Overview

About the property

Ecological cottage accommodates up to 4 people near the Ebro Delta

Ecofinca Lo Favaret covers an area of 1.3 Hectares, to the south of the Serra del Boix, enjoying a warm and dry micro-climate, ideal for the cultivation of the centenarian olive trees. We converted the finca to an ecological cultivation method.

We are located in a very quiet and isolated area in the mountains that surrounds the Ebro adelta, about 15km (20 minutes by car) from L'Ampolla (the nearest village with food shops and restaurants), the beach and the Ebro Delta, famous for birdwatching.

*THE SPACE.

Eco Home "La Faeneta" is an old labourer’s house for 2, 3 or 4 people, traditionally used for the olive harvest. With inner area of 45m2 and a porch and garden of 30m2, hosts 2, 3 or 4 people.

At Eco Home "La Faeneta" discover the sensation of being far from civilization, hidden away in the cozy Lo Favaret valley.

Lovingly restored following the traditional architecture, consisting of sitting room with fireplace, bathroom, kitchen, one bedroom for two people, and another double bed on the mezzanine level.

Totally equipped with linen, towels, tv, dvd, music, wifi, kitchen with all you may need including coffee, tea, sugar, salt, rice, pasta and our organic olive oil. We also provide wood for the fireplace.

At Ecohome La Faeneta pets are welcome. There is an extra charge of 10€/night and pet to be paid on arrival.

Enjoy breakfast on the covered terrace with mother nature. Surrounded by olive trees, herbs and flowers, it’s a perfect start to your holiday!

*GUEST ACCESS.

Eco home "La Faeneta" is an isolated building situated in the lower part of Ecofinca Lo Favaret, about 200 meters from the main house where we live. All the space is for you and not shared with anybody else, we live in another building of the farm.

Our desire is you enjoying to the maximum of your stay and, although you will have total privacy, we will be reachable to help you in what you’d need, be it more information about the house, to solve any problem you may have, activities to carry out in the surroundings, places to visit, etc.

*THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

We are located in an ecological olive farm in the Serra del Boix, 18km (30 minutes drive) from Tortosa, and 15km (20 minutes drive) from L'Ampolla, the nearest town with food shops and restaurants.

If you are of those who prefer hiking or adventure sports in the mountains, we are just 1 hour from the summits of over 1,000 meters of the Natural Park of Els Ports Tortosa-Besseit. And do not miss the Serra del Cardo, little known, full of history and breathtaking mountain scenery, also 1 hour away.

If you prefer the sea and beach, the Natural Park of the Ebro Delta is only 20 minutes drive, waiting for you with rice fields rising behind the sand dunes and unspoilt beaches. Ebro Delta is perfect for cycling, birdwatching with incredible variety of bird-life, including the famous pink flamingos (as its Natural Park houses one of the largest bird reserves in Europe), stroll in the kayak at the Ebro’s mouth, or enjoy the extraordinary local cuisine.

We can not forget to mention Via Verde if you want to enjoy a soft slope’s bike ride.

*GETTING AROUND.

The nearest village is Camarles, located about 10km (20 minutes drive), so it becomes needed using a car to get to the house. And in a radius of 12 km, we have access to the train stations of L'Ampolla and L'Aldea, which connect with Barcelona and Valencia (both less than 2 hours) and the exit to the AP7 motorway.

It is important to know that the access to Ecofinca Lo Favaret is done through 10km of paved rural roads, except the last 400m, which is a forest dirt track suitable only for normal cars which are not low or very long. You do not need a 4x4.

*HOUSE RULES.

-ELECTRICITY: All the electrical energy for the finca is generated by the sun and transformed by photovoltic solar panels.

All the electrical appliances which we use are low consumption including some of which have been modified to further reduce their consumption.

We have sufficient capacity to live comfortably, it is possible to connect apparatus like chargers, lap top computers, shavers, but we cannot permit the use of high consumption apparatus like hair-dryers, irons, coffee machines, heaters, etc...

-WATER: At Ecofinca Lo Favaret we collect the rainwater and store it in a subterranean cistern.

Due to the shortage of rain in the area, in the ecohouses we have implemented a system of usage and recycling which helps us take advantage of the water to the maximum. In this way we can arrive at the consumption of 50 litres of water a day, as recommended by WHO.

For this we encourage you to help as look after one of the most fundamental resources of our planet: the water.

-PETS: We accept pets up to medium size and well educated. There is an extra charge of 10€/night and pet to be paid on arrival.For our customers with pets we will place covers on the sofas to avoid damages to them. Guests will be responsible for the behavior of their pets and for any damages they may cause.

About Paco Santos

Ecofinca Lo Favaret is a project born from a passionate desire for mother nature and the ecology, thought of a few years ago when we lived in the city, John in Edinburgh and Paco in Barcelona, with a need to change the rhythm, but maintaining positive values and bring them together with a rural culture, creating a place where tranquility and energy vibrate at the same pace.

Paco Santos purchased this house in 2002

Even helemaal niets ........

  • 4 of 5

Wij hebben een heerlijke week gehad en genoten van deze mooie rustige plek. Midden in de natuur tussen de olijfbomen, met alle comfort die je nodig hebt. Simpel, functioneel en smaakvol ingerichte finca met heerlijke buiten zit mogelijkheden, uitzicht en vooral ook veel mooi vogels.

Mocht je deze stilte willen ontvluchten dan ben je met 20 minuten aan de kust of in de bergen.

Experiencia fantástica

  • 5 of 5

Hola chicos:

Con la resaca de las vacaciones todavía a cuestas sólo podemos daros las gracias por la estancia en la finca, por vuestra amabilidad, detalle y discreción en el trato, por el maravilloso lugar que habéis creado y porque cuando nos fuimos de la finca pasamos directamente del paraíso al timo total con lo cual todavía nos parece más idílica vuestra casa. Espero que sigáis disfrutando de vuestro sueño por muchos años y que nos dejéis, de vez en cuando, compartir un trocito de él. Recomendable totalmente no solo por la finca, que ya es mucho, sino por las sorpresas que regala la zona, que son muchas y espectaculares... y hasta ahí puedo leer.

Un placer y espero que hasta pronto!

Relax total

  • 5 of 5

Hemos estado mi marido, nuestra hija de 2 años y medio y nuestros tres perritos , 2 noches en la Faeneta. Sólo podemos pensar en cuándo volver!!!.

La casa está muy muy limpia, y muy bien equipada. El entorno es magnífico, silencio total ( tan sólo se oyen los pájaros y el viento ), y es una gozada poder disfrutar de las noches en el porche.

Paco es un maravilloso anfitrión que está pendiente de todos los detalles. Muy agradable e informativo sobre las características de la ecofinca.

Tenéis que probar su aceite de producción propia, así como las olivas y las almendras.

Para repetir...y espero que pronto!!!. Gracias Paco

Car: necessary

Ecofinca Lo Favaret is located on a terraced hill with fantastic dry stone walls, in the foothills of the Natural Park of the Serra Boix-Cardo, in Baix Ebre, to the south of the province of Tarragona and less than two hours drive from Barcelona to the north and Valencia to the south.

To reach the Ecofinca Lo Favaret a car is necessary, since the nearest train stations (L'Ampolla or L'Aldea) are 12km away and there is no public transportation from there.

It is important to know that the access to Ecofinca Lo Favaret is by paved rural roads, except the last 400m, which is a forest dirt road, suitable only for normal cars, which are not low or very long. You do not need a 4x4.

We enjoy a privileged view of the Natural Park of the Ebro Delta, which is accessible in 15 minutes by car and be surrounded by rice fields, many species of bird-life and nudist beaches, but avoiding the Delta`s mosquitoes.

Halfway between the historic city of Tortosa and the seafaring traditional fishing village of L'Ampolla, we have direct access to both scenarios; the mountains and the sea, not forgetting the fluvial ecosystem of the river Ebro and its marvelous delta.
