9 bedroom villa to rent in Tarragona Province, Spain
July 2019

Fabulous villa. Lots of space - far bigger than we expected & very well equipped. Really needs air con upstairs, the bedrooms and play room up stairs were unbearably hot! The house would benefit from a user manual containing info on how to use washing machine, hob, where local facilities are etc

9 bedroom villa to rent in Tarragona Province, Spain
July 2019

We booked this Villa as a large family group, 17 of us, all parents with kids (from 3 to 16). Firstly, the letting agent were excellent to deal with. We were due to get the keys at 5pm, but they helped us out and we got the keys at midday. From start to finish we had no hassle from them When we got to the villa we were delighted with how big and spacious it was. Huge bedroom, big communal spaces, huge garden etc. With 17 of us, we were worried we might get a bit claustrophobic, but no such worried. We had ample space for all the adults and kids. There are a lot of warnings about being 'quiet and respect the neighbours' we are all 'older' adults so we weren't having parties etc, but on the 2nd night 5 Police arrived to advise if to keep the noise down. I can be very sure we we were not making much noise, just chatting in the garden about 11pm (we have young kids in the party). i actually think they just used it as a way to check out who was staying there etc - but just be sure you are not booking this expecting to be having pool parties all night!!! The police were fine and we had no other visits, but it did unnerve us a bit. The location is fine, it's 15 mins straight walk to the main marina area and a couple of nice beaches. There a bigger beach is 20-25 mins as it's the far side of the marina. There's a lidl and another large supermarket within 3 minutes in a car, 10 min walk. I would recommend a car as initially you will be buying heavy items like water (and maybe beer :-) but it's an easy flat walk around the area. The wifi was perfect, all the kids streaming movies and you tube, adults streaming Love Island :-( - all with no issues etc. The pool was fine, the filter was a bit dodgey initially, but we never even noticed and it was fixed as soon as the handyman came and noticed. I've done the Villa thing now 5 times and this was by far the best. But overall, i'm a bit worried about telling everyone how great the experience was in this villa , in case I drive the price up and I can't get it next year!!!!

3 bedroom Costa Dorada 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 !!

4 bedroom Costa Dorada villa to rent
April 2019

We had a wonderful holiday in Holiday Home Rosa April 15th to 25th from the moment we arrived it was like home from home had that lovely feeling about it. We were delighted with the early check in the key was in the box exactly where we were told & my son had been told the code so we just had to walk in & get settled. We were very near the local shop so we were able to get a fresh supply for breakfast each morning the bread was to die for. We are hoping to go back again next year. Kids loved it

Travel guide

Villa rentals in historic Tarragona

Tarragona province is located in southeastern Catalonia, bordering Castellón, Teruel, Zaragoza, Lleida and also Barcelona, an hour away by car. Steeped in medieval history, Tarragona city was once known as Tarraco, the capital of the Roman province of Hispania Citerior. The first thing you'll notice about this beautiful region is the remains of a Roman amphitheatre overlooking the palm-lined coast. Take in its natural beauty from the Balcó del Mediterrani, or 'Balcony of the Mediterranean', rising 40m above seal level and the perfect place for a romantic stroll. In the distance the Poblet Monastery, founded in 1151, lies nestled under the foot of the Prades mountain range.

Travel back in time with the ancient Roman Aqueduct, also known as 'Devil's Bridge', where legend goes that the devil won a wager against a woman who bet her own soul. Visit the 1st century Roman Circus, once captivating over 3000 spectators with its brutal chariot races. When you've had your fill of sightseeing, unwind on the 15 km stretch of unspoiled coastline, surrounded by pinewood forests. In the evenings, the old town provides an ambient setting for a al fresco Spanish dinner of fresh seafood and rustic casseroles, while street performers serenade the crowds.

Tarragona's untouched landscape and mountainous terrain is a playground for bicyclists and cyclists, boasting around 70 trails and over 75km of paths. For something a little different, there are horse riding routes, schools and centres in Catalonia that are a great way to treat the kids. A trip to PortAventura water park, home to Europe's fastest and tallest rollercoaster, is guaranteed to keep them entertained, at just a 30 minute's walk from Salou's beaches. Our holiday rentals put you at the heart of it all; from villas near golf sites to family-friendly villas with WiFi.
