Lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic time here. The villa catered to our every need and we were so pleased with its location in a quiet neighbourhood with stunning views from the rooftop terrace. The villa was clean and well maintained and the pool and garden areas very attractive.

The booking process was very smooth and any questions we had answered quickly and efficiently. The local agents were very helpful. Would definitely recommend to family and friends.

A holiday to remember...

  • 5 of 5

Myself and a group of four friends (ages 22-25) visited Casa Heather this summer for a luxurious getaway in the sun - we definitely got what we came for. We flew in to Barcelona in the morning and picked up the car rental from the airport, making our way to L'Ametlla de Mar and les Tres Cales that day (only 1.5hrs drive via toll route). Stopping off at the local Mercadonna to buy our weeks' worth of food (and drink) - this being only a 10 minute drive away, but there are local shops closer to the villa. Upon arrival I was impressed by the upkeep and maintenance of the interior and exterior of the villa, it is an impressive build placed on the corner of the estate ensuring our holiday was quiet, safe and private for the duration. We never felt overlooked or at risk throughout our break as we lounged around the pool with music. No need to pull straws when deciding rooms either as each of them were really inviting - all clean, comfortable and spacious with plenty of bathroom space (there are 3!) to spread ourselves out for the week.

For the most part of our week we spent at the villa and the surrounding estate. The villa is perfect for alfresco dining as we often had breakfast, lunch and dinner sat on the terrace, by the barbeque or near the pool. We made good use of the comfortable sun-loungers (and plenty of books) provided. The pool area is a good sun-trap and you can enjoy sun from dawn until 9/10pm, however, it was easy for some of us to take a break from the sun and remain outside when sitting on the terrace. There was a good selection of DVD's, books and board games available to keep us entertained in the evenings (on top of some home-made Sangria). We spent a couple of evenings out at local restaurants Bambalina and Hotel Llorca as informed by the detailed Guest Manual and we weren't disappointed by the food and service - the seafood Paella is a must! We opted for a car rental to allow easy travel to local destinations. This made it very easy to go to Almadrava Beach (10 minute drive) one day and PortAventura Park another (30 minutes). The Caribe Aquatic Park was a really good choice for a day out and we all felt like big kids with the impressive, and somewhat daunting, water slides. Our final day was spent in Barcelona where we enjoyed a free walking tour of the city and saw the sites of Las Rambla and Placa de Catalunya - I recommend visiting the bars and restaurants on Placa Reial.

Overall, the entire holiday was really memorable for all of us!

beautiful pool and outdoor space.

  • 4 of 5

Had a lovely stay for 1 week in may. Villa had everything we needed, except perhaps wifi, which was a bit intermittent. Pool was very clean, but sadly too cold for us to use as our weather was not great. Great BBQ area and dining space and lovely rooftop terrace. Nice beaches nearby. Thanks for the tips on visiting Peniscola and Miravet. Both well worth the visit. Very quiet area, nice walks from villa.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, we are very pleased you enjoyed your stay at Casa Heather. For information, we subsequently found out there was a fault with the wifi router. This has been replaced and at the same time we had the signal upgraded to give a better line speed, so the wifi should be much more reliable in the future.

Lovely relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely, bright, spacious villa and one of the best equipped we have stayed in. The beds were really comfortable and everything was clean. Spent most of our time relaxing around the villa and good sized pool. The walled terrace area is quite private and great for sunbathing and nicely lit up in the evenings for outside dining/barbecues. Tres Cales is a quiet urbanization and the local beaches are a short drive on quiet roads. We particularly enjoyed Cala Jordi and Cala Forn which have nice beach bars and safe, sandy, protected swimming. L'Ametlla de Mar is a pleasant and very Spanish fishing town with good choice of restaurants - particularly good for fish! There is a restaurant on the estate, Bambalinas, about 15 minutes walk, and we enjoyed a nice meal here on a couple of occcasions. Overall a very relaxing, enjoyable holiday and would recommend and definitely visit again.

Casa Heather - well appointed comfortable villa

  • 4 of 5

Our party of 7 found the villa very spacious and had everything we needed to make it a very comfortable stay. It is located at the far end of Tres Cales which was nice and quiet. Our food pack that we ordered unfortunately wasn't there when we arrived after midnight so we had nothing to eat or drink until the following morning when we went shopping. This caused some discontent initially.

The pool is lovely and the terrace meant that we could stay out of the sun when we wanted. Only difficulty we had was the location which despite excellent instructions , we found the grid confusing and took some time finding our way home until at least day 3! It took us 45 minutes to get to the supermarket on the estate, but to be honest I think that was just us! It's only 5 minutes by car if you go the right way.

Beaches at Amellta were not nice but it is more of a fishing port. We found a great one at L'almadevra and the coves/ creeks were good fun if you're a strong swimmer. Good choice of restaurants in Amellta. There is an excellent folder in the villa with lots of really useful info and recommendations. Make sure you make a reservation at the restaurant as we were turned away at the one on the estate on the first night but luckily found a takeaway pizza flyer in the post box...excellent pizzas and fast delivery even at 11.30 pm!

Peniscola worth a visit but over a 1 hour drive..take the auto piste rather than the N340 as this reduces the time substantially and a lot less lorries!

All in all a lovely week in a lovely villa.

Picturesque villa magical view

  • 5 of 5

As a family of four we travelled through France to get to Spain with our family dog by use of a mobile home. On arrival to Casa Heather we were absolutely thrilled! A beautiful villa, fantastically maintained with breath taking views.

We were very impressed with the villa handbook that was so helpful and full of information about the surrounding towns and beaches.

The villa wi-fi was a must for my teenage daughter and the pool was fantastic, air-conditioning throughout which was much needed.The roof terrace was fantastic for those early morning breakfasts with the mountains in the background.

Our family pet was welcome and communication with the owners was both prompt and helpful.Casa Heather is settled in a very peaceful location with the benefit of being close enough to the excitement of Salou and Cambrils both with fantastic beaches and restaurants, or if you want to see some night life. As well as water parks and Portaventura theme park close by.

Local amenities close by such as supermarkets, pharmacy ect. would recommend the use of a vehicle, although there are bus stops and a taxi service available. but we had the RV which was fantastic for excursions during the day, although the smaller towns roads are very narrow but weren't a problem.

Will definitely recommend to friends and family, absolutely no negative comments.

Location

Car: necessary

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. 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, 25 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.

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. PortAventura World, an entertainment resort comprising of three parks; PortAventura Park, Caribe Aquatic Park and the newly opened Ferrari Land, is 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.
