Overview

About the property

Eco Home accommodates 2 people overlooking the Ebro Delta Natural Park

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.

*ACCOMMODATION.

Eco Home "Escape" sits on a hill top from where the view is lost on hectares of olive trees, the Natural Park of Delta de l'Ebre and the sea beyond. A spectacular view!

Eco Home "Escape" is attached to the main house of the farm, where we live, but with independent entrance and terrace. It is designed for 2 people who are thrilled with the great outdoors.

You will enjoy a loft of 35m² with kitchen, bathroom, living room, bedroom and terrace of 40m2.

Fully equipped with linens, towels, tv, dvd, stereo, wifi, underfloor heating, kitchen with everything you need, including coffee, tea, sugar, salt, rice, pasta and our biological oil, and above all, spectacular views.

No pets allowed.

Make tourism something different!

*GUEST ACCESS.

Eco home "Escape" is attached to the main house of the farm , where we live, but has an independent entrance and terrace.

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.

Ecofinca Lo Favaret’s home is located in Tortosa, Catalonia, Spain.

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: Not allowed.

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 apartment in 2002

Escape to the country among the olive and almond trees.

  • 5 of 5

A lovely Ecofinca with wonderful views of over the Ebro Delta. Well equipped and nicely furnished.

We had a very nice stay and enjoyed the whole experience of living in this great location.

John was very helpful explaining about the Delta and the surrounding area.

We hired bikes and cycled around the Delta nature reserve and saw lots of interesting birds.

We also hired bikes at the old railway station at Xerta (north of Tortosa) and cycled along the Via Verde. This is an amazing bike route running along the disused railway through superb scenery.

Well-designed studio with a big view

  • 5 of 5

Small studio apartment with a large verandah overlooking the Ebro delta

Quiet location in olive groves, about 20 mins drive from the N340 along narrow rural lanes.

Well-designed modern interior, big windows, comfortably warm during our January stay

Very comfortable bed, plenty of hot water in shower

Basic pantry supplies provided, plus olive oil from Lo Faveret olive trees (muchas gracias)

Good written directions to find property provided by Paco, as satnav is unreliable in this location.

Apartment adjoins owner’s home, but their courtesy and thoughtfulness ensures a warm welcome without unnecessary intrusion.

Driveway is rough but perfectlybmanageable with conventional car if taken slowly.

Gooi je GPS weg (die werkt hier niet), vergeet je drukke leven en laat je omarmen door de gastvrijheid van John en Paco, twee alleraardigste mensen, die van deze plek een klein paradijs hebben gemaakt.

Super-Lage mit fantastischer Aussicht

  • 5 of 5

Nach unseren Tagesausflügen konnten wir es immer kaum erwarten, die Ruhe und die fantastische Aussicht der Ecofinca zu genießen. Die Abende auf der traumhaften Terrasse waren einmalig erholsam. Je nach Wetterlage hat sich die Aussicht verändert, so dass es immer was Neues zu entdecken gab. Bei einem Glas Wein haben wir die Ausflüge der nächsten Tage geplant und konnten dabei unabhängig von der Uhrzeit jederzeit unsere absolut sympathischen und hilfsbereiten Vermieter Paco und John um Rat fragen. Durch die wertvollen Tipps von Paco haben wir viele Insiderinfos erhalten.

Die Räume waren sehr liebevoll eingerichtet und wir haben uns rundherum wohl gefühlt.

Vermissen werden wir auch Kinky, den zutraulichen Kater der Vermieter.

Wir werden auf jeden Fall irgendwann wiederkommen.

Vielen Dank an Paco und John, dass sie ihr Paradies mit uns geteilt haben.

You have left an important mark on our hearts and also on our cats, especially on Kinky! He misses you so much!!! We hope to be able to have you back in the future physically, because you have already stayed in our hearts forever.
