Environmental Values

This rural masia, or traditional farmhouse, is in the Tarragona provice. It is a beautiful, quiet, ecological place with breath-taking views of the surrounding mountains. It is a space to relax in and to spend some days at one with nature.

Being ecological has long been part of our philosophy, and is one of our strong points. In fact, the house itself,,according to bioconstruction criteria was restored respecting the architecture and the original materials used. These materials used were stone, wood, ceramic tiles, natural fibres to insulate the walls, cork and double glazing etc.

Visitors to Mas de Caret will find a house with its own woods, vineyards, organic vegetable garden and orchard, as well as a farm with a pony, geese, ducks, peacocks, chickens, beehives, cats and dogs.

The main part of the farmhouse is totally sustainable and works only on solar-powered electricity, has solar panels to support the hot water system, wood-fired stoves and its own fresh-water purifyer. In addition we now have a “Parc de les Olors”, a space in which there are aromatic plants for both culinary and medicinal purposes, and where the perfumes of the plants are captivating.

We use these plants in the preparation of our organic dishes and also in the making of delicious infusions.

Our history

A dream come true, and where you are the star

In 1988 we decided to make our dream of living a healthy and ecological life come true, and to leave the town of Reus to go to live in the mountains with our then 2 year-old daughter, Roella.

We bought the ruins of Mas de Caret, and started the long, difficult task of cleaning and restoring the masia (farmhouse). Teresa´father, who is from France, helped us a lot during this process. We did heavy out-door work, building a stone storage unit, the swimming pool area, the chicken run, the fresh-water swimming pool and much more.

At the begining 1998 we decided to convert Mas de Caret into a Rural Tourism destination. The work started in Febuary and thanks to our previous experience, professional expertise and the help of friends, the project was realised, making a dream come true. The creation of the masia (farmhouse) means that everyone who wants to can experience a welcoming stay in a peaceful environment, at one with nature .
