The area

Our guest houses are located in the comarca Ribera d’Ebre, in the south of Catalonia. This region has not yet been spoiled by mass tourism. You will therefore find cheap restaurants, quiet villages and beautiful nature.

A number of activities this area is perfect for:

  • Hiking
  • Climbing
  • Cycling
  • Water sports
  • Swimming
  • Fishing

Via Verde

The Via Verde is an old railway that has never been used as such. To give it a useful function, this railway has been transformed into a cycling and walking path. The cycling route from Horta de Sant Joan to Xerta is recommended. Along the way you can enjoy beautiful nature, impressive views and nice stops to have a swim, relax or eat and drink. As you cycle downhill, it is not an intensive route and suitable for all ages.


About 30 minutes from Mas de Muntaner by car you will find both child-friendly and wide sandy beaches as well as quiet pebble bays surrounded by rocks, where you can snorkel. Due to the wide range of beaches there is a good chance that, especially in the early and late season, you can still enjoy the beach and the sea almost by yourself.
