Description
This is a unique and substantial property set in an area of outstanding natural beauty, and it con-sists of a working olive and almond farm occupying 3 hectares on which stand 3 houses: The Barn has 5 bedrooms and is used for tourist accommodation and also for housing volunteers during harvest times, the traditional 1 bedroom stone Casita used for year-round tourist accommodation and finally the owner's house, which has 4 bedrooms.

The farm lies mid-way between Barcelona and Valencia near the Mediterranean coast and sits on the edge of the Ebro Delta, an area of outstanding natural beauty and one of 9 National Parks in Catalunya. There are Motorway, trunk roads and mainline rail links less than 15 minutes away.

The property benefits from a Cedula de Habitation and a Tourist Licence issued by the Generalitat of Catalunya. There is an established holiday rental business here which commenced in 2011 and has grown annually since then. Advertising is currently made through Airbnb and Trip Advisor.

There is huge potential for increasing the range of tourist activities by reaching out to websites that specialise in holidays such as yoga retreats, art holidays and cooking holidays. In addition to the tourist rental income there is also the income from the olive and almond crops and from the sale of ecologic olive oil which is pressed locally and then exported across Europe.

Manna House is licensed to accommodate up to 15 paying guests. The Barn has a large enclosed BBQ area and the owner's house has a large terrace with a full "summer kitchen" including wood fired oven, Chimenea and large BBQ. There is a swimming pool next to the Casita for guest's use and all parking is on the property and off-road.

There is tourist activity in the locality throughout the year from bird and wildlife watching, cycling, walking and many gastronomic festivals. An hour to the north you will find the city of Tarragona with its incredible Roman history. Towards Barcelona there are vineyards of world renown, Rioja for example, and they host tours and tastings. The coast is 15 minutes away. The holiday proper-ties are fully equipped with all that is needed for visitors with games to play on the farm inside and out. There is also a Petanque court within the grounds.

The farm is entirely off-grid and the electricity supply is generated from solar panels into a substantial battery power station with a 3 kw Inverter supplying full domestic current to the 3 houses. A back-up generator is used to charge the batteries during periods of prolonged cloud cover. Gas is supplied from 2 x 1000 litre tanks which are recharged by tanker when required. The owner's house benefits from gas-fired central heating and has additional heating from a log burner in winter. The Barn is heated by gas-fired underfloor heating and the Casita has a log burner. Each property has their own septic tank which discharges clean water to the gardens. There is a 200m deep borehole to provide water, which is stored in an underground cisterna, this feeds all 3 properties. There are 2 internet networks, one is solely for guests’ use and the other for the owner’s use.

The farm is easy to manage, and the current owners accept volunteers from all over the world who come to help with the harvest and perform the regular maintenance programmes in place in re-turn for accommodation. The current owners are happy to introduce the new owners to the various websites used for the volunteer organisations.

The Barn occupies part of a 50m building, a section of which is used for agricultural equipment storage and workshop. All equipment required for harvesting and land maintenance will, of course, form part of the sale, as will the current vehicle (Land Rover Freelander) and large trailer. Membership of the Olive Co-operative will be transferred into the new owner's name as will the EU subsidy which is granted for the care of the olives. The farm is run on a completely ecological manner and no chemicals of any sort have been used on the farm for over 8 years, giving an ecologic status to the olive oil produced here.

The houses will be sold fully furnished (except for some of the owner's personal possessions) and so enable the holiday rental business to continue without any interruption. The owner is happy to provide full assistance with the new owner's understanding of managing the property and the introduction to other owners engaged in this sort of business.
