The villa is in a beautiful location with views over Ceret and the mountains beyond. The apartment overlooks the lovely garden which is terraced down to the stream below and the large pool is surrounded by flowers and butterflies. We never tired of gazing at the view from our patio and watching the birds, butterflies and, at dusk, bats dart around the trees.
There is so much to see in the area and something to suit everyone-from medieval villages and mountains to sandy beaches and serious shopping. Ceret has one of the best weekly markets around, an excellent art museum and some wonderful cafes and restaurants. A very cheap (1 euro) daily bus runs to Perpignan which has lots of great museums and historical sites to visit. Collioure is quite simply the most beautiful coastal town you will ever see although get there early as it's almost impossible to park anywhere after 9.30am.
Annie, the owner, is a wonderful host and spent time telling us about the area, lending us maps and writing out routes to those hidden gems in the Vallespir region. She ensured we had all we needed and the apartment was well supplied with local guide books. Annie's local knowledge was invaluable and she certainly looked after us very well.
From the pre-arrival communications and throughout the duration of our stay, Laurence and Olivier were fantastic hosts, helping with any queries we had. Maintaining a great balance of being there when needed but respecting your privacy - couldn’t have hoped for a more welcoming couple.
The property was clean and exactly like the pictures, situated in a private space. The gite is close to the village centre and 15 mins from the beach, we also took a day trip to Barcelona. There is plenty to do in the region but between the beach and pool at the property, we were very happy with our stay!!
