Large well equiped villa in a perfect location to explore the Pyrenee's.

4 of 5
We enjoyed our stay in this lovingly renovated villa with it's various seating area's to avoid the heat of the sun.The 2 five star attractions of this villa are the kitchen/balcony area and the pool so a direct connection between the two via a small additional staircase would make this property just about perfect. Many thanks to Angela for her prompt reply's to my questions.

Lovely villa in beautiful surroundings

5 of 5
This is the perfect place to get away from it all - quiet and private with stunning views of the surrounding hills. Very well equipped villa with a light and airy feel. Good facilities - heated pool, covered terrace so you can eat al fresco even when it's raining, TV, reliable internet, modern kitchen. The delightful owners, Adrian and Pauline, are on hand if you need anything, but otherwise just let you get on and enjoy your holiday. Lots to see and do in the area, whether you're a walker, history buff, wine enthusiast or culture vulture. Nice beaches are not too far away either. We couldn't ask for more and really enjoyed our week-long stay.
