About the property

Superb apartment for 10 with pool and mountain views in all directions

La Chataigneraie offers 3 well equipped gites along with en-suite B&B rooms in the heart of the Pyrenees. We have 2 acres of gardens to explore, with wifi, a swimming pool, gym, boules court, and breath-taking mountain views. Sahorre has a bistro and a handful of small shops whilst the famous spa town of Vernet les Bains is less than 2 miles away, with a wider selection of shops, activities and restaurants. This stunning area is steeped in culture and history with several of France’s most beautiful villages within a short drive. A paradise for sports enthusiasts with a huge range of sports and activities available nearby – from mountain biking to white water rafting – even the most active group could find a different activity for every day! If you prefer to simply relax by the pool, the area is renowned as the sunniest in France with a glorious 320 days of sunshine every year. Beautiful at any time of year, 45 minutes from either beaches or ski resorts we really offer the best of both worlds.

La Capsole is a superb self-catering apartment that takes the whole top floor of La Châtaigneraie. It is named after the mountain peak you can see from its windows and enjoys panoramic mountain views in all directions. It is fully self-contained with its own front door, separate from the rest of the house. Guests are welcome to make full use of all facilities including the swimming pool, wifi, boules, gardens and gym.

The upper terrace of La Châtaigneraie provides a private garden with a shady pergola, barbeque and table and chairs with plenty of room for 10+ people. The views from the garden are breath-taking.

La Capsole offers extremely comfortable, hi-spec, flexible accommodation with wonderful views from every window. Outside of the peak holiday period we will be happy to offer reduced prices for smaller groups. Whether you are two families, a group of friends or just a couple, La Capsole really does offer all the comforts of home but with spectacular mountain views!

About Caroline and Bob Mann

We moved to La Chataigneraie in April 2012 and now live here permanently, so we are always on hand to resolve any problems and help our guests to get the most out of their holiday. Having tired of the "rat-race" we decided to take the plunge and have an adventure in a warmer climate!

Why Caroline and Bob Mann chose Sahorre

We fell in love with La Chataigneraie from our first visit. There are simply stunning views of the mountains in all directions and it is impossible not to feel relaxed in such a peaceful and tranquil setting. We love living in a rural village, but particularly like the fact that you never feel remote or cut off. We are so close to all local amenties - less than 5 minutes to the nearest supermarket - and there is always something going on in the valley.

What makes this apartment unique

La Chataigneraie is such a unique property with hi-spec contemporary facilities combined with a beautiful rural setting. We love the village of Sahorre which has been very friendly and welcoming. We feel that this area really offers the best of all worlds. We have no immediate neighbours so have real peace and quiet, yet it is just a short walk or cycle into the village. There is so much to do in this area - it really is possible to ski in the morning and be walking on the beach in the afternoon - all within a reasonable driving distance. It only takes about 45 minutes to get to Perpignan airport and we have an excellent wifi connection so the rest of the world is only a click away!

This area is a paradise for walkers, cyclists, mountain-bikers and nature-lovers.

We have a couple of bikes for guests to use free of charge and 6 higher spec bikes for guests to hire at a reasonable rate. There are many miles of graded and sign-posted MTB trails nearby, several of which pass right by our front door!

It is a two minute walk from our garden to the trout fishing area of the river Rotja.

La Chataigneraie offers very flexible accommodation which could be adapted to suit the needs of many different groups. We have a large lounge available to groups with 5m projection screen to watch DVDs in cinema-style! Film your day's activities and share with the rest of your group in the evening! If you are a special interest group looking for accommodation, please contact us directly and we will be more than happy to discuss your requirements and will do all we can to make your holiday successful.


The nearest beach is Canet Plage about 40 miles away. There are many miles of glorious beaches to explore along the Cote Vermeille, from the sandy beaches of Le Bacares to the craggy coves between Collioure and the Spanish border. In the village we have "Sahorre Plage" - a barbecue area alongside the River Rotja - great for clambering over boulders with a rope-swing, sandy shallows and deep rock pools to dive in. The lake at Vinca also has a beach with sailing and windsurfing.


The nearest airport is Perpignan, a 40 minute drive away and well-served by both Ryanair and Flybe. Other options include Bezier (1.5 hours), Girona (1.5 hours) and Carcassonne (2 hours). For most people a car would be essential, however, it is only 8 hours by train from London St Pancras to Perpignan, followed by a local train service to Villefranche. We would be happy to arrange to collect guests plus luggage and bikes from Villefranche and this could be a good option for mountain bikers!


Vernet les Bains (1.6 miles) spa town made famous by Rudyard Kipling with a good range of shops, restaurants, petrol station and supermarket.

Villefranche de Conflent (5 miles) fortified medieval town and UNESCO world heritage site with spectacular caves and Petit Train Jaune station.

Prades (8.5 miles) larger town with twice weekly markets.

Perpignan( 36 miles)

Several of France's most beautiful villages are within a short drive, including Eus (11 miles), Mosset (11 miles) and Castelnou.

Further Details:

This area really does offer something for everyone. Vernet les Bains has a lido with water slides, tennis courts, an equestrian centre and even a casino! It is also the departure point for 4x4 jeep trips up to the Refuge des Cortalets for those wishing to climb to the summit of Mount Canigou (highest peak). There are numerous opportunities for adventures with gorge walking, aerial adventure parks, white-water-rafting and kayaking all available close by. There are many miles of marked trails for hikers and mountain bikers. Casteil Animal Park is 3 miles away - follow a mountain trail (2.5k or 3.5k) and see the animals in a natural mountain setting. There are numerous vineyards and opportunities to sample the famous Languedoc wines. There are also many spectacular historical abbeys and monastries to explore. The area offers a wealth of lovely little restaurants and bistros in which to sit and watch the world go by!
