Lovely family holiday

  • 4 of 5

We returned from Montalba on 12/08/17 having spent a fortnight there. We have had a great time. The property itself is comfortable and well equipped. Ideal for a family of 4 (Mum, Dad, 19 year old daughter and 16 year old son). The house itself had sufficient space for us all. A very comfortable sitting area, pleasant kitchen, comfy beds, basic bathroom facilities. French cable TV channels. Super, flat screen TV and DVD player. Average internet access (it dipped in and out according to the weather). This property is ideally situated for visits to the coast (Collioure is a must), the Cathar castles (Queberus and Pereypertuse well worth a visit), Carcassone (not so great), Perpignan (super) as well as for walks in the hills and access to the beautiful villages in the area. The only reason it hasn't scored 5 stars is that the property was rather dirty on arrival, the bed linen/towels weren't great quality and the outside space attached to the property was rather characterless. It is also worth noting we had to pay an additional 320 euros, in cash, to the house cleaner on arrival. 100 euros for her to meet us and to clean the property, 20 euros for one set of sheets and towels (for us all for the 2 weeks) and a further 200 euros as a security deposit which was handed back on our departure. It would have been helpful if we had known about this additional cash requirement at the point of booking this holiday.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. We took notice of the fact that the house was dirty on your arrival. I discussed that in the meantime with my housekeeper who will pay more attention to it next time. I refunded you the 100 euros for the cleaning.

Groot verzorgd huis

  • 4 of 5

Wij vonden dit een aangenaam huis om te verblijven met ons gezin (2 volwassenen en 3 kinderen (9 - 5 jaar).

Alles was voorhanden, zowel in de keuken als in de woonkamer.

Buiten had je twee terrassen waar het aangenaam vertoeven was.

Op 7 kilometer afstand bevind zich een klein stadje waar we onze inkopen konden doen. Ook om uitstapjes te doen moest je niet ver rijden( 30 minuten tot aan 't strand). De natuur is er heel mooi en het is er relatief rustig in vergelijking met de Provence in de zomer. De conciërge is een aangename vrouw die ons vriendelijk begroette na zes uur fileleed en er geen probleem van maakte om rond 6 uur 's morgens de dag van vertrek langs te komen voor de afrekening. Ik kan dit huis ten zeerste aanraden.

Appréciation sur notre séjour à Montalba

  • 5 of 5

Site enchanteur, grande maison admirablement aménagée qui sait associer le charme ancestral au confort moderne. Il n'y manque absolument rien. La description des lieux est très fidèle à la réalité. Paysage à couper le souffle. Le propriétaire a pensé à tout. On se sent immédiatement chez soi malgré le dépaysement ! Idéal pour ceux qui recherchent des vacances loin des centres, et au cœur d'une campagne magnifique.

Le propriétaire n'avait pas menti en disant qu'il y avait une foule de sites naturels époustouflants à découvrir dans un rayons de 50 km, et plus si vous aimez faire de la route. Gestionnaire sur place fiable et ponctuel. Peut-être un peu pressé de nous voir partir le jour du départ. Mais que voulez-vous, on doit tous y laisser un peu de son cœur en quittant.

Une merveille - un trésor - un paradis

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé des vacances à 6 dans cette maison magnifique, qui se découvre de fur à mesure, car elle est tellement charmante et pleine de surprises. Que se soit les multiples petites terrasses, la vue inoubliable sur le Canigou, ou l'ensemble tellement bien aménagé. Avec goût et finesse! Et la situation de ce petit village adorable est top! Environ 45 min à la plage et pleins d'activités "montagne" autour, comme le fameux Chateau de Peyrepertuse. Les enfants en parlent encore! Et maintenant: pas plus de pub... On aimerai bien revenir un jour... :-) Merci et Bravo aux propriétaires!

Très agréable endroit.

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons trouvé une maison qui nous a ravis..Toute en pierres ,très propre et très joliment décorée..De la place pour tous:petits et grands ont apprécié le confort..

Deux petits bémols néanmoins:

-une forte odeur de mazout provenant du sous-sol à notre arrivée mais il a suffi d'aérer correctement.

-le prix un peu élevé du nettoyage pour une semaine car nous avons laissé la maison telle que nous l'avions trouvée.

Owner's Response: Un grand merci d’avoir pris le temps pour rédiger une appréciation si sympathique. Elle constitue un encouragement à poursuivre nos efforts d’attention. Le problème d'odeur de mazout est reglé entre-temps et ne se reproduira plus.Quant au prix de nettoyage, nous avons derterminé ce prix en accord avec l'équipe de nettoyage en suivant la superficie de la maison (220 m²). Bien cordialement.

Spacious holiday home for rent (220 m²) for 6 to 7 people in the middle of Cathar country. Our home printable page is at the foot of the castle in an authentic village. In addition, Montalba is a classified site with 130 inhabitants. Come relax in this island of peace, uncrowded, in a green and quiet environment, among the vineyards with breathtaking views of the Pic du Canigou.

From Montalba, you are not far from the many opportunities to visit: the wine cellars, the abbays, the site of the Organ, the ruins of the Cathars, caves, museums, spas ... The Cathar country offers you lots of walks to do. In addition, you are 30 km from the sea and an hour from the ski resorts.

What do you think of a visit to Perpignan, a city full of surprises and with a good atmosphere especially on Thursday evenings in summer. Or do you prefer to stay in Barcelona or Andorra? By car, you're in two hours!

If you're more athletic? The Pyrérées Orientales gives you a huge choice. And for foodies, of course Catalan cuisine is worth the trip to the south of France. Discover this region that guarantees more than 300 sunny days a year.
