One the far side, there is a big lawn, where you can relax on the well-kept grass-carpet partly shaded by the palms, or you leave stress behind in one of the 10 sunloungers, perhaps with a drink at your side.
On the other side, the pool-house is situated. It has toilets in one end and in the other end there is an outdoor kitchen, barbecue and fridge. Along the pool-houses there is a very big, covered terrace, facing the swimming pool. A long table makes it cosy to eat all together in the breeze.

The football field is a very nice grass pitch (the owners produce “roll-grass” themselves) which can used when you want and even by night, as it has flood lights (20€ to use flood lights). Once a week, Marc and his friends play a game, so you will have the chance to see that not all Catalans play like Xavi, Pujol and Piquet!

- - - - The place was fantastic and the owner who lived closeby made the holiday totally unforgetable for all of us. They were a wonderful family who were warm and sincere and welcomed us in true spanish style. They made the kids holiday fantastic, trips on tractors , diggers etc showing them around, giving us fresh produce. Also my mum was unwell and they went way beyond the call of duty . Their son drove her to the hospital and waiting hours til she was discharged to drive her back . Wonderful people

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.
Universal studios Port Aventura
