Description (written by the owner)

Imagine a 5 star hotel with its space, elegance, every luxury then imagine that this hotel is exclusively for you, for your family and your friends. Then imagine Carpe Diem….

Carpe Diem is a 450 metres square mansion designed by a team of architects and interior designers to bring you the perfect space to enjoy, relax in and have the time of your life. First time on the market, it is less than 100 metres from the beautiful Cap Roig beach. You enter the grounds through automatic gates and there is garage parking for two cars, extensive landscaped gardens, a front and rear lawn. On four levels, the garden/basement level offers you a heated 10 meter-long indoor pool with chill out area and a separate kitchen and lounge for staff or friends; the automatic gated garage is also located on this level: then you ascend by the bright inox stairwell and that brings you to the ground floor level and the entrance foyer. This floor enjoys 140 square meters of internal light filled space that provides a state of the art kitchen with twin extractor fans to ensure no smoke or smells, a breakfast area with wide-pane French windows leading onto the patio, decking and pool areas. All of the windows have electric aluminum shutters and retractable mosquito nets. The kitchen leads into a spacious corridor where the dining area is located behind 4 metre-high glass paneled doors to enhance the sense of light and space. The lounge is open plan with home entertainment system and a glass surround fireplace. While this can and has been used, it is decorative as the whole Villa comes with underfloor heating. From the open plan lounge, you have direct access to the decking and pool area. The pool is designed with a beach effect that slopes into the blue water so you can stroll in for a dip. There is also a jacuzzi in the pool with seating for eight as well as a 1.6 metro deep section. It has wrap-around teak decking and is just five metres from the summer kitchen with stone barbecue and pizza and roast meats oven with thermostat to make sure it is all cooking at just the right temperature. There is also an outside dining area, sun-lounges dotted round the patio and comfortable patio armchairs and sofas to sit and have a coffee. In fact you might be tempted to spend your whole holiday on this level but then you would be missing out on the amazing facilities upstairs.

On the second floor there are three bedrooms. Bedroom one could be called the master bedroom as it has a walk-in wardrobe, en-suite wash room with twin sinks, a separate bathroom with shower, toilet and bidet. However it has competition from the second bedroom as it also has a king-size bed with access to a private balcony with sea views and a large en-suite bathroom with shower enclosure, bath, and twin sinks. The third bedroom has two single beds, access to the balcony through french door and it too has its own en-suite bathroom. Each of the bathrooms are designed with a different motif. Then we go upstairs where we discover the Zen-Time zone.

The Zen-Time zone is designed for ultimate relaxation. There is a single jacuzzi, a second double jet jacuzzi, a yoga and fitness space, a hydro-massage shower, a sauna and of course a bathroom with toilet and wash basin. This leads onto the open plan master bedroom on the top floor with breathtaking views. The king-size bed is positioned in the middle of a parquet floor, an island of calm after spending an hour in Zen-Time.

This Villa is located on its own grounds but just a short stroll to the sandy and most lovely Cap Roig beach. There is a beach bar and boat hire and overlooking this idyllic heaven is Pepe's chiringuito, a seafood restaurant that serves the best sardines and cockles on the Mediterranean. Then just 50 metres from the villa is Vanessa's Pizzeria, where great pizza, salads and steaks are served under the olive trees. Nearby by is also Les Oliveres Hotel and Spa resort although if you decide to rent Carpe Diem, you will have your own spa resort at home.

Why did we call this amazing property Carpe Diem. Because every now and again you have to seize the moment and turn it into an unforgettable expereince.

And also do not forget you are right beside the Ebro delta, a Natural Park protected by Unesco and the second biggest rice producing area in Spain. No surprize that the local restaurants In L'Ampolla do amazing paella and rice dishes. In fact L'Ampolla is famed throughout the province as a gourmet destination.

Carpe Diem is managed by Catalan Ways and we have our offices in the village. We are here to make sure your holiday is a memorable one. We arrange activities such as cycle trips through breathtaking countryside, kayaking on the river Ebro, water sports and lots more so all in all, it makes for a holiday to remember. Other notable activities in the area is the world famous Porteaventura Park and Aquapolis with its spectacular Dolphin show.

Carpe Diem. Seize the day and come and holiday with us in L'Ampolla.

Carpe Diem - seize the perfect holiday!!

Carpe Diem - seize the moment!!

perfect holidays

We were a family of 6 of different age and everybody was extremely happy. The house is fully equipped, clean, comfortable and so very relaxing to stay in. A car is necessary to reach 'Ampolla. Raissa and Adrian were extraordinary. Villa is very close to the beach. Raissa and Adrian helped us a lot and contacting them was very easy. Thank you very much for making our holidays really fantastic.

Amazing

We were the family of 7 of different age (my husband and me, our daughter 14 y.o., son 8y.o., a youngest one 10 months, and my parents 76 years old) and everybody was extremely happy. The place, the villa, all those people especially Eva and Adrian were extraordinary. Villa is very close to the beach, clean, comfortable, with many utensils. Eva and Adrian helped a lot with every minor issue even not in connection with the villa. Thank you guys for making our holiday absolutely fantastic.
Owner comment

Carpe Diem

We had a lovely stay in an amazing Villa. The website pictures only gives a taste of what this property offers. Luxury, Space, Privacy and excellent facilities all a short 200 meters from a very safe and picturesque beach. Catalan ways are excellent hosts and could not have done more for us from organising trips, helping with car hire even down to last minute printing of boarding passes. I would recommend Eva and Adrian there to anyone booking a holiday.
Owner comment
HI Andrew,I think you must have had the busiest holiday of anyone of our many guests. Hiring yachts, going canyoning, booking restaurants and taxis and bike trips and theme parks!!! But I know you had a great time for your (can't mention the age!!) BIRTHDAY.All the best,Eva
