Places to holiday in Tarragona, Spain

The city of Tarragona is considered the most important Roman settlement in the whole of Spain. The Amfitheatre Roma is a magnificent monument, and the Muralla or town walls, aqueduct and city gates are well worth a visit, and there are a number of Roman villas in Tarragona, but for information and an insight into the Roman history of Tarragona, the Archaeological Museum and the Museu Necropolis have all the answers. Tarragona also boasts some magnificent beaches, and the further around the Costa Dorada you walk from your self catering Tarragona property, the more delightful little coves you will discover. Playa El Torn is a nice little beach in Tarragona, and is strictly naturist.

Barcelona is just a short train journey from Tarragona, and a self catering property in Tarragona not only provides a magnificent holiday, but allows you the flexibility to explore Barcelona’s famous sight, sounds and tastes, and the beautiful Catalonia region.

                                                                                                      Had a fantastic hot sunny week in early April. Ideal for a couple and also for travelling with a dog, very few rentals offer a safe enclosed garden area for either children or dogs, so this was very welcome. Owner and villa manager both very helpful, friendly & quick to respond. Nice area, quiet in April, only 5 mins drive to lovely deserted sandy beaches, good restaurants and cafes. Great to have BBC & main channels for the Grand Prix and masters golf, after 2 weeks in hotels & gites with only BBC news 24! Highly recommend this villa - we're planning to come back for a longer stay next time.

The accommodation is excellent, fitted to a very high standard and extremely comfortable. The top quality dishwasher, quiet as well as efficient, is an example of how everything is done to a high standard. The washroom with washer and dryer was great, everything I needed was here. Georgina & Rene were extremely helpful; if there is a problem they deal with it really quickly. It is a nice quiet rustic location, so for me was perfect. I came in winter, but I imagine in the warmer months it will be a great place to kick back and barbecue as a family. The countryside here is also rather nice. You are not very far from the sea either. If I lived in Barcelona and wanted a week of peace and relaxation, I think here is perfect.
