ECO ESCAPE, COUNTRY HOUSE, SLEEPS 2/4, SOLAR POWERED

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in L'Ampolla - Finca Carmela

Lounge, double bedroom(en suite), bathroom, patio, terrace, dip pool,

Cottage, semi detached, self contained. Lounge with mountain views and double sofa bed and small en suite. Large fully equiped kitchen diner .. Large shower room. Outside is a netted patio area with barbeque,a large sun terrace with sea views and a dip pool. Car parking is available. The house is powered by solar panels so no extra charge is made. It is quiet and relaxing amidst trees and hills. The village has all amenities needed.

There are many wonderful places to visit nearby, or one can just relax on the beach. We do have animals dogs,cats and chickens. Pets can be accepted by arrangement.

A lovely holiday home for two or four people( a sofa bed can be used in lounge ) .

The house is set amidst olive trees on terraced land, there are views to the montains and the sea. It is a working farm and we make our own olive oil. While the house had modern facilities it retains an olde world atmosphere with beams and thick stone walls

Tarragona is about one hours drive and has all the modern shops plus a Roman theatre and museum. Barcelona is two hours and is serviced by a good train , the Dali museum is a favorite and of course The Rambla.

Nearer are Tortosa with a mixture of medieval and Moorish architecture and a wonderful fresh produce market.

Near L'Ampolla there is Deltebre,a nature reserve for wildlife and birds. There are boat trips up the river Ebro from here also.

The house is 6 kl from the village and has lovely mountain views, the garden is well established with cacti and fruit trees.

The lovely town of Miravet with its ancient castle is 45 mins away and can be accessed by ferry over the River Ebro, an experience not to be missed. The boatman sometimes plays the bagpipes during the crossing!

One can reduce ones carbon footprint whilst relaxing and revitalising oneself , enjoy an alternative lifestyle and that back to nature feel.

We are British but have lived here for 13 years. We are semi retired and work the farm to produce olive oil. We have our own small press and all oil produced is virgin oil. We worked in retail and engineering before retiring here. We have dogs cats and chickens. Most of the animals are rescue cases and we often foster puppies for the local Arca dogs home.

Fran Foster purchased this cottage in 2001

This area is very beautiful, peaceful and serene, but only 10 minutes away from the village which has all one can need. We love the fact that we are mostly independent for power and water and try to be as Green as we can. We grow quite a bit of our own organic veg and fruit.

This suits those who want a break from town life and a hectic life style, here one can while away the hours on the roof terrace or walking around the lovely hillsides.

This is a very unique house, with thick walls which keep it cool in summer and cosy in winter. The views are amazing and one can be truly at peace with nature. The nearby beaches are clean and safe and only 10 mins away. We are powered by solar and water is held in the cisterna underneath the house which keeps it fresh and clean. It is possible to significantly reduce ones carbon footprint here!!

It is wonderful to be in such lovely countryside with no near neighbours, but when one needs company the village is only 10 mins away. Phones can be switched off for a peaceful interlude!!

Amazing property with beatiful views

Our stay was fantastic and the owners were friendly and very helpful with giving us directions for different attraction. The house is big and spacious with beautiful interior decoration. We recommend this for anyone who loves animals (they're very friendly).
Owner's Response: These guests were lovely, friendly and easy going. They understood our power on solar is limited and were more careful than we are with it !! Many evenings we had a good natter together and they were really impressed with the olive trees and the tranquillity of the house. Many days they just sun worshiped on the terrace, but were also interested in all the local sights and fiestas.
My husband and the gentleman even caught a catfish when out on a river fishing trip, both were delighted!!! All in all a very successful booking!!

While looking for property in Tortosa I stayed at this Finca. I was made very welcome and was warm and cosy despite high winds. This is a lovely area and I cant wait to live here permanently myself. Thoroughly recommend this as a home from home.

Our Family break

  • Review Submitted: 11-Jan-2013

Travelling around Spain with my 3 young children, I stopped at Finca Carmela during August 2012. The owners were very kind and often entertained my children, introducing their animals and showing the children how olive oil is made.
It was a real boon just to relax and let the children roam freely especially as we live in a large City, and the aie was so clean and fresh, but hot!!!, wonderful after city living. From the roof terrace all I could see were trees and in the distance the sea, perfect.
We were even invited to a birthday celebration given by the hosts.
One particularly hot eve we all bundled into the car at 11pm and went for ice cream LOL.
Thoroughly recommend!!

Our stay in Eco house.

  • Review Submitted: 11-Jan-2013
  • Date of Stay: Aug 2012
We were very lucky to be able to stay at Finca Carmela as some guests had to leave early. We phoned on the offchance and the owner was very helpful and agreed we could travel next day from France. The house was lovely and very quiet and private, exactly what we needed after a hard year of work! The little pool was so refreshing after sunbathing on the terrace. We hardly went anywhere as we were so happy and relaxed there. There was ample power from the solar system and we had our music via WI FI. The local shops had all we needed and the beaches were clean and safe. It is hard to remember such tranquility exists when busy working in a city. ANSOLUTE HEAVEN.

Spanish Heaven

  • Review Submitted: 26-Apr-2012

As a young family with two boys aged 4 and 6 this was a fantastic place to stay. The boys enjoyed being out and about on the land and especially loved feeding the chickens and collecting the eggs!The dip pool was very safe for the boys and they made good use if it.
L;Ampolla village is lovely and there was plenty to do as they put on shows and street activities in the summertime. The beaches are sandy and very clean.
The hosts were very helpful but not intrusive, and we had everything we could poss need. The cottage was clean and tidy. Although the power is by solar it worked very well and we were very impressed with their system. All in all a great holiday,would recommend to anyone wanting to get away from town life!!

L'ampolla is a lovely friendly village with harbourside bars and cafes, there are several supermarkets plus all the local shops for bread, fruits and veg plus two farmacies. Nearby is Amposta a larger town with a fantastic eat all you can buffet, chinese style and large open air market on Tuesdays.

The Delta is a famous wildlife reserve with many birds and is especially beautiful in summer as it is the area for growing rice.

For the young at heart there is an open air disco on the beach in L'Ampolla at weekends , however it is on the long beach so is no disturbance to the village. There are chirrengitos (beach bars ) in summer if you need a cold drink while sunbathing!

Notes:
Power is by solar panels and water from our cisterna, therefore only travel hairdryers can be used . However the sun will dry your hair very quickly! Kitchen is well equiped and has a dining area but usually it is best to eat outside on the netted terrace. Car parking is adjacent to the property, a car is essential but it is only 10 mins to the village which has a wealth of amenities. There are many good local restaurants and bars, eating out is very informal with many places on the harbourside. One can eat a lovely meal and watch all the boats in the marina. Children are welcome and tho we have animals, they are friendly and love attention. Children get very excited when allowed to fetch the eggs from the hens. This is a working farm but is very quiet and relaxing. We farm the olive trees and make olive oil.
