This is a spacious and pretty villa which is located in a tranquil location surrounded by pine-clad Pyrénéean mountains, vineyards and cherry orchards. There is a lovely, large, Mediterranean-style, secluded garden with a private, heated, safety-fenced pool surrounded by a its own pretty, landscaped tiled area. The living accommodation leads out to a sweeping sunny terrace at the back where you can sunbathe all day if you like and eat and drink under a fairy-lit gazebo in the evenings.
The living area is open plan covering a large area providing airy and spacious accommodation and is divided into three sections. The living room is comfortably and stylishly furnished with ample seating and has a large, flat-screen television with internet connection to all major channels, both British and other major language programmes including Sky and BT Sports, plus a DVD/CD player and radio. There are patio doors from the living room leading out onto the wide garden terrace which is shaded by sun parasols for sunbathing in both summer and a warm winter's day (happens!). There is a large fitted and airy modern kitchen with a modern eating area which is well stocked with every appliance you will need for cooking if you want to that is... French doors lead out from this area on to a sheltered, fairy- lit gazebo for outdoor eating and drinking at lunchtime and in the long balmy summer evenings.
There is a brand new, modern gas bbq unit complete with burners, sink & table top directly opposite this terrace eating area with also another marble table, sink and tiled flooring. (photo not yet available as only just installed). Off the kitchen is a utility area housing the large fridge/freezer with ice machine, washing machine and tumble drier and a shower room with rain-forest shower head (wonderful!), basin and toilet.
The terrace runs all along the full length of the back of the house right up to the safety-fenced off pool terrace which sits along the side of the house in its own area. Both the garden and pool terrace are blessed with sun all day long until well into the evening when you can enjoy a welcome aperitif catching the last of the warm rays beside the pool. The pool is large and heated, furnished with sunbeds and parasols, and has a stepped end leading to a depth of 1.5 metres. At one end is a round dining table and chairs under a shady parasol, and at the other is a marble table, bench and chairs so you can sit and eat and enjoy your morning coffee or your evening apéro. There are mountain views all around and it is wonderful to watch the changing light of the wide, Mediterranean sky. The pool is kept in perfect order by Franck, the guardian of the house who passes by to clean it often during the week though he will always respect your privacy. The large garden encircles the whole house and is filled with flowering bushes and fruit trees - an ideal place for maximum peace and relaxation where you can watch the swallows swoop down to drink in the pool and sit and listen to the lovely birdsong. It is truly magical.
The bedroom area is reached by a middle passage-way to the other side of the house tucked well away from the living area. There are three double bedrooms, two with double beds and one with twin beds, all pleasantly and comfortably furnished with fitted wardrobes and drawers. In the twin-bedded room there are also two additional folding beds. The main bedroom has French doors leading out on to the garden terrace so you can get up in the morning and jump straight into the pool for a wake-up swim. The other two bedrooms have large, double windows looking out over the pool at the side and the garden at the front. We have recently (Winter 2016) installed a splendid brand new bathroom with double sink and double shower. There is a separate toilet room immediately next to the bathroom which has also been re-tiled. The whole of the house is beautifully tiled throughout with colourful rugs and pictures in every room.
The whole house is adorned with pictures, wall-lights and soft lighting, silk flowers and ornaments to provide a homely feel. There are fans in every room of the house but the house stays cool in summer as it is incredibly well insulated being only 13 years old, so it is cool in the summer and lovely and warm in the winter as well due to the thick walls and insulation. The house is centrally heated and very snug in the winter when the nights can get very cold, although the days can be pleasantly warm, even allowing some outdoor eating at lunchtime.
Sheets and towels are provided, as well as beach towels. We can assure you that you will have a wonderfully comfortable stay as we have tried to cater for your every need as we have for ours! The house has a lovely, welcoming feel as we have made it our home and we would like to feel that you will feel also 'at home' there.
