About Rose Connaughton

We live in the UK (Bristol) but enjoy spending as much time as possible in our little corner of the South West of France - Fitou. We are both working but look forward to the day when we can spend more time there. We never dreamed that we would one day own a house with a pool and can't quite believe its ours!

Rose Connaughton purchased this villa in 2005

Why Rose Connaughton chose Fitou

We have been coming to Fitou for 11 years and previously owned another property there so are very familiar with the area. Fitou is easily accessible from a number of different airports, Perpignan, Carcassonne, Beziers, Girona or Toulouse. From Fitou you can enjoy both the French way of life and northern Spain as the border is only about 40 mins away.

What makes this villa unique

The views! The property overlooks the L'Etang (lagoon) and Leucate and is home to flamingoes and other wildlife. The villa is convenient for the beach, mountains and for sightseeing. We love the 'blue sky' days, particularly in winter when we can leave behind the rain and grey clouds in Bristol. Life is at a completely different pace in Fitou. Fitou also has some lovely restaurants in the village, each with their own unique atmosphere.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Cowens (Jun 2014)

Hi Ros, I wanted to thank you on behalf of all of us for a brilliant week in Fitou. The villa worked brilliantly , Ian was really helpful and we loved the area. The children used the pool constantly and the whole set-up worked well for a wide range of ages and interests. Fitou village was very welcoming, from the tabac to the caves and the the restaurants. We only used two restaurants, as we mostly cooked for ourselves, but my daughter and partner thought that Cave D'Agnee delivered a really memorable meal and we all had an extended and great lunch at Vidal. We also discovered the oyster shacks at Port Leucate, which were brilliant.

Ashton 10/13

We rented the villa during October half term and it ticked all our boxes. We wanted space, style and a heated pool for two aquatic children. Although the weather wasn't hot, it was comfortable to sit by the pool & the lovely conservatory also offered shelter when the wind picked-up and the kids still played in the pool! It's ideally placed for a number of attractions including a ten minute drive to the beach, there are some lovely restaurants and a shop within walking distance. The villa has everything you need and is a real 'home from home'. Extremely helpful and friendly owners, who clearly take pride in their beautiful retreat.

Ward (Aug12)

We had a fab time, absolutely brilliant. Llyneth and I have been fortunate enough to rent holiday property across the world from South China Sea to Hawaii and your lovely house is right up at the top of the tree.In terms of feedback, not sure what to add. Facilities and the way you have equipped the villa are brilliant.

Beautiful villa, outstanding location

  • 5 of 5

We have returned from an Easter stay at Villa Panoramique having had a wonderful time in this truly luxurious villa.

The owners have certainly thought of everything for their guests.

From the lovely rooms to the outside space which gave us many options to relax alone, or join together as a family, all options were catered for. This included a large covered terrace with pre dinner seating area and a large dining table. In the morning we sat in the sun on the decking area for breakfast. Then we were able to relax by the pool.

The owners left lots of information for us which included details of the little yellow train, Sigean safari park and many other  day trip options but the villa was so nice we spent most of our time lounging around reading, swimming and of course, for research purposes sampling the local wine. When we did drag ourselves away which we were very reluctant to do, we were able to walk to the village to visit 8 separate family wineries where we could taste a number of the local Fitou wines.There were also a number of restaurants, take-away pizza and a bar.

We also visited the lovely village of Leucate about 10 mins drive away and people watched in the square – idea for morning coffee.

We could not resist a visit to the stunning town of Collioure, so beautiful with lots of cafes, restaurants and art galleries - worth the 40 min drive.

We have already booked up for next year as this was a fantastic location which we feel would be very hard to match for luxury, location and price.

Thank you for letting us have the privilege of staying at your lovely villa.

fantastic

  • 5 of 5

It was now the third time we spent a wonderful week in that lovely villa. Since our last stay in 2011 several changes were made for even more comfort such as WIFI and and a great new kitchen which is perfect for cooking with mediterranean ingredients ...

The now fully enclosed patio allows sitting up late in the evening with a good Fitou wine and early in the morning the heated pool invites you to swim before breakfest. The property managers took care of everything and were always available for questions.

We hope to come back again !!!

Pleased we chose this Villa

  • 4 of 5

We chose this Villa because it met our criteria, near restaurants, pool & space, we arrived after a long car journey at 3.30pm, my sat nav directed us on to an A road, when we saw the sign Fitou there was a silence in my group, I was sensing they we not happy, we turned right at the traffic lights & found the villa past a Spa shop & a short drive down a road. As we entered The Villa it was dark due to the shutters being down, when we opened up the villa my group was full of smiles, the villa looked great & there was a nice gesture of a bottle of wine on the table & the heated pool looked inviting. After further investigating we found that the best Restaurents were across the motor way in the other direction to were we entered Fitou. We tried 4 restaurents & were not dissapointed, if you look on trip adviser we have listed our best two. There were a lot of building work going on with 2 major roads either side of the villa but this did not detract from the wonderful 2 weeks we stayed at the Villa Panoramique, we hope to come back as the villa was the best villa we have stayed in, most of our stay we relaxed around the pool & chilled. The only reason I have not given the villa 5 stars is that I am hard to please, please try the local wine brought in Fitou high street it was great, I would recomend this villa to all but if elderly or disabled you need to be in the bedroom on the ground floor as the stairs are a bit difficult. If you would like any pictures of video please email me.

Owner's Response: We are delighted that the villa met all your expectations and that you and your family enjoyed both your time in the villa and in Fitou. The restaurants in Fitou village are all wonderful and of a very high standard so we are pleased to hear that you managed to try most of them! To answer your comments about the local building currently being undertaken: there are 9 new villas being built approximately 500 metres behind our villa but they will complete by 2015. Fortunately the pool and all the patio and decking area are at the front of the house and don’t overlook that piece of land. Also one of the wineries on the main road into Fitou is building a new cave and wine tasting centre, to add to the other numerous wineries in Fitou which excel in the local wine. All of this work should be finished by next year. We have had several disabled guests over the years and with having two of the bedrooms downstairs and a full bathroom with both shower and bath has made their stay so much easier. Everything on the ground floor is in the same level as well. We would be delighted if you made a return visit sometime in the future and look forward to welcoming you once again. Thank you for your complimentary review.

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this outstanding villa for the last 3 years with a variety of family members ranging from age 6 - 80. It is a wonderful property that is exceptionally clean and well thought out. The recent alterations to the villa have made it very light and appear even more spacious. The facilities are second to none. We have spent many holidays in France and this has been the clear favourite. Fitou in itself has a super boulangerie and a wonderful tabac. There is so much to do in the surrounding area and great eateries. We would return again without hesitation. Ian and Julie are great and will attend to any issue that may arise. There is nothing more to say than give it a try - you won't be disappointed!

excellent villa

  • 5 of 5

must admit to being a little wary of booking a private villa, but the communication before, during and after our holiday dispelled all our worries. The villa is like a home from home, everything you need and more is included. The cleanliness of the whole villa was excellent. It is in close proximity to a lovely village with just a couple of Caves! We would have no problem in booking this villa again.

Owner's Response: Thank you Liz for your lovely comments. We are really pleased that you enjoyed your stay in our villa. We understand your concerns with booking the villa and would suggest that enquirers phone us as well as emailing us if they are interested in making a booking or need further information. We have been renting the villa out for over 10 years now and have had many repeat bookings every year and hopefully we will have an opportunity to welcome you back too. As the house is also our second home we have strived to make it a ‘home from home’, for our guests as well as ourselves. We are always happy to help with information or advice for would be guests, whether its travel arrangements or sourcing the nearest hairdresser or beauty salon when we had a wedding party stay earlier this Summer! The couple who look after the house for us do a wonderful job in keeping the standard high and are happy to impart their knowledge of Fitou and the surrounding area if need be to guests.

A gem!

  • 5 of 5

One of the most comfortable and best equipped villas that we have rented in France in the past 14 years. Everything was of very high quality and in full working order. Beds were very comfortable, air con in the bedrooms a real bonus as the weather was very hot even in early June, plenty of seating both indoors and outdoors, very inviting heated pool after a day's excursion, excellent location with sea views but local shops, restaurants and wine caves within walking distance.

Rose is extremely helpful and informative and Ian, the manager, greets you on arrival and is available if needed throughout your stay.

Plenty of things to do: sandy beaches (Leucate Plage the best), go- karting, wine tasting, excursions into mountains, safari park and Dali Museum at Figueres, Spain less than an hour away. There is much to see and do for another time and would not hesitate to stay again. If you just want to relax, then this is also the place for you - just enjoy the house and pool and the local beach!
