Make a holiday cottage in Priorat your home away from home

Priorat cottages are ideal for those who want a holiday with variety. The landscapes in Priorat are unforgettable, with mountains, steep cliffs, vineyards, olive groves and the winding Ebro and Siurana rivers. 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. If you're an oenophile then there are a host of wineries found close to cottages in Priorat, while the Mediterranean coast and its resorts are a simple drive.

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.

Weather in Priorat

As holiday rentals in Priorat are situated away from the coast on relatively high ground, the weather here is Mediterranean with continental influences. Summers are typically long, dry and hot, lasting from May to October. The hottest and driest months are July and August, when temperatures peak in the high-20s or low-30s. Winters though are a little fresher in Priorat than in coastal areas. It's a feature of the climate that helps in the winemaking process. Temperatures in December can drop below freezing at night, reaching highs of around ten degrees by day.

Travel to Priorat

The closest international airport to the Priorat area is Reus (REU). This airport is relatively small, receiving mostly seasonal flights from the UK, via low-cost carriers and charters. You can get to your holiday home in Priorat from Reus by taking the N-420 west on the way to the town of Falset, which is about half an hour from the airport. As this is quite a remote rural region, with only small towns and villages, public transport is limited and use of a car is recommended.

A well looked after apartment. Fully equipped.near to large supermarkets with small one over the road in season. A short walk into Salou or Cambrils. Would recommend.

This is a spacious, well equipped and well located villa. the photos do not do it justice!

4 of 5
Our family had a wonderful time at this apartment. We were met at the villa and had a thorough run through of its numerous amenities. There are communal sun lounger's, swimming pool and children's play area on the roof of the building. The bedrooms are cosy and well equipped as is the kitchen. There is Netflix, children's toys and books, a secure courtyard and a balcony overlooking the street with both table and chairs and small couch area. The aircon is swift and modern. There are fantastic paintings dotted around the home- it really is a lovely apartment and the owners have gone to a lot of trouble to make it a comfortable and pleasant place to stay! Within the local area there are 2 supermarkets within a 2 minute walk from the property. And a well equipped park is across the road, with the beach just a few minutes in the other direction. Numerous good restaurants in the square (some are in the trip advisor too 10!) you really couldn't get a better location. The area itself is family oriented and the locals were always very welcoming to our group which included two toddlers despite how upmarket they might be - a change from home where you sometimes dread taking children into the more fancier restaurants! It's worth brushing up on your basic Spanish as we noticed that not many people have any English although everyone who couldn't speak English really did their best to try to understand us and help us- the people of Cambrills are very friendly and we were made to feel welcome everywhere we went and our two toddlers were always made to feel especially welcome which was so lovely. our group would definitely recommend staying in this apartment and also recommend holidaying in cambrills. 9 out of 10 from us!

Perfect location

4 of 5
Perfect location just a stones throw away from a gorgeous sandy beach. We were a party of 4 adults and 2 young children. The property is spacious with a separate living quarters upstairs and fully equipped with pretty much everything you need for a beach holiday. Good value for money. Friendly owner, we would happily return to this property.
