The town of Argeles remains our favourite destination in the South West of France. We will return.

The villa itself was spotlessly clean, very spacious and with every mod con needed . The highlight has to be the pool which benefited from the sun all day and was used by everyone on a daily basis! Oh and the table tennis table was also used daily.. The area itself was ideal to visit collioure ( a must !) port Vendres, Barcelona, Certe and Argeles sur mer. The nearest village of Sorede is a very short walk away from the villa and benefit from a very welcoming bar, pizzeria as well as numerous shops from butcher to bakery and pharmacy meaning you could always top up on essentials very easily. All in all, we all had a wonderful time and were very sad to have to leave. A special mention to Julie our caretaker who was always on hand if needed and dealt with any requests very swiftly and expertely. Many thanks to Tim and Clare for letting us stay in their very special villa.
