We arrived in the dark - so to wake up to that stunning view in the morning was amazing. There were 12 of us, 7 adults and 5 children and there more than enough space. Plenty of room for us to sit around all the tables, both in and out. The layout was as listed and clean and well maintained, although the villa is slightly more up to date than the apartment.There are rather a few stairs, which was good exercise after all the lovely local cheese and wine but some may struggle with them. Adults and children loved the pool, so much so that we hardly left the villa - great that the pool had gazeboeetc for some shade. Table tennis and mountain bikes got used well too. The village, Arles surles tech, was very handy to walk to for the shops - Spar, butchers, bakers etc and the restaurants were good, altough not open very late as we discovered on our first night! Bigger supermarkets were about 20 mins away. John was very helpful and easily contactable with any queries we did have. We had a great time and would love to go back.

The owners of the villa made booking very easy and provided loads of info and very good travel directions. The property is clean and well maintained. The kitchen is large and has all the facilities that you could expect.The lounge and dining area are also large with very comfortable furniture. If you do have the odd rain storm then the TV with it's multitude of channels is great. The three bedrooms are comfortable with loads of wardrobe space etc and the new shower room is beautiful. Outside the Al-Fresco dining area is very good as is the BBQ area, sitting under the fairy lights in the evening with a glass of wine as the sun goes down is magical. The gardens are well maintained just wish I was there when the grapes are ripe. The heated swimming pool was fantastic, early morning and late evening swims are a must. The area is quiet which is ideal for a relaxing day by the pool. There are very good restaurants in Ceret and Maureillas and Ceret has large supermarkets and is a wonderful town to stroll in the evening. The med is only 20 min drive away and the port of Collioure is a beautiful place to visit. Spain is only 7km away and there are a number of small fishing ports and hidden coves and beaches all within easy reach. We are a party of 6 adults and a 7 month old infant, we had a fantastic time and all felt at home in this super place, we will be back in the not to distant future.
