About Anders Rosenbeck

I am living with my wife and three children in Denmark approximately 20 km North of Copenhagen. I have a background as engineer and my wife is a teacher.

Anders Rosenbeck purchased this villa in 2006

Why Anders Rosenbeck chose Laroque-des-Albères

Since I was a child, I have been travelling and visiting most of the areas of France. I have also been living in the country (in Nancy) for almost half a year when I was studying. When my wife and I first visited this area of France in September 2005 we completely fell in love with the relaxed Catalan inspired atmosphere and the sunny climate.

What makes this villa unique

We had set our eyes upon buying a two story flat in Collioure but found the beautiful village by the sea too noisy to live in. When we discovered the charming village of Laroque, drove up the mountain, and saw the magnificent views to the sea for the first time we instantly changed our minds: this was where we wanted our summerhouse.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed here with larger family and where pleased with the quality of the house. Going up the hill by car from the center of the Laroque-des-alberes vilage is worth the effort. Great view and still relatively close to the seaside. Some good 'local tips' from the owner where included in the document you get when paying the rent.

Great stay, wonderful house with an amazing view

  • 5 of 5

We had two wonderful weeks in this exceptionally beautiful house and particularly enjoyed the wonderful view, the peacefulness of its location, the balcony and the pool. The house is big, spacious, with enough room for everybody and always a shadowy place if needed. We found everything very well equipped and loved the interior design particularly of the kitchen and living/dining area. We found everything as described, in very good condition, clean and well-maintained, and the owners easy to commmunicate with and very helpful. Laroque is a very charming village with some nice restaurants, perfectly located between sea and mountains, so beaches as well as hiking/rafting opportunities or the cathar castles, monasteries etc. are all easily accessible. Overall, we would certainly recommend this villa and hope to come back ourselves soon.

peace and quiet and an amazing view

  • 5 of 5

We have just come back from our third stay at Casa Vostra and it is as lovely as ever. We don't normally stay in the same place twice but this house is too nice not to return. We especially love the pool, the balcony and the amazing views and it is a great place to relax. It feels very peaceful even in the height of summer and we like being at the top of the domaine where there are not too many houses and there is usually a cool breeze. Laroque is a pretty village with good places to eat and a nice atmosphere and the surrounding area is beautiful. The house is exactly as described, there is plenty of space and everything is clean and works well - including the wifi and air conditioning. We stayed with four teenagers and three adults. The house is very well set up for a big family with lots of different spaces so you can always find somewhere quiet but there is also plenty of room for a big group to be together. We used the tennis court and big pool a lot and found they were never very busy. The owner is very helpful and easy to communicate with and I am sure we will come back.

Wonderful stay at Casa Vostra!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Casa Vostra. The property is exactly as advertised and spacious enough for our group of 3 families. We really enjoyed having the pool and the beautiful terraces to view the valley and ocean. The house was clean and well maintained. We particularly appreciated the full compliment of kitchen utensils, dishes and sharp knives for our group, so we didn't have to spend all of our time washing dishes. Overall, we had a fabulous stay. The road to the house and the driveway are not for the faint of heart or those with larger vehicles. We did find parking on the road for those that didn't get their cars in the drive. The house is also outside of the the cute town of Laroque des Alberes, which isn't really within walking distance. Certainly, one doesn't walk down for breakfast or a visit to the pub. Thus, you really need to make sure you have what you need before climbing the mountain to the house. These minor details are really just that...minor. Anders was great and easy to reach by email. The exchange between Canadian and European banking systems was complicated, but worked. Overall, I would recommend this property for anyone who wanted a quiet villa vacation in a beautiful setting.

Relaxing holidays with a great view

  • 5 of 5

Our Family very much enjoyed our vacation here. The house is great, clean and well kept. The pool was great for the children who usually went there after breakfast and again after we hit the beach. The view from the house is exceptional and makes the stay at the house something special. Event the Kids were impressed how far you could see. The location of the house between the mountains and the sea was another great attraction as we did both - hiking and going to the beach. We loved our two weeks here and we would like to return if it works out timewise. Thanks very much!
