Manna House Barn

Overview
Holiday Rental House -
5 Bedrooms , 5 Bathrooms , Sleeps 10
L'Ampolla, Terres de l'Ebre, Province of Tarragona, Catalonia
Manna House Barn is a superb conversion of an old building and consists of 5 bedrooms with their own self-catering lounge and dining room, kitchen and barbecue area. It is set on a working olive, almond and carob finca (farm) in the beautiful Spanish countryside 15 minutes from some wonderful beaches.

Each bedroom has it's own en-suite bathroom and has underfloor heating, ensuring that bare feet will still feel warm in winter on our beautiful tiled floors.

All the gas that we use is bottled butane and is very clean. All electricity is full domestic supply and is powered entirely by the sun through our own bank of solar panels and batteries. The batteries do not provide enough power for hair dryers, coffee machines or mobile air conditioning units so please leave these at home.

We also have our own borehole for water which is 230m...

Interaction with guests
On your arrival we will be here to give you the keys to the property and show you where everything is. We live here all year round so are always here to show you our sustainable lifestyle and how we reduce our impact on the environment, chat about the weather, the best beaches, sights to see, what's going on in the area or to hear about what a wonderful day you have had. We have met some wonderful people from all over the world and it is always great to meet new ones. Tourism is an extraordinary tool that enables us to reach out to people, makes us more open to change, more receptive to differences and, therefore, more tolerant. We will send you detailed directions on how to find the farm nearer your arrival time.

Simon and Amanda gave us the perfect welcome. We loved the farm and quiet setting. The rooms were spotless and comfortable. The nearby beaches were beautiful and uncrowded. It was incredibly relaxing. We would love to go back there.More

When temperatures are high, the whole building is insufferably hot! There is no relief from the heat which gets soaked up all day long into the building and inside the building, especially the living room, becomes even hotter than being outside in the sun. Due...More

The nearest airport is Reus which is about 70km away with most european airlines coming there. There is easy access from most UK airports and Ryanair, Easyjet, Bmibaby, Monarch etc. all fly to Barcelona which is about 160km from us. There are 2 main roads from the airport, the N340/A7 and the AP7 and they both run along the Mediterranean coast, ensuring beautiful views of the sea before you reach us. There are several car hire companies at the airports including Gold Car Rental, Auriga Crown, Avis and Hertz, and it is easy to book these on-line from the UK. Just Google car hire at Reus or Barcelona airport.

We are situated in the countryside just outside the town of L'Aldea off the N340 and we are about 10 minutes from the sea.
