Casa Vella del Panta

Riudecanyes, Tarragona

Easy holidaying for large groups or family parties in a smart and secluded house - lovely lake views and 20 minutes drive from the coast


22 beds


10 bedrooms


Sleeps 22


Originally planned for the engineer who built the tranquil reservoir below, this grey stone house has been painstakingly renovated by its creative Danish/Spanish owners. It’s now romantic and quirky, with bedrooms fit for bridal parties, celebration trips or big family groups. The natural world has been invited in, with tree stumps and driftwood as bedside tables and lamps, and it’s energy efficient too thanks to a clever furnace which warms and cooks and solar panels. Extra beds can be put in double rooms for young children, while older offspring climb steep stairs to fun rooms with pallet beds. They might head for the trampoline and pool; for adults it’s lovely to sit in the Mediterranean garden with rosemary and lavender scenting the air. For guests who like action, there’s kayaking or swimming on the reservoir, cycling the Via Verde trail or walking the coastal path from Altafulla to historic Tarragona. It’s olive oil and wine country too, so tastings are easy to organise, and modernist architect Gaudi was inspired by the unique rock formations here – find out more in his birthplace, Reus.

Just returned from a wonderful week at casa vella del panta. The hosts were super helpful making suggestions of places to visit during our trip and were great throughout our visit answering any questions we had. The house itself is stunning. Every room has been lovingly restored and has either an amazing view or access directly into the grounds plus private ensuite which makes such a difference when you're a large group. The communal areas are also perfect for large groups. There's lots to do in the surrounding areas with activities managing to keep our group ranging from 2-72 years old.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Ina Rahbek

  • Unique location with sea, lake and mountain view. Relax in natural surroundings, go for a morning swim in the lake, or a bike ride on small roads amongst olive and hazelnut tree fields.
  • This catalan masia is restored after sustainable principles. Reused bricks and wooden beams, tadelakt in the bathrooms, and autoventilated tiles on the roof to keep temperatures low in summer.
  • In the Eucalyptus tree we have a swing, but you will also find a trampoline for the children and childish to jump on and a tennis table and table football. On the lake, you can rent kayaks to go watching the turtles, padel surf or pedelos.
  • What about a Bike & Wine tour? We are just beside the famous wine area Priorat & have 19 road bike routes leaving directly from the house with different length and height curves, contact us for more details.
  • We have set up a 4 days Culinary tour with visits to wine cellars in Priorat, vermouth winery, local olive oil tastings, cultural visits in the mornings & Catalan cooking courses with a local famous chef.
  • Ideal for events or courses, we do small intimate events, celebrations or weddings with ceremony in the garden or down by the lake. We have contacts to good caterings and can offer the decoration of arch and flowers.
