About Lucy Ruston

I have lived in Catalonia for 15 years and bought Villa Laila 12 years ago. I loved it from the first time I saw it, it has a very special homely feel. The Villa has given me some very happy times. Since getting married I have moved just half an hour away from the Villa to the beautiful rural Village of Deltebre, but we still use spend as much time as we can at Villa Laila!

Lucy Ruston purchased this villa in 2005

Why Lucy Ruston chose Les Tres Cales

Villa Laila has something special. It has a real familiar feel to it and everyone that has stayed in the Villa over the 9 years that I have been renting it have said the same. It has something special.

The garden is very private, it is in a very quiet road with great neighbours and is in a great location, within walking distance to a family restaurant, small supermarket and the beach.

What makes this villa unique

I have to say that the garden is my favourite. Not overlooked by passers by or neighbours you can really disconnect from your day to day life. Every time we go for a weekend we feel like we are in our own little world, and our daughter loves playing in the garden and of course the pool.The Villa is bright, full of light and very homely.

Fabulous, spacious, well equipped villa.

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous, spacious, well equipped villa with its own private pool.

The property comes with three bedrooms (two with double beds and a third with two single beds) which means it is perfect for a family of four (where the kids like their own space), although it would also take six comfortably. Of note are the two bathrooms which are again are perfect for teenagers!!

The Villa is well equipped with all mod cons to keep the children happy i.e. a private pool, free wifi, stone BBQ and a well stocked book case for those who like to laze by the pool. Importantly for us, there is air-conditioning serving the whole villa which helped with sleeping at night.

For those with smaller children the property is surrounded by a perimeter wall / fence both well disguised by a hedge. The pedestrian and vehicle gates are both lockable with a key which means once in the kids are in. The pool has also been fenced off (shown in some pictures) which makes it even better for small children.

The kitchen has a microwave, fridge, freezer, oven, dishwasher and washing machine which means you can cook as at home if you like or eat out in the local villages if you don't.

In terms of location, Les Tres Cales, has a supermarket (Suma), a Pharmacy, and an Ironmongers. There are more shops and restaurants located at L'Ametlla De Mar, about 10 mins away, including a larger Mercadona Supermarket (Open on Sundays).

There are also numerous beaches should you feel the need to leave the villa. Further afield is Tarragona, which we visited practically every other day, which has a balance of shopping therapy, good beaches and some fantastic roman sites.

In terms of recommendations, other than the villa I would recommend flying into Reus rather than Barelona El Prat because you will save around an hour in transfer time.

Finally Lucy and her Partner were fantastic, patient when traffic / car hire delayed us and very accommodating. Would definitely recommend.

Wonderful villa with even better owner

  • 5 of 5

Immaculate villa, lovely pool in a lovely area, a short drive to a stunning beach.

We could not have asked for nicer hosts. Very obliging with nothing a problem.

Our kids loved their stay and the area.

Approx 30 mins drive to the hustle and bustle of Salou, PortAventura parks, etc.

Would highly recommend.

Car is a must for the region.

Spent days visiting one of the superb beaches 5 minutes away snorkelling at L'Ametlla beach was a particular favourite and then swimming in the pool , Lots of amazing restaurants around and the kitchen was very well equipped for the days when we stayed in .It really was a fantastic holiday thank you once again ! Sara , Rich and all the crew x

Beautiful and peaceful oasis in a really great area for exploring and soaking up the Spanish sun!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Villa Laila as a family of 6 - aged from 13 to 50! The property was all that was expected from the description and photos online - in fact more because it was bigger than in the pictures! Only 2 things differed from the description and that was the introduction of a fence on the patio to separate off the pool area which is a really good idea, especially for those staying here with little ones. The other was the DVD player which was missing when we arrived, but we mentioned this to Lucy during the week and she immediately bought a replacement new machine and arranged for it to be installed. More on Lucy's very attentive customer service later. The property was clean and well maintained inside and out. The kitchen was well equipped. Most of the time we ate out but when we did need to prepare meals in, it was more than adequate. There was plenty of options and space for enjoying meals together both indoors and outdoors. The air conditioning was quite efficient but because it was in the hallway, at night we tended not to use but keep the bedroom windows open with fly screens across (essential to keep out mosquitoes!). Pool was lovely, well maintained and just the right size for us all to enjoy. Our youngest spent most of her time in it when we weren't out and about! In advance of the holiday we had regular contact from Lucy the owner, who answered a number of queries. From the moment we arrived at the airport she was in touch with us and we felt very welcomed when we finally arrived at the property at about 1.30am! (due to a 2.5hr flight delay). Nothing seemed to be too much trouble for her (and no question too stupid!): She even printed off our boarding passes for the return flight, which I had forgotten to do at home! With regards to the area - it has a beautiful coastline of coves and a range of different types of beach to choose from. L'Ametlla de Mar is a picturesque fishing village / holiday resort - not at all commercialized, with most of the holidaymakers being Spanish or Catalan. The nearby N340 and AP7 roads provide fast access to many other places - we went to Tarragona and Deltebre (the Ebre Delta) for trips out and also had one day out in Barcelona - although as it is 1.5 hr drive (involving a number of tolls) it was not that convenient. All in all - a great base for a traditional sun, sea and sand holiday, with some interesting locations to visit too.

Beautiful villa, very welcoming and homely

  • 4 of 5

We are a family of 4 and we are just back from a weeks holiday in this beautiful villa. The villa was exactly as was described and the photos do not do the pool justice. Lucy was very welcoming and we really appreciated the welcome goodies she had left for us as we were arriving late on Saturday evening and with most shops closed on Sunday it was great not to be worrying about provisions first thing on Sunday morning. The villa was very clean and very well equipped, one of the best we have stayed in. The children (14 and 12) were hard to drag away from the pool, so we had a very relaxing holiday and didn't venture too far from the villa. The villa is in a good location in the development, the shop is a very short walk away as was the restaurant Bambalinas. We ate in this restaurant a few nights during our stay, just remember to make a reservation on their music nights. The beaches, a short distance in the car, are beautiful and well worth a visit. The area is quiet so if you want a relaxing holiday I would recommend this villa. The only down side to our holidays were the mosquitoes , they had a particular liking to my blood, but I know that was beyond the owner's control. Thanks Lucy for the use of your beautiful villa.

Lovely villa and pool - great for families

  • 4 of 5

Villa was great, with good facilities in quiet residential area. Fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, washing machine, air con. 5 minute drive to the beach, 10 minute drive to a large supermarket and L'Ametlla de Mar, lovely little town on a lovely beach. Small supermarket, bakery, restaurant and children's park in walking distance. Beautiful pool and small fence with gate, nice touch to stop children accessing the pool. Good size garden with dining area and bbq. Good security and parking. Would highly recommend.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. We are really pleased you enjoyed your time at Villa Laila. The fence is new this year just before the season started and all guests so far have commented that it is a good idea so we are pleased that we chose to install it and that it gave you some peace of mind! You are all welcome back any time. Thank you

Villa Laila is located on the Urbanisation of Las Tres Calas, which is Urbanisation of private villas, very family orientated, typically Spanish and very peaceful. Nestled between the sea and the mountains, it has been a favourite for families for many years. Just 800 meters from the Villa there is a great family restaurant "Bambalina! with a fantastic brand new bar and restaurant providing excellent food and cocktails. Infront of the restaurant there is an excellent playground and football pitch for children so you can keep an eye on the children from the terrace.

Also, within a 2 minute walk from the villa there is a small supermarket, a bakery and a hardware store. There are also 3 bar/restaurants which provide local cuisine at very reasonable prices.

There are several beaches and private coves in Las Tres Calas which are all 5 minutes in the car from the villa. The closest beach is Sant Jordi beach which is a sandy beach awarded the European blue flag award for the cleanliness of the beach and the sea. There is a small snack bar and lifeguard available during the day. There are several other sandy beaches which are very private along the rocky coastline and just waiting to be discovered.

Just 5 minutes in the car takes you to the beautiful coastal village of L'Ametlla Mar. There are 16km of fabulous coastlines dotted with sandy and pebbled beaches and coves, many of which have been awarded the European blue flag award. The L'Ametlla coastline is also part of the GR Route which is a coastal walk marked out for you to follow that stretches right along the Catalonian coastline.

In L'Ametlla you will find the beautiful fishing Port where you can watch the boats come and go, you can also view the fishing auction in the afternoons and visit the fishing museum. Along the port there are many bars and restaurants perfect for relaxing and breathing in the sea air. By taking a walk around the winding streets of L'Ametlla you will come across several restaurants all providing local cuisine and you can sample all types of seafood, rice dishes and Sangrias! Two of the several beaches and coves of L'Ametlla can be found very close to the centre of the village and have amenities and lifeguards available. L'Ametlla de Mar is an unspoilt traditional Catalan village where you can sample the local traditions and cuisine. L'Ametlla will be your port of call for banks, chemists and doctors should you need them during your stay. There is also a very large supermarket at the entrance for your weekly shop.

15 minutes by car from the villa is the coastal village of L'Ampolla. This is also a fishing village with an impressive port and a newly refurbished deck so you can walk along the seafront and take in the views. There are several restaurants with fantastic sea views in L'Ampolla.

Deltebre is 25 minutes by car from the Villa and is an amazing natural reserve which is a must for nature lovers and those who enjoy sports and activities. Deltebre is located on the mouth of the River Ebro which is surrounded by a nature reserve, rice fields and the largest wetlands in Europe. Visited by bird watchers all year round the nature reserve is home to many species of bird and animals. There are boat trips out to the river mouth and you can take boats out river or sea fishing. There are amazing beaches in Deltebre and the 3 main beaches have just been awarded the 'Virgin Beach' awards by Ecologists in Action for their quality and natural merits. There are also many places for you to partake in water sports and cycling and quad tours.

The closest city is Reus which is a fantastic shopping city. The architecture is also very impressive and Reus is a very charming city with many great restaurants.

35 minutes by car will take you to the beautiful city of Tarragona. Famous for is Roman Amphitheater guided tours are available all summer in many languages. Tarragona also has a long coastline and a beautiful beach. It is also a great shopping city with a large shopping centre and an industrial zone which has among other things a Carrefour Hypermarket, Cinema, Restaurants, Sports shops, Toy shops and bargain clothing stores.

Barcelona is a 1h30m train ride from L'Ametlla de Mar, and the trains takes you directly into the centre of the city. Barcelona has so many things to see and do. It is most famous for the amazing buildings and architecture of Gaudi which can be seen all around the city. There are also the famous Gaudi creations of Park Guell (a breathtaking park desgined by Antoni Gaudi overlooking the city) and the Sagrada Familia (the cathedral which was started by Gaudi and is currently being finished). Barcelona is of course a haven for shopaholics, There are also many places for you to sample traditional tapas and some very high end restaurants.
