                                                              Loved the property - comfortable and well maintained. Everything my family could ask for. Great views and a lovely private pool. Will definitely be returning this summer.

                                                              Beautiful, Relaxing Stay in a Private Villa

                                                              We stayed at Roussillion Farmhouse for the month of November this year. We had a fabulous time. Although there are other houses on the property, you feel like you are in your own private oasis. The backyard is reserved for you and your guests, and the hedges provide complete privacy. The pool is great, with lots of sun chairs for relaxing with a good book. The house is lovely and very high-end. The kitchen was well-equipped. There are lots of showers, and one tub. Derek, the caretaker, was very helpful when we had questions. Paul and Annette did a great job of answering any questions we had, via email, before we arrived. The dishwasher, washing machine, free WIFI, and free calls to landlines were all wonderful additions that we might not have looked for, but very much appreciated having when it came down to it! Villelongue-dels-monts was a very nice town. The people were all very friendly. We rented bicycles and were able to bike to the next town (Laroque) where there is a great bakery, a library, and some art classes. I would recommend a car for staying at this villa. A car is very handy for driving to the beach. (The owners recommend Argeles-sur-Mer, but we preferred the beach just one town north of Argeles. St. Cyprien has lovely, fine sand on the beaches.). You are also just a 10 minute drive to Spain! You can take the very scenic, oceanside drive to Spain, or the quick 3-lane freeway drive. (Food and gas is less expensive in Spain.) All in all, this is a wonderful place for a relaxing stay in Southern France.

                                                              Beautiful House in beautiful setting

                                                              This is a very nice house in a lovely mountain village near the coast. It sits in the old heart of the mountain village of Montesquieu Des Alberes and retains it's old charm whilst provide modern facilities inside. The service we received from the owner was excellent, the property is well maintained, stocked and clean and the descriptions given are accurate. It's large terrace with superb views allows you to relax and eat outdoors, or stay in the cool of the house when it is too hot out. The beaches of the Pyrenees Orientale's coast are 15 minutes away by car, as well as many other places of interest if you so wish. There are plenty of walks in the surrounding hills right on your doorstep, as well as being a popular location for cyclists. The lake at St. Jean pla de Corts, 15 minutes away, is great for families, with high ropes courses, pedalos, kayaks and swimming etc. Barcelona is within easy reach and if flying, worth considering as an arrival destination.
