Holidaying at Mother's Garden was my post-retirement treat to myself ... and what a treat it was! The accommodation itself is excellent - spacious, well-equipped and traditionally furnished. The outside areas are superb too - a sizeable pool with pretty gardens and lovely views over the meadow to the hills beyond. Martin and Maggie are delightful hosts - eager to talk about their life and the region and to make sure your every need is fulfilled.
The Priorat is a truly beautiful region. We visited in June when wild flowers were abundant and daytime temperatures were not too hot. There were plenty of "wow" moments on our travels through the area including visits to Porrera, Gratallops, Els Guiamets, Capcanes to name but a few. We took the train to Barcelona for a day trip and drove to Tarragona on another occasion. Reus is another beautiful town/city within easy reach.
Marca itself is a pretty little village and Falset is able to fulfil most needs on the shopping front, including its delightful market on Tuesdays.
My husband and I would love to return to Mother's Garden. Will we? We're not sure because we don't want to spoil the memories of this year's fantastic 2 week holiday - our best ever - but there are still many more places to visit in the area so we could certainly fill another 2 weeks while staying in such a beautiful location.
