This characterful 3-bedroom house is on the Priorat olive farm of Maggie Whitman and writer Martin Kirby, known to millions from the No Going Back documentary and Martin's books.
The farm which also has vines almonds and fruits, is in the beautiful Priorat mountains, south of Barcelona and just 40 minutes from Reus Airport, Tarragona and the beach, and the location will appeal greatly to food and wine enthusiasts, bird watchers, walkers, climbers or anyone seeking a taste of real Iberia or simply wanting a holiday with a difference. Children are very welcome indeed.
