Almost perfection

4 of 5
We had a wonderful week in your villa. It was very comfortable, and could be kept cool even in the very hot weather we had. The pool was a boon - great way to cool off. We loved the Fuilla/Sahorre valley, and the great walks all around. We had a pleasant meal at Les Mines in Sahorre one evening. Highlight of the week: a drive to Col de Mantet and walked on up from there. Views!! It's a beautiful peaceful spot, with the one exception being the night-time frog choir. Finally of course, Canigou. Difficult to drag ourselves away from the ever-changing glorious mountain views.
