Fantastic family holiday - amazing property, perfect pool, great location - definitely going back!

5 of 5
We had a fantastic 2 week holiday in this beautiful, stylish property in a lovely part of France, with our 4 children aged 9 - 19 and two grandparents. The villa is spacious, clean and very well equipped. Very comfortable living areas inside and an amazing pool and outdoor seating areas. Evening meals on the front terrace overlooking the amazing view and enjoying the spectacular sunsets - excellent BBQ. On the one cooler evening we enjoyed an indoor meal at the long table in the open plan dining room. Breakfasts in the perfect seating area overlooking the pool. Our children enjoyed exploring the area behind the house that stretched up the hill and into the trees. They also enjoyed the table tennis table in the garage. We didn't go out much as we made the most of the pool (great size - a shame the pool lights weren't working for evening swims) and the time to rest, and enjoyed cooking meals in the well equipped kitchen. We did a day trip to Barcelona (2 hr drive) which was perfect. It was a shame the nearest place to shop meant getting in the car, but it was easy and simple. The village is quiet with not much going on but we did discover a fantastic little bar/cafe called La Clau d'el Sol with a beautiful garden for enjoying a beer or espresso. They do simple meals and you can pick up fresh baguette in the morning if you get there in time. The only downsides of the holiday for us were how hot the bedrooms were at night (plenty of fans available but no air con) and the mosquitoes. We tried everything to deter them -windows shut, spray, oil diffusers but we were covered in bites and kept awake at night. Not sure how the locals deal with it – maybe mosquito screens at the windows would help? The other thing to be aware of is accessibility for elderly people or toddlers - lots of steps and different levels in the house and beautiful stone tiles throughout - very stylish but quite difficult for my mother with limited mobility. I was afraid of her falling and she needed to be helped with the level changes as they didn't all have handrails. The pool was not accessible for her due to the step ladder and the showers were all VERY slippery – take a rubber slip mat if you have small children as we couldn’t find one locally! Also, if you are over 6 ft, be aware that the bed in the master bedroom is short. Overall, we had an amazing holiday in a beautiful property in a fantastic location – we would LOVE to go back again! We highly recommend this property.
