Very well equipped villa with a light and airy feel. Good facilities - heated pool, covered terrace so you can eat al fresco even when it's raining, TV, reliable internet, modern kitchen. The delightful owners, Adrian and Pauline, are on hand if you need anything, but otherwise just let you get on and enjoy your holiday. Lots to see and do in the area, whether you're a walker, history buff, wine enthusiast or culture vulture. Nice beaches are not too far away either. We couldn't ask for more and really enjoyed our week-long stay.

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.
