Our well equipped cottage has vines over the terrace and fresh herbs to pick There's a small pool and plenty of space to relax. The farm is close to Mediterranean, mountains and Ebre delta. Well placed to visit both Barcelona and Valencia.

The space

We are about 10 minutes from the Mediterranean coast. Our old stone built cottage is a stones throw from our farm house and has been completely renovated and refurbished. We are licensed with the Generalitat of Catalonia and can accommodate two comfortably and up to four people.
The cottage has a mezzanine bedroom with ladder-like stairs and wrought iron bannisters double bed. It has views over the farm and over to the Mediterranean. There's a sweet little kitchen with a gas hob and microwave, lovely local artisan dishes, glasses and tumblers and a large selection of pots and pans along traditional Spanish paella dish and tapas dishes. We provide complimentary olive oil from our farm and you can buy free range eggs and home made jam You will eat your meals inside or out under a canopy of vines.
Under the mezzanine is the sofa-bed to accommodate two more guests. There is also a cot available should you need one. There's log burner for winter nights which keeps the cottage cosy. There is a large bathroom with oodles of towels. Outside the casita we have converted the old "balsa" into a swimming pool for you to cool off in.
There is also a large petanca/boules/pétanque court available for you to use here on the farm.
We offer tapas and paella cooking lessons for couples by arrangement.

Guest access

There are seven acres for you to wander round, A small pool to cool off in, furnished terraces around the cottage, barbecue, and a picnic cool-box to use. The pool is shared.

Interaction with guests

We live on the farm and can help with as much or as little as you want, be it directions to the best beach or borrowing extra plates for a party! You can get involved with the work on the farm or get into the kitchen for some Mediterranean Cooking lessons too.

Other things to note

We are off the grid here; water and power are treated with respect. Our water comes from a bore hole and has been tested by a Pharmacy and is of a very high quality. It is pumped into a storage tank and is sometimes held for about a week. So we have put a water purifier in the cottage for you to use so that there is no need to buy any water whatsoever.
The electricity which works the lights and pumps etc comes from the solar power system. We are truly sun worshippers here. HUTTE 002393

There is a Welcome Pack which includes guidelines for looking after the finca and what we expect from our guests. Simple things like being careful to close gates behind you because of the dogs, being thoughtful about the use of electricity as this comes from directly from a solar power system and is a limited supply. Also being very careful with fire as olive trees burn very well.
We have another holiday home as well as ours here on the finca and ask that you respect the other visitors who are also here to enjoy the peace and quiet.

Manna House is in a lovely rural setting and Amanda and Simon are gracious hosts. The accomodation is well equipped with the welcome addition of a BBQ and a swimming pool. The house does get pretty warm on hot days especially at night in the sleeping area upstairs. There are screens on all windows so you can leave them open to catch any breeze which is great. Being rural there are dogs and roosters etc so don't expect to sleep late!

The accomodation is as advertised. Amanda and Simon were attentive when required but otherwise we had a quiet relaxing time.

A fantastic stay with fantastic hosts. We loved the casita and Amanda and Simon were friendly and helpful throughout. Our 18 month old daughter had a great time playing with the dogs and feeding the chickens. It was a perfect and relaxing week away in the sunshine!

We loved staying there .. a bit off the beaten path but close enough to beaches and in between Barcelona and Valencia this was a perfect place to relax for a bit .. the hosts are an english couple who have been living in Spain for awhile and they are fantastically welcoming and knowledgable about the area and Spanish life. We really enjoyed sitting in the olive grove just relaxing.. the casita is very cute and such good value I totally recommend it

Hello, I am Amanda and my husband is Simon. We live exactly half way between Barcelona and Valencia along the Mediterranean coast of Spain. We are ex-pats and enjoying the sunshine and space here in Catalonia. We both come from a hospitality and food background and so we know how to look after our guests.We are offering space on our Olive and Almond farm for people who want to see Spanish Spain and get some peace and quiet. We have dogs and chickens and make our own electricity and pump our own water. Drop in if you are passing and see what's happening this week.
