We have just returned, yet again, to El Pinaret where our family spent a wonderful week. The house is spacious and well equipped, beautifully clean and has the most amazing garden and views.
There is so much to do locally, from mountain walks and seaside trips, ( we even had a January swim!) to visiting medieval towns or modern shopping centres. I would also recommend the local riding stables, La Mussara, where our daughters went out on a beautiful countryside hack. The local food is delicious, the people friendly, and the sunshine very much appreciated in the winter!
Would thoroughly recommend a break here at any time of year.
We loved everything about the house. The location is perfect, close to the mountains but not far from the beach too. There are lots of things to visit and do in the area. The house is very nice, it has all you need for a short stay, the spaces inside are fantastic, everything is very spacious. The outside area is very pretty, and we could dine outside (in November!!) while the kids played around in the garden. We would definitely recommend it!
We had a lovely week in this villa where the owners have provided everything you need. The kitchen is very well equipped and even has a cupboard of herbs and spices. There was a large collection of books and games which entertained the children. The pool is very welcome on a hot day. The BBQ area and numerous outdoor eating areas encourage al fresco dining. Plenty of towels and linen. Nice to have basics like toilet roll, dishwasher tablets etc provided. You definitely need a car to get around but there are some lovely places to visit that are only 20-30 minute drive away such as Mont Blanc and Tarragona beach. We had a day trip into Barcelona and drove to Gava, parked up for free and bought a T-10 ticket for €9.90 that gave family of 5 a return trip into the city centre. Would highly recommend this lovely villa but you will need plenty of mosquito spray when sitting outside. Good communication from owners and received deposit back with no issues.
Just returned from family holiday, teenage children and a parent. All had a fabulous time. Villa very easy to find. Support from Andy and Maria before we visited was always speedy and excellent. Once there Michele who lives nearby was really helpful. The seclusion of the villa was just what we needed. Michele suggested Consum as the local supermarket to use and we gorged on their fresh fish counter. Close enough to many places for visiting but as we'd just spent a week sightseeing in Barcelona we mostly stayed put and enjoyed the villa, apart from the obligatory Portaventura trip with teenagers (although we love it too!). Hope to be able to visit again in the future. Thanks Andy, Maria and Michele.
We returned to El Pinaret this April having missed it so much since our last visit. The villa is so peaceful, yet close to many attractions such as the beautiful beaches, the mountains and lovely medieval villages and monasteries.
The house has everything you need. It is extremely clean and the beds are very comfortable. We ate outside everyday, enjoying the beautiful views across the countryside to the sea. The night skies were also spectacular.
The owner's parents, Liz and Michel, live nearby and are wonderful people. Michel's wine is superb!
We are already trying to plan our next visit!

El Pinaret is very lovely house. You have everything for successful vacation, even the log fire in October. Property is very private, in quiet area, surrounding the forest hills to protect from the wind. House is very comfortable. View is great. Reus and Tarragona are very close and wonderful Montblanc, too. Excellent place to stay in Catalunya.
