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 !!Read more
Lovely stay in this quiet Villa, very comfortable for 6. Usefull inside, nicely seastyle dressed. The best is in the outside: Big and large natural garden, with lots of different spaces to enjoy: The big BBQ, the "chill out" space in the roof with a brreathtaking view over the sea. And, specially the terrace over de pool, is simply the ideal place to rest and have fun. The whole family had a very special time ! Pretty family beach within 2 min walk.

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. From the charming vineyards to the rugged terrain of the Prades mountain range, it is the perfect base to explore the surrounding region and learn about its fascinating past. 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.
