Manna House Barn is a superb conversion of an old building and consists of 5 bedrooms with their own self-catering lounge and dining room, kitchen and barbecue area. It is set on a working olive, almond and carob finca (farm) in the beautiful Spanish countryside 15 minutes from some wonderful beaches. Each bedroom has it's own en-suite bathroom and has underfloor heating, ensuring that bare feet will still feel warm in winter on our beautiful tiled floors. All the gas that we use is bottled propane and is very clean. All electricity is full domestic supply and is powered entirely by the sun through our own bank of solar panels and batteries. The batteries do not provide enough power for hair dryers, coffee machines or mobile air conditioning units so please leave these at home.

The batteries do not provide enough power for hair dryers, coffee machines or mobile air conditioning units so please leave these at home. We also have our own borehole for water which is 230m deep, ensuring clean fresh water all year. We encourage our guests to use water wisely. It is such a precious resource and we try to be as efficient as possible with its use; for example we use the water from the washing up to water the trees outside the property and we encourage people not to leave taps running while brushing their teeth or washing their hands. The finca is a wonderful place to explore and has a multitude of places where you can feel completely alone and find that quiet moment to catch up on your favourite book or just enjoy some sunbathing. We have chickens for fresh eggs and our 3 lovely dogs who will make good friends with you. The swimming pool is at the side of the Casita and has its own sun terrace. The pool is not supervised so young children should not be allowed to play there without being accompanied. Near to the property is our own Petanque court which provides hours of fun for all the family. Our finca has been licensed by the Catalunya Tourist Board to offer holiday accommodation. This organisation promotes the provision of a high standard of accommodation and service to holidaymakers in Catalunya. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: HUTTE002393More

Interaction with guests
On your arrival we will be here to give you the keys to the property and show you where everything is. We live here all year round so are always here to show you our sustainable lifestyle and how we reduce our impact on the environment, chat about the weather, the best beaches, sights to see, what's going on in the area or to hear about what a wonderful day you have had. We have met some wonderful people from all over the world and it is always great to meet new ones. Tourism is an extraordinary tool that enables us to reach out to people, makes us more open to change, more receptive to differences and, therefore, more tolerant. We will send you detailed directions on how to find the farm nearer your arrival time.

Simon and Amanda gave us the perfect welcome. We loved the farm and quiet setting. The rooms were spotless and comfortable. The nearby beaches were beautiful and uncrowded. It was incredibly relaxing. We would love to go back there.More

When temperatures are high, the whole building is insufferably hot! There is no relief from the heat which gets soaked up all day long into the building and inside the building, especially the living room, becomes even hotter than being outside in the sun. Due...More

About the neighborhood
Situated mid-way between Barcelona and Valencia, this is an area famous for its high quality rice production. The Spanish love Paella and much of Spain's rice is grown here. The region is rich in wildlife and birds and the scenery is stunning, boasting everything from high mountains to beautiful sandy beaches. An area of outstanding natural beauty, the area is perfect for fishing, walking, mountain-biking, diving, golf, sightseeing or just recharging your batteries away from the stress and strain of the modern world. There are local sports centres and an indoor swimming pool only around 10km from us.
Getting around
The roads here are wonderful, newly built and provide access to just about everywhere you could want to go. Fuel is relatively cheap so driving is a great way to see the country at your own pace. The train services are very good, clean and cheap. A ticket to Barcelona for example costs around €12 for an adult and takes just under 2 hours.
