Quiet but close to the "everything"!

Want to write a book? Make up your mind and your situation? Getting away from "all the daily"? Inspiration?

But if you are sipped and delicate and expect modern comfort more than an antique country house in a beautiful nature then better look for another house or ask us before booking!

.

Historically charming old farmhouse "Casita" renovated for rent.

Spain, Costa Dorada South, L'Ampolla, Sandy Beaches, Mountains, Fishing, Excursions!

View of mountains and valley in the middle of the olive grove. Outside are flowers, cactus (aloe vera).

Opportunities for trips to "continuous" beaches, the idyllic tourist port, 1-class fishing in the river Ebre (Spain's largest) at the coast or at sea. Fantastic experiences by excursions of a few days.

From "beginning of time” there has been olives grown here. Our plantation 38.000 m2 is preserved biological and has 400 olive trees mainly several hundred of years old about 100 carob trees and many other fruits, nuts, and spices-trees and bushes.

A single olive tree thousand years old near the house is preserved through the ages as a shaded pavilion 45 meters in circumference.

Have a walk in the small but deep valley of the plantation - which has grown wildly – and you will see rosemary, thyme, St. John's wort, asparagus figs, grapes, carob, laurent- almond-, and walnuts-trees and a tomb. The area is visited from time to time by wild boars and a Golden Eagle family of 3 eagles which lives in the close by mountains.

The area has its own "micro climate", and is one of the driest and sunny places in Spain. In summer when most warm often comes a refreshing

breeze from the mountains!

The area and Tortosa are mentioned in the history. "Hannibal" gathered his troops here before the invention of Rome. The city of Tortosa writes its history back to the time of Christ. A huge fort, the old town and the cathedral is worth a visit. There are good shops and a lively arts scene.

The narrow mountain road via "Col de Alba" with its landscape and views are a "must"!.

Only within 1 hour (45 km) you are at the top of the nearest Mount Caro 1442 m. and the National Park with a dramatic view. Here you often meet mountain goats, golden eagles and vultures.

Up river Ebro you may visit Miravet Castle and the old town (75 km). A small ferry driven by the river current takes you over the river.

Ebro Delta has a large production of rice and mussels and a very rich fishing from its beaches. Together with the Mediterranean the Delta gives the air humidity. The river it’s self is famous for its cat fishing and excursion possible by vessel or rent a small boat.

Ebro Delta Natural Park is famous for bird watching with a population of Flamingos

Guestbook comments from the owner

September 2014. . Asta & Julius Matikas from London:

We feel still a bit over emotional to describe our experience at Casita Buen Viento.

It was the best holiday ever!!! We are couple in our middle thirties, who live, work and study in London. We felt exhausted of our busy and stressful city life and we were looking for something different for our holiday.

We find everything we were looking for at Casita Buen Viento and even more than we may expect to! We stayed in this place for seven nights and it still seems as a movie, or book, or just dream...

Casita Buen Viento is located in the middle of olives plantation, between sea and gigantic mountains. The place is so special and spiritual that it is impossible to describe it.

It is impossible to evaluate the view directly from your bed when you are opening eyes at the morning, or lazy siesta time in the hammock under olive’s tree, or swimming in the pool on the middle of night with the lightning and thunder in mountains...

The fantastic beaches, unique, mesmerizing mountain views, cosy, warm, and soo Spanish L'Ampolla, 2 hours travel to Barcelona, wonderful local people, real food and heady wine ... The property is so romantic, authentic and charming! Our love and the best wishes forever to landlords to Mr and Mrs Peetz!! WARNING: The place is not recommended for people who are looking for all inclusive and busy night life.

Gorgeous and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this little casita and were amazed that the whole finca is 'off grid' i.e. all the electricity is produced by the owner's solar panels and the water is from the well. Viggo and Tamara were so helpful and fantastic hosts.

In terms of the house itself: the décor is rustic and tasteful and the outdoor spaces are lovely, with a little terrace outside the bedroom with beautiful mountain views. The swimming pool was out of action when we went (undergoing repairs) but would be amazing in the heat. It also has its own microclimate, being a little more windy at times than nearby areas. It's really enjoyable to walk around Viggo's finca and the nearby Cardo valley and mountains, too, with the great views over Tortosa.

There's so much to do around here: in one direction you have the delta (check out the local rice drink), as well as beaches (we recommend Cap Roig). In the other direction you have Els Ports national park (we recommend the walks around La Font de Sant Roc, and the pretty mountain village of Pauls) for amazing views and walking. In between you have the Ebro, with all its history (check out the museum at Gandesa) and castles (e.g. in Tortosa and at Miravet).
