Beach flat in San Carlos de la Rápita (Ebro Delta)

Our flat is in the heart of the Ebro Delta, just 5 minutes from the beach. It’s on the first floor of a quiet building. It has got two single-bed bedrooms and a double-bed one, two bathrooms, a spacious kitchen and a dining-room. There’s also a patio where children can play and clothes can be hung to dry. The building has got two elevators.

You can find a supermarket, a bakery and a greengrocer’s just in front. The supermarket is open all week, Sundays included from June to September. There’s a bar on the ground floor which offers free internet access and affordable tapas and meals. It’s a quiet bar which closes in the evening, so it’s not noisy at night. Along the sea promenade there are many tapas bars, a wide variety of restaurants and an area of cocktail clubs.

In the town you can enjoy a wide variety of beaches, from wide and long ones to small and quiet “calas”. All of them are equipped with showers and toilets and two of them have lifeguard services.

There’s a natural coastal path which is great for short treks and direct access to all the Ebro Delta, where you can cycle while enjoying the immense variety of wildlife and wonderful views of the ricefields, lagoons and the Ebro river. The zone was declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO, thanks to its landscape richness, the representativeness of its Mediterranean ecosystems and its model of biodiversity conservation.

Trekking in the mountains is also possible, as the Montsià mountain range is accessible by bike from the town and the higher Els Ports range is just a 30-minute drive. Wine enthusiasts can visit the Terra Alta and Priorat areas, just 45 minutes away. If you love cities, you can take a bus to Valencia or Barcelona from the bus stop across the street. If you go by car, it’s a two-hour drive.

About Our Family

We are a four-member family. Fernando is a 45-year-old English language teacher. Marta is 43 and teaches German. Both of us teach languages to adult people (16-99). Víctor is 11 and Lídia is 8. We speak Catalan, Spanish, French, German and English.

We work at a state-run language school for adults. In our free time we like reading, walking and cycling.

We have welcomed Intervac guests for 10 years. They were European people who exchanged houses with a friend of us. While our friends were on holiday, we showed their exchange families around the region and shared meals with them.

We have prepared a blog showing our flat, town and the surrounding area (Delta del Ebro), it's https://ebreregion.wordpress.com/

Lifestyle

We try to lead an active and healthy social and family life. We attend local events at weekends and practise sport regularly. We like going for long walks and sometimes we also go cycling.
