Living local is a great chance to make a real difference using "Responsible Tourism" which are supporting the local Catalan farmers as it aids maintaining traditional ways of living. Renovating the beautiful country homes, with a high degree of respect, stops the areas of mass tourism to grow larger and preserve the stunning scenery, wildlife and glory in Catalonia's historic buildings and precious heritage.

Casa Alerny is a vineyard for production of wine and olive oil from the 15th century, which is now reformed and let out as a holiday home with swimming pool. The surrounding wine- and olive fields are still cultivated by the Cedo-family, who now live in Barcelona. The harvest is sold to some of the big and famous producers in the nearby Priorat district.
The scenic view to the vineyards, the olive trees and the impressive mountains La Serra de Llaberia in the horizon can be enjoyed from the extensive terrace and from the pool area. The house is privately situated on thetop of a small hill and with only 600 meters walk to the village La Serra D´Almos.
The house has 4 double rooms (8 persons) included in the price, which have own bathrooms and are situated on the main floor of the house. 3 addtional bedrooms and two bathrooms are available for bigger groups on the second floor. The price per extra bedrooms is 225 Euros/bedroom/week.

To the left, the 4 double rooms are distributed on both side of the aisle, three of them with bathrooms ensuite. To the right, you find the modern kitchen with dining area, and if you go straight on, you enter the enormous living room with dining area, TV-corner and fireplace. There is a great view.
From this room, you can enter the very extensive terrace with a covered part, in case you prefer shadow. There is a BBQ available and also a table tennis. The terrace gives a very authentic Catalan atmosphere. From the terrace, there is a stairway down to the pool area. You will need to pass a gate, so it is very secure if you bring small children.

Description of the region :
With its 130.000 inhabitants is Tarragona the smallest of Catalonia's four province capitols, but with its situation on the beautiful Costa Daurada, the historical town centre and the landmark the roman amphi-theatre, the city has a lot to offer.
In the roman time, the town was called Tarraco and was province capitol of Hispania Tarraconensis.
From the artistic point of view, there are not many places that have such a large number of monuments and tourist attractions concentrated in such a small area as Tarragona has. Iberian civilization remains are plentiful in the whole region, as well as multiple Roman vestiges, especially in Tarragona city, where you can follow the traces of Rome in the Catalonian region.
The splendorous past of the city is enclosed in its several well preserved edifices. Its most notable landmarks and tourist attractions are the Roman Amphitheatre in Tarragona and the Cistercian monastery in Poblet, as well as many other places of interest within the capital city, just to mention some examples. Reus, home town of the internationally famous Gaudí, is nowadays a centre for Modernism architecture, a kind of art also to be found in many wine cellars through the whole Tarragona province.
The International Dixieland Festival takes place every year just before Easter. In the first week of July, is held in the bay Punta del Miracle a firework competition between six invited pyrotechnics. In the middle of September, the Santa Tecla Festival takes place, one of the biggest traditional Spanish festivals.
The Costa Daurada shoreline is comprised of a total of 13 municipalities, which, over a stretch of 92 kilometres, offer some sixty different beaches in all shapes and sizes from the small, secluded coves of Mont-roig del Camp-Miami Platja to the dramatic cliffs of Torredembarra, from the high-iodine waters of El Vendrell-Coma-ruga to the fine sand and clear shallows of Salou. There are even nudist beaches, such as Torn Beach in Hospitalet de l'Infant.
Several Costa Daurada beaches have been awarded the blue flag by the European Foundation for Environmental Education, in addition to other distinctions, such as that earned by Creixell from the same organisation for its wheelchair-accessible beach or the Ecoplayas Award for clean and sustainable beaches and ISO 14001 environmental management system certification earned by the beaches of Calafell. The towns of Calafell, Salou and Cambrils have moreover been officially certified as family tourism destinations by the Catalan government.
