It is everything the website says and more. Julie and Andy were so helpful, both before and during our visit. The village has excellent facilities for immediate needs and is close to fantastic villages, towns, coastline and countryside as well as bigger shopping facilities. Daily walks through the vineyards and fields and friendly neighbours in the cul-de-sac all added to the experience. We were sad to leave and will definitely return to explore the area more and enjoy the peace of the village and its surroundings. Thank you Julie and Andy for making our holiday so enjoyable.

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
