Rural Horizons Guest House

Carrer Pla de la Bassa, Forès, Spain

Welcome to Rural Horizons

Rural Horizons is beautiful accomodation with capacity for from 2 to 10 people. It is located overlooking the impressive vastness of the Conca de Barberà; 45km behind the most beautiful beaches of the Costa Dorada near Tarragona, and 115km from Barcelona up the A2 freeway. It is an old, completely renovated eco-friendly stone farm-house, very comfortable; ideal for a holiday base on the Ancient Cistercian Route, with fantastic views from the Pyrenees right down to the Camp/coast of Tarragona.

On the upper floor there are 3 bedrooms (for 6/7 people) plus one on the ground floor (for 2/3 people). The village is at an altitude of 865m., which means a lot of coolness in summer. When down on the coast they sleep sweating in the sticky heat, up here there is a wonderful freshness, which explains why there is no need for air-conditioning!

The thick stone walls maintain  apleasant coolness in summer and warmth the rest of the year. Big, comfortable lounge diner; well-equipped kitchen, with even a pizza oven. Linens and towels are included. TV/wifi/Chromecast, yoga or activities room (where bikes can be parked), excellent central heating. All in a very nice rustic style. Information about beautiful sites to visit in the region available. Quality bar/restaurant nearby, only open half the week except in summer.

Optional services: internet - wifi(free) - breakfast: 5€ a head (minimum 2 days - 4 days notice needed) - turkish sauna: 5€/person/30min. Only small pets with very good behaviour, like lap-dogs. Please consult with us before bringing them to the property.

All the monasteries of the Cister nearby: Santes Creus, historically fascinating; Vallbona de les Monges, quaint and still functionning; and Poblet, beautiful and universally appreciated, with natural landscapes, caves, swimming pools. We can give you guidance on where to go for the excellent and good value local gastronomy. Equipped kitchen includes cloths etc. 2TV's. Yoga or activites room with translucent wood stove.
