Almost perfection

4 of 5
We had a wonderful week in your villa. It was very comfortable, and could be kept cool even in the very hot weather we had. The pool was a boon - great way to cool off. We loved the Fuilla/Sahorre valley, and the great walks all around. We had a pleasant meal at Les Mines in Sahorre one evening. Highlight of the week: a drive to Col de Mantet and walked on up from there. Views!! It's a beautiful peaceful spot, with the one exception being the night-time frog choir. Finally of course, Canigou. Difficult to drag ourselves away from the ever-changing glorious mountain views.

Three weeks in the mountains

4 of 5
We stayed in this lovely house for 3 weeks in March waking up to the changing views of the mountains. We walked in the mountains, skied and went to the beach, enjoying wonderful sunshine and great snow. Jujols is a very special village.
