Beautiful mountain retreat with fun in the pool action with our boys!

5 of 5
The villa was in an amazing location half way up the side of a valley with mountain views all round. Villa spotless and very well equipped. As previous reviewers have said the photos don't do the property justice as it was much more spacious than expected and lovely big living room with dining table (although ate outside every day/evening) and 2 bedrooms (red and blue!) were huge and the purple bedroom perfectly adequate for 2 twins. Kitchen had everything needed for cooking and plenty of plates/cups/glasses for a big party as well as utilised the picnic box, plastic cutlery plates and ice blocks - thank you! Pool was perfect size for 2 boys - aged 4 and 6 with safe steps in and big enough for jumping in and quick laps. Plenty of outside furniture available. Liz Jenkins, the owner, provided lots of information prior to the stay on the area and plenty of info in the villa when you arrive - always answered promptly if had queries or needed anything whilst we were away. Laurent - the infamous pool man - was lovely and always nearby if needed anything. Had fun chatting in our best franglais! Lovely stroll through the sleepy, quiet village to the cafe to get baguettes and chocolate croissants every morning. Not a lot of activity there and very basic looking inside (think had only just reopened) but always at least one local having their morning coffee!. Sitting on the balcony more amazing views all round. Daily activity was pool in morning, drive up a mountain over hotter mid-day lunchtime, then back to the pool for more swimming after 3. Favourite drive was to Mantet - idyllic, mountain village with expansive views and pastures at the top of the mountain - beautiful drive from valley bottom to the top. Only small point could perhaps be improved slightly was the exterior of the house could perhaps do with a lick of paint and a bit of a freshen up but had no impact on the holiday or on our enjoyment but if giving an honest review this was the only thing we remarked on. Fab holiday thank you Liz and John

Home away from home

5 of 5
We had a great 3 weeks holiday together with our dogs. It was great to have a garden completely fenched as well as the pool with no access for the dogs. The terrace was great - sitting there we could overlook the lovely town of Maureillas which is at walking distance ! In the evening it was great looking at the sunset and later at all the lights shining in the mountains. House is well equipped; pool kept very clean 2x a week by Bob, the very nice housekeeper who had wonderful tips for sightseeing and restaurants. All in all a place we could definitely recommend.
