The Japanese Room is co called because of the Japanese ladies who are dancing above the bed. The room is one of five which make up Manna House Lodge.

There is a carefully selected pile of books for you to peruse and a choice of double or twin beds with cosy quilts or cool sheets depending on the time of year.

Breakfast is prepared for you and can be served on your terrace, on the big terrace or in the dining room.

We are a working olive and almond farm and there are about 7 and a half acres to explore with hammocks strategically placed in the terraces for you to relax in. There is a big roof terrace which is available for your use during the day.
There is a shared pool of about 20m square and 1.2m deep
Peace and quiet surrounds you as does the mediterranean, mountains and the Ebro.
We live and work on the farm so are on hand if you need us and busy if you don't.
Breakfast is provided for you whenever you want it.
The very Spanish seaside resort with marina at l'Ampolla is 15 minutes away with a huge selection of restaurants and bars with something to suit all tastes and pockets. There are little towns and villages all along the coast all with their own character.
We are close to Tarragona and Tortosa: Valencia and Barcelona a train ride away. There is fishing on the sea and in the river, cycle hire available for the easy delta or the challenging mountains. Els Ports nature reserve is about 25 minutes away with all kinds of outside pursuits available there.
This part of Catalonia is steeped in Roman history and the people have a strong regional identity. There are castles and potters, birds galore and all sorts of beaches.
It is a lovely place to visit for a stopover or for a longer break and really get to know the place.
The closest airport is Reus at 45-50 mins, Barcelona is next at just under 2 hours. There are good rail and bus links to local villages but to get to the farm itself you really need a car. there is plenty of parking at the farm. We have bikes to hire here at the farm and there are great walks.
We are off the grid here; water and power are precious.

What a perfect way to end our Spain vacation. Our little house was perfect and so beautiful and our hosts went above and beyond. The boys fell in love with the animals and each had their favourite dog and waited each morning to hear the rooster. We were lucky to arrive just in time to gather chicken and duck eggs. Amanda cooked an amazing meal for us on our last evening that we enjoyed outside in the sun. The fire was a nice treat for the evenings. L'Ampolla was a pretty beach town to explore with great history shared on the beach front walkway and some of the nicest sea shells we found on the beach. Tortosa had a nice indoor market where we enjoyed mussels and champagne for lunch.
We thoroughly enjoyed the casita and the welcome from Amanda and Simon. It was interesting to see what they are doing on their farm and to meet the many residents, especially the 4-legged ones.
The casita was clean, comfortable and warm, and just simply charming and enjoyable to spend time in. The roads around it are quiet and perfect for walking into the nearby hills. Ampolla and Tortosa are worth visiting as is all of the surrounding countryside. We've visited many places in Spain over the years and can say that Amanda and Simon chose one of the prettiest to make their home.
We'd certainly return and would recommend a stay at Manna House to everybody.
Amanda and Simon's casita is very private, charming, comfortable, and well equipped. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and found it to be a great base for exploring the surrounding countryside. The wood stove had already warmed the casita up so it was quite cozy when we arrived. In fact, Simon prepared the stove every evening for us so all we had to do was drop in a match after returning to the casita after a day of sightseeing. We enjoyed homemade treats, Amanda's jam and Simon's olives, and they had lots of maps and tourist pamphlets with information on the area. The casita was a little challenging to locate, so I would recommend arriving before dark and keeping a cell phone handy in order to call Amanda and Simon in case you have difficulty finding it. We would definitely stay at Manna house again, and it would be a great spot for a family reunion as they have lots of space other than the casita. Thank you Amanda and Simon! Karen and Joe
Very nice moment at this place, far away from city stress, relaxing and nature-friendly. Amanda & Simon are clearly friendly people, Highly recomended!
Beautifull and amazing place,sweetest dogs ever,wonderfull and nice hosts.
We really need a holiday like this,relax,walk and peace.
We sure come back in spring there.
The Manna House was fantastic. Amanda and Simon were wonderful hosts. We were short distances from many sites and the beaches. After a week in Barcelona the Manna House was a great retreat. We learned about olive trees-harvesting the olives, etc. The renovations to the buildings on the property were remarkable. We strongly recommend this as a vacation site.

estacia muy agradable, en la casita de Simon y Amanda. Recomedable para visitar el Delta del Ebro y sus alrededores.
Manna House was just as it is described on the website, beautiful and very peaceful. The Casita is well equipped with a lovely outdoor seating area for meals and relaxing. Amanda and Simon were wonderful and welcoming with lots of good advice on what to do in the area. They cooked us a delicious meal on our final night and were great company too.
La estancia en casa Mamma fue genial. Los Srs. Smith son encantadores, muy acogedores y de trato excelente. Además, la casa está muy bien, es pequeña pero con un encanto especial y tiene una terraza y una piscinita muy agradables. Ideal para parejas que quieren paz y tranquilidad.
For our eight-week European Grand Tour we booked eight AIRBNB accommodations: London, Paris, Zurich, Venice, Florence, Tortosa (Manna House), Bilbao and London again (plus hotels and B&Bs for a total of nineteen different places in seven countries). About halfway through the adventure we were seriously ready for a real rest – we couldn't have picked a better home than Manna House for those five delicious days: It is removed without being remote, modest but not without all the comforts, and quiet but never dull. Amanda and Simon, olive farmers extraordinaire, are friendly, helpful, respectful, interesting and fun. We fell in love with the area, the house, its delightful owners and their endearing assortment of non-human residents. We highly recommend Manna House and its many pleasures!
