This amazing Spanish 'Hobbit House' is one of the finest contemporary sustainable homes in Spain - world-class architecture and an offgrid home that delights with its detail and comfort. This is probably the 'greenest' places to stay in Spain, being entirely off-grid, yet it feels like a stylish architect's own bolthole. This remarkable structure enjoys an amazing secluded mountain location, right up a long track among olive groves, with huge open views across Catalonia. It really is something very special. You can escape the world here for complete privacy...or use it as a base for exploring this unspoilt and very beautiful part of Spain.
Being off-grid often means an experience similar to camping...but not here. The house has been well specified and designed and comes with a standard fridge-freezer, WIFI throughout, and a shower that's always hot. A ten minute drive downhill to the local town with pool, bakeries, restaurants etc.
'This cute property, built into a hillside, is bright and spacious despite its subterranean name and runs on solar panels (and a woodburning stove). Arched windows supply views of eight acres of surrounding olive groves, plus the Els Ports mountains - and paths behind the house lead into the Cardó Boix mountains. There are bars and restuarants in the village and the beaches of the Costa Dorada are half an hour away.' Rachel Dixon in The Guardian.
This sustainably built underground house takes its strength and beauty from its unique domed shape. The house disappears seamlessly into the landscape - surrounded by olive groves and the majestic mountainscapes as a backdrop - you can't help but relax in this captivating peaceful haven. The house has a natural, cool, quirky and unique style - upcycled, salvaged materials and bespoke fittings throughout make the interior a fab place to hang out. From the sandy beaches of the Costa Dorada to the vine groves of the Terra Alta, the Terres D`L'Ebre have so much to offer visitors with a passion for the great outdoors.
From picturesque cycle paths on the Via Verde to mountain walking in the Els Ports mountains, this is an 'outdoorsy' holiday location. Pink flamingos are just the start of the wildlife in the Ebro Delta, with a massive 300 different bird species to be found, including eagles that fly above the house. Find yourself a rock pool swimming hole in a limestone gorge in The Ports de Beceite.
There are good local restaurants, lively fiestas, and beaches just 30 mins away. At home your have views, mountain walks, and privacy in abundance.
This is a great place to hide yourself away or to use as a great base from which to explore the Ebro Valley - you choose!
The property enjoys a good WIFI connection - free of charge.
