Caroline and David were friendly, welcoming, and helpful hosts. The village was lovely and we did most of our daily food shopping using the excellent local butcher and baker stopping for a drink at the bar on our way back. Our favourite beach was at Paulilles and we mostly alternated between that and walking in the mountains with some day trips into beautiful Catalonia. Our one wet day was a good opportunity to visit the modern art gallery at Ceret. We returned home relaxed and refreshed after a memorable holiday. Thank you Caroline and David.

It is set in lovely grounds with a mountain backdrop. The description and photos are accurate and realistic; the rooms really are that large! Furnishings are colourful and fresh. The owners live in the same road and their attention to our needs went over and above the call of duty: they were delightful. Sadly, the weather was unkind to us and we did not get to sample the otherwise welcoming pool. We did, however, enjoy mountain walks, which were well sign posted and way marked. The coastal resorts are close and very attractive. In the other direction we particularly liked Ceret and its superb 20th century art museum. Definitely to be recommended.

We desperately needed a total rest. The bed was comfy. The whole atmosphere of the apartment and garden was calm and peaceful. We popped over to Spain for the day. We enjoyed the market at Ceret so much we went twice. Laroque-des-Alberes only about 5 mins drive away is a lovely place to have a drink in the evening with some beautiful views from the medieval tower in the middle. James and Caroline are great host. We had some great chats putting the world to right. We would recommend this place to stay and would Love to return if we have a chance. Thank you
