Make a holiday cottage in Segarra your home away from home

For a rural escape where traditional agriculture mingles with medieval history, have a look at our choice of holiday cottages in Segarra. Exceptionally romantic, holiday homes in Segarra will provide you with your own slice of history for a few days – rentals here are converted farmhouses and stately villas, carefully restored and enhanced with private pools and modern domestic gadgetry. You can spend your time unwinding in the large garden of your Segarra cottage, or set off on one of the many excursions available, with charming towns, medieval castles, ancient mines and much more to see close by.

Things to do

-Outdoor recreation. The terrain in La Segarra is mostly flat, with occasional rocky hills. This gentle landscape is well suited to horseback riding, and there are equestrian centres in L’Ametlla and Pavia. Golfers can hone their short game at the pitch and putt in Massoteres. And of course, the area offers plenty for walkers, with paths that wend their way through cereal fields, oak cork forests and vineyards.

-Medieval history. In the 1000s the banks of the River Sio was reconquered from the Moors, and to ensure a Christian presence in the area, a series of castles and churches were constructed. Several can be seen today, and the most impressive include Florejacs, Vicfred and Les Pallargues. An interesting town to see is Montfalco, also from the 1000s – with an old centre still enclosed by walls and remarkably well preserved.

-Family attractions. Just beyond the eastern boundary of La Segarra is the town of Cardona, which was a centre for salt mining from Roman times up until the 1900s. The mines are now part of a cultural park, and you can visit the Nieves mine, which descends 86 metres into the side of a hill, for a guided tour.

-Food and drink. The cuisine of this region is based on its own natural produce – with many lowland areas covered with wheat fields, La Segarra is known especially for its bread and cakes. Other local products include honey, mushrooms, olive oil and a variety of nuts and fruits. If you’d like to get in touch with La Segarra’s wine culture there are four wineries to visit in the region.

-Days out. All kinds of exciting places can be visited within a simple drive of La Segarra. To the north are the Pyrenees and their many protected natural parks. In winter the ski resort of Port del Comte is around an hour to the north. The golden sandy beaches of the Costa Dorada are also an hour away, as is the famous city of Barcelona, packed with culture and great shops.

Weather in Segarra

Segarra holiday accommodation is in an area of Catalonia where the Mediterranean climate meets a continental zone. Here winter temperatures are a little cooler than on the coast, with highs that fall short of 10 degrees by day and can slip below zero at night. By April things have warmed up considerably, with daily temperatures that hit 20 degrees. Summers are hot here with highs of 30 degrees in July and August. Rainfall is relatively limited throughout the year, but the period between November and January is noticeably damper than other seasons.

Travel to Segarra

There are two options if you’re flying to a holiday home in Segarra.

Also about an hour away is Barcelona El Prat (BCN), which is one of Spain’s busiest airports and is served by a wealth of routes from the UK with airlines of all descriptions.

A warm welcome from the owners and a very nice small village. A big surprise was the small taverna 100 meters from the house where we had one of the best meals I can remember.

We felt very at home, cottage and pool was extremely clean and fully equipped with everything we required. Host was welcoming and on hand should we require anything. We had a very relaxing, peaceful holiday. Could not fault our stay. Thank you
