Make a holiday cottage in Sant Jaume dels Domenys your home away from home

On HomeAway, Sant Jaume dels Domenys holiday homes are found in pastoral scenery, with much of the landscape covered in the large vineyards of the Penedès wine region. Expansive gardens will afford the privacy and space you need to unwind, and with pools provided by many cottages in Sant Jaume dels Domenys, there’s plenty of room for kids and teenagers to stretch their legs. Interiors are welcoming and homelike, with lots of authentic flourishes like wooden beams and large stone fireplaces. You could while away a soft summer evening at a Sant Jaume dels Domenys holiday cottage over an outdoor barbecue and a glass of local wine.

Things to do

-Nature. Just to the west is the Foix reservoir, a picturesque expanse of water enclosed by forest, tall hills, vineyards and the magnificent Castellet castle, which dates to the 900s, but has been the site of a fort for more than 2,500 years. The park is crossed by scenic trails, including one that links the castle here with the stunning Romanesque fortified convent a few kilometres away in Penyafort.

-Beaches. Costa Dorada beaches are a simple drive to the south. At places like Calafell, Sant Salvador and Comaruga you can revel in golden sandy beaches, backed by promenades boasting restaurants serving fresh seafood. The resort of Cunit is a real standout here, with two kilometres of sheltered sandy beaches, awarded the prestigious Blue Flag for their amenities and services.

-Food and drink. In rural Catalonia the best places to buy local wine, as well as a selection of other items produced in the area are “cooperativa” shops – it’s a cost-effective way for local farmers to get their produce on the market. At the Sant Jaume dels Domenys cooperativa you’ll find a range of wines, as well as olive oil, olives, together with all kinds of dried fruit and nuts.

-Sights and attractions. One of Spain’s best theme parks, PortAventura, is just 40 minutes from Sant Jaume dels Domenys – it’s updated every year with state-of-the-art rollercoasters, and there are shows and amusements to entertain every member of the family. For contrast you could also make the short trip to the Santes Creus monastery, a breathtaking Cistercian monastery complex dating to the 1100s, with gothic and Romanesque features.

-Tarragona. This city is on the coast, and is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its Roman heritage. For a very brief period it was even the centre of the Roman Empire, and today you’ll discover the amphitheatre, forum, parts of the circus, defensive walls, ceremonial arch and a large portion of an aqueduct just outside the city.

Weather in Sant Jaume dels Domenys

In the Tarragona province winters are mild, while summers are long, dry and hot. April is when the weather becomes noticeably warmer, and temperatures climb steadily to highs of 30 degrees in July. There’s hot weather, even in September before things start to cool down, becoming mild and occasionally rainy by November. If you stay at a holiday home in Sant Jaume dels Domenys in winter it’s best to pack something warm – most days are very mild but if the wind blows off the mountains it can be surprisingly chilly.

Travel to Sant Jaume dels Domenys

The airport to reach Sant Jaume dels Domenys holiday accommodation is Reus (REU). There are lots of routes between this destination and cities throughout Britain, although most of these airlines only serve Reus in the warmer months. Reus Airport is about 40 kilometres from Sant Jaume dels Domenys, and by car it’s a simple journey because you can follow a long portion of the AP-7 autopista. Given Sant Jaunme’s relatively secluded location, public transport is tricky, so it’s best if you’re using a car.

Apartment was great, well equipped and had a nice cosy feel - perfect for kicking back with a bottle of local wine. Rainer and Ariane were lovely hosts, they have great local knowledge and suggested some fab days out. They also know all the local bodegas and restaurants so don't forget to pick their brains - Casa Xamos is an absolute must. Rainer and Ariane, thanks again for a wonderful stay.

The apartment it stylish and comfortable and not far from the coast. Especially useful is the large utility room with washer/dryer and storage of barbeque equipment. There are magnificent views of the surrounding countryside from every aspect. The area has many Roman remains and the villa at Altafulla was especially impressive. We would also recommend the many monasteries dotted about the area. I would highly recommend this property to anyone wanting a quiet and restful holiday.

It also benefited from being slightly cooler and less humid than Barcelona, even though the City was within an hour from the Farmhouse. Great holiday, we did not want to leave and therefore very much hope to go back
