The Experience

A 200-year-old country house just across the border of Tarragona province, beautifully restored – and added to – by conscientious owners. Gaze on wide views from behind a lavender and rose fringe, across terraced gardens and meadows, to the far hills; swim up to them in the salt-water infinity pool. Every detail is carefully considered, from the planting through to discreet car parking and solar panels; no need for air con as underfloor heating turns to underfloor cooling. Everything is of high quality. Well designed indoor spaces framed by stone walls, wooden beams and ceramic floors come with pale sofas, a medium grand piano, open fire places, an honesty bar, a cinema room, a Spa area, a gourmet restaurant in the former stables – great kitchen or outdoor breakfasts too. Bedrooms, in restful colours, have king beds, excellent mattresses and linen; bathrooms have wide modern showers and hand painted tiling. Suites have fireplaces and logs are provided. Hire bikes or hike through the spectacular rock formations of the Matarraña and neighbouring Catalonia; visit the nearby Picasso centre.

Outstanding property in a truly stunning location. Beautifully presented and imaginatively furnished by proud owners Christian and Francoise, who are a reassuring and visible presence. Food has a distinctly Gallic influence, but uses local produce, with limited but excellent choice on a daily changed table d'hôte. There are many amazing and challenging walks in the area - including several from the front door of the hotel. Christian kindly assisted in suggesting routes and translating directions from Spanish to English. Hope we return one day !

Robert, Twickenham

Our family of five (with three teenage daughters) spent 5 nights at Mas de la Costa and enjoyed ourselves enormously. Françoise and Christian were wonderful hosts and attended to our every need (including fixing my husband’s broken suitcase and providing alternative menu suggestions for our vegetarian daughters). The food was delicious and the setting for dinner each night was beautiful. We spent our days visiting local areas (our favourite were the natural pools at Las Pesqueras) or enjoying the tranquillity and breath-taking views from the swimming pool. Recommend highly.

Kate, London

I felt pampered and loved without being overwhelmed. Everything conspired to make our stay very special. It was as though our wealthy but unpretentious friends had invited us to stay in their very beautiful home and then allowed us to indulge our own fancies whilst kindly and quietly attending to our every need.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Françoise & Christian Schaack Ortola

  • Set on the edge of the nature reserve of the Puertos de Beceite: Hiking trails through pine & oak covered mountains; rich wildlife, such as the Spanish ibex (capra pyrenaica) -a shy mountain goat with impressive horns-, and a large population of vultures.
  • Medieval and Renaissance villages in the Matarrana: The nucleus of most villages retains charming ancient buildings. Our favourites: Valderrobres (castle, church), La Fresneda (porches, Encomienda, Virgen de Gracia), Calaceite (porches, Iberian settlement)
  • Bicycling down the Via Verde, an old railroad track through mountains and tunnels. Not to worry: They can come and pick you up at sea level ;-) There are also near-by stables for horse-back riding. Kayaking and mountain climbing are also possible.
  • Natural pools – Cristalline waters: in the summer, a large number of shallow natural pools in the area are a delight for old and young alike. Combine a family picnic with a swim. The Pesquera is a beautiful natural pool near Beceite.
  • Bird watching: Visit a near-by vulture observatory, where hundreds of the scavengers descend every morning for their daily feed. - The Ebro Delta (1h) is a bird watcher’s delight: extensive rice fields are a habitat for thousands of flamingos, herons, ...
  • Within a day-trip’s reach: The medieval ramparts of Morella (40 min). - Superb examples of Mudejar art in Teruel, Calatayud, Tobed, Zaragoza. - Impressive Roman remains (theatre, aqueduct, triumphal arch) in Tarragona, the Roman capital of Tarraconensis.
