About The Owner

We are Ruth and Graham Breeze and we live near York in North Yorkshire in England. Graham loves his photography and L'Ampolla and the surrounding area provides such a wide variety of subjects from the birds that visit the Delta throughout the year, the local farmers planting and later in the year picking the rice, the breathtaking scenery of the Mountains (such as Mont Caro), the beauty of the shoreline, rock pools and beaches and the history of Tarragona, Miravet, Morella, Peniscola ..................... the list is endless.

On the otherhand Ruth loves nothing better than to relax around the pool (soaking up the sunshine with a good book or music) and to find new places to visit whilst at the same time testing out the wide variety of restaurants, tapas bars and not forgetting doing some shopping!!!

Casa Elise (named after our daughter Elise) is a ‘Casa de Campo’ or traditional farmer’s house which has stood in Los Olivos for many decades. It was refurbished in 2005 and the kitchen and bathroom were modernised in 2011.

We try to spend as much time as we can at Casa Elise but have found that there are many months when the house is empty so it seems a natural thing to offer others the opportunity to experience for themselves the peaceful and tranquil nature of ‘Finca Los Olivos’ and its little house so we are happy to make Casa Elise available to guests.

Many people have stayed in our home in the sun, and all of them have enjoyed the experience, leaving very positive comments in the guestbook we leave in the living room.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Why The Owner chose L'Ampolla

During our first holiday in L’Ampolla in 2007, we were struck by the tranquillity of the area and found ourselves drawn to the charm of the town and the friendliness of its people. We returned for a second time in 2009 and came across ‘Finca Los Olivos’. Before we knew it we had become the owners of our own home in the sun!

Casa Elise is only a short distance from so many activities, from dining in excellent restaurants and local cafes in the local town of L’Ampolla, to hiking in the mountains or walking and cycling on the flat Ebro Delta where local farmers grow rice which is sold worldwide.

The Delta offers excellent bird watching with hundreds of species passing through or resident all year. Fishing in the river Ebro is a very popular activity, and there are so many local villages and towns each with their own character.

Of particular interest is Miravet with its beautiful castle overlooking the river, reached by an old chain ferry that must be experienced.

Whether you chose to visit any of the places we have named, find new places for yourself, lie on the golden local beaches or just stay by the Casa, we are sure you will have a fantastic experience and we hope you will love the place as much as we do.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are home in rainy England after an absolutely fantastic sun kissed relaxing blissful fortnight at your beautiful Casa Elise!

We just wanted to thank you for everything regarding our break away, from the communication over the phone and email regarding booking Casa Elise, all the helpful correspondence from yourself and wonderful Sharon before we went and the welcome food&drinky bits and bobs upon our really have thought of everything at the Casa.

We felt incredibly safe and very 'at home' while we were there. Sharon&Mike were absolutely amazing too, any questions or queries we had they could answer or would explore for us...we felt very lucky to have them so close.

We all loved it. The boys especially loved the pool and x practised his swimming daily, getting better and better and also learned to dive and snorkel-the latter of which he tried out at Peniscola (nord) beach, which we agreed with you is beautiful! We loved the strange 'sesame seeds' like sandy shale on the beach and all enjoyed combing it for shells which we collected loads of!

It was hot but we all enjoy the warmth, the boys were well protected too... we had lots of pool days, chilling at the casa, mixed with days out exploring other beaches and places like Miravet... the men even drove to Barcelona one evening to watch a match and we all drove to Valencia one day to explore that city! Overall a marvelous time from start to finish, thank you for a wonderful stay at Casa Elise.

Little heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation at Casa Elise: very nice and clean house, huge pool and beautiful and quiet surrounding. We will definitely come back!

We loved to play Marco Polo in the pool with our two kids (13 and 17), had a blast playing Pingpong, barbequed superb under the evening sun and had just a relaxed family time. Whenever we needed advise, there was Mike nearby. L'Ampolla is a nice little town, not crowded in June, has some great Restaurants, we went to La Barraca and Marisqueria Nova Devimar.... if you like seafood, you can't go wrong there! Nearby is the Nationalpark Deltebre. Just beautiful.

A great relaxing holiday!

  • 5 of 5

What more could anyone want?A quiet well appointed, well maintained house set in olive groves with a lovely pool to cool down in. We have just spent 3 weeks at Casa Elise. Although it is in a rural setting you are soon onto main roads to explore the area. We had a few days out to Miravet, (the river was flooded so we couldn't use the old ferry) Mount Caro, (saw some deer), L'Ametlla, but our favourite days out were spent on the Delta. Amazing long sandy beaches that stretched for miles and were always empty, lots of flamingoes and wild life.

The house has everything you need and is immaculately clean. My favourite part of the house was the lovely terrace off the bedroom that gets the sun all day. The arrangement with Heidi to guide us to the house worked well and Heidi was a great help when my husband stupidly locked the car with the keys inside!! Just one small suggestion, a tool kit would have been useful!

A fantastic holiday, thank you to owners for letting us share their "paradise" in true Spain away from all the tourists!

Owner's Response: Thankyou for your review. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Casa Elise. It sounds like you had a great time exploring the local area and some of our local towns and villages. Sorry to hear that the Miravet ferry was not running as it is such a pleasure to experience that short journey. I will pass your kind comments to Heidi and will also look to providing a small tool kit in the house for those unexpected events! We hope you may decide to return to Casa Elise one day to experience even more of the sights and experiences to be enjoyed nearby or just to relax by the pool or top up your tan on the terrace.

Un endroit paisible pour des vacances reposantes

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé 2 semaines à Casa Elise, au calme au milieu des oliviers. La piscine permet de se rafraîchir, les enfants s'y sont vraiment bien amusés! sa profondeur permet à tous de profiter au maximum, il est tout de difficile d'y faire des longueurs de nage!

Sharon et Mike nous ont fait un bel accueil ! La maison est bien équipée et très propre. Nous recommandons cette location sans hésitation ! Merci à Ruth !

perfect family stay

  • 5 of 5

The place is perfect for a family with kids: the pool, which is not too deep, and the big surroundings. We loved the olive tress round the house. The place is quiet although it is close to the coast and the touristic sites.

The house and the surroundings are nice and were clean.

The owners were there for our questions in our preparations and during our stay.

They helped us to find everything we needed.

We felt very comfortable.

We are situated 5 minutes by car from L'Ampolla, a traditional Catalan fishing town. (You can walk there through the olive groves in 30 minutes). It has a beautiful Marina and has plenty of excellent restaurants where you can sample the local cuisine. There are many festivals and traditions throughout the year including Oyster day which takes place in May, where you can taste the daily catch. L'Ampolla has many beautiful beaches most of them are blue flag. The Ebro Delta is famous for its rice production, and its fishing. This area is a major migration point for many species of birds and local hides and lagoons offer excellent bird watching and photography opportunities.

There are many places of interest nearby, for example Miravet with its historic castle and fabulous breathtaking views.

Many of the local towns produce their own wine, which you can sample.

Porta Ventura, one of the largest theme parks in Europe with its own water park, is on your doorstep. Salou, also nearby has fabulous blue flag beaches, water sports,discos and bars.

Porta Ventura and Salou are a short train journey away while Barcelona and Valencia can be reached within 2 hours on a regular cheap train service.
