A Month In Fitou

  • 5 of 5

The villa was everything that was advertised, spacious and light, extremely comfortable with English TV so you don't have to miss your favourite programs, 4 good sized bedrooms 2 with en-suite and a family bathroom. All bedrooms open onto its own terrace, all superbly furnished. What I wasn't expecting was the stunning views of the lakes and the Med from the terrace and the snow capped Pyrenees in the distance. Every activity imaginable is within a short driving distance, from windsurfing to white water rafting, exploring castles and museums and the ancient streets of Narbonne and Perpignan. The beaches of beautiful cream sand are within easy reach with plenty of places to eat if you get hungry after soaking up the sun all day. Spain is less than an hour away and well worth a shopping trip. What can I say about the mountains? Spectacular views of them, and then the trips to explore them with surprises around every bend of deep valleys with tiny villages nestling in splendid isolation. We spent a month on holiday I wish it had been six. Glen and Geraldine were brilliant, helpful in every way without being intrusive. All in all we can't wait to go back.

Ideal if you want a quiet escape

  • 4 of 5

If you want an escape from it all in a picturesque area of France then this property is ideal. Situated a short, hilly, walk from the small village of Fitou where you are can get your bread and wine, as well as a number of good restaurants (the Moulin particularly) this is a great escape for a group of adults, or families with a number of children. We were a group with two less mobile grandparents who struggled with the hills and a single toddler who got bored round the pool so a car was necessary to keep everyone happy.

However, 15 minutes drive away was Leucate with a Carrefour and beach, so shopping and child entertainment were covered. There are also some great restaurants on the front.

Take time to go to Perpignan and Carcassonne, both worth trips. And I mustn't forget to add the Castle, a quirky bar which has bands on during the week, well worth a trip over.

The house needs a bit of TLC but the owners are open to suggestions as to what they could do to make it better (it had been a long term let so they are just restocking it). The pool is clean and the surrounds so quiet we often thought we were the only people there.

great holiday home near fitou.

  • 5 of 5

the holiday home had everything needed for a great holiday and more. as a family we have rented various properties in the south of France and this house is up there with the best. the pool is superb, with plenty of room around the pool itself for sun bathing or for children to play. the bedrooms were roomy with one bedroom downstairs which we used for the children. the location is stunning, with views that take your breath away. i would recommend this house for a brilliant family holiday.

We nicknamed the villa "villa-fantastic".

  • 5 of 5

The villa was spotlessly clean on arrival. We were met by the owner who provided us with the knowledge we needed. The villa was situated about a five to ten minute walk from the village. The villa had wireless internet, English Sky TV, plenty of utensils, cutlery and crockery. The pool was lovely and clean as was the garden. The three bathrooms and toilets were great as we had five adults and one child in our party. The bedrooms were clean and spacious with plenty of wardrobe space. The outside seating area was an added bonus this is where we ate all our meals. We would highly recommend this villa and would gladly return. We ate out only in Vidal restaurant and it was beautiful. The beach is about fifteen to twenty minutes by car but well worth it. The nearest good supermarket is also by the beach in Leucate village.

Wonderful vacation in lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

A perfect location to spend your holidays! The sea is near, the winemakers are near, the mountains are near, the pitoresque village is near - this region has it all!!

We can highly recommend this villa! The owners are easygoing and easy to get in touch with. The villa has a splendid view to enjoy while eating, lounging or sunbathing! The pool was the perfect size for our children and for grown ups to cool down (hot summer)! Nice rooms and a well equiped house! A 5-10 minute walk to a the village bakery and there are good wine producers located in the village.

We already want to go back!

Spacious,modern, well appointed villa.New this year, so looked unused and very clean. Lovely position,very quiet,stunning views. Totally lived up to its description. Met by owner on arrival.

Excellent beach @ Leucate plage, excellent restaurants both in Fitou and Leucate village. Particularly ''Le Jardin des Filoche'' if you like fine dining. Excellent oysters @ Leucate Port.

Fitou village is located on the Mediterranean coast, next to stunning sand beaches. It is also a typical wine village with several “caves” where you can taste wine. The village is only half an hour from the towns of Narbonne and Perpignan which are great for shopping and “café culture”. A bit further a field Carcassone and its fairytale fortress can be the start of a tour of the stunning Cathars castles in Peyrepertuse and Queribus amongst others. If you like touring Spain is only 40 minutes away and you can get to the mountains in an hour and a half.

Other Activities: Kite surfing, sand yachting, wine tasting, climbing, safari park, water park, tree top adventure park.
