About susan nelson

Sue and Dave live in England with our 4 children but have been visiting Spain for many years. Our property is managed by a local agent, Steve, who is a family friend and lives locally on his organic mountain farm. Steve will help you with any questions you may have during your stay, and ensure that you have a welcome pack of local food for your arrival. Transfers to and from Reus airport can also be arranged locally.

susan nelson purchased this house in 2012

Why susan nelson chose Baix Ebre

We bought the property in Bitem as the area has access to some wonderful beaches as well as fantastic mountain walking and fishing opportunities on the famous River Ebre. The village of Bitem is very friendly with some great traditional Spanish bars and only 5 minutes from the medieaval town of Tortosa.

What makes this house unique

Our house is a village house as opposed to being situated in the mountains. It is located in a secluded village square, only 5 minutes walk to Bitem's 6 bars and other amenities.

The house is 10 minutes walk to the river Ebre and 5 minutes drive to the main town of Tortosa. It is an hours drive from Reus airport and only 30 minutes drive to the nearest beaches.

The house itself is a converted old wine cellar that belonged to the local mansion house. It benefits from mains electricity and water supplies and is fully modernised throughout with three toilets and two bathrooms. The house has four bedrooms, sleeps 7 people comfortably and has a private pool and sun lounging area.

Heavenly Break

  • 5 of 5

I have now enjoyed three superb holidays at this property and look forward to making it an annual trip. Situated just outside (a five minute walk) the quaint village of Bitem, this fully fitted property is an ideal base whether your preference is for relaxing, sight seeing or adventurous walks. A car is recommended in order to get the best from the visit whether that be a trip to the mountains to spy the vultures and eagles (if you're lucky!), a trip into the lovely town of Tortosa to sample many of the restaurants and bars or simply visit the museum or to relax at the beach at L'Ampolia about a 45 minute drive away.

Steve, the owner's representative, is there at any time if needed. The property itself cannot be faulted and the small pool is a welcome relief from the hot days in the sun. This is how Spain should be experienced and enjoyed.

An authentic Catalonian experience.

  • 5 of 5

The property is within reach of Reus airport which meant we were able to get flight from East Midlands at a good price. I was impressed with the airline we used (Jet2) and the timings of the flight meant that we had relaxed journeys both ways. Car hire was also remarkably cheap.

The house is spacious and comfortable. One of the best things is that it is maintained by an Englishman (Steve) who lives close by; this means that there is someone readily available .in case of any need or problem. The pool is immaculately maintained.

The village of Bitem is within easy walking-distance. It is a quiet sleepy place but it has the basic needs (shops, banks, bars, restaurants).and the city of Tortosa is short drive away.

This area offers something for every type of tourism. The agricultural and natural environments are beautiful. The river and mountains are stunning. We took a walk on Mount Caro which afforded fantastic views.

For heritage and culture you are spoiled for choice. Tortosa has a long and fascinating history.Food and drink in the Bitem local bars and restaurants are excellent and cheap. But there is also fine dining available in Tortosa. The parador is definitely worth a visit.We went there for brunch and looked down upon the city.

I shall definitely re-visit. And I will recommend this gem to my friends.

Holiday Fun

  • 5 of 5

Relaxing local walking from the propriety to bitem village and also through hills, along the river ebre, beside orange groves. Very friendly local population. Tortosa, a short drive from bitem is fasenating with a castle, beautiful gardens and an exceptionally interesting museum. Of all the beautiful areas and scenery we visited, my favourite was the swarouski bird observatory on the river ebre delta with views of numerous and fascinating birds.

Great Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous holiday in this well-equipped gem of a property that was secluded but within easy reach of supermarkets, great attractions and local amenities. We visited the Caribe Waterpark, Tortosa, local beaches and had mountain walks - we even visited Barcelona (an easy train journey from Tortosa). It was great to get back to the house though to play in the swimming pool and enjoy a short walk into the friendly village of Bitem to have a drink at the local bars and use the full size Astro-turf pitch and full size swimming pool (which was a bonus with two sports mad boys aged 13 and 10!).

great break

  • 5 of 5

A lovely break in a very comfortable home. Great location for a taste of the real Spain. The house is spacious, clean and well equipped. The village location is brilliant with a supermarket and bars. The local people are very friendly and helpful. The town of tortosa is just 5 minutes drive away and is a delight to explore. My friend went on fishing trip and caught a 120lb catfish! Can't wait to book again for next year.

House in Bitem

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely relaxing week in this spacious, comfortable and well- equipped house. We were celebrating a special family occasion and there were 8 of us, ranging in age from 11 - 73 years. If you want to sample the 'real' Spain, the location is perfect. A car is essential so that you can explore the mountains, surrounding countryside and nearby Tortosa. The pool and barbecue are added bonuses. We would certainly recommend this property.
