Kids at Casa Bahia: We aim to make Bahia as child-friendly as possible for a relaxing holiday experience all round. We hope the following information can give you sufficient information on the local facilities:
The villa is located just 25 mins drive from Reus airport and 1 hr 15 mins drive from Barcelona airport, so there are no lengthy transfers to spoil the start of your holiday.
The villa lounge, dining area and kitchen are all open plan so it's easier to keep an eye on active babies and toddlers. The lounge furniture, dining furniture, and the patio furniture purchased were all replaced in the last few years. The kitchen was refitted a few years ago and now includes a dishwasher and microwave. Given that the family use the house the kitchen is well equipped.
The two main bedrooms both have new mattresses purchased in 2016/2017.
All external doors are lockable with a 'Chubb'-style lock. Doors to balconies which are out of bounds can be locked and the key removed for safety.
Cot and bedding provided on request
The villa has a flat lawn/paved garden and off-road parking which is enclosed by walls and a gate to prevent children or dogs escaping. The villa was fully repainted in 2011.
One very useful thing for all is the secluded outside shower (hot and cold water) which enables you to get rid of the sand and salt after the beach without going into the house.
There are children's playgrounds in Parc Sama and in Cambrils for days away from the beach.
The Universal Studios Theme Park Port Aventura is only 15 car mins away:
Other observations-1: The beaches (Playa Pixerota)
We tend to go to the small beach featured in the photos which is a 2-3 minute walk and about 100 m (go out the gate turn left past 4 houses and across the road and you are there). It is very sandy and shallow but has a small beach bar for drinks, tapas and ice creams (look-up Xiri Felic on Facebook). The food there is excellent quality and reasonably priced. It often has a number of local residents from Mont Roig (they say locals know best!) with other local residents including German, Russian, French and a few English families.. Walking along the main beach in the Cambrils direction there is a larger beach bar which is open until late and does burgers, chips etc. Walking another 10 minutes towards Cambrils past the campsite is a great small bar (5 tables) where he makes a great Sangria!
As well as the beach bars, there are three restaurants within a few minutes walk. Casa Paco is opposite and has a tapas and fuller menu, Los Pinos is 150m to the right and has nice paella once a week and Maison Bahia is 150m to the left and the most popular with a more German menu.
Miami Playa has some great little supermarkets including Michaelangelo which has alot of international food (both UK and German) as well as International newspapers. There is a good fruit stall on the way to Miami Playa on the right hand side. For better value there are supermarkets in Cambrils including a Lidl and Esclat (which has a good fish counter) or the markets. Drive 2 junctions along the A7 to Hospitalet and there is a new Lidl and Mercadona just off the main road.
There is a small shop 2 streets away which is about a 5 minute walk or the campsite or petrol station on the main road. All sell fresh bread in the morning.
Other observations-2: Visits
Port Aventura is well worth a visit with Children. We often go late afternoon and stay for the evening as the queues are often better.
For lower cost visits, try Parc Sama which is a 'Gaudiesque' park with some odd follies, ponds, streams etc. This is about 3 miles from Cambrils over the motorway.
Cambrils is worth a visit as a nice fishing port and a number of shops, cafes and restaurants.
Further afield is Tarragona which has some great Roman ruins near the port (including an Amphitheatre); the Ebre Delta (for bird watchers) and the medieval town of Peniscola).Get the full listing »
