as well as a pool.

The beach below us has a beautiful lagoon where you can swim safely. The mountains behind are also lovely.

What makes this villa unique

The villa has stunning views. You wake in the morning with a view of the Mediterranean. The sea changes all the time - so the colours are constantly changing.

We have a lovely garden with its own pool and barbecue. We are directly above a safe beach which is about five minutes walk away at one end of the marina. It is very convenient for shops, restaurants and cafes.

The villa has TV with BBC and ITV channels and internet access.

The station at L'Ametlla is five miles away. There are trains to Barcelona, Portaventura and to Tarragona. The mountains and countryside behind the villa are also very pretty and worth exploring.

Wonderful and relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Vila Ana for 11 days. It was just fantastic. The pool was perfect. The house is spacious (2 adults and 3 kids). The area is very quiet and it was very relaxing waking up by bird songs and hearing the waves from the ocean. We where there in May and we hardly saw a car driving by and just a few persons walking by. We enjoyed our meals outside and it was good to be able to choose from 3 different places to eat, depending on how the weather was. It was also nice to have such a nice living room with comfy sofas and both TV and fireplace.

There are two beaches close by, but still you need to walk for about 10 minutes but we would recommend driving for a few minutes and go to Playja Calafató or Cala Forn, they are just amazing and worth the ride.

It was very nice to have such a relaxing place to chill and relax but still so close to places like Cambrils, Salou, Tarragona and PortAventura. All comunications with Valerie was very good and she was very helpful.

Thank you for an amazing time in Spain :)

Could not have been better!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent Villa. The pool was great, The views from the balcony are fantastic. a really peaceful setting. Calafat itself has a couple of nice beaches, a restaurants and a shop. A short drive away are several larger towns with multiple restaurants etc, Tarragona is 30 mins up the road and is a really interesting place to visit with some great restaurants. Also it is within a reasonable distance for a day trip to Barcalona.

Valerie was brilliant. Sent all the info I needed including detailed directions from the airport and some useful info about the area.

I would definitely recommend Villa Ana.

Great view - perfect villa

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house, it had all needed amenities, a lovely pool and a fabulous view! it;s close to Tarragona, PortAventura and Barcelona, but at the same time it;s in a very quiet area where you can get all the rest you need for a holiday. the beach 5 minutes away has fine sand and the sea it;s great. Thanks to Val and Peter for renting it to us!

Good Family Accommodation

  • 5 of 5

A first time abroad for our two grandchildren Staying here was a good experience for them.

We found the villa very comfortable and well provided. Good views of sea and mouintains. Convenient for local shops, and plently of shopping choice down the road in Ametlla.

Very quiet out of season (no half term English influx). We enjoyed local coves and trips to Ebro Delta and mountains in our short 6 day stay, and just relaxing.

beautiful Calafat Villa

  • 4 of 5

Just wanted to share our experience of this Villa and the area with everyone. We booked the Villa through the owner and having spoken to them on the phone found they were more than helpful and informative, nothing was to much trouble. The Villa itself is in a fantastic location with vistas to the sea and the mountains in the background, very peacful location although not sure what it is like in the height of summer, it was end of the season when we stayed so everywhere was quite, such a shame as the weather was very good. Everything you need is at the Villa, Sky tv so you don't miss your favourite tv programmes, and the wlcome gift of milk ham bread butter wine beer and coke was much appreciated as we arrived at 8pm although our children would have appreciated Wifi and we all would have liked air conditioning as it was still quite warm at night!

Calafat is ideally located for the rest of the coast Cambrils, Salou, the Elbro delta and of course the mountains, we had our most scenic drive from the Poblet Monastery through to Prades and on to Suriana which has to have the most beautiful scenery in the area and less then 1 hour drive from Calafat.

Tarragona is a beautiful vibrant city full of history although we didn't manage to see all of it we did go to the Aquaduct, the Amphitheatre and the Roman Circus all of which we found truly stunning.

To some up our holiday, we all truly enjoyed it, the children aged 9, 12, 14 all loved the pool very clean as was the villa, lots to see in the area. Wish we were still there!

A lovely relaxing villa with great views

  • 5 of 5

The location of this villa is perfect - the view over the sea and the lovely pool. The nearest beach is very close, but we never made it to the beach as the pool is so nice! The villa is well equipped and cosy. The nice comfy sofa and large TV were an added bonus when we had an evening in. We also loved Peter's paintings of the local area!

There is a small but well stocked supermarket about 15 minutes walk away, and a cafe next door which sells excellent coffee, has fresh baked bread and free wifi. There is also a large supermarket nearby in L'Ametlla del Mar.

We visited the Delta L'Ebre which was really interesting - you can take a boat tour, hire bikes. We also drove into the mountains and visited the monasteries at Santa Crues and Poblet, and the walled town of Mont Blanc.

We had a lovely relaxing holiday and would definitely recommend Villa Ana to others.
