About Peter Hodder-Williams

We are an Anglo-Catalan couple who live about 30 minutes inland from Altafulla, so we are close enough to meet you directly at the beginning and end of your stay and sort out any issues that may arise while you are here.

Peter Hodder-Williams purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Peter Hodder-Williams chose Tarragona

Altafulla is one of the very few villages on the coast of Tarragona that hasn't been over-developed. It has a beautiful old town centre (where we were married 20 years ago) and in general is a quiet, family oriented resort. We bought the apartment as a second home to enjoy ourselves and to make available to guests when it is empty.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is in a small gated community with three blocks of six apartments that share a common garden/pool area. The pool has a very shallow "shallow end" making it ideal for families with small children.

The terrace which overlooks the swimming pool is where we spend much of our time: perfect for breakfast in the morning sun and wonderful suppers on balmy evenings.

Perfect family holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We found this apartment through an internet search and had not visited this part of Spain before.

We were delighted when we arrived - immaculate apartment and a beautiful pool. However, it is the hospitality of the hosts that set this experience apart - nothing was too much trouble, even fresh vegetables ready for us and refreshed halfway through the holiday! We were made to feel very welcome.

Even though we visited in the middle of August, the pool was rarely busy and in fact we often had it to ourselves. The apartment is well appointed including a dishwasher, a nespresso machine and air conditioning. Towels for bathroom, pool and beach are all provided, which is a great help with the packing.

Altafulla is a very Spanish resort, with few English people, but all the people we met, especially the other families who shared the pool, were very friendly.

The beach (around 500m) is golden sand and crowded at times, but there is always space to sit and the water is a perfect temperature for swimming.

We visited the Roman ruins (walking distance) which were impressive, and Karting Altafulla which our boys (12, 9 and 7) really enjoyed. We didn't venture further than that, as we had everything we needed close by. There seems to be lots of other things to do in the region, though, if you prefer a more adventurous holiday.

Overall, a fantastic apartment in a perfect location, I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Greta place for a peaceful family holiday

  • 5 of 5

A pleasure to arrive at a holiday apartment equipped with everything you need just to walk in a relax.

The apartment is smart and well equipped, and the owners friendly and helpful. The small community it is part of was equally relaxed and friendly, with a good sized swimming pool..

Altafulla is a brilliant place for a "bucket and spade" holiday for children with a huge sandy beach, and a "sit and watch the world go by" by holiday for adults. 95% Spanish families, topped up by a few British, French and Dutch - no Sky TV bars, no "All day English breakfast", but plenty of relaxed small Spanish restaurants.

Easy train links to Tarragona and Barcelona, and ideal for driving to the local wine region.

All in all a great fortnight's holiday.

Beautiful, immaculately-kept place...lovely owners

  • 5 of 5

We have been using Owners Direct for several years now and this was by far the most positive experience. A beautiful, well looked-after apartment, spotlessly clean with fully-functioning facilities (sleek and modern kitchen equipment, reliable wifi, tv etc). The owners - who live just 30 minutes away - are genuinely good people and we felt very welcome and looked after... it was lovely to see vases of fresh flowers upon our arrival, and gifts of homegrown vegetables in the fridge!

And Altafulla itself is a really lovely little town, with plenty of old streets to walk through and a clean, sandy beach close by, and absolutely zero tacky tourism feel.

We would definitely hope to return to this apartment at some point in the next couple of years.

Luxurious, comfortable and family friendly

  • 5 of 5

We had a relaxing stay in Altafulla. The apartment was bigger than we expected with lots of room the five of us. It was very clean with fresh flowers and local produce on arrival. The beds were very comfortable and the towels and pillows were of high quality. The air conditioning worked well in every room which was essential in the heat of July. We had the pool virtually to ourselves mid week, with the owners of the neighbouring apartments arriving at the weekends. The nearby beach is very clean and slopes gently into the sea making it very child friendly. The owners are very friendly and approachable. Highly recommended.

First class apartment in beautiful complex

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful immaculately-kept apartment in a lovely quiet complex. We are a family of 5 with 3 kids and we were very comfortable. The apartment is extremely well equipped and the owners went out of their way to make us feel welcome-there was even fresh veg and wine left for us when we arrived. Altafulla is a magical spot and it's only a 5 minute walk from the apartment to the beach. The beach is very safe with a long stretch of shallow water and great waves for the kids to play in. There are several small beach restaurants/bars run by friendly staff where we enjoyed tapas/paella...and sangria! There is plenty to do for families nearby but we spent most of our holiday on the beach! We cannot recommend Altafulla and this apartment highly enough-we came home thoroughly relaxed after a wonderful family holiday.
