We received a very warm welcome from Amanda, accompanied by a refreshing glass of chilled wine for the adults, and home made lemonade for the children. She had prepared a starter food package for us, as we arrived late in the evening, and the house was immaculate from top to bottom. Imaginative decoration in tandem with all practical necessities ensured that we felt completely relaxed within minutes of our arrival, and even managed a midnight swim in the charming pool before bedtime ! Given that our 6 children are aged from 6 to 14, we were worried that they might become bored in such a tranquil environment, but the wide range of local activities, such as the marvellous markets and child friendly restaurants, as well as Amanda`s surprise treasure hunt for the children (!!) ensured a busy and fulfilling programme, interrupted by delicious local produce and excellent local wines. We can`t wait to go and stay again !

He made it clear that he and Kate were available at any time to answer any questions we might have during our stay. We found the apartment to be quite spacious, bright, comfortable and clean. We felt that we were living in the real France as the apartment is in a normal residential block with plenty of everyday noise from children, interesting cooking smells etc. We found Perpignan to be an excellent place to stay as it is the hub for the local very cheap public transport system. We made good use of the 1 euro bus service for trips to Collioure, Céret and Argelès. We also enjoyed visiting the Palais de Rois de Majorque in Perpignan. Each day we returned happily to the apartment and relaxed with the air con cooling us. We then made our way into town to eat - it is a pleasant walk into the centre and there are many good restaurants. So all in all, a very pleasant stay and many thanks to Stewart and Kate.

One family with small children had a whole area almost to itself. The back area accommodated another big family in 3 different rooms, granting both privacy and proximity. At the end of the garden, a wooden chalet offered a cozy shelter from noise to late sleepers. Beyond structure, the villa was very well equipped with everything you could reasonably need - washing machines, dishwasher, microwave, ovens, fridges, TVs, DVD players, BBQ set, ping-pong … Some extra stuff then (sauna, Jacuzzi, swimming pool) went a step forward. But what really made the difference was that the owner, living nearby, was very discreet, though always ready to answer our requests. Thanks Magali. Our group of 4 families, living in different countries and meeting on holiday, did find a nice and comfortable place to share. The position of the villa then improved its value: Barcelona at 2-hour drive, Carcassonne 1, Narbonne half an hour, Perpignan close-by... With 4 mountain-bikers in the group, the eastern Pyrenees made the rest.
