Spacious, well-equipped and lovely location

5 of 5
We spent 8 wonderful days at Casa Alta. The house is situated a short way up the hill from Ceret, giving it a beautiful outlook. It is less than 5 minutes' drive from the town or there is a path if you prefer to walk. It is an ideal location for enjoying countryside living while still being very close to the town, and well-located for exploring the wider area - whether it be towards Collioure on the coast or further up the Tech valley. The house is clean, well-appointed (particularly in the kitchen, excellent wi-fi and TV etc) and spacious. We were only 2, so the house was very spacious - it would be very comfortable for 4 adults and 1 our 2 children. We enjoyed grilling on the terrace and sampling all the wonderful local produce. Dominque and Jose responded very quickly to any questions we had. Even although their work meant they could not greet us, they arranged for their daughter to welcome us and show us around. We felt very welcome and had a great holiday.

Very happy but with a couple of suggestions

4 of 5
The kitchen and entertaining area was faultless, bags of kitchen equipment for our group, excellent space to cook and chat, the entertaining, seating and dining space was fantastic. My only thoughts are that bed linen, (including duvet covers) should be provided as well as towels. For a group of people flying in to enjoy the property it should be possible to have these provided even if there was an additional laundry fee. Also, the Homeaway app mentioned giving a Wifi code but there is no internet at the property - something that was an inconvenience. Lastly the swimming pool, although a welcome addition to any holiday had very green water, especially by the end of our week stay. I do not know if there was a problem with the filtering or chemicals but it certainly didn't look like the picture on the website. Having said all that, the size of the property, the quality of the furnishings, the garden and the privacy made for a really excellent holiday. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend the property.
