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.

About Fran Foster
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
Why Fran Foster chose L'Ampolla
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.
What makes this cottage unique
The cottages are unique, with thick walls which keep 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!!
Guestbook comments from the owner
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.
