Description from the owner
In the Southern corner of Catalonia, in the Province of Tarragona the River Ebro completes the last stretch of its journey to the sea. The beautiful Ebro Valley and the adjacent mountains form a region described by the tourist board as "a new area for rural tourism" .
Our apartments have a superb position on the banks of the River Ebro in the small town of Mora d'Ebre. Located just 30 minutes inland from the Costa Dorada, Mora d' Ebre offers a taste of rural Spain, off the regular tourist track but not isolated and still within easy reach of beaches, major cities and the Ebro Delta.

A Delightful Riverside Holiday in Rural Catalonia
Mora d'Ebre, Catalonia, Spain
Additional Location Information
River Ebro Apartments are situated on a quiet riverside street, in the historic quarter of Mora d'Ebre just below the castle. The riverbank, a recreation area with BBQ facilities and country lanes are literally only metres from your front door. In the other direction you are only 2 or 3 minutes walk from a lively little town with plenty of boutique type shops. There are also some very good restaurants serving typical Catalan cuisine with quality fish, seafood, cured meats, and fruit and vegetables according to what is in season. Don't come if you are a fast food fan- the nearest MacD is 60 km away!
Mora d'Ebre is centrally located in the Lower Ebro Valley. The lowlands are a patchwork of neat fields growing peach, pear, cherry, orange, olive and almond trees. It is a delight to see in Spring when the trees are in blossom and the wild poppies and margaritas flower. River activities include fishing for the enormous catfish and carp, leisure trips in boats or hiring a kayak and paddling your way down the river.
To the West of the valley rise the Els Ports mountains a wild and craggy landscape with large areas of pine forest and a rich variety of wildlife such as the wild cat, the mountain goat, wild boar, vulture and golden eagle. There are fantastic, virtually unknown walking trails, a purpose made cycling track and stunning landscapes. To the East are the famed Priorat vineyards where vines cling precariously to seemingly impossible slopes and where you may wish to visit a bodega or two!. This area too has many walking trails and is also renowned for excellent climbing opportunities.
Where the river meets the Mediterranean you will find the Ebro Delta. In contrast to the mountains left behind this is completely flat land covering an area of 320sq kilometres which was made a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in 2013. It is a watery land of lagoons, rice paddies, salt lakes and reed beds which form a unique ecosystem supporting hundreds of species of birds. The light and reflections also make it a haven for photographers.
The golden sands of the Costa Dorada are only 30 minutes away. Take your pick from deserted coves, pretty fishing ports or low-key resorts. For a livelier family day out Port Aventura Theme Park near Salou is only 45 minutes drive from Mora.
If you like to dig into a regions history, you will not be disappointed. The cities of Tarragona, Tortosa, Reus and several medieval villages are all worth a visit for Roman remains, castles and modernist architecture and the more recent history of the Spanish Civil War.
The nearest airport to this location is REUS (45 mins) or failing that BARCELONA is just short of a 2 hour drive. We recommend that you hire a car if you want to explore the area to the full. There is plenty of car parking space on the street directly outside the apartments.
We have lived in this area for 9 years and have a good knowledge of things to do and places to go as well as stacks of tourist information for you to browse. We also have contacts with local activity providers (for kayaking, clay pigeon shooting, guided walking, fishing etc). We can prepare of a pack of information and maps to suit your interests and we are happy to book activities on your behalf. We also have fishing tackle, golf clubs, beach towels, cool box and picnic set to hire.
