Interaction with Guests
Since I am a very sociable person, I thought this might be a nice and interesting expirience to meet guest coming from all over the world.
I was born in Calafell, so I have knowledge of the town, traditions, surroundings, sights and services.
Speak Catalan, Spanish, French and Danish understand, but it's been a while since spoken.
Although I like talking to my guests, I have full understanding of the privacy of my guests.
Feel free to ask any questions you may have or any problems that may arise.
Also worth visiting the Iberian village of Les Toixoneres (5th to 2nd centuries BC), which is currently known as the Iberian Citadel of Calafell and which has been rebuilt and the atmosphere reconstructed so that visitors can conjure up the civilization which inhabited the area 2,500 years ago.
WORTH VISITING outside Calafell
The Penedés region has been making waves not only for its famed cava production (Spanish sparkling wine), but also for its rich variety in white and red wines.
The landscape in the Penedés is warm and gentle, bathed in a golden Mediterranean light, and marked by the many civilizations that passed through or settled the area. Thus, the region is also a place of fascinating historical wealth, traceable through the architectural landmarks left behind by ancient Romans, medieval monks and modernist masters.
Tarragona 'the Balcony of the Mediterranean' is, owing to the Romans, arguably the most elegant city of the Iberian peninsula.
The Roman ruins of Tarragona have been designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
