Excellent location for beach

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent holiday at Villa Avondale. It was just what we were looking for, a nice modern, well presented villa with a lovely private pool close to the beach. The beach is stunning, a lovely cove with golden sand and shallow waters. We were very happy to arrive to the villa and find it very clean, and with a few essential items. The whole family enjoyed our stay, we enjoyed the villa, and the area, and the service we received from We would like to come back again and spend more than a week this time to see more of the area.

Returning 2017

  • 5 of 5

Villa Avondale had everything my wife and I, and the children could imagine and much more. We made the long trip all of the way from Washington DC (USA) and it was worth every cent after the very long flight. The villa is in amazing shape and has everything you need. The management company were very helpful, and even managed to check us in early, which was fantastic since we had been travelling for over 24hours. They were very informative about the local area and the villa facilities. They were available for anything we needed and questions we had throughout our stay. The location is great and very close to the local beach only 10 minutes away by foot. And we enjoyed the port town L'Ametlla Del Mar, and also found it an easy drive to major cities like Tarragona and Barcelona. We rarely return to the same place, but this area of Spain has so much to offer, and so much we didn’t have time to see, we didn’t even get to the theme park Portaventura, so we have booked again, see you next year!

Nice Villa with some minus poits

  • 4 of 5

The villa although very nice & well equipped, could not be classed as 3 double bedrooms, the third bedroom is very small with only a drawer unit for storage, the double bed is against the wall in order that the door can be opened. On arrival at the office for check in, we had to queue outside for 30 mins under a small roof overhang, not an ideal arrangement on a very hot August afternoon. Then another wait for someone to take us to the villa to just open the door, not giving us any information regarding the property, we were there 2 days before we found the Utility Room at the back of the villa. It was not possible to use the TV as there wasn't a signal. The walk to the beach is nearer 20mins, along a road that leads through a tunnel, which is quite hazardous especially with young children, as there isn't a pavement.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write your review and award the Villa a 4 out of 5 score, we hope that you will use your returning guest discount off your 2017 holiday with us and we can achieve a 5 out of 5 score for you next time around. You mentioned that the beach you found was a 20 minute walk away from the villa, we feel that you must have taken a different route to the one we provided on the map we gave to you when you arrived at our office. Cala Forn beach is within a 10minute walk of the villa, the walkway takes you straight on to the beach, which is photographed on our advert and our website, it is a beautiful golden sandy cove absolutely suitable for children because of its gently sloping shallow waters. As stated in the booking conditions provided for guests to read through and consider before we ask the guest to pay a deposit, the check-in time is from 16h. On you arrival day you arrived at our office at 13.30 as did 4 other families on early flights, however, rather than send everyone away and to come back at 16h, we rushed around to check you all in by 14h, 2 hours earlier than the stated check-in time. A note to potential renters, the villa has 3 bedrooms, 1 twin room, a master bedroom with en-suite and a 2nd double bedroom. The 2nd double bedroom is photographed and shows that it is not against the wall, there is walking space around the bed to get in at both sides. It is possible that the previous guests had pushed the bed against the wall out of personal choice, but this is not a necessity as the room is large enough to house this large double bed and furniture with the door opening and closing as it should. The television does have limited English language channels eg. Sky news, CNN etc. Thank you again for your review, I hope that future guests will find the review and our response useful. Kind regards, Martin.

We highly recommend Villa Avondale

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend Villa Avondale. We when arrived the villa was very clean and fresh smelling. The villa is furnished well and with modern well maintained fixtures and fittings. The garden and pool were lovely and peaceful, and the beach nearby was lovely too, even in July it wasn’t overcrowded, we liked the beach bar and enjoyed snacks and drinks while the children played in the clear shallow waters. We found the service provided excellent.

Looking forward to our return in 2015

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 families with 7 people in total, we spent the most enjoyable week in this villa in the quiet surroundings and close to the gorgeous beach. The villa has every amenity you could ask for, and is very comfortable. The swimming pool was the centre of attention for the kids, and the beach nearby made it ideal for us.

The views from the roof terrace were to die for, the perfect place to chill outside with a glass of wine. There were plenty of good restaurants in L’Ametlla de Mar & one within 15 mins walking distance of the villa.

The beach is very good for kids, & pedalos with slide was a lot of fun.

Aquapolis was well worth a visit.

Finally I can't thank Family Villas enough for their service, communication, helpful advice & knowledge of the area.

We are already looking forward to our return in 2015.

Thank you !

  • 5 of 5

This was our first holiday abroad with our family I felt I wanted to talk to someone regarding our visit. The web page was very informative and the pictures looked great. I emailed to ask for some more information about the Avondale villa. This was replied to very quickly. I then spoke to Sara and she put all my worries to bed. We booked the Villa and during the weeks leading up to our holiday, I had many questions and all were answered promptly with lots of information.

We arrived at the office (after following lovely clear directions from Reus airport) where we were then shown our villa. WOW!! were the words used by us all! We were blown away by the cleanliness, location and size of the villa. With 3 children lots of space was needed and Avondale certainly gave us this. The pool was fantastic and many hours were spent enjoying this. The walk to the beach and the restaurants were 10 minutes as stated. The villa location felt very safe and the beaches nearby were beautiful. It was reassuring to know that Sara and Martin were on the end of the phone for any questions which needed answering. I can highly recommend them to book your holiday with for their professionalism and care. Our first abroad holiday went fantastic and most definately was helped through the delightfullness of the villa. I shall be using them again in the future. Many thanks, the Norman family xx

Villa Avondale is located in a quiet residential area less than a 10 minute walk from the fabulous blue flag sandy beach of Cala Forn and within a 10 minute walk of a high quality yet reasonably priced family friendly restaurant, where you will also find a small a supermarket, a bakery, and a couple of Tapas bars.

The villa offers an ideal holiday location for a relaxing holiday, yet is within easy reach of the beaches and many local attractions. The coastline in this area is among the most beautiful and unspoilt in the Mediterranean, there are 3 lovely sandy coves to chose from in Las Tres Calas itself and there are many more secluded beaches along the coastal road between Las Tres Calas and L’Ametlla de Mar.

The pretty fishing village of L’Ametlla de Mar is located just 5mins away by car, offering a good selection of shops, bars and restaurants. L’Ametlla de Mar is a popular destination for couples and families who return year after year to soak up the atmosphere of this charming town. An ideal location for a relaxing drink in the sunshine, or on a warm evening in one of the Tapas bars on the harbour, where you can watch the catch of the day being reeled in.

The villa is very easily accessible with Ryan Air operating daily flights from the UK, Ireland and Europe to Reus only 30 mins away, and Castellon 60mins drive. Barcelona airport is with a 90 minute drive of the villa served by many scheduled airlines, and low cost airlines from the UK, Ireland and Europe including; Easy Jet, Fly-Be, BMI baby etc.

Golf: The Bon Mont golf course is within a 15minute drive of Las Tres Calas. This is a championship 18 hole golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones Jnr. with panoramic views of the surrounding mountains and coastline. There are 3 other courses within 30minutes of this area, including the spectacular Port Aventura golf course offering competitive prices.

This area of the Costa Dorada is one of the most beautiful and unspoilt regions of the Mediterranean coast and has a great deal to offer, we have included a few examples below, please go to our website to view an area video and find more information on the local area.

The popular resorts of Salou and Cambrils are within 20/25minutes (by car or regular train service from L'Ametlla). Salou is also the home of the one of Portaventura one the largest adventure theme parks in Europe. The historic cities of Reus and Tarragona are all within easy reach, they are bustling vibrant places, ideal for a spot of shopping, sampling the traditional Tapas restaurants, or gazing at the architecture. Tarragona also has an impressive Roman amphitheatre. And then not forgetting the magnificent city of Barcelona, it really is a fabulous city well worth a visit. The influence of Gaudi has made Barcelona one of the most impressive cities in the world.

For a more relaxing day out, the Ebro Delta nature reserve is within a 25minute drive and is truly stunning, it is world renowned for the rare species of wildlife and birds. The beaches are incredible, the sand dunes were used as the setting in the film 'Sahara' starring Penelope Cruz. There are also lots of routes to take up into the picturesque mountains, where you will find lots of pretty mountain villages and views that will take your breath away.
