About Charles PRESTON
My family has been lucky enough to have a property in France for 22 years; our first property. a village house in Burgundy, cost about half the price of a conservatory addition in UK. As a young family we spent our holidays under canvas in all areas of this beautiful country(coming from Yorkshire I know what beautiful countryside is) and when the children began to lead their own lives we fulfilled our dream of owning a small piece of France. After 17 years we decided to move further south to more sunny weather and to a small town which offered more facilities as we got older. I still miss my village house every day. We now have a house in the Quillan, in the Pyrenees and also managed to scrape together enough to buy our wonderful 'pied a terre' on the Med coast, about 75 mins away.
When in England we live at the apex of a triangle of Lincoln, Leicestershsire and Nottingham. We spend some of the summer in Quillan but visit France at other times of the year and this is when we use our apartment out of season,
I am a retired schoolteacher and as my husband's work is in computer software he can conduct his business pretty well any where in the world thanks to digital technology so he has no need to retire in order to spend more time in France.
Why Charles PRESTON chose Canet-Plage
When we were looking to move further south from Burgundy we rented an apartment in Canet to look at houses on the coast but found them too expensive for a second home. However we just fell in love with the town and when we were in a position to buy a small apartment we did not consider any other place. OK, it is in a resort but that is where many people want to have two weeks holiday in the sun, with glorious beaches,crystal sea,shops and entertainment. Canet is cool and sophisticated and is a one euro bus ride away from Perpignan which is also cool and sophisticated.
What makes this apartment unique
The apartment we rented on our property search was in the town centre which is fine but one of our walks took us to the marina and we fell in love with its beauty. We looked at a number of apartments but our price range was limited and finally we had to choose between a private parking space or a bedroom. I just couldn't see anyone wanting to sleep in the same room as their children, friends or in-laws so we chose our one bed-roomed flat (with wardrobe) to sleep 4 people in comfort.There is always somewhere to park but you can never add an extra room in a limited area. We also have a kitchen which is completely separate from the living area
This is a small apartment block and many of the apartments are residential and so we see the same people each year.
But what I really love is the view of the marina with no road noise!!
