3 bedroom Deltebre villa to rent
May 2019

The house is super good, it looks quite new and has many services (washing machine, iron, microwave, oven ...). The wifi does not work at all well and the tv channels either. The pool is small but perfect for a dip. The best: they accept pets !!

Travel guide

Villa rentals in the Costa Dorada

The Costa Dorada, also known as 'The Golden Coast', is situated south of Catalonia in the province of Tarragona. With over 200km of glorious fine sand stretching all the way to southwest Barcelona, it is home to some of the most stunning Blue Flag beaches in Spain. But much more than the postcard-perfect scenery and calm, crystalline waters, the Costa Dorada also has a fascinating Roman history, world-class gastronomy, rich wine making culture and perfect climate conditions for enjoying water sports and golf. Located southwest of Barcelona in the region of Catalonia, the golden coast is a favourite with sun-worshippers who flock to the Costa Dorada for its crystalline Mediterranean waters and over 200km of fine sand beaches.

With its diverse landscape, tranquil waters and ancient remains, you'll never be short of things to see and do. The Costa Dorada's close proximity to Barcelona makes it a perfect base to experience Spain's most popular regions. Visit the UNESCO World Heitage city of Tarragona with its fascinating Roman walls and remains, venture across the coastline's rugged terrain with a scenic bike ride, or enjoy a relaxing afternoon of sunshine and beautiful coastal views on one of Salou's vibrant beaches. Families will love Salou for its famous theme park PortAventura World, the largest in Spain with an impressive choice of water slides, 8-loop rollercoaster rides, play zones and restaurants.

Although the Costa Dorada is well developed for tourism, there are still plenty of traditional towns and fishing villages to explore for those who want a more authentic Catalan holiday. Some of these include Mont-Roig del Camp, Cambrils and L'Ampolla. If you want nothing more than to relax under the Mediterranean sun then the beaches of La Pineda and family-friendly Cala Penya Tallada cove in Salou are the perfect spots to wile away the hours.
