Had a great time, fabulous weather for late October! Lots of hot water and a comfy bed. Spacious with a rooftop terrace, Very rustic .Phillipe and his wife are very welcoming.The only downside for us was the 2 sets of church bells that chime on the hour all night.Very cheap bus fares only 1 euro per journey and good walks to the next villages.
The villa was lovely, well maintained and equipped and very clean. Lots of information supplied by Angela in advance. The villa had everything we needed for a great family holiday. We stayed for 2 weeks as a family of 4 with 4 additional family members joining for the second week. Plenty of space for all. The property in in lovely gardens and has a brilliant pool area so whether you want sun or shade you are spoiled for choice. The villa is a little further from Arles than we'd understood but proved to be a decent morning run or cycle to the town for the bakery run. Arles itself seemed typically french - quiet! The few restaurants in Arles did not seem appealing so we headed to nearby Amelie les Bains where there was more choice and a nice square of cafes. The scenery is stunning and there were enough activities to keep restless teenage boys happy. Local Gorges de la Fer is a nice cooling walk for a hot afternoon and an easy walk from the villa. We did Canyoning from Ceret with Oxygen Adventure which was brilliant. Also recommend Buggy Ride 66 further away in Ille-sur-Têt - Amazing tracks and views, a great way to see the area. We also ventured further away to Les Angles to use the gondola uplift for mountain biking - great fun but brutal. Plenty of bike hire shops saves breaking your own. After a lot of searching we did find some local marked rides from Arles (search Sud Canigou VTT) which were brilliant. Would certainly recommend the villa.
