Villa Saureto: 3-bedroomed semi-detached villa with Wi-Fi, located in French coastal AOC wine village of Fitou. Extensive sandy beaches of the Mediterranean within 10-15 minutes drive, and wild, rugged, semi-mountainous terrain 'on the doorstep'.
Residents' pool complex ( 2 pools + toddlers' pool). One pool is heated in April, May, June, September and October.
Satellite and internet TV with UK, French and other European channels.
Sony DVD/CD music system with USB input. Selection of DVDs provided.
The air-conditioning is integral to the construction of the villa and is therefore silent (no noisy bolt-on units or fans). It can be used for cooling or heating, and has individual room controls in the lounge-diner and bedrooms.
Sea-view terraces for al-fresco dining on two sides of the villa with gas BBQ. A fenced, irrigated Mediterranean garden at the rear of the property suitable for sunbathing, with rockery and shrubs.
Adjacent to vineyards and surrounded by the protected environment of the Languedoc-Roussillon 'garrigue', with spectacular panoramic views. The area, forming part of the vast Regional Natural Park of Narbonne in the Mediterranean, is within easy reach of the Pyrénées and has more days of sunshine, on average, than anywhere else in France.
The villa is 1km from the centre of the village, its Xth-century chateau and many wine 'caves'. Several delightful and affordable restaurants within walking distance.
This is 'Cathar country', on the border of Northern Catalonia; the scene of many historic wars between France and Spain, and conflicts between the Cathars and Catholics. The ancient Spanish border fort at Salses (now French) is just a 10-15 minutes drive to the south, and the current border about 35-40 minutes.
This exciting, rocky and environmentally-protected Mediterranean coastal region of France provides for a wide range of leisure activities and cultural holiday pursuits. Wind/Kite-surfing is particularly popular in the area. Bicycles can be hired in Port Leucate and La Franqui, 10-15 minutes drive. Storage space available for bicycles in garage
Bed linen, towels (exc. pool/beach towels), and normal cleaning are included in the prices. The usual changeover day is Saturday, although there may be some flexibility during off-peak periods.
