The Olive Garden (El Olivo in Spanish) is a beautifully furnished, air-conditioned apartment with a huge 100 metre square garden with a wonderful stone barbecue for sizzling the steaks in the evenings. We have just done a full refurbishment of El Olivothat provides two modern bathrooms, one ensuite, a new kitchen and extended the sleeping capacity to 8 people as well as installed luxury patio furniture and sun loungers.
El OLivo is accessed by remote controlled security gates and has private and shaded off street parking. There is a fully equipped and upgraded modern kitchen, an American bar with stools, dining area and lounge with digital TV and the option of receiving channels in different languages. There are three bedrooms. The master bedroom is a double bedroom with direct access to bathroom ensuite. The second bedroom comes with two sets of bunk beds while the third provides a single or double bed. The second bathroom services these two bedrooms. The apartment sleeps eight in total. From the lounge there is access through French doors to the patio that in turn leads onto the garden. The patio has an outside sofa, patio furniture as well as sun loungers dotting the lawn. Ideal for a relaxed barbecue and as the pool is just a few meters away, it is so easy to go for a quick dip after lunch. It is accessed by the gate at the end of the garden so little children or indeed pets cannot go wandering. There is also a small playground area. If internet access is a must, you can rent a super fast broadband wi-fi system at a small extra charge. And the last thing is as there are only 10 apartments in the whole complex, it is never crowded and the pool is never full. Nice!!!
El Olivo is just 3 kilometres to the nearby fishing village of L'Ampolla where there are 3 supermarkets, harbor side cafes, restaurants, marine activities etc. And Adrian and Eva of Catalan Ways are here in the village to welcome you and look after you every need.

MORE INFORMATION ON THE AREA:
L’Ampolla which is a quaint fishing village on the edge of the Ebro Delta, a destination which has been a favourite with mainland Europeans for over four decades; they are attracted by its quiet charm, sandy beaches, mountain backdrops and the delta. In fact the delta is a nature reserve protected by UNESCO and is famous as a birdwatchers paradise. L'Ampolla itself is has an elegant charm given by the harbour and maritime boardwalk and a relaxed pace of life. It is known through-out Catalunya for its sea-food and the Marina is dotted liberally with cafes and restaurants. Facilities in the village include a large municipal swimming pool, with the mountains as back-drop, tennis facilities, a summer season night-club and lots of sandy beaches where beach volley ball and sun tans are the order of the day. L’Ampolla also has a busy schedule of events over the Summer and Autumn with music concerts, festivals and special events. You can check it all out on the village web site on http:///eng/
The site is in five languages. Worth a mention is the gypsy market every Wednesday morning where you can find anything from a conga drum to an Arabic tapestry to smoked traditional hams and country olives. It is well worth a potter around for the noise and the bustle and the views of the blue Mediterranean stretching into the horizon. Also worth a mention is the summer camp for kids every day during the summer from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. At just five euros a day, its great value and offers the possibility of having the kids entertained for a few hours as mom and dad take some time out. From Les Oliveres/Cap Roig resort, L’Ampolla is a thirty minute walk by the coastline on the GR9.2 (a way-marked walk that begins in the Pyrinees and goes all the way down the coast and to Valencia) The walk winds its way past hidden coves and beaches, along cliff-tops as the turquoise Mediterranean glitters in the sunshine. Its certainly an idea to ear-mark one morning for this mini-hike into the village as it is truly an invigorating and scenic way to build an appetite before lunch in one of L’Ampolla’s many restaurants.
The nearest big is Tortosa, a old town on the banks of the Ebro river; lest we forget, we should begin with one notable annual event that will simply take your breath away. The Renaissance Festival of Tortosa takes place in the last fortnight in July when groups from all over Europe descend on the town and literally convert it into a Medieval village. There is spectacle and fun, stage shows and sword play, eating and drinking in food halls based on bygone times, thrilling theatre and fireworks to light up the imagination. So if you are lucky enough to be holidaying with Catalan Ways in July, you simply have to visit Tortosa and revel in the spectacle and drama of this unique event. On a less dramatic note, Tortosa is the capital of the delta, a mid-sized town on the Ebro river. It is of striking beauty, dominated as it is by the Parador or old castle that overlooks the town and the river. It has a wonderful park with a huge avenue of Maple trees and of course, the customary playground. The magnificently restored old style food market is a throw-back in time where the scent of seasonal fruits and olives, traditional meats and strong coffee blend in the air. It is open in the mornings from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and is well worth a visit as it has not changed in character since the turn of the last century. A visit to the Parador hotel is also recommended as it offers splendid panoramic views of the city, the Ebro and the ‘Els Ports’ mountain range which rise from the great floodplain in the distance. Have a walk around the garden and battlements, order a coffee in the Parador bar and soak in a different world.
Then just an hour and a half away is Barcelona, the capital of Catalunya, one of the most avant garde cultural and artistic centres in Spain. You can get the train early in the morning from L'Ampolla and in less than an hour and a half, be in the centre of this metropolis; there you can discover the brilliantly idiosyncratic art and architecture of Antoni Gaudi as you stroll through Parc Guell, an urban oasis dotted with whimsical buildings and colourful mosaic sculptures of creatures straight out of Alice in Wonderland. Take a break from shopping in the L'Eixample neighborhood and visit Casa Batllo and Casa Mila, Gaudi-designed apartment buildings whose nautilus-spiral staircases and seashell-inspired exteriors suggest that Captain Nemo was the architect. And you can’t visit Barcelona without going to La Sagrada Familia, the unfinished Gaudi cathedral whose 300-foot ‘Smartie’ spires give the city skyline a surreal birthday cake look. And whether you're rambling among the buskers and artists of La Rambla (where some of the street lamps overhead bear Gaudi’s flamboyant stamp) or tucking into tapas in the shadow of the great cathedral, you'll realize that in Barcelona, strange and wonderful things are everywhere. It is just one of those cities that never ceases to surprise. It truly does make for a wonderful day excursion away from the beach and the Mediterranean.
