Beautiful mountain escape with good sized pool

5 of 5
Beautiful location with a stunning view over the valley. It was a very peaceful place. We enjoyed 2 weeks there in August and visited places both in France and Catalonia. Ceret was beautiful and the beach was not far away. The road down the mountain into France was narrow and you had to take it slowly. The road into Spain starts as a dirt track then turns into a really well tarmac wide road. Roger and Maribel were very accommodating and easy to communicate with. From our first contact with them, their response was very quick on all occasions. They answered all our questions and made us feel very welcome at their house. Being so high up the mountains, the evenings were pleasantly cool so we had no problem sleeping at night. The pool was a good size but maybe not that suitable for non-swimming children as there was only one main step down and no shallow end - but great for adults and confident child swimmers. Lots of activities at the house, including table tennis and billiards. The internet was slow (but to be expected due to the lovely location) but useful to look up a few things and book tickets to things like the Dali Museum, which is close by and well worth a visit. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Roger and Maribel for their hospitality and look forward to returning to their house in the future.

Great house perfect locstion

5 of 5
Two week stay in a house perfect for our needs, loads of info prior to stay. Great pool, kitchen full of equipment to make easy meals (local big supermarkets easily reached by car) Lovely outdoor seating areas for breakfast and late evening meals. Wide choice of TV channels and WiFi for the teenager. Local area - we didn't get a chance to see everything, but Great Lake up the road where we all did water inflatables and swam in the lake. The beach at Argeles is perfect. We also visited other swimming lakes and the Waterpark at St Cyprian. Market in Ceret on a Saturday was amazing, we stayed all day! My husband and I are keen cyclists and loads of beautiful routes if you don't mind hills! We spent lots of time just sitting round the pool, a truely relaxing holiday. Thank you Vanessa , we hope to return again in the future.
