The access to shops and restaurants was great and we loved sitting on the spacious balcony for breakfast and in the evening. The apartment is cosy for 4 large people but the beds comfortable and there was everything we needed (including helpfully a beach chair and mats and the two fans very useful as it was super hot!). We loved being in the residence with super large pool table tennis and court for volley ball for our teenage boys.....Thank you

                                                                                                      What a great find! This comfortable, modern, easy-care villa was all we hoped for, and more! The owner, Carmen, was very helpful (the WiFi decided not to work just as we arrived & she did everything she could to ensure it was sorted out as soon as possible!). There were fans provided for the lounge and the bedrooms - which made sleeping much easier! The beds were very comfortable, with plenty of cupboard space in the rooms. There are two bathrooms: an "en suite" and a main bathroom - neither of which has a WC: the single WC is centrally situated in the main hallway. The décor is stylish and unfussy. You step outside from the open plan lounge/dining/kitchen area onto the shaded patio with in-built barbecue, which is fantastic for al-fresco dining. The kitchen hob uses bottled gas - we weren't aware we had to turn this on at the bottle in the cupboard first - and is lit using matches. Once this was established, we had no problems with cooking. The garden, which is on three sides of the house, has lawn to the side & back of the house, plus a small patio area at the back, with the main bedroom French Windows opening onto this. Beautiful high Oleander bushes in full flower formed a fragrant hedge around the property, with a fragrant creeping white jasmine climbing up the side of the barbecue chimney at the front of the house. The Pool was excellent: quite warm, so not too much of a shock to the system first thing in the morning; it is surrounded by fencing with a child-proof gate with no access to children unless allowed by an adult. The quiet ambience of the house & garden are enhanced by views of the Pyrenees from the patio. The house is situated on a newish development on the outskirts of Alénya: which could be a little confusing. A map of the village from the Tabac (a few minutes walk away - which is also a "Dépôt de Pain" for your breakfast Baguette) allowed us to find our way easily to the centre and out to the beaches etc. The village centre is an 8-10 minute walk, with a wonderful Bistro (Tapas Bar), a Pizza Bar and a takeaway Pizzeria, as well as a Wine Bar (Cave) which has wine-tastings every Sunday morning throughout the summer. There is a bakery opposite the Town Hall (and others elsewhere further on in the village towards Canet) as well as a very useful Spar Shop which opens on a Sunday evening from 17:30- 21:00 for those last-minute forgotten essentials. There is also an ATM at the Post Office next door. We'd love a return visit!
