Make a holiday apartment in Terra Alta your home away from home

Holiday homes in Terra Alta are set in a region of pristine natural beauty, where the landscape is composed of rocky mountains, river gorges, vineyards and olive groves, as well as dotted with charming old towns and interesting historical sites. Terra Alta apartments are welcoming and homelike, often able to accommodate groups of six or more, and equipped with the amenities and entertainment required by modern families. Terra Alta holiday homes are ideal for anyone who enjoys mountain scenery and traditional cuisine, and has the added benefit of being a simple drive from the lovely Costa Dorada.

Things to do

-Natural scenery. One of the great things about Terra Alta is the amount of variation in the landscape. The famous Ebro River passes by this area to the north and west and is a majestic sight in its own right. As you head south the terrain becomes dramatic, with rocky mountains that have been shaped by the wind, steep gorges and deep valleys negotiated by mountain goats.

-Activities. Thirteen different cycling trails can be followed in the Terra Alta area alone, guiding you through forest, over tall hills and past attractive hilltop towns like Horta de Sant Juan. An interesting route for both walkers and cyclists is the Via Verda, which follows the course of a former railway line, passing through gorges and providing rest stops at five former stations in Terra Alta.

-Heritage and attractions. In Benifallet to the east of Terra Alta is the fascinating Cueva Meravelles, which is more than 500 metres in length and full of interesting geological features like Stalagmites and Stalactites. In the Horta area is the beautiful renaissance Hermitage of Santa Barbara, which can be reached from the town via vineyards and sits in the shadow of a craggy peak.

-Gastronomy. Away from the coast, Catalan cuisine in these upland regions is based on a wide variety of meats. There’s wild boar stew, or rabbit simmered in rice and served with allioli. You could also try a local variety of paella, cooked with vegetables grown in the region. Terra Alta olive oil is of such high quality that is protected by a designation of origin, while the wines produced locally tend to be bold, fruity reds.

-Day trips. Within a comfortable drive you’ll be able to reach a great variety of places. There’s Tarragona, full of interesting Roman history. To the southeast is Deltebre, the delta of the Ebro River, famous for its abundant birdlife and rice paddies. Costa Dorada beaches are less than 45 minutes away, as is the fantastic theme park Port Aventura, considered by many to the best in Spain.

Weather in Terra Alta

Terra Alta gets typical Mediterranean weather. If you’re coming to a holiday rental in Terra Alta for a walking holiday then the best time to arrive is spring, between February and May, when temperatures are mild and conditions are normally sunny. Things heat up quickly as summer approaches, and by June daily highs are in the mid-20s. Maximum summer temperatures can even peak in the low-30s. Winters are normally mild, although the high ground can make things cool and the wind off the Pyrenees can be bitter.

Travel to Terra Alta

Reus Airport (REU) is just under 90 kilometres from Terra Alta. This is the most convenient way to reach the area from Britain, with numerous routes serving this destination, especially in the busier summer season. From the terminal it’s just over an hour by car west along the N-420. If you’re holidaying at an apartment in Terra Alta it’s best to have use of a car as public transport options are harder to come by here.

Incredibly peaceful, stunning position overlooking the river, lovely pool which was well taken care of daily. We canooed on the river, fished (didn't catch anything but then we are amateurs), went to the beach, cooked on the barbq, amongst other activities....and star gazed lying in the pitch black by the pool...shooting stars every night and millions of stars. Amazing. David and Angeles have a fab house and I would love one day to return.

A small but lively village and very friendly. Lovely views of the river and about 40 mins from some great beaches and from wonderful mountain walks/drives through wine growing country. We loved the two trips that we did. Property is clean and comfortable with owners Jane and Andreas next door - who are charming and helpful.

So peaceful and quiet, surrounded by nature, just blending into the olive trees, but an amazing piece of design inside. Driving instructions were perfect, with useful advice on where to stop for provisions in Tortosa. The accommodation was very comfortable with everything we needed for the week of eco friendly living. With our 5 and 8 year old daughters, we walked the hillside, discovered the secret tree house, swam in the municipal pool in Tivenys and ventured further afield to local towns and beaches.
