The holiday home

Masia de Altafulla


Costa Daurada & Tarragona

Stay 2 minutes’ walk from the Mediterranean Sea in a beautiful historical mansion. Masia de Altafulla is a unique oasis in the touristic town of Altafulla.

Arriving to the town, at first glance, it looks like a place for mass-tourism, as there are some hotels and holiday apartments. However, you will get two very nice surprises.

When arriving to Masia de Altafulla, you will know by seeing the house, that this is quite a special place. The old historical house is facing the street, with more modern houses surrounding it.  When you pass through the gate, protected by a stone wall, a fantastic garden of about 5.000 m2 unfolds, like a small piece of country-side inside the village! In the huge garden you will find a lovely pool area with the 9 x 4 meter swimming pool and it is situated perfectly with a lot of privacy, and still with a lot of sun.

The second surprise is walking to the beach. Just down the road, a passage though the row of houses gave us a glance of the Mediterranean Sea from the house. And when passing through this gate built into the house, we found the most beautiful and cosy beach and boardwalk, with authentic fisherman-style town houses in a unbroken row. When visiting the beach we made a break on one of the beach-restaurants, enjoying a Café con leche , observing the relaxed beach life.

Hence, Masia de Altafulla is ideal for groups of friends or families with big children, who want the atmosphere of a Catalan Masia and a huge garden (almost a park), and still be within walking distance to all the facilities a liveliness beach town offers.

You can enter this impressive house either directly from the local street, or from the behind and then enter through the garden. The holiday home disposes of the entire first floor, while the very kind owners, based in Barcelona, have their second residence in the ground floor. The house has been in the family for generations and they have their own terrace private terrace with no visual contact to the pool area, so you have a great level of privacy.

The first floor is in total about 300m2. In one end, there are two very large bedrooms, one of them with private terrace and a bathroom ensuite, and the other bedroom has a view to the garden and it also  has bathroom ensuite. In the other end, you find two more bedrooms also with bathrooms ensuite. The setup is with four double beds, but 3 of the rooms can be changed into twin rooms if this is preferred. All rooms have fans. Two of the bathrooms have bath tubs and the other two showers.

Also on this floor, there is a well-equipped kitchen with stove, ceramic hotplates, dishwasher, washing machine, coffee maker, toaster, micro wave, kitchen utensils freezer and fridge.

The rest of the floor is a very large common area decorated in maritime style with a lounge area with TV and DVD and a dining area with a large dining table. From here, you can access the huge first floor terrace with a table for outside dining and a beautiful view. As the edge is not so high, we do not recommend this house to families with smaller children.

Included in the rental is also the rustic second floor with a big common room for playing or relaxing and two more bedrooms and a bathroom. This floor gets hot in July and August, so the owners only recommend using these rooms from September to June.

There is no busy road nearby, but the train line between Barcelona and Tarragona runs at the end of the garden, so you can hear the passing trains. The advantage is that you have the train station a 5 minutes’ walk from the house, with frequent trains to Barcelona and Tarragona. For this house, you can easily stay without a car.

Masia de Altafulla offers a unique opportunity to stay in a historical Catalan mansion house with a beautiful and charming beach within a short walking distance and a lot of restaurants and shops in walking distance as well.

To quote the Altafulla Tourisms website: Altafulla is an iconic and very privileged spot on the Costa Dorada where you can enjoy the peace and beauty of a town with a tremendous artistic and cultural heritage and numerous remains that bear witness to its history: the Vila Closa (the medieval complex enclosed by the ruins of the old walls, housing the church of Sant Martí and the castle), the Roman villa of Els Munts (declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO) and the seafront promenade (with the old Botigues de Mar of the former traders and fishermen), and where, at the same time, you can enjoy all kinds of sporting, cultural and festive activities all year round”.
