Frequently asked questions

Is the Villa safe for children?

The villa is as safe for children as any other property.

The villa has got a pool so we kindly ask children are supervised at all times around that area.

How long/deep is the pool?

The pool is about 15 foot long by 8 foot wide. It has steps in the shallows and at the other end it is about 5 foot deep.

Are there any facilities for children?

On request we can provide a cot, a baby chair and a baby bath.

The cot has a mattress and a mattress cover, but we do ask if you could bring your own linen.

Is there a BBQ?

Yes. There are also plenty of logs and bay leaves to make it smell delicious!

Are the beaches sandy or stony?

Both! There’s a long stretch of beautiful golden sand in L´Ampolla. However, there are also small sheltered stony coves if you prefer.

Where are the Supermarkets and when are they open?

Spain usually doesn’t open on Sundays or holidays.

There’s a Suma supermarket in L´Ampolla (a bit like Budgens), which should have everything you need.

In Deltebre about 8 miles away there is a much larger Supermarket (a bit like Tesco).

Near Reus airport there is an enormous Carrefour open 10 to 10 everyday (except Sundays and holidays of course!).

What are the restaurants like and are they expensive?

You’ll find every kind of restaurant in Costa Dorada (except Indians for some reason).

In L´Ampolla there are no Burgerkings or MacDonalds – just nice traditional fayre. However if you’d like a pizza with chips there are a couple of restaurants in town you can go to. As for cost, it’s really not that expensive at all.

Is the Villa heated?

No – but if you are going out of season we can provide some calor gas heating.

Usually, unless you are extremely unlucky, the weather is wonderful between May and September and the pool area is a real sun trap.

Can I book on-line and is it secure?

Yes and yes. To book just go to the “bookings” page and follow the three easy steps. The pay page itself is operated by Worldpay (part of the Royal Bank of Scotland group) and has nothing to do with us. When you put your credit card details in we have no knowledge of, or access to your details. All we get is your money forwarded to us (less Worldpay commission!). Their page is encrypted so you can be assured of security.

Is the booking information on this site up-to-date?

Yes – always. When anyone books, the information is automatically updated.
