This is our third visit to the villa which tells you all you need to know! Whilst there, we enjoyed trips to the artistic town of Céret, the beautiful coastal resort of Collioure and some of the nearer beautiful villages- all within easy reach by car and less than 30 minutes away.
With three doubles, one single and a twin, there is more than enough room for two families or a large group. Two of the doubles have French doors, making them more more accessible and giving them a private feel; one of these has a little seating area looking to the side of the mountains.
There is a very large, modern and recently installed walk-in shower and a separate WC. There is also a second more traditional bathroom with bath, shower and WC as well.
The lounge area is large and has a TV with DVD player and a gadget to access British TV, but the weather is so good in Summer we rarely used the area. There’s also a small bar area off it, stocked with games and magazines. More books can be found in the middle double bedroom. Usefully, the property has WiFi!
The kitchen that links the sitting room area (via an archway) is very modern, with a clean, stainless steel “industrial” feel. The hob has five rings and the cupboards are extremely well equipped. French windows open to the terrace that looks over the pool and beyond.
The view from the very large terrace area is what really make this property special. It takes in mountains, cities, villages and even the coast to the right. If you go through your stay without either a spectacular sunset or dramatic night-time storm, you’ll be incredibly unlucky!
The pool is very large for this type of villa. It’s cleaned twice a week and is a great asset to the property.
The owner of the villa is highly attentive. He almost always responds to quieries within 24 hours, and is eager to make guests’ stays as enjoyable as possible.
All in all, an outstanding property and extremely good value for money.
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!!
