The booking process was excellent with great communication from the very helpful owner. Very comprehensive directions and property details made our preparation and stay very smooth. The villa is very clean, comfortable and very well equipped with everything you could need and more. We cook in the villa most of the time and we found it had everything we wanted to do this, both kitchen and barbecue cooking. Lots of room inside and out. We were a couple, but there is plenty of room for more. The pool is absolutely gorgeous and kept very clean. You cannot possibly ever tire of laying back in the pool and gazing up at the mountains. Idyllic. The property isn't alone as there are other properties close by, but it is still very private and secluded and the pool isn't overlooked. This is a perfect combination. We also took our springer spaniel dog with us and the villa was perfect for him. The garden was enclosed and safe, with plenty of shaded areas. The local vets in Prades was excellent for the pet passport checks and treatments before we set off back. The inside of the villa keeps cool even in the hot weather, which was great. There are so many places to visit nearby. It is perfectly placed for trips to the coast - less than an hour. We visited Collioure and Port Vendres and would highly recommend both. Less than an hour the other way, and on one of the most stunning drives you will ever take, you are in the mountains and ski resorts. We even saw snow on top of the mountains one morning we were there (yes, in August!) which was lovely to see. It is extremely well placed for shops - 10 mins drive away is Prades which has two supermarkets which are excellent, as well as other shops. Nearer still are Villefranche-de-Conflent and Eus, both of which are must see places. As is Les Orgues D'Ille. All a short drive away. I could go on. I've probably gone on too much already, but I want to get across what a wonderful place this is for a holiday. PS, we loved the frog chorus, and the crickets. It lets you know you are in the countryside. The perfect accompaniment to sitting out with a glass of wine under the stars at night, looking up at the mountains. We loved our stay here and were very sad to leave. We hope to return one day.

We walked in the mountains, skied and went to the beach, enjoying wonderful sunshine and great snow. Jujols is a very special village.
