They have their own water source, make their own olive oil, create their electricity with the help of solar panels. Your engaging Dutch hosts love their new project, a beautiful, sustainable, spacious B&B – in harmony with those farming flatlands close to the sea. The lane winds around olive groves with stone-walling and wells, and red ribbons guide you to the Mas! All is welcoming on arrival, and neat and tidy, from informal reception to sleek, fenced pool. Luxurious modernist furniture and elegant stone floors reach to a luminous breakfast room and a big sheltered courtyard. For hot days there’s swimming, trampoline, soccer on the lawns; for windy ones, a games room with ping-pong. It may feel remote but it’s not: you can walk to the spa town of Montbrió; drive to the beaches of Cambrils (7km); discover Roman culture at Tarragona, and Disney-like thrills at the Portaventura theme park in Salou. Back home, five bedrooms and an apartment lie upstairs, stylish and serene: a beautiful bed under white rafters, immaculate wet rooms, windows with views of the mountains, or the distant sea. Breakfasts are local, organic, delicious.
