Overview

About the property

Villa in L'Amettla de Mar, Costa Dorada - Peaceful Location, Ideal For Family Holidays

Casa Laura is a lovely 3 bedroom, air-conditioned villa situated on a quiet road within the residential development of Las Tres Calas, 2km from 3 blue flag beaches. The villa has been equipped to a very high standard and has a private swimming pool with roman steps, built-in barbecue, off-road parking and large roof terrace with spectacular mountain views. There is a mature hedge surrounding the pool, making the garden very private. The pool and barbecue areas are protected by balustrade walls with lockable gates to make the outside area safer for younger children. The traditional Spanish fishing town of L’Ametlla de Mar, with its own railway station and a variety of shops, bars and restaurants is 4km away. There are 3 restaurants, small supermarket, bakery and children's playground on the estate. This is a wonderful area for family holidays and has some of the most beautiful, unspoilt coastline on the Mediterranean with many small sandy beaches and coves set amongst dramatic cliffs. Costa Caribe Water Park and Port Aventura, considered to be the best theme park in Spain, are only 25 minutes drive away. NEW FOR 2017: Ferrari Land, a theme park unique in Europe, is being constructed next to Port Aventura. The grand opening is scheduled for Easter 2017.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for providing us with such a super location for our much needed holiday. The villa was gorgeous, clean and complete with all to make our holiday go with a swing. Rachel & Steve, Loughborough

We had an excellent holiday here. The villa was very clean and well equipped with washing machine, dishwasher, Sky TV and sun loungers a welcome bonus. Portaventura/Salou was only 20 mins away by car. There are some very nice beaches along the coast road, some only 5 minutes drive from the villa. Communication with the owner was very good. We were very sad to leave. Matthew, Portsmouth

Many thanks for all: your villa is beautiful, well-equipped, pleasant and clean. Your booklet is well-done and practical. Our holidays were a great success. Virginie, Vaucresson, France

Location

Car: recommended

Distances to local airports:

Reus Airport - 40km

Barcelona Airport - 135km

Castellón Airport - 110km

Ryan air fly into Reus and both Ryan Air and Easy Jet have a frequent service to Barcelona. Thompson Airways operate charter flights to Reus from May to October from selected regional airports, including Bristol, Gatwick, Manchester and Newcastle. Ryan Air also fly from Stansted to Castellón. Jet2 fly from East Midlands to Reus.

Reus is only a 25 minute drive from the villa, while Barcelona is just under 90 minutes. A car is recommended to best enjoy the area and for easy transfer from the airport. The nearest railway station is at L’Ametlla de Mar, with a direct line to Barcelona.

Location

The villa is situated on the quiet estate of Tres Cales. There is a bar/restaurant next to a children's playground within 15 minutes walk and a small supermarket, bakery, tapas bar and restaurant at the entrance to the estate, 30 minutes walk from the villa. The traditional fishing town of L'Ametlla de Mar is just over 5 minutes by car (4km) and has a good selection of shops, harbour side bars and restaurants. There is a large Mercadona Supermarket with plenty of parking 5 minutes drive from the villa.

Beaches

There are three Blue Flag sandy beaches within 5 minutes drive and there are many other lovely beaches and coves to discover nearby. This area has some of the most beautiful, undeveloped coastline on the Mediterranean and none of the beaches are crowded, even in July and August.

Places to Visit

Barcelona, the European city of culture, 90 minutes away by road or two hours by train, is a truly fascinating city to visit. Port Aventura, considered to be the best theme park in Spain, and the Costa Caribbe Water Park are situated at Salou, a lively tourist resort approximately 25 minutes by car. The historic cities of Reus and Tarragona, with its impressive Roman buildings and amphitheatre, are 30 minutes drive away. Towards the South is the Ebro Delta Natural Park, famous for its pink flamingo’s, rare species of birds and monstrous catfish. This is a haven for fishermen and fishing is permitted along the public areas of the River Ebro, although a fishing licence must be purchased from the local village town hall. The medieval town of Peñíscola, one of the locations where the epic film El Cid was shot, is 85km to the south and also well worth a visit. If you venture inland you will discover beautiful mountain scenery and remote villages.

A 'guest manual' is provided at the villa giving comprehensive details of places to visit in the area, local restaurants and facilities.

Exceeded all our expectations.

  • 5 of 5

Had a fun family holiday here in June. Our grandchildren loved the pool and spent many happy hours splashing around. We enjoyed many evenings eating and relaxing in the walled barbecue area or on the front terrace overlooking the pool. The pool is protected and the garden enclosed so we didn't have to worry about the children's safety while we were relaxing. Everything was very clean and all the arrangements with the owner went very smoothly. We would definitely recommend to others and hope to return sometime in the future.

Lovely holiday

  • 5 of 5

Villa was lovely, spacious, clean and comfortable. Really enjoyed the pool and there are plenty of areas to sunbathe that are not overlooked, so we enjoyed the privacy. Lovely local beaches just a short drive away - particularly enjoyed Sant Jordi which is a beautiful sandy cove only 5 minutes by car. There is a restaurant (Bambalinas) only 15 minutes walk, and we enjoyed a couple of meals there, but barbecue area at the villa was so nice we often stayed in to eat. All in all a great holiday and would highly recommend.

Villa was outstanding, everything we could have wished for and more !!

Area was nice and quiet, but offered a number of bars etc., and local shops within walking distance.

We loved every minute of our break and have already discussed booking again for next year but for 3 weeks next time.

Family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in June and had a lovely time. The villa was very clean and very well equipped with a nice pool and a private garden. We found the villa was easily big enough for a family of 4 and could easily accommodate a larger family. The location is very quiet but you are only a Ten minute drive from the beech of platja sant jordi and also to L'Ametlla de Mar which has a supermarket on the outskirts and lots of nice restaurants by the harbour. Salou with its large theme park is approx half an hour towards Barcelona. Tres Cales itself is a quiet place with a couple of bars and a small supermarket near the entrance to the estate .

Overall we were very pleased and hope to return next year.

The owner was very helpful and communication was quick and friendly.

Comfortable, clean, pretty villa

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic hot sunny week in early April. Ideal for a couple and also for travelling with a dog, very few rentals offer a safe enclosed garden area for either children or dogs, so this was very welcome.

Owner and villa manager both very helpful, friendly & quick to respond.

Nice area, quiet in April, only 5 mins drive to lovely deserted sandy beaches, good restaurants and cafes. Great to have BBC & main channels for the Grand Prix and masters golf, after 2 weeks in hotels & gites with only BBC news 24! Highly recommend this villa - we're planning to come back for a longer stay next time.
