    Priorat cottages are ideal for those who want a holiday with variety.

Most rentals here are restored historic farmhouses and mills, with traditional stonework and rustic furniture. Priorat holiday homes would appeal to anyone who wants to take invigorating walks in sumptuous scenery, but there's more to the area than active tourism.

    Things to do

    -Rural tourism. Priorat is an area of tall hills, and much of this upland terrain is protected as part of the Serra del Montsant, Muntanyes de Prades natural parks. An excellent walking route in Montsant will take you past tall limestone cliffs to the Monastery of Santa Maria Scala. There are lots of paths that will allow you to admire the beautiful vineyards that cover much of the landscape here - Porrera is a great starting point in this respect.

    -Local culture. Priorat boasts a number of very attractive old stone villages, nestled in valleys or perched on hilltops. Siurana is especially beautiful, standing on a cliff high above a lake. An important monument can be found just to the southwest of Priorat - Miravet Castle was built by the Moors, but became a fortified monastery in the centuries that followed. It's in a good state of preservation and has great views of the Ebro River.

    -Viticulture. Priorat has a winemaking heritage that goes back to the 1100s, and has a reputation for its strong reds. The vineyards here tend to be small, with terraced hillsides making the scenery especially picturesque. There are forty different wineries and cellars in the Priorat and Montsant area, and most are open to visitors, conducting tours around the vineyards and holding tasting sessions.

    -Family attractions. The Costa Dorada is a simple drive away, and one of the closest resorts is Salou, which is home to a lovely Blue Flag bay. Also easy to get to is the theme park, Port Aventura, which is possibly the best in Spain, with a wealth of roller coasters, amusements and stunt shows. Also part of this vast complex are golf courses and a world-class water park.

    -Tarragona. This was a city of immense importance during Roman times, and there are signs of this status across Tarragona today in the form of walls, a magnificent theatre, an aqueduct and a forum. You can find out more about the city's fascinating Roman heritage at the National Archaeological Museum, where mosaics, frescoes and busts are all on display.
