Make a holiday apartment in Conca de Barbera your home away from home

Conca de Barbera holiday homes are a short way from the Mediterranean coast, in a mountainous landscape that features an abundance of history. Close to Conca de Barbera apartments are Cistercian Abbeys, walled medieval towns and cities packed with Roman heritage. And if you're here with kids, then there's no shortage of fun close by, with theme parks and the golden sandy beaches of the Costa Dorada to enjoy. In keeping with the historic setting, holiday homes in Conca de Barbera are charming stone buildings often set in large grounds. Apartments meanwhile tend to be in historic districts, with classic rural amenities like bakers and butchers almost on your doorstep.

Things to do

-Montblanc. This is a fascinating town, still entirely enclosed by its medieval walls. On certain days you can even walk along the ramparts to enjoy impressive views of the main church and the mountains to the west. On the narrow streets within the walls you'll encounter medieval hospitals, palaces and charming little squares surrounded by old stone buildings.

-Local history. Cutting through Conca de Barbera is the Cistercian Route, a heritage trail connecting Catalonia's remarkable 12th Century abbeys. Closest is Poblet, a UNESCO site, containing the tombs of a number of kings and queens of Aragon, and designed in a beautiful Catalan gothic design. Close-by is Santes Creus, which also contains royal tombs, as well as an exquisite Gothic cloister, with English and Spanish-style tracery.

-Tarragona. For a slice of Spain's Roman history, Tarragona is essential. Well-preserved Roman monuments here include an aqueduct, theatre, defensive ramparts and forum. This ensemble of ancient heritage has earned the city World Heritage status. The National Archaeological Museum here is the place to go to put it all into context, boasting statues, mosaics and other artefacts.

-Family attractions. Two high-profile attractions are easily reached from the Conca de Barbera area. East is Aqualeon, which combines a large safari park with the kind of slides, pools and amusements you'd expect at a top water park. Meanwhile to the south is Portaventura, arguably Spain's top theme park, full of state-of-the-art rides and expertly choreographed shows.

-Activities. Montblanc is set in a landscape of tall wooded hills, olive groves and vineyards - the scenery is well suited to mountain bikers and walkers, with detailed information about routes available from the tourism office. A delightful short walk will carry you up to the 16th Century Hermitage of Sant Joan, which sits high above Montblanc and offers exceptional views of the countryside.

Quiet, stunning scenery, historic & quaint village

5 of 5
This apartment had already been booked, but the very helpful owner, Montserrat, had a lovely alternative in Torroja at Cal Viola, apartment Groc. It’s listed separately on the HomeAway site. An apartment with mezzanine double bedroom with well equipped kitchen and furniture. Large bathroom with shower. A TV with Spanish channels only and large fridge with freezer above. The area has just stunning scenery at every turn. As cyclists it was a truly fantastic area to ride in. Quiet, well surfaced roads with challenging hills but not too severe! Montsant is awesome and draws your gaze all the time. Shame the terrace at the apartment is north facing, so morning sun only and no view of Montsant, but it still has stunning views of other hills surrounding Torroja. The local restaurant Cal Joc, offers good food and drink (lots of local wine) at reasonable prices. In February, it was only open at the weekend but open all week in the summer. A must place to go whilst in Torroja. Overall, a lovely apartment and village and one that we will surely return to in the future.
