We understand that for some individuals having a strange carer is a challenge, however we ensure that you have the best possible care during your stay with us. If you wish to bring your own carer please do so, they are most welcome, we have discounts available for carers when accompanying you.

Your family is also most welcome to come and have their holidays with you, we will willingly take you out on independent day trips.

We have numerous years of experience caring for people with disabilities. On our farm you are welcome to help care for all our animals, Pigs, Chickens, Ducks, Geese, Cats and Dogs, or you can have a splash around in our pool, play table tennis, have a game of pool or a game of football.

Perhaps you prefer to play board games like monopoly, play the Wii, watch tv, surf the net, or do some baking. We have BBQ's several times a week and even have a Pizza oven for you to make your very own Pizza from scratch!!

About Finca Francis, our six bedroom renovated farmhouse...


There is a large kitchen, lounge area, games area (including pool table, dart board, computer games, board games etc). There are currently 3 double bedrooms available for rental (we occupy the other 3 bedrooms) and the 3 bedrooms share 1 large bathroom. There is also another shower room available for use.

2 of the bedrooms are situated upstairs and are away from the main living area. The other bedroom is on the ground floor situated near the games room. All are bright and airy rooms with double beds. All the windows have mosquito nets on them and there are fans in every room for the warm summer nights.

There is a separate utility room with a large washing machine.

For the colder weather we have wood burning estufas which keep the place lovely and warm.

Outside Area


We  have an out of the ground swimming pool 8 x 4m ideal for cooling off in the heat of the day. There are sun loungers available. One of our favorite things to do on a hot afternoon is to hide from the sun in a shady hammock, hung from our two hundred year old olive tree. This majestic tree offers deep shade, peace and time for contemplation.

*All the accommodation is cleaned on a daily basis and if there is anything that you require please ask.

43513, Rasquera,
Tarragona,
Spain.

Costa Daurada is a coastal region at the southern tip of Catalonia. Its capital is Tarragona and it is divided into six counties with a total of 131 towns. With an area of 2,999 square kilometres, it forms, along with Terres de l'Ebre, the province of Tarragona, which, along with Lleida, Girona and Barcelona, is one of the four provinces of Catalonia. Catalonia, which borders with France to the north on the other side of the Pyrenees, the Community of Valencia to the south and Aragon to the west, is one of the 17 autonomous regions of Spain, a country in the southwestern Europe.

Thanks to this enviable location, Costa Dorada is home to a fabulously varied geography, ranging from multiple mountain chains to a shore washed by the Mediterranean. 

Costa Daurada, literally, the Golden Coast, takes its name from the colour of its sand when the sun is shining. At such times, its beaches are reminiscent of gold. Of course, gold is hardly the only colour to be found in the land. The region's inland areas are home to the full spectrum of greens and browns, with grasses, leaves and trees, especially pines. In contrast, the coastal regions are dominated by the spectacular blue of the sea, which offers a pleasant contrast with the bright glow of the sand and the orange-tinged light of the setting sun.  


Prices start from £200 for 1 week
