The weather was great, so lovely hot days, which certainly helped. We were staying with our toddler – so the self contained garden was perfect for him to be able to play safely. The stair gates, travel cot and high chair all worked well for us also, which helped to make for a more relaxing time. Air-con allowed us to control the room temp, so he could sleep well, which really helped. The property was lovely and clean, well maintained, had everything we needed down to playing cards, games and books etc. Everything ran smoothly with check in and Check out and Angie met us and showed us round which worked well. The welcome pack of milk, butter, bread, wine etc. was a god send as we arrived late Sat so were set well for breakfast prior to finding shops on Sun. To note shops were shut Sun pm, and we didn't get enough shopping sorted Sun am to stock ourselves up properly, so Mon am was then quite busy. The pool directly across from the apartment was perfect for size and proximity, with a little paddling pool for the children as well as decent pool for swimming. It was very quiet and often we were the only ones in it. Local amenities and beaches were well within walking distance - thou we found finding highchairs in many of the restaurants difficult and the evening opening times of 7pm didn't work so well for eating out with toddlers. We took a few trips out slightly further afield to some lovely towns/villages with much more of a traditional french feel and charm which we enjoyed, as the immediate area is very much a holiday resort spot. A couple of our faves to visit were Collioure and Leucate.
