El Figueral Sunrise- El Figueral Rural Tourism Spain

We spent one week at El Figueral in August 2019 and it did not disappointment! The house is beautifully situated in the mountains overlooking the Rio Ebro. The views were absolutely stunning. The location is what makes this property so unique. From almost every room in the house were amazing views. The pool was a winner for both kids and adults. The local village offered a small grocery store, bakery and butcher shop. We had a delicious meal at one of the local restaurants. There were 9 of us including 4 children and we all had an amazing time. There were many activities available to us – we fished (equipment was provided by the owners), went on a river boat cruise and also kayaked along the river (a highlight!).

David and Angeles were welcoming, gracious hosts and very responsive to our questions and needs. Eloi, their local property manager/helper was friendly and very, very helpful. Eloi helped book our activities. I would highly recommend this property to anybody. It is truly a special place!

Where We Ate

Lunch at mas De Curto, brilliant, a real find, all reviews proved accurate. L’Estany beach, near L’Ametllja, an excellent lunch at the Xiringuito (beach bar). El retiro, just outside Xerta, a Michelin star restaurant. Incredible food, surroundings and experience. Be very hungry when you go, especially with the tasting menu, and helpful with any dietary changes. L’Ampolla area beach, a light lunch at a taperia called Just Alex. Only been open over a month. But very tasty food. In the village: small bar Catreig, surprisingly very good. Rosa Maria restaurant, again very tasty, The Xiringuito restaurant in the village, quality was super. Hotel Pepo, probably the most adventurous of all the village eateries. Again, go hungry for a great experience.

Beaches

L’Estany, near L’Ametllja, longish, clean. One of the many beaches at L’Ampolla, very pretty, blue flag, not too busy.

What We Did

Village Tour: Eloi got us on to a private tour of Benifallet, an eye-opener, the old church, the old honey mill, tales of Moors, civil wars and river floods. Las cuevas De Benifallet, wonderfully cool inside (18C), compared to 44C outside. The guide was good. Excellent, worth a trip.
Benifallet boat trip: It is very informative, the commentary is in Catalan, everything is, but some Spanish and English meant we could understand. Beware of resin leaking wooden seating, it ruins clothes.
Tortosa: We spent a couple of hours in Tortosa, the biggest and busiest local town. Quite old, the cathedral is worth a visit.
The green way: Bicycle excursion, electric bikes are on offer. You go past fab scenery and tunnels, thoroughly enjoyable.
Local shops: Arriving late Saturday, we had pre ordered some provisions, worth it, as san Juan festival meant no shops were open till Tuesday! The village shops are not numerous, but there’s a butcher, gift and a corner shop, Suma, an Aladdin’s cave. Had it not been for the heatwave, we might have ventured more.
Kayaking: A great half day experience, breakfast, swim and guide provided. Well worth it. The fruit and honey seller will recommend buying the kayak and boat trip tour together, from the Tourist Office, saves some money.
General: 46C was overwhelming, so stayed by the beautiful pool, the scenery and the air conditioning! Every other day we BBQed. All facilities suited us very well. The property, and the surrounding land was maintained by Eloi, he volunteered taking us to and from restaurants, there are no taxis. We are v grateful! Thanks to David y Angeles

Situated in a remote stunning location with panoramic views over the river Ebro .... However, the highlight was the fishing from the private pegs on the riverbank.... This time the fish were plentiful, Tom and Nick both broke the 100lb barrier with 126lb and 130lb respectively. backed up with several other cats at 68, 49, 45, 39, 36 ... Also, a number of carp were caught best in at 22lb common. Thoroughly enjoyable holiday. Thanks to David and Angeles for their hospitality and a special thanks to the attention and support from Eloi. Many thanks Nick, Tom, Janice, Kelly, Grace and Lauren 23.09.2018
