About this listing

The room is just in front of the Cathedral, in the heart of old Tarraco. The old neighborhood is located in the top of a hill, perfect to get lost, to find romance, architectural treasures, lots of good restaurants and wine-tapas bars. A 10 minutes walk will take you to 2 beaches, and a 15 minutes bus ride to one of the Most Beautiful Mediterranean forested beaches and coves....so if you want to discover Tarragona's secret beaches or if you want to eat the best sea food in town...stay with us. If you want to join me to the organic local producers market on Saturdays stay with us!!! If you want to visit our art gallery located in a medieval volt and meet personally the local artists, musicians and interesting people in town, just stay in our place!! We'll share all the secret places just for you!!
Elegantly decorated and with natural wood furniture, enjoy the great views from the two big windows, one of them looking to the Cathedral.
The dining room, toilet and kitchen (shared areas) have views to a palm trees garden, which is very unique downtown Tarragona.
PLEASE NOTE (so you know from the beginning the sensitive aspects of the apartment):
- Look at the pictures, the only Toilet/Bathroom is new, clean and SMALL.
- We are right next to a beautiful romanic-gothic cathedral. BELLS ring every 1/4 hour (the same for all downtown Tarragona). We are used to them and love their sound, their vibes make part of the magic of the place, but for some people it may be noisy.
- We avoid elaborated cooking or cooking meet while sharing our space. We strongly recommend to try restaurants around the corner from 7 € menu or 2,30 € breakfast.
Looking forward to meet you soon!!!
Soledad & Marta

Interaction with Guests
I am spending the summer season at home as well as my mother, Marta. We work nearby, what take us mostly out the apartment.
The old neighborhood is located in the top of a hill, perfect to get lost, to find romance, architectural treasures, lots of good restaurants and wine-tapas bars. Very difficult to park.

Port Aventura thematic parc is 12 KM away and you can get by public transportation.
Other Things to Note
The building is from the 17th century and the basements probably older. The entrance is amazingly magical and shabby.
NO SMOKING and no pets allowed. You will enjoy very fine and clean carpets so we ask to leave your SHOES (OFF) at the entrance to keep the carpets clean :)
Accueil très chaleureux et sympathique. On se sent très à l'aise tout de suite. e ogement répond en tous points au descriptif et est très bien situé. Nous étions au cour des fêtes de la ville.
Mi estadía fue tranquila y agradable, en cuanto llegue me explicaron los alrededores y como estaban las cosas, lástima que casi no pase tiempo para platicar un poco más, para otra!
Apartamento muy bien situado y muy limpio. Fue la madre de Soli muy simpatica que nos ha acogido. Sin embargo, la cama de la habitacion no es muy comoda, el bano es pequeno y no se podia cerrar la puerta de la habitacion. Salvo esto, todo nos fue bien. Gracias.
oui le logement correspond tout à fait à ce qui est présenté . Très agréable et spacieux , au coeur de la ville .
Accueil très sympatique et chaleureux .
Soly and her mother made me feel extremely welcome, the room was beautiful, and I love the decor. Place had a very family feel and as a women, felt completly at home and safe. I loved my stay and would go again. Some constructive feedback would be to change the sofa bed. And as i was there for 5 days, perhaps leave some spare sheets for me to change. I was unable to also use the drawers and cupboards as all full. However I am used to travelling so was happy to live out of my bag for a few days. Place was fab and the hostesses with the mostesses.
Soly et Marta sont très aimables et accueillantes .
Nous désirions très près de la cathédrale, on ne pouvait pas l'être d'avantage, très bel immeuble ancien, typique.
La chambre est grande, avec deux grandes fenêtres pour créer un courant d'air et goûter l'ambiance des ruelles.
Une petite tour -ventilateur était ( heureusement ) mise à disposition en plus .
We loved our stay in Tarragona. Soly took us out for lunch the first day and showed us all of the must see places on the map. On our last morning Marta helped us by calling us a cab urgently (I realized we had to go to a different train station).
The room is exactly as advertised. We weren't bothered by the church bells. There is a fair amount of traffic noise but nothing to complain about.

About the Host, Soly
I´m Soledad, from Argentina, living in Spain. I travel a lot because of my work. After years of cold hotel rooms, I really prefer staying in sunny and clean apartments where real people live! Is good to feel like home! To me life is about sharing experiences!
