Why Mark Goldhawk chose Le Barcarès

We wanted a comfortable, modern, spacious seaside property in a sunny and warm part of France. Le Barcares is ideally situated for exploring the Catalan region and for wider excursions to Spain. The communication links are good and our house provides an ideal base for us and our grown up children to take family holidays in comfort.

perfect family base

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in early September and had an enjoyable time. The weather was great, so lovely hot days, which certainly helped.

We were staying with our toddler – so the self contained garden was perfect for him to be able to play safely. The stair gates, travel cot and high chair all worked well for us also, which helped to make for a more relaxing time. Air-con allowed us to control the room temp, so he could sleep well, which really helped.

The property was lovely and clean, well maintained, had everything we needed down to playing cards, games and books etc. Everything ran smoothly with check in and Check out and Angie met us and showed us round which worked well. The welcome pack of milk, butter, bread, wine etc. was a god send as we arrived late Sat so were set well for breakfast prior to finding shops on Sun. To note shops were shut Sun pm, and we didn't get enough shopping sorted Sun am to stock ourselves up properly, so Mon am was then quite busy.

The pool directly across from the apartment was perfect for size and proximity, with a little paddling pool for the children as well as decent pool for swimming. It was very quiet and often we were the only ones in it.

Local amenities and beaches were well within walking distance - thou we found finding highchairs in many of the restaurants difficult and the evening opening times of 7pm didn't work so well for eating out with toddlers.

We took a few trips out slightly further afield to some lovely towns/villages with much more of a traditional french feel and charm which we enjoyed, as the immediate area is very much a holiday resort spot. A couple of our faves to visit were Collioure and Leucate.

Fabulous week in le Bacares

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent holiday in the property. We were in contact with Mark the owner prior to our visit and we found him to be extremely helpful and incredibly accommodating. He arranged for us to be provided with an extra travel cot and also an extra stair gate at no extra costs. This really was a godsend to us travelling with 2 children under two and a half reducing our luggage load. Thank you Mark..... When we arrived we were met and shown round the house by lovely and helpful Angie. It proved to be spotlessly clean, fully equipped and perfect for our needs with a lovely touch of butter, bread, confitures and WINE. The garden was ideal for a toddler and the property was enclosed and safe. We loved the astroturf lawn and ate breakfast on the terrace each morning watching our toddler play on it with the ample toys available, paddling pool, beach toys etc. The house was as described with all mod cons and I would have no hesitation in fully recommending it to anyone. Local access was a few minutes walk away, I was literally able to pop to the supermarche when running out of the local rose and be back before my wife had finished the last glass! Locally there was plenty of places to eat and drink and the port was easy walking in 15mins max (remember we have 2 children....) I think if anything the owner may be underselling the area to keep it a secret. Beach access is as indicated and possible to just pop down for a half hour paddle and nip back when the kids get fed up, without the whole "day out charabanc" which can be the case with driving. The pool was also just across the drive and we only saw a couple of people the whole week, it was clean and well maintained. We generally like to try different places each holiday but we are pretty sure we will be asking to revisit again next year, as it really was so child friendly that we could really relax. We feel there was certainly enough for a two week stay to keep us occupied in just le bacares itself and really regretted only having one!! Of no criticism whatsoever but as an addition a BBQ for the patio would have been really nice especially for a longer stay, but we do understand that sometimes gated style complexes have restrictions and this may be the case. In summary we had a superb, relaxing and enjoyable week at the end of the season and have no hesitation in recommending this delightful house for a family holiday. Thank you Mark

Schönes, geräumiges Haus

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist sehr großzügig und bietet ausreichend Platz für eine Familie mit 2 Kindern. Besonders gut war die Nähe zum Pool, der in Sichtweite ist und von den Kindern gerne genutzt wurde. Die elektronische Ausstattung ist sehr gut (TV, DVD Player, WLAN usw.), die in der Küche könnte noch etwas besser sein. Sehr gut auch der Handtuch und Bettwäsche Service der inklusive ist. Alles im allem ein TOP Haus in einer schönen Gegend von Frankreich!

Ein für uns perfektes Ferienhaus!

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben unseren Urlaub im August 2013 mit zwei Teenagern (13 und 14 Jahre) in diesem sehr schönen und komfortablen Ferienhaus verbracht. Obwohl das Haus im Inserat schon sehr vielversprechend klang, wurden unsere Erwartungen in der Realität noch übertroffen. Bereits bei der Ankunft wurden wir von Angie sehr nett persönlich empfangen und bekamen bei einem Rundgang durch das sehr gepflegte, saubere und sehr gut (auch technisch) ausgestattete Haus (Radio, Fernseher, Video, W-Lan) alles Wissenswerte erklärt. Sehr aufmerksam fanden wir auch das liebevolle Verpflegungspaket (mit Tee, Nescafe, Milch, Wasser, Flasche Wein etc.), das wir als Willkommensgruß vorfanden.

Die Räume sind durchweg sehr großzügig geschnitten und auch so gut ausgestattet wie im Inserat beschrieben. Das Haus bietet durch seine drei großen Doppelschlafzimmer mit genügend Stauraum, einem großen Esstisch mit sechs Stühlen, einer großen Ledercouch und 2 Sesseln problemlos Platz für 6 (auch erwachsene) Personen. Vor allem die Küche enthält genügend Geschirr und alle Geräte, die man im Alltag nicht vermissen möchte (wie Kaffeemaschine, Geschirrspüler, Mikrowelle etc., sogar ein Kühlschrank mit Gefrierfach ist vorhanden). Sehr angenehm fanden wir auch die Ausstattung mit einer Toilette auf jeder Etage und den kleinen Abstellraum im EG.

Unsere Kinder waren von dem großen, sehr sauberen Pool (schräg gegenüber des Hauses) begeistert. Zum Meer sind es ca. 600 m, also zu Fuß gut erreichbar (es gibt aber auch genügend Parkmöglichkeiten direkt am Strand). Einkaufsmöglichkeiten (Supermarkt, Bäcker) gibt es in unmittelbarer Nähe.

Wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt. Überhaupt wirkte die gesamte Anlage sehr gepflegt. Auch unsere Rückfragen im Vorfeld wurden vom Vermieter immer umgehend beantwortet. Kurz vor der Anreise erhielten wir unaufgefordert wichtige Informationen rund um das Objekt sowie Tipps zur Umgebung, was vor Ort sehr hilfreich war. Wir werden auf jeden Fall wiederkommen.

Superb holiday home

  • 5 of 5

This holiday home is exactly what it says, you couldn't ask for anything better, all the house amenities were in good working order, its spacious, light and airy. The food package on arrival is very much appreciated, a lovely touch. The house was very clean, and Angela was very welcoming.

The shared pool was opposite the house, (and most of the time we were there, we shared it with maybe one other family) my girls enjoyed it (aged 6 &11) It was great for a last dip after a day on the beach. The beach is 10mins away, and the nearest supermarket is on the way to the beach. The town has a variety of restaurants, and takeaways, it's about 15min walk away.

There are some lovely beaches a short drive away, Leucate and Argeles north, and the Pyrenees make a lovely backdrop. If you fancy some shopping, there is a retail park about 15min drive away, at Claira (just off of the D83) Food (Carrefour), clothing, household shops, restaurants.

We hope to return to this holiday home, and we would highly recommend it to our friends and family.
