During a stay at Mas de Mingall you are in the mountains, and only 10 kilometers from the Mediterranean sea. The nearest village, L'Ametlla de Mar, is well known for its many beautiful small coves, and natural beaches with crystalline water. Calas as they are called. Even in high season these beaches remain quiet and a bit undiscovered.
All year round this is a good base to those who like to put on their walking shoes. Stay close and hike in the mountains in our backyard. Or pick a trail in the area along the coast line, through nature, spectacular landscapes and historical paths. The GR connects L'Ametlla de Mar to L' Almadrava. We have put our favorite hikes on Wikiloc.
Rent a bike and cycle the Via Verde, a former railway track that is now open to people to walk or ride, for example from Horta de Sant Joan to Xerta. This ride takes you through 40 (!) tunnels and over bridges, mountains and wine areas.
The Ebro Delta Natural Park is within reach and a true paradise for bird lovers.
In the mountains there are many fine wine estates to visit. Priorat, Terra Alta just to name a few.

Mas de Mingall used to be a large olive farm. When you wander through the terrain around the house you will see the many well preserved old terraces with their beautiful handmade stone walls.
We are maintaining the terrain and pruning the olive trees, so that in the year to come we can produce Mas de Mingall 'extra virgin' ecological olive oil!
There are also many old carob trees. This is a special tree known for its positive energy and for its seeds that were once used to measure the weight of diamonds. Nowadays the powdered carob beans are known for their high nutritional value and can be found in health stores as 'superfood'. We collect the beans and bring them to the cooperative.
“ I wanted to be offline, views, physical challenges, good food, good wines, a great bed and good vibes.
I got it all. And more."
“ Our family spend two weeks at Mas de Mingall and we had a great time. We went to the small beaches nearby and also spend days before our tent, cooking, playing cards, being together. Our children loved to play with the chicken and cats and they didn't miss the wifi for a bit!"
"This Magical Mingall retreat was what I needed I realized when I was here. I slept so well and the meals were delicious.
I never had done any yoga but I like it. Thank you for taking good care of me!
