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.

Masia dels Molineros is a hidden pearl, situated within walking distance of the village and only 3,5 km. from the beaches of Costa Daurada. The house sleeps comfortably 5 persons in two double rooms and a single room.
The house originates from the 18. century but has recently been reformed. It is situated on the mountain side with the village on the other side of a small stream, making its way betweeen the village and the house. The property is very private, as the large garden is used for a small plantation of olive- and fruit trees, where you, in the season, can pick your own lemons and oranges. You can also find many cosy corners to relax.
As most authentic houses, the house has a cosy structure, with many levels. In the lower level, directly connected with the outdoor terrace and the pool area, you find two areas for dining, and one of them also with a sofa corner and TV. In addition, to make use of the old fire place, a gas-grill for big paellas has been installed. Two steps up is the kitchen, which is very well-equipped and connected to the outside by a second door.
The outdoor terrace in connection with the swimming pool is really the big quality of this house. Here you can relax either by the terrace table or in the chill-out area in the shade, while the children are entertained in the swimming pool. The swimming pool is very nice for a refreshing dip, and additionally, in one side there is underwater seating, so you can sit in the pool with your drink or perhaps a glass of Cava on the edge.
On the lower floor of the house, you find the only bathroom, which has two wash-basins and shower.
The bedrooms are situated on the first floor. A connecting room is equipped with one bed and can serve as a single room if necessary. From here, there is also access to a very nice terrace with a wonderful view to the mediterranean Sea in the distance. There is also access to the two spacious double rooms, one with double bed, and the other with two single beds.
The second floor is one big multi-purpose room, which can be used as living room or additional sleeping capacity, as there is a sofa bed and two fold-out beds. In the summer, it can be a bit hot under the roof, but if you open the windows, the Sea breeze will help getting the temperature down. In this room, there is a television as well.
Outside, in the level below the swimming pool, few steps down, a stairway lead you to the private olive- and fruit grove, which you can enjoy from the covered terrace with barbecue , where you can enjoy the sunset over the village. It is amazing that a place so close to a village and to the beach can be so disconnected.
In the village, which is within 10 minutes walking distance, you find several restaurants and all you need for shopping, supermarket, bakery, cafés (or the library) with WIFI-internet etc. There are also sports-facilities such as football and paddle tennis. There is a shuttle bus to the beaches, as an alternative to drive down yourself.
Directly from the house, is it possible to make a walk up to the top of the mountain, where you have a fantastic view all the way to Tarragona. The beaches are less than 4 km. from the house, so if you like a day on the beach as part of your holiday, Masia dels Molineros is ideal. You can also drive to the wine districts Penedés or Priorat, the historical city of Tarragona or the amusement park Universal Studios Port Aventura. The fantastic city of Barcelona can be reached within one hour in car, or you can park in Sant Vincent de Calders, where you have frequent trains to Barcelona.

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
The areas main attraction is the entertainment park Universal Studios Port Aventura. It consists of an aqua park and an amusement park, which can be visited together or separately. If you let the kids decide, you can easily spend 2-3 days here.
